- "All PUA Routines/Knowledge at your fingertips!" by Sheek ------------------------------------This is the forum database for all routines, techniques, and tips related to
pickup. We hope this will continue to evolve, with members adding content every day. Enjoy!
NOTE: This is a proper database file that many aPUAs will use to boost their game. That means you
need to make an effort to type your work nicely (no typos, use capitals, et cetera). I (Sheek) periodically
go through all the material in this file to fix grammar and spelling issues, but it would be very helpful if
all contributions are made as well-polished as possible. Nobody wants to read net slang and
paragraph-long run-on sentences. Make an effort.
How to use:
New! The PUA Writing section consists of writing & ideas from the top pickup gurus.
The Outer Game/Mystery Method specifics section focuses on the technique and a structural method part
of pickup. Increase your outer game to boost success, and to compliment your inner game. These
techniques are referred to as "Canned Material," and it is recommended that you memorize routines to
run in the various phases of the Mystery Method. These are especially helpful during the newbie mission
(NM), in which you should be using only canned routines.
The Inner Game & Frame section is about your mindset and personal frame. As you become better at
inner game, routines and canned material become less significant. Confidence, body language, aspirations;
they're all here.
The Other/General Techniques section consists of miscellaneous material that we couldn't fit elsewhere.
New! The Fashion & Grooming section is composed of fashion tips, general grooming advice, & cologne
guides. Look for GameBoy's Grooming Guide on the MysteryMethod forums for more. Contributors:

HOW TO HIT ON A WOMAN
You cannot indicate your interest (IOI) to a woman until she has first indicated her interest to you. The
ATTRACT STAGE has 3 phases: 1) OPEN - to get you into her group and in front of the girl 2) F2M
female to male attract - to get her attracted to you and 3) M2F male to female attract to show that you
have grown attracted to her for legitimized reasons.
Assuming you have completed phases 1 and 2, its time to move onto phase 3.
You may have already read about QUALIFYING principles. Many concepts about qualifying are
incorporated into phase 3 of MM. The idea is to make a woman demonstrate a higher value to you
(BAIT her into telling you INTERESTING THINGS about herself - not "What do you do?") so when
she replies (HOOKing her to give you information) you can IOI her (REEL her in) only to push her off
(RELEASE her from the pressure of being hit on). This occurs several times.
So the phase 3 sequence is: BAIT, HOOK, REEL, RELEASE.
Here is an example for you to use in-field right away.
YOU: What nationality are you?
YOU: Seriously? No WAY!!! The girl I had the biggest crush on in high school was French! I can't even
talk to you now.
Everytime she gives you a DHV (demonstration of higher value) you IOI her. This way she will believe
your IOIs and when you fully SOI her, she will feel like she deserves it. This allows your attraction for
her to letitimately GROW over several minutes instead of just IOIing her because she first IOI'd you.
Since an important aspect of MM is to restructure routines to be in context with YOUR IDENTITY in
particular, take the time to write up some personalized phase 3 routines with this format. Afterall, I'm
pretty sure YOU didn't have your first crush on a girl who was French right? Write 3 to 5 routines right
Here is one more example I used literally the night before writing this:
ME: If you could be anything in the world with no chance of failure, what would you want to be? And
don't say "Princess" haa.
HER: Um, an actress.
ME: Really? When I was little I wanted to grow up and be a magician. And you know what I am now?
A magician! So you want to be an actress. I'm living proof that our dreams can come true. It would be so
cool if you were an actress. I LOVE THAT! We need to figure out how to make that happen. I bet
you'd be an amazing actress. But what if you get more attention than I? I can't even hang out with you
Again, make yours congruent with your identity. You do not have to be a magician to do MM, but you
do need a strong identity as I have.
I learned something from a good friend of mine yesterday. He said, "You are what you repeatedly do." Page 5 Well, I performed some magic for the woman I later met (about 25 minutes after meeting her). I love to
perform magic and find myself doing so many times every week. That makes me a magician. What do
There are some F2M routines that are exceptions to the phase 3 format such as when you are
complimenting a woman's beauty, but since that is potentially dangerous, I'll leave ANATOMICAL
COMPLIMENTS for another time. Pa ge 6 - Use backstory.
1) Past (childhood). "when i was a kid, i wanted to be..."
2) How you got from 1-3 "I did ...(relating to 1) when i was a teenager"
3) What you are now. "and now im..." Conveys idea of "When i was a regular Joe..." ---> "Now, I'm ____ ." Things to say/use:
- "Can you believe it?"
-"isnt it interesting that if you apply yourself to something, you can do anything?"
Mystery on Building an Identity
I read an article recently by my good buddy Thundercat that said:
"But what Mystery does, though teachable, is very much a style tailored to Mystery. He is successful at
what he does because no one else can really imitate him. That's what makes Tyler so amazing to observe.
Tyler does the same things as Mystery, but WITHOUT the magic tricks. Yet he is still able to create
IMMENSE value for himself. How does he do this? Well, from what I've gathered, his method is more
relatable to normal guys like me, because anyone with the proper skillset can use Tyler's methods to
create value for themselves."
Thundercat's misunderstanding between a person's customized style and the game plan or method he
uses to systematically convey his unique personality concerns me. This is because only a few days ago
did we share a 3:00am meal at a diner after our visit to an exotic dance club together.
During our meal Thundercat himself admitted that he doesn't possess a strong identity as I do. I will
attempt to resolve his misunderstanding between STYLE and METHOD as well as reveal some insights
on how to specifically customize material to convey a unique identity (for both you and my friend
Thundercat). Once you customize your material to fit your chosen "strong identity" will you no doubt
make others who watch you work wrongfully assume it is your particular identity that gets you the girls
and not the method that powers the conveying of it.
(Thundercat's complete article may be found here
As those who have taken a Mystery Method seminar know, MM consists of three main areas:
PART 1. A format (or game plan) which has 3 stages, each with 3 phases.
PART 2. Mental tools to get you from phase to phase (isolation tactics, kiss tactics, extraction tactics,
PART 3. Scripts and personality conveying material (content) to fill in each of the 9 phases.
While parts 1 and 2 (the MM format and it's tactics) don't change from person to person, part 3 Page 7 (personality conveying material) does. We each possess a unique identity. You are not me. I am a
magician. My wing Style is a writer. Tyler D. is a public speaker. Does this mean you have to be a
magician, a writer, or a public speaker in order to attract women? Of course not! But what you DO need
is what Style, Tyler D. and I share in common: we each possess a strong identity. Style, Tyler D. and I
have each customized our material to convey our strong and unique personalities. That is, in fact, the
PURPOSE of personality conveying material. It certainly would be counter-productive to convey that
you are a magician if you aren't one. Nor a writer or public speaker for that matter.
Tyler D. and Style use the same game plan or method that I do. How do I know? Because we adapted
my original (and now out-of-date) FMAC method into a powerful algorithm together (M3). Both are
former students of mine, turned teachers. And yes they have both taught me as much about the game as I
have them since we began. (Style lives in the same house as I, and Tyler D. is here too, visiting.) While
we all use the same method, we have customized the material so that we each have a different style. In
fact, Tyler D.'s style is still evolving. His identity has, for a long time, been one with few attractive
qualities: a student. This may be the reason why Thundercat, in misunderstanding the difference between
method and style, has concluded that Tyler D.'s material is more applicable to "normal guys" than mine.
What this reveals please me: The identity I have chosen is strong enough to confuse even a close friend.
What Style, Tyler D. and I do when we teach others the game is give examples of field-tested personality
conveying routines to students. Should our students stick to this STOCK material forever? No way!
What they should do is identify who they are and swap out our stock examples for customized stories
from their real life as soon as possible. The reason they are given examples is so that they can appreciate
what constitutes a good personality conveying routine. Some amazing routines are thankfully generic
enough to share ("The Cube" routine for instance), while others must by their very nature be unique to
Like mine, some of Thundercat's material should possess a common theme. He will use this material to
draw his target into his world (and not into Mystery's world or Tyler D.'s world). Thundercat's material
must specifically suit his identity. Each person who uses MM will ultimately swap out the stock routines
we teach them and use original material over time.
I am now revealing this idea outside of my private lounge for the first time here:
GROUNDING: HOW TO GROUND YOUR IDENTITY TO YOUR TARGET'S REALITY WITH
I'm sure you've found yourself in a set and have reached the point where your target says, "What do you
do?" You either give her your honest but lame answer like, "I'm a student", or "I'm a system's
administrator", or worse, you try to circumvent the question entirely with "I'm an ass model."
The problem is you don't have an attractive identity, or if you do, it's not a strong one. Some guys will
experiment with "I'm a rockstar", or "I'm a promoter", or "I'm a public speaker", but your target will
either feel you are lying (in the same way we believe an "actress" is likely a "waitress"), or if they DO
believe your evidence, they become intimidated when you get weighed down by the stereotype they have
If instead of answering her question "What do you do" with "I'm " you can ground your present identity to
her reality and harness the opportunity to convey a much richer personality. Here's how you do it.
1. "Well when I was little I wanted to be a ."
2. "When I was a teenager happened." Tell stories about how you got from 1 to 3. Page 8 3. "Now I'm . Can you believe it?"
Here is the applied format that I used to ground my identity to a recent HB9's reality. It helped to attract
her and build enough comfort to get her back to my place. (Not the exotic dancer but another girl.)
1. What do I do? When I was young I wanted to be a magician.
2. Tell story of my first birthday party magic show and how the money was used to see a Copperfield
show. (5 minute story.)
2.1 Tell story of how my biggest audience scared the shit out of me and how I went up and kicked ass. I
really get into the fear of it all. (3 minute story.)
2.2 Talk about my first real TV experience. (2 minute story.)
2.3 Tell her about moving to Hollywood and why. This is a "vulnerability routine" in C&T stage. (3
3.0 Tell her what is now on my plate - my WTF? underground internet show, my TV reality show
interest, the book I'm writing, and my seminars on various topics such as social dynamics and wealth
building. (5 minutes of stories.)
3.1 Tell her what I am planning on doing next - illusion show concepts, publicity stunts, etc. (5 minutes of
That was at least 23 minutes of story-telling and I was holding this beautiful girl long before I performed
any magic. The reason magic works for me of course is because I'm a magician. As Thundercat noted in
his article, "Tyler does the same things as Mystery, but WITHOUT the magic tricks. Yet he is still able to
create IMMENSE value for himself." This is, to me, compelling evidence to support that you do not need
to use my style or do magic in any way to use MM. Tyler D. performs no magic what-so-ever yet can
still, by sticking to the method and running his unique personality conveying material, attract women like
moths to a flame. Just don't go running around telling women you conduct workshops on social dynamics
if you don't. Learn more about my good buddy Tyler D. at . His close
friend and business partner Papa lives in my house.
If I just come in and say "I'm a magician", my target really wouldn't feel that we share commonalities or
lifestyle. She would have to rely on stereotyping. I would also not appear very humble. She would feel
that I'm too different for her and I would otherwise over-qualify myself. Some women it seems would
actually reject a date with George Clooney because they don't understand his lifestyle - they feel they
lack commonality and this lack creates discomfort. But what if he gave her his back-story and taught her
what happened, step-by-step, to him to become who he is today? This is the concept of GROUNDING
By giving my target my back-story, I ground myself to her reality ("When I was as a regular Joe") so that
she could see how she too could be the type of person I now am ("This is who I am today") if only she
were to make similar decisions along the way. You can even later use this format to encourage your
target to ground HER life to YOU during the F2M attract phase by having her stick to the format. Simply
ask, "Woah. Back up. So what happened next?"
Notice in my list of grounding stories above that the common theme is "This is what lead me to become
who I am today." Thundercat too must do this - once he decides what his identity in fact IS. Does this
mean he must steal my identity to do MM? No. He won't be telling stories of his first birthday party
magic show. That would be a lie. He won't talk about how he learned the secret to a card trick by
beating it out of a classmate of his, or how years later that classmate saw him on TV and said, "I can't
believe your future changed that day." No, he won't use my specific material. Nor will you. But both you
and Thundercat will use material from your own real life experiences as I do. The format or game plan is
the Mystery Method. The personalized MATERIAL you use to fill in the format is what constitutes your Page 9 style.
If Tyler D. for instance says "I'm a public speaker", what does that mean to his target? She can only go
by an accepted stereotype and unless she herself is a public speaker (commonality) he needs to explain
how he became one. He must explain that if she did the same things he did, she too would be a public
speaker. If he were to say, "I travel the world giving lectures on social dynamics", he would likely
over-qualify himself. If he instead said, "Well, when I was in school I went to this seminar" and "I started
to help the lecturer for shits and giggles" and then "I taught a little bit at the seminars", he would be
grounding his reality to hers. He could then continue with "I started traveling with them for fun during the
summer" and then "I put together my own seminar and conducted it for the first time with the help of my
friend Papa. It was exciting and I was nervous", and on and on all the way to "Now I travel the world,
people look up to me and I make mad cash ... can you believe it? I never would have thought I could do
it if you said I'd be doing this 10 yrs ago", he would be grounding his reality to hers using my grounding
method and his own original back-story material.
Now, how does one answer the deep question, "Who am I?" A friend of mine told me, "You are what
you repeatedly do."
I do magic on a regular basis. I perform it almost every day, whether for a beautiful woman or any other
other person. Style writes almost every day (and gets paid for it, making him a full-time professional).
Tyler D. mostly focuses on conducting seminars and workshops. What do YOU do on a regular basis?
Besides being a social butterfly that is. Remember, the pick-up arts exists to enrich your life, not define it.
What stories do you already possess that convey who you have become today?
GROUNDING REALITY is far reaching. It will change the way you M2F attract, F2M attract, and
build COMFORT but will not alter their basic structure. It will also change the way you choose and
structure routines, sequence them (which routines you will use and when), and convey to your target the
way you handle challenges in your life.
So this is what you must now do to improve your game:
1. Figure out who YOU are by looking at what you DO repeatedly - something you can say in a word or
two. (ex: magician, writer, toy inventor, CEO, hacker, rock climber, rapper, public speaker, traveler)
2. Come up with several stories that convey how you got from being a normal kid to doing what you
3. Practice telling these stories to others to make the stories enthusiastic and natural.
