The only routine I ever use is the Cube, hs chicks dig that shit
I've literally used that in every set i've closed. Its barely even necessary to do anything past it. I've had some closes where its gone as simply as open>dhv>cube>kino>close within 20 minutes.
i've modified it a bit and combined elements of body language and nlp from other literature i've read, so its a bit more vamped for me.
On another note: when i discovered the game my sophomore year in high school, i quickly developed a personality where i became a very popular social giant in the school. as in, i went from a competitive video game nerd to one of the most saught after guys in school. thus, i think that one of the most critical and important elements of teenage/highschool pickup is popularity. its basically one of the best dhv's i have and i dont even necessarily have to convey it. enough so that when i meet a new group, they'll all have known of me or know my name and face before we'd even met. One time i was even walking with a target and some guy in our grade comes up and starts brown nosing and says he wishes he were me.. i dont accredit myself any of this, but rather know that its completely as a result of adopting pick up into my personality, which is what we're all here to do! Right?
secondly, with hs pickup-there is one HUGE DANGER ive experienced: when playing with girls, i've learned to become really really careful of social circles and even girls inside my own school. the problem is, if a set goes badly, or an hb becomes needy, or jealous, ect ect...its potentially like a cancer cell that multiplies and spreads itself all over your body: in effect, girls who get butthurt tend to try and spread magnificent amounts of shit about me to other friends and groups. fortunately when this has happened, my popularity has overridden their shit-talking, and people never take the girl seriously. But even so, i've become really cautious to take that risk-so i try and leave my real pick up for outside of my own highschool population. this way, i've always got the option of picking up a girl within my own school if i really want, but at the same time im galvanizing my popularity and expanding my social horizons without much consequence when i pick up girls from outside my school.
In summation: popularity = very critical pick up element. Also, be careful of who u fuck [over].
There are most definitely other ways of becoming excellent at pick up while remaining really low key and without needing popularity, but this is simply what's worked best for me. Furthermore, with popularity comes invitation-wherein i'll be invited to several hs parties every weekend, which is prime opportunity to sarge because there'r hb's from other schools too. and also its not like daygame, which a huge deal of hs pickup is, but conversely, is more like the regular club and bar game hat most of pickup is tailored to.
fun fact: after discovering pick up, i've recently adopted a lot of nlp into my pua persona. One of the first instances of success i had was essentially persuading my english teacher to give me an A on a paper that was due the next day. I wrote it, not the night before it was due, but the next day, an hr before class started, on a book i'd never read, and even walked in late to hand it in, no excuse, nothing. I'd tried on her papers before, but had never been able to ace one. 2 weeks later i got it back with an A. if anyone wants, i can explain that set in more detail. pm me.
