I've taken the liberty of finding common terms used in the community and gathering them to be assembled here for reference. Enjoy and please do add more if you can. (This took a long time to type out so please be respectful, If I've missed something let me know)

AA - Approach Anxiety: Fear of approaching a set or girl due to an already assumed rejection.

AFC—noun [average frustrated chump]: a stereotypical nice guy who has no pickup skills or understanding of what attracts women; a man who tends to engage in supplicative and wimpy patterns of behavior around women he has not yet slept with. [Origin: Ross Jeffries.]

ANCHOR—1. noun: an external stimulus (a sight, sound, or touch) that triggers a specific emotional or behavioral response, such as a song that makes one happy because it's reminiscent of a positive life event.

Origin: Richard Bandler and John Grinder.

ASD—noun [anti-slut defense]: the maneuvers some women make to avoid taking responsibility for initiating or agreeing to sex; or in order to avoid appearing slutty to the man she is with, to her friends, to society, or to herself.

pickup artist uses with the intention of seducing a woman who has a boyfriend.

BUYING TEMPERATURE—noun: the degree to which a woman is ready to make intimate physical contact with a man. Unlike attraction, a high buying temperature generally appears and fades quickly.

YAWBG stands for Yet Another Wanna-Be Guru

It has become very commonplace in the seduction community for a new guy to show up and think he's going to be the next big guru. These guys typically want immediate respect even though they are offering nothing of real value and are generally just spouting repackaged ideas from mASF.

Typically they are people who show up with no previous posting history, have a product already, no new insight because that product is only a rehash of existing material and they expect immediate respect and sales becuase ... they're a Guru!!!

If you see someone you think might be YAWBG just click Back on your browser and go find some useful material to read.

Seduction isn't making someone do what they don't want to do.Seduction is enticing someone into doing what they secretly want to do already.

Welcome to MPUAForum, one of the popular forums in the seduction community! You have embarked on a journey that can only be described as life changing. I would like to give you new guys a general introduction to pickup, answers to Frequently Asked Questions, and a list of various books and blogs that may help you on your travels through the world of pickup. I highly recommend at least skimming this thread to see if there is anything covered in here that you may want to ask immediately. If your question isn't covered in this overview feel free to post your questions in this section or log in to the PUA Chat to talk with guys that are online right now.

Intro to the Pickup Arts

For those of you unsure as to what "pickup" is, this will be your quick explanation as to what it is we do here. Pickup is the art of meeting and attracting women; whether it be for a same night lay (SNL) or a long-term relationship (LTR). This community is here to help YOU learn to do just that. There are countless guys in this community that will be ecstatic to help you and answer your questions. The only CAUTION that I must inform you of is that....this isn't easy, it takes work. You will only succeed at this if you dedicate yourself to improvement; not success, improvement. Every man deserves whatever he deigns to achieve. This community can help you achieve almost anything you want socially. ENJOY

Unnatural vs. Natural

There are countless ways to go about meeting and attracting the women of your dreams, but the concepts are relatively the same. Today, "game" can be divided into two categories: natural and unnatural. Unnatural game for a long time had been the staple of the seduction community. It included routines, canned-material, NLP, and etc. These approaches, however effective, aren't "natural" because they are calculated and planned out.

Natural Game is currently a growing trend within the community. The idea behind it is that to be natural, your interaction must flow with spontaneity from the moment you approach and open the girl. You display your naturally attractive personality in the interaction because this is "how you are."

A major problem people often run into when using unnatural game is when it comes to creating a long-term relationship. You weren't "being yourself" when you met and therefore not congruent with who you would be in the relationship. However, this is all assuming that you want to get in a relationship in the first place.

There are currently many long-standing schools of thought in pickup that teach tried and true scripted material. As of now, more and more natural game schools of thought are springing up almost every day.

Schools of Pickup

There are many PUA companies/groups to learn from. Each has its own approach to social interaction. There are similarities that you will see in some, and some universal concepts that all share. In any case you can find a direction to go. They are all proven successful approaches of pickup. For more information on each of the various school's you may go to their respective websites and check each one out yourself.

1. Venusian Arts/Mystery Method/Love Systems - Mystery/Savoy
Mystery Method, commonly referred to as MM, focuses on a linear step-by-step model of seduction combined with using scripted routines.

2. Gunwitch Method - Gunwitch
Gunwitch Method, commonly referred to as GWM, is a straightforward method of getting laid using sexual state and economic mindsets.

3. Speed Seduction - Ross Jeffries
Speed Seduction, commonly referred to as SS, is a mostly verbal method of seduction that utilizes many aspects of NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and hypnosis. SS was the first major school in the seduction community.

4. Double Your Dating - David DeAngelo
Double Your Dating, commonly referred to as DYD, was the first school to explain seduction and dating in terms of evolutionary psychology. Its teachings focus on being "Cocky and Funny" and branch out into several other topics of seduction and manhood. DYD bleeds heavily into Natural Game.

Some Natural Game-focused companies in good standing:
1. PUA Training - Gambler
2. Vin DiClassified - Vin DiCarlo
3. Real Social Dynamics - Tyler Durden
4. Charisma Arts - Juggler
5. Enlightened Seduction - Zan Perrion

For more information on any specific company, go here:

New to this as well, and didn't really know where to start, so I was jumping into various threads and seeing terms that I didn't have a clue what they meant. I would probably have ended up posting numerous, annoying posts asking what such and such a term was.

I'm pretty excited about getting into this, bcos my success with women was laughable. I know myself that I am a guy worth dating, but I just am not able to present myself in such a way that is appealing to women. I hope this can help me overcome some of my anxiety and just help me develop my all round personality. Its easy to see how this can be applied to other areas of my life.

But this is a must read for all newbies. Actually, I started a thread that was requesting help with a game plan, in terms of where to start off and what areas to look at.

Is there any useful threads that lay out basic, not set-in-stone models for how interaction may pan out, and where the various concepts come into play.

For example, a thread that takes you through the chronological steps of an encounter like: Approaching - Opening - DHV - closing
Literally something for someone starting off, just to know what basics to have, that can then be later expanded on?

Again though, thanks a million of this!

This reminds of trying to learn pig latin when I was a kid. It was so fun to talk to your friends in code and you really felt like you were part of a club. I definitely will be learning these terms and listening to see if men are using them to describe me and certainly will have fun augmenting them to fit women. He~he!!! Now, please don't take this the wrong way as I meant this post as a positive comment on the language of pick up artist and please before you flame me... I in no way meant and/or was referring to a pig. Geez... so sensitive :roll:
Fantastic post. Very well organized and informative. Thank you!!!

what the bloody does ESP stand for??

can't find it anywhere
1. ESP
Extra-Sensory-Perception. Often referred to as "The sixth Sense". Often used in conversation when one makes a lucky guess as to what someone is about to say.
M.C. Hammer: I want to-

Patrick Surtain: SLEEP!

M.C. Hammer: Hey! I was just going to say that!

Patrick Surtain: I must have ESP!

I would say this term isn't commonly used in the PUA community, but has obviously been brought up if your asking about it. It can be a great addition to your game, assuming you make the lucky guess of what a woman is going to say. It will give more potential to build a strong connection, if you haven't already. Don't over try ESP though, or else it just might get annoying.

Thanks, very enlightening.. I thought I knew most of them already but it seems like there's more and more every time I read one of these. I think this is the best one I've seen up to date.

MM/Savoy teach you basework on how to be an overall great PUA.

They go in very technical and aren't "natural" to speak.

Being natural is in fact harder because it's not something you generally learn right away. Conclusively, systematic game (scripted/ robot game/ MM) is easier to learn and, in my opinion, is a "better" PUA method than "natural" because a "Natural" can fuck up much easier, because he's improvising.

Gunwitch method is good if you want fast lays. "Get a girl to fuck you, not like you"

Gunwitch also went on long rambles about value and looks etc that aren't really useful. (Like math about looks compared to personality etc), good book to read, though, the more knowledge the more power!

Ross Jeffries is also the same concept as Gunwitch, fast lays. (kinda in a hurry or I'd describe it more)

I'd suggest reading all of them.

Surprisingly, this post is very nice and Jsquared actually posted something I liked.

But he sometimes says stupid stuff...
