Agree with gq1 and AE. If it wasn't for "Pickup-artist" content I wouldn't realise many things that make me seem boring and unattractive. I still have lots to learn and improve on but the actually useful pickup content can be a guide to improving your life for many social and even non-social aspects.

I think part of the problem lies in that, to teach something, you have to give it structure so that it is easier to understand. But some people assume structure means a formula that always works or somehow manipulates women.
