: That being said. It is insulting that an otherwise smart person like Randall couldn't see the different aspects of pickup and rather just go with the popular "creep" definition. Then again, Baret Guy is just a cliche asshole. Maybe that's the lesson, neither pickup artists nor assholes are good choices for women.

::What do you two think that the phrase ''pickup artist'' literally means? If you want to develop into a good and honest person, how could the way be to learn ''pickup'' '''''tricks''''' aiming to seduce and ''fuck'' women? If you meet someone that wants to learn to be more romantic, suggest them to read {{w|Pride and Prejudice}}, or watch {{w|Casablanca (film)|Casablanca}}. –[[User:St.nerol|St.nerol]] ([[User talk:St.nerol|talk]]) 20:03, 22 January 2013 (UTC)

Trying to be a "Romantic" upon first meeting a girl is going to crash and burn 99/100 HARD. The reason being, romance is wonderful when you are already IN a relationship, but it is a terrible way to start. The hollywood version of "Romance" isn't even anywhere NEAR what a real healthy relationship full of problems and compromises and arguments and give and take is. As one of those "Nerds" with crippling social anxiety I tried that. I watched Casablanca, wonderful film. I grew up treating every girl/woman I met as though they where a princess. I was the most romantic person I could possibly be. It got me nowhere. Actually it got me called a creep on dozens of occasions. The few times a woman would respond favorably she was just using me for whatever petty bs she wanted at the time, rides, drinks, etc.
