Have Seduction Techniques Gone Mainstream ? Is the pick up line dead?

The latest reality TV show is all about giving advice to men looking to pick-up girls. There are seduction blogs out there too – teaching guys, mostly, how to finesse women into bed.


Downloadable e-books on flirting techniques and seduction tips, seminars and video lessons it seems there’s a wealth of information out there, good bad or indifferent. “So what?” you say, “men have always been chasing women”.

Well that’s very true but the fact is that the majority aren’t very good at it – in fact they are either too shy, too aggressive, tongue-tied or masters of the worst cliche pick-up lines of all time. You know the sort of thing:

I may not be Fred Flintstone, but I bet I can make your Bed Rock.

My love for you is like the Energizer bunny, it keeps going and going.

If you were a new hamburger at McDonald’s, you would be McGorgeous.

Excuse me, do you have your phone number, I’ve seem to have lost mine.

I’m new in town, could I have directions to your house.

I can’t find my puppy, can you help me find him? I think he went into this cheap motel room.

Be honest they were lucky getting into your bed kif any of the above worked!

While a lot of the information out there is crap there’s some serious psychological stuff out there too which is based on suggestion techniques used by hypnotists, top salesmen and more. Some of it really does work, it’s not obvious (or it wouldn’t work).

So what does this mean? It means that previously faithful partners who have remained faithful so far due solely to the limitations in their dating techniques and/or confidence suddenly come to the realisation that, maybe, if they buy or subscribe to these products they could become a ‘Player’ and pick up beautiful women whenever they want with no commitment. This knowledge opens up a world of possibilities to them and a monogamous relationship is often not high on the agenda here.

Menopausal men often try and re-establish their attractiveness by having a silly affair – seduction courses and training validates this in their eyes (sometimes they buy a sports car too :-) If they’re visiting blogs like The Seduction Bible you might have something to worry about.

Your man’s view might be: “Hey if this skinny bald guy can do it I sure can!”

  1. Advertisers have been using the “Sex sells” mantra for decades. So it is no surprise to see that “a monogamous relationship is not high on the agenda” in today’s society.

    But “he who laughs last, laughs best” truly applies here. Surveys on true happiness rankings and health show that committed monogamous relationships bring the most rewards.

  2. Do these one liners really work? Which women would fall for these. Then again………….

  3. hi i enjoyed the read

  4. It’s amazing what married men will say on a dating site and think that it would work. What available woman would rush to, “my wife doesn’t like sex any more, can you service me twice a week?” If they considered women as real people they’d get more dates. :)

  5. It seems like more and more, our culture is obsessed with sex as a means of distraction and entertainment. Real relationships are being traded for something that ultimately won’t be satisfying.
    We seem to be trading off substance in exchange for image.


  6. The easiest way to pick up a girl is to not be interested in her (or at least pretend to). Make minimal initial contact and then leave the immediate area. Don’t stare too long you freaking psycho you.

  7. I like to be seduced in a classic style. None of this wham bam let’s hop in bed junk. Take your time to please a woman.
