I recall hearing a story from Mystery about him and a group of his students. They walked into a restaurant and saw a famous rock star having lunch. Across the room was a woman with her boyfriend.
The boyfriend was sitting behind a curtain so that he could see his girlfriend, but he couldn’t see the rest of the venue (including where the rock star guy was). But she had a clear view of the celebrity. Mystery and his students were watching this whole thing play out.
The boyfriend got up to use the bathroom. Immediately the girl stands up and walks over to Mr. Rock star and introduces herself. She chats with him for a few minutes and gives him her card. She sits back down at the table before her boyfriend returns, none the wiser.
The best part of this story is the last part: one of Mystery’s students, having just seen what happened, said “It was so easy for him! We have to learn all these theories and routines to pickup girls, but he just walks in here and gets the women!” To which Mystery replied: “Yeah it was easy for the rock star… he just had to make a platinum record, that’s all.”
The point of the story is that it’s possible to have tons of options with women, but you’re going to have to work for it no matter what. You could become a famous musician, or a professional athlete, or a successful businessman. And the women would be available for you.
You wouldn’t have to “put in the work” of approaching and escalating on loads of women. But if you think a famous musician, actor or pro athlete doesn’t work hard to achieve his status, you’re either delusional or not paying attention.
These are highly competitive fields, even for the highly talented. And the market for music, movies and sports can be very fickle. One day you’re on top of the world, the next day you’re a nobody whose contract isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
But if you can make it big, the rewards to your sex life can be immense, at least for that brief window. See this story from a publicist who works with professional athletes:
No woman is off-limits for a sports figure. I once went to a billiards bar with another client, the NBA player. The place doubled as a night club, and because my guy had just won a title, heads turned the moment we walked in.
An attractive married woman—she had a huge rock on her finger—came over and started hitting on my client immediately and relentlessly. After a while, her husband came out from the dance club area, clearly upset. He never threatened anything physical. He barely even raised his voice. He just wanted to know what she was doing. His wife played dumb. So my client spoke up: “Your girl is trying to fuck me.”
The husband got into it a little with his wife. He wanted to leave. My client called over one of the bouncers and told him to get rid of the couple. The wife decided to stay. The husband got booted. He was irate. She didn’t care. Five minutes later, my client was having sex with her in the back office of the club.
I would disagree with the idea that “no woman is off-limits.” This guy is writing from his personal experience, which of course selects for those specific women. But nevertheless, the potential is there.
A no-name guy who wants to get lots of chicks or generate huge options for himself has to put in the work too. But instead of busting his ass in the gym for hours each day, winning a national sports championship, laboring for years to make a name for himself in the insanely competitive film industry, or working hard to get the right certification for a legal or financial career, the pickup artist instead puts in his work on the streets and bars.
The net result is the same for all these guys–lots of girls, lots of options for sex and relationships–but the paths to get there are different.
(The only exception is guys who are born into money and privilege, which is admittedly a very small percentage of all men. Yes, some people have an unfair advantage in life.)
Everybody has to work for it. It’s just a question of what your talents are, and what you choose to focus on. Whether it’s music, sports, corporate work, entrepreneurship, art, performance, meeting strangers, or countless other things, there is potential for you to excel in your own way and leverage it to benefit your dating life, and get choice with women.
But you have to take action and take initiative.
