My take on the Pickup Artist community – Treating a lady right

treating a lady rightIf you are not familiar with the pickup artists community or the PUA in short then let me clue you in.

The PUA community’s sole focus is to teach men how to learn the game so they can charm women into their bedroom or land a girlfriend.

They have so many techniques ranging from cheesy pickup lines to negging, keeping frame, treating a woman badly to destroy her ego, and what not.

To write a negative review about a business or not to, that is the question!

This is a subject I have long wanted to write about but I had no solid opinion up until now.

With the popularity of online review websites such as Yelp.com, I usually read the reviews before going to a business. Often times I read and look for the negative reviews and that fills my head with negative preconception about the business. The preconception is the problem by itself and not the business, at least not yet because it is not your own experience.

Good thing that I still give the businesses a try and often time my experience turns out to be more positive than the negative review that I just read.

For instance, I wanted to rent an apartment at of one the Avalon apartment communities but some negative reviews scared me a bit. I rented anyway and my experience was positive! Continue reading
