In the beginning, there was Dear Abby — an American institution since the s. Write in, and get nice, sensible advice on your dating dilemma. But the catch was that it was PG-rated, written by a woman and generally for them. Young men continued to get a lot of their dating advice from their peers in the locker room, and if they were lucky, an older male mentor who knew the ropes.
Away from the safe, clean-cut mainstream arena, there were always the racy magazines like Playboy which gave a totally different view. This classic by Eric Weber appeared inand included advice such as wearing bell-bottoms and marching in peace marches to pick up the hot hippies. This was red-blooded and unashamed pick-up artistry! The term itself became part of the language, and the s was a time when pick-up artistry flourished, albeit still underground. Things changed as the s brought in a different atmosphere.
Reagan was in the White House, concerned parents were clamping down on rock and roll lyrics, and most importantly the specter of AIDS changed the whole dating landscape. The free-wheeling s over, in dating advice magazines and on TV, there was understandably a focus on staying safe. And the latter defined the s dating scene with what was effectively game for women. It was the decade of women making the rules.
It was a tough and confusing time to be a man in the s, as men no longer knew whether to be a traditional macho male, or a Sensitive New Age Guy. Towards the end of the decade, new things started to stir. Most importantly, the Web was starting to provide a new platform for men to give advice on the dating arena.
The internet would well and truly shake things up. One of the first gurus of the new era was Ross Jeffries. Selling books and CDs from his website, he told the would-be Casanova that no matter how nebbish you might be, you could learn to charm any woman into bed. Jeffries was big on NLP, effectively a rebranded form of hypnosis. In many ways, he was like a holdover from the s with his unrepentant focus on getting women into bed.
Love him or hate him, he showed that there was a huge market on the internet for male-focused dating tips. Next on the scene was David De Angelo. De Angelo offered some key concepts which at the time were breakthroughs to many young men. Deed to get the attention of sought-after women used to getting fawning compliments, it was easily abused by novices, who would make these kind of remarks to less attractive and more insecure women, or turn them into outright insults.
This was the kind of dating advice that had its place, but could easily go wrong, and tended to get bad press.
De Angelo was everywhere on the internet in the first few years of the s, as he was essentially a marketer and businessman using the dating advice for men arena as his stepping stone to bigger things. Now under his real name, he has gone on to become a hugely successful and wealthy entrepreneur.
But even more important than De Angelo and the marketers was the ragtag group of men who started to congregate on various internet message boards in the late s and early s. This was something new — men learning and sharing their dating experiences pseudonymously in real time. This new era of sharing allowed them to develop complex theories on everything from how to approach women to how to successful first dates to even, what women want in bed. One of the more famous of these men was a young Canadian by the name of Eric von Markovic, better known as Mystery.
While perhaps not the greatest or most original of PUAs, he now had an online audience of eager acolytes who took his approach and went out on the streets to try to replicate it. A movement was forming, and online forum posts were studded with enough jargon and acronyms to require a glossary. Some people laughed it off, others drew out what they saw as valuable lessons. Many major cities have become accustomed to these groups of young men going out and practicing their techniques, with lesser or greater effectiveness. To combat the rise of the fake guru who was just looking to make a quick dollar, PUA ability groups started appears.
PUAWatchDog started analysing the claims of different Gurus to test their validity and dating product review sites such as Seduction Reviewstarted giving customers a voice to share their opinions and experiences with other potential customers. Companies such as Authentic Man Program and The Attraction Institute developed structures and tactics for eliminating ones inner-roadblocks that were getting in the way of a successful seduction. This definitely seems to be a more balanced approach than going out to hit on dozens of women every night. There are other trends for men seeking to improve their dating success, such as an increased realization that American and Western women in general are not the only women in the world, and many men are reporting having better love lives from branching out to foreign countries.
Whole online communities are devoted to the life of the budding international playboy, who enjoys not only the sights and food of other countries but also reports back on their success with the local women. Meanwhile, there are totally different online communities, such as popular dating advice sub—Reddits, where a group of peers give advice either to the opposite Beautiful mature seeking seduction Wheeling or to their own gender.
