New York City PUA Events for August 2009

In an effort to keep my readers and myself better informed on the different community events occurring in New York City each month I post a calendar at the beginning of each month listing all upcoming events I am aware of. New York City is a place that has several different community groups and there is no reason to learn pickup on your own if you do not want to. If I have a missed an event that you feel should be listed please do not hesitate to e-mail me.

Title: What Women Haven’t Told You: Female Perspectives on Pickup
Host: NYC Inside Out Social Dynamics Group
Location: CAP 21, 18 West 18th Street, New York, NY 10011, 6th Floor
Time: 7:30 pm
Cost: $10
Description: “Hey Gents, August 20, Thursday @ 7:30 pm - Picara, one of the few female dating coaches in NYC is coming to speak to our group - the topic, What Women Haven't Told You: Female Perspectives On Pickup. What Peter & Picara wrote up about the August 20 presentation: When we first started attending men's group meetings, and talking to guys in the "seduction community," we noticed something peculiar. A lot of the guys we met seemed to be spinning their wheels, wasting time on things that weren't improving their dating lives, that were even, dare we say it, handicapping them. We sensed a major problem, that no one talked about. And it all had to do with how guys in the community viewed women. I mean, haven't you ever wondered why guys in the community feel like they have to hide their intentions from women? Or why they need pseudonyms or fake screen names? I mean, is it even necessary? What if this stuff was actually holding you back? On Thursday, August 20th, we'll be answering these questions and more in a presentation that any lover (or soon-to-be lover) of women will want to attend. Among other things, you'll learn... * How women actually look at men (and at pick-up artists). * What women actually want, some of which is waaay different than what your favorite guru has told you. * How to become an excellent translator, and learn to speak womanese yourself. * A way to get female advice that'll skyrocket your game. Afterwords, we'll be having a round table discussion with a Q&A, so bring your questions. And, in case you're wondering who we are: Peter and Picara are Co-Founders of Charmistry ( We're dorks at heart who later found our inner Don Juan (and Dona Juana). Plus, we make a mean grilled cheese sandwitch. Picara doesn't think that's an appropriate bio but, wtf, I'll put it in anyway. Best, P. This should be interesting, fun, and have plenty of actionable tips that will help you all with your interactions and dates with women. Bring your questions - we will reserve ample time for Q & A at the end of the presentation. Cheers, Philip. p.s. - we will be going out after this presentation - so even if you cannot make this presentation swing by at 9:30 to meet your wingman.”
