For the first time on this site (and yes, this includes my first discovery of many 20+ page threads), I do not have the time to read this thread in
its entirety and then post a response. I read the initial few posts, but it's late at night and I do not have the energy to go through seven
So I am just going to jump to giving you all my input, whether it was previously discussed in this thread or not...
I have a feeling you have just found the subculture of Speed Seduction. I used to be heavily into it, roughly ten years ago, and yes it is its own
culture, has its own vocabulary, etc etc etc. The unofficial "HQ" of the entire movement was/is on Usenet, at alt.seduction.fast, or just ASF if you
are into the lingo. Speed Seduction is referred to as just plain SS to those in the know as well.
There are many seemingly-reputable "pickup artist" type publications, even seminars...to learn what goes on, either spend hours reading that
newsgroup to weed out facts, or find someone who is in that little world who can introduce you.
But I warn those who are interested...it's like an organized crime family in a way...you can't just walk in as a newbie, and once in, it is very
tough to get out...I know because I've been there.
Let me also caution you, that I regret ever getting involved, and my past in the SS underworld is full of events that could come back to bite me in
the buttocks, lots of things I regret. Be careful, it's like getting heavy into organized crime, all kinds of evil people are out there among some
good, you just have to learn who is who. I strongly recommend never to meet the hardcore SS in-crowd face to face, as it is very diffucult to
dissociate with them once you know them. At least in this area, where most practitioners are college-aged and most mentors are older, it is hard to
disappear. I would liked it to a cult, in fact I can not think of a better word to describe it.
