In the pick-up artist community, there is much advertising and hype around "game" systems. These are systems which, as far as I understand, consist of sets of guidelines, advice, strategies, behaviours and exercises aimed at helping men become more successful in their attempts to seduce women.
Many of the advertisers for "game" systems claim that their system has been tested "in the field", that they bring subjective benefits to the practitioners, and that it is scientific fact that the systems work - that the men who learn about them become more successful at seducing women. In this context, I'm wondering:
Is there any evidence that "game" systems advertised and promoted by pickup artists are at all effective?
I'm specifically looking for proof that any one single system (or, failing that, subset of a system) proves subjectively beneficial to its practitioners, or, alternatively, that, in general, such systems are not likely to provide any benefit
For further reference:
"Game" is a specific term, the book The Game seems to be the first public use it, though I assume it's been around for a while longer.
There are thousands of online resources for pick-up artists, the top google search result seems a good place to start to learn about the topic.
