The Ultimate Pickup Technique: Social Proof

Getting social proof is a great pickup technique. Remember, your social value will rise to match the social value of the girls you’re with. So you want beautiful women to see you with other women.

For most guys, meeting girls at clubs is difficult for them. So they prefer to meet girls at bookstores, malls, coffee shops, and other daytime “low pressure” places.

But meeting girls at clubs can actually be far EASIER than at daytime places because of the pickup technique of social proof increasing social value.

I know that can sound counterintuitive. After all, at a club you have to deal with loud music that can be difficult to talk over, distracting lights, competition from other guys, and girls with their “shields” up. Worse still, if you go alone you don’t know anyone else while it can look like everyone else is having fun.

Even if you go with your friends they’re typically no help either because all they do is stand immobilized by hesitation with a beer at their chest – and know next to nothing about pickup techniques.

Has the following ever happened to you?

You walk into the club, checking out how “good” it is. You walk around the entire club to check it out. You don’t know anyone, and you don’t have anything to do, so you walk around again checking out all the girls.

You get bored. Perhaps you get a drink. You walk over to the dance floor and stare at it. Of course, fifty other guys are also staring at the dance floor. Like a master bed in the center of a master bedroom, the dance floor hypnotically commands attention.

You nurse your beer and eventually decide to walk around the club again. Nothing happens so you decide that the club “sucks” and then you eventually leave for another better place.

Of course, you do the very same thing at the very next place you visit.

I used to do this ALL the time. It sucked because it never got me anywhere.

The problem is, this kind of behavior is the exact OPPOSITE of what you want to do, because by wandering around you convey certain negative information to girls that shoots down your chances before you even make an approach.

When you circle around a club, women NOTICE that you’re alone. They make a mental note that you’re alone – and therefore lack any social value. Women give you social value by how hot the women and men you’re with are. But most guys walk around the entire club multiple times alone, collecting NEGATIVE social value the entire time – an “anti” pickup technique.

Think about it. When you FIRST walk into the club, the girls know NOTHING about you.

This is your chance to shape their blank impression of you. But what do most guys do?

They instantly go about setting a NEGATIVE impression of themselves – by walking around the room and staring at the dance floor. This is what ALL the guys who have no social value do. So then, if and when you do approach a hot girl, she lacks interest in you because she’s already categorized you – thanks to YOUR actions.

Thus, most guys give up on clubs because they’re “too hard”. But it’s not that clubs are “too hard”. It’s that you’re doing them all wrong.

Making clubs work for you is easy with the right pickup technique. In fact, meeting hot girls at clubs is EASIER than at other places. And you can make them work just as well as if you go with friends or if you go alone. You just have to know what to do. Here are some pickup techniques I use with great success.

When you first walk into the club, SMILE. A lot of women watch the door to size up the guys coming in. Remember, as you walk in your social status is a BLANK SLATE and you want to be immediately shaping a good first impression.

As soon as you’re in, OPEN the first available set of girls or set of girls and guys for social proof. Don’t look for a lone girl, you won’t find her. You’ll want to open a set of two of girls or a guy and a girl which are much easier to find.

There. It immediately looks like you have friends. It doesn’t matter if the set goes particularly well – other women will notice that you’re with other girls. Other girls will immediately peg you with social value – because they have no idea that you’ve only just met these girls.


So as long as they see you talking with other girls, they will mentally note this and be more open to talking with you themselves. This is not a conscious process, just something that girls do automatically without thinking about it.

So you open your first group of girls RIGHT AWAY. The conversation doesn’t have to go well, all you’re doing is collecting social proof. If the first group begins to stall, just turn to the set of girls next to you and open them. They’ll be much more likely to talk with you because they’ve already seen you talking to other girls. You can even join the groups together by saying, “Hey ladies, my friends here were just talking about such-and-such… what’s your opinion on that?”

That’s the pickup techniques, to ALWAYS be talking to a group of girls. Jump from group to group. By the time you’ve worked yourself through 45 minutes of talking to girls, ALL the girls in the immediate vicinity will know that you have social value. If you build up enough social value this way, you can just walk up to the hottest girl in the club and say, “Give me your number,” and she will give it to you.

  1. Do you substitute a computer for a weakness in live, in-person social skills? Online is only ONE way..not the ONLY way. This is both mine and about most of the whole world’s opinion on this..just look it up, lol

  2. It’s all mind games and bullshit these days. You’re best bet is to break the ice with girls by meeting them online which is a non-socially awkward, non-threatening environment. This works because everyone is on any given social/dating website for the same reason you are, to meet attractive, fun people. If you can hold a decent conversation online and you feel comfortable with each other you can then meet up in person and take things from there. Very simple, no mystery. Online socializing is a great way to break the ice beforehand and bypass all the awkward mind games and bullshit that people seem to play a lot of these days in nightclubs etc…..And yes, this has worked for me.

  3. This is BS, that is propagated by Pick up. No one is watching what you are doing when you enter a club. No ONE cares who you came with, nor will you have any social value if you are not remotely adding value such as being the really funny guy in the room. That is basic common sense.

  4. Great advice. You learn something everyday. It inspired me. Now I am getting laid more! Too bad for these other suckers. lol
