To be a Pick Up Artist is more than just having an interest in women. It's living the lifestyle of a PUA congruently and at all times. Below is a list of men who not only pick up women as a hobby, but have made their livings off of it.
When you sleep, eat, and breathe something 24/7, you're going to be good at it. And these guys are good. Click on the link or the picture below to open up the full profile of each Pick Up Artist.
Nick Savoy : Nick Savoy may not be as famous as other Pick Up Artists, but no one teaches pick up better than Nick Savoy. He's the perfect blend of PUA and teacher, and has released a number of incredible products that are almost guaranteed to sky rocket a man's success with women (whatever that success may be to him).
Mystery : Mystery is probably the most recognizable PUA in the game, and for good reason. He's the most influential PUA of all time (my very objective opinion) and is also one of the most interesting men on the face of the planet.
David DeAngelo : David DeAngelo is a master teacher who teaches men how to have the sort of attitude and personality that is attractive to women. If you find yourself unable to get out of the "lets just be friends" zone or you don't know what sort of things to say to a woman, then you really need to check out his full profile.
Joseph Matthews : Joseph Matthews is a very interesting character who has worked closely with some of the top PUAs in the game. He focuses on teaching men that their looks really don't matter, as how they carry themselves is much more important.
David Shade : David Shade is not exactly a Pick Up Artist, but he is clearly skilled with women. Instead, he focuses on teaching men how to give women incredible pleasure in the bedroom. But you know what? When you KNOW that you're great in bed, it tends to do good things for your pick up game.
