Remember way back in the day when there was all that press about Neil Strauss's douchebook, The Game? If you're a lady, you probably remember because around that time some dude who had read one too many of the articles came up to you in a bar and tried to 'neg' you and you were just, like, "What the fuck are you talking about, asshole? Fuck off! Also, why are you wearing a shiny polyester suit?" Anyway, long story short, apparently none of that publicity made it to Staten Island, where today the S. I. Advance reports on what life is like for a P.U.A. (that's pick up artist, for the ten of you who remain blissfully ignorant to Strauss's douchey lexicon) named "Affection," without ever even mentioning the book. Sic sic sic, obvs:
"Affection," as he is known in his professional world, is a PUA, or "pick-up artist" — which should not be confused with the term PUG, or "pick-up guru." The latter coveted designation is reserved only for a select few master flirts who consistently seduces "tens," an actual rating given only to the most stunning of women hovering supermodel status.
