The pickup artist (PUA) lives to “sarge.” In PUA parlance, that means he lives to stroll up to a woman he doesn’t know and initiate a successful conversation.But in the realm of pickup artistry, making small talk with an attractive gal is far more complicated than merely saying “hello.” There’s a specific order of events that must occur in order to maximize the chances of success. And what constitutes a successful sarge? That depends on the PUA’s intentions, but generally, it involves a telephone number, a kiss or a one-night stand. If the sexual target — aka the woman — is “lucky,” the suave guy just might contact her again.
