It’s hard to rate different PUAs when there are so many subjective variables. What is the quality of girls they get? How many girls do they have sex with for every 100 approaches they make? How much money do they spend on dates? And so on. It’s impossible to independently rate all these variables (especially when you’re not constantly tracking them with a hidden camera), but I think we can get a good idea based on what we already know about these men.
David Deangelo is the pioneer of “cocky and funny,” a flirting technique that builds attraction. While being cocky alone or funny alone won’t necessarily build attraction, the combination offers a powerful way to get into a girls pants. It’s the modern way to tease.
Before David D became a superstar with his Double Your Dating line of books and DVDs, his main style was hitting up the internet, where he could talk and deliver his cocky and funny lines. Not many people besides those close to his inner circle have seen him in action but he does always have a hot woman on his arm when showing up in his seminars. Who knows if they are paid or not.
Mystery is the father of group approaches. All the desirable women he wanted were in groups so he figured out the best way to approach these groups, disarm the cockblockers, and then get the girl he wanted. His style is more entertainer because he has to hold the attention of several people at once. You can tell by his “peacocked” outfits and crazy hats.
Many people argue that Mystery gets girls not just because of his game but because of the rock star vibe he puts out. It’s arguable but no other PUA has documented his hooks up to the extend that Mystery has. Both pictures and videos of him kissing beautiful women are all over the internet.
Finally there is Style, who was instructed by Mystery over a years long friendship that resulted in Style (also known as Neil Strauss) writing a book called The Game. Style was instructed by the best in the world not only for his journey to becoming the best, but for research to his book as well. Some say researching the book was just a way for him to learn how to game girls. Either way his skill cannot be denied, though one wonders how far he would have gotten without Mystery.
If I had to guess who had the most natural ability, it would be Mystery. I think it’s going to be some time before we come across another man who has broken down the game so efficiently. But if we were to judge a player on the effect he’s had on thousands of other men, then Style would win. Due to better organization and marketing, his teachings have reached far and wide, and have done more to help the normal man.
