Hey I just put the Acronyms in here, got it from Cliffs List, I think its a pretty complete list of all the acronyms
#close = the number close. Get the girl's number. Give your's if she only agrees to an exchange.
*close = Kiss close or fuck close... depends on the context of what the person us talking about. Usually means kiss close. (also see: close, @close, # close)
@close = e-mail close
3s rule = the three seconds rule. There may be a maximum of only three seconds between you seeing a girl and acting upon it. The rule that you should immediately try to meet a women within 3 seconds of seeing her (or her seeing you). 3 seconds isn't exactly literal, but the translation is "DO NOT HESITATE". Any hesitation will give you more time to falter and come up with fear-based excuses in your mind. It also give your target time to think negatively about you.
AFC = "Another Frustrated Chump" (ie. a guy who is not a pickup artist, doesn't understand how women really work, or how to handle them, so as a result, doesn't get laid very often). Often called a "nice guy" which is really the same as an AFC. AFC also means Average Frustrated Chump. A phrase coined by Ross Jeffries to describe a healthy (read: horny) male not (yet educated in the art of seduction (which in Ross Jeffries' terms would be Speed Seduction, but that is much too limiting). A few typical traits of an AFC - hanging on to just one certain girl, supplicating, swallowing whatever crap treatment a woman gives him, being afraid to make a move, thinking in terms of "dates", eiter for lack of courage and/or knowledge being unable to do a pick-up or a close. Also a guy who tends to supplicate in his behavior to HBs. Meaning, buying flowers for a chick when going out for coffee, putting her on a pedestal, and generally letting women walk all over him in the vein hope of somehow being seen as attractive in their eyes. A common term used for AFCs that have seen the error of their ways but not yet gained PUA skills is RACF (Recovering AFC).
AI = Approach Invitation. Unconscious actions by an HB to get your specific attention (rather than peacocking to get ALL men's attention) in order for you to have an opening opportunity with her. EC, hanging around you for an extended time for no reason, dropping something in front of you, asking you a question, fumbling with something in front of you, making nervous gestures, etc. By looking for AIs rather than wasting time on cold approaches, your PU game will become 3x more efficient while minimizing C&B results. If made use of in target-rich environments, quality approach oppportunities can increase 10x. Observation of AIs is best done after warm-up (a few throwaway approaches).
Ambiguity = The use of phrases or words which sound alike but differ in meaning, such as blow and below.
AMOG = Alpha Male Other Guy - In reference to a situation where you are trying to close on a chick and there's direct (in-your-face) competition from another PUA. This is different than a cockblock because the normal disarming strategies don't work.
Anti-AI = Anti Approach Invitation. Unconscious actions by an HB to do everything to avoid your specific attention. Walking away from you, avoiding EC, creating a cockblock scenario, etc. Don't waste your time on chicks giving anti-AI to you unless you really like a challenge or spending all your time in TA mode.
ASD = Anti-Slut Defense. The chick logic a woman (especially younger ones) will go through to relieve the guilt having sex too quickly with a man, assuming she has enough time to "think" about the consequences - a reaction which causes them to come up with objections or reasons that they shouldn't fuck you in order to relieve their guilt of taking *responsibility* for doing something that society would often call "slutty". Post-sex ASD is usually boiled down to comments from her to her friends like "it just happened". It might be possible to consider waiting for a guy to make all the moves as an ASD. This forces HIM (in her mind) to take responsibility for the fact that she slept with you. "It just happened", "he wouldn't give up", etc. In reality, both people are responsible for their own actions.
ASF = a Usenet newsgroup created by Ross Jeffries for discussing Speed Seduction and its implementation, which has far outgrown its original agenda by becoming the world's premiere discussion board covering various seduction techniques. Everything in quotation marks starting with "ASF:" is material originally published on ASF.
B = Babe
BAFC = Below Average Frustrated Chump
BF = Boyfriend, often also (and not mistakenly read as Borefriend
Bitch Shield = Not a derogatory term - used to describe a behavior women use when attempting to fend off would-be suitors. Usually in use in clubs, bars, and other pick up places. Sometimes just referred to as a "shield".
BOOT CAMP = Dance clubs and crowded bars, "meat markets". The most likely places on the planet for AFCs to get rejected and, therefore, the best place for AFCs to build up a thick skin. THE best places to crash & burn.
chyck = chick. duh
close / # close = To complete a pick up by getting a girl to commit to a "date", giving you her phone number, or bedding her literally on the spot. Most PUAs like to differentiate between different kinds of closes (kiss close, number close, fuck close, etc.) Comes from sales terminology. i.e. "Close a deal". (also see: *close, @close)
cockblock / CB = When obstacles take your target away or get your target disinterested in you.
Crash & Burn / C&B = To attempt an approach/PU and fail miserably. A learning process. Warm-up. Don't confuse with "CB" which is short for cockblock.
DAFS = Do A Fucking Search. Kinda like RTFM (Read The Fucking Manual). Usually thrown at newbies who post about a vague memory of a past post without bothering to search for an archive of that post.
DAI = Dead Approach Invitation. Opening on an AI that turns sour and creates an Anti-AI response from the HB. Different than a crash & burn on a cold approach because it involves taking advantage of positive signals you detected from a chick. DAIs are rare if you know how to detect AIs properly.
DDB = "Doggy Dinner Bowl" [Look] - The look on a chick's face when she's tranced out or lapping up your words with a phased out look in their eyes. In that state, they are metaphorically ready to eat out of the palm of your hand.
E&E / EwE = Eject & Explain / Eject-with-Explanation. Ejecting from a situation with a chick without completely burning bridges but doing it in a way that allows her the opportunity to understand and "fix" the reason(s) that caused you to eject. You eject her from your sphere/ world, not the other way around.
EC = Eye Contact
EV = Elicit(ing) Values.
f close = Fuck close.
FB = Fuck Buddy.
FMAC = Find Meet Attract Close. The basis of Mystery's method (and pretty much all PU styles).
FNG = Fucking New Guy. A new guy to ASF, the misc sites, and the "right" way to do seduction (in contrast to the "wrong" way presented by a large number of femi**** resources which flood modern society).
FTOW = Find Ten Other Women
FUG = Fucking Ugly Girl. A REALLY ugly chick. On the 1-10 scale, a 0.
g close = Girl Close. A g close is what happens when you contact close (# or @ or both) a chick and it leads to a f close rather than a flake or LJBF. G closing also happens when you same-day f close a chick whether you got her contact info or not. If you get a chick's contact info in order to follow up later (no same-day f close) and can walk away with the full confidence that you WILL lay her soon, that's a g close. Anything else is mental masterbation and you will likely have a flake on your hands. G closing is always better than contact closing.
GF = Girlfriend
GM / GM Style = Grand Master. One of the prominent PUAs on ASF, Nathan, has a friend he calls "GM" who's primary pick up style is to be extremely sexual and blatant. Almost blunt. For example, making dick jokes. This approach only works if it's pulled off just right and you stay congruent with it.
