Some high status women can see right past PUA, know exactly what they are looking for and unless you are equally high status or have many years in the pickup game, you aren't going anywhere.
This says more about the PUA than the woman. When a woman can see right past a man, it's because he isn't being honest, acting in an unrealistic way, trying hard to not be rejected rather than seducing, etc. This is why so many of us are trying to tell you guys to be normal and express intent.
The date I had last night was just like this. Shes been single for many years, lots of dates and 90% of those that she had were blown out, and no I didn't ask that question, she told me. Sense of humour we had over text was not registering on the date, no IOIs, I had no chance and so I am added to the 90%. No shame though, I have other more interesting options.
This says more about her than it does her status. It is more likely that this woman can't keep men because the men that she logically wants have too many options and have no need to settle down with just her. Since you are believing her and her explanation on why she's single, you're falling into her reality and become one of the 90%. It also sounds like this is someone you've met online, right? Women don't normally qualify you like this on a first date unless you've met her online.
That's true and it's why I don't like online dating too much.
I aimed too high too soon. Need to aim a bit lower but I am talking to someone who is on the same wavelength as me, but it's just a normal convo, I am not fussed either way with that one, but seems cool to meet up with and something interesting with, rather than just go for a drink.
My main goal at the moment is building up a new social circle since a lot of my old social circle have all hit hitched and had kids. I'm doing ok on that side of things, slowly but surely. Approaching everyone in the bars, and it's going to take time to build a foundation.
Thanks for the feedback
