Today, I went out to a club, hoping to score. I'd read about a trick pickup artists use called "negging" and decided to try it out. As I finished complimenting a girl for being brave enough to have not made much of an effort with her makeup, she slammed her knee between my legs. FML

Same thing different taste


You should leave that stuff to the professionals.

or someone who knows the difference between a compliment and an insult.

Isn't negging where you compliment them then immediately shut them down?

Tell me- do your obviously huge balls hide your dick? You're brave to assume you'd score with such an asshole of a personality.

I read "hoping to score" and just automatically thought ydi.

Totally deserved it. You obviously did not learn what negging is and probably will not ever get it. You never put a woman down or be negative to her like that. You do not make her feel "less than". You want her to feel like you are " more than". But without ruining her self esteem. You have to figure out the light jovial things and "lightly" make fun of her but something she can laugh at too. Not tell her that she obviously didn't put much effort in and looks like shit. Eeesh.

Dude, read the book to conclusion. Then read it again. You are the kind I'd have to tell everything to twice. There is a neg for you.

OP, you deserved it as soon as you started trying to use PUA moves. It's a trap, bro! PUA tricks are designed to warn all the quality women that the guy hitting on them is an idiot who thinks being a douchebag will help them score. Golden rule, ppl.

I agree 1 and love the profile pic! RvB FTW!!!!! :)

A guy tried this with me, as he does with every other girl he meets (he is notorious for it).... and he doesn't understand why he doesn't get any girls

Ahhh...people on FML are such judgmental assholes

128- I share your pain. Some guys have actually told me I'm not going to get much better than them so I should just settle and be happy. Waita make a gal feel special...

Not sure what's dumber: dudes dumb enough to try this or girls dumb enough to occasionally fall for it. Tools & *****, like milk and Oreos.

(Edit): Never mind, found the answer in another comment.

213- simple. Be honest, be polite, and flatter us :p

That seems like a difficult thing to put into a complement.

You're a total ****, OP. Edit: not sure how my comment turned into a reply. :/

While your glasses sure do complement your face, I would not take that as a compliment.

The only way I could possibly feel bad for op is in understanding that women do make it very difficult to approach them sometimes and how they expect a guy to catch their attention, but the way op worded this fml makes it pretty clear what he was after so he deserved what came to him.

29- I see what you're saying, but sometimes girls make it difficult to approach and talk to them because they're trying to filter out the aholes. op is only making that entire scenario worse.

28 - Well done! Not many people know the difference between compliment and complement.

Or maybe they just don't want to be approached at all. They might be out to have fun with their friends, or just to have a few drinks, or dance. Just because a woman walks out her front door doesn't mean she wants to be approached by strangers.

160- that's the stupidest thing I've ever read. When I go out, I go out to have fun. You're a moron.

Airman1988 9

154 how would you suggest guys meet girls if they don't approach them at all in public? how are they supposed to know if she wants approached or not

Yeah, girls tend to do that if you use cheesy pick-up lines or stupid "techniques".

Or when they're flat out insulted. I know that wasn't was OP was going for, but he bombed it.

CaptainDoorknob 7

Pick-up lines are a thing of the past. Now it's all about money, status, tattoos etc. If you don't have one of the three, you need to have some serious game.

There's a button for that you know.

Yes, I'm aware, there's such a thing as emphasis :)

Sounds like he's down for the count tonight. BOOM, crotch shot!

^Looks like most of the comments thread are going to get thumbed down....

Nymphetamatrix 19

What's that one word people use for guys like you? Oh yeah; Asshole.

cradle6 13

I'm not condoning what OP did, it was stupid. But using physical violence because some random guy at a club insulted you? Thats really screwed up. Imagine the outrage on this site if it were reversed, and some guy slammed his knee into a girl for insulting him. OP tried some lame technique to pick up girls because he obviously is still learning. He doesn't deserve to be assaulted because of it.

I remember getting constantly hit in the balls in high school because girls thought it was funny when they caused guys testicular pain. I also remember wondering why the teachers never punished them but threatened to expel me when I said, 'Next girl that hits me gets ****-punted.'

146- except when you look at all the harms due to low self-esteem like eating disorders, unhealthy relationships, and suicide, I would argue that OP needs to learn quickly how to not be a dick. If he thinks that a system that's made to make someone feel obliged to **** you because they feel so horrible about themselves is a good idea, it doesn't matter if he's learning, he's a total douche. I agree there's a double standard but if there was a comment about a woman trying to do the same thing to a man who got hit I would click YDI no slower than I did here. I wouldn't personally hit anyone but I also would argue that if there was ever the time to make a nut shot, this is it.

Yeah, next time tell us that we fell from heaven or some stupid shit like that... Just kidding! Best way to pick up a girl, honestly, just chit chat with her, and then if you both it off really well, get straight to the point (not in an asshole type way, but softly, smoothly and not pushy). That way she can at least respect you being upfront and honest, if you get turned down. Instead you could be patient and get to know her first. Ie. grab her number or give her yours.

Biggest dilema a man ever faces... Does he ask for her number, or give her his?

I think that the person who wants to be approached, whether they're male or female, should be the one giving the number. That way, the other person feels like the ball is in his/her court. They know the other person is interested and can then respond according to their own feelings. I don't really like giving out my number, since that once resulted in receiving a drunken phone call at 4 a.m. If I do give my number, then I really am interested in getting to know the person better, and if they call, I know they want to get to know me better, and that way, the whole potential "stalker-stalkee" dynamic is avoided.

Yeah, you're a real prize, aren't you?
