One of Mystery's star pupils was a journalist who went by the moniker "Style", and Style eventually went on to become one of the most successful pickup artists and eventually founded his own pickup company Manifest Your Ex Back called the Stylelife Academy. He also published a New York Times bestselling novel based on his experiences, called "The Game", which helped to put the pickup community out into the mainstream.
Today, the pick up artist community is exploding, with hundreds of thousands of men all over the world studying the techniques and mindsets of seduction, in order to improve their success with women. Much of the seduction community gathers online on pickup forums, much like the original alt.seduction.fast, where they post their questions and advice. There are also groups called "pickup lairs", basically groups of guys who get together in the real world to help each other out in developing their skills are pick up artists.
The seduction community has also become a lot more commercialized over the past few years, with dozens of pickup companies springing up around the world, looking to make some money from desperate guys trying to get better with women. There are now hundreds of ebooks, audiobooks, and DVDs that men can purchase, that teach guys how to become better with women, and there are also many companies that offer live programs for improving your game.
So the once underground seduction community has become a lot more open in the past few years and many men have become a part of it. There are many factions and methods within the pickup community, but if you dedicate yourself and practice, you too can become a pick up artist and improve your results with women
