Nerdy Pick-Up Artist Makes $16,000 Grand On Kickstarter For Dating Book

People will fund anything on Kickstarter, even a documentary about a war on a human leg in a smoker. Don’t think you have what it takes to be a playboy? Well, if Ken Hoinsky can do it (and subsequently rake in over $16,000 after only asking for $2,000 to fund a book project based on his discoveries), so can you.

But please don’t.

After he moved to a new town, Hoinsky did tons of research via the internet and self-help books on how to “get dates” and “make friends.” He chanced upon a Reddit feed (because we all know that Reddit is a bastion for good advice) and then became the sort of pickup artist that thinks its a good idea to actually physically pick up a woman that you are going for and put her on your lap like a little passive ragdoll.

“Don’t ask for permission,” advises Hoinksy in his Kickstarter video. “Be dominant.”

He calls some of his uber-aggresive tactics “caveman-ing.” He documents his misogynist misadventures into dating with a book he has entitled Above The Game: A Guide to Getting Awesome with Women.

More like getting aggressive and awkward with women.
