Negging

Negging is a PUA technique whereby a person makes a deliberate backhanded compliment or outright insult to a woman to undermine her confidence and increase her need of the manipulator's approval.

Almost all teasing can be categorized as, 'negging', although 'negging' is often more intense than teasing. Negging has been popular before pick-up-artistry became popular, but the practice fits PUA philosophy to a tee.

Generally negging really only works if you already have a higher LMS than the girl, that's really it.

Some Examples of negging are:

  • "Nice nails, are they real?"
  • "You must be a law student/lawyer."
  • "I think I saw some girls with more ridiculous shoes here, but you’re definitely in the top 2/5/10/whatever number makes sense based on the size of the venue."
  • "I like your shoes, they look really comfortable."
  • "With that wit, it’s a good thing you’re pretty."
  • "You blink a lot."
  • "In one more drink I’ll be ready to hit on you."
