Grim has posted a very insightful comment about peacocking:
I find it funny the biggest complaint with Mystery is his clothing. Any woman who would judge solely on your clothes despite an amazing personality, charisma, and humor is not a woman worth dating. I say to hell with those types of women. Secondly, you have to know that Mystery goes for the more liberal type of women… What many people don’t know is that he prefers the stereotypical “club” type of girl. If you’re looking to pick up conservative women, then peacocking is probably not a good idea.
This is spot on. When pickup artists peacock, you should be doing it with congruency. That means, if you want to pickup a club, party, or “freaky” girl you should be peacocking appropriately for those venues. I would say typically look at what the “alpha” guys are doing in those scenes. We’ve all seen them, the guys in the corner that women seem to flock towards, or the guys that are constantly approached by these types of women. Take note and duplicate with your personality added.
For those guys looking for more conservative women, those women whom are working professionals, career women, students, and social circle friends, opt for a more conservative approach that will feel more calibrated for that woman’s personality.
You’ve only got one first impression, so don’t let your peacocking ruin it. Let it exponentially increase your successes!
