Area51Lifestyle and Mike Long decided to investigate the Mystery Method years ago and have been publishing our findings on www.theMysteryMethod.net, I first met Erik Von Markovic aka Mystery, inventor of the Mystery Method, in Los Angeles in the summer of 2004, but we were re-introduced by Neil Strauss, author of the New York Times best seller “the Game.”
(To get a free 34-page video book by Mystery and me, Mike Long click here.)
Here’s the scoop:
Neil Strauss was actually a student of the Mystery Method and I had become friends when I advised him and his business partners during their “Annihilation Method” launch (The name Annihilation Method is actually pulled from “Annihilation Engine” the name of my still upcoming book.)
Frank Kern suggested that we get together with Mystery to see if we could put together a special project. I agreed and though Kern later backed out, Mystery and I ended up proceeding. Since that time Area51Lifestyle has helped thousands of students succeed.
At the time there was very little when it came to Mystery Method Youtube, or really any videos. We began filming in earnest.
Here’s a video that Mystery and me put together with another of his students, Matador:
This video is part 1 of a 2-part series on something that Mystery likes to call “debriefing” where he goes into a sort of analytical mode looking at everything in a “meeting girls” situation from what kind of Mystery Method openers he might have used, or other types of openers, all the way to whether he crashed and burned and why to whether and why he succeeded that night.
Around that time I got the opportunity to go out with Mystery and Neil quite a number of times and I noticed a lot of differences when it came to their “game” but also a lot of similarities.
Neil turned out to be often much more focused than Mystery, though Mystery obviously garnered more attention.
We met up at the Roosevelt hotel one night and hung out poolside. Neil kept constant focus on the girls we met and situations that were popping up.
Mystery sort of zoned out for much of the evening but then still came back into sharp focus when a couple of French girls ended up following us over to the Roosevelt’s diner.
I’ll get to more of the details of this story as well as part 2 of the video above in my next post – including why Neil told me to “go find Jdog”.
It’s all happening,
