Mehow has single handedly revolutionized the pick-up scene with his establishment of Mehow Inc. to teach the world the art of the pick-up. The author of three best-selling dating books is working on a new release and is developing a TV show that is expected to air in 2009. Mehow shares some wisdom, as well as his favorite aspects of Los Angeles, with Campus Circle.

Club or bar: The Standard Downtown [555 S. Flower St.]. Open air venues rock because you can talk. I don’t go out to dance. I go out to … well, you know.

Place to shop: Melrose Avenue.

Restaurant: Mel’s [8585 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood]. I’m there at the end of every night. So are half the other PUAs in the city, so I always have friends there.

Movie theater: AppleTV and my moving, vibrating Tempur-Pedic bed.

Where do you work out? I have an elliptical in my living room and an assistant who makes me get on it.

What pick up line never works? Just about anything.

What’s the best reaction you’ve ever gotten to a pick-up line? Me: “Hey.” Her: “Fuck off …” I love it when I’m starting off in damage control. Some of my best relationships have started that way.

What is the most important thing you want readers to take away from your books? Marriage.
