Courtship is a human action sequence as timeless as humans themselves. Flirtation is often posited as the catalyst for any courtship script and can be enacted in a myriad ways. Due to this large inventory, several popular press publications have been developed offering the ‘sure- fire’ way to seduce and flirt with any woman. The present study sought to investigate the effectiveness of one such popular press publication: The Mystery Method and compare its effectiveness with female sexual assertiveness, love style, and sociosexuality. A self-report survey was administered to 504 respondents at a large, public southwestern university. Results indicate that on paper, The Mystery Method and its prescriptions are not the preferred flirting techniques both for women and men. Sociosexuality and sexual assertiveness showed no correlation to The Mystery Method but intriguingly, the love style Pragma showed a strong correlation and was found to be predictive in levels of The Mystery Method attractiveness in women. Male ratings of the use of flirtations techniques proffered by The Mystery Method were also explored.
