"Picking up women is a silly game with serious rules" - RSD Tyler
Don't think of game as either a hobby or a job, each approach is ultimately flawed. Don't treat it like a job because your aim should ultimately be to have fun. Even if you get success, "the journey is the destination" and if you didn't have fun getting there, then ultimately what have you achieved? Penis in warm hole.
On the other approach, you can easily have fun and get no success. If your only aim was to have fun, you could just hang out at your friend's house, getting drunk and making stupid jokes and playing videogames all evening. There are specific steps that you have to take when meeting girls, however, if you are not enjoying those steps, it will come out in your subcommunications and you won't get success anyway.
