Yesterday a poster came across my tumblr dashboard from @PUAtxt, one of my favourite tumblr/twitter accounts. I decided to capture some of the gross language and reblog, especially for my Toronto followers to see. At the time Dimitri the Lover (aka James Nicholas Sears) and Toronto Real Men sounded vaguely familiar but I did not know/remember his whole story.
And with all the people I know in Toronto I should have known someone would have encountered this creep and his brand of “seduction” live & in person. What an unfortunate experience (and what an impression to leave!):
Part of the conversation this excerpt is from includes a private account but Zuzu’s account of meeting Sears and the link I posted to Jolenn Parton’s encounter with a San Fransisco pink up artist is relevant:
I can’t confirm this but a visit to the Real Men Toronto website suggests the meetings were put on hold in 2010 when a documentary was being produced about “The Prophet” (something Sears actually calls himself on purpose). The trail for this documentary can be seen here.
Apparently Rancho Relaxo aren’t the only place that didn’t want Toronto Real Men sullying their establishment:
UPDATE. Before I finished posting this I contacted PUS.txt and they made this public post (you will need to click through to read but they say the picture of the poster came from Encyclopedia Dramatica.)
