It’s a style made popular by well-known seducers from the mid-2000’s and probably works on occasion.
On the other end of the spectrum is the guy who knows about all of the popular strategies, ideas, and methods and uses them, but only as something in the background of his game.
There are the guys who plan everything out, have hundreds of lines, canned stories and step-by-step strategies memorized, and try to boil attraction down to a science.
They study things like evolutionary biology, social science and treat game in an extremely methodical way as if it’s just a real-life game of Call of Duty and they’re on a mission.
I don’t necessarily think that it was in Andy’s character.
For every rule, there is an exception, and is the case with my statement in the opening paragraph.

Hasn’t sure made a pretty good argument for it in “The One That Got Away.” Andy tried to set the rules, oblivious to the fact that she was trying to keep a secret that my dog could have figured out (He did, as a matter of fact, but then again, he’s in the Team Swarek camp too).
