Ho boy, I’m not proud of writing this again, but two issues seem to plague me throughout my pickup journey. Namely, a.) Regressing back to a prior game level b.) A narcissistic, envious tendency due to another man’s success in pickup.
So, two weeks ago, I was learning pickup pretty well.
I was slowly inclining and improving my overall game (ie. I started reading a girl’s vibe correctly, knew how to hook sets, etc), before it went downhill. It’s strange – and logically, I can’t explain it – but for the last week and a half or so, I’m opening girls great, but my game itself is declining.
For example, if an interaction with a girl is going well, I’d eject out of set early since I’d blank or feel uninteresting. Failing to hook girls has started becoming an issue, too. It’s the weirdest, yet most frustrating thing in the world.
Not only that, but Chris who I’ve been day gaming with for two months has gotten three instadates and met this sweet, cute Ukrainian girl today who I didn’t approach (not due to AA) because she seemed more his type. Despite the fact I put in far more work than he does at approaching and he possesses pretty bad AA without me. I hate to sound like a bitch, but it isn’t fair. I write dozens of detailed reports, work my ass off approaching nearly twice the girls he does, and consult guys on numerous forums/Discord servers.
Today was pretty much the last straw.
There’s a reason why I gamed solo pre-lockdown. I’m incredibly competitive and despise rivalry.
