On 01/09/21, I ventured off to Chicago to game with part2pete, and initially was performing poorly during the first half of the day. I was dehydrated, dealing with ‘Adderall hangover’ after working on a big project yesterday, and barely ate anything within 24 hours.
Due to 6 1/2 months of extremely consistent practice, my game wasn’t bad, per se, but it could have been better.
Overall, I did a dozen or so approaches, but only one is worth writing about.
Approach #1 – The Colombian Expat
Synopsis: Toward the middle-end of our game session, I ran into this Colombian expat from Bogota. She’s been in Chicago for two months, but lived in the States multiple times in her life. Overall, I’d say she was receptive, but like JP said in our last call, (native) Colombian girls take 5-6 hours to lay – but they’re incredibly easy to get along with.
I’m not sure if it applied to Catalina, but I’m going to show JP the recording this Friday to hear his thoughts.
At the end, I went on an Instadate with Catalina, and clumsily tried closing to her hotel.
What I Did Right:
– Tried Hotel Closing After Instadate: I knew I had to push myself so I tried finding out Catalina’s logistics before trying to hotel close. I admit, it stumbled around alot, as if I didn’t know what to say; I was nervous, but I still pulled through.
– Kept It Flirty, Yet Balanced With Comfort: I felt my entire interaction was relatively solid. I was flirty, yet I balanced it with normal conversation. I did a pretty good job establishing comfort by asking interview style (or personal) questions + flirty/witty banter after her response.
– Not Confident On Hotel Closing: Since I hadn’t tried pulling after an instadate, I came off pretty fucking nervous. I imagine, over time, this will get far easier, but I distinctly recall fumbling over myself – hesitating – to hotel close Catalina.
Comments: Work on a smooth, casual transition for closing (ie. for instadates, going to her/my place and number)
