07/17/21 – Accept Where You Are; Accept The Now

On Saturday, 07/17/21, I ventured off to Springfield, MO for a another typical day game session. As per usual, I felt like gaming in Missouri was a drag; but I didn’t want to lose my PUA skillset, so I persisted to prepare myself for Chicago.

While pulling up at a Ross store, I decided to pop on The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. As fate had it, my audible book started with Eckhart mentioning how most people live eternally under distress; living in hopes for a future that may never come, in an attempt to escape their present life circumstances.

IMPORTANT: The goal isn’t FOCUSING on your life circumstances (despite if it’s your fault or not), but to focus on your life. Your life now. In the present.

This hit me to the core. Yes, I was warming up to the idea of living in Missouri, but I truly hadn’t hit the point of true acceptance.

Once I did, I felt everything change. My focus I once possessed in Milwaukee/Chicago returned to me; I felt alive, ready to hit the ground running during my day game session; and best of all…

I met a Fuck Yes girl, as Mark Manson calls it, which this report will log. I admit, lots of mistakes I surpassed in Chicago returned, but I made strides in a few weak points as well.

07/17/21 – The Giggling Girl

Synopsis: At Battlefield Mall, I ran into this adorable, 19 y/o quarter Filipina, 75% white girl. She was, as Mark Manson puts it, a ‘Fuck yes’ girl right off the bat. She obeyed my leading, responded positively to my qualifiers, but didn’t have enough social intelligence to detect sarcasm or my push-pulls. Unfortunately, I made a few fuck-ups I knew I shouldn’t have. They will be listed on my Sticking Points section.

In hindsight, I believe a few factors which screwed the set come into play:

a.) The last ‘Fuck yes’ girl I met was in Milwaukee. That was – at bare minimum – at least 2-3 months ago. My experience with highly receptive girls has been significantly dumbed down due to…

b.) … the fact I’ve only been going out twice a week. Why? Yesterday, I drove 1 hour, 10 minutes to hit my first day game venue. Imagine tryin’ that 4-5 times a week. Hell no. This is why logistics is important.

c.) Since I haven’t been going out regularly enough, my skillset has seen a visible decline. Now, to be fair, it isn’t a drastic drop in game skill, but it’s noticeable.

So, with that in mind, I did the best I possibly good. My girl was mostly on, but at the end, we agreed to meet up later on tonight since she had work at 4PM. Called her and she gave a whirlwind of excuses why she couldn’t come out.

What I Did Right:

Pushed The Interaction As Far As I Could Go: I knew from my prior training in Milwaukee/Chicago that I needed to push the set as far as humanly possible. I tried bouncing her to a Starbucks, going for her phone # instead of social media, etc.

Comfort With Indoor Venues: An interesting observation I noticed after my day game session is how I had zero fear approaching at Battlefield Mall. In the past, I absolutely abhorred indoor venues (ie. malls, supermarkets, etc) with people going to and fro. I didn’t enjoy the idea of some stranger listening, but most importantly judging, my game. I feel like when I’m truly present in the moment, I simply don’t give a shit.

Sticking Points:

Leveling: Kaitlyn, the Giggling Girl, wasn’t socially in-tune to detect sarcasm or comprehend push-pulls to any meaningful extent. This is what Todd V calls “leveling”. A big reason why I shot myself in the foot was the fact I was “over-gaming” her by being too socially savvy. She’s 19, from SoCal, and felt like she wanted a guy she can look up to. If I had to re-do the set, I’d focus more on having her qualify a fuck-ton more + adding more comfort.

A Bit Needy: Fuck, I can’t believe I made this mistake. This is what happens when you significantly slow down gaming in a mid-sized town. Anyway, Kaitlyn had to check on her job application at a Dillards. I lead her in the right direction, but after I tried Starbucks closing her, she told me, “You don’t have to go, you can come with me,” and I took that as a green light to continue the set.

JP told me, in such situs, to NOT follow a girl’s lead if she’s shopping or has to meet anyone. Why? It comes off as needy and you degrade your value in the girl’s eyes. A better alternative would’ve been to take her # and had her meet up AFTERWARD.

Caught By Surprise: I’ll be honest, I didn’t expect a cheery, happy-go-lucky demeanor from Kaitlyn soon after the open. Like, I almost froze since my brain was like, “Wtf?” Yes, yes, I know I should be well prepared given my year of experience as a pick-up artist. It’s just that cutting down my game sessions left a mark in my skillset.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Correctly Handle Fuck Yes Girls: Remember how I gamed highly receptive girls in Chicago. Don’t DHV yourself as much, establish comfort + have her qualify alot + leading. That’s it.

Comments: The real question is: Should I leave Springfield -> Chicago earlier than October 1st?

06/26/21 – Removing Barriers To Success

On Saturday, 06/26/2021 I ventured off to Springfield, MO after deciding to go out only twice a week, but approach 5 girls at a bare minimum. This would leave me at 10 girls per week, enough time to manage my current skillset with minimal regression when I hit Chicago. However, I still feel this is far too little and I’m debating on popping in another day of the week so there isn’t a 5 day gap before my next game session.

Disclaimer: This isn’t a formal field report and won’t detail my man-to-woman interactions like I normally do; instead, it will focus on what actions I took to up my game in unfavorable situations. This info will be incredibly useful during Chicago winters given how brutally cold they can be. With that out of the way, let’s begin.

For the past month or so, my game lagged due to bad mindsets and my personal decision to live in Springfield. In my mind, I fucked up by moving to Missouri to save money. It cost me ample targets and a flourishing dating life I once had in Chicago; the fact I drive an hour away to hit up my day game venues; and by the time I hit up Chi Town, I would have lost months of progress.

Of course, my low vibration energy displayed itself in set. Girls sensed this and cut the interaction short. It didn’t help I abruptly ended practicing any inner game mindsets (ie. power of now, affirmation meditation, etc) due to the slump I put myself in.

Thankfully, I’m starting to turn shit around.

After telling myself I’d go out both Saturday and Sunday, I kept myself on a leash from ejecting out of Springfield early by promising to do 5 sets at a minimum. Of course, once you do your 5 sets, you’re already in state and ready to knock off a few more. That’s when shit really gets good.

I started practicing being present in the moment between sets, scouted for girls no matter the day game venue, etc. I ended up knocking out 6 sets – and pushing them a little, but not as far as I could – before calling it a day.

IMPORTANT: Therefore, I will do the following: Go out to Springfield on Wednesday (starting July 14th), Saturday and Sunday. On Sat/Sun, do 5 approaches. No excuses. No riding out of town early. On Weds, since I arrive at 5pm, do 3 sets. No excuses. However, since it will be dark when I get back, drive super slow back to Dad’s place.

When I’m between sets, I will focus on the present moment without checking my phone when bored.

My Finance Plan

In order to leave Springfield on October 29th, I will need to spend $400 or less per month max on food, while the rest goes to my $322 car payment. I believe I can easily cover breakfast by the pop tarts Dad buys me at the Dollar Tree, while a majority of my income will go toward lunch ONLY. Therefore, I will write up a pay schedule depending on what I’m doing that day.

Pay Schedule:

  • Monday: Adderall day – just eat canned food at clinic
  • Tuesday: Just eat canned food at clinic
  • Wednesday: Game session – eat general chicken ($6) at Woods and that’s it.
  • Thursday: Adderall day – just eat canned food at clinic
  • Friday: Just eat canned food at clinic
  • Saturday: Game session – eat breakfast at clinic; eat Ichiban lunch ($10) and that’s it.
  • Sunday: Game session – eat breakfast at clinic; eat Ichiban lunch ($10) and that’s it.

Total: $26 + $30 gas = $56/wk = $224/mth

The next section will detail how much I SHOULD be saving if I follow these guidelines without straying. It will list out my potential savings month-by-month and encourage me to obey my schedule.

Monthly Savings:

  • End of July should be $14,400
  • End of August should be $17,100
  • End of September should be $19,900
  • End of October should be $22,500

Notes:

  • Approximately $80 a month will go toward gas to Springfield. This may increase once I bump my game sessions to 3-4 times a week once college semester starts.

My Chicago Game Plan

In November I plan to move to Chicago with 22K saved up. With a limitless supply of girls, I will draft a schedule which I believe will best improve my odds of scoring as much as humanly possible depending on if colleges are off or on season.

Schedule (college off-season):

  • Monday: Exercise (30 mins)
  • Tuesday: Exercise (30 mins)
  • Wednesday: Chicago street game
  • Thursday: Chicago street game
  • Friday: Navy Pier & surrounding area
  • Saturday: Chicago street game
  • Sunday: Chicago street game – exercise (early in the morning; 30 min)

Schedule (college on-season; begins January 15th):

  • Monday: Exercise (30 mins)
  • Tuesday: Harry S Truman College
  • Wednesday: University of Illinois at Chicago
  • Thursday: Harry S Truman College
  • Friday: OFF – exercise (30 mins)
  • Saturday: Chicago street game
  • Sunday: Chicago street game – exercise (early in the morning; 30 min)

[Reflection] My 1 Year Game Anniversary

On June 19th, 2020 I promised myself to learn the art of seducing and bedding beautiful women – or as it’s commonly known as, pickup artistry. It has been exactly one year since I began my journey. I’ve gone through massive highs and terrible lows; fought against my inner demons which sought to prematurely end my pickup career; and dated dozens of women by pure, hard labor and my utter devotion to game.

Before I continue, let me tell you a little about myself: I’m a 5’6”, 29 year old Asian guy with an average physique. I don’t work out and primarily focus on verbal game / day game to seduce women. I’ve been gaming consistently 3-5 days a week; no breaks; for 12 whole months or 1 year. While many guys have their preferred game style, I primarily learned pickup in a structured + natural method via Todd V and JP (Todd’s protégé).

This isn’t a formal field report, per se, but rather a reflection of my first full year in becoming a master pickup artist.

What were my biggest sticking points my first 1-2 months as a PUA newbie?

Envy: When I first began my pickup journey, I ran with a wing who had more sexual experience + social skills than I did. Every time I approached a girl, I’d overgame and feel tryhard af. Meanwhile, he’d land instadates, makeouts, etc without much effort. Despite the fact I put in far more work than he did at approaching and my wing possessed pretty bad AA without me, he still got triple my results.

I distinctly recall whining to an advanced PUA I know that it wasn’t fair. I wrote dozens of field reports, worked my ass off approaching nearly twice the girls he does, and consulted guys on numerous forums/Discord servers.

However, in hindsight, he had weaknesses that I never possessed.

For example, he relied completely on motivation. Once his motivation vanished – so did he. He relied heavily on wings, while I was entirely self-sufficient with or without a wing. Within 3 months, he dropped the game after his ex-girlfriend came crawling back to him.

Now I’ve far exceeded him and get/meet more girls than he does.

Moderate AA/Socially Disconnected: I was afflicted with moderate approach anxiety my first few weeks of pickup. Unlike most guys, I felt I never had an issue with social anxiety, but rather, being socially disconnected. As an introvert, I enjoyed being in my head instead of the real world. Girls inherently knew in set I wasn’t present in the moment. Like I was day dreaming while talking to them and wanted to escape this high pressure interaction.

Within a 1-2 months, my AA reached manageable levels, but my social disconnectedness persisted a few months further.

Try Hard: Boy oh boy, was this a sticking point. Since pickup artists preach DHVing yourself and eschew comfort (esp for American girls), I felt the need to throw out push-pulls, cold reads, etc like fuckin’ candy. I came across as disingenuous, inhuman, and robotic. Comfort simply wasn’t apart of my game repertoire. A mistake that took months to rectify.

No Structure: During my first few months practicing game, I didn’t have a structure to follow. For example, open -> display value/comfort -> have a girl qualify -> once she’s hooked enough, go for instadate -> after instadate, bounce to another venue or close. That didn’t exist during my early months as a PUA. I flailed around like a chicken with it’s head cut off since I couldn’t pinpoint a girl’s attraction level.

What were my biggest sticking points 3-6 months in as a high beginner PUA?

Calibration Issues: This is primarily due to the fact I couldn’t read a girl’s body language. During this time, I had a growing grasp of verbal game, but nonverbals didn’t click with me yet. I’d either establish too much comfort, with a little bit of value or too much value, with a little bit of comfort. However, thanks to reference experience (ie. making out with girls during night game, routines that worked in the past, etc), I was able to niche down on micro-expressions which helped my learning curve.

Hooking: Girls hooked at the beginning of the interaction, but lost interest quickly. I was either too overexcited if they hooked for an extended period of time (and consequently, they lost interest) or too try hard. The solution was implementing qualifiers which took me 1-2 months of repeated practice to fully internalize.

Escalation (Instadates): My first instadate started 3 months into my pickup journey. I was starting to drop the game and implement more natural, man-to-woman convos but still erred on the side of value. At this point, I’d successfully take girls on instadates once every 1-2 weeks, but it wouldn’t progress past that. I’d get a flaky number after the date was done and never see the girl again.

It wasn’t until I met the guys on r/CovertPickup at the 5 month mark (November, 2020) that my game begin skyrocketing.

What were my biggest sticking points 7-9 months in as a low intermediate PUA?

Dealing With Regression: As with any skill, you regress to a prior level before increasing to a new baseline and the process repeats itself. It was no different with pickup artistry. If I had to list the #1 thing I hated about learning pickup, it’s regression. It’s the feeling of advancing so far, watching your skillset skyrocket and thinking it will go on forever. Before all of a sudden, you feel like a retard, you lost the golden mouthpiece, and you’re making rookie mistakes you inherently KNOW to avoid.

And then… a few weeks later, you’re back at your old self, but slightly better; however, you don’t see major breakthroughs compared to when you first started and may overlook your small – but stacking – improvements.

Lack of Inner Game: I exclusively practiced outer game techniques for 8 months before delving into inner game. At this point in my pickup journey, I was landing instadates (+1 notch I got by sheer luck) virtually every week, but I was at an impasse. No foreseeable progress was visible for approximately a month before I simply got tired and started researching an entirely new subject: Inner Game.

I started off with practicing James Marshall’s “projecting sexual intent” technique infield – which, quite honestly, is a mix of both inner and outer game – before I discovered The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle thanks to u/fastlife15.

It was a total gamechanger.

My pickup skills hit new heights, as I was able to be present in the moment and actively listen/calibrate to what the girl said + project sexual intent on and off. Any outer game skills I learned (ie. push-pulls, qualifiers, etc) pretty much ran in the background. I still said them, but they’re highly calibrated and didn’t require conscious thought.

If I had to re-do my pickup journey all over again, I’d start with inner game mindsets -> outer game techniques.

Balancing Value/Comfort: At the 7 month mark, I knew how to easily convey value, but was in the process of balancing comfort. This was accomplished by telling myself to have a fun, playful vibe 80% of the time, while DHVing myself the other 20%. At first, I was a little clumsy, but once I implemented inner game mindsets, it didn’t take long for me to get a handle of balancing both comfort/value.

Lack of Real, Actual Dates: During this period, I’d land instadates multiple times a week when I went out. In all honesty, I was getting bored of ’em. I wanted to advance to the next level, not remain as the fun, flirty guy girls met in Milwaukee and Chicago before having the eternal text conversation to nowhere.

I successfully turned instadates to real, actual dates by doing the following:

a.) Spend hours with a girl: More time spent with you = more commitment on her end. A few hours spent with a girl means you’ve become an investment you can capitalize on. I’d generally bounce a girl to an instadate venue -> bounce her to a 2nd more intimate venue like a bar. On average, I’d aim to at least spend an hour on any particular girl. Make sure the # is solid before rejuvenating your social energy and bouncing to the next girl.

b.) Have her qualify a fuckton: I cannot state how important qualifiers are in set. I’d say they’re more important than other value based techniques like push-pulls or cold reads. As I advanced my PUA skillset, I’d focus my attention on having the girl qualify to me a ton before closing. A few examples are, “Wait, you’re a [insert occupation/field of study here]? Alright, I’ll be honest with you, I know a few [insert occupation/field of study here] and they’re a liiiittle boring. I’m HOPING you’re a fun person.” A few questions or statements that’ll make her fall into your worldview works wonders.

c.) Lead, lead, lead: This is incredibly important as well. Move your girl around. If you’re indoors, move her around the bar. Easy as that. If you met her on the streets. Make simple commands like, “Let’s move over here so we aren’t in the way,” “Let’s take a seat,” “Are you heading this way? Cool, let’s go.” The more entitled you feel to a girl, the more likely you’ll give commands and simply not care what she thinks.

d.) Actively listen/calibrate to the girl + project sexual intent on and off: This falls under comfort, but will mostly likely encompass 80% of your interaction. Once I learned how to drop the game and talk to girls like a normal guy, I began coming across as a human being compared to some disingenuous game robot. I was able to calibrate, accurately predict the girl’s subcomms and respond accordingly.

Finally, what were my biggest sticking points 9-12 months in as a true intermediate PUA?

Entitlement Issues: At this stage of my pickup journey, I made my second pull, was going on real dates, and texting so many girls on both WhatsApp and my actual phone that I didn’t care if they flaked. I’d just find another girl. However, I still lacked entitlement with 8s, 9s and 10s. Most women I dated fell in the HB 7 range, a few 6s, but I still self-sabotaged when it came to hotties who displayed a true interest in me.

My game was hella solid and hotties loved me for it. It was objectively true, but my subconscious still wanted to believe the AFC Adam still existed. He couldn’t get 8s, 9s and 10s… it was impossible! And my brain did whatever it could to prove the ego right.

So far, I’m utilizing affirmations and simply going out and getting reference experience to destroy these self-sabotaging beliefs.

Learning How to Handle Real Dates: I knew how to handle instadates like a boss since it was a carryover from the initial cold approach. However, I treated real, actual dates the same way. After speaking with John Sonmez, he stated I’d come off as scummy and clearly looked like I had an agenda to the girl’s eyes – which, consequently, came to bite me in the ass every friggin’ time.

If I ran the exact same game I did when I first met the girl, I’d be shooting myself in the foot. As in, on a real, actual date the girl already took the time and effort to meet you in person; so you’ve already established yourself as a high value man and there’s no need to stack more value. While instadates require little investment on the girl’s part.

The solution was painfully easy: Be normal. Take an interest to what the girl is saying (ie. don’t think she’s “boring”). Calibrate to her vibe and mood. Project sexual intent on and off so she knows you have balls.

Pulling: At the 9-12 month mark, I’ve had multiple opportunities to pull girls from the initial pickup. I was able to fluidly balance value/comfort as such a rate, girls wanted to get banged out be me within a few hours of meeting them. I’d say my SDLs didn’t work due to a few reasons: a.) Self-sabotage: Since my belief system thought it was impossible to pull girls during the day within hours of meeting them. Despite the fact I logically knew this was wrong. b.) Not enough experience with SDLs in general.

What did I do to blow past my sticking points and advance to the next level?

Being Brutally Honest With Myself: I never beat around the bush. Nor did I lie to others about my accomplishments. In my mind, what purpose does it serve? To boost the ego? To impress a bunch of dudes on a message board? In reality, lying about your results or twisting the truth will set you back months. Guys who know what the fuck they’re doing need to know exactly what happened in set in order to help you.

Keeping To A Schedule: I obeyed my schedule like god. 3-5 set days a week. No more, no less. It didn’t matter if it was snowing, raining, or icy cold. If I had a day game session, I was out infield. I knew learning game was a long, oftentimes painful process and I couldn’t rely on motivation to push me along. A schedule – and therefore, an obligation to myself – was required.

Recording My Sets: Lots of PUAs – whether newbies, intermediates, or advanced – refuse to use an audio recorder to record their sets. I think it may be self-conscious of the actual interaction, or a plethora of other reasons. I, on the other hand, decided to record my interaction with girls and showed them to advanced PUAs so they can pinpoint exactly where I went wrong and what I did right.

It’s been insanely useful tbh.

Writing Field Reports: I write a ton of field reports. I exclusively practice game and I don’t really have any other hobbies. God knows I should start. But in any other case, whenever I thought an audio recording was worth uploading to YouTube, I’d write up an FR which detailed the following:

Synopsis: A detailed report of the entire interaction itself. Including where I met the girl, what kind of opener I used, her personality traits, my mood and how I felt I personally did, etc.

What I Did Right: A list of correct actions I undertook during the set, accompanied by how I executed them.

Sticking Points: A list of incorrect actions I undertook during the set, usually pinpointed by timestamps on the audio recording.

What I’ll Do Next Time: After pinpointing and listing my sticking point(s), I’d research how to counteract said mistake or consult advanced PUAs on the issue. Once the solution has been discovered, I’d log it on my FR in hopes I avoid the same mistake twice.

Comments: Any additional comments that I think are required.

Seeking Advice From Intermediate/Advanced PUAs: I’m a member of PUA FB groups, subreddits, forums, Discord servers, etc with intermediate/advanced PUAs that I’ve either winged with or offered valuable advice which boosted me to the next level. If I didn’t seek mentorship, my progress would have been MUCH slower than it is now.

Unfortunately, I will endure a lag in my game progress since I’m living in Springfield, MO for 5 months. It’s a mid-sized town lacking many viable targets. Consequently, I’ve only been able to get in 10-12 approaches per week thus far. However, I’m hoping this sacrifice pays off since my objective is to save $$$ before living in Chicago to take advantage of it’s limitless supply of girls.

I can’t foresee massive strides in my game from June, 2021 – November, 2021. But I’ll do my damnedest NOT to regress by approaching 10-12 girls per week. Once colleges start up again in August, I’ll pump my game sessions to 4 days a week.

I look forward to Year 2.

How To Prepare Myself Before Going Infield: The Darth Bane Method

After listening to Darth Bane: Path of Destruction, I discovered Bane had issues mastering the Dark Side of the Force which resemble my issues learning Game. His progress skyrocketed at first, before a period of regression and a dark valley of self-doubt, hesitation, and fear of unleashing his true potential.

I can’t help feel the same way about my game sometimes.

Inevitably, he blows past this dark period by totally and utterly giving himself to the Dark Side of the Force. In other words, he let his subconscious take over, was fully present in the moment, and used what he knew of the Dark Side without reservation.

I tried this at Barnes and Nobles before beginning my day game session and I felt powerful. Like I was on the hunt and my unsuspecting prey couldn’t handle my raw skill.

I must ALWAYS do this before I go out infield.

Give myself entirely to the Game.

How To Game Springfield Girls

In this post, I want to highlight everything I’ve learned regarding Springfield girls and the best mindsets required in order to game them properly. This post will serve as a reference guide and how I should prep myself since I’ll be gaming in Missouri for 10 months.

First and foremost, here are the positive attributes of Springfield itself and it’s denizens:

  • Despite having a population of 500,000, Springfield has a big city vibe.
  • Girls are more receptive to direct cold approach vs city girls.
  • Being direct in general + comfort is king in Springfield
  • Since I live at my Dad’s place, I can save up $$$…
  • … And travel to wherever I want due to having a month of PTO

05/26/21 – First Daygame Session in Springfield

On Wednesday, 05/26/21, I decided to try my hand at day game in Springfield, MO. This was accomplished after two days of scouting for optimal day game locales. Needless to say, I’ll be utilizing the “island hopping” strategy of Marshalls -> Ross -> Barnes & Nobles -> Battlefield Mall. It’s the best you can do with mid-sized towns of 500,000 people; at least, until college semesters start again.

Before I begin this report, I’d like to state I happily proved my painbody wrong. I got the impression Springfield girls were flighty, closed off to strangers, and just overall a pain in the ass to work with.

This idea stems from the fact most Missouri residents I’ve met before – and after – I discovered game tended to be rude and standoffish. I believed this notion would cross over into game… and I’m pleasantly surprised it didn’t. In a matter of fact, they’re more receptive to cold approach vs city girls. A polar opposite to what my mind dreamt up.

At the end of the day, I managed to do four approaches. Two will be logged to analyze the small town girl psyche and how I could have improved.

Approach #1The Christian Girl

Synopsis: When I first hit up Springfield, I immediately checked out Ross only to find no viable sets. However, after heading into Marshalls, I found this girl sporting outdoorsy clothes which reminded me of a hipster. I went with my usual direct friendly open before gaming her. She was friendly and receptive. However, I tried qualifying her on religion which ended up as my downfall.

What I Did Right:

Ran Decent Game Despite New Environment: While I lived in Springfield, MO for two years from 2010-2012, I never gamed in the city proper. I’m surprised I ran decent game despite slight anxiety of moving to a new city.

Ran Decent Game Despite Negative (and Wrong) Beliefs: I had negative – and wrong – preconceived notions of Missouri girls as rude, closed off to outsiders, etc. Despite low vibration energy running through my head, I ran pretty solid game that I’m happy with. Better yet, the girl’s responses totally destroyed any negative outlook my mind dreamt up.

Sticking Points:

Don’t Trash Religion: I’m not anti-Christian by any means. I use religion as a qualifier so girls can let out their “inner bad girl” in set. However, I am in the Bible Belt of the USA now. Lots of girls are true believers of Christianity and therefore, it would be within my best interest to dismiss any mention of religion or find a different way to qualify them.

Weak Close: Unfortunately, my close was pretty weak with this girl. Remember, you’re a high-class city boy who isn’t impressed by country girls. Be the man they look up to. Prove them wrong.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Learn BF Destroyers: Once again, since I’m in the Bible Belt of the USA, lots of girls are in genuine, committed relationships. I need to research and learn how to utilize BF destroyers.

Entitlement: While my daily affirmations + presence show themselves in set, it’s fighting against anxiety of moving to a new city and negative (yet dying) mindset I have regarding MO folks. Gotta remember: They prove themselves to ME and not the other way around.

Comments: Don’t trash religion as MO girls seem highly devout compared to city girls.

Approach #2The 80s Looking Girl

Synopsis: 15 minutes after gaming the Christian Girl, I met this geeky looking chick with a purple Star Wars shirt and leotard shorts. After doing a direct compliment, I discovered girls are hella bored in Springfield (not surprising) and I feel like I can def use this to my advantage. However, when she was about to dip, I asked her an innocently sounding enough, “what do you do for fun around here?” type question. Highly indirect, but I managed to steer the convo back to where I want it.

Tried Snapchat closing her, but ran into issues with the app.

What I Did Right:

Managed To Make Directional Openers Work: When the convo was about to fizzle out, I managed to turn the set around by asking what people do around here. She gave me a good answer before I steered the convo back where I wanted it. A little surprising, but a welcome one.

Sticking Points:

Lead, Lead, Lead: This girl was into me. I didn’t lead as much as I’d like to which screwed the set. If I had just kept at it and took a more proactive role, I bet I’d have this girl in the bag.

Lack of Entitlement: I believe I discussed this with the boys before, but when it comes to white girls, I have entitlement issues. Thankfully, I’m in a city that’s literally 90% white. While I may have blundered by not truly expressing myself in set, I will have a TON of practice living in a city with lots of cute white girls.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Lead More: Self-explanatory.

Comments: She was hella into me. Missouri girls want direct and masculine men. Lead, lead, lead.

05/19/21 – Assume She’s DTF Earlier Than You Think

On 05/19/21, I decided to do a final round of Milwaukee street game ever since the Beer Garden re-opened up for Summer. At first, I wasn’t too serious about it due to the fact I leave Wisconsin on Friday – literally two days from now – and simply gamed in order to keep my skillset sharp.

However, literally the first set I open, my girl went from true neutral -> receptive pretty fuckin’ fast. She was DTF like crazy; worse yet, I knew it but my lack of entitlement and programming didn’t feel comfortable tryna bang on the instadate. It’s unfortunate, but a valuable learning lesson.

This report will log my final approach in Milwaukee before I grind it out on the streets of Springfield, MO.

Approach #1The Girl With The Broken Arm

Synopsis: After texting my old wing when I first started game, we agreed to meet up at Beer Garden in Milwaukee. Since I knew he was traveling from Waukesha, which is 30-45 mins away, I decided to hit up this red haired, pale chick with a broken arm. Her name was Lucy, was a soft HB 7 and reading a book while drinking a spiked lemonade.

Since this felt more like social circle game mixed in with cold approach, I opened with, “Excuse me, I know this is totally random, but you have the most West Coast look I’ve seen all day,” before casually talking with her but projecting sexual intent + playful vibe (important).

30 or so minutes in, Lucy knew what I was there for and projected sexual intent right back at me.

Fuck man, this is where I messed up. Her BT was sky high. She was down af for anything, but I felt like I wasn’t ready yet. It was clearly all my fault, not hers. Unfortunately, she knew I was waiting for a friend (fr tho since I invited Chris to hang out w/ me before I met her).

Once Chris arrived, I told him the situ and he completely understood. He said he was going to take a walk around the park, while I continued gaming Lucy.

At the end, I tried closing Lucy by telling her to take a quick walk with me. Since I waited so long, she said we’d do it another time and she reeeeally wanted to read a few pages of this book she picked up.

Lucy and I both could feel sexual tension brewing in the air. And I felt the need to release said tension… by pulling her face close to me, and making out with her. She gladly reciprocating and hell, began kissing my neck before pulling back.

With that in mind, I snagged her number and tried making plans with her that night. Didn’t work out as planned.

What I Did Right:

Solid Comfort / Value Game: My outer game has gotten really fuckin’ good during day game. I did some night game with Chris that night and I could see the transference over. It was pretty amazing what I’m able to do with 11 months of pure, hard labor learning pickup.

Total Reliance on Subcomms: I simply focused on running my outer game while being present in the moment + subcomms ran in the background. I believe I made an MMORPG comparison a month or so ago. It’s def true that outer game is like your active abilities, while inner game are passive abilities that heavily depend on how much you worked on it out of set.

Power of Now + Affirmations: I’m so thankful u/fastlife15 showed me how to drastically improve my inner game, which consequently, boosted my outer game a fuckton.

Sticking Points:

Didn’t Pull The Trigger Sooner: In hindsight, I should have tried pulling Lucy an hour or so before I closed her. She was highly receptive to my leading, vibe, etc. She was down af. I don’t want to sound anti-religious (I’m not), but my Judeo Christian programming growing up kinda fucked with my set. Like, yeah, I believe all girls are the same… but it’s time to realize they’re also DTF that very same day.

Girls Are More DTF Than You Think: This situ happened twice now. With Cassie and now with Lucy. Both girls were hella down, but I self-sabotaged by “taking it slow,” until the first date. Time that I don’t have since I’m leaving MKE on Friday.

Went For The Kiss: If you’re a newbie, I’m sure you’re surprised as hell. It’s actually far more beneficial to NOT kiss or kino too hard. It flairs up ASD like a mofo and you lose the girl. I kissed Lucy since I felt like I wanted to gain something spending 2-3 hours with this girl. It’s needy and fucks up the set. Save it when she’s in your apartment.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Once Heavy IOIs Pop UP, Begin Moving The Set Along: With two girls showing me how fast they’re willing to fuck, I literally have no excuse to move the set along the moment sexual tension builds up.

Comments: When heavy IOIs pop up, be sure to capitalize on her interest quickly – lest you never get the chance again.

My PTO Gameplan

Since I will be living in Springfield for 10 months, I believe it’s profitable if I hit up various US cities and spend my PTO that way instead of visiting the Phils this year. If I had to make a list of PTO days, they’d be:

  1. June 10th – 13th: Denver
  2. June 25th: Chicago
  3. July: Hit up ATL w/ Pete to see Erb.
  4. August: Chicago or NYC to see Neil
  5. September: Austin to see Erb
  6. October: Chicago
  7. November: Chicago
