08/7-9/20 – Little Big Lessons

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 08/07-09/2020, Chris and I did a three day game stint in Chicago.

While driving, we listened to a Natural Lifestyles podcast and one of their tips caught my attention: “It doesn’t matter if you approach directly. Saying ‘I thought you were cute and I had to say hi’ without emotion is just words to a girl. At most you’ll get is ‘Oh thanks’ before she walks off. Add emotion. Be aware and present in the interaction.

As if by luck, I also discovered an optimal stopping method which nets me the most results: The Police Stop. You don’t approach from the side or behind. Simply hold your hand up when the girl is walking toward you a fair distance away and say, “Excuse me.”

I don’t know what it is, but girls seem far more receptive when approaching in-front of them.

Implementing those two tips drastically improved my game. A ‘eureka’ moment for day game, you could say.

Anyway, three approaches were worth recording. So let’s get to them.

08/08/20Approach #1: The Croatian Receptionist

Synopsis: After leaving the Cloud Gate statue, Chris and I ran into this well-dressed Croatian American woman sporting a brown pencil skirt bottom and a white dress shirt top. She had a bouquet of roses between her arms. Did a “police stop” on her before she gave a big ‘ol grin.

She was receptive right off the bat. Very friendly. Gave me her phone number. It was solid. Unfortunately, she wants to be friends. Damn.

Sticking Point:

– After I naturally start using emotion in my sets, I seriously need to focus on calming down and speaking slower. I spoke waaaaay too fast in set.

What I Did Right:

– James Marshall was right. Implementing emotion and awareness in the opener was paramount for success. With it, I’ve had less “Oh thanks” before the girl walks off and more sets staying so I can run my game.

– I didn’t hesitate. I saw her. Thought she was absolutely adorable and went for the approach with a blank slate.

– I want to reiterate how important adding emotion to the set is. JP stated it doesn’t matter how long the set is, but rather, what you do within that 1-2 minute timeframe with the girl.

My set with the Croatian was literally one minute, 30 seconds long. By displaying emotion in the set, the number was solid.

Comments: Seriously, speak slower. Control your excitement.

08/08/20 – Approach #2The Utah Mormons

Synopsis: A little before meeting the Croatian Receptionist, we ran into two Mormon girls from Utah chilling on a bench. My target was a soft HB 8, red dress, incredibly attractive, and friendly – but not receptive. When Chris and I approached the girls, he immediately noticed a wedding ring on both their fingers that I didn’t see.

At the end, I didn’t get the number, but the set was decent.

Sticking Point:

– Didn’t read the girl’s blueprint. Cursed quite a bit. Ran “generic” game without calculating the girl’s personality.

– Was a bit confused since it’s difficult running game with your wing next to you. It’s not his presence, per se, but the fact you’re talking over him. Makes the set slightly chaotic.

What I Did Right:

– Once again, opened the set with an emotional oomph behind it. Worked pretty well.

Comments: Found out my target had a kid. Never date single moms.

08/09/20 – Approach #1The German Volleyball Player (favorite set)

Synopsis: While buying a Dr. Pepper at WalGreens, I saw this gigantic German volleyball player who towered over virtually everyone there. She was a soft HB 8, small tits, mid-sized ass, and an athletic physique. Unfortunately, my mic slipped out of my shirt during this time, so a recording isn’t available.

I looked at the cashier as she walked out, put my Dr. Pepper on the counter and said, “Uhh, hold on for a sec” before darting outside to approach her. I came in the set with a ton of intensity, passion, and sadly, a bit of thirst. She was friendly, but overwhelmed (she literally verbalized it a few minutes into the interaction). I was a bit too direct.

Anyway, I discovered she was a foreign exchange student from Frankfurt, heading to New Mexico the next day, and was a staggering 6’3” tall compared to my 5’6” ass lol. My head craned up the entire set as we walked.

After the set, I met up with Chris at a Subway. His eyes bulged as he saw me walking side-by-side with her outside. His response? “Jesus Christ, now that’s a fuckin’ tree right there!” Shit was hilarious.

Sticking Point:

– Massively needed to work on reading this girl’s blueprint. She was reserved, very German in her accent and demeanor, almost serious. For example, at the middle-end of the set my target said she had a boyfriend. I responded with, “Well, obviously we won’t bring him on the first date,” and she seemed confused. As if she couldn’t comprehend American humor.

– While I added emotion on the opener, I need to regulate how much emotion I bring to the table. She was overwhelmed by how confident and assertive I was. More statements of empathy. Less thirst.

– Once she declared she was overwhelmed, I should have stepped back, “restarted” the interaction, asked her personal or non-threatening questions and established comfort. Not continue trying to spike value.

I need to learn how to be self-aware in the moment with calm, relaxed, slow and methodical speaking.

– Don’t be amazed by her height. I’m sure many guys are.

What I Did Right:

– Approached boldly. No hesitation. Didn’t care how tall she was. Hell, that accompanied by her looks emboldened me.

– Was able to hook for the first minute or two… before she began to get overwhelmed by how high-energy I was.

Comments: I need to learn how to be self-aware in the moment with calm, relaxed, slow and methodical speaking.

08/1-2/20 – Solo Gaming in the Big City

This report will cover a single approach on 08/01/20 and 08/02/20, both situated in Chicago.

On Saturday, 08/01/20, Chris and I ventured off to Chicago for another day game session. That particular Saturday wasn’t memorable. I got a single set that I thought was cool, very premise-y and sexualized, but nothing too big.

However, on Sunday, 08/02/20 was the first time I decided to solo day game in Chicago without relying on Chris. It felt… weird. Like, I was vulnerable; knowing that you’re completely alone with no friends to share your experiences with.

It wasn’t bad. On the contrary, it was quite good! It tells me I need to focus on operating as a solo PUA in “unexplored territory” and gives me a small taste of how I’d feel in EE countries when I expatriate there.

As stated above, I found two approaches worth writing about on Saturday and Sunday.

08/01/20Approach #1: The Polish Expat

Synopsis: At the Cloud Gate statue, Chris and I ran into an isolated baby-faced Polish girl. At a distance, she appeared underage. As I opened her, I discovered she’s a college student and was waiting for her Russian friends. Got a phone number. Sadly, was a flake.

Sticking Point:

– While I established premise, polarizing lines, I wasn’t able to hook the set. I believe it’s because I didn’t read the girl’s blueprint. She was an immigrant to the US from Poland. However, she lived here for a few years. I should have been low energy instead of my usual higher energy self.

– I speak waaaaaay too fast in set. Probably since I’m slightly nervous/excited. Need to tone it down!

What I Did Right: Effectively opened the set. Made her laugh a few times. Tried going for instadate early. Got number.

Comments:

– Blueprints are important!

– There are a ton of Slavs in Chicago

Audio recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHneppGorFQ&t=1s

—————————–

08/02/20Approach #1: The Russian Businesswoman

Synopsis: At Nordstrom on the Magnificent Mile, I ran solo and spotted this attractive Russian woman sporting a white dress shirt, tight black pencil skirt, and dirty blonde hair. When I opened her, I saw she was older. Early 40s, but a soft HB 7.

Set was short. Lasted a little over a minute and a half before it ended.

Sticking Point:

– She was an older business woman. Far too high energy. If I read her blueprint correctly, should have spoke much slower. Low energy. Logical since she’s Slavic.

What I Did Right: Very Man-to-Woman within that minute and a half. Very proud of myself for that. If she was a younger American girl, set may have gone far better. Tried leading the set. Lots of good qualities I displayed here.

Comments: I seriously need to focus on blueprints!

Audio recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQl-E9mNtyo

—————————–

A Note on Slavic Expats: While trying to impress a girl in set can be seen as try-hard, saying one or two words in their native tongue might give me brownie points in the interaction. For example, saying “privet” to the Russian businesswoman or “Dzien dobry” to the Polish expat.

Top EE Countries for me

This thread is heavily WIP, but will list all Eastern European countries where women are receptive to foreigners. More specifically, if they’ll be receptive to me. So far I have:

  1. Poland (TOP-TIER)
  2. Lithuania (TOP-TIER)
  3. Finland (TOP-TIER – EXPENSIVE AF – ONLY SPEND A MONTH HERE)
  4. Estonia
  5. Latvia
  6. Belarus (last)

Not So Great for me:

  1. Serbia (worst)
  2. Bulgaria
  3. Romania
  4. Hungary
  5. Croatia

07/26/20 – Persistence Pays Off

On Sunday, 07/26/20, Chris and I decided to venture off to Chicago for a day game session. Unfortunately, the night before, I got incredibly drunk and consequently, had a massive hangover on Sunday. I didn’t feel like doing shit. Honestly, I didn’t expect to do a single approach.

… But boy, was I wrong.

It’s strange: On days you’re well-rested, ready to game, and otherwise mentally prepared to talk to girls, you have a 50/50 shot of doing well.

However, on days you didn’t get much sleep, hungover, and generally feeling under the wind. You do amazing.

While I managed to approach lots of women, four stood out to me:

Approach #1: The British Analyst

Synopsis: I spotted a soft HB 7 brunette sporting a white dress on the sidewalk. Did an observational direct opener. I discovered she was British immediately, but made a mistake that I’ll log in Sticking Point. Set lasted 1 minute.

Sticking Point:

– Too excited to meet a British European girl. JP states I should be blase or nonchalant even if I’m excited. Next time, if I hear anything that truly does excite me, hide it.

– My observational openers are starting to become too try-hard. Possibly switch to “I thought you had the cutest fucking look and I had to say hi”.

What I Did Right: The technicalities of the approach was good. No AA.

Comments: N/A

Approach #2: The Russian LA Girls

Synopsis: At the Cloud Gate statue, Chris and I ran into four girls speaking Russian. All of them fluctuated between hard HB 7s or soft HB 8s. It lasted nearly 2 minutes. Turns out, they booked a flight from LA to Chicago. Red flags, in my opinion.

I managed to mildly hook a blonde Russian from the gaggle of Slavs. Her friends pulled her away. Ah well.

Sticking Point:

– Didn’t hook the set strongly enough. She was interested, but not interested enough to leave her friends. Alternatively, I should have befriended the group and snaked my way in.

What I Did Right: Hooked the set. Approached a 4-set effectively in a spontaneous “RSD Max” sort of way. This is despite the fact Chris said I was too far away.

Comments: If I approach bigger sets, the more confident I come across. Saw a few PUAs in Chicago. They only approached 1 or 2-sets.

Audio recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjvcNKh7hSI

Approach #3: The California Girl

Synopsis: My favorite set of the day. I ran into this hard HB 7 – soft HB 8 (to me) California girl. Just my type, too: Small tits, small ass, petite frame, dirty blonde-hair, giggly and playful personality. God damn. I loved gaming her. I genuinely found it fun.

I found her outside a 7/11, sitting on a suitcase, while gazing out into the street. Did an observational opener about how she “looked like she was going to travel the world”. This ushered a cute laugh before my testosterone kicked in from her vibe and I played a mix of cocky funny and flirty.

She came from San Diego, California and was visiting a friend in Chicago. Interesting tidbits, but I enjoyed her personality more than anything.

At the end, her faggy boyfriend stepped outside and saw the two of us playing it up. Even though she kept flirting with me, the guy stepped in and abruptly ended the set.

Sad nigga tears.

Sticking Point: N/A. It’s amazing how good a man games when he meets his type.

What I Did Right: Lots of things. I had no AA. Gamed my target to the best of my ability. Didn’t explicitly display interest and consequently, didn’t give my power away. Our interaction was flirty enough that she knew what was going on.

Comments: It’s crazy. My best sets occur on isolated stationary targets who I can approach like “it just happened”.

Approach #4: The Married Woman

Synopsis: My set of shame. At the end of the day, Chris and I ran into this isolated stationary hard HB 6 Latina. She was sitting down, eyes focused on a black-over-brown weenier dog. It trailed up to my shoes, sniffed it a bit, which allowed me to open with, “My, your dog is very curious.”

After that, I didn’t have to say much else. She was incredibly chatty, fluctuated between flirty and platonic, before I discovered a few interesting tidbits on her.

She was married. Her husband worked for Microsoft. He’s never home.

Ah shit. At the end, I successfully number closed her. I sent her a simple text of, “Hey [her name] it was nice meeting you

She responded with, “It was a pleasure. Let me know when y’all come back! Lots to see and do,” less than a minute later.

I’m conflicted. Lots of PUAs wouldn’t have an issue gaming interested married women. I most certainly do. I’ll debate and figure out how to handle the situation.

Sticking Point: N/A. Could have established a bit more premise, but overall got the job done.

What I Did Right: Lots of things. Didn’t have to game too much since my target was receptive.

Comments: Probably shouldn’t bang married women.

07/23/20 – The Casual, Blasé Opener

On 07/23/20, Thursday, I ventured off to Mayfair Mall for a solo day game session. Since I haven’t gone solo in a few weeks now, it was refreshing to completely rely on myself instead of a wing. It was “purer”, I guess you could say.

In any other case, I did three approaches, but one was worth writing about:

Approach #1: After two approaches, I spotted this pale, ginger hard HB 6 relaxing on a bench near a Starbucks inside Mayfair. I knew I couldn’t approach directly. In this context – an isolated stationary set texting on her phone – the best approach was to indirectly open the set. During that time, I flirt, establish premise, and overall act like a fun dude to be around with.

It’s worked so fucking well in the past.

Hell, most of my greatest sets felt so indirect, that I feel like “it just happened”.

Anyway, the set was good in my opinion. Unfortunately, she had a boyfriend and I quite possibly made a few mistakes that killed the interaction (ie. too excited to talk to the girl, high-pitch vocal tonality, speaking far too fast, etc).

07/19/20 – A Lesson in Direct Street Game and Reading A Girl’s Blueprint

On Sunday, 07/19/20, Chris and I ventured off to Chicago as par tradition at this point. At first, we anticipated visiting Woodfield Mall, before inevitably deciding to hit up Water Tower Place instead. Needless to say, it sucked. It was hella dead despite the fact it’s situated in the middle of Downtown Chicago!

At that point, we already purchased a $17 parking space and decided to make the best of our trip.

It was highly-educational to say the least. We practiced direct street game in Chicago and surprisingly enough, got positive responses from stationary sets.

At the end, I managed to do numerous approaches, with only two worth writing about.

Approach #1: Chris and I mulled around Chicago after leaving Water Tower Place and managed to find ourselves at the Cloud Gate sculpture. We saw two latinas – an Argentine and Mexican national – relaxing on a bench nearby.

We approached them and I honestly thought my set went really well. Yeah, I number closed her, but it was flakey. This is definitely one of those sets I need to show JP.

Approach #2: While Chris was chatting up a girl near Cloud Gate, I found this 33 year old German flight attendant. She looked like a girl in her mid-late 20s, professionally dressed and an air of maturity to her. This was an easy blueprint to read, but unfortunately, I kept going for a try-hard, fuckboy frame.

Initially, she was very amused, but I’m assuming she saw it as a gimmick.

We had a friendly conversation, she didn’t flirt back per se, but stayed in set as she watched my game. I believe this set would have been much better if I was a bit more logical, mature yet flirty, and lower energy.

Remember: More than the conversation, any game I run, or otherwise, I need to analyze and read a girl’s blueprint. Think, what type of guys does this girl date? How can I put myself in his shoes?

Notch #4: Dumpster Diving

No man should be proud of this.

On 07/19/20, Sunday, a few hours after our highly educational day game session, Chris and I decided to experiment with gutter game. What is gutter game exactly? It’s night street game. Particularly, approaching girls leaving bars/clubs at the mid-end of the night.

I initially learned about gutter game from Roosh V, but never practiced it. That is, until Chase Amante of Girls Chase recommended night street game as I quote, “Street approaches at night, especially at the end of the night, have higher odds of you taking the girl home than any other kind of approach you do.

Very bold claim. Chris and I had to put Chase’s theory to the test.

Needless to say, it worked, but… not in a good way.

At around midnight, we left McGillycuddys and decided to try our hand at gutter game. In the far distance, I spotted two targets who appeared thick, but not overly so. Good practice, I thought, as we made our approach.

I was damn wrong.

As we got closer, I was able to examine their features: Two hard 4s (if there’s even such a thing), overweight, decent faces, but horny as hell. Like, I wasn’t willing to run decent game on them. It wasn’t worth the effort in my opinion. But… they made everything so simple.

I won’t go in-depth on such low-quality targets, but I barely ran any game. For that, I kept going. Low energy, pretty much idle conversation and horny girls? Yeah, I was willing to dumpster dive for a single night. Am I proud of it? Fuck no. I’ll never do it again.

At the end of the night, the 4s brought Chris and I to a Western Plus near Milwaukee airport. We fucked them in the same room. Which was super fucking awkward for Chris and I.

I’m going to end the report there because nothing else needs to be written on. However, a few lessons were learned:

  1. In hindsight, we should have left the set and gone for hotter targets. It would have given us far more accurate, objective data on how effective gutter game is. As Todd V states, “Approaching hotter girls is good for the soul. Decent or ugly girls? Yeah, it’s easy. But what good is that? What have you learned as a person?
  2. Chris and I made a promise to approach and fuck soft HB 6s at a minimum. We felt like shit after fucking the 4s. Never again.
  3. Interestingly enough, with all the benefits of NoFap, I wasn’t able to last long in bed due to increased sensitivity. I’ll have to find ways to counter that.

Why NoFap is so Important for Game

I’m starting to see why Chris loves NoFap so damn much.

I’ll admit, I was slightly skeptical of NoFap and it’s benefits. I mean, I strongly agree not fapping for a few days increases libido and consequently, your desire to approach cute girls. But even after four days of not fapping, I’m seeing a noticeable increase in focus, energy, and mental clarity while in set.

On the flip side, if I game the same day or hell, even a day after I fap, I have low libido, fogginess, hesitation, and I’m totally unfocused in set.

I believe NoFap is essential for both day and night game for different reasons:

  • Night Game: You need testosterone to fuel and sexualize your set relatively fast. Without it, you’re having a friendly, yet slightly flirty conversation that doesn’t go anywhere. In addition, given the physical nature of night game in general, the extra dopamine and testosterone makes escalating far easier to accomplish.
  • Day Game: I find I’m a better conversationalist, establishing premise, and leading the girl comes naturally due to the extra dopamine / testosterone flowing through my body. Right now, day game is my bread and butter. While physical escalation isn’t prime during day game; moving the set from approach to instadate is.

JP Call #8: Questions and Notes (Study and fill out on weekend and Monday)

Questions:

  1. I’m starting to love doing observational direct openers. They work so fuckin’ well. What are some suggestions to improve my game after directly opening a walking set? A: Start using alot more statements of empathy on girls who feel weird about the situation.
  2. What do I do when a girl asks for my number instead of giving me her number. Like, if the set wasn’t good enough. What’s a good comeback? A: That one is tough. There really isn’t any good response to that.
  3. How do I become more playful and less logical in set? I remember a few months ago pre-lockdown, we were talking about passing shit tests and that I was too logical. How can I have that mindset in general when in set? A: Treat everything like a mini-vacation. Treat every set like “whatever happens… happens. I’m just here to have fun.” Think how can I make this set more enjoyable to myself.

Notes:

  • When JP does a direct opener, he always uses “you have the cutest look” and it kinda sneaks the premise in there.
  • Yes, push-pulls and negs are good, but don’t overdo it. For example, “you look so adorable in that tiny backpack, it looks kinda aged though.” Okay, that’s good. However, then I added, “… It kinda looks like it came from the early 2000s.” That’s a bit too much. One push-pull is enough.
  • If I am going to be push-pulling alot, overload with the compliments as well. That’s what JP does in his infield. Sometimes, he’ll give a really hard push to balance them out.
  • It’s great that I lead girls. Keep doing it.
  • Always. I mean always read a girl’s blueprint. Her dress style, personality, background, age, etc factor on how to game your target. For example, the German flight attendant on 07/20/20. I didn’t need a fuckboy frame, I needed a more logical, yet flirty frame.
  • While it’s nice to gauge how a girl is answering your questions, it’s far more important to gauge her blueprint. What’s her personality like? Is she quiet or extroverted? How is she sitting? How is she dressed?
  • Going with the point above: Convey yourself in a way where she’s used to go out with guys like you. For example, the South American latinas. I didn’t have to go full-on energetic mode. They gave a more calm vibe. What would a guy she dates look like? What would he do?
  • Don’t be excited when a girl says something that genuinely is interesting. Be indifferent. Aloof. Cool.
  • 6s and 7s don’t like to be lead. They’re not used to getting hit on, so it may come off as offensive or rude to them. Consequently, you’ll get a ton of shit tests. However, 8s, 9s and 10s love being led by a confident guy.
  • When a girl is confused or wary off my direct opener, always use a statement of empathy to calm her down.
  • When I lead girls – especially 8s, 9s and 10s – it shows that I’m not nervous around them. It gets them in their head and has them asking, “If he’s not nervous around me, who is he really hooking up with?”
  • This is a big one: Show honest signals and lead. Don’t be try-hard about it. Don’t try and impress the girl with push-pulls. Be natural.
  • When a girl goes into a store and I follow her, I have to wait by the dressing room, kinda sit there and wait for her. It looks needy after 5-10 minutes. Therefore, instead just say, “By the way, I have to go in a second, but maybe you can give me your number and we can catch up later.” Alternatively, say, “Hey, you need a break, there’s a Starbucks over there. It’ll only take two minutes and I’ll bring ya right back.

    If I say the above – especially the Starbucks instadate close – urgently, as if I’m in a hurry, the girl will feel like there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain. *IMPORTANT*
  • When it comes to the Masked Model, JP said I had two options:

    1. Try and get her number before she went inside the store. And when she’s in the store, keep texting her in the meantime while you pretend to do something else. In an hour or two, since I’ll still be texting, we’ll meet up by saying, “Hey, let’s meet at Starbucks in the middle of the mall“.

    2. Try and instadate immediately.
  • It’s what I say and do 1-2 minutes after I meet her that determines if the number is solid or not. While 10-20 minutes is okay, try and focus on the first 1-2 minutes. My success ratio for solid number should go up.
  • Start at 22:40

07/12/20 – The Power of Observational Direct Openers & Instadates

Shit, well, I didn’t think I’d ever applaud direct game as a viable – and dare I say superior – opener. At least, in malls, supermarkets, and possibly college campuses. However, the latter hasn’t been field tested yet. While I haven’t written a good ‘ol fashioned field report within the last week and a half, Chris and I have been busy tearing up Chicago.

Since Chi-Town is an hour and a half away from Milwaukee, my mind slips into “vacation mode”, where I don’t give a flying fuck on opening/escalating sets. Why? Because Chris and I will never see these hoes again. Simple as that.

Within the past week and a half, we experimented with a few game techniques and learned three valuable lessons:

  1. Go direct. Better yet, do an observational direct opener if possible. Those are the fucking best. For example, “Excuse me, I know this is going to sound weird, but I saw you from over there [point to random direction] and I thought you looked absolutely adorable in that white-and-yellow sundress and I had to say hi.

    I’ve managed to get lots of compliments, girls allowing me to continue the conversation, and a few instances where I managed to walk with a girl to lead them to an instadate venue. Well, close, but I’m working on that.

    The trick is to say it confidently, but somehow, also manage to make it sound like you don’t do this often. Like, a strangely confident shy dude. That’s the best way to describe it.

    It’s also far, far better if you personalize the opener in your own words than try and use anything canned you memorized. I don’t want to sound like a pussy, but a genuine compliment mixed in an observational direct opener works wonderfully.
  2. Instadates -> Phone number. I’ll be honest, this hasn’t occurred yet. However, if you combine the length of time I’ve gamed pre-lockdown and post-lockdown, I’d estimate it’d total five months give or take. I’ve secured a ton of flaky-ass phone numbers, but only one instadate that turned out ‘meh’.

    That isn’t to say I shouldn’t keep collecting phone numbers and pray for the best. Rather, focus on insta-dating and if the girl isn’t free, go for a number close.

    I’ve experimented with this at Woodfield Mall in Chicago. As long as you lead, girls I’ve met are willing to comply with your commands. For example, after the opener, I’d go with:

    So, what are you doing right now?

    Oh, I’m shopping for my sister/for a party/for a photoshoot.

    Cool. Let’s go.” [head cock in random direction]
  3. Lead the interaction. This is by far one of the most important lessons I’ve picked up in game. When I lead the interaction by walking in-front of her slightly, pointing where to go, asking questions in a firm, confident manner, and generally just being a man… things go well for me.

    Girls I’ve led respond positively to my advances.

    On the other hand, if I do a hesitant or canned approach, girls quickly blew me off or glared at me before walking off.

    I believe Todd answered this in one of my questions: “When you’re aggressive and start leading, you demand a response.”

Overall, Chris and I did countless approaches during day game; especially in Chicago at Woodfield Mall. While we do game in Milwaukee, it’s easy to spot a girl you already approached a few days or weeks prior. At least, in a night game setting.

We have an inside joke that our girlfriends will be Chicagoans given how carefree we are with our sets.

In any other case, I have one set to report.

It isn’t the best, but I believe JP may have an interest in it. He’ll be able to provide the next steps I’ll need to take in order to successfully instadate + number close afterward.

Approach #1: A few hours into our day game session at Woodfield Mall I ran into a soft HB 8, sporting curly brunette hair, and of course, given Illinois’ strict regulations, a face mask.

It wasn’t the most optimal approach, but during that time, I already did 4-5 sets. So I wasn’t too hard on myself to say the least.

After I opened her, I discovered she’s a model searching for a “natural” white dress her photographer requested she buy. However, even though I led the interaction, tried establishing value early on, she was mostly quiet. Was she nervous? Yes. How could I open her up? I don’t know, but it’s a question to ask JP.

Pros:

  • Did an observational direct opener. Girl was receptive.
  • Led the interaction.
  • Girl was hooked for the first few minutes.
  • Was able to walk with her. Could have potentially led to instadate.
  • Got phone number.

Cons:

  • Girl was nervous. Didn’t know what to expect.
  • Got flaky ass phone number.
  • Interaction felt awkward. Very fucking awkward.
  • Even though I walked with her. It was to places SHE was going. I felt like a girl tagging along with a guy lol
  • Didn’t get instadate.
