09/21/21 – The Re-Emergence of Skill & College Campus Intel

On Tuesday, 09/21/21, I ventured off to check out Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. It has a mid-sized student populace of 9,000 and is predominantly filled with cute Latinas. Overall, it’s a venue I’d consider hitting up again during the Winter when I need to game in-doors.

Before I officially begin this report, I’ve been scouting colleges campuses within Chicago to determine if they’re viable day game venues. The upcoming section will primarily be for my personal reference, but if you’re a pickup artist unafraid of gaming college cuties, feel free to use this as intel.

  • Observations:
    – Predominantly Latinas, barely any white girls – or anything else, really.
    – Lots of 5s, 6s and 7s.
    – Girls come from mostly poor or low middle class families.
    Pro: Relatively close to my apartment.
    Pro: Great for Winter temperatures due to hallways which connect to campus buildings.

    Con: Lots of 4s, 5s and 6s. Who knew such a diverse community could birth so many ugly chicks lol
    Con: Far away from my apartment
  • Revisit?: No

Alright, with that out of the way, let’s get back to the report.

Approach #1 – The Shy, Nerdy Latina

Synopsis: At Northeastern’s library, I met this isolated cute, 22 y/o Latina HB 6 scrolling through her phone. She was def the nerdy type, who giggled a ton and was going to college to learn finances. I ran a good mix of both comfort/value game, before closing my target to a cafe nearby. Once I moved her, we chatted a bit before she had to go. So, I snagged her number and we’ve been texting back and forth.

In my opinion, this was textbook game I ran prior to moving to Missouri.

It was smooth, calculated, and I was running with a plan in my head. Of course, this isn’t to say I’m 100% back to my old self, but if I had to give a wild ass guess, I’d say I’m 60% there lol.

I def did lots of things right, but quite a few things wrong at the same time.

What I Did Right:

Lead, Lead, Lead: I felt fully entitled to the Latina and therefore, my game wasn’t stifled one bit. I inherently knew I had much higher value than my girl, nor did I feel the need to prove myself. I ran textbook game on my target and felt like I did a particularly good job leading her when applicable.

Good Mix of Comfort/Value: Since I’m still practicing on “lowering the bar” out infield, I’m able to calibrate value based game when necessary. I may have thrown in too much value at times, but I def balanced it out with comfort.

Sticking Points:

Didn’t Allow My Target To Qualify Enough: I kept talking… and talking… and talking. I don’t know why. If I had to re-do the set, I’d have the Latina qualify herself in the convo + let her contribute by asking me personal questions and getting to know me as a person.

Too High Value: I felt like I was waaaaay too confident and high value compared to the shy, nerdy Latina.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Allow My Target To Qualify Herself: JP states it’s best to let your target do all the work during instadates. As is, bringing her to the cafe cost me loads of social energy. After a while, I begin burning out. It’s best I conserve my energy for upcoming sets and let my target ask ME questions while I take a back seat.

Leveling: As stated above, I was too high value for this girl. If I leveled myself and dropped my value 1 or 2 points below, she’d feel much more relaxed.

09/18-19/21 – Welcome to Chicago

First report in Chicago.

This report will not be like any other I’ve written thus far.

Instead, it will serve as a reflection of what I’ve lost in Missouri and how I plan to regain my game skillset in Chi Town.

On Saturday, 09/18/21, I ventured off to Chicago with a friend of mine interested in watching me game, accompanied by u/Part2Pete and my old wing Chris. I knew I was rusty since I hadn’t done any approaches – let alone a serious, drawn out set – in approximately 3 weeks.

This report will log three sets which jumpstarted my game in Chi Town.

09/18/21Approach #1The Pink Hipster Girl

Synopsis: My first set, which lasted less than 30 seconds. She was sporting a pink jacket which went down to her knees. At first, she was neutral, before shifting to slightly receptive. Since I didn’t know what to say after the open, I ejected myself out of set.

What I Did Right:

Did The Approach: I’m not mad at myself for ejecting out of set prematurely. I knew I was rusty, but I had NO CHOICE but to approach. I’m proud of that.

Sticking Points:

Ejected Early Despite Growing Receptivity: Since I was running off what I knew off the top of my head, yet was being a bit too try-hard right off the open, I felt I had nothing “interesting” to say. So I left the set. This leads to my next sticking point which is…

Overgaming: I ran push-pulls, qualifiers, etc in consecutive order. So. Much. Value. Too much value based game. Zero comfort. Julian Blanc said it best: “You have to lower the bar. Realize this: Cool people – people of high value – their bar, for how good of what they have to say, is very low. People who are low value – people who are trying to impress – have a very high bar. They worry if what they’re saying isn’t good enough or will offend.”

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Lower The Bar: Don’t try and focus on value-based game concepts (ie. push-pulls, qualifiers, etc). Just say whatever comes to mind. Don’t think about it. The value based game will come with far better calibration if I just focused on lowering the bar.

Comments: First set knocked out. Thousands more to go.

09/18/21Approach #2The Twins In Pink

Synopsis: On Michigan Ave, I ran into these two girls both sporting all-pink mini skirts + tops. Both were hard HB 6s, true neutral, but since I ran a more high-energy type game, they became receptive pretty fast. In hindsight, I ran mostly solid game (ie. lowered the bar, did push-pulls, resonated fun, inner game energy), and I felt my old game skills returning prior to moving to Missouri.

At the end, I fucked up which ended the set, before they ejected since they had to grab something from their car.

What I Did Right:

Lowered The Bar: I took my advice to heart and significantly lowered the bar of what came outta my mouth. Consequently, I ran comfort + bits of value in a more calibrated way vs overgaming the girls and hoping something sticks.

Returning Game Skillset: While I don’t feel I’m remotely close to what I ran in Chicago/Milwaukee learning game from June, 2020 – May, 2021 I’m slowly but surely getting close. Shit man, this was my first day returning from my sorta-kinda hiatus of doing half assed sets in Missouri.

Sticking Points:

High Energy Game: I felt like the type of high-energy, so-called “Clown Game” as Roosh V would put it, would have worked far better at a night club. As u/fastlife15 states, it’s best if I focused on what energy I’m projecting and how I feel about myself vs focusing on trying to be an entertainer which is def what I was doing with the twins.

Careful What You Say: Oh God, oh man lol. So this is what honestly killed the set. So, the twins and I were talking about muscles and random bullshit. And I swear to God, I went, “Well, if you lifted up your skirt–” then I caught myself and was like, “Fuuuuuuck.” What I meant to convey is how I have “abs” even though I totally have a dad bod. I was giving shit to the girl that I bet she totally has six pack abs on her stomach. I came off not as creepy, but I felt a little weird saying it.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Don’t Run “Clown Game”: It’s meant exclusively for night game. Do the following instead: Project a fun, flirty vibe and sexual intent on and off -> significantly lower your verbal game bar (good for calibrating for both comfort/value) -> qualifiers

Comments: I can feel my power returning!

09/19/21Approach #1The Ukrainian Visitor

Synopsis: On Sunday, 09/19/21, I was winging with Chris and while exploring Chicago, I met this cute, soft HB 7 Ukrainian chick from Austin. She was a straight up fob from EE and only arrived to the States 2 months ago. I inherently knew I should run a far more comfort based game vs value based. It worked like a charm. All I did was actively listen and ran a few compliance tests. In hindsight, if I had to re-do the sesh, I’d re-work it as the following: Actively listen -> casually talk to her but project sexual intent + playful vibe (important) -> qualify/lead her.

So I did everything (mostly) right.

At the end, I tried instadating her, but a good venue wasn’t nearby sadly. So, I snagged her phone number and made plans to meet up with her that night.

It didn’t work out, but here’s the text exchange:

Me: “Hey Eugenia it was nice meeting you”
Her: “Nice to meet you as well, Adam)”
Me: “How’s my favorite wine sipping Ukrainian doing right now🤔”
Her: “I’ve just come to the hotel. Feeling exhausted, going to take some rest.”
Me: “Gotchu. I’m headin to Emerald Loop at 8pm why dont you come down”

No response after that.

What I Did Right:

Lowered The Bar: On Sunday’s game session, I was still focused on casually talking in a high value way, but haven’t gotten around to projecting sexual intent on and off + having a playful vibe. With that in mind, I’d say I did relatively well. She was interested at times, but I was able to read when Eugenia was losing interest. Consequently, I’d add in a push-pull or mimic a slavic accent she seemed to enjoy.

Stated Premise: I’ve always felt verbalizing intent was moreso a beginner – low intermediate method of showing a girl you’re interested in her. Right now, since I’m working up to my prior game skill, I felt this was def acceptable, especially since this girl was Eastern European. Eventually, I want to be at a stage where I don’t verbalize my interest in a girl, but let my body language show it instead.

Sticking Points:

Didn’t Know Where Good Insta Venue Was: Chris and I explored a new venue in Chicago, but we had no clue about logistics or where to pull if necessary. I should have definitely found a good coffeeshop or shit, any sort of venue that permitted casual convo. Need to scout next time.

Lack of Non-Verbals / Body Language: After I lower the bar and I’m able to permanently display “high value” comfort game, my next goal is to insert subtle premise while allowing my non-verbal body language do all the talking (no pun intended). Of course, the idea here isn’t to focus on body language, but rather mindsets (important). Once I’m in the fun, playful mindset, I can project sexual intent on and off to show my interest to girls.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Scout For Insta Venues: This was the biggest drawback of the set. I bet if I was able to instadate Eugenia, she’d be a way, way more solid girl and I’d be able to maneuver myself a bit more game-wise.

Comments: Continue practicing lower the bar, after that, focus on non-verbals via mindsets.

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.

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.

Notch #5: The Lesbian Punk Rocker Girl – As God Intended

Warning: NSFW details below

On 05/08/21, Saturday, I went on Date #2 with a girl named Cassie. She was a so-called “lesbian”, relatively attractive (if you’re into that female Commander Shepard / Ronda Rousey look), and most importantly, incredibly receptive. She’s what Mark Manson calls a ‘Fuck Yes’ girl in Models. Definitely side chick material tho, given that she’s already in a relationship with another woman.

Cassie had dyed red hair, two underbite piercings on her lower lip, with an affinity toward darker color palettes. Her appearance and dress was geared toward the metalhead subculture. The best part? She was fit. A tight ass with firm abs. Her personality was the definition of push-pull. A mix of super flirty, super touchy, but she’d pull away to gauge my reaction.

After I fucked her, it was all pull, no push.

Before I officially begin my report, I’d like to thank u/fastlife15 for extending valuable inner game advice that lead to my success with Cassie – and no doubt, my future success with women. And winging with u/Part2Pete, who I swear, is one of the handful of PUAs who knows what the fuck he’s doing.

If I hadn’t discovered r/CovertPickup during the Fall of 2020 – and most importantly, devoted myself to writing FRs and taking everyone’s advice to heart – none of this would have been possible.

Notch Report #5:

After my initial date with Cassie on 05/04/21, Tuesday, we scheduled a meet-up on Saturday. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to secure my notch during the first date due to token ASD/LMR. After day gaming with u/Part2Pete, I texted Cassie a bit before she sent me her address. It was a 25 minute drive, located in Northwest Chicago. At first, my goal was to pick up Cassie -> take her to a taco bar in Downtown Chicago -> pull her to my car. However, the cost/benefit ratio was so skewed, I figured I’d wing it and find a bar in her neighborhood.

When I picked her up, I knew Cassie lived in a substance abuse recovery house. During her late teens – early 20s, she was a hardcore party girl and rampant alcoholic. She checked herself in 10 months ago trying to turn her life around… but now had rules to follow. Unfortunately, this included strict guest regulations and curfew at midnight.

I advised we hit up a restaurant near her house, but she said she wasn’t comfortable going to a venue near her neighborhood since she recognizes so many people out and about.

Sooooo off to downtown we go.

We arrived in Downtown Chicago at 8:30PM. While walking, Cassie said she wouldn’t mind hitting up a bar, as long as I kept tabs on her. Since the taco joint I initially planned was a fair distance away, back to the trusty ‘ol Emerald Loop we went lol

In 15-20 minutes, we reserved a comfy secluded table in the bar and escaped the rain which fell upon Chicago. However, this time, I decided to heed u/fastlife15’s advice and seriously tone down my kino. We kissed a few times, sure, but it was closer to little pecks on the lips.

After a little flirty banter, I checked my phone and saw it was 9:30PM. I knew I had to close soon. And I sure as hell didn’t want a repeat of Date #1.

So, while it wasn’t ideal, I dropped a hint that I reserved a hotel nearby since I was staying in Downtown Chicago multiple days. I distinctly recall saying it was the boujiest place I’ve ever seen… but a few minutes later I said I hadn’t checked in yet. Total fuck-up if it wasn’t with Cassie.

In hindsight, I don’t think I had to sell the hotel idea so hard. If it was any other girl that wasn’t 100% sold on me, her ASD would have flared up like a cold sore lol. If I truly had entitlement, I should’ve just taken Cassie back to my car and found some dark alleyway outside of city limits.

Buuuuut it still ended up working. Even if it set my wallet back $150 + service fees );

Unfortunately, I really hadn’t reserved a hotel room. I was a liiiittle panicked since I inherently knew ordering anything off mobile apps sucked ass. Worse yet, Cassie seemed totally down to check the hotel out. After excusing myself to the restroom, I swear it took 10 minutes to reserve a hotel room. My debit card got denied twice. However, I managed to snag a room at Virgin Hotel. It was right across the street from Emerald Loop. Boujie, too.

We left Emerald Loop without finishing my beer lol. After checking in at Virgin Hotel, it truly was boujie as I imagined it to be. Red carpets, classical music, and a hella strong 1920s vibe.

Aaaaand the next part I wouldn’t advise any guy do unless you’re seriously ON with a girl…

Once we arrived at our hotel room, sex began like immediately. All our pent-up urges. All our pleasantries in public – gone. It took a minute, maybe two, before we began passionately making out. I started kissing her neck, my free hand grabbing her small ass. Cassie unzipped my pants, pulling out my cock, “Oh my God, you’re thick,” she said before engulfing my dick in her mouth.

We took off our clothes and I bent her over, inserting my cock and fucking her pussy standing up. After that, we went to doggy -> she began riding me -> doggy again. Unfortunately, I came inside her. She stood up, cleaned herself off, and we snuggled post-sex.

At the end, we left Virgin Hotel and drove back to her house. As she was about to leave, she said, “Hey, be sure to text me when you get back home. I want to know you’re safe.”

After talking with u/fastlife15, he said I put myself in an excellent position. I’m a man just outside her reach. And the inevitable break up will be far less messy if that’s what I desire.

Nevertheless, I slept with a girl with a girlfriend.

Man and woman. Like God intended.

05/02/21 – The Most DTF Girl I Met In Day Game… But Cockblocked By Her GF

On 05/02/21, Sunday, I ventured off to Chicago to wing with u/part2pete after his two week hiatus in Florida. Since Chicago was in the mid-80s again yesterday, lots of girls showed up early-mid afternoon, but downtown started dying out late afternoon. However, on Sunday I met a girl who gave me the most blatant and textbook IOIs I’ve ever seen.

The IOIs will be detailed in this FR, but will also showcase how luck can play a major role in your success in game.

Unfortunately, I did record my session, but it appears my last recording on Saturday managed to overwrite it or just didn’t save it at all. This only happened a few times, primarily when I started using my new recorder during day game. Therefore, I’m planning to buy a SIM card and hopefully this rectifies the issue.

Approach #1The Lesbian Punk Rocker Girl

Synopsis: When Pete and I walked on the sidewalk adjacent to Millennium Park, I ran into this punk rock girl sporting a retro 1950s dress, red highlighted hair, and two underbite piercings on her lower lip. She was a hard HB 6, possibly a 7 depending on your interests, and true neutral… for a little bit.

Cassie – the lesbian punk rock girl – was a lesbian who got stood up by her “butch” GF by 30 or so minutes.

Once I started running game, her switch from neutral to receptive was hella fast. I threw a proper mix of value / comfort, and she ate it up. After spotting a Starbucks near us, Cassie told me her girlfriend was late, before I said, “Oh cool, that’s why I’m here. You didn’t come to downtown for nothin’,” and following it up with, “Let’s get coffee,” in the most fuckin’ chill, blasé tone ever.

I was incredibly proud of how I started the instadate. It felt so seamless. So easy.

Once we order our coffee, I immediately began leading the interaction and sat her outside. This is where the fun begins.

From here on out, the set was pure flirty banter + bits of comfort. During our convo, I saw Cassie play with her hair, position herself toward me as we played “footsie”, and as a compliance test, I wrapped my hands around her hips, before she leaned in. The funny part? That wasn’t the biggest IOI. At the tail end of our interaction, I said, “See, maybe it’s fate, now you’ve got this cute Asian boy to hang out with.”

Her response? “Yeah, I met this really, really cute Asian boy today.”


My mind started panicking. Shit, I didn’t reserve a hotel room, nor did I see any foreseeable way to pull Cassie right then and there. I knew I had to close, but my mind was drawing blanks. Looking back, maaaaybe I should car closed her? It was tough scenario.

At the end of the set, I decided to try and lead her toward a non-populated area of downtown, preferably an alleyway, before her phone buzzed.

It was her girlfriend. She was arriving in 20 mins via train.

She sighed and said she had to go, before I snagged her number. Of course, I tried meeting up with her later on tonight, but she’s apart of this Alcoholics Anonymous group. Real hard party girl a few years back. So that didn’t pan out as planned.

Sticking Points:

Shocked By Cassie Projecting Hard Sexual Intent + IOIs: Most girls I approach aren’t hella DTF like Cassie. I’ve never met a girl who was ready to get pulled right then and there after 30 mins. The situ came to me as a shock, despite the fact it shouldn’t be. For a little I froze, possibly self-sabotaged somehow (hence why she didn’t want to ditch her GF), before running headfirst with no plan.

What I Did Right:

Operated Despite No Plan: I didn’t know what to do, but I sure as hell wasn’t about to eject out of a picture perfect notch situation. Fate was on my side: Cassie had relationship issues with her girlfriend, never been with a boy before (bet that’s BS), and I was high-value af in her eyes.

Super Casual Instadate Close: Since I felt so entitled to Cassie, my instadate close was perfect. No hesitation. No doubt. Just “let’s go,” and that’s it.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Have A Plan For All Situations: I don’t want to spend oodles of $$$ on hotel rooms incase I pull a girl. Yet, I don’t want to re-do the Cassie scenario and hope for the best. Would my car work? Yes, but my windows need to be tinted big time. An isolated alleyway? Possibly, but Chicago has surveillance all over the fuckin’ place. Shouldn’t matter though.

Comments: Don’t be surprised, brutha. Girls are into high-value men. Be mentally prepared if this happens again.

05/01/21 – My Lack of Entitlement With 8s

On 05/01/21, Saturday, I ventured off to Chicago once again to run my usual game session. It was incredibly warm in Chicago, mid-80s, and lots of hotties decided to hit up the Windy City in droves. It was fuckin’ beautiful. So many options, and yet, I was faced with a sticking point that’s been haunting me for months now – ever since I began learning game on June, 2019: Entitlement issues with 8s.

Don’t get me wrong, I did lots of approaches, pushed the set as far as I possibly could, but I was too try hard.

I over-gamed all three consecutive 8s I met in Chicago.

However, the 2nd 8, Presley, began texting me back which I found interesting. I will keep up the lead and see if I can net a positive outcome.

This report will log and contain 2/3 recordings with the 8s I met in Chicago.

Approach #1The Alabama 8

Synopsis: I first ran into Jeanie, a native Alabaman who moved into Chicago a few weeks ago, at u/part2pete and I’s alternate day game venue we hit when Michigan Ave’s too populated with PUAs. She was neutral and about to eject out of set, but stayed due to my persistence. At first, I ran pretty solid game on her, but as time went on, I made a few mistakes I shouldn’t have. Like, for example, saying so many stereotypes about Southern people; which she clearly disliked. Yet I persisted anyway.

At the end, I tried closing her out, but she wasn’t interested.

Sticking Points:

Obvious Instadate Close: I was disappointed how I tried instadate closing her. I distinctly recall being in my head, tryna think of the nearest date location, before I found one. I literally had her stop, said “We’ll have coffee for just five mins,” while I shoulda treated it hella casual, “Oh, there’s coffee over there let’s get some.”

Lack of Entitlement: It’s a rare occasion you’re able to meet and game 8s, 9s and 10s as a day gamer. I don’t know where these girls hide during day time. It’s like finding a rare gem, but trying so hard to attain it since they’re relatively uncommon out and about. Of course, given that it’s Summer, I’d imagine more and more of ’em will be appearing on the streets of Chicago.

It doesn’t matter, though.

Even though 8s, 9s and 10s are rare – you must treat them like they’re all of the place. Like I’m dating 10 of them right now. Hell, I’ve got a few on speed dial.

What I Did Right:

Persistence: Even after Jeanie was about to leave, I persisted and tried opening her again. It worked like a charm and I was able to gather precious reference experience with 8s so I can learn next time.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Game More 8s: Easy as that. With Summer on the horizon, I anticipate far more 8s, 9s, and 10s showing themselves in Chicago. I will make it a point to visit Chi Town once or twice a month (from May-October) in Springfield, MO.

Comments: Remember what u/fastlife15 said, “She goes to school in Alabama (low value frame anywhere else), she’s visiting Chicago (probs an inspirational thing, hoping she has enough value for the big city), she’s in college (her reference experiences irt her value are all in that environment vs the city). You roll in smooth, confident–she probs felt like your value was way higher than hers. Just gotta try it bro–only keep teasing it if she’s flat, blase, or spikes on those teases, etc. Otherwise qualify her on it — “You know, you’re actually pretty cool for being from Alabama, etc”.

Approach #2The Michigan 8

Synopsis: After strolling along, I met this isolated girl from Michigan chilling by herself. I decided to go with the rare direct open, since I didn’t observe anything unique she wore or did anything worth mentioning. She was neutral, leaning receptive, but wasn’t fully bought in yet. A mistake – or possibly the Game showing me a sticking point of mine – I made was twofold:

Over-Gaming: My target, Presley, was wearing sunglasses, so I couldn’t tell if she was a 7 or 8. After she lifted them up, she was def an 8 that I started falling for. Consequently, with my game knowledge I knew, I tried throwing the book at her (overgaming) without giving Presley any time to invest. She could feel my try-hardness and began shutting down. I knew I fucked up, so I decided to eject after failing to lead her. Since that didn’t work and I’d feel needy if I stayed in set, I snagged her number.

Interestingly enough, she sent me a response 20 minutes after my initial text. Here’s what I have so far:

Me: “Hey Presley it was nice meeting you”
Her: “Nice meeting you too!”
Me: “Officially the chillest girl I met in Chi Town”
Me: “Have to catch up over a cup of coffee next time I hit up Chicago”
Her: “I’ll be here haha”

That’s all I have so far.

Sticking Points:

Read ‘Synopsis’ section.

What I Did Right:

Closed Despite Not Wanting To Fuck Up: It’s a win nevertheless. If I hadn’t snagged her # and texted her, I don’t know what the outcome would have been.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Read ‘What I’ll Do Next Time’ on The Alabama Girl.

Comments: N/A.

Approach #3The Nursing Students

Synopsis: After a 4 hour game session, I was about to leave Chicago and head back to Milwaukee… but god damn, I couldn’t ignore the two hotties snapping pics of themselves at the Bean. I did an observational opener of, “Instagram perfect right there!” before they both laughed, requested I take a pic (in which I said it’ll be $10 as a flirty tease), before I started gaming both of them.

Interestingly enough, my initial target was a baby-faced 8, but for some inexplicable reason, I switched my target to the ‘mother hen’, who I felt more attracted to.

She also was an 8 and kinda looked like a young Gwyneth Paltrow.

I think it’s her unique beauty which did me in.

Anyway, I was waaaay more in-tune with my game + calibrated to both of them properly at the right intervals. However, my new target was engaged to her friend’s brother. So yeah, maaaaad ASD if anything happened. Odds weren’t lookin’ good based on that alone.

I ejected after my target had to hit the restroom and went back home.

Sticking Points:

Should Have Lead / Closed to Starbucks: A big reason why I didn’t want to lead and try to instadate both of them is simply due to the fact the odds of closing just wasn’t good. I mean, my target was engaged to her friend’s brother. Can’t get any worse than that. However, it still wouldn’t hurt to try despite the odds.

What I Did Right:

Momentum: With every 8 I gamed, my interactions started improving, becoming more calibrated, etc. I’m able to get fast reference experience thanks to the Summer and capitalize on it.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Read ‘What I’ll Do Next Time’ on The Alabama Girl.

Comments: I think this was a lost cause no matter how solid my game was. Target was engaged and therefore, mad ASD with her friend. Friend had ADD big time.
