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”.

Audio recording here:

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.

Audio recording here:

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.

04/26/21 – The BF Issue

On 04/26/21, Monday, I decided to hit up UWM since the weather was finally improving in Milwaukee. While I only managed to do a single set, I’ve come across new territory that I’m interested in learning: Handling highly receptive girls with boyfriends. Let’s be honest, gentlemen, lots of girls we approach will have a genuine boyfriend. I personally don’t hit on married chicks, but a girl with a boyfriend is fair game to me.

This report will log my interaction with Olivia, the German/Puerto Rican girl I ran game on at UWM’s Student Union building.

Synopsis: After chilling around UWM’s Student Union building, I ran into Olivia; late 20s; half German / half Puerto Rican; chill af; and who strikingly resembles a young Rose McGowan. We chatted for a while. Like, faaaaar longer than I anticipated. I’d peg her as one of those girls you just click with. There’s no explanation why, but if you’re in the game long enough, you meet a girl where times flies like air and you forget it even exists.

Overall, as you’ll see in the audio recording section, I spent over an hour with her; despite the fact I knew she had a boyfriend.

At the end, I tried number closing Olivia, but she warned me she has an incredibly jealous Puerto Rican boyfriend. I teased her by saying I’ll send her a few kissy face emojis and hearts, cuz, you know, we’re friends and that’s what friends do. She said, “Noooooo!” before asking if I had Snapchat.

I said I didn’t and told her I preferred number closing since it’s far more personal. You know how it is nowadays, guys, girls hand out social media like it’s candy.

We couldn’t come to a compromise. It was so bittersweet. Like, I feel like I’ll see her again at UWM, but I only have a month left in Milwaukee before I bounce to Missouri.

After speaking with u/ethicalpua, he offered a few solutions that I’ll post verbatim:

“Download Snapchat lol. You don’t have to do anything on there or participate at all but it’s the preferred medium for girls with SOs (and you can just act like you don’t have it for reg girls(set it so it can’t see your contacts))

Other option would’ve been to tell her to take your # and save you in her phone as Jessica and to hit you up when she’s not around.”

What I Did Right:

The Power of Now: I was incredibly present during my set with Olivia. The trick, I realized, is to practice inner game in the morning and random intervals throughout the day. Once you’re at your game session, switch your mindset to outer game. Your inner game training will be operating from your subconscious if you’ve trained that muscle enough.

This is mainly a personal side note, but I discovered listening to the silence after noise (ie. the brief silence after a car passes by, spaces between conversation, etc) is what really got me in the moment.

Turning Sexual Intent On & Off: I calibrated projecting sexual intent like a knob with Olivia. When I saw she grew uncomfortable when I projected too much sexual intent, I toned it down. If I felt like I needed to sexualize the set a bit more, I’d adjust the knob so she’s aware subconsciously that I want to fuck her. Incredibly proud of this one.

Setting the Bar Low: I learned this from Julian Blanc’s video, “How To Draw State From Within: How To Be Confident In Any Social Situation!“. He states that the most charismatic people have the lowest bar when it comes to what they’re going to say to anyone. Meanwhile, the most needy, try-hard people have the highest bar (ie. “Oh no, this is the wrong word!”, “I don’t want to offend them if I say that!”, or trying to be too sophisticated/fit into what the other person wants to hear).

When gaming Olivia, I said whatever came to mind. I didn’t focus on verbally trying to impress her. I was almost filterless.

Of course, I subconsciously ran good game by DHVing myself, having her qualify, etc.

Sticking Points:

Didn’t Have Snapchat For Girls With BFs: This is my fault since I don’t like social media. It’s a useless time sinker that never interested me. However, the boys on WhatsApp are right. It’s good to use for girls with boyfriends since the messages self-deletes after an allotted amount of time.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Learn BF Destroyers: God knows I should commit to learning group dynamics vs learning BF destroyers by Mystery. I’m a single-minded individual, so I’ll have to choose which concept to learn first. As is, I think I can work with girls with BFs if I stay in set long enough, I may re-focus my energies to group dynamics.

Comments: Got Snapchat handled. Time to learn BF destroyers.

Date #1 – 04/20/21 – The Horror Movie Girl

On 04/20/21, Tuesday, I decided to meet up with Andy, aka the Horror Movie Girl, at 11:30 during my lunch break. We hit up Stone Creek Coffee and overall, our interaction lasted 1 1/2 hours. Of course, I usually pop up at the date locale 15-20 minutes before my girl arrives. Why? It’s a perfect opportunity to practice your inner game (ie. utilizing the power of now, doing cool or checking out random shit in the moment so your brain doesn’t try self-sabotaging, etc) so you’re mentally prepared for the set.

In all honesty, I think it’s a big reason why I performed so well with Andy.

I had a calm, cool demeanor. I spoke to her in a slow, meaningful tone. I listened to every word she said and responded appropriately based on her response.

With prior experience – and a damn good learning lesson – with Perrine, I ran far better game with Andy.

While I wasn’t able to escalate due to the time constraint (being at lunch), I was able to make her invest and open up within the allotted time I spent with her.

It was a pretty traditional date, to be honest.

If I had to make a list of what I did right with Andy, it’d be:

  1. Nonverbally Projecting Sexual Intent (As A Grounded Man): By far the biggest success of the date. My tone radiated sexual intent, and I constantly spoke in a slow, cool tone. I didn’t worry about looking good, but instead focused on doing the right things at the right time in the right way.
  2. No Rush: I knew I was inherently higher value than Andy. I was incredibly chill since our date location was less than 10 minutes away from my apartment, so it wasn’t really an investment. She portrayed herself as this shy girl who didn’t know what she wanted to do in life. I was this confident, well-established guy who already has his dream career.

    What did I have to prove to her?

04/17/21 – Near Pulls

On Saturday, 04/17/21, I ventured off to Chicago, but this time decided to wing with a newbie PUA named Anton. He’s not very experienced, a great guy to chat with overall, but someone I wouldn’t wing with on a regular basis. In a matter of fact, I’d ping him as a time waster. Yeah, I liked hanging out with him. But he kept talking… and talking… and talking…

He was clearly a one-off deal.

In any other case, I did manage to land an awesome set on Saturday. This report will log the interaction, but due to the sheer length of the audio recording, nothing will be uploaded onto this FR.

Approach #1The Boston Newcomer

Synopsis: At the end of our game session, I ran into this super cute, librarian looking girl. She was from Boston and recently moved into Chicago 4-5 days ago. She was receptive since I was this confident, sexy Asian guy who approached her right off the street.

She told me she was exploring the city and I asked if she ever visited Millennium Park yet. Lucky for me, she heard all about it, but never visited the Chicago landmark… until I offered to show her, that is.

While at Millennium, we snapped a few photos of us, before I ran a bit of value based game, and bounced her to a Starbucks.

From there, I started putting my foot off the gas pedal and letting her do a bit more work. I mean, she was clearly invested, mostly due to the fact I bounced her to two venues — and I was successfully implanting a “we” narrative in her head.

At this point of the set, I admit, I was a bit out of it due to Anton’s lack of experience and (slightly) negative vibe. I felt I wasted alot of time hanging out with him today instead of actually putting in work. This fucked with my game, but not too much. I was lucky to bounce back in and out of state with Emily (the girl from Boston) and consequently, kept her intrigued.

After Starbucks, I hinted there’s this “awesome bar that fits your vibe,” and dropped it. While we walked, I suggested we head toward the Riverwalk to catch a nice look at the Chicago River. Lo and behold, we coincidentally passed Emerald Loop, the Irish Bar I told her about.

From here on out, I absolutely kill it with Emily.

The waitress sat us down at this nice, comfy location hidden away in a corner of Emerald Loop. After a little bit of comfort talk, I switched the conversation to a more sexual undertone. At first, I kinda wanted to keep her guessing. Did I really like her? Or did I not? I wanted to practice my kino, but I needed social capital first. So I had her qualify + used compliance tests to build up my value.

I began touching her upper back, before slowly caressing her legs. She was physically neutral, but responding to me positively.

Of course, not everything went according to plan. This is where I self-sabotage so fuckin’ hard I feel like an absolute idiot.

Emily asked if I had a girlfriend or was dating someone. I have no idea why, but I felt like I’d DHV myself by stating I dated this French girl not too long ago. Been texting on and off. And she thought Perrine – the French girl – was my girlfriend.

I knew I made such a massive mistake. Worse yet, I kept mentioning her multiple times throughout the set.

Next time, I’m going to say I’m single, but came out of a relationship a few months ago. That, or simply just state I’m single for the time being.

I don’t want to look like a newbie who doesn’t have experience, but I also don’t want to come off as this cheating fuckboy which scares off potential notches.

Nevertheless, once we left Emerald Loop, I borrowed a line from u/fastlife15 and said, “Emily, be a lady and take my hand,” in which she complied and took my hand. We held hands and/or she wrapped her arm around me while we walked and talked.

During the final stretch of the pickup, I led a ton. “Go here, go there, let me see this, let me see that.” Just tons of leading. I felt incredibly proud by how entitled I felt after spending, like, 3 hours with Emily lol

After taking a stroll at the Riverwalk, I decided to walk Emily back to her apartment. This is where I fucked up.

I’m a lightweight when it comes to alcohol lol, even after a single Guinness. While I wasn’t buzzed, my bladder was going into overdrive. I had to piss like a Russian racehorse. When we were a block away from Emily’s apartment, I figured I’d use the genuine excuse, “Hey, I have to use the restroom. Mind if I use yours?”

It served as a way to empty my bladder + close to her place.

She said she had a roommate and didn’t want to leave a bad first impression with her. I knew if I ran better game – namely, didn’t mention the girl I dated – that would pose less of an issue. Nevertheless, if I had to re-do that scene again, I’d spike her BT hella high before saying, “Oh my God, I’m having waaaaay too much fun right now. Let’s continue this at your place.”

Unfortunately, I didn’t.

At the end, I snagged Emily’s number and now we’re texting back and forth.

What I Do Right:

Lead, Lead, Lead: I’ve never led a girl so much in my pickup career lol. I’m proud I moved her around a ton and ran a ton of compliance tests to examine how invested she is in the set.

Hit New Territory: Most of the time, I’m able to do an instadate or simply have dates. This is the closest I’ve ever gotten to landing a same-day-lay. I pushed the set as far as I possibly could, even if I didn’t feel like it.

Sticking Points:

Never, Ever Bring Up Girls You’ve Dated In The Past: This is pure self-sabotage. I felt like if I said I was single, I’d be too low value. Yet, I wanted to DHV myself as high as I could without coming off as a fuckboy. So, I went the route of, “I’ve dated someone not long ago and we still text.”

Wasn’t In The Best Mood Starting Off: My mood shouldn’t be reliant on a single man. Anton, while a cool guy overall, isn’t great for running game with. I either run solo or with a guy serious about game. Not only that, but Anton has a few inner game issues that radiate slight negativity. It can def effect my mood.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Never, Ever Bring Up Girls You’ve Dated In The Past: Title says all.

Run Solo and Keep Present In The Moment: If u/Part2Pete isn’t around, I think it’s best if I run solo. Most of my game career has been gaming by myself in all sorts of venues. A big reason why guys prefer a wing is because they offer a form of “sound board” and keep their social momentum up. After discovering The Power of Now, this can be rectified by being present in the moment, and enjoying yourself without ever getting into your head.

Comments: I’m clearly improving and I’m damn proud of it. Keep on truckin’, son.

04/06/21 – Focus Outward + Clear Mind + Sleep Deprivation

Guys, I found how to be permanently present in the moment: Getting 4 hours of sleep a night. Just kidding – yet, not really. It’s weird, but lots of my great sets out infield happened when I’m sleep deprived. If I had to guesstimate, I think it’s because you’re operating entirely on instinct without that pesky thing called intruding/negative thoughts cockblocking you at every turn. In other words, you literally don’t have the brainpower to cockblock yourself; so you roll with what you know.

With that in mind, I decided to hit up UWM after a week after Spring Break. The weather was phenomenal for Milwaukee (73F) and I simply couldn’t pass the opportunity.

Overall, I managed to score 4 approaches, but this report will log two of them.

Approach #1The SJW Art Student

Synopsis: After an approach or two outside of the Student Union building, I ran into this cute, 18 year old art major student who is on her second semester of college. She was inherently quiet, probably nervous since she hasn’t been approached before. I tried my best to get her to invest by utilizing push-pulls, qualifiers, etc. She invested only a tiny bit, hooked a few times, but not enough to net a solid number.

It felt weird since I thought my verbals were on point.

Going off experience, I’d bet it’s due to her age. She isn’t socially skilled enough to handle a sexy, confident Asian dude who knows what the fucks up.

What I Did Right:

Ran Solid Game: At least in my opinion I did. I utilized a good mix of value/comfort, but since she was 18 years old, living with her parents, I doubt she knew how to handle the situation.

The Power of Now: Looking back, I’d always wonder how to get into state. It’s simply due to being present in the current moment. No daydreaming. No planning ahead. Just truly being there. Me and the girl. That’s how I landed my best sets.

Sticking Points:

Weak Leading: I shoulda just taken my girl to the coffee shop even if it was closed. Any sort of leading would have elicited further investment that could have net me a solid phone number. Remember, verbals alone don’t decide the outcome of the set; but rather internal factors such as your subcomms, leading, decisiveness, etc. In this situation, it’d be highly beneficial if I simply lead the girl – shit, even around campus for a casual walk.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Lead, Lead, Lead: As Fast Life states, leading and showing that you’re a man who is willing to be adventurous despite circumstances telling you otherwise, is a massive advantage compared to the average dude. Even if my logistics are fucked, it’s best to lead the girl around to closed coffee shops than to stay stationary in one spot.

Comments: 18 year old girls can be the flakiest, yet most rewarding sets ever.

Approach #2The Horror Film Girl

Synopsis: At the end of my game session, I ran into this brunette with a pixie haircut. Cute, sporting a tattoo on her neck and fingers. Very hipster-ish mixed in with a new age look. I didn’t expect my open to go as well as it did, but I opened my girl’s dog instead of rolling with a traditional direct friendly open.

As anticipated, she was neutral, but it wasn’t long before we got into deeper topics.

At the end, she gave me her phone number, but since I wasn’t Man-to-Woman enough, I bet I’ve been friend-zoned or she’s hiding her interest away until she gets to know me as a person. Nevertheless, I’m going to keep a good vibe on this girl.

What I Did Right:

Going More Indirect: As my game skillset increases, I find it more viable to run a more indirect style of game and make it work. As long as it’s congruent with how I’m feeling and inherently know I can turn it into a Man-to-Woman direction, I can make it work.

Sticking Points:

Lying: I made a bullshit story up of how I attend the university. This was totally off reflexes, but looking back, I can fosure say it was entitlement issues. She wasn’t a middle-high class girl, but moreso her tattoos kinda shook me. Most girls I engage are normal college students who I’ve dealt with hundreds of times before. This one, however, was a bit unique given her flair.

Not Man-to-Woman: Self-explanatory. Since I’m unfamiliar going indirect (ie. opening the dog), I wasn’t sure how to approach the situation so I mostly played it safe. If I had to re-do the scenario again, I could have easily let her “win me over” by her interests and/or subtly inserted a premise-y frame.

What I’ll Do Next Time:

Treat Her Like Any UWM Student: I’ve ran game on dozens – if not hundreds – of UWM students. They’re unique yes, but nothing special game-wise. It’s the same time tested formula: Open -> Insert premise -> Have her qualify -> Try and lead her around/make a narrative in her head -> Close.

Comments: This is interesting. I made up total BS why I’m at the college and it still worked out in my favor. She must simply be into me.
