More Daygame

Posted: July 3, 2010 in Uncategorized

Last week I wrote about how fucking scary direct approach daygame is. Last week on Covent Garden I managed to approach just 3 sets over the course of 3 hours. To improve on this I set myself the goal of doing 6 approaches in 2 hours this week. If I didn’t manage it I would stay out until I had done 10 approaches as a punishment.

I only managed 3 approaches in 2 hours. Since it was getting late and I’m also doing bargame tonight, I decided I couldn’t stay and do the 10. I know dear reader. Excuses! I do take some comfort in the fact that 3 approaches in 2 hours is better than my attempt the previous week.

At the moment (and probably until I’ve made 50 – 100 direct approaches) I am only looking to deliver a direct opener, not to hook the set. It really is just a case of walking up to the girl and saying the opener (“I just had to stop you and tell you that you look gorgeous”). Despite this I am already starting to notice mistakes I’m making and realizing what is required in order to hook sets using this type of approach.

My mistakes:

1. Not smiling
2. My voice tone. It’s hard to describe this one. My voice seems to almost indicate that I’m asking permission from the girl to say the opener. The pitch and tone seems a bit submissive and just seems to subcomunicate, “I’m saying something a little bit outrageous to you. I hope it’s ok with you though”. I need my voice to be more manly and more certain. I’m sure this will come as my daygame AA lessens.

I think hooking sets well using direct approach daygame depends on creating a certain feeling in the girl. The girl has to feel that this is a spontaneous, romantic comedyesque magic moment. She has to really believe that you just suddenly noticed her, and that her beauty compelled you to stop her. In other words your voice, facial expressions and body language must make your opener appear really authentic and not canned. This is also important in bargame, but I think it’s critical to direct approach daygame.

For now I just need to work on upping the frequency and volume of my approaches. I’m going to do 3 day game sessions next week. Two will be 90 minute sessions after work, and then another 2 hour session on Saturday. I will open 12 sets in total during these sessions.

Wish me luck, and I’ll keep you updated.
