Hitting the streets

Posted: February 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

I’ve got a big blog post in the works explaining what I’ve been up to in the past 3 months (it involves lots of sex) and what I’ve learned in my first year in the game. Instead of waiting around to finish that (it’s going to be a bit of a behemoth) I decided to jump straight in with a field report.

Last week I opened a total of five sets. Although this doesn’t seem like many (it isn’t given the 8+ hours of field time it took to clock up that many approaches), for me it isn’t bad at all. I did direct day game off and on all throughout most of December and Janurary. I must have spent 40 hours in the field in that time, yet clocked up something like half a dozen approaches. That works out at around 6.5 hours per approach. Back then most sessions would end with me returning home without doing any sets.

In the past week I managed to hit a goal: make an approach within 30 mins of arriving at the sarging location. My other goal was to do 10 approaches in a week, I obviously fell short of that.

Here is a (from memory) transcript of the best of those 5 sets. It was with a French HB7 who I opened as she walked down a side street near Bond Street station.

Me: Excuse me… I want to say something to you, just quickly (I keep saying the just quickly bit by mistake. It’s a DLV as it implies that I think I’m taking up her valuable time. Bad frame).

She isn’t quite sure by the looks of her, and seems to be on the verge of walking off. I remain solidly rooted on the spot, a display of non neediness.

Me: I was walking down the street with my mate when I saw you go by. I thought you looked goregous, so I decided to come say hello.

HBFrench: (Looks stunned) What…

Me: I thought you looked pretty so I decided to come say hi.

She’s still not sure. I plough on.

Me: You look English but from that accent you clearly aren’t.
(Question disguised as a statement).

Her: I’m French

Me: Ok. You had me fooled you see. The face said English but the accent said something else. So what you doing in London.

Her: I live here.

Me: I guessed that, bit I mean what brought you to London.

She shrugs. She’s not all that responsive. It hasn’t hooked well but I decide to plough for practice.

Me: So you were living in France. Then one day you decided to move to London, England. What made you want to do that?

Her: I came here to study.

Me: I see you cam here to learn English.

Her: No, I’m studying graphic design (I now have the image in my mind that she was studying something to do with fashion.)

Me: That may be the subject your studying, but what I mean is, most the foreign students I meet in London may be studying a particular subject, but the main reason they came here was to learn English. Is that the same with you.

Her: No, it was just to study graphic design.

Me: Why come all the way to England to study that, instead of doing it in France? (I’m mildly challenging her, good)

Her: I wanted to do my MA.

Me: You can’t do an MA in graphic design in France?

Her: No.

Me: That’s odd. When I think of fashion I think of France. Or maybe, on second thoughts Italy. (I’m confusing graphic design with fashion design)

Her: London is for graphic design, France for fashion, and Italy for product design. (This is good, she’s starting to get a bit more chatty).

Me: So what’s product design then?

Her: Designing products… Furnature and things like that.

Me: So do you design cloathes then?

Her: No, graphic design.

Me: You’re confusing me now. I think you’re doing it on purpose (she laughs). What is it you design?

Her: Posters, book covers things like that.

Me: You seem like a very creative person.

Her: Thankyou.

Me: That’s the exact opposite of me. I’m very technical. I’ve always been drawn to technical things. I’m good at technical stuff, but can’t do arty stuff. Even Photoshop scares me. It’s good you’re creative. But we’re complete opposites. (I was babbling here, it was like I had a point to make, then I realised I didn’t).

She stares at me, with a slightly WTF look. I get nervous, make my excuses and eject.

This was my best daygame set recently. It wasn’t great by any means, but better than anything I could have done a month ago. I opened confidently, made eye contact (could have made more) and spoke slowly and clearly. It wasn’t going too badly until I started spewing out verbal diarrhea.

Stats since 1st February:
12 approaches
0 number closes
0 kiss closes
0 f closes

    First of all, I appreciate that you opened a whole blog to discuss your improvement with women. When I began, I kept a notebook to write all my experiences. I suppose a blog is even better.

    Regarding your post, you said “just quickly” and you see this as a DLV. Well, I suppose it depends on how you say it. What I try to do is just say, “I have to go in a moment”. This way instead of making her time precious, now your time is precious because you are about to go.

    How can I contact you via mail? of facebook?

    Just discovered your blog and have just finished reading through the archives. Great job so far, I’ve enjoyed reading it. Good to see another English ‘game’ blogger too. It’s harder to relate the American blogs as there seems to be a difference between British and American girls.

    You reckon you could elaborate on your online game? Many PUAs/Bloggers say it is a waste of time due to the amount of effort you put in for little reward. But, you seem to have a handle on it.

    Looking forward to next post.

      For me online game wasn’t a waste of time simply because it allowed me to start getting laid when before I wasn’t getting laid.

      I don’t think online game would have a higher time investment per lay than ‘offline’ game, but it is just a case of the time spent gaming online is in front of a computer, rather than living it up in some funky bar. To be honest though, you can send half a dozen ‘openers’ a day whilst at work. This plus a little time on msn chat when you get home a few nights a week should be enough to get you laid with a new girl every month.

      The only problem I see with online game is quality. Expect to be banging the same type of girls you could pick up in a bar, but maybe add 10lbs to their weight… Yes a lot of larger ladies online. I can see why anyone who is good at day or night game wouldn’t bother with online game, as they would be able to pick up hotter girls offline than they would online. For example, the two girls I’ve been on dates with from daygame were both waaaay hotter than any girls I’ve met via online dating.

    Hey. I stopped checking this blog… just saw you post on Krauser’s.

    6.5 hours per approach is ridiculous. Sorry to be blunt. You are avoiding working on your AA. Crack it or give it up.

    That dialogue is pretty good. I like the way you always turn the response back on her with a smart reply. That’s a good ‘push’ which a lot of men can’t do and your lateral thinking is really quite clever. The reason it doesn’t work that well as it tends to be something people do once they’ve already got some attraction and shown some value. You’ve just stopped her and started doing it too early. I’d recommend when you stop her just try and free associate and vibe the way Krauser does. Don’t think logically and ask logical, sequential questions. Make leaps of association. Once you make her laugh at this and get her invested then you can slowly start flipping the script and asking the sort of questions you’ve been asking, which will make her qualify to you.

    But pretty good really.

    Looking forward to the ‘year in game’ post.. I’m planning one as well but it’s unlikely to feature as much sex as yours 😦

      True. I got it down to about 1 approach an hour recently. Still not good enough, but a vast improvement. Got a couple of day2s and a kiss close out of my first 50 direct daygame approaches, now I just need to get my arse into gear and do 50 more, which may well be enough to get me laid.

      I keep forgetting to work on my year in game post (or this blog in general). Need to pull my finger out.
