Hey – wanted to check in and update.
I know I haven’t posted in a while… Wish I had a better reason but work has just picked up incredibly and I’ve had to really busy my ass this week (perhaps a consequence of spending too much time roaming the streets for chicks the week(s) before?).
I have done up through the second quntile (so 12 total days). Granted, the last time I went out was something like a week ago (lame!)…. I went to go out today and did find it really difficult to get the motivation to approach (especially since I have some promising prospects lined up from last week!)… also I had to get back to the office. I think this is the first time I went out, did an approach, but then had to scratch the day due to not having approached enough after a certain amount of time / having to get back…. Certainly contrasts with the glory days when I started and just disregarded all other obligations…
I have an idea.. To block off a certain day and try to hit 30 approaches. I know I can do it if I just spend enough time (maybe 6ish hrs of actual street time?). The short 7-10 approaches I’ve been doing recently don’t seem to reach critical mass… I hope doing a marathon will really get me into that activation energy. Also, will be good to catch up! Will have to think about when!
Another point. A reader (thanks btw) sent in an article written by a girl about how nice guys are “emitonal sluts” and how unattractive it is. I enjoyed the article and it made a lot of sense, check it out: http://totalfratmove.com/812001.
I am still 100% in favor of it being a numbers game. But, certainly there must be ways to tweak conversion (just like any good experiment)! In this vein, I wonder if I am being too much of a “nice guy”. Maybe my direct/compliment conversation starter comes across more as pandering or flattery or “please like me” (or, rather, “please don’t reject me… it keeps on happening and it sucks”).
I don’t really like the idea of going indirect for all the aforementioned reasons. One suggestion readers have brought forth is to be more specific with my compliments. Maybe I’ll experiment with that!
Expect more posts and expect more action. Things are getting more exciting as I’m meeting great girls and having some promising prospects! I’m not even half way through yet. and I will get through 30 days.
