 Whatup!

I've had a lot of guys asking in the youTube comments about tips for going out solo, and funnily enough...

I already have a solo game vid up in the Immersions program within the Evolutions product.

So, SORRRRYYY!!!  Can't go in depth here, but figured I'd give a few tips, but mostly focusing on the larger issue...

Making friends.  Haha.

Take a gander at the video below to see what I mean, and learn how to create a MASSIVE social circle.

Cool.  So to reiterate, I think the QUICKEST way to start making friends is to join a "hobby" of some sort.

Whether that be a jui jitsu course, a yoga studio, or improv classes, you can make new friends SO QUICK.

Then, you need to start looking at everything you've been learning when "picking up" as just SOCIAL SKILLS.

Utilize the same frame control, forcing the fun social vibe etc. and you can be the Ferris Bueller of your city.  (Hopefully you young kids get that reference.)

One of my fave movies.   And in Chicago YAY!

Hope you have a good weekend, and if you ARE interested in checking out the Immersion Program, where I just released a pretty bomb day game video, and tomorrow releasing another KICK ASS interview with one of my wing's, then CLICK HERE to find out more information!

 Kinda mad when I read the title.  I always go out solo and love it.

Really like the examples.

Going solo it's the best training I consider while wanting to improve on sticky points, at first I get so mad on how chicks ignore me masively, but that's precisely why it doesn't suck.

But hey, it was pretty good the topic on social circle, and the examples where awesome. This is just what I've been working on now.

Thanks

I had the same situation recently in my working environment. It's harder to connect with "chodes" because you always have to take care to not go over the top and challenge the social conditioned beliefs they have too much. Somehow I have to "downwardly" connect with them ("KING FRAME")... Lesson learned. Off to implement it!

 Great video Brad, really appreciate that you heard us all and made a video for all of us, like we wanted. Respect.

Anyway, going out solo doesnt always suck...its hard  to do it and yeah, its easier when you have cool friends, but at this point its not easy to build a great social circle. Im curently working on it, it takes time, i have no worries, it will be better.

Still, if you are a true player, cool dude, fucking pimp, then you can go out solo and pick up hot chicks. Everything is possible.

Alex called, he wants his polo back!

Really liked where you highlighted the inability to take action in general social interactions can make you look 'stand offish".  Great video!

This definitely hit home with me Brad, my social circle is my fault and I was always cold.  I created the tension and didn't take the extra step.  It was actually a bit emotional to hear you say this stuff.  This is one of my goals and I'm glad you made this video.

Really good video, even though it seems really simple. I can identify with the whole spotter issue at the gym, I've asked so many people to spot me and not even made an effort to speak to them properly or befriend them, seems a waste.

Solo is awesome. It sucks if the guy going out is a pussy. Frankly it's difficult to get great wings that go hard at this shit. Making a couple of friends at the gym or whatever is unlikely to get you a good wing where you can improve at hardcore PU skills fast. If anything, I've learned that going out with the wrong people sucks more of your energy away.

That having been said, having a solid wing is priceless. And I have found some of the best wings by going out solo at the club.

 I love how old concepts crop up like this.

I think I remember some other product in some other company mentioning making friends and being social with people at the bar, and places in the local area.

Duh, it only makes sense that these principles get applied in... real social dynamics. It's always a pain in the ass when I realize that I'm being such a tactician, that this is some sort of isolated part of my character that I miss the fact that this is meant to be applied in all aspects of m day-to-day.

Great epic info, Brad.

Gracias.

 My game improved tenfold the other night because as I was building momentum I approached guys just as much as girls. I had never done that as much and it really helped me to convince my brain that guys really are NO THREAT AT ALL and that it's easy--RIDICULOUSLY EASY--to have a good rapport with them. I was just saying dumb things like "Hey man I just bought a dog today." Then, later in the night I had reduced my reaction time to approaching mixed sets to zero, whereas on other nights I'd usually still approach mixed sets, but only after some hemming and hawing and generally not feeling like doing it because I'd knew it'd be more of a "bumpy landing," and because of this the interaction wouldn't go as well.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about incorporating the skills I've learned from a year in the game into my life in general, so I connected more with this video than any other video on RSDN in a while. I'm a musician and have been making a point of approaching musicians after shows I attend to try to get into some new circles here in NYC. I've already made a bunch of good connections, but approaching them often gives me more anxiety than approaching a hot girl at a good club, which at this point gives me no anxiety. It's funny how the skill isn't always transferable. Still, I don't even want to think about where I'd be without learning cold approach!

 I think RSD should do a few more social circle videos. Papa's awesome article www.rsdnation.com/papa/blog/building-social-circle-hot-girls is a big help.
Also Madison did an audio-only video about this a while back but I can't find it anymore.

As a hardcase and a long time lone wolf, learning how to build and maintain 
a social circle has been difficult.
Being a lone wolf is very, very bad. Girls don't like lone wolves.

Perhaps that should be the first thing on the checklist before learning game.
If you don't have friends or a social circle, fix that first.

I just put this into practice.
I am writing this after a night out.
I got several numbers of cool guys and cute girls.
Having a party tomorrow night. 
Even got invited to join them for cross training later this month.
I feel quite different and much happier.

Thanks Brad!

Brad your videos are the best videos on this website IMO. I love the free tour content of Tyler and Jeffy but there's something about your videos that make it so easy to understand. Thanks Brutha!

I go out solo ninety percent of the time but have found it's much easier to get in state with a wing. Limiting cold approach to women could be the source of a small social circle.

Careful not to throw out the baby with the bath water. =) Solo may suck for some, but the fact that it may suck is not the fact that you go out solo. Ponder dat.

Solo is the ultimate training to be self-sufficient in self-amusement, state, and freedom from outcome. I've been out solo for a long time and this weekend I went out with a group of friends I haven't seen in a long time. IT'S A JOKE how easy it is to be with others.

Which leads one to wonder: what is it that you really want? To not feel lonely or to cultivate a bad-ass presence even when alone??

Two VERY different topics for two VERY different audiences.

Going out alone does kind of suck, but going out with dudes that are complete chodes is, in my opinion, even worse. My friends are all chodes and every time I go to a bar/club with them they instinctually find the darkest corner in the place and form an impenetrable chode crystal. Opening is outside of their realities, and even if I bring a chick back to the crystal, which I had to fight through to leave, they invariably scare her away with their chodery. I've turned to going out solo and even though it can be a little awkward, especially when I run in to people I know, its something you just got to commit to and push through if you don't have a wing.
