April 16 2010

I arrived at the Hilton at 7 30 pm, there I met Nathans assistances Matt, Dave. I found out that I was the only student in this programn. The bootcamp started out with Nathan introducing himself, talking about how he started, how his game evolved and where is he right now in his game. I was feeling very anxious and happy at the same time. Nathans game is pure natural game, the more he talked about game, the more I came to realize that I just new a glimpse of game. He also talked about different social interaction, how girls act in social interaction and how should men act in those interactions.

The game is about emotions, positivity and having fun.

Nathan stressed out to aim for consistency and not perfection, that if one thing is working for you, you should be able to replicated it in other areas. We then talked about where I am at in my game, what experience and sticking points ( AA & following through amongst others)I had.

Afterwards he started to explain how to approach: Be positive, smile and create sexual tension. He talked about state, how you should be expressing value to the girls, that good emotions comes from within. To get into state you can jump, hi 5, sing, dance; in other words change your physicality and your mind will follow.

After almost 2 hours of lecture we headed to the field. Walking to the bars I was feeling pumped and anxious.

As soon as we entered the first bar, I had to approach the first girl I saw; that’s the law. I ended opening a two set seating down next to the bar. It was rough, I was anxious to try all these new material, so ended up talking really fast.
Then we headed up stairs, there were not that many people there Nathan talked about the vibe that was going on, at first everyone has one drink and is talking to their friends. Its pretty much daygame but with music.
Then he told me that I had to go talk to girls and come back to them in 20 min. SO I storm downstairs and at the begginig I was just looking for an easy approach, I saw a girl at the bar opend w/ what are you drinking. The interaction went good until his husband came into set, I introduce myself to him, we talked about what cool songs I wanted the guitar men to sing, and I ended up ejecting because I was going into my head. As I was walking to the bathroom I ran into a girl and opend w/ you are adorable I just had to meet you, I am Diego who are you, she said her name, I was still feeling a little anxious, so I asked her bout the coolest club around here.. we talked alittle more but I ended up ejecting again because I just didn’t know what the fuck to say. I opened 2 more girls but I honestly do not remember what I said, they were short interaction but I could feel that the approach anxiety was fading away.

I went upstairs and Nathan told me to open a girl. I opend w/ I just had to meet you im diego( was filming the interaction) she was a ugly but I was there to show the love and to be social. I opend more sets, I was focusing on chilling back and not going all full intent like in nightclub, this was quite hard for me because I usually run game in dancefloors. Matt and Dave did some demos on how to approach.
Two blind spots that I had were, I was grabbing the girl instead of tapping her and I was not smiling enough.

One set that went well was this girl Vanessa she was from germany, I did feel that my conversation skills improved with this one, while I was talking to her dave and matt where talking to her friends. I went for the phone close but she denied me, I just kept talking until I knew that the interaction was not going anywhere.
I approach two more girls ( so much shit happen there that I do not remember it all) but the interaction didn’t lasted more than 15 sec.

I opened an HB with I think you are adorable, she was from Poland( first Poland chick Ive ever talked to) . For me that was the set that ultimately killed the approach anxiety.

Anther interaction was pulling girls from the dance floor. I did pulled a girl from the dance floor, we started to talk, I phone close her and before she left I told her to give me a kiss in the chick and she did. Awesome.

Dave showed me how to stop girls while their walking and start talking to them. That was pretty cool. We also approach two hot blond, your adorable.. im diego who are you it was fun. I got comfortable approaching girl by this time of the night.

We then headed to pure. Now in this environment I had to show more intent. Nathan new that cold approaching was my weakness so he told me to go the dance floor to do my thing( I love dancing and I am super comfortable at the dance floor). At this time I was in my head, I was mad at myself because I was ejecting the set to early. Nathan came back and told me to chill, relax; we are here to have fun and to not sweat it. While we were talking I saw this Hot girl dancing by herself so I approach, we started dancing I asked her name and were was she from and guess what she was from Colombia ( like me) and right there it just clicked. While I was dancing with her I actually started to have fun (Nathan later explained that commonalities is a big thing in pick up) we made out, she bought me beer and a shot. At one point of the interaction she asked if I smoked and I said no and then I asked her if she smoked she said no but you could tell she was just being agreeable with me, I though this was adorable so I gave her big a wet kiss on the lips. I kept dancing w/ her and asked her were was the best place to eat afterwards, she said a couple of names and I answered w/ great ok lets grab something to eat then. She was down for it.

Around 30 min before closing, I was in the headspace of student so I started to scan for Nathan, I had no idea about logistics. I got her number and told that I was going to look for my friends and that I call her later(wrong move).

I find Nathan, Matt, Dave and in a 6 set of brownies. The brownies were sitting down so Dave is in one end talking to a brownie; is at the other end talking to another brownie while Nathan is filming the interaction. At some point Matt came in, walked over the table and sat down in the middle of the brownie set. Nathan then opened one of the brownie with: have you ever seen a white penis before?
The brownie smiles and say yes, Nathan proceeded with tell me about it. This was a great demo for me, absolutely not giving a fuck and being totally unapologetic.

The night ended w/ a debrief, the Colombian girl told me that she had to drive her friend back home but apparently it was very far away so logistics fucked it all up.



April 17 2010

Today it started with some debrief from last night and then went onto day game at wholesale followed by night game.

The thing I learned today were:

Day game:
Day game is very chill back
You have your own agenda and talking to girls it’s just something that happens because you are a social man.
As you walk around you will get one set every couple of minutes.
Opening is not that hard
I did different openers:
hey which cereal/salad/ice cream do you think is the best to get me started on healthy food.
I saw you guys from over there and all I wanted to tell you guys is that you are adorable.
I only phone close one chick, I got the PC when I reengage the chick later on. I think this is key factor in daygame, you talk for a while w/ the girl then you keep shopping and then you go back. It felt more comfortable than starting a 20 min conversation in the cereal alley (yup ,I did this).
Things to improve on are being smoother in the interaction; Leading and the pC should be casual.

Night time:

First bar:
As soon as we got to the bar boom I approach the first girl I saw.
Because of day game I already had momentum going on, so talking to girls was way easier than yesterday.
It was early at night so the mood was casual.
I worked on staying in set, creating commonalities.
Talking to the HB its way better than talking to the 7s or 8s, this is because they understand game and cool knows cool, so they are way more receptive.
I was feeling comfortable, outside my head and really laidback.

A good interaction I had in this bar was these two hot girls I opened at the bar. I had a great conversation w/ them, Matt winged me w/ one of the girls. Before Matt came into set, a couple of guys started to amog me while I was talking to both girls, one of them started to shout in my ear: hey dude what kind of shampoo do you use? Hey dude your so cool talking to those cute girls. Another guy pulled my shoulder and told me to move because he wanted to buy a beer and then proceed to blow smoke in my face. All I did was tune those motherfuckers out and kept talking to the girl as if nothing was happening. This was a great reference point. We eject the set because Matt literally was at its last straw, he was really helping me but the chick he was talking too was not paying attention to him. I later reengae my girl but the mood had change and I entered with the same vibe as before, I tried to PC she denied. Later on the debrief Nathan explain that something was going on between her and her friend.


Second Bar:
The music was pumping people were dancing, perfect.
I worked on leading, taking girls to the dance floor and from the dance floor to bar.
More intent was key, saying absurd things like: have you ever seen white penis before? Or do you wanna fuck my neighbor? Is acceptable
Its better to have quality sets than 1000 sets in one night.
Got a kC and PC from a nurse that works near my campus.
Yeah never ever drink the 1 dollar beer, that shit fucked up my stomach the next day.


@ Pure
Lead Lead Lead.
18 to 20 year olds absolutely don’t know jack shit about game, they are lost at the nightclub and do not know how to handle a guy hitting on them.

There was this two set sitting down, I sat down next to the HB and started to talk to
Her, engage the fatty and lead her away to the bar so that I could have alone time with the girl. I focus too much on creating commonalities, I was leading the conversation at first and then it shift to her leading the conversation. Some random chode later came in and Nathan started to talk to the guy.
As you can see, all of rsd crew were there to help me. I ended up ejecting because I was not leading.

Day 3:

We made a game plan for myself, saw some cool video demos and all of the Austin crew gave me feedback on my game.

Overall:

I have been involved with RSD since 2008 and let me tell you guys the bootcamp is top notch and it helps you reach a deep identity level change. The bootcamp is not a magic pill, it’s more of a guide to help you achieve the life style you want;in other words , the bootcamp is like a tour guide, the tour guide will tell you how to get to the your destination, he will tell you all the information you need to get to your destination, he will even hold your hand and walk with you to the starting line; but its all up to you, to push your comfort zone and start the journey.The bootcamp had a great vibe, the instructors welcomed me with open arms, right of the bat you could tell they were cool fun guys ready to help me in any possible way. Nathan, Matt, and Dave did an amazing job. They were always there to help, to wing, to correct blind spots, they were all non-judgmental always giving me positive feedback and always being attentive of me. I remember being in a couple of sets and when one of the friends or even the fatty started cock bloke me, they would enter the set engage the friend or the fatty and help me with the interaction. While this happen the others would be recording the interaction. Recording at a bar or nightclub is fucking hard, I give kudos to this lads, when I was in set I didn’t new they were recording until the debrif.
Watching myself in an interaction really helped me with my blind spots, showed me what I was doing right and what things I can improve on; Plus Nathan broke the interaction from start to end, reinforced my strengths and told me to change small things like: do not lean in too much, show intent with kino, changing the girls emotional state by leading her around the bar and smiling.



My last three thoughts of program are:
1.No one is above the process
2.Girls are down to fuck
3. LEAD, Lead and Lead

Thanks for an amazing weekend,
Diego

My favorite from Nathan! when you have nothing to say..."so, where's the after party". :)

You'll notice things now in your everyday life that you might not have before. Or better yet, you'll use opportunites now that were Always there...you just didn't utilize them before bc.

The path has been laid, the spirit jolted, and the mind supercharged...

Have fun and great work man!
