Day 1

My friend Tina arrives at the apartment and we're off to check out the night life. Tina is a girl I use to date a few years ago, but now, she's one of my good friends that I 'tap' into her social circle of friends. My 30 day challenge is to break that crutch and start pulling cold. Anyway, we arrive at the first bar at about 11pm. The vibe is chill, live blues music and probably more dudes than you ever want to see in one place.  I went around just socialzing with everyone. It's the start of the night and I know I have to build momentum. We blow out of there about midnight and head downtown.

2 cute girls are walking the opposite the other direction when I open with "Hey! I... love.... bedazzled..... shirts'. Looking back, I don't even know if she had a clue what I was talking about... but it opened. We chatted for a bit, I kept it illogical and was in really close. Tina tried to wing the friend, but she wasn't having any of it. Dragged way, our night continues. We head to the bar. I open a cute blonde standing at the bar. I ask her what she recommends and then busted on her for the choice. Old school but congruent with my personality. We flirt a bit, grab my drinks and plan to reinitiate later. The music is really loud at this point, there's techno booming in the next room. My voice is booming but with my hearing problem, it still makes it difficult to hear. Fk it... the night continues. Open a few seated sets, those go off so-so. Reopened hot blonde from bar line. Hugged on her for a bit, a little makeout and off she went to go back to her boyfriend sitting with his friends. ha ha ha Hey, she didn't mention him to after. A few more conversations, nothing really noteworthy. Just working on getting into the habit of going out and showing more intent.

Lessons Learned:

- I let one blowout put me in a kinda down mood for about 15 minutes. She was seated, eating but I wanted to approach. I should have focused on the fact I was approaching the cutest girls... but I got a bit hard on myself. I'm sure this will self correct in the next few weeks

- LEAD, LEAD, LEAD..  I just need to keep working on it

- Going out can be freaking exhausting, it's time to get back in shape and adjust my eating.

- Girls love me, I just need to show more intent

Day 2

I was invited to a house party. There's supposed to be quite a few girls coming so we'll see what trouble we can get into. I have to admit, I'm already a bit worn out from last night.. 30 days is going to push me to the limit , I can already tell. I realize I need to change my diet and get back to the gym regularly. 

---

The house party was much smaller than I was lead to believe, but oh well... good night to talk to friends and meet the small selection of girls. The highlight of my night was the constant leading "Hey, let's grab a drink", "Hey, let's check this out" etc.. I'm really trying to get in the habit of doing this with new people. It's a big 'ah-ha' moment for me after bootcamp. With girls I know, I'm constantly leading without thinking about it. I just always assume I have more going on and they'll want to come along for the adventure. With new people, I completely lose that certainty and find myself not willing to pull the trigger.  This is going to change, I can already feel the new pathways being formed... where it feels 'dirty' not to lead.

I'll admit it, I'm exhausted.. I rolled in about 3am, and brought home this girl I've been hooking up with now and then for the past few months. Not much 'glory' there when it's like 'Hey, we're going back to my place to listen to some music' but still an entertaining night. I rolled out of bed at 11am wondering what adventure awaits tonight.

Day 4

It felt like a ghost town last night, I hit up 3 bars and came across a total of 5 women. My interactions are getting better but I'm still playing it way to safe. I'm trying to remember the fury I felt at the least night at bootcamp.. when I get control of that, watch out!!  I've been putting a lot of hours in at work, it feels good to be pushing myself to go out on my own, it's getting easier. On one hand I feel the growth and yet, I know I'm still holding back.  Keep pushing, keep pushing.

I'm headed to a Karaoke bar tonight. My singing is so bad, the bars have to lower the drink special prices just to keep people there. No worries, I have a blast. :) I love the vibe and think this is something that I want to start doing more of during this 30 day challenge. I'm still not comfortable with the club scene, that's why I'm forcing myself to reframe my current mindset. Tomorrow night is going to be insane. I was invited to a hotel party. It's going to be a mix of swingers, BDSM and other lifestyles. If you're familar with this scene, the dominant guys basically have a run of it. This will be a great opportunity to really push the intent. So yeah, I realize I'm relying on my social circles but I'm still going to apply everything I've learned on bootcamp.

I've missed a few opportunities at work (local college I work at now and then for specialized courses) today. I had like 3 really cute chicks smile and all I mustered out was 'hey'. Ughhh... these are basically gifts. Women are wanting me to say stop them and here I go, stuck in work mode. Bootcamp is a really weird experience, especially a few weeks after the event. You start to see things in people you never noticed before.. it's almost like you have a new obligation to yourself once you realize it.

Ready to rock tonight.

It's a wakeup call I need to take better care of my body. 5 hours a night should be more than enough, but man, I'm feeling it. Heading out again tonight, it feels good to keep pushing myself.

Day 5

I need to start running around.. going to that party later on tonight. I'll do a report on Karaoke night either when I get home or tomorrow. I'm getting a bit frustrated... I'm very conscious of the fact I'm holding back. Everything girls seem to find attractive about me midway through an interaction is ideally what I need them to see upfront.  This clicked when the other night I was hugging on this girl (Day 2) and she said something to the effect of 'I can tell you really love life, don't you'. If that's the case, wtf am I entering in sets like a chode? ughhhhh  I recognize it and continually working on making adjustments. Now for the good:

- Going out every night is becoming a habit

- I'm comfortable going out alone (although I rather go with a group of friends)

- When I just let it all go, girls seem to light up around me.. now I need to transition this into pure intent

- While I'm not nearly as physical as I  know I can be, I'm MUCH more comfortable hugging on girls. In fact, *I* feel kinda creeped out when it doesn't turn physical

- I have so many weekend roadtrips planned over the next few weeks, it's sick. It's going to be great hitting up the clubs with new friends.

Day 6  "The 3some"

I feel like a total nerd, both girls just left from a night of utter pounding.. and here I am typing up my field report.  It's funny, I'm sitting here trying to focus on what just unfolded and all I can do is just freaking smile. Honestly, the girls at the end were a nice bonus but the night itself just ruled. The first time in a LONG time, I felt like the person I know myself to be... Ok, let's lay this out:

So I mentioned on Day 5 I was heading to this house party later that night. The directions got all messed up, people were screwing around trying to confirm everything was going down blah blah Fk it, I decided to do something else. I called my boy Dave and decided to drag some girls with us and we hit the club. I've been really trying to work on going solo, stop relying on the social circle and all that jazz.. but yeah, I just wanted to go out and have a good time. Dave was surprised I wanted to hit a club since it's usually not my thing. I'm really working on pushing my comfort zone.. and thought what the fk, let's have some fun.

Dave brings his girl, I drag this girl I've been hooking up with over the past 6 months or so. She's a really cool chick, into girls and well, she's a story for another time. Anyway, time to hit the club. BOOOOOMMMMMM... I'm like a freaking freight train, I've never got into state this quickly. I'm dancing away, talking gibberish with everyone around ... grabbing girls (NEVER done that before) and dragging them into the group. Leave... go find more people, drag them in.. I'm screaming... Party over here. Pulling girls (sometimes 2 at a time) to the dance floor (terrible dancer) I didn't care.. just went with it. SLOW MOTION.. it felt like I couldn't get blown out if I tried. I know I did, but I don't even remember... I just kept bouncing.. building the circle. Girls are now approaching me (NEVER happens to me), I'm literally jumping in the middle of mixed sets and the guys are just letting me hit on the girls... I did some fake lame magic trick where I had the the group put there hands in the middle, put a coin in one of their hands.. told them to close there eyes, shake their hands up and down and count to 15. Boom... I pull the girl out, make out ensures.. meanwhile the guys look like they are jerking off. They open their eyes and are now laughing as I molest the girl.. .and point to me like some cheesy mentos commercial like 'yeah, you got us'.

This goes on for awhile.. sorry it's so jumpy guys, I'm trying to remember what happened.. it flew by so fast. I literally don't remember one moment I was in my head, just doing my thing.. having a blast, being the source of good emotions. It's about 11:30, I'm starting to unwind.. started chilling with the core friends. Oh man, you should have seen their face.. one of those 'What did you do with John' expressions.. we're all laughing, having a good time. I see one of the girls I was talking to, get right in her face.. get her laughing, grab her hand and walk her out of the club. I don't remember much, it was something like 'blah blah... cool, yeah.. sko.. friends, cool... wave, txt later.. go go go '. Her friends just smiled, I walked her out. I figured I'd text my friends later if something went down. I'd like to tell you guys I did some bad ass Jeffey van move and pulled to the car.. but didn't go down that way. We made out for a bit, lost the moment.. and we went back in. I didn't even freaking care... grabbed another girl walking in, spun her around.. and just kept walking. Bammm.. booom... slow motion...

Anyway, it's about midnight, this girl is talking to the girl I brought with me. I come over.. and start screaming something... jumping up and down (yeah, I can get a bit hyper.. I'm an adventure junkie that can't get enough when I'm feeling it ) Triangle of South America.. (no clue what that means but sounded good at the time)  I grab the girls, bring them in... and made a triangle with our mouths and then that goes down. Time to go, grab their hands... a little resistance from the new girl... but slowly worked her out of the club.... back to my apt, and 3some action ensues.

I'm sure I'll read this a few weeks ago and wonder did this really go down the way I typed it.... hell....... yeah..... it did. It was freaking AWESOME.  I seem to have small moments of glory and then long stretches of total chodeness.  I have to believe the more I go out, the more I can tap into this vibe. I always say that I don't really give a fk what people say, but the truth is.. I do on some level and that's okay.. because it's getting better. Tonight, I DIDN"T GIVE A FK... I had fun... I was absolutely myself... didn't think of pickup one bit, just wanted it.. wanted to grab girls, wanted to dance, do crazy interpretive dances to some of the cheesy ass songs being played, laugh with my friends and had one of the best times after bootcamp.  Again, not to ride Nathan's jock... but the difference I'm seeing is night and day after bootcamp. Intent was something I was really missing... I can feel the difference.  So maybe this was a 1% improvement, doesn't matter... tonight I'm the #$@#$#@ man... and actually proud of myself for tackling the club tonight.

This is going to be one crazy ass journey, no doubt. Thanks for reading... looking forward to meeting up with some of you and tearing it up in your city.
