Hey all!  Tried this before but wasn't really dedicated.  I'm in this for real now.  Been going out a lot.

This journal is to track my progress and to offer value to other community members who might be at a similar level. 

I consider myself pretty much beginner.  I can open pretty much any set and be a cool social guy; but, there's another level I need to get to.  It's so close, I can feel it.    

This is the ascent into player lifestyle.



Update
4/2/12

Just feel like updating this first post real quick.  Seems like I've been at this for awhile.  The transformation I've gone through is palpable.  I'm not great at this yet, but I am living the player lifestyle now.  

If you read Mastery, George Leonard talks about the progression of a skill set.  It's not linear.  You spend most of your time  on plateaus, and then every once in awhile, you experience a spurt of growth.  This journal has been a case study in that theory.  It started out with me learning to open, then getting that dialed.  Then what?  Maybe hold the set.  It took a long time to get to the point of consistent closing, and I'm still not great at it, but this journal does get more interesting starting around page 29 or so.  The reason I updated this is because of the growth spurt I went through around that time.

I'm not the same person as I was when I started writing these.  My internal dialogue is much more positive.  My confidence is 10X that.  I'm much more calm.  The results speak for themselves in my day to day interactions with people in general.

What a great journey it is.  Making yourself a better person by getting laid more.  HAHAHAHA.  LIFE IS FUCKING GREAT.

Houseparty at my new place. Pretty decent socializing. Then we head out to the bars. Great night for being unstifled and letting loose. Met one really cute girl from Russia. Talked for a couple minutes, and I felt the vibe shift from- who is this guy, to hook, this guy is cool. Then I bailed. Wtf

Lesson: stay in set.

Kinda hung over, head out to a punk show. There is almost no one there. I meet one girl who is the girlfriend of the lead singer of the band. Not much else.

Head out to Irish bar by myself. Meet two cute blonde cougars- J and A.  Meet some really boring girl.

Lesson: Should have led boring girl around. She was at the bar by herself. Should have pushed it hard.

Irish bar for pool. Meet R, who has dark curly hair. Also meet Ab, brunette with bangs. I told her to let me wear her cool sunglasses. She was into me. Her friend came up and was touching me all over. Not sure if she was trying to test or tool or what. Grabbed her back, and she grabbed me more. Cool.

Get pulled over on the way home for not having a license plate light. Sweet talk female cop, make her laugh. Get off with a warning.

Side note: I was dressed like shit, and still wearing the shirt I worked out in. Stunk. Irrelevant.

Side note lesson: approach no matter what you look like. Cause it don’t matter as long as you’re internally centered.

Lesson: Wherever I go, people like me and think I’m a fun cool guy.

Solo night.

Go out to Irish bar again. It’s supposedly a fear and loathing party, but no one is there. And I dressed like Johnny Depp.

Talked to everyone who was there. Had fun at the end, thanks to Ti, who is a really entertaining black dude. Like comedian style. He had the whole bar going.  dominance.

There were only 2 girls in the entire bar, and they were girlfriends of choads.

Lesson: No one really gives a shit, even if you’re dressed funny.

October 8th 2010 Carrot night

Tyler talks about how, on this journey, you will get small carrots to keep you going.

Tonight, I went out to the CITY and was super confident and able to open every set. And I did open EVERY set. There was maybe ten minutes the entire night when I wasn’t in set.

I made it a point to approach the toughest sets I could find. Like 5 dudes1 girl type shit. I’ve never seen so many boyfriends/husbands scramble to claim their girl/wife like last night. Hilarious.

The carrot was making out with a super hot girl. She and her friend come up to me and are like drinks! So, I’m like ya, drinks! You buying. They say no, you buy us drinks. I say, I don’t buy girls drinks. Take the hot one and tell here there are other guys that will probably buy us all drinks. I show her this one guy standing on the fringes of the club with his drink in his hand. She’s like ewwwww noooo. I tell her, fine, I’ll buy you a drink if you kiss me and if it’s good. (Thanks Jeffy) She says if I buy her a shot and a beer she’ll kiss me. I was like, I’ll buy you a beer, but only if it’s good. Go in for the makeout. Full on deluxe. She’s like now you buy drinks. I’m like, ah that kiss was only alright. (it was great= super passionate). She’s getting mad now. I’ve never been in this situation before, so I literally notice my brain scanning itself for what to do. I don’t want to buy drinks, so I don’t. She is kind of freaking out. I try to talk to her more, but her friend, is like- you missed your chance. Hahahah awesome. I love carrots.

Mainly focused on bringing value, making people laugh, and physical escalation. After making out with the hottie, I was on fire. Went up to a crazy tough set- 10 girls sitting at a table. Managed to get in set with just the one I wanted. She was the birthday girl, so I asked her if she had her birthday kiss. She said no, so I tried to give it to her. I tried and tried and tried, but to no avail. Finally, she wanted me to take the group picture, so I did, and they were all super happy about it. The point is, I was trying so hard to kiss her, and none of her friends thought it was weird or creepy; just fun. They didn’t care. This proves a point to me.

Lesson: Physical escalation will not be viewed as weird by people if you’re having fun with it. It brings value.

One thing, I opened a set with a few girls that were just ok looking. Hooked hard. It sucked because I didn’t want to get physical, but it would have been so easy. I used this set to practice some rhythm and pacing. Moving in and out. She totally had the tranced out look in her eyes.

Lesson: Only approach sets that you would fuck.

Really didn’t feel like going out alone. But I pushed through the resistance, got ready, and headed out. Walking in, I talked to the first random guy I saw. Then proceeded upstairs. It was pretty much dead. Blondie  was bartending. She’s my new fav. Some douche made a fool of himself trying to tool me. He was like, I’ve been here for 5 years! Cool dude, maybe that’s how you got so cool. Backturn.

Hit up a set of 8 girls. Get into isolation with one of them. Brit. Sit there and have choad conversation for like 30 minutes. She was wearing a wedding ring. But, she was the hottest girl in the bar. No intent, escalation, or leading. Finally, ejected.

Lesson: Lead more.

Lesson: No one gives a shit if you’re going out alone. This can never be an excuse not to go out.

Lesson: Don’t try and qualify yourself. When you assume qualification, it causes attraction.

Daygame

Go to a festival in town with a couple friends. Decent amount of girls.

I don’t really feel like talking, but force myself to approach. Get social. Start talking to everyone.

Get 3 of my friends to play cornhole. We need a 4th. I spot a cute girl. She’s with two dudes. I go up and say to the girl, we need another person to play cornhole. The guys tell her she should play. I take this as, ok, grab her wrist, and physically pull her to the cornhole game. I introduce her to my friends, and tell her she’s on the other girls team, which means she’ll be standing next to me. Go into pretty standard conversation. Number close. She’s pretty cute, taller than me, and has great legs.

Daygame is kinda weird to me. I’m not sure about a calibrated way to show intent during the day. Maybe verbal intent is greater than physical intent here.

Texted her letter:  hey cutie maybe hang out sometime

no response

----

anyway, enough choading about on rsdnation, i'm heading out to the bar.

Rather than talk about how the bar had 1 dude on stage playing a guitar, 1 dude on the floor watching, and 1 dude bartending, I'll say this: 

It's off season, but I'm laying the groundwork to go off like crazy when town fills up and becomes a conveyor belt of hot tourist girls.
