What are your thoughts on developing well rounded game and learning how to deal with different types of girls/situations vs. only focusing on a style that you like the most/is most congruent with who you are?

Cool to see you posting on the forums again, you had me on bootcamp last February in montreal and damn is your game impressive, I still have visuals and WTF's in my head from things such as molestation of girls after saying hi and sitting near them in simple bars early in the night... I know you like to downplay it because it's not super high energy or whatever but you're so smooth it's crazy, can't wait to see some of the things you have to say.

BTW, I really enjoyed your mastermind about comedy and improv skills, it helped me more conciously understand why some events in the past were funny, I need to re-listen to it and note down all the exercises you talk'd about to hopefully get better at skipping ideas and going to the next one (A --> C) and doing "smart" jokes as you call them.

My question is should you ever ask for anything?  I know that it's better to go too hard and apologize then go too soft by presenting a choice and lose momentum.

But with the latest trend of "making yourself vulnerable", is it counterproductive to leading the interaction if you ask for permission before iniating something if you're not sure it will be well received?

First of all, any question starting with "do you ever" is almost always going to have a "yes" answer simply because game is fluid and there are far more grey areas than black and white.

As to WHEN it's a good idea to ask for things... I can give you 2 examples off the top of my head:

1.  When you know a girl wants something emotionally, but she hasn't thought about it in a logical manner yet.  You'd like to have her agree to it logically, so she is committed to it.  When she's committed to it, she has to justify it to herself and also by making the committment it makes it far harder for her to back out later.

2.  When you can ask for something small and get something big...  If you ask a girl's permission to tell a story, she's locked in for the duration of the story.... if you ask her to come see something with you, she's locked in until you see that thing... if you ask to fix her hair, she's going to have a hard time saying no to you stroking or pulling it.   I'm sure you can come up with a ton of other examples of this priciple.

Do both.  How much of each depends on your personal goals.  Think about what you personally want out of game (there are no wrong answers) and that should answer this question for you.

Todd... question from your mastermind.. You used to got out and just have fun and missed a lot of opportunities because you were having so much fun. How did you transition out of this phase to a have fun while getting laid? 

Did I actually say that?  Game is never fun.  It is serious weight of the world on your shoulders work, and never meant to be enjoyed.  Remember that.

On a more serious note, I actually am surprised by that quote because I think I have the most low energy and boring game of anyone I've ever seen get results.  In answer to your question... ESCALATE and take risks.

How do you balance the line between being high energy and someone fun to be around and being chilled out and relaxed? I've had success with both, (usually depending on your internal state) nut it seems that being high energy you're a lot more likely to lose a girl to "the next shiny object" so it's more of a high wire act.

I'm always as low energy as I can get away with.  I prefer to hold their attention through intrigue, emotional commitment, physical escalation, and even social compulsion over being high energy.  But that's just a personal style borne out of the fact that I am neither fun nor high energy (relative to other instructors).  Also, I realized that I'll be gaming into my 40's or 50's and I don't really want to be running high energy game, or trying to re-learn game at that age...
