I know the year’s not over, but apart from a trip to Las Vegas with Craig next week my daygame cold approaching is in hibernation mode until January, while I plough on with editing Stealth Seduction and recharging my batteries. Farewell 2016, it’s been pleasurable.
A common view in the pickup community is that “counting notches” or tracking data is somehow petty and “low vibrational” (as Self Help gurus like to say). In reality, every player I know counts his lays to some degree and is in the Game to primarily get laid (whether they publicise that or not). Don’t Hide Your Dick is a key mindset of mine.
“What you don’t measure you can’t manage,” as the saying goes. I’ve always tracked my results so I can see my progress and spot areas to work on. Daygame is an empircal activity in that without real-world feedback and results, it’s impossible to know if your skill-set is improving.
Here’s my 2016 data for this year:
TOTAL NUMBER OF LAYS: 37
SAME DAY LAYS: 9
FIRST DATE LAYS: 13
SECOND DATE LAYS: 10
MORE THAN TWO DATE LAYS: 5
NATIONALITIES: British, American, Canadian, Colombian, Polish, Iranian, German, Dutch, Ukrainian, Japanese, Moldovan, Thai, Singaporean, Kazakh, Belarusian
PROFESSIONS: Students, hairdresser, doctor, waitresses, nanny, economist, fitness instructor, chef, model, physicist
YOUNGEST AGE: 17
OLDEST AGE: 31
MEAN AGE: 21
NUMBER WHO TOLD ME ABOUT BOYFRIENDS/HUSBANDS: 20
NEAR MISSES (she’s on my bed, we’re making out, semi-naked): 10
15 of the lays will be in my new daygame infield video product Stealth Seduction showing you a wide selection of scenarios and girls, including a 3sum, a park lay, gutter game and same day lays.
I’ve been to Iceland, USA, Canada, Colombia, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Italy, Denmark, Norway, Moldova, Ukraine, Singapore & Japan and daygamed in 23 cities.
There’s been solo daygame expeditions as well as travelling and gaming with wings (Rami, Alex, Ian, Turkish, Craig and Tim). Other trips have been to teach students across the globe.
It’s crucial to remember that in daygame there are more losses than wins. I’ve been “rejected” more than I’ve got laid. I must have been on nearly 100 dates this year after hundreds of sets on the street, in cafes, stores, malls, parks and stations. There is always more “no” than “yes” – that’s how the cards are stacked and the game is played.
Main issues I’ve had this year include pulling too fast and giving off too much of a player vibe which has meant more LMR and less second dates. Because of the travelling I’ve also missed out on closing many leads due to them falling off the radar.
Let me know how you’ve gotten on this year and what you’ll be focussing on in 2017. Reading success stories gives me encouragement to carry on producing content.
Right, enough blog distractions. Back to editing the infields and drinking tea (in between porn, eating and sleeping) 😉
