I’ve been a bit de-motivated to daygame in Brisbane and feeling like I have hit a plateau in my daygame skillset so decided to record one of my sessions and then critique myself. My vibe was better this session than normal and I got 4 numbers and 1 facebook from seven approaches. My normal number close ratio is only about 25%
My first set of the day. I really fumbled with my open. But my eye contact was strong and she liked me so I got away with it. I talked too much about myself and realised it so I asked her where she was from, but then I interrupted her and didn’t let her invest or ask questions. I even interrupted her asking a question.
The TV series I was referring to was Narcos, which is a good gambit to use because it allows them some indignation and then I say the word bitch in Spanish which doubles up the indignation.
I got her name wrong on purpose as another gambit to pull her into my frame and make her qualify. The gringo comment went down like a dead balloon. I can see her body language attempting to walk away so I call it out and number close.
I’m a bit more comfortable for my second approach of the day and you can tell by the tone of my voice when I open. I mythologize her and talk about her, all really standard stuff. Brazil – makes me think of BBQ, canned but effective. I notice she hooks and make her invest by guessing where I am from.
Our eye contact was very strong and the set felt pretty sexual, so dumming it down with talk of the weather was ok, but I let it go on too long. I needed to move into more romantic talk rather than facts. “I like being able to spend more time outside and go to the beach and the forest, it’s hard when it’s cold… What do you like to do when you are not working?”
Busy studying etc. is a really boring topic, needs to be more her dreams, goals, what she loves. I can talk about my home life because it grounds the set, but I’m better spinning this into a DHV and weaving it around my exciting life. “One of my flatmates is from Brazil…… I have a big house and rent out the rooms to other students and travelers. It’s great in West End and I work from home so I’m able to spend a lot of time there.
It turns out she was married and living her with her husband so I didn’t bother
My voice is very calm and slow and I think I did this to mirror her body language, she was very shy and reserved, but she gave me very nice eyes and I could tell she liked me. I did a good job of mythologizing her and even a little tease about her being in disguise.
I’m asking a lot of questions that she doesn’t give me much back on but I finally give her a leading question. “I imagine it is much different to Brazil” and allow her to invest and encourage her, even parrot some of her words.
I decided to do some cold reading and tried to get her to relate to me on team introvert. I could have qualified better by saying. “I don’t like party girls we can be friends”
I was a bit lost on the boyfriend. I didn’t want to go full r-selected and say. “I don’t want to be your boyfriend”. I should have just said. “It’s ok, I understand, it’s good to make new friends” and just doubled up on the eye fucking. I overcome her resistance ok and by telling her how much she likes me I keep myself out of the friend box. It just wasn’t as smooth as I could be.
As I opened I realized that I had opened her before so this was a decent save teasing her about her hair, which she loved. I had no idea how I knew her, nor remember anything about our previous conversation. I just assumed I had daygamed her.
I challenge her by asking her my name and seeing what she remembers of our first interaction, which is nil. I realize she is not going anywhere and has hooked, so I call out she finds me attractive and drive home the male-female polarity by asking why we haven’t dated.
She says she has a boyfriend and I test to see if he is in Australia, which he is. At this stage, I figure the set is dead and I am just self-amusing. But with her strong response, I probably could have gone the “I don’t want to be your boyfriend. We can have a secret adventure…” route.
As I opened this girl I realized how pretty her face was. I had followed her into a shop and the music was really loud and also putting me off. After she hooked I really should have bounced her just outside the shop for 5 minutes. In telling my story she didn’t really find it interesting and changed the subject. I should have picked up on this better and taken her feedback about her buying a car as a way to change tack and talk about. “Yeah, when you drive you can really get a feel for the vastness of the countryside and it puts in perspective the distance. You also experience things that you would miss by flying. Like when I was driving from Broome to Perth there were the biggest eagles I had ever seen just standing on the road. They were as tall as the bonnet of my card and they weren’t moving for the car, you had to drive around them. It was a bit scary”
This is ok asking her about her finishing her degree because it gets the topic onto her. As she talks about her masters I interrupt her which is bad. This is a good opportunity to dig into her dreams and hopes rather that employment opportunities. She ends up doing it for me.
I DHV with my office as my laptop, but she doesn’t hook on any of my personal topics which tells me she shows almost zero interest in me. Anyway I number close and maybe we will get a date and she’s horny.
This girl’s body language was very warm and sexual. I was very close to her and touching her as we talked. I’m making a lot of sign language like pointing to my eyes when I say “saw” and her when I say “you”. There is great sexual energy that is hard to capture on audio.
She was making funny theatrical faces which I really liked. She writes on her phone. “I look for an apartment with my friends” and I challenge her to say it in English. As I say “we can get married” I put my arm around her. I’m in a pretty strong vibe so I can away with this sort of thing. I do a basic number close.
Because of the language barrier, there is not so much to write about, but this was probably the most promising set of the day.
We both crossed the lights at the same time just near my house. Crossing the road made it a bit awkward, but I am happy with what I did under the circumstances. She wouldn’t stop and talk, but invited me to walk with her. Loved how I said she sounded like the queen. She walked the long way to cross at the footpath. I took the shortcut and waited for her. We walked to the massage place and she was paranoid about being 1 minute late. I number closed under an awkward situation. She wasn’t that good a sort anyway.
