Re: Does the Mystery Method still work?
I found that in a college/University senario, doing cold approaches rarely works. The main thing you need to have under your belt is social proof, a dominant and fun attitude and always being happy.
Like I said before a cold approach isn't good, a simple friendly opener/teasing one works well, then you can go into the Mystery Method in A2 when you have hooked the target and/or the obstacles.
One senario I remembered was during the freshers week, my first approach was one with a 4 set. I opened them up with "I'm going to go out on a limb and say you're all freshers here". Used a FTC. A bit of fluff with the group. One of the more not so good looking girls in the set kept on saying how confident I was, used that to DHV. Negged target and used a bit of push-pull. Got her into isolation, talked a bit about what she did back home, ran the cube to show more DHV, got her number.
Funny thing is my friends believed I was gaming the ugly one. I told them, no, you need to divide and conquer. They where astonished about how good I was during the whole week. So much so my best friend keeps going on about the time I managed to steal two girls simultaneously from two AMOGs.
