I've been doing some thinking about how your overall mood effects the way people perceive you, and how easy it is to meet women and have them gain interest in you. Of course we all know that if you're in a foul mood you'll still project it no matter how hard you try and hide it.
I also heard from a pick-up related podcast about how most guys who study game aren't idiots, they're usually very intelligent. People who are intelligent tend to overthink things and second-guess themselves, and it doesn't show a lot of confidence. You can also create a self-fulfilled prophecy where if you think about failure you'll probably end up failing. So basically guys who think too much are hurting their chances of picking up women.
So long story short, last night I brought home this gorgeous French girl I met at a bar. I posted on here about how lately I've been striking out worse and worse, and as time goes on the girls I have been able to get have been getting lower and lower in quality. This was also a bar that I used to have luck in, but the past year or so I've just been having no luck. How was it that the past couple girls I've been with have been insanely average, but this gorgeous European beauty wanted to come back with me? I didn't consciously use any game, really, just a lot of cocky humor and negs.
But my Mindset was weird last night - I almost didn't go out. I've been really overworked lately and the past week I had no sleep. Saturday night I went to bed at 6AM and woke up at 9AM, and I just stayed awake the rest of the day. I was EXHAUSTED. I got to the bar with a friend, sat down for a bit with some brews, and then decided to get up and dance. I was so tired that I just didn't care, and I found myself breaking out of my shell (I'm a horrible dancer and never usually dance unless I'm hammered). I met Ms. Paris outside, and my friend and I ran some negs on her, and she invited us to hang out with her friends. We danced a bit, made out, and then I offered to have her come back. I didn't think about it, I just did it. I pretty much had no cognitive thinking abilities due to the mixture of exhaustion and alcohol. But it worked. I notice that if I'm wide awake I tend to think way too much, and that always trips me up.
So, guys, have you noticed better success when you're alert and awake? Or do you have better luck if you're tired? I'd imagine this has a ton of influence on your actions and how you present yourself.
