I would just like to discuss some thoughts and feelings that have arisen recently with regards to what is expected of us as PUA's and just PU in general.
Everyone that is dedicated to the "game" can somehow relate to what I am about to say. And if not, you are still really new and I feel that you could learn something.
Firstly I am no expert and have only been in the game for a short period of time but I believe there are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to what is good game and what is bad game. New guys (me included) get into this habit of thinking that when X happens, Y has to follow with no exceptions, otherwise your game will not be effective. This is evident when newbies focus on perfecting canned material and routines and when the sh1t hits the fan, they have no idea what to do next.
My reasoning for this post is that I have recently been opened, by a really gorgeous lady, through OkCupid. I don't exactly have the greatest profile but for some reason this particular lady found it interesting enough to initiate conversation. Up until recently, I have been so focused on how to portray myself, purely because of everything I have learned about PU, that I almost became a robot programmed only to operate within the "rules" of the game. There are no rules!!! Despite what everyone says about you needing to do this to dhv or you need to follow this routine to Number Close, You should be more focused on being as natural as possible, using your own judgement and common sense to decide what is acceptable and what is more likely to yield favorable results. I look back at some of my messages to this lady and I can see a ton of things I have done that would be considered AFC, but they have had the complete opposite effect of what I expected. We have been able to have one of the most intelligent and interesting conversations I've ever had with any lady in my life. In fact she has even mentioned that we need to meet in person to get to know each other better.
Basically this post is telling you guys that you need to pay more attention to calibrating with a lady then worrying about the next piece of canned material in your routine stack. After all, a lady would undoubtedly prefer to have a conversation with someone that seems to be intellectually intelligent, instead of someone that has the perfect reply to any question or situation that arises during a "regular, human like" interaction.
Don't fall into the trap of trying to remember every aspect of PU but rather just go with the flow of things and don't be afraid of trying new things.
