Now don't get me wrong I still think having successes and being in a good emotional state will extremely help your game. I just don't think it is required any more to open the girls you want.
Depending on your state vs depending on yourself
Last weekend I went out and got annihilated. I mean I did at least 5 openers and got shot down and shut out over and over. After reflecting on that bad reference experience I realized it is not all about state. Why? Because doing all those so called warm ups didn't help lift my confidence. I realized the old truth "success brings confidence" this is true since the only times I have a super high emotional state is when I am getting somewhere with my approaches.
I used to think "state, state, state!" and I would run my warm ups to prepare for that "dimepiece or stunner" to be in full gear. This is just not true anymore for me.
Dynamics of Approaching and knowing your limits
Now I used to open any old girl that was a slight bit cute. Not now, from now on I am only going to open the ones I am literally attracted to. I used to do this because I was afraid of not seeing any dimepieces and just wanted to learn. Well getting involved with warm ups didn't help me as I intended and I have been falling for girls I never liked to begin with.
This brings in a ray of confusion that makes it hard for me to know what I want and makes me look kinda desperate. So my new goal is to only approach the women that I am attracted to. I spent all day doing day game once on hot women I didn't want but couldn't approach the girls that I wanted who were hot and I was supposedly in "state".
So no I don't think warm ups matter anymore even if I have to go to the Club on an off night again I am not going to be spending all my time warming up and getting in "state" with chicks I don't even care about anymore. I am just going to approach the ones I have always been afraid of and go from there. I mean who cares?
