Re: Strategies for going out without a wing
I go out solo nearly all the time. I do that because I love interacting with new people, and isn't that a crucial point stressed in pick-up?
From my experiences, here is what I can recommend to you:
#1. Know the Events
You should go around town and figure out all of the weekly, monthly, one time happenings that are going on. Mark these in an electronic calender, so you always have it on hand when figuring out where to go or what to do. Events are a hot spot of social interaction, and I can say I have had a bulk of my successes when there was a party-type event going on in the downtown area.
#2. Know the Spots
Sometimes you don't even need an event as an excuse to go out. Figure out where you just see people the most. It can be a park, a store, a part of town, or wherever. Hell, I've hit on a girl in a GNC before. That goes to show that any place is a possibility.
#3. Know the Talk
The most important part of this is knowing how to converse in the street. Confidence is one thing, but being able to effortlessly carry out a conversation with one, two, or a group of people is essential. My best advice to you is to go check out the Sasha Daygame videos on Youtube. Use them as a guide for tips and such. After that, it's all just practice, practice, practice.
#4. Know the People
It helps to make friends with some of the big guys and people in the streets. I can say that I've figured out a ton of things from becoming good friends with the shopkeepers in my hometown. I've also got a date coming up because I became good friends with a retired doctor, who happens to have a grand daughter my age. Just goes to show that gaming anyone who is anyone can yield all sorts of interesting benefits.
That is all that I have on the matter. As you go out more and more on your own, you may meet a guy or two you can tag team with and get some more action in. That's what happened with me recently, and now I'm busy with him for the rest of the week. In addition, you will find your own style and methods as you test out what you know on your own and in the field.
