I've been keeping track of my success ratio with Online Game (on sites like Match, POF & OKC) as well as when I game in Real Life.
Now I'll admit that my online profile is BadAss! (Some of you have seen it)
It's fine-tuned to a science in order to get results... and it does. I literally get hundreds of messages each month by doing nothing other than checking my inbox.
I also get lots of replies when I initiate contact... But I send a LOT of messages. It really becomes a numbers game online; but it's definitely lucrative!
Now, when I compare that to my "Real Life" game, the numbers themselves are definitely a LOT less. (After all, I already did the work with my online profiles, so now it's all residual effect... they just keep producing results while I do nothing)
If I compare the percentage of successful "approaches" between my online initial messages, and when I roll up on a girl when I'm out?
Real life is more successful. At least as far as getting positive responses & early interactions.
Online is probably 65%-75% success.
Real life is about 95%... even though the numbers are lower.
But... when I combine the two (my online connections that turn into real encounters) it's 100%.
All of this basically tells me that my "game" is more effective in real life, because I can incorporate more techniques. (Real smiles, and real touching, the whole vibe of feeding of each other's energy..etc.)
As much as I promote online game (because it works & is soooo easy) There's still no comparison to going out & making that personal connection!!
My problem now is, I'm in a small town in southern Michigan; whereas I WAS in Nashville TN, where hot girls are EVERYWHERE! (What a situation to be in!) lol!
That's not stopping me though.
And just because YOU may be in a small town, that shouldn't stop YOU from going out & meeting people. I don't care how lame a city is, there are STILL beautiful, single women within a 20-30 minute drive (if not closer) who are hoping to meet a guy who knows what he's doing.... And that guy is YOU!
Practice flirting with EVERYONE. Practice GAMING everyone... even people you're not interested in... even friends & family members.
Learn to be quick witted & interesting & magnetic.
Do that, and you'll blow your own mind with the increase in success you have.
