    Default Othello's 30 Day Challenge: College Edition

    In this thread I will approach at least one set every day for 30 days in hopes of making it a habit. End Goal : Become more naturally social with not just women put people as a whole. (Critiques of each approach or pointers would be appreciated).


    Day 1 : Practice (Where's Iverson?)

    My friend points out a 4 set that he is salivating on in the dining hall. He is on an approach hiatus so he tells me go approach. When I tell you this girl he pointed out had cakes (booty) I mean she had CAKES.

    Anyways, he tells me one of the girls is pretty ditsy and the girls while very attractive were not anyone I would like to follow up with. I get up to refill my drink and push the aa away. I'm not going to lie, I had some AA but I just didn't want to fail this challenge.

    The Open
    I open the girls by telling them I saw them and that they were the second most attractive table in the dining hall so I came over to make it #1. My game is pretty narcissistic-funny. That open gets a laugh and I ask names, they say their names and I don't say my name ( I always forget) but a blonde HB asks my name. They are pretty caught off guard so I blame their lack of communication on the fact that they aren't normally approached but a sexy black man which gets laughs all around.

    Transition

    I take the awkward silence tip I read on here and asks the girls, "Do I have to do all of the talking?" They weren't really receptive but I wasn't bothered I wanted to get my convo kinks out on them . I tell them a brief story about my dream I had. 3 of the 4 were on phones (I'm pretty sure they were texting each other how awkward it was lol) so I focus my attention to the ditsy blonde. At the end of the story they laugh and we joke about me being 8% closer to going to hell.

    Closing

    I'm pretty sure the girls texted each other saying it was awkward and to leave. They get up and I jokingly tell them to get one more look at me before they leave. I didn't ask for a number. I return to my table and debrief with my fellow friends. The blonde HB glances over at me as she walks past but I ignore. I was intentionally not showing too much excitement when returning to my friends as they passed. I got them genuinely laughing which was good. Overall I can do better.

    What I learned

    - It felt GOOD to get an approach out of the way. I have all this PUA info in my head so to actually put some to use was fun. The AA was pretty nonexistent in the conversation but since I am rusty with the approaches I fumbled over a few words. This will all be fixed with practice.

    - I'm happy I didn't try to Number Close because we weren't cliquing enough and I felt asking for a number would have been just stupid on my part.

    - I struggled with deciding whether to go direct with one girl or to approach the whole table. I kind of wish I went super direct and made it as fun as possible for myself but I felt zero awkwardness on my part which was good.

    -Next time I see any of them I plan to tease them for being shy around me. I don't really want to pursue anything with these girls but since my whole table was salivating over them I plan to try to befriend the girls for social proof but I won't bother them or go outta my way. It's college I'll run into them again.

    What to work on

    -
    More Confidence/Cockier - Teasing - Being more direct with intentions
    - More Comfort when talking - Slowing down when talking.
    - Getting the girls talking more. - Approaching sooner

    So far I'm content. Each day I want to improve and I'm happy I took the first step.

    Day 2 : Late Approach and Lazy Post

    First off I am cutting it far too close. I am waiting way too long to get my approach over with. Today I almost choked but completing my challenge willed me to approach. I am starting to really enjoy this whole challenge. Here's my lazy debrief:

    The Open

    I am walking back from an exam to my dorms in the evening thinking in my head that this is probably the last chance I'll have all day to approach someone. As I am nearing my dorms I spot a hot blonde turning walking in my direction I dig deep and open.

    I do the, "Clever Way to Hold a Girls Hand" trick by AngryPicnic on YouTube and I swing my arms along with the blonde for a brief moment as we hold hands. The video is seriously genius, deserves a watch. I ask where are we going and she responds the library.

    Transition

    This was a quick approach. I walk towards the street light with her and she asks me if I was dared to approach. I tell her that "You're beautiful, I'm beautiful, sexy people should get to know each other." She is friendly but so surprised that a random person approached her out of free will.

    The Close

    I tell cockily tell her we can discuss whether or not I was dared to approach her (she thought by a frat) at a later time and to give me her number. I hand her my phone she puts in her number and wala. She says she probably won't respond and I tell her, "Yes you will with a smirk" She's responds with a smirk of her own and says she has a boyfriend every so lightly. I don't plan to text her, but if I see her I will talk to her. Having hot friends isn't a bad thing.

    What I Learned

    I am pretty damn witty when it comes to responses with girls. When I come off in a joking way to open girls they are so shocked by the approach they think I couldn't possibly have done it by free will dhv on me and gets them curious as to why I approached.

    What to work on

    Approach sooner in the day and with girls you actually want to continue talking to.

    Keep up the attempts for early Kino and have fun!

    Once I opened this girl today I opened another a few hours later on the street and got another number. I need to step my approach game up and get into the Mindset earlier.

    Day 3 : Last Ditch Effort

    I am waking up with less nerves in my stomach about approaching. Today I planned on going earlier but I kept procrastinating. Either I like waiting till my back is against the wall to approach or nerves/over thinking hold me back. I'm thinking a combination.

    The Approach

    I walk all over my campus today, I had my fair share of opportunities but just didn't do it. But as my friends and I were walking back to the dorms from basketball outside I knew it was now or never.

    This girl was the last girl I had the chance to talk and thank God happened to be attractive.

    I open with "Excuse me, do you have a smartphone? My phone has been messing up all day and I'm trying to figure out what's wrong" She says yes and pulls out her phone and I grab it an run! Lol jk. I then say, "Oh I know what's wrong, It doesn't have your number in it" with a straight face. She laughs turns to walk away but sees my holding my phone out and complies.

    Transition

    There was little transition, my phone had accidentally locked me out for 10 seconds for incorrect code so I jokingly told her that and chatted her up for a bit. I knew I wasn't going to follow up with this girl because I didn't put in enough effort into my approach. She was a sweet girl though, if I see her again I'll joke about it. I wasn't in my narcissistic way of thinking so the interaction was pretty basic. I didn't feel awkward though which was a plus.

    Closing

    Got her number and told her I'll text her and she can respond or not because I could have cared less if she responded. I just sent her, "OMG gurl that black guy who just approached you was hot!" for laughs. No response as anticipated but it's whatever I'm not taking any number for granted.

    What I Learned

    THE CHALLENGE CONTINUES. I am so motivated by not failing this challenge. Each day I pride myself on putting down a tally mark on a white piece of paper in my dorm room. It becomes my motivation not to fail, to get better, to unleash my full potential as a social creature. Having friends remind me of my streak and to push me is really a plus.

    When I feel pressured to keep the streak alive I have no hesitation opening and I do a good job of getting the girl smiling. I always make a statement and assume the girls going to give me the number over asking.

    I'm keeping track that my goal is not to get numbers but to get these girls to meet up with me again.

    What To Work On

    Be more confident. Go after what I want not just someone to fill the tally quota.
    Take earlier shots stupid! I need to stop putting myself against the wall. I really have a problem approaching girls I find personally attractive.

    If I start earlier in the day, I will be loose and wildly more successful.

    Taking it one day at a time.

    Keeping it sexy,
    - Othello

    I'm definitely following this. Be careful with some of your openers - you don't want to be the creepy guy on campus that hits on everyone. News travels fast - especially in the bigger schools thanks to social media

    Overall, great job so far! You're being witty and borderline arrogant, which I think is plus with humor. I have a feeling you'll do really well by the end of your challenge
    Always leave her better than you found her.

    Thank you! And will do on the directness, I'll be more situational. I'll save the direct for special occasions. Hopefully I have good stories this weekend.

    Day 4: Compliments of the Chef

    Today was a beautiful day, not quite Suns Out Guns Out weather but pretty damn good! These college women sure do know how to doll themselves up

    I decide today to not worry about approaching girls directly with the intent of getting a number (reminded by Vicodin not to be too direct too often), but to just complimenting random people on the streets. I did this to boost my confidence and also have people I complimented see me as a social and genuinely nice guy.

    The Approaches

    My goal was NOT to hit on the girls, but to simply compliment them on something I like and to walk away that's it. No matter the response I was to just walk away. I didn't even want names, I wanted people to not see me as a guy hitting on them but as a person giving a genuine compliment. I really want to get into a social Mindset and use situational openers that people are usually to shy to say to my advantage.

    - I complimented a few girls on their glasses, a few people (male and female) on their shirts and that was it. Nothing too special today. I could have done more with the compliments but it's whatever. As long as I'm getting some social exposure I feel like I win the day. College is a marathon, not a sprint I don't need to stop every person and # close.


    No Transition or Close

    What I Learned

    I'll probably start complimenting people far more often. It is an easy way to warm people up.
    People genuinely do appreciate compliments. Women get all fancy and looking fine so it is only right that I compliment them on a cool necklace or shirt. One girl was all giggly after I complimented her, it felt good to put a smile on a unsuspecting persons face. Through all of my narcissistic ways, I'm still a human who enjoys making others feel good lol.

    I also figured I could re open these people later on by saying, "Hey you are the person with the stylish shades!" and talk to them more naturally. It makes the approaches much more warm because in a predominately white college, they'll remember the black guy who appreciated their dress game.

    What to Work On

    -Taking advantage of situational openers. I find myself in so many situations and I have some brilliantly hilarious comment to say but I just don't pull the trigger.

    -Befriending more females/males with abundance.

    -Being more comfortable/natural in interactions. Adopting the BFF Mentality (talking to a girl like I've been their best friend for years).

    External Forces

    Just a quick thought. I am now so committed to this challenge that I have little time for negativity.

    I've told friends of my challenge and my roommate (he's into PU but still a douchebag that I tolerate better than others) and they support it but my roommate is a pessimist to my success all the time.

    Instead of arguing or venting on here I pretty much will keep the advancement of my quest to myself and close friends. It feels like I'm not only proving to myself but to others that I have what it takes to become the Alpha I know I can be. I like the challenge of being doubted, it is another fuel to my fire.

    The best way to get back at doubters is through success.

    My Tentative Mindset/Frame

    My frame is shifting in to sort of a Teddy Roosevelt Model. That being, "Speak Softly and carry a big stick!" I get too happy explaining my success to friends. I'm just going to be humble in my social success and let my actions and the work I put in speak for me. This will keep me from thinking of approaching women as a "Big Deal," and become more normal if I act as if it is nothing new for me. That's my words of wisdom for the day.

    Any tips or personal stories on how you guys handle college would be appreciated.


    Staying sexy as always,

    -Othello

    Vicodin gave you some great advice. It's good not to go direct where you will see the girls on a regular basis. These places are the school campus, work, gym, using transit etc.

    In places like these the indirect and situational openers work way better.

    I have been having a lot of success with the "tattoo opener". Google some tattoo designs and then save them on your phone. When you see a girl or a set of girls just walk up and tell them that you want to get a tattoo but you can't decide which one from these 4 tattoos designs that you want to get. You want their opinion on which one suits you best. It's really easy to meet girls this way.

    Of the 4 tattoos you pick get one that looks a bit feminine with a rose in it. Some girls will pick that just to sh!t test you but you can make really good humor out of it.

    I didn't come up with this opener so I have to give credit to "EightBall" who is the one that came up with it. I just tweaked it a bit and field tested it on at least 50 sets. It works quite well.

    Here is the link to EighBall's thread:

    Day 5: When life hands you lemons...(Or in this case racial slurs).

    To be completely honest, I am still not exerting enough effort into this challenge as necessary. From this point on I am being harsher on myself. I am wasting far too much time and I realize my potential. I can get to where I want to be but it is solely up to me.

    I did some mediocre situational daygame approaches but my best approach came during the night.

    Here's the thing, I don't drink so I primarily use night game to practice working on my social skills and opening/Kino (drunk people are touchy creatures). I never try to Number Close or try to sleep with the girls at night because the majority of girls are drunk so I prefer not to (just a personal moral thing).

    The Open

    It was just my wing and I. We being the freshmen (and womenless) guys we are got rejected by two parties. At one party the guys at the door were being completely rude but told us we need 3 girls a piece (so 6 chicks). I told my wing we can pick up 6 girls on the street heading to the party but while he was peeing (broken seal -__-) I choked on an opportunity to have 9 girls escort us in. It would have been SO BOSS to walk up and show the guys at the door up. This is my only regret of the night, won't let it happen again. This situation doesn't apply to my approach but I'm trying to be transparent as possible in these reports.

    Anyways, The Open. After walking around aimlessly for an hour, my wing and I decide to just approach random girls and see what happens. Four girls happen to be dancing in front of us pretty and were wasted but not sloppily wasted. I told my wing to comment on the dancing. The girls turns back and one girl doesn't see me and yells the N WORD (with the a') back at my friend (he's white) in a party crazed/drunk white girl way. They turn back and see me and the girl is instantly embarrassed LOL.

    Transition

    This is perfect I think. I don't get offended about the word so I play it cool. My wing and I switch roles, he acts completely offended while I play it off nonchalantly. At one point I tell the girls I am not black just sunburned from Spring Break in Cancun. They play along and are lovin' me!

    The girl who says the "N word" sprint a few steps forward and the girls, my wing, and I catch up to her. She apologizes again and I do a little teasing. We walk forward and I'm getting asked questions left and right. This girl in red with the group was SUPER into me! She asked me at least 3 times in 2 minutes my name, what my plans were, and where I lived on campus.

    The Close

    These girls weren't really my cup of tea so I don't try to get them to escort my wing and I to a party. I just casually stroll and converse with them while spewing out witty responses. As they turn the street and we depart the girl in red asks for my name ONCE AGAIN. She was so Down with the Brown! If I was a drinker I probably would have escalated with the girl in red and saw where the night took me but I'm about that sober life fellas, I only do night game for fun and practice.

    What I Learned

    - I am better with drunk girls then expected. Prior to college I had zero experience with the night scene so the fact that I can keep a drunk persons attention still surprises me/makes me feel good.

    - I know if I were to drink or even break my no trying to have sex with drunk girls clause I would be a lot more successful but my hearts not into night game. I find it fun but I will always prefer quality women during the day and getting to know someone over late night hook ups. Not knocking the night life, it is hella fun to laugh at/with drunk people and see them so loose.

    - Everyone is so attached to people on the same floor of them in their dorm (I'm stuck in this clique too). There's endless opportunities for me to make a name for myself. I can't express how disappointed I feel when I realize how many people I don't know.

    What To Work On

    - Pulling the trigger. I am still missing far too many great opportunities to meet new people.

    - Social mindset. Once I open one person I realize it is so easy to talk to girls. It's just that I wait too long to open and by the time I come back to this realization I already missed my opportunity.

    -Talking to Olive Chick (nickname given to her by my friends and I). Ever had that girl you find attractive on campus and see literally everywhere but just can't talk to them? Yeah that's her. This is my biggest demon right here fellas. I'll go into detail on her later. It's not one-itis, but getting over the hump. She's the one girl that success or fail, by approaching her I will take a huge step forward in my improvement.


    I need to get more out of my comfort zone. No more baby steps, only grown man moves.

    I am my biggest roadblock to success.

    Day 6: Only Failing Myself

    Today I failed my daily goal. I did not talk to one new female all day.

    This hurts. I was lazy and unmotivated. No excuses.

    I go through a bit of an internal struggle. I sometimes question if I can become the man I strive to be. It's going to take a lot more commitment on my part to accomplish my goal of liberating myself socially and mentally.

    Not going to quit, I'll be back tomorrow...
