tired of getting lots of flakes? yeah me too.
I have found that a lot of the time, getting a girls number isn't the best option. I mean think about it, you approach a girl, talk for maybe 10-20 minutes get her number and then what? you spend hours texting her only to come up empty handed when she won't go out with you. or if even if you do get her hooked and end up going out with her, you end up investing a lot of time into getting the lay. in particular, you have a lot of "in between" time tied up in texting or phone game. imo this "in between" time is all unnecessary effort.
now to be honest with you, I don't particularly like spending time "entertaining" the girl over text. and honestly my text game is not on par with my "in-person" game. so to make up for it, I like to just cut it altogether if possible
that's right, I decided that a great way to avoid flakes is simple, don't be satisfied with a Number Close. instead talk to her for as long as possible and push to Isolate her as fast as possible. don't leave the set until you get flat out rejected completely or until you fark your target.
now of course there are times when the number close is more appropriate, but don't expect girls to answer your calls or to meet you after texting, because most of the time they don't.
the opportunity to win is while you're still talking to her for the first time. at least kiss her the day you meet her, and you will be able to avoid having flakes.
essentially when you push your sets to the limit, you avoid getting number from girls who "just want friends" or from girls who aren't very interested.
my challenge to you is simple: don't get a number close until you are at least 1-2 hours into the set or until you have at least kissed your target.
as a rule of thumb, the longer you talk to her, the more likely she will want to meet up with you later on.
while text game is nice, I feel like it is largely a waste of time.
