Some of the guys in this forum tend to overthink the game too hard.
Here, and you agree that its THAT simple:
In the most basic form this is the process-
1) Select Target
2) Evaluate and be aware of the environment including the alpha females, the CBs, and the boyfriend, what have you.
3) Get her attention, if in mass, grab her groups attention. Remember to establish a FTC.
4) Build an emotional connection through DHVs, Fluff, negs, etc.
5) Isolate the target.
6) Build a physical connection, step 4 must still be maintained but not predominantly, mostly via small talk and fluff.
7) Escalate that connection.
Hope this helps some of you more anxious newcomers.
