Below is my field report for week 1:
I'm just starting out. I read a little bit material (the game and the venusian arts handbook) and am committing myself to getting out there and opening some sets. I still need to map exactly what my goals are, right now I'm just looking to open sets and improve my skills. I got a lot of work ahead of me, but over all week 1 was a good start.
I tried some day game but failed miserably. Day game is a lot of harder than I thought. I was walking around the mall alone and got Approach Anxiety so I didn't open any sets. Happened to me three times. I either need to grow some balls during day game, or bring a wing man out.
I did go out Friday and Saturday night and had a little success.
Friday: I went out with my AFC roommate I opened up two 8-8.5s which went really well. My success with them was limited by two factors, they had bar stools, and I was just lingering around them and I milked a conversation for all it was worth.
I later went to another bar and opened two more sets, one went horrible, I studdered and sounded like an idiot while opening and they ran away. I solo girl later walked by and talked to her, then I told her I had to go and she gave me her number. Although I sent her a text saturday and didn't get a response.
Saturday: I met up with two guys, one who had read a lot material but didn't have a lot of field experience, and the other was the opposite, didn't read a lot of material but his field experience was plentiful. I walked in and opened up the first set I saw, it was a two set, it went great, I through out some false time constraints and I had them hooked. However the wingman came over and started talking to one, so I talked the other one. I didn't throw out any negs and gave her an IOI to quickly, think she got bored and walked away. I opened up a couple of other sets, gave my number to one but, although I don't think she'll text or call me. But she took my number cause of my improvement after the first set, I was sure to tease her a little bit (she looked young).
Over I wouldn't say I have any trophies to take with me but this weekend I opened up about 10 sets and learned a good a mount about what I need to improve one.
-Slow down my talking, I talk to fast.
-Let the girls talk a little bit, I talk to much and don't pause
-Use negs, I didn't use any
-During my openers, I caught there attention and initial attraction was sparked
