Not too much in here, but I feel the need to write this.
Last night I went out sarging in a night club. I was with my friends (all AFC's). To give me some motivation I bet one of them $30 I would get a number. That didn't end up happening unfortunately and I lost $30.
I first warmed up by talking to some married woman sitting by herself. She was very interested in me, but she wasn't attractive so after I felt warmed up I ejected myself politely.
A couple minutes later I opened a HB 9 standing in line for a drink. I opened with an AFC opener about how she was standing there forever for a drink. She smiled and said something, but I couldn't hear her due to the loud music, so I stopped trying to game her. I think she was just being polite anyway.
After aimlessly walking around to find HBs (probably not the best thing to do as far as social proof goes) I sat down with a friend at a table in a quieter part of the club and talked to him for a few minutes. Then came the highlight of the night.
I walked over to a four set. The set contained a HB 8, HB 7 (both sisters), and two unattractive girls. Obviously I chose the HB 8 as the target. I opened with an opinion opener "I need a female opinion on blah blah blah". Ever since I started reading all this PUA stuff, all these things seem so obvious what I am trying to do, but the set was clueless, so it was actually kind of funny and relaxed me when I was talking to them. My opener had them all talking and I was the center of attention. Then the HB 8 accidentally spit on my arm so I lightly negged her on it and she got a little embarrassed.
For some dumb reason I felt the need to use another opener, but I asked a different question. The HB 7 tried to tease me and asked me if I was conducting a survey and if I work for the government. Luckily, I do work for the government so like cocky ass I said yea and I showed her my ID to be funny. I am not sure if this was a good idea or not, but it shut HB 7 up, who was starting to get a little bitchy, and the other girls laughed. At this point the HB 8 was giving me IOI's and kept leaning into me to hear what I was saying while I was talking to the group. I then ran the "I can tell you guys you guys have been friends for a while". The conversation was going well, but then two of their other friends came over and they all ignored me and starting hugging each other. I tried to be loud as I can to say "Oh! Introduce me to your friends!", but my voice got drowned out and I lost the center of attention. It started to get really awkward and I had to eject myself. If I only had a few more minutes I would have been able to isolate the HB 8. How would you guys handle that situation?
I went over to the dance floor I told one of my friends to wing me and ask these two girls to dance, but he misunderstood me and walked over to these rather unattractive girls. Luckily the one I was dancing with was the best looking and could be a HB 6 on a better day. For practice sake I tried to game her, plus she had a nice rack After the dance I took the girl I was with over to the bar and her two other friends followed. They were pressuring me to do shots. I told them no since I was driving (I also am not a big drinker anymore). They ordered shots and expected me to pay for it. I didn't, but the one girl spilled her shot and I got the bartender to give her another. I tried to move these girls to the quieter area, but they couldn't hear me and I couldn't hear them. I was getting frustrated and annoyed so I ditched them.
That was it for the night. I think the lesson learned is to sarge somewhere less loud. I also learned that all the alpha male traits I learned allowed me to feel much more confident. Honestly, I felt like the most alpha guy there and I also noticed all the bad body language of all the other guys! I also discovered that I don't really have Approach Anxiety in the night game (day game is a different story though), but I do need to be better prepared.
