I have a very situation specific problem which is holding me back a great deal, and would love to read your thoughts on this.
My job is in management for an international organisation, meaning I have worked in loads of different countries over the past decade. Highlights for game were Russia, Poland and Portugal - absolutely some of my best and most successful interactions with women were in these places.
However, my previous two and my current locations have been in extremely religious or socially conservative countries. Latterly I was based in Cairo and Tunis (during the revolutions also) so pick-up was simply out of the question, and I had to rely on tourist girls. This provided problems as people on a one week or so holiday cling more tenaciously to their social groups than in normal settings, or are just with a partner anyway. I had some good results with 'Hey I live here I can show you around etc' but not as much as I had hoped.
Now I am in Sri Lanka, which is a lot more relaxed than Cairo and Tunis, but is still very socially conservative. I'm still pretty much confined to tourist game except those wonderful moments when I can holiday in Europe.
One important difference however, is that this country is mostly buddhist and so the conservatism is based more on social mores than religion. It is still pretty much the case though that after two dates the girl is still thinking more about marriage and meeting the family then anything else!
What do you think is the appropriate game for piercing not just the usual shields, but subverting social pressure? Has anyone got any ideas or suggestions? I have some, for example I had some promising results running a BF destroyer routine, but with the BF replaced with reasons why she couldn't kiss me, see me without being in an LTR for example - but this is a real struggle and potentially very hazardous.
