An observation about game and people getting in to it I’ve picked up from other posts. Game is not black and white. It’s not off or on. Even all these people that worry about routines and running things in the right order. That works for some people sure, and if it does for you then by all means don’t stop. But in general, people are putting too much emphasis on the proper technique, on saying the right things in the right order, on the proper negs.
Good game comes with increments that you ingrain into yourself. It comes with the things you learn that you take away permanently. It comes from mastering inner game, confidence. It comes from being able to walk up to people and say Hi, not just HBs you intend to pickup. (Shout out to LockDown who posted some really similar stuff in a recent feed).
I was at my grandma and grandpa’s 65th anniversary earlier today. I noticed myself Kinoing with family members and the church paster, no not flirtatious kino, just physical touch, touching their arm as I said hello. Putting my hand on their shoulder as I came up to say Hi, instead of just a tap. It actually helps build a connection between two people and shows you as a much more caring person. It’s an example of how knowing game has changed how I interact with the world around me in general.
Stop worrying about pre-scripted negs. Think about teasing, you want to be playful, you want to tease people. I’ve teased my boss lightheartedly (and bear in mind I work for a major corporation, not some casual company), remarks about what she did over the weekend, etc. Teasing does not have to be insulting, nor should it be. It’s fun and it’s suitable for everyone. Negs have their place, but you don’t need them in 90% of pickup so stop worrying about them, just tease and be playful.
Again, the game is not off or on. The game is part of life. Take the things you can use in your every day life. Start to talk to people like people. Love opinion openers? Use them in the elevator, ask the security guard at your work. Ask guys, start to open people because you’re legitimately curious about what they have to say. Not only will you make lots of friends, this will blow your AA out the window.
You want to be a MPUA, stop worrying so much about the routines. Worry about being confident and sociable. Take the little things you’re learning and make them part of your life.
