Well this has always been a big debate inside PUA. What i really think the correct answer is, look inside yourself and see who you are and how you game/work best.
For me scripted (guided) Indirect Game is best, my mind tends to wander, i highly enjoy complicated things and i know i have a high chance of remaining blank if i don't have anything prepared, i do let go though when i'm building comfort or when i know things are going smooth.
I suggested just learning the cube because nobody i know, no matter how charming he is, can hold a conversation for a large amount of time without any silence coming up, and its even worse if something unexpected happens. Having a gambit or two ensures you always have an ace up your sleeve for those cases, there's also the fact that always doing what feels natural might mean you never learn from your mistakes.
That's great, but still do keep it in mind man, know that we only remember the good parts, but every relationship has both good and bad and sometimes downright ugly, there's a good chance of all those coming back. Like my example with my ex above, i remembered the good and later on the infuriating, it took me on a roller coaster ride to the past, and of course it affected me.I thought about that a bit actually, how the old feelings and just remembering things about each other might start to come back, so you basically confirmed that for me. I think that's an okay thing though, we had a pretty good relationship, and for the most part there was a huge spark between us the entire time we were together.
Ahh, you touch a subject at the very heart of PUA, this little gem is what distinguishes you from all the average dudes, if not for this it would just be throwing out lines and any monkey could do it.I am still wondering a couple things though.. If for whatever reason she starts acting awkward or distant, should I still push forward with Kino etc? Or back it off a bit?
You always have to be analyzing the situation and micro calibrating , for the sake of simplicity and not to get too technical you should just roll off if she gets distant and try it again later, maybe more subtle this time, rinse and repeat. If you do want to get technical though PM me and we'll get into details.
Call her, as in now. Be fun but quick and incise. Tell her you're picking her up on friday/saturday/sunday at X time and tell her to dress sharp. If she says she can't do it that day then suggest another, if she can't do it either and she doesn't suggest anything real she just flaked on you, so say "allright, another time" hang up and move on.The other thing is we haven't communicated since Saturday, I'm having trouble deciding when I should contact her.. We haven't talked about a time or a specific night yet, so my plan is to start the convo small and lead up to talking about meeting up this weekend.
After that its just a matter of keeping her a little interested until the date itself, sending her a text once every two days with something funny, don't make it a conversation, just one or two replies and then say you're way to busy for her. If you want ideas for these kinds of small texts PM me, that's pretty much it.
Lots of luck and do update
