I first got in the game back in 2007 with the mystery method and within four months, I was good because I went out almost everyday. I met a girlfriend within 1 year, moved in with her and pretty much forgot about game. We split up in January 2015 after she cheated on me. I guess I had become a chaud/AFC...so much for regressing. Anyway, I'm back now and even considering taking a bootcamp just to start it off with a bang. What made me decide to come back to game is I came back with this Japanese chick from a club last week and the old me would have been able to close her. Come back home with her at 5am, she sits on my sofa looking all timid, im also timid to move in. I hesistantly lean in for kiss and I realise im probably too drunk to even initiate a proper kiss. Rather than carry her off to my bed, i ask to stay, she cant because she stays with a host family as a foreign student. The old me would have f closed her right there and then but I didn't, instead I got her phone number, call a taxi and bum. Ive tried texting her to rearrange another meet but shes gone cold. There is nothing I hate more than near misses! They really do my head in. This is what made me realise that im missing the killer instinct that I used to have back in the day. Any advice appreciated if anyone has been in this situation.
