Sick Game

I’ve stumbled (literally) across a school of game that is even more effective than hangover game: Sick game.

I met up with a buddy at a bar even though I was deep under the influence of a viral load. Cabin fever and the call of the wild coaxed me off my sofa. I warned him ahead of time that I would be absent as a wingman that night.

Coughing, sniffling, and hacking up loogies on the walk over, I dragged myself up to the roof deck and propped myself against the bar, or rather, leaned heavily against the bar to support my weakened body. Three girls situated themselves nearby. Even in my fuzzy mental state I knew a proximity indicator of interest when I saw one.

One of the girls was decent looking, but naturally I was in no mood to attempt her seduction. I just wanted to take in the spectacle, sip my ginger ale, and infect everyone with my contagious joy. But this girl moved closer and it would have been criminal of me to deny her the satisfaction of a proper gaming. So I opened her. Angrily.

“So what’s your deal?”

“My deal? This is my first time at this place.”

“Are those your friends over there?”

“Yes.” She waved at them and they wanly smiled back.

I growled. “Just make sure they don’t cockblock. I need space to sweep you off your feet.”

The seduction continued for fifteen minutes. My body language was… aloof. Sickly aloof. I don’t think I turned my head more than once to give her a sidelong glance. My mouth hung open taking in oxygen. My eyes were watery. My voice sounded muffled ricocheting off my phlegmy sinuses. I barely spoke, prefering to nod or give one word answers when she asked me questions. I didn’t smile once, not even when she tried to be funny. When she laughed, I didn’t laugh with her. When she thrust her impressive bosom in my face, I didn’t take notice. More than a few times I interrupted her conversation by coughing loudly into my hand. I allowed long, uncomfortable silences to linger when she ran out of things to say. Invariably, she would be the one to fumble frenetically for a topic to restart the conversation.

And after fifteen minutes? I number closed her. More precisely, I opened my phone and she grabbed it and punched in her number before I could even finish asking her for it.

Women are always saying they want men to “be themselves”. They want sincerity and candor. Well, nothing brings out the sincerity like sickness. I was truly “being myself”, my glorious, uncaring, indifferent, asshole self. And that’s the man that women love.

    You didn’t play up the “ohh I’m sick angle, poor me”, which didn’t allow her to play mommy. I bet that got her uterus doing jumping jacks.

  5. It’s interesting. Mystery says that one of the characteristics of the alpha male is to smile. I have found that being stoic works better. Iceberg Slim also mentioned that a few times in his book. Show emotions only rarely.

    [editor: smiling and stoicism don’t have to be mutually incompatible. Smiling works best in measured doses, as a way to establish self-assured alphness, but too much smiling and you’ll lose alpha points faster than david alexander steering a conversation into his favorite pasttime of wacking off to railfanning trannies.]

  11. The content of what you said there tows the line dangerously between the “caring asshole” (the asshole who acts out of spite, and whose goal is to piss OTHER people off) and the “uncaring asshole” (the asshole who acts out of indifference and narcissism, and whose goal is to ENTERTAIN HIMSELF).

    My genuine personality, and the way I always behaved around girls pre-game, was that of a caring asshole. All things equal (you’re not the good looking, aren’t social proofed, etc.) that shit really doesn’t work. I still slip back into it from time to time, and it only gets girls really mad at you.

    “So what’s your deal” is definitely a caring asshole’s opener. Those reading should use that kind of stuff sparingly, carefully, with delivery/body language that suggests something contrary to the hostility of your words.

  28. Roissy you might want to point out that one word game is useful and works best if you first establish interest, comfort and some attraction. Otherwise the one word game will backfire and she will stop engaging in conversation with you.

    At the start when you first approach, you usually have to (in order to have any shot at all) contribute at least 80-90% of the conversation. Now, one word game comes in use after you have already established rapport, and you want to come off like you can take her or leave her.

    A woman asking you questions, this is the biggest IOI you can get short of her forcing herself on you. Now, being the aloof badboy, evading the questions and creating an atmosphere of mysteriousness, that is the goal of one word game.

    The goal is NOT to go into a set, spit out a few words and then shut down – which I can see some people doing. These few will get rejected for not even having the basic social graces to involve oneself in a conversation.

    You could be just as uncarring, indifferent and occasionally glowering as you were when virally afflicted at that soiree, and positively repel girls.

    The lack of aloffness can definitely turn girls off. The mere fact of aloffness won’t attract them.

    It’s the combo of those things with your own knowledge and sure confidence that you ARE a player and can mad attract the hotties that does it. It’s not merely being an asshole, though you Roissy and to a lesser extent other PUA’s have made “asshole” into something of a term of art when used in a game context, it’s being a certain kind of asshole.

    For instance, some of our old college professors were treated with deference from ourselves, whereas if we met them in a bookstore, we would not give them the time of day. However, in the context of their classroom, they were the king and absolute ruler, so you took their shit. In a bar, club, bookstore, shopping mall, public park or similar venue, every reasonably well-dressed and coiffed human being can start every new encounter ostensibly as equals. Its like a new chance over-and-over again to present oneself as high status even if they are working behind the counter at K-mart.

    The hottest girl in the entire course sat next to me in a class and started babbling on and I totally ignored her because I was dead man walking.

    Grunts for answers. No answers at all. Didn’t look at her. Stared at the desk. She was all over me and halfway though her saying something I stood up and walked out without a word.

    We were in a computer course and she was one of the few girls in there so every guy there was generally all over her.

    Fast-forward to next week and I’ve recovered. Vague memories of dark curly hair and tight pink sweater. She comes into the same class and runs to me like those lions in that YouTube filmclip.

    And I screw it up by talking to her. Within five sentences she has almost completely lost interest. I’m with it enough to start ignoring her again and up comes the interest. But if I pay any attention, her attention vanishes.

    http://www.juliusevola.com/site/morality.txt

    http://www.juliusevola.com/site/media.txt

    [You might find these articles of interest to you.]

    Julius Evola was a prominent Ultra-Right Sicilian Traditionalist Aristocrat circa World War II who wrote about the failings of modern society, the rampant degradation of western civilization, intimate matters between men and women, race and tantric sex.

    In two of his most popular texts, “Ride the Tiger: A Survival Manual for the Aristocrats of the Soul” and “Men Among the Ruins: Post-War Reflections of a Radical Traditionalist”, he comes to the conclusion that the entirety of humanity has passed a threshold of any collective sanity and stable progress; The Aristocrat of the Soul, a man who is able to adapt to such circumstances and maintain an internal locus of control, should respond by engaging in a life of intense personal hedonism before everything turns to shit.

    I feel many of his views somewhat parallel your own as well as a few well-circulated commenters here.

    Like your writings, I enjoy reading Evola in part because he is able to style a perceived inflammatory remark in such a way that you feel the need to re-examine any offense you may take to it and WHY you may feel that way.

    Evola espouses some fallacies, come from a esoteric background, but I suspect you may find a few kindred views in his more lucid works.

I’m fairly good looking, but wouldn’t ever ‘beat’ him to a girl so to speak if he was as sharp as he could be.

    Anyhow it’s nice to see when the OP is directly about game, the thread doesn’t spiral into 300 posts about race or the economics of Poland or some shit, rather it stays focused.

  83. I’ve noticed that a guy with tight game can do no end of embarrassing things and still be able to attract a girl, even hack up a lung. If you’re doing it properly, the girl will feel more self-conscious about herself than be enlightened to your fallibilities.

    Hey Roissy, is your name from Story of O?

    [editor: yes. note that it is not a reference to sadomasochistic torture. it is a reference to soul-consuming love.]

    I’d add that the proper reference from literature would be the château of Roissy was the location where O received her early training in the service of a group of elite men which includes her lover René, prior to being handed over like much like a present, to a man described as a more dominant master so that she will learn to serve without question without it mattering whether it’s someone she does not love and who does not love her. It is commonly seen as the ultimate objectification of a woman, with even the principal character’s name interpreted to that end – orifice, object, essentially as “any hole” suffices. Where it states anything that indicates soul-consuming love as a independent concept, rather than one of the many assumptions left up to the reader to decide at the end as well as whether they believed Sir Stephen would really consent to O’s request to be granted death – not sure.

    It’s easy to see a person is capable of developing feelings for someone they have only just met – especially when they’re in a situation that puts that same person at the highest level of power over their life and daily experiences. The premise of the book isn’t to describe forced acts without consent that would be considered sadomasochistic torture, which can raise questions for debate as to whether torture should be used to describe the events at all. There was a follow-up effort to continue telling the story of O, which chronicles a return to Roissy and her life once there. However, it is not known whether this second novel was written by the original author of the Story of O.
    The above is quite unlike the Marquis de Sade’s “120 Days of Sodom”, which is truely about over-privileged men and their weakness for unrepentant and vulgar excesses that can only be considered hellish tortures for those people who are subjected to these men’s desires (which includes their own daughters, and a statement is made that they hadn’t started the un-natural acts of nastiness with these daughters only after bringing them to the castle in which the novel and its events were set and took place.) Though it’s important to note that the only survivor was one of the four daughters of the 4 main characters who had orchestrated the whole plan which would take 5 months from start to end, there was little plot outside of who and when and what that month of tortures was staged out from. The story of O may not be seen by the majority as a love story, it’s certainly more of one than anything Marquis de Sade wrote, though the two have been grouped in the same category.

  89. I think “sick game” would be a useful subfield for chronically ill or disabled men to develop, particularly those who find their endurance in normal social situations (10pm-2am @ the club) limited. I’ve had to become wholly feral as a result, and constructing relationships where you hold all the power and the woman comes to you when you desire, only for what you desire, does not strike me as a wholesome means to this end. It does not matter if the reason you two are not “active” for ordinary couple’s stuff is because your joints hurt in the sun, or if traveling is tiring for you because it must be done by bus, someone who doesn’t get her “relationship” needs met is going to feel like an exploited booty call. The key would be to attract hot women who WANT a booty call relationship, but there you run afoul of the body/masculinity expectations hot women have, which very few ill/disabled men naturally meet. Game, once again, the great liberator.

  91. Other types of game to try:

    Insomnia Game (stay up all night and game the next day)
    Hungry Game (don’t eat all day)
    Pump Game (do a monster workout and immediately game)
    Pain Game (drop a brick on your head)
    Jerk Off Game (jerk off in the bathroom at the bar and then game — try it with and without cumming)

    I’ve done the first two.

    Changing your body chemistry changes your mental chemistry. When you’re sick you don’t give a fuck.

  92. LILGRL,

    I used to have a boyfriend who didn’t believe in pre-marital sex until I corrupted him. I understood where he was coming from religiously, but I mostly empathized with his plight. He wanted to do it; he was just plagued with religious guilt and an excessively moral upbringing.

    I think it’s a bit odd that the tradition persists in Western societies when marriage is occurring much, much later. It has to breed some hostility or aggression (redirected sexual energy). Also, it’s a principle of the thing: I can’t respect couples who are opposed to pre-marital sex, but will do everything else that lies outside vaginal intercourse.
