Is There Ever A Time Not To Game?

Discount bin answer: Never.

Gamers’ Edition Bonus Pak answer: It depends.

I was at a small-ish film fest party for a guy who directed a couple of short documentaries. Crowd size: ~80-100 peeps, skewed toward women, most of whom were cute artsy scenesters who liked to wear woolen caps and scarves indoors. Because, you know, it might snow.

Three girls, all 7s, approached me and my friend to ask if we were “part of the creative scene”.

Clearly, a significant subculture of the residents are starving for the company of unconventional people who aren’t yuppie whores. And so, I give them that. I aim to please.

After a few minutes of light chit chat about my latest blockbuster mega-grossing film, I felt the energy of the set wane. They were slipping away. Girls are born with a self-entitlement region of the brain that causes them to assume all men were put on the earth to continually entertain them. This region is connected to the pussy through a single major nerve called the tingleginaceptor. When the pussy deteriorates through age, so does the entitlement region of the female brain. This is why many older women are so engaging in conversation; they have to be.

A player adept at seducing women knows to flip this entitlement script and demand entertainment from the women in his company. Game is the tool that helps with the script-flipping. But this time I ran no game. Instead, I let the chit chat dissipate, smiled warmly, and told them to enjoy the show.

I could’ve made fun of one of the girl’s scarves (“That scarf is all wrong on you”). I could’ve negged the hottest girl (“You look like the girl in the movie who got dumped by the guy. Are you her? Well, chin up”). I could’ve kinoed, isolated, made out. But I did none of these things. Why?

Because in certain specific contexts, I believe game can backfire. This was one of those times. A small, insular indie scene such as at a film screening, filled with people who likely are friends, or at least acquaintances, with everyone else in the room, and who have certain social codes that they follow and are only understood by themselves (e.g. don’t be a douchebag) are more apt to react suspiciously to game run on them by a relative outsider. (I do hang in the indie scene, but not this particular one.)

My spidey sense was telling me that had I negged one of the girls in the three set, it would have confused her. And not in a good way. Tightknit groups of people tend to want to feel newcomers out, to see if they’re cool, i.e. socially savvy. A neg right out of the gate might have tingled ginas, but it also ran the risk of emphasizing my outsider status. It’s best to demonstrate your in-group cred first before hitting them up with the thermonuclear love bomb of game. With very provincial groups, this getting-to-know-you process can sometimes require attendance at three or more events where you’ll see the same girls and they’ll have an opportunity to become comfortable with you. Blogger happy hours used to work this way.

There is a trade-off to every decision. The girl who interested me may not ever again go to one of these events. Or she may have been sufficiently bored by the non-game “normal” conversation between us to write me off as a future contender. If I had properly gamed her, I had a chance to initiate the short road to intimacy. But gaming her also posed the risk of stamping me persona non grata within the scene, possibly polluting my chances with other girls who knew my primary target peripherally.

Pickup is about experience. After enough time and practice, you’ll get a feel for these kinds of social riddles. But all in all, I prefer this rule of thumb —

Maxim #13: When in doubt, game.

  6. Gaming in tight social circles has its own rules. It can also be tougher to get girls out alone that you will run into on a regular basis. In a bar, they may never see you again if you don’t agree to meet up, so they have to make their decision now. But if you’re in the same social circle, you’ll always be around to entertain her. Therefore you must master the art of the subtle takeaway and be seen talking to other girls. You need to create a buzz among the female members of the group.

    One of my frustrations with the many game instructional products I’ve read is that they all focus on anonymous venues, such as clubs and malls. But, I spend most of my time at social-circle venues where people share a common interest and many know each other.

    Adapting the principles of game to social-circle events is difficult because I never know how aggressive to be. I usually err on the side of being non-aggressive and leave empty handed.

    Yeah, this is pretty much it.

    It’s one thing when guys with social problems use game to enter the world of serial monogamy that had previously been closed to them. It’s hard not to see that as increasing human happiness in a general way for both the guys and the girls they become involved wit. But using it to become a manipulative manwhore is another.

    People generally disapprove of public free-riding and that’s what PUA’s are all about. To be good at it, you essentially have to kill anything like a conscience and stop seeing people as people but as raw material to be manipulated to your will.

  33. Wilbur, Chuck,
    I say its always better to “Go Big” rather than to “Go Home”, UNLESS you’re not in Game Mode to begin with. Which was the case with Roissy here, or when I’m hanging out with my buds at the club or bar-I never pick gals up in places like that, so I’m not in active Game Mode. On the off chance if something happens, great, if not, great. That’s not the reason why I’m there. Now, if you’re in a situation like that, you got nothing to worry about. Otherwise, always make the move. Even if you fail, Women will respect you for having balls.

    As for Funeral Game, maybe I wasn’t clear-ANYWHERE there are Men and Women, the Game is ON. Who says you can’t pickup a gal at a Homgoing Service?

  47. Girls are born with a self-entitlement region of the brain that causes them to assume all men were put on the earth to continually entertain them. This region is connected to the pussy through a single major nerve called the tingleginaceptor. When the pussy deteriorates through age, so does the entitlement region of the female brain.

    I was discussing this with a client last week. Girls of a certain ilk give themselves way more credit than they deserve. The entitlement mentality can poison Game when the pua is actively targeting ass, and – strangely – even when he isn’t.

    The sense of undeserved entitlement forces even casual, neutral convo to degenerate into “oh, he wants to fuck me, so I’m going to make him qualify.” This happens on the internetz – even the Girlgame grrls do it constantly, but of course they’d deny even the obvious. The girls’ knee-jerk qualifying of a neutral male is the direct result of her being unable to turn her game off . She’s been conditioned to run game constantly as an indicator of her worth. If she’s not running game, she’s like a shark that stops moving and dies. Certain females are attention-seeking automatons needing constant reinforcement of their social value.

    We discerning men have no need to run game constantly. Discretionary men see the image of their self-worth as stable and immutable – they game as they see fit and separate game from the self image of their social value. The Constantly Gaming Female sees Game as indicative of her self worth. She inextricably has this connected to how she values her very being. For example, if they feel a lack of attention, they’ll do something – anything – to re-establish the status quo, even opening strangers if even for a moment’s entertainment.

    There’s no understanding amongst bimbos.

    [editor: all true. and why is this? it all goes back to the differences between men’s and women’s market value. women’s dating market value, tied up as it is almost entirely in their youth and beauty, has a shorter expiration date than men’s, and so they are genetically conditioned to seek validation of their attractiveness through constant gaming and attention whoring. men, otoh, don’t feel this need for validation as intensely as do women because men’s time horizons for nailing down a good deal in the sexual market are longer. men have more calendar days to mellow into their high status.]

  53. Here’s a decent evopsych-based article from Psychology Today, elaborating on the huge downside risk staring women’s hypergamous impulse in the face, which Roissy talked about last week:

    Do Married Women Want Their Husbands to Cheat?

    “The more likely her husband is to remain sexually faithful to her, the less desirable he is (and the greater the probability that perhaps she could have done much better than him).”

    And this gem:

    “There is a surefire way to guarantee that their husband will never cheat on them, and that is to marry the biggest loser that they can find so that nobody else would want him.”

    Nothing groundbreaking of course, but nice confirmation from the academic realm. The piece also offers a handy one-paragraph explanation for why polygynous desire exists in men.

    Of course, its completely and utterly foolish for a man to even attempt to explain this to most women — but particularly one you’re fucking. Believe me, I’ve tried. In the mind of such a woman, nearly any explanation, no matter how scientific or logical, is just a florid excuse. Because women are so adept at the twin arts of rationalization and self-deception, they view most any discussion of evolutionary biology explaining male behavior through the prism of justification and bullshit. Her IQ and level of education won’t much affect this.

    [editor: if anything, her high IQ will make her self-justifying bullshit that much more believable to her.]

    It would be nice once for a woman to say “Ah, that makes sense. While I don’t like it because my own evolutionarily-designed behavioral suite is 180° out of phase with this, I accept its logic, and think this makes life interesting and beautiful.”

  56. I’m surprised at this post. I almost thought it was an April Fool’s post–albeit 6 months and 22 days late. Really? A 100-person film fest party can be a wrong time to game?

    If one takes the broadest definition of game: correctly flipping the tacit social cues that regulate opposite-sex attraction (pardon that’s my own, quickly-thought swag), then I don’t see how one needs to “turn it off”; I don’t see how game, rightly played or correctly calibrated, can truly “backfire.”

    What you’re describing is a tribe-stranger encounter. The outsider or interloper to the tribe is rightly viewed with suspicion at first. Once his motives are determined as safe, then the tribe can let its guard down and accept the outsider. But until then, the outsider has everything to prove socially, everything to gain by generating attraction and showing he can contribute to the tribe.

    Brought down to this film-fest situation, I don’t see the harm, and in fact see quite a benefit, in, say, throwing a scarf neg and generating attraction. The key difference in this situation from a normal club, however, is all in the calibration and how far you take it. Your objective here definitely isn’t to get the F-close, not even the kiss-close, not to isolate, and who knows… perhaps not even to number close–if your spider sense has set your hair on end. But negs along with your banter and some socially ambiguous kino, seems entirely appropriate. The objective in all this is to whet the appetite for a NEXT and future encounter once the tribe’s defenses are down.

    As it is now, the girls ended the exchange without interest–and may even harbor DISinterest. The energy waned. The girls slipped away on THEIR volition.

    Far better would be to flip it around. After the banter, story telling, negs, etc., you could’ve exited with a not-so-false time-constraint. (“Hey, I’ve REALLY got to get back to my friends now. See you around. [and, in fact, leave]). Or drop a comment that you’ve got your girlfriend waiting, blah, blah. That is, you’d end it on YOUR terms with THEM wanting more, not because the energy waned or because they got bored.

    In situations like these, there’s got to be a way to show you’re an interesting guy and generate interest in a further meeting, all without poisoning the well.

    So true. And Firepower’s assessment is spot-on as well.

    But I can tell you after many years of marriage, there’s an element of this that doesn’t go away–or at least hasn’t yet–and that always attempts to re-assert itself. I swear it’s something embedded deep in the female psyche.

If you can show woman how they can achieve what they desire while giving you what you desire (same thing) then your good. Show them how to be free of having to do it all and switch over to just managing it all with their main focus being to take care of their mans dick and happiness. Then they get to have kids and plenty of time to take care of them. Plenty of money to do whatever. Plenty of time to hang out with family and stress free. Plenty of time to fuck in every concievable way.

  75. The hate from women on Silvio reminds me that the french had it right: there is a thin line between love and hate.

    I recently listened to an NPR interview between Terry Gross (“Miss NPR”) and Gene Simmons of KISS. It was up on T Ricky Raw’s “The Rawness” site linked to by Roissy.

    The interview is very hostile—Gross, a hard left wing feminazi, is prepared, under her plastic pleasantness, to quietly murder Simmons for his sex-laced speech. But what struck me is how Simmons works.

    Simmons works her in 2 ways, which should be required rules for people who want Game.

    First, he lets her know from the start and constantly throughout that he views sex, and sex from her, as his goal. This immediately makes sure Gross knows that he isn’t interested in being her friend, only the guy who fucks her. This immediately cuts off any LJBF motions by Gross—Simmons plainly states that he will welcome her with open arms if she welcomes him with open legs.

    Also by doing this it puts sex on Gross’s mind. Just ahving her think about it puts the option in play.

    Second, he escalates her emotions. When she keeps disapproving of his sex-thoughts and sex-talk, he turns on the insults and sex-talk more, heightening her emotion. As the French say, the line is thin—-even if she is disgusted and angered by his actions, that anger and disgust can be flipped to lust quickly, and much more easily than, say, if she felt nothing but cold logic about him.

    Gene Simmons is da man.

    I certainly don’t believe in being in full on game mode all the time when I’m with any group of people. There’s more relaxed socializing when your just interested in networking with people, men and women but often more men, learning what their experiences have been, swapping stories. Sure opportunistic teasing of attractive girls and flirting with them is good, but always working all rooms with that mostly in mind — no thanks.

    Why do so much work all the time for the girlies? They’re by no means always worth it. You’re not their entertainment poodle. Or why show your asshole side all the time?

    Still it’s good and fun and edgie to pretty much always be opportunistically ready to game a hot or interesting enough girl.

    blockquote>Magic Pussy Syndrome (MPS) … is the belief that because a woman has a pussy, she is entitled to special privileges at other people’s expense. Such as: free drinks, free dinner, alimony, child support. The list goes on. In contrast, most guys we know pay for everything, and at retail prices.

    Moral: never pay retail.

    The sense of entitlement is very much culturally created or at least greatly heightened and shaped in the feminist Anglosphere.

    The sense of it being something to bargain with is what’s innate. The terms of the exchange and his right to other options or not is not.

    Hence the first wave feminist campaigns against prostitution. And to make male adultery, previously pretty much accepted as something most successful and some not so successful men do, so long as it was discrete and not notorious, an acceptable reason for female initiated divorce with the right of support from her ex husband. That battle was only fully won by first wave feminists in the early 20th century, and largely began in the later 19th.

    Then second wave feminists did away with the duty of a wife to give her husband reasonable amounts of sex, while making marriage an equal partership (business partnership with the wive always entitled to a 50/50 split no matter how well the husband alone did) to pay out as such and more if her pussy entitlement rights were breached in any way and then if she just felt like it, and wanted a no fault divorce payout.

    All of these were Anglosphere feminist initiates to raise the bargaining power and entitlement of American pussy over men in marriage. None of them are culturally and sometimes not legally embraced nearly so much in non Anglosphere countries including today.

  82. Let’s face it, the disadvantage most men running game have in an insular circle is that your alpha credentials have already gone through pre-screening. If you don’t possess the geniune high status as defined by the group then running game makes you look like an interloper. You can bullshit but if you really haven’t genuinely produced something that elevates your status in that group then you’ll be at an enormous disadvantage. Usually, for parties where you’re an outsider its wiser to take a date or gf. At a minimum you demonstrate social proof. In a circle where everyone already knows you beforehand or has heard of you by reputation alone (as an artist, benefactor, owner, director, whatever) you’ll be free to do as you please. However, you’ll find that all that is necessary is the most minimal game.

  87. The latest efforts of the left against Silvio Berlusconi, linked above:

    More than 100,000 women have signed a petition saying they are offended by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi — an initiative launched by a newspaper [Italy’s leading paper of the left which has been on a long standing campaign to defeat him politically by attacking his private life and macho success with women] after the premier made a sexist remark to an opposition politician.

    Berlusconi, 73, made the jab during a call in to a late-night talk show Oct. 7 that featured, among other guests, Rosy Bindi, a 58-year-old former minister who dresses conservatively, wears glasses and has short, gray hair.

    “You are always more beautiful than intelligent,” Berlusconi told her. She snapped back: “I’m not one of the women at your disposal.”

    Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/n/a/2009/10/22/international/i102629D50.DTL&tsp=1#ixzz0Ui0uArMc

    How utterly absurd. First her retort – when did Berlesconi say or imply she was at his disposal. Pure deflection. Instead he was belittling her on two fronts, including the attractiveness one. She isn’t. Looks like a stereotypical mid fifties dyke.

    This from feminists who’ve taken to holding thumb and forefinger an inch apart, in response to someone who’s arguments are angering them – belittling his equipment (which they’ve almost always never seen, and it wouldn’t matter if it were well above average anyway, they’d still likely do it.)

    Men should embrace the claim of being “sexist” or at least not regard it as some powerfully damning charge. Like misogynist it’s used anytime a man says or does anything feminists don’t like and isn’t instantly apologetic. It’s used against any man who thinks that men and women are intrinsically different in important personality, motivational and other ways. It’s certainly used against any man who acts dominant over women in ways the charging woman doesn’t like.

    It’s used against any who attack any tenants of feminism. Then after sucking in someone that way they will be claimed to either “hate women” or “not respect women” or “think all men are superior in all important ways” over women – all without evidence other than that in some way he’s not down with feminist ideology.

    By some of those definitions I’m most definitely sexist. Yet I think women are just as valuable as men overall.

    Doug, excellent points about Feminine Entitlement. I’ve been going back and forth w/a few buds about Oprah and her “war” on Hip Hop. Like many other Black Women, she claims to take issue with it because it supposedly puts Black Women as a whole down. Yet, she has no problem having someone like Karrine Steffans on her show to hawk her books, all the while claiming that she was “abused as a child”. Yea, riiiiight…

    Its pure Hypocrisy101, so blatant and in your face even Oprah’s own fans had to point it out to her via her website. Yet, Steffans is the “victim” while the rappers are the “aggressors”. Rubbish.

    Ruby, there are some significant differences btw Gaming Blac & White Women. Generally speaking, w/Black Women, you need to look really good and have them attracted FIRST before you really start saying anything. At that point, you just don’t wanna screw things up when you start talking. W/White Women, it’s more about witty banter and the usual stuff you read about Game. One reason why I think not many Brothas actually write about it is because a lot of what Black Men do isn’t something you can necessarily breakdown on a flowchart the way you can say, the Mystery Method. Its more about style, timing, that sort of thing.

    As for style, I would say you gotta experiment until you hit a good groove. Try to have what you wear match the person you are on the inside, then crank it up a notch or two. You strike me as a more conservative guy, so you,re going to have to liven it up a bit in order to snag the more livelier gals. This is tricky-not lively enough and you could look a bit too bland; too over the top and you’ll be incongruent, which is a serious No-No. So that’s something you gotta work on and experiment with a bit. Getting a Hired Gun can help in this regard, too.

    Hope this helps, any other questions, holla.

    Yes I know she says that.

    How could she say anything otherwise publicly to the wide world and maintain status in feminist female empowerment “Hollywood” LA, at least when the nature of open that Gene is saying is one way open. That’s in fact what she eventually says without it being completely unambiguous on Family Jewels. They obviously worked on the ambiguity.

    That’s their way of making it out there and part of his bad boy rock star sex object (for aging gen Xers anyway) image, but still deniable so that it again becomes discrete re her rep among her crowd.

    My guess is that the actual facts are somewhere in between. Yes he does get outside groupie etc. sex still since living with her but not nearly as much as he claims. She is unlikely to police it but does police being humiliated about it or his getting emotionally involved with anyone else. Like i said, my guess.

  110. This post kind of touches at what I would call Outsider Game.

    Often, if you are a guy outside of a given social/cultural/racial circle, the odds are stacked against you. However, once you break into the bubble and get some measure of social proof, you instantly become more interesting than every other guy in the room.

    The harder it is to break into the circle, the more rewarding it is to break into it.

    Easy example is a white guy at a black party. Apologies to G, but never roll dolo to these… instead have a girl (wait make that two) on the arm. After a minute or two, let them go mingle and watch how intrigued the other girls are by a white guy all of the sudden.

    This is why some older guys can absolutely crush even younger versions of themselves. Yes most older guys can’t hang with the young crowd. However, the few that stay in it have established social proof that the young and hungry just can’t touch. The 50+ guy at the upscale lounge who’s holding court with a couple of models will absolutely take your girl if he wants her. When you see a guy with a girl and say, “WTF?” most girls are saying (subconsciously), “he must have it going on somehow.”

    All you gotta do is take the scene and throw it to the fourth power and suddenly your negative is a huge positive. Easier said than done in some cases though. I’m sure some of the others on here have other examples of this powerful technique.

  123. “Hey Roissy can you do a post about gaming or PU when you are in a small social circle etc? ”

    Small social circle game, in my experience, is the easiest game to play. It’s so easy it’s barely “game” (very passive, in any sense.)

    The essential element is getting “in” — DHV to acceptance (intelligence, sense of humor, in-group aesthetic values, etc.) Insider status establishes social proof and potential access to all the females of the group.

    (Roissy’s instincts were right on here — there’s absolutely no point in rushing IF you’ll see all these people again and again.)

    If you’ve played it cool and get group acceptance, you will get a shitload of IOIs from the available women in the group. At that point you can escalate and elicit competition among them.

    Social circle game is the best, the easiest, and the least stressful. Work smart, not hard.

    Because these circles tend to be less dynamic than most environments, there’s little need to rush game.

    It seems like your “negrophobia” is a fear of or contempt for black females. Are they too inferior for you? Some Momma shame going on?

    “-phobia” is probably not the best suffix to use, but Ruby raises a valid point.

    Consider:
    Asian girls have an easy time finding white men. On the other hand, Asian girls (who are not 8+) can sometimes have an excruciatingly hard time finding white men who don’t have yellow fever fetish. I.e., white men who will actually think of them as women first and Asian women second, rather than the obverse.
    Ask ANY Asian woman how often she’s had to contend with “I love Asian women” as a pickup line.

    In exactly the same vein, black men have an easy time finding non-black women, but they can sometimes have an excruciatingly hard time finding non-black women who don’t have “jungle fever”. I.e., non-black women who will actually think of them as men first and black second, rather than the obverse.
    Ruby is likely one of these, especially if his milieu is one in which blacks are rare, and even more so if he’s a newcomer to that milieu.

    On the other hand, it is also possible that he’s just obsessed with white women. But that’s not where I would place my bet.

  137. Ruby,
    All interesting questions, its just that I’ve never really given all that much thought, lol. And maybe therein lies your problem: YOU’RE THINKING TOO MUCH. Although there are some important differences in terms of dealing w/differing Women, in the end, its still about Male/Female attraction, you either have that or you don’t. For the vast majority of Men, they have to get the gal attracted, and then build on it (comfort) and then take it from there. So in a way it really doesn’t matter what the race or culture the gal is, if she ain’t attracted to you from the jump, it’s all moot anyway.

    As for clothing, again, you gotta experiment. The best thing to do is wear clothes that best speaks to who you are *or aspire to be* on the inside. If there’s a “sticking point” for a lot of guys, in my view that has to be it. The idea of congruence is big because Women have an evolved sense about these sort of things. Wearing clothes that aren’t “you” is a big no-no, as are doing or saying things that come off as natural.

    As I’ve said before, I’m Urban, but NOT Ghetto. Now, what do I mean by that? Well, I mean, you won’t EVER see me wearing the following:

    -Flatbill Charlie Brown style baseball caps
    -Saggy jeans w/my underwear/behind hanging out
    -Shirts or jackets that are 3, 4 or 5X (example: Polo shirts buttoned all the way up, etc)
    -Dickies other than for work
    -Sneakers or Timberland boots as standard footwear (on occasion, OK)
    -Sweatsuits (Again, on occasion, like say, twice a year, if that)

    What I DO wear, regularly, are the following:

    -Lots of leather: scooter jackets (think Wolverine), car coats, etc.
    -Jeans that actually fit with a belt
    -Boots other than Timberland (looks nice w/my bootcut jeans), shoes-ALWAYS w/a spit shine
    -Scarves, hats & gloves (Just bought two “porkpie” styles and a few “Andy Capp” style caps; gonna go grab up a few more skimmers to go w/my suits-think Steve Harvey). I prefer keffiyahs-I am Muslim afterall-and they really look nice on me
    -Suits (I’m in the process of rebuilding my wardrobe, but at one time I had more than 30)

    And so on.

    I tend to shop at more what I define as “urban but not ghetto” shops, such as Express For Men, American Eagle, Aldo, and certain local Men’s boutiques. Like I said, you gotta experiment. If you’re on a budget, and who aint these days, start small, w/say, some basic slacks & shirts. Nothing fancy, in fact when in doubt, keep it simple. Being neat and spiffy almost always works.

    [1] “Negrophobia” is the initial subtle fear of large black men in physical proximity.

    I don’t think a lot of people are consciously aware of their physical reactions when I, or other large black men, come near them (stuttering, shaking, Fight-or-Flight body language and eye movement, overcompensating for perceived possible aggressiveness by acting tough or apathetic, etc.), rather it is programmed by bad experiences in school or areas in inner cities where various cultures are juxtaposed with each other.

    I’m just seeking to disarm this effect as quickly and efficiently as possible while still appearing Alpha [NOT socially prostrating myself before that person to comfort them] and not appearing too aggressive or intimidating.

    [2] I highlight upper [middle] class Latinas and Asian girls as examples because they tend to have beauty, styles, cultures and personalities that I find endearing but they and their friends exhibit ‘negrophobia’the most extremely, literally shutting down an approach before it even starts.

    Working class Latinas that I’ve come across seem to love me [I’m guessing it is a mixture of my “Dad”-like personality [vs. the Cad aspect, which I suppose I should develop] which appeals to their cultural pro-patriarchal views and my deep voice and patient aloofness.]. Asians, still, not so much.

    Trust me, none of this has to do with black women; Just with my personal self-improvement… And a love of lithe, petite women of all ethnicities.

    That’s no more a phobia than your own discomfort with homosexual men approaching you is “homophobia”. If you aint interested in having gay sex and gays are approaching you you might start “shutting down” too.

    JB– Small social circle game, in my experience, is the easiest game to play. It’s so easy it’s barely “game” (very passive, in any sense.)

    The essential element is getting “in” — DHV to acceptance (intelligence, sense of humor, in-group aesthetic values, etc.) Insider status establishes social proof and potential access to all the females of the group.

    I agree it is very easy to game closed groups where everyone knows everyone, or lots know lots within the social group anyway. Well it becomes incredibly easy to keep success piling up once you get it started.

    The thing to keep in mind about small social circle game is that you are GOING to get a reputation. Your job is to shape it. You don’t want to minimize it, or downplay it, actually. You want to maximize it. For maximum scoring you want your reputation to be as a rake, but an honest one. Great in bed. Your self explanation should be that you’re “looking for love” but exploring different girls and kinds of girls while looking, “‘til the “we totally click mutually deep and heavy thing happens”. I.e. no you’re not a loyal safe bet but you offer the chance of true deep love with the guy the other girls want, for good reason. The crap shoot of that. You’re not about settling but passion. Chick crack. (I’m describing my thinking and presentation pre the days of formal game, as such, or alpha and beta terminology.)

    Because these circles tend to be less dynamic than most environments, there’s little need to rush game.

    Maybe so. But rushing it will turbo charge your bad but fun boy rep. In tight groups it becomes increasingly easy to game, and more and more arrogantly. Which works even better. I developed a “terrible” reputation for loving and leaving them in my first year at (a top) law school. But I was gentle about it. But moved on despite tears. Ended up doing all but a small handful of the 7 and up girls in my class by second year, heavily during the pressure cooker of 1L.

    Law school was where I REALLY realized that girls could react with irritation and genuine anger to my semi or very non PC arrogance (while others would melt immediately to the same thing), but those same feminist pissed girls would later flirt and suck up to me. Invitation for more negging of course. I suppose my game was in some ways quite crude then but it got stronger and stronger. Nothing like being able to just shrug shoulders and know that if that girl wasn’t buying it another would. (Which tended to make them nearly all buy it after awhile, if sometimes secretly.)

    The law library is actually a dynamite place to pick up law school chicks. Relief from the druggery. Shooting fish in a barrel really. Great disapproval that I wouldn’t let them study and would never be serious anyway. Just completely ignore the disapproval and accusations, well answer the accusation with the above “totally click line” but keep teasing her regardless, in increasingly sexual ways.

    Course it helped that I was one of the guys who sat in the back row with a soon tight group of smart but rebellious male (and one female tomboy) friends, but was really good when called upon/challenged in that 1L way. Sometimes without having read the material (sometimes), but being legal reasoning insightful about the case/dilemma anyway (cause it did come easy to me). DHV for law chicks obviously.

    Girls would call me a sexist masher or yeah even “sexist pig” (“maybe but I’m an adorable pig don’t you think? And hey not even a little fat. And REAL tall.” “God you’re full of yourself”. “You noticed? Maybe you could be full of me too, if you were nicer to me. Maybe.”), and then secretly step out with me behind their bf’s backs. (“I have a boyfriend.” “I heard. I won’t tell him if you won’t. You can consider me a strictly no obligation trial run.”)

    Step out as in ask if they could come over and “study” at my place etc. “Can you cook?” was a good rejoinder.

    Her “No.” (feminist lawyer bitches)

    D: “then no” (No I didn’t manage to say this the first time I got the no answer. I did the second. I was teaching myself.)

    Her: “I can try. I can do some simple things.” (gold, obviously)

    As for libertarians: they all need to go read Burke, because every last one of them is a semi-autistic dimwit who doesn’t understand how human beings are. Freedom comes from discipline and orderly society: not from fighting “social pathologies like patriarchy and nationalism.”

  163. Doug:

    “The thing to keep in mind about small social circle game is that you are GOING to get a reputation. Your job is to shape it. You don’t want to minimize it, or downplay it, actually. You want to maximize it. For maximum scoring you want your reputation to be as a rake, but an honest one.”

    100% Agreed.

    Since, in groups such as these there are rarely any secrets, you want to push through a rakish devil-may-care persona. As long “it ain’t no thing” to you, most of the girls will not care either.

  164. “Maybe so. But rushing it will turbo charge your bad but fun boy rep. In tight groups it becomes increasingly easy to game, and more and more arrogantly. Which works even better.”

    If you’re saying you did this at law school, that’s a slightly different situation, because of automatic status/ pre-selection. I’m referring to meeting someone who introduces you to a group of people. In such cases, group acceptance is needed before the doors to pussy open up. Groups tend to test you to see if you “belong.”

  165. This post was the longest rationalization for pussying out that I’ve ever read.

  166. I think you need to be subtle enough so that you aren’t making anyone uncomfortable, but ‘game’ is just the application of psychological insight. If you apply it appropriately to the situation you can certainly increase your appeal. An obvious ‘neg’ in this situation is not appropriate. For one thing its a somewhat more sophisticated crowd and the best known arrow in the PUA quiver is the ‘neg’. Any obvious ‘neg’ would set off the alarms of any literate person who’s ever read a magazine article about the PUA communiity or seen the VH1 show or read a review of The Game. If you’re not in the mood to ‘run game’ then don’t but it always works if done with the appropriate subtlety and tact.

    I think there’s a certain gap between rank-and-file and elite libertarians (like the Reason staff, Megan McArdle and this equalist 3rd waver), which is what you’re describing. These idiots rolled out the carpet for Dear Leader in the ’08 election, which in my mind, forever disqualifies them from being taken seriously as intellectual leaders on any topic.

    It’s interesting to observe that she got quite a hostile response in the comments.
