Thursdays Rule

In the quest to uncover any hidden patterns in my dating experiences that might help me streamline operations, I’ve done a back of the cocktail napkin calculation of the total number of girls I’ve dated that led to intimate relations, assorted by which days I first met those girls.  I wanted to see if some days were better for meeting a slutty sexually responsive pool of available women.

Obviously, having a good memory is a factor in this analysis, but as a man I found it a lot easier to remember the exact day I met a girl I would eventually bang than it is to remember, for example, my niece’s name.

The following table shows the percentage of total intimacies by the day of the week that the successful pickup first began.

Day of First Meet                 Percent of Total Lays
Monday                                       5%
Tuesday                                      10%
Wednesday                                  0%  (!)
Thursday                                    30%
Friday                                         25%
Saturday                                     15%
Sunday                                        15%

I was a bit surprised by Wednesday’s goose egg.  Maybe this is dumb coincidence or faulty memory, or hump day (behold irony) is a black hole of suckage for meeting girls.  Is Wednesday Desperate Housewives night?  I wouldn’t know.

Friday’s results were predictable as more single girls go out on that night than any other by my guess, providing a richer target environment, but Saturday put up a less than stellar showing.  For all its pomp and circumstance as a great hookup night, Saturday actually blows.  It’s a date night for one, and the hordes of desperate men who didn’t meet anyone Friday night give it the old college try again on Saturday, smothering the good vibes with their massive sausage invasion.

Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday have been good considering their reputations as lonely barfly nights devoid of girls, but two things I’ve learned over the years are that any girl going out on an off-night is seriously looking to hook up (double hookup points if she braves it on a rainy weeknight) and logistics are favorable for you to take a girl home that night because weeknight venue patrons are more likely to be local.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that the venues aren’t swarming with drunk Axe-wearing clones.  Just be sure to avoid those bars that cater to the kickball flip cupper crowd.

For some reason, a lot of European women go out for drinks on Sundays and Mondays.

Thursday gets crowned Notch Night of the Week.  It has the best mix of quality and quantity, with just enough of a scene to make things interesting, yet suitably laid back to appeal to the types of women who don’t parade around clubs holding their girlfriend’s hands like circus elephants.  This is one of the great advantages to living in the city — rolling out on a Thursday night is not such a chore.

Conclusion:  there is selective filtering in action based on day of the week.  Quieter nights will have fewer opportunities, but the leads are stronger.  Busier nights have more opportunities, but on average they are weaker.  The best night is the one that strikes a balance between numbers and receptiveness.

Day game is limited to Saturday and Sunday, so unless you are unemployed and can spend all week trolling for other unemployed girls, it’s pointless to draw any lessons from the number of girls you have picked up during the daytime.


  1. Suicide Blond and I were just deciding which night to go out this week/weekend, and Thursday seemed to be the best choice. Crap – now I have to shave my legs.

    Just as long as you don’t shave, you know, anything else.

    I don’t care what’s supposedly “fashionable.” I am 100% convinced that much of the male preference for shaved women is pedophilic in nature.


  2. freckles i did a chart of my best hook up nights.. and umm.. we are chicks….so… any time…is miller time….. sooo pressure


  3. Suicide Blond and I were just deciding which night to go out this week/weekend, and Thursday seemed to be the best choice. Crap – now I have to shave my legs. Thanks.


  4. Suicide blond has the IQ and morals of a toenail.

    And unemployed chicks are hot. Or at least easy.


  5. “thirsty thursday” is a money hookup night b/c of the work factor. typically you just want to drink and forget about work. and happy hour means drinking starts earlier. girls should be going to irish bars and guys should be hitting wine or champagne serving establishments to increase odds of hooking up.


  6. Now that we got the days of week figured out, what is your hook-up frequency data when it comes to the time of year? For me, girls are hornier and looking for action in the Spring months, especially March/April. Why i don’t know. Mating season?


  7. xavier – i was just talking about this with a friend. early spring and early fall, plus right before christmas.

    most breakups happen in august.


  8. i’ve found off nights, by that I mean Sun-Wednesday to be my most successful one night stand pulling nights. fri/sat has never been prime time for me. i ran a social experiement where i bet that within every 7 girls i met/got a number from I’d fuck at least one….and the average proved true.


  9. I’m amazed you are able to keep this detailed of records. When I look back at my knocks, besides the most recent 5, I have no clue usually.
