Field Reports

lion-chasing-gazelle

For the past three years of The Rational Male there’s been a consistent presence in the comment threads of guys seeking advice for particular situations with regards to Game. Whether it’s fine tuning certain aspects of Game or a larger consensus of the guys participating in my comment threads it’s become obvious there’s a need for a dedicated page and comment thread to address these Field Reports.

So I’m instituting this page for exactly this. If there is some urgency to have members of The Rational Male community analyze your particular situation feel free to hit anyone up in the comments of my current post, but please refer them to your particular field report with a link to your comment here. I’m hoping this will alleviate the mass of posts for field report analysis and Game specific insights piled into the main blog post for any given week.

There will be some rules for this “forum” as such. I ask that you only keep your comments to addressing the field reports at hand and save your larger theoretical stuff for the main posts, or if relevant, keep the “bigger scope of things” posts to being as succinct as possible. There will be no moderation in this comment thread (spamming excepted), so realize it will be a very hot kitchen before you post. I will impose no restrictions on video links here, nor will I limit links to various, but pertinent articles.

Understand, this is an experiment for now. It’s likely this comment thread will exceed thousands of comments. I’ll be instituting new comment plug-ins for wordpress to deal with this in the future, but I may archive this page the the posts and refresh this page in the future as well. If this gets cumbersome I may simply institute a dedicated forum-style sub-site of The Rational Male to accommodate for Game specific questions.

So have at it, post your field reports and feel free to comment on the ones you have some particular insight for. Be forewarned that it’s likely things may get a bit salty at times and I expect a lot of back & forth with debate and disagreements, but that’s what this thread is for – to hash out Game particulars for your given situations.

@SJF “Tantum “You have made me think about that attempting to lay down some rules — “lines in the sand … clear ultimata …”, etc, is merely to cave into the FI, and, on reflection, it seems that I am suffering from a misguided belief in scarcity, which probably stems from childhood.

@Rollo, everyone:

sorry to hear that you are closing the comments. Thanks for keeping this one open.

I agree the priority is to keep the main posts around.

If the FR section also needs to go eventually, I’d like to stay in touch with several of you guys.
Not sure what the best way to do that while keeping everyone partly anonymous.

(Part 4) You know what makes her go through this existential LTR crisis? I call it a lesser man’s mindset. A weak man can’t help himself but submit/sacrifice. Women take it (why wouldn’t they?) but they don’t respect it. It’s evo-bio-psych. Look at redback spiders. Even if a redback male doesn’t die without finding a potential mate (80% of the cases), he becomes functionally sterile after one mating. So to maximize the chances of species survival he self-sacrifices and puts his abdomen directly onto the female’s fangs (65% of mating males get eaten). Get this: further extension of his life… Read more »

IRL, As kfg points out you can choose to bypass evo-bio all you want. The result is a disordered appearance. Evo-bio defines our animalistic purpose. I don’t think that’s the case with you. There is another quality of sexual success that you’re higher-order choosing to do. Animals don’t choose. That quality is surprise. Much of PUA is an attempt to teach the qualities of order and surprise. Combined those qualities create beauty. Women dig beautiful guys. The opposites of order and surprise are disorder and banality. Sexual success requires BOTH order/sensibility and mystery/surprise. Evo Bio chosen well-ordered gives a man… Read more »

@Eh I don’t think that’s the case with you. Interesting. When speaking to guys IRL, the first person form (‘I’ instead of ‘you’) bypasses their self-defense mechanism (‘not me!’) and plants the seed. Here, it triggers a helping hand. No worries, I’m good. Just ‘licentia poetica’. I’m fascinated by the phenomenon, not really scared/limited by it. On that note, if you dig deeper, you’ll see girls are functionally (logically) blind. They want someone to create their reality for them. They’re just sentient creatures floating in space, moving towards the light to survive and reproduce. Waiting for someone to be that… Read more »

About 8 months of consist M/W/F’s. consistency is the most important thing.

Pre workout:

500mg Agmatine Sulfate powder and a capsule of Caffeine+ L-Theanine 200mg/100mg.

Both are available on Nootropics Depot.

Post workout:

200mg MK 677 for muscle growth (get it from Purerawz right now. It’s usually out of stock). Increases hunger as well. So you can fit in those extra calories at the end of the day.

RC On average, If you are initiating 3 or 4 times and closing once you need to up the dread and/or initiate earlier in the night. The way to tell if she is really tired or shutting you down is how fast she goes to sleep after she hits the pillow. Fatigue is a real thing in the grind with lids. If she is lights out within 5 minutes you meed to be I initiating earlier. On this “I thought caving to her request would have been a loss of frame ” It’s contextual.

The single biggest thing is consistency. If you want the “shredded” look, that will take some specific dedication to watching your calorie intake, your macro nutrients, and when you eat; it’s more difficult to achieve such a look than simply to be a strongman physique and go bearmode, because the shredded look requires building muscle yet reducing fat which simply doesn’t happen simultaneously (hence the… Read more »

that’s a mindset shift that I should try out. Taking the piss out of women.

I get kind of depressed when I don’t go out because I feel that I’m not approaching enough. Similar to how an employee feels guilty when he’s on vacation so to speak.

Don’t look at approaching as a “job”. That’s not to say that I shouldn’t put in effort to refine my game and learn, but at the same time, going in with the mindset of “I must approach 20 girls tonight” is not exactly healthy either

He actually said this wrt to banging underage girls in his post: “If there was some way I could pass for a 16-year-old and get a chance to bang virginal 14- and 15-year-olds again you bet your ass I would try it, but as things stand I cannot and my chances with that age group are minimal (which doesn’t stop me from trying every now and then, by the way, since the numbers game is the numbers game, amen).” But overall, a lot of what he wrote resonated with me. There’s a lot of of good shit in… Read more »

“All text game is deception too, since the number one rule there is not to text when you want to text, nor what you would like to text, but to text specific types of messages at prespecified intervals”

He’s preaching self-control, not deception, as a means of achieving his mission. Lines up with 48 Laws of Power. Not a clear thinker, tho.

Finally, J’s expert leaves this gem floating in his blog…“What I’ve been trying to demonstrate to you for the last few pages, ultimately, is that deception is the fil rouge that runs right through all types of game”

say what?

Guess his next book will expose game’s deceptiveness and he’ll sell it to the churchian anti-game white-knights.

“A guy takes an std test and waits 3 weeks etc. Fascinating…”

It was fascinating, I ran out of popcorn watching the car crash play out.

If you’re interested I’ll write it up.

Wow we’ve got to a point where a direct approach is considered a DLV in comparison with an indirect approach ? Ok now I’ve got to disagree, sounds like Male hamstering, I see something I like I don’t wait for an IOI or proximity or some “excuse “ to talk to her I just Fucking talk to her because I’m a MAN and that’s how it works FFS .

“I see something I like I don’t wait for an IOI or proximity or some “excuse “ to talk to her I just Fucking talk to her because I’m a MAN and that’s how it works FFS” Direct: putting your hand on her waist and squeezing, “hey sexy what’s your name?” Indirect: “Hey. your name isn’t Jennifer is it?” Target: um no?. “oh, because that girl over there told me….wait is that a french accent? (open loop: what did that girl over there say?). Don’t fucking tell me you’re from paris too haha”. Nothing to do with waiting for IOIs… Read more »

@Playdontpay

You’re a special case.

From the minute you walk in a room it’s obvious that you’ve got an edge that most men don’t want to fuck with if they know what’s good for them and this is not lost on most women who do want to fuck with your edge..

You’re getting IOI’s half the time and you’re such a natural you’re not even seeing them.

Don’t be stupid broski. Direct means communicating intent. It doesnt mean talking to girls.

Have you heard of the 3 second rule?

You can be a MAN and see a girl and go talk to her and not be direct in communicating your intent.

If you do show intent you force her to judge you right then and there on scant info.

Low probability play.

theasdgamer

Sentient, I think that a lot of guys get the impression that game is a numbers thing because they always communicate their intent up front. When you use direct game, of course it’s a numbers thing. But that’s not really game because you never give the girl a chance to know you and your charm. Direct = higher numbers and low probability (looks is key) Indirect = lower numbers and higher probability (probability depends on game proficiency; looks is less important) Direct and indirect game are opposite strategies. That being said, there’s always room for girls to be retarded and… Read more »

How do I post 161 page Damore case against the Gulag – part here: “5. Damore, Gudeman, and other class members were ostracized, belittled, and punished for their heterodox political views, and for the added sin of their birth circumstances of being Caucasians and/or males. This is the essence of discrimination—Google formed opinions about and then treated Plaintiffs not based on their individual merits, but rather on their membership in groups with assumed characteristics. Google employees and managers strongly preferred to hear the same orthodox opinions regurgitated repeatedly, producing an ideological echo chamber, a protected, distorted bubble of groupthink.

Re: Damore v The Gulag

Just how far does the feminocracy go at the Gulag? Clearly there is an absolute believe in impunity on the part of those people voicing vitriolic and abusive comments, as they believe that the FI will protect them.

@Tantum Ergo

There’s a 160+ pages which is a lot by any standards.

Not read it all yet.

My guess is it goes all the way to the top and beyond that they believe it’s sanctioned at a societal level.

Ie they don’t think the laws apply to them.

@Palmsailor

I think that you are right in that it goes all the way to the top.

In the environments in which I work, this is becoming increasingly endemic.

As @Rollo might well say, the commissars at the Gulag appear to be conducting themselves according to ‘the second set of books’ — the unwritten ‘rules’ governed by the FI which supersede primary laws relating to equality.

Update on DT Girl So the post from the really bad awful no good text shows me it was 29 days ago. https://therationalmale.com/field-reports-comment-page-2-comments/comment-page-117/#comment-274023 I haven’t seen her or texted since then. I knew she was going overseas for a few weeks. figured I’d just wait and run into her again. Went by the spot a couple of times, hasn’t been around. I went today got breakfast and sat down in the corner. I’m finishing up and she pulls up with two little kids like 5-6 YOs. She goes to the counter and sits with them, she can’t see me in… Read more »

My gut is not to text. She’s back so you will see her again.

She didn’t have to initiate, and she did more than once.

Wondering if the interaction was a bit dry, not much teasing?

Meditate on this I will.

@Sentient Update on DT Girl … Questioning whether to send a text again in a few days, try to reopen this or just pop round and run into her again, take the chance she is with kids or not. Leaning towards a text. “Now that your back, what are you up to?” or something. still expecting almost any feeler to be met with bad logistics. Gut is starting to say go more direct. Thoughts? by the numbers… how do you re-establish contact after going dark?… = ping text to ‘join you’ while out somewhere enjoying your life without her… the… Read more »

= ping text to ‘join you’ while out somewhere enjoying your life without her…

Yeah, but how to overcome the near certainty that she will always be “busy” at that time with work or kids?

Me: [ping!] Not getting coffee atm.
Her: Hey
Me: Having a drink at XYZ, come join me.
Her: I have to pick my kid up, I’m out grocery shopping, I’m at work [etc. etc. etc.]

That’s the worry. You’ve got a high chance of getting that if she’s got 2 young kids and you cant ask again after one blow out..

unless you want to be chasing her… it will most likely depend on her cycle, yo!…lol… let her hindbrain/hamster be your helper… at this point, it really is a long game process…

And where is the line between a “long game process” and “chasing”?

@Sentient Perhaps it’s a pond thing but I never have any clue what HABD means by half the things he says so I’m Probably not getting what he’s saying at all. I think he means keep asking but I’ve never liked that (though it probably works if you do it right) as it feels needy and I’ve been sat there with women who’ve kept getting texts from men and seen the other side of that. I’d try to understand her movements better and get to a point where I could instadate it. That said I’m totally off texting these days,… Read more »

^^ Friday night was cold approach. A friend and I say ourselves at a table she was sat at with her friend in a small local pub and we started to talk. Met Sunday again but again logistics were fucked and still childcare issues. So she’s probably coming down Saturday night to my place.

Sounds like you left an impression on that woman.

On this one, it’s more a test of game that oneitis. I want to succeed here. I really don’t know much about her [no idea what her babby daddy situ is, or other guys etc. I never ask, usually they will bring it up] and she still doesn’t know my name, as far as I know…

We will see. Probably go the bump into route once more a week out.
