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.

@Blax I think the problem with these guys is they’re so immersed in PUA that their whole life suffers. Someone pointed me to YaReally text archives – Culum? – anyway, reading it, he confirmed he was broke arse with no car in a rented “apartment” with a duff job that enabled him to spend all day working on his text game for “literally hours”. With all due respect to his pulling ability he was a broke arsed loser. That’s ok up to about 35, but then it times out. There’s a bloke where I am that has solid game, and… Read more »

My CV is awful (also had cancer that put me out of cmmission for a while) and i’m not good at learning new skills, and I have no existing ones! But it is what it is.

@j Hi. I don’t know if you remember, you had introduced me to Bacchus’s work on daygame and Gunwitch Method which he advocates. You also sent me a link to Seduction MMA. I have been listening to Seduction MMA, not yet finished it. But I have already started having better interactions. I used to do direct London style daygame and hardly any sets would hook. Now, I am picking only lone stationary girls like Bacchus advises and have an almost 50 percent hook rate. I am not yet good at immersion, but I am sure that needs more practice. My… Read more »

Still the best out there (and not just for texting). But yes, he was broke and working some dead-end job that just barely supported him. Mid 30s when he was posting, so about late 30s now. He did say in his last year of posting (2016) that he was finally turning his focus away from pickup and generally towards… Read more »

Agreed. I’d say though, watching Mystery, his heart has always been about helping guys. That could be a mission, but lots of priests try that and don’t get paid either…

Sure when he had the TV show his ego took off, but he lacks the narcissism and Machiavellianism of a Owen Cook for example, to make gobs of cash at this.

@Culum And I’m willing to bet you do wait till you get enough IOIs from DHVing before you go into A3 and give her an investment hoop. You just don’t call it that. Possibly. But it’s also as simple as ignoring all this and going for the investment hoop regardless… only to see she’s not compliant… and pedaling back to A2. Rinse and repeat. Fair enough, this way it’s a diagnostic tool that also helps you push the interaction forward even if you’re oblivious to IOIs. Rebranding it is funny though. People just don’t understand MM or the underlying principles… Read more »

IRL “Going for it as a natural sexy beast induces IOIs if you will.” Absolutely it can. But it can also not. A natural is highly adept at picking up on IOIs so they rarely get an IOD at this point so they train to act on the IOI without realizing it. And of course that added confidence boosts the feedback loop, success negating more success. Most of them start in A2… Goes back to what I was saying, you can use a “hold my cock” opener. It’s just going to produce more variable results if you aren’t calibrating to… Read more »

So I didn’t pick up that others were re naming parts of the process hence my comment to J above.

It’s a good place to be. And can get you laid on the reg as long as you go out.

My reversion to MM was after trying to materially increase the hotness of pulls. Real 8/9 girls, dancers, models, actresses. And the shaman Yareally (for his faults and hatred of masculity a real savant on pua) pointed me back to the beginning.

I’ve met plenty of men who are very successful and confident and socially dominant and charming in politics and business etc (but that doesn’t necessarily mean they were good with women and I didn’t really get to see this category around women).

You have a business that will return you 35-40% Return on equity when geared.

You’ve got enough equity personally to take it where you need it.

Stop dicking with ETH etc,, and grow your core. If you’re bored, go bang N3. If you’re still bored bang N3 and N4 at the same time.

you followed an IOD with a DHV…just like the MM loop

a tease is a DHV because:

1) it’s inherently judgmental, which means that you assume higher status
2) it’s inherently engaging, which means that you assume a right to intimacy

A) open from the side (and body rock)
B) throw aFalse time constraint

C) open ” so answer a question for me, who lies more, guys or girls”?

But yeah. I know what an indirect opener is, brah. I’ve been doing pickup for a couple years now if ya didn’t know.

The reason I called it an investment loop is because I’m asking for compliance. Straight from the open. She can either comply with my question or not.

Same with the “who lies more” opener. She either doesn’t comply (“I don’t care”/”is that your best pickup line?”) in which case I’d IOD (tease/cold read) or complies, in which case I’d continue my routine.

If she complies, do X (reward/compliance test/explore topic).

If she doesn’t comply, do Y (tease/disqualify/takeaway/sexually misinterpret).

I don’t even know who my N100 was with. Stopped counting long before that. It’s never been about the N. It’s just been fun and escalation from that. If it’s not fun then it doesn’t happen. “😂 that looks like ” nothing better to do ” sex. Technically, it is ” sex ” because P in V, but if I had to choose between that and watching the gane,… Read more »

@Gamenoob92 – post ’em and we’ll critique ’em and if you follow the advice and keep going out you’ll have to change your username pretty soon. I have my disagreements with @j on various issues to do with broader mindset (you’ve seen some of our disagreements right in the last couple of pages of this thread) but he’s very good on basic PUA stuff that you’re trying to learn and the specifics (and Todd’s videos are generally great – he’s one of my favourite PUAs). If you’ve not read YaReally’s stuff, you really need to do so stat. Single best… Read more »

Gamenoob ” I am really sick of this manosphere thing where people are shamed for trying to learn Game. What makes you think we are concentrating only on women?? Just because we want to get good at it. What is the use of all this if we don’t take action. One of the fundamental things the sphere is built on and what Rollo emphasizes also, us to learn Game. And I am doing that. Just because we have the drive to get good at Game does not mean we are defective. That’s why I would rather talk to on a… Read more »

Palma Lol. I try not to talk about my ” N ” count ( I didn’t know what an N was either until I started reading the comments here ) because it’s mostly inconsequential at the end of the day. The only reason I have an idea is because my 1st wife ( and second, but I didn’t answer her question ) asked me, because she’d known me since I was 15 or so, and she’d known firsthand that I was knocking chicks back, including many of her friends and neighbors. She popped that question after seeing my high school… Read more »

@foxguy Yes, lets do this. Till my patience runs out at least. “First, it’s good you are asking questions, this is a start, second once you gain true wisdom you will find you will stop asking questions to others and will only ask most questions to yourself, you will become your own true mental point of origin.” This is ridiculous shit! What does mental point of origin have to do with a newbie at Game asking a more experienced person about something.

@ Blaximus I took exception to foxguy for what he wrote about us not being ourselves for looking to improve. We are considered as people “obsessed with women”. As far as your post was concerned, I was just clarifying that I am not making learning Game my only goal in life. I listed the other things I am doing and that I do not have unrealistic expectations about wanting to bang models. It is just that I have different people that I ask questions about on my fitness goals, different people I consult for my language learning skills and I… Read more »

It’s 22:00 here right now, and that clip has stuck in my head – and so I had to get out of bed, get dressed and walk to the pub at the end of my road for a double.

After my first divorce I did a brass a couple of times. That was what that “sex” looked like.

I was in a bad place at the time.

Yer you’re over cooking it on round one without closing it so they think it’s gonna be direct to the mattress the minute you meet them again.. so ASD kicks in turbonutter mode and she shuts up shop so you cant spike her again.

I’m not a big porn guy, so what J posted didn’t stick to my neurons very long before being replaced by a chorus of cicadas in my backyard.

I get why he posted it though, because he feels good.

Lol, I don’t think I’ve had ” sex ” like that since the 70’s though.

I dunno, what can I say. I know you’re laying them. And well done.

But do you have the life you want?

The whole thing?

For the record I don’t, but I know where it is and how to get there.

I’m not asking you to answer the question here but sooner or later you will have to answer it to yourself.

I did not intend to get into any discussion about ideologies and life priorites. It is the others who jumped in. I am just a guy looking for advice on Game and j has helped a lot on that. Culum also pitched in on that. I do not understand why you guys are even bothering to butt in. Feel free to ignore me and my “misdirected” efforts to learn Game as… Read more »

You’ve been given the advice you asked for but you don’t understand it.

You need a more whole approach than just an agenda of dicking women.

Lol, J’s real handle is Dumpster. Finding women to bang is easy. Not being insecure isn’t.

“Oh, I must be so awesome because a woman let me rawdoggg her…” Pedestalizing women you bang.

“I gave a woman Chlamydia…” Wtf were you doing rawdogging a woman with Chlamydia? Don’t you value your d1ck at all????

Yollo, “What is a man being led to willingly betray in your hypothetical scenario?” Anytime he fundamentally presents himself as someone he is not, “I’m a dynamic go getter, who owns a multi-hundred million dollar company” when he doesn’t. I’m not saying it’s wrong to lie to the girl per se I actually care little about the woman. I care about the damage it does to the guy because that type of misrepresentation will come back to haunt the guy in the long run sometimes spectacularly because it’s a tradeoff for only pleasure, in other words it’s a trade a… Read more »

@Sentient: about the pattern recognition thing… You don’t have to be a scientist to think scientifically. And you certainly don’t have to be an academic to do, nowadays with the current environment in Academia, being an academic may actually anti-correlate with scientific-thinking in some fields of research.
@Rollo has excellent pattern recognition skills, and is clearly a scientist by any decent definition of the word (as @kfg might say).
Much more so than many “professional” researchers in psychology that are academics

I mentioned before I’m very “buy and hold” so there we go. I probably won’t reinforce my poistions (or won’t very much) as I want to invest more in the “business” that Palma mentions. @J: obviously the pr0n was a bit of (not so) “humble”-bragging and you are getting rightfully blasted for it, although I don’t quite get the “AMOG” bit here about the… Read more »

@Foxguy – girls aren’t my top priority anymore. They (or rather learning Game) was, for a long time – I made huge improvements over years doing that, but eventually I hit certain mindset limitations that are not learning more techniques. That’s why I am basically not Gaming this year (maybe do a bit on holiday or something) and I’m focussing on intense physical developments, which is offering surprising mindset benefits in itself. But that’s a good way to look at what I’m trying to do – to be free of fear, and external constraints. @Blax – lots of thoughts triggered… Read more »

@ford Somewhere Black Dragon covers the idea that he never makes out with them on a first date unless you’re definitely going to take it to the mattress. Since I’ve only read two books on the subject it must be either Roosh or Mystery that really went into it fully. I think it was Roosh because I remember that he was really witty about it (if you get his SOH which is (was) the driest in the manosphere IMO).

Yareally didn’t leave because he was criticized. He stepped too far out of what he knew and didn’t like what he was hearing. The blows came in pretty rapid succession. First, Rollo deleted so rsd videos because he didn’t want the guys that were sniping at him having a shitload of videos on his site. Then there were the ” marriage debates ” where he’d made disparaging comments about men’s wives, strictly to put on a show for ” the newbs “. Then the final straw was the ” having kids while avoiding courts and still gaming chicks ” fiasco.… Read more »

“If you’re naive, you might think that the trm comments drove him completely from the internet.”

Or

He hit a wall by finally realising that game as he knew it couldn’t deliver what he wanted.

Or

He had “become” the game and was totally lost – there was nothing of himself including any idea of what he really wanted and nowhere to run from that.
