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.

@Jacboslim

Southern states are culturally trad-con. Which leads to white knighting. Maybe you grew up there, or you’re just doing what you need to do to get invited to the next college party. But at the end of the day women are still going to be women, alpha beta. IMO trad-cons can be purple pill but they never really want to fully unplug, a part of them doesn’t want to acknowledge that women are running their own game, equality when she wants it, female privileges when she doesn’t.

Hey guys, I wanted to sound this out here. I hope some of the experienced guys can comment on this. I practice pickup and I am redpill aware. I have a girl that I have been dating for around 9 months and we have great fun but it is not exclusive on my side but she says she does not want any other guy and is happy with me. I date other girls as well. Recently I arranged a date with a girl I had approached on the street some time ago. The first date went well we had drinks… Read more »

BDM – welcome to the TRM Field Reports section. We need some new blood especially since @j and @palma recently left. As far as your situation goes, I think you did well. If you genuinely didn’t want the girl and lost interest in her and told her to leave or whatever – then that’s congruent to yourself and you’re being authentic to your desires. No need to force it or do something you don’t want to do. However, there is a balance – you shouldn’t use that as an excuse or a buffer to avoid “doing the work” and getting… Read more »

@Culum Thanks for the response. I get what you are saying. I don’t mean to say my Game is at the zenith and I have no room for improvement. I have faced LMR many times before and have overcome it sometimes on the next date. Here I felt it was more of a frame grab than just LMR. She was trying to play the Game of having everything according to her timelines and convenience. This girl is elder than me she is 31 and I am 27 and all I wanted with her was sex and possibly a fuckbuddy arrangement… Read more »

As she was epiphany stage woman I suspect this

“asked her to come over to my place and asked her to bring some wine and that I would whip up something to eat and we could watch something.”

Boyfriend kind of beta behavior triggered her ASD. So not LMR as much as ASD. Her comments about respecting her timeline and your feeling a frame grab support this as well.

She saw a chance to pivot to boyfriend.

@BDM Yes, there should a balance between doing what you want how you want it and learning that you just plow through it your way and the reality resists. Calibration. Need to learn how to read subtle cues and that you cause many of that. I think your issue with this specific girl started before your FR. First, she’s 31 so her hamster tests harder for that alpha and beta clarity. By definition. She’s running out of time, you know. Throwing a spanner in the works to find out how you handle it is part of the deal. Second, you… Read more »

Not necessarily, not on its own. @Palma and ThinMan do it and it’s not an issue per se. There are other factors that have set the trajectory of this interaction. The dinner date setting might not be colored in @BDM’s favor rather as a consequence.

@ culum sentient IRL Thanks for the feedback guys. But I thought I had to build at least a bit of comfort to get the lay. Besides she was not a bitchy shit testing girl, she was more of a shy and compliant girl from the beginning so I presumed at least without some comfort and making her feel that I want her and that she is just not another notch on my bedpost. On our first date she even said “How many girls do you do this to each month. This appears to be so natural to you, you… Read more »

This will be good to tap into. Mystery said “the game is won or lost in comfort”.

There is a fine line between comfort enough to bang and comfort enough to make her think you are boyfriend material.

“On our first date she even said “How many girls do you do this to each month. This appears to be so natural to you, you are not even a bit nervous”. ”

What did you say here?

@BDM I thought I had to build at least a bit of comfort to get the lay. Well… “the game is played in comfort”… And yet you should know her level of attraction and compliance before you move things to comfort and seduction. So what was that level? Did you tease her a bit and let her close the space just before the make out? Did she comply with your requests at your place? If you can’t sense these things, consciously introduce little compliance tests. They’ll serve as both a diagnostic tool and a compliance/escalation ladder (this is why girls… Read more »

Good discussion here. BDM – yes, you need some comfort, but less than most men think. And the more aroused and horny she is, the less comfort you need (although you still need some). But most men vastly overestimate how much comfort is needed – of course you can lose a lay by not doing enough comfort, but most men lose lays for the opposite reason. Also, note that Mystery wanted girls to be obsessed with him and have MLTRs and fall in love with him etc. If all you want to do is get laid quickly, comfort is less… Read more »

But you won’t… because you’re not even remotely close to doing this:

1. Decide what you want.
2. Write it down.
3. Set a deadline.
4. Make a list of what you have to do to achieve your goal.
5. Prioritize your list to convert it into a plan of action.
6. Take action.
7. Do something every day that moves you toward your goal.

welcome…

Let’s clear up a few things, baseline…

“Married 24 years”

Ok but…

“Sex has always been a point of contention, bargaining, manipulation, frustration. “

This issue has been around looooong before cancer…

So while this is undoubtedly true

“I realize I’ve abdicated some of my masculinity the past five years or so. “

It is not the root cause. Approach your reconstruction from this point of view.

On illness, cancer whatever it is… Guys will go super beta, well intentioned of course, but women don’t react well to these things. Cats are not dogs.

The next step up from standing around and hoping a woman will come open you is the “IOI Hunter” where you won’t make a move until you get some obvious IOI. IOI Hunters can have some success, but again it is with being the chosen, not the chooser. and you are still going to need Game to convert those IOIs into sex.

So just start at the end stage – learn the Game you will need upfront. Then you will have all the tools in your bag to take advantage of all opportunities.

To get consistent results you need to have a consistent approach. I suggest you tear down your game knowledge and start from scratch. Understand MM and then replay these interations via that understanding.

You are coming across as a guy who has some issues understanding social cues who has a smattering of disparate game knowledge that he’s flinging around like monkey shit, with a whiff of lookretardism holding it all up.

That is 100% not the advice you’ve been given here. Your believing it is the same as seddit is a big part of the problem you seem to be having.

You are out, in the field trying. Which is great (cough Stefan) but wouldn’t you rather try the right way? With a solid foundation to build on?

However, from an MM point of view. ”There was a girl dressed as santa claus behind them and I opened the girls with some stupid comment like ”Do you think that’s the real santa claus?’” indirect, so good, but maybe go with an opinion opener. Try ‘who lies more. Men or women??” ” I introduced myself and said that they looked… Read more »

wentworth Have you looked into RSD instead of mysteryrmethod? RSD is just a variation on MM, and not that big a variation. But if the vids make more sense to Bronson, he should watch them. Reading Bronson’s FR is painful, because most likely he is lacking confidence and has minimal calibration. This comes out in his posture, his bearing, his vocal tonalities, his hand gestures, his facial expression – his subcommunications are all wonked up. In real life a majority of communication is not speech, and that is a big part of social interaction. “Inner Game” is a real thing,… Read more »

RSD is just a variation on MM, and not that big a variation. RSD Game, So-Called Natural Game (state based attraction) is VERY different from Mystery Method. A huge variation. These guys were getting crazy reactions off of this. The timeline of all game is the same – see the chick – plan or not plan – step up correctly – first lines – she reacts or she doesn’t – you handle her reaction or non-reaction attraction happens – this is the special sauce for every method handle her problems, relationships, logistics, obstacles, competition get to know her a bit… Read more »

@bronson Ok then, let’s zoom in. Just one set though. First set was on 2 young girls sitting at a table at a cocktail bar. See @walawala’s comment. What do you expect to happen when you approach a 2-set? If you’re not planning a threesome (or at least not leaving the other girl on her own) then what exactly is your game plan here? Noticing social cues starts before you open. There was a girl dressed as santa claus behind them and I opened the girls with some stupid comment like ”Do you think that’s the real santa claus?’. Nice.… Read more »

Nice breakdown Archie.

Just one comment: when boys here say MM they mean the underlying process, not necessarily Mystery’s game flavor/style. That’s why there’s a disconnect between the TRM FR crowd and other sites where MM means specific techniques.

The way the MM book is written doesn’t help the case.

When’s yours coming out?!

@AR ”RSD is just a variation on MM, and not that big a variation. ” @WIA “RSD Game is VERY different from Mystery Method. A huge variation” I agree with WIA. RSD style game is so different in almost every way that they’re largely incomparable. Without seeing Bronsons ”vibe’, technically her ran RSD’s style game ‘correctly’. Yet if he was trying to run MM style game, it was obviously ‘wrong’. Technically it’s basically impossible to run RSD style game wrong in terms of words on a screen. ‘What you say doesn’t even matter’. Classic RSD phrase. There’s no ‘order’ in… Read more »

Just got back from the club and had two shareable events happen to me. First I spent about 20 minutes dancing with a girl and offered her a drink, as soon as she got the drink she went to another guy and danced and went home with him. Don’t waste you time and money on a woman until they have proven that they value you as their house priority alpha male.

Reading it again, you were basically running Todd Valentine style game. I can see that you ‘disqualified’ in order to build attraction in a set where you could tell she wasn’t attracted. As well as cold reads and some other todd lines etc. Looks like you also threw in some MM routines? (bit of a mishmash) Thing is, that’s just not how it works despite what the books tell you. Todd gets rejected a tonne too (as does mystery etc) so don’t feel too bad. In fact, even some of his apparent recent ‘pulls’ from his product look like smoke… Read more »

@philconnors Technically it’s basically impossible to run RSD style game wrong in terms of words on a screen. […] Most things in an RSD infield are completely wrong in terms of mm Let’s not get carried away. By this logic Mystery’s game is purely verbal with no magnetism vs. words/language don’t matter and everything works in RSD’s style of game. Go and test that in the field. (Inb4 how many girls did Max pull consistently without saying a word?) RSD style game is so different in almost every way that they’re largely incomparable.

Good for him. He ran into a girl that was looking to fuck and she pulled him.

Pro’s are no more successful than me when it comes to girls that aren’t interested! There are videos of these pro’s defanging vipers and taming tigers. In sales, it’s called dealing with objections. I had one on my site where Todd fucked up royally by claiming to be from NYC and the chick was actually from NYC. There’s no way he could have know that was an issue as a transplant. He recovered by staying in there and handling the chick’s objections. Feisty chicks are usually the most fun. If a girl just lays down the second you say something… Read more »

That Todd rejection video was great. Not because it is an example of No girls (retarded) or good pick up. Personally i hate Todd’s “you look adorable” approach, though in the past he’s done a lot more technical game. Not sure when this was from. It’s a great example though of practicing. Of putting in The Work ™. Of frame control and standing up to social pressure. That was what almost 5 minutes of massive negative social pressure? In most interactions you are going to win this kind of frame battle in a couple of minutes. And he was winning… Read more »

Re: threesomes – that is a good question actually. Mine have been in the context of swingers clubs so I don’t consider them “proper” threesomes. And strangely enough I can’t think of a good guide for them – I’ve read and seen so much Game material I can usually think of a good source. I have a vague memory of reading about threesomes stuff in Mystery Method,… Read more »

Both Todd and Bronson showed lack of social awareness. You should know very soon whether you have a shot or not.

Todd Should have known in seconds. As everyone should

Aaron +1 to Culum’s advice “It’s ALWAYS better to try and go for the lay on the night (or day) when you meet a girl, when the attraction and energy are strong. When she leaves your presence it fades. Now in practice you will often have to take numbers, but just remember that the number is not a goal in itself. The lay that night is the goal and the number is only a backup if a lay that night doesn’t work.” I was going to make the same point. Your Game skills will vastly improve if you push your… Read more »

Second overarching point: next time, start observing the girls more closely. Both words and body language (incl eye contact) and reactions to you. Try and include a sentence or two about each girl’s subcomms in response to you, in your FR., Some specific points: Good opener with the “I’m offended” line. For the lookism types reading this, this line works because @Michael Aaron has good subcomms and social skills – NOT his looks. Good reflection… Read more »

Michael Aaron great stuff again. Your instincts are good and your awareness is very good. Just need to keep the entire process in mind – chess not checkers – and start working deeper into the phases – A3 – C1, locking in, bouncing intra venue, isolation, kino ladder etc… You want to at least “see” yourself moving through A-C-S upfront, so you cant start to work the game a few moves in advance. But great start. I’m hanging out at the bar with my 3 friends (2M 1F) Good, social proof. At that thought I got myself into movement and… Read more »

@Wondering, welcome to the Field Reports section. Tell us a bit more about yourself so that we can tailor the advice better to you – nothing personally identifiable, but age, previous sexual experience etc (also country if you’re comfortable revealing it – presumably Europe somewhere). I don’t agree with the “Otter Barnes” advice that you copied and posted from the other thread. It will only work if the girl is already attracted to you and sees you as high-value and is using “LJBF” to avoid giving in to temptation (maybe because she has a boyfriend or if it would be… Read more »

Thank you very much for the fast answer and the friendly welcome. She’ll realize that I did it on purpose, because I’m a very reliable person. That’ll make her wonder why I made it on purpose and it may even shock her in some way because it makes me unpredictable. It’s better to stand her up because we’ll end the non-relationship on my terms, and she’ll be in my frame. I led her right from the start, told her to meet me and have the courage to tell me the truth and I wasn’t afraid to make her angry by… Read more »

Does it make a difference for the future not to be officially rejected but standing her up? (that was what I meant, when I wrote “talk”)

And of course, it is better for myself to stand her up, because, by doing it, I ensure for myself that I already don’t care for her anymore.

That’s the most important point about it.

@Wondering – good answer. Yes, that’s basically it. There are some additional nuances to it, but you’ve got the key point. Basically it means you are acting in your frame and from your “Mental Point of Origin” – you’re doing what you want, not doing something because she will like it. It also means that a girl who is sure she has you figured out and knows that she “has” you at her disposal is suddenly not sure. It makes her doubt herself, it makes her wonder about you, it makes her think about you more – all good things.… Read more »

She’s with four other girlfriends. tap tap “Hi I’m Hubble” She’s immediately interested, happy to see me but not seriously attracted. My initial approach is friendly, not intentful.

@Wondering – my main feedback here is that you are thinking about this too much. A man who has abundance (lots of women in his life) simply does not think so much about one woman and her reactions and what to do with her – he has too many options. This level of thinking about the situation is itself a sign that you are too emotionally invested in this woman. That’s okay here in the TRM comments – I already knew you were too invested in this woman emotionally – but it’s a habit to break. I’m not suggesting you… Read more »
