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.

Rollo, kindly have a look at some additional stats from Gallup polls
https://twitter.com/mattyglesias/status/1364226590423490561/photo/1

“62 percent of women without children under the age of 18 prefer to work outside the home.
“23 percent of men surveyed preferred to don the homemaker role in marriages”.

Also have a look at this study from the American compass
https://americancompass.org/essays/home-building-survey-part-1/
https://americancompass.org/essays/home-building-survey-part-2/

Just some food for thought, I guess. Make your own decisions from this stuff.

Hey guys, I am rookie in this whole red pill awareness and like everyone one else I wished I knew about this 20 years ago. I started my MAP in November 2020 and although I did sensed a good response at the beginning (sex improved, quantity and quality) I have obviously lost my frame along the way. Her kryptonite? she responded to my actions exactly the same way I was behaving. I started working out, she did the same thing. I removed my attention because I was setting boundaries, she did the same way; I started putting myself first, and… Read more »

MAP… Male Action Plan from Athol Kay. The old rubric on that forum was one year of MAP for each year of relationship, so uou are still a year off. You are at the phase where you shouldn’t be thinking about her at all. Focus on you and doing things hiu want. How do you get a cat to chase a string? You pull it away. So go engage in your hobbies/pursuits/me time OUTSIDE the house, preferably where there are hotter younger women around and continue to work on your frame and leadership when inside the house.

Remember that actions speak louder than words, her hindbrain is “speaking” to you through her words, talking to her is just so much noise in a lot of cases. She flops onto a bed or couch on her phone? You go with the kids, take then out of the house to do something. Just walk, or do something in a park. Ignore noise from her, do… Read more »

Ok so I have to step in and ask opinions of the boys. I’ve worked for the last 3-4 years with the sole purpose of understanding game and getting with younger women. The intention was to gain access and just spin plates, buy a bigger boat, and party. In the current context, that’s a bit hollow. The RD has arrived on the scene; and I have to differentiate oneitis against a pragmatic appraisal of what’s on offer, whether In fact it is on offer, and whether I want what’s on offer. She arrives again on Friday for almost a week… Read more »

…insecurity of a pregers woman next post partum depression and ways to raise a child discussions When a woman “plans”, I become wary.

I agree Palma, he handled the situation very good – although that’s generally the way how you teach a child to behave and – more importantly: how to interact. On StuffInBox’s response: I’m a bloody noob on game, but I have experience with “overage” parents.

@Palma: I’m arriving late to the party and much of what I’d like to say has been written by more experienced people. Don’t go exclusive. Vet for longer. Even if you don’t marry her, having a kid with her eventually lets her extract resources from you. You know this because even now I’d say your ex (your son’s mother) still extracts some time out of you, directly or indirectly. Also consider you may be overestimating your capacity to keep it under control given that you’ve kept it under control in very specific circumstances, where she is coming over to have… Read more »

Thanks for all your feedback which I’ll mediate on for a bit.

Even as we speak and I’m thinking it through, my opinion is changing.

Being locked down has skewed everything – practically speaking it put a huge multiplier on what was already a good outcome. It’s created a disproportionate and skewed view.

If I hadn’t been locked down, then by now, having crossed the rubicon – which was the difficult but – I would have another two in the kitty – which would give a very different outlook.

I’ve not seen her angry

The question isn’t if you’ve seen her angry but if you know HOW she functions under pressure, when things aren’t as planned, when problems arise etc. Not only in the moment but also afterwards (fixing? preventing? improving?).

Circle back to this:
“pressurize a situation and see where the fissures develop”

You ‘stress test’ (or ‘vaccinate’… lol) a relationship to accelerate the “getting to know each other” stage and also test/build resilience and trust (taking her on a journey through rollercoasters and handling them does that).

Secrecy? The first girl I banged asked if I hit on our other friends in our social circle. I said “sure.” It was one of two sht tests before we banged. (Her other sht test was whether I knew she was engaged. “Sure.”) Rule breaking signifies alpha. If you bang a girl in your social circle, you get preselection, but the anti-slut defense will also pick up and you have to know how to handle it. That’s where you do secrecy and you never talk specifics when you say you’ve banged other girls. When girls ask, you say, “Classified.” Girls… Read more »

Don’t play the social circle game, I mean it. In my early pickup days, I used to Game women using social connection, who fucked with multiple guys as well. You’ll lose your social status for fucking women in a social circle even if the girl you banged was a hoe. Instead try to interact with women in an isolated manner, in that way you’ll be able to see what she really is, and she can’t get to you using social laundry after you’ve messed up with her.

Afterwards, I yelled in her direction, asking her if she had been in choir. Four years, she said. So I asked her if she wanted to sing a duet with me and… Read more »

So, i realized that I didn’t unpack what was going on at the karaoke. (I didn’t plan any of it–it’s how I roll.) Now to unpack it… First, I established social rapport with men in the bar and I am on friendly terms with the owner. Social value established. Second, I yelled to the unicorn. There’s a rule against yelling at unicorns. I broke a rule. That’s a signal. (Alphas are rule breakers.) Treating a unicorn very casually–like a kid sister. That’s a way of establishing value. Third, I did a cold read at the same time. Value signal. Bonus… Read more »

So a few things have happened lately and it’s my sons 18th on Monday, and he doesn’t want to see me.

I can’t explain why, but for some time I’ve fancied rowing the Atlantic solo.

I’m almost decided to do it solo, and I want to raise funds for charity, but it’s gotta be a men’s charity, so I’m thinking something like prostate cancer.

You guys vote on it, and I’ll go with that charity,

The husband probably doesn’t matter, so don’t talk about it as long as you don’t want to rund a “boyfriend destryoer routine” (the german PU-forum is full of that). And it seems reasonable to ask her to WhattsApp the pictures, or go straight for the number as of “Was nice talking to you, so hand me your number (or hand her yours’) to stay in contact.

Most people are eager to establish any form of social contact.

Work the Instagram angle… make sure she posts the pics she took. Then have her come round to your place to take some pics of your work there and show you how to post them to your account or whatever (which is very easy).

Don’t mention lunch just do something while she is there, if she comes.

The insta angle is plausibly deniable and establishes comms.

Her comment about her husband is a positive.

She has beta sorted. If she’s looking for anything its an alpha fuck. And you after 15 years an IT guy isn’t hitting those notes too often. No need to mention him anymore.

What you need to demonstrate is the secret part of secret society. Discretion. Her family can’t find out.

It has to happen in that liminal space.

So your pitch has to be spot on. She has to know but not know what’s up. Laser and a touch of kino are your friend.

Get with a nurse in a local hospital and when it’s you and her in the room, she can sign off that you’ve had your vaxx but it went down the sink.

It’s at least pretty unlikely to get serious damage from CoViD-vaccines, I have many good friends here who got it and who have had no problems.
But I also have several friends who got CoViD and had serious side effects.

Everything you do can just possibly kill you. Be it racing a motorcycle or just climbing the stairs at home, death lingers behind every corner, possibly.

The thing is: you need to see the reality of statistics, which is CoViD is not the smallpox or anthrax, yet modern vaccines are an even better option.

Everything has to be MOAR EFFICIENT! The last point is that they are ratcheting up the compliance faster than they are thinking it through so there are only about 270 people who are qualified to oversee and sign off ECO funding in the country. From the end of June it all stops unless you have one of those qualified guys. And In a minute it’s going to be… Read more »

Very hot young (early 20’s) thing comes to serve and I want beer and a bit of lime juice to go in it. She gets a bit flustered with this but mages it and we chit chat about loads of stuff.

Ask her if she can cook, she probably can’t, and use that to invite her over.

If she says she can, use it to invite her over and show her how much better you are.

Then “come over and I’ll cook” thing seems a bit overt, will need some toying with. And possibly end of a shift for her so she hasn’t got time to “discuss” it with any influencers. When there is nobody around you don’t need it, what you need is social proof and to be seen as dangerous to other men, women this age can sense when you intimidate the boys.

I met my GF in a coffee shop. She’s15 years my junior and she started chatting me up. I’ve always been a big believer that if her (or whomevers) desire is high enough she’ll make the opportunity happen if your SMV level meets that desire. I’ve always been more surprised in life by this, staying in my lane, and sex always came easy. Just go back and do your thing.

Lately I’ve been catching episodes of the show Sex and the City on cable. When it was a live series on HBO 20+ years ago I saw bits and pieces on travel, and it often left me pissed off for no reason I could explain, it was just…what bitches! Argh! I have not really seen much of the show since then. Some of the scripts were written in part by a gay man, and that shows when one or the other of the four women is acting….wrong.

I like the part where he brings in the Illuminati…and the quotes from Pablo Naruda.

Ms. Brown told the coordinator that, at first, she believed it was consensual. She acknowledged having feelings for Mr. Conforth but told the coordinator that she quickly became anxious and conflicted after their sexual encounter. She soon recognized, she said, that she had been manipulated, especially after learning from a friend — another student in his class at the time — that Mr. Conforth had left a note for her saying that he found her attractive.

Classic.

Nicely played – I don’t know how other newbys and lurkers here feel, but I always feel like I gain enormous amounts of knowledge through your reports.

It’s probably primarily seeing the game through the eyes of a game-aware dude.

Now – how do you do your “laser eye contact”? Is it just about looking into someone’s eyes for longer than usual – or also about your facial expressions along the way?

Anyway – great to hear a story of an open bar around one gamer.

Then triangulate your vision – go from her eyes to her lips, back to her eyes, back to her lips, maybe down to her chest, back to her eyes… while you are nodding and going along with blah blah blah coming out of her mouth.

@NNN1 Eye contact, preening, and courtship gestures was covered in Body Language by Allan Pease in 1984. Not quite in the same way as @Sentient points out below. I’ve had a copy since 1985/1986. My dad bought it for me to help in my sales career and it did but I studied the bit about courtship more than the sales bit. The thing about eye contact to remember is that if two men lock eye contact and neither breaks away they fight, but if a man and a woman make eye contact and neither breaks away they fuck. So remember… Read more »

Actually his description of the “intimate gaze” and triangulation is identical. Fascinating.

Now I see why you’re seized on the hair flip…

Question – by focusing on one form of IOI, and that being reinforced by experience, might you have done even better by observing multiple IOIs, i.e. IT’S that were not hair flips?

Or at least, not at first. Hair twirling/ grooming / tucking behind the ear can go on while they are distracted by other things. It’s a clue where their hindbrain is wandering. Ditto some of the other IOI’s. They do this stuff with zero conscious thought, it just happens.
