Game In Four Lessons

(hat tip to Kane, who happened to post tonight on a similar riff)

Roosh had a brilliant post a while back where he boiled good game down to two lucid points:

1. Be interesting (self-explanatory)

2. Be cool (don’t chase away women with weird mannerisms or over-eagerness)

I’d like to add two more elements to the toolbox, things you do rather than traits you are.

3. Work your logistics

Logistics means a few things. It means arranging your life to be interesting (back to point 1), and living a lifestyle that brings you into contact with women who will want to be with you. (Being cool and interesting means nothing if nobody sees your gifts.) It means managing your time and resources so you can be in shape, well-groomed and tidy. For a hard-working single young adult, it’s surprisingly easy to lose track of all this stuff and wind up not meeting any women, or not being at your best when you do.

Logistics also means working the pickup or date properly – thinking a few steps ahead, dealing with cockblocks and distractions, knowing how to work a situation so you can get your gal isolated to a private location and escalate (this stuff is Pickup 101, and a fascinating, fun on-the-job challenge once you get the hang of it).

4. Work your seduction

Being cool and interesting is not going to score you many runs by themselves, and as many guys know, those clothes don’t take themselves off once you get her inside your place. Initiating the act, push-pulling the escalation, distinguishing last-minute resistance from genuine resistance, and not scaring the cat are all skills that require nuance and practice, but distinguish true romantics from sexless inkeepers. Take a line from the sales world: “if you can’t close, you’re an entertainer.”

  1. “those clothes don’t take themselves off” Im going to tweet that.

    I have a problem with being interesting, does that mean showing off? That’s not cool.

    Theres a quote I don’t remember quite well (if you can correct me): “Noobs wonder what to say, pros where to close” (something like that) // “Amateurs study tactics. Professionals study logistics.”

    “Interesting” is not self-explanatory to a lot of men. Trust me, I work in software development.

    [I meant "self-explanatory" in that the term "interesting" didn't have an ulterior or subtle meaning, not that it was easy to understand. This was to differentiate from the term "cool," which in Roosh's use means "easygoing" and doesn't refer to being interesting or high-value.]

  4. “Amateurs study tactics. Professionals study logistics.”
    –Attributed to a professional logistician. But real professionals are masters of operational art which includes tactics, logistics, strategy, psychology, intelligence (understanding the enemy). Neglecting any of them invites exploitation by the nemey.

  5. @Professor Hale: so you would complete that toolbox with more elements? (“tactics, logistics, strategy, psychology, intelligence (understanding the enemy).)”

    P.S: Badger, for some reason it seems that the comments I make with my wordpress account are identified as spam.

  7. When you have good game, logistics more than anything else determines if you’ll get laid.

  8. It’s amazing that everything in game can truly boil down to these four points. If you truly think about it, anything you mention can work into those categories. Starts with No. 1 and I believe No. 3 is last when you’re going for the lay.

  9. It’s depressing that you have to learn and accomplish all of that — the do’s, the don’ts, just the right personality, just the right pastimes, just to have a small chance of getting laid.
