(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.”
