“The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.”Barack Obama
Grocery Store Game
I noticed something at this stage in my daygame journey – I was having a decent amount of success in the grocery store after the gym. As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I also found a new grocery store that was full of cute women, so I was excited to game there and get some sets in. I will talk about some of the more interesting sets I did over a one-week period in this field report.
The Blonde Who Was Flattered
I approached a blonde with green eyes who was dressed in all black, teased her about it and got into a good conversation with her. She was very flattered that I opened her direct and her eyes went real big, she repeated that she was flattered a few times during the set. I think I made the mistake of talking too much and not making the set more about her, but overall it was good practice and I was able to tease her a bit. She said she was kinda seeing someone when I went for the number close – I let her go, but if this set would have happened today, I would have pushed a bit more. Back then, I didn’t have the experience yet to know when to let them go and when the boyfriend is genuine, but I am always learning!
The blonde I had to approach
Sometimes, you see a girl that is so your type that all approach anxiety goes away and your legs walk towards her on their own. Well, this happened to me shortly after I did the set above. I saw a tall blonde and gave chase, caught up to her in one of the aisles. Opened direct and she liked it, good talk about music festivals and I made sure to tease her a bit, she was very open to the approach. She invested in the convo but after a couple mins mentioned her husband, I was surprised to hear she is 26 and married happily. I let her go, but this set boosted my confidence and put a smile on my face, I saw a girl I wanted and took the action to make it happen.
Snapchat close and tattooed gym rat
I had my first Snapchat close with a college redhead shortly after this set as well – she had piercings and seemed a bit ditzy, was super talkative and invested in the conversation right away. I asked her for a drink at the end of the set and she said “Maybe, and I had to settle for her snap rather than number. I didn’t have a good feeling about this one and I was right – I never got a response back from her.
Then, I went to the wine aisle and and saw a super fit chick with tattoos. As someone who loves working out, I do appreciate a fit girl, so I had to open! Stacked on her tattoos, but couldn’t get her to stay much longer after we exchanged names, she didn’t seem too interested in me. It was good to see that my approach anxiety at this point in my journey was getting considerably less when seeing the cuter girls, this definitely felt helpful to me.
My first Snapchat close was interesting because I wondered whether it would lead to something. Until this point, I had always gotten numbers and pushed for them, but when she offered me her Snap I thought it would be good to see if I can make it happen over Snap. Well, ever since then, I don’t take Snapchat and go for the number. In my mind, if a girl is interested enough, she will give me her number.
