Alright friends, I decided to make a separate thread for the Glorious Cold Approach Competition for advice. Here we can control, categorize, and archive the best advice so that you socially inept creeps can get out and become friendly little social butterflies. I'm going to divide my bit of advice into three portions: under 18, between 18 and 21, and 21 and older. This advice is predominantly for males. I would really appreciate female contribution to this thread because I believe women need to cold approach and become socially engaging just as much as men. Before I go any further, there are two things you will need if you want to cold approach and build success with the study of social dynamics - a pen and a journal. After every day of approaching, you ought to write notes. Before going out, review those notes. There are also two concepts we must understand. These are micro-momentum and macro-momentum: Micro-momentum - occurs in one instance where the person approaching builds a type of social momentum where his/her social anxiety becomes relieved and he/she becomes present and is able to achieve "in state", which is full self expression. Example: in a club you might approach 10 women and have rocky interactions or be completely blown off but with more approaches comes greater ease and the next ten become easier, more comfortable, and fun. Macro-momentum - occurs when the person is dedicated to approaching over a long period of time. Approaching becomes habitual. The person finds that they achieve "in state" faster, their mind becomes sharper over time, and they gain wit. This is only achievable when the person is willing to commit to doing multiple approaches on daily basis. The more time off, the more momentum is lost. Under 18 Usually guys who are under 18 feel disadvantaged because the best way to achieve extremely high approach volume is at bars or clubs. This is true, but when you are a high school student under 18 you have access to a lot of events where you can do high volume approaches that you never thought of or learned to utilize. One thing to take into account is that most of the girls you are approaching have never and I mean NEVER been approached before. It could be very easy or very hard to establish a good interaction. It's gonna be 50/50. Half will be totally socially inept and the other half with be a lot of fun. Also, the really hot girls don't know they're hot yet. They haven't experienced validation in any form so don't shy away from them. Alright, so here's what you're going to do: Join at least one sport at your school. Sports are important because you'll learn how to interact with other males and a productive manner and you'll also need to climb their social hierarchy and become that guy who keeps them hyped up. One reason I can hype myself and improve the mood of the crowd on dance floor of the club is because I did the exact same thing in the weight room with the football team. It was practically a rave with weights! You will join either speech (improvised acting) or if your school does not have it, acting/drama club. This will force you to become comfortable speaking in front of crowds but if you can join improv, what is better is you get access to massive tournaments that go on for entire weekends. You'll be at a school or hotel full of girls from other schools, districts, or (if you're any good) states. This means you can cold approach relentlessly with no fear of them really ever seeing you again. Join meetup.com. Join all of your city's volunteer organizations. Half of the volunteer meet ups are full of high school aged girls who are in some kind of church club and their mothers are forcing them to do charity work. I discovered this accidentally when I was getting hours for a class. There was one high school aged male and about thirty females. I was looking at the kid like, "WTF! Why aren't you talking to these girls?!" Public sporting events - specifically baseball games. Baseball, basketball, and football games are full of dads who drag their daughters out, attempting to force them to develop an appreciate sports. These girls usually wind up wandering around the stadium not watching the game. They'd probably really appreciate it if you approached them. Baseball games are the cheapest because nobody likes it anymore. Public parks - some girls go out and play soccer or basketball. A lot of parents put their kids in club sports. Between basketball games get out there and approach! Back in the day I got a few numbers doing this. Concerts/music festivals - a lot of these are open to all ages. Usually there are more females than males because, guess what... all the guys your age are at home fapping. Your neighborhood pool - summer is great, isn't it? Don't get discouraged! Your parents might not want to give you ride. You might not have money. All you need is a bicycle and a lot of motivation. If you work a summer job, save as much money as possible so you can afford going out. Most high school kids wind up broke because they spend all their money on drugs. Don't get caught up drinking and smoking weed. It's a trap and turns you into a broke looser with diminished drive. Over 18 and under 21 Reference a lot of the points I made in the previous section. They still apply to you. The only difference now is that when approaching in a public setting, where age isn't screened you ought to ask their age immediately. Example: You: "Hi, I saw you're looking at _________ . I think that's really cool!" Her: "Blahablahabla" You: "I'm __________ . Who are you?" Her: "Blahablahbla" You: "How old are you?" This can be done faster but that is pretty concise. College - I go to a smaller community college and I'm approaching five women a day. Don't make excuses. Even if the interaction is rocky, most women really only remember that you were the guy who had balls to approach them. After a week or two of approaching girls started waving to me, smiling, and saying "Hello" on all the time. This is a method called "planting seeds". Clubs - A lot of clubs will let people in who are 18 or older if they have focus on dancing. You can always look a place up on Google and call them and make a list of places that will let you in. Hookah Bars - These places are great because they facilitate conversation much better than clubs. You really should never pay for hookah because sometimes it's hit or miss. What I used to do is I designed walking/biking routes where I could pass these two hookah bars near my place three or four times. I would look at the patio. If there was a group of girls, I'd simple walk up and sit down with them. Now, this may seem odd, but I'm telling you, people love this. Just smile and you'll be alright. 21 and Older Reference my previous points. Now, it's up to you how often you go out and approach. Don't get caught up in the narrative of "club/bar women are sluts". Look, if you were to go out and interview 100 very attractive women, you'd find that most of those who are single go out regularly. This is how it's always been. Hot women go out dancing. They've been doing this since the industrial revolution. There is no limit to the amount of times you can go our or the number of approaches you can do. But you need to do this sober. Stop drinking. Learn to approach and dance sober and you'll have more fun than when you drank! Go and check out The Glorious Cold Approach Competition of 2016! Join it and break out of your anti-social box!
