Paul Janka, Escalation, and LMR | Free Ebook Download

This post has sort of spiraled out of control, but has been fun to write. I’m going to showcase some ideas from Paul Janka here. I’ll present him as one case study in the wide range of approaches we might learn from as men of game. He can be a controversial figure, and I like…




Muh Hypergamy!!!!! | Nah, Sometimes We Are That “Better Offer”

What an odd day for this humble daygamer. First, Heartiste wrote a post about a comment I made on that very fine blog (much respect to CH). They completely missed the point of my comment, but some of the readers got it. And then, after I made a comment on Chris Shepard’s thread, Chicken Little…




Tom Torero is a Thief | Street Hustle Book Review

This a review of Tom Torero’s Street Hustle daygame textbook. This post is about his book. But maybe more so, it’s an attempt for me to unpack why I don’t trust or respect that guy. Not anymore. There are different kinds of men in the world. I’ve met a lot of guys in the community….




Tom Torero’s NYC Daygame Infields || Volume and Warming Up

Have you seen this clip of Tom Torero doing daygame in NYC? Check it out. Highly recommend it. Not only is it a very good example of daygame in practice, but the **consecutive approaches** help detail some of the basic tenants of the daygame learning curve. There is a lot to see here, and not…




NYC: Commitments, Daygame, and 150 Sets

Greetings daygamers… from the Big Apple. I’ve been here a few hours. I’m excited. Life for me right now is a mix of promise and self-doubt. This is going to be a good week, a hard week, a wild week. I have hopes. I have curiosity. There is only one New York City and I…




The Education of a Young Girl | Sundance’s Daygame Lay

This is a story about Sundance’s* latest daygame lay. About little girls and the Secret Society. And about the role of experience in the sexual marketplace… Who’s got it, how it’s earned, and what that means. Let’s begin with this POV: Imagine you’re a young, 20-something guy, trying to date some cute girl you know…




The Red Quest | Early Frame Announcement

“For some reason, at least half a dozen women have told me on first dates or near first dates about abuse or “abuse,” and with every one of them I did the same thing: no more dates, no more escalation. Don’t need that shit. If she’s sharing it inappropriately early, run.” — The Red Quest…




Realness, Rollcall, Comradery

I had a great lunch this week with Runner and Buckle. Some smart dudes. Good conversation and Japanese food. That’s a strong formula for a memorable afternoon. Runner was a major mentor of mine. We met over 10 years ago, when I was already middle aged, but was just starting to get into game. He…




Metaphors: The Secret Society and Train Stations

From Rivelino and I in the comments of a recent post: “I’m still in awe at how quickly ‘strangers’ can touch each other’s lives.” — Nash so beautiful and so true. — Rivelino When Riv picked out that line from my most recent daygame lay report, it reminded me of parts of this story that…




Leads, Critical Mass, Girl Tornadoes, and Optimization | Two Dates

Daygame feels very alive for me this summer. I dated four girls in the last eight days… fucked two of them. I have had a limiting belief that I have no game in Spring and Summer. And that notion (like many others since I started to get my head above water as a player) is…
