So *learning the true desires and motivations of women*, and fitting in with them, is the opposite of *inner game*.Women want to calibrate US, so learning to calibrate THEM is the opposite of game, inner game – not to mention self-esteem.I’m 41 now and definitely look every bit of 37 after partying my way through my 20’s and 30’s.
When I started practicing Game, I failed miserably.
Women who had been giving me eyes were turned off mere seconds after I had opened my mouth.
Hold doors, don’t hit a girl, protect women because they are fragile.
In second grade I got in a fight with three boys who were picking on my best friends sister.
It’s teachings were not designed for tall, good-looking men who already had decent social skills and the confidence to escalate.
Game, in it’s early incarnations, was invented and refined by men whose physical and social shortcomings necessitated a scientific approach to seduction.If a physically unattractive man starts blatantly hitting on a woman with the first words out of his mouth, it probably won’t go well. Ironically, I was much more successful once I reverted to acting like my idiot twenty-one year old self, stating my intent to take girls home minutes after introducing myself.He’s forcing her to make an immediate choice to let him hit on her, before he’s shown her any reason why she should do so. What I had figured out was this: If you’re good-looking and carry yourself well, you’re playing a different game than everyone else.But put yourself in the shoes of the same woman being approached by a different man. In the terms of The Mystery Method, you have accomplished most or all of the Attraction stages before you’ve even opened your mouth.A tall, handsome, well-dressed guy who came into the bar with a group of similarly attractive and cool-looking friends. As long as you don’t fuck up that attraction by coming across as try-hard, you can skip right ahead to building comfort and escalating.Good-looking men can still get a lot of value out of standard game theory, but they also need to refine their own style in most situations.
