Let me start by saying that although it's a common theme in this forum, i still don't know the difference between direct and indirect game. As I said, I'm quite new to this and "The Game" doesn't say anything about this. At least not till the part I've read. Anyway, surely I'll find out about the different approaches in due time as I continue reading more material.
Direct is about laying out all the cards on the table and going straight up to the target and letting her know right away, from the get go,
what your initial feelings are towards her.
Here's a good common example of a direct approach: You walk past an
attractive girl, you run up to her and stop her for a moment and open
her by telling her that she looks absolutely amazing, and you just
wanted to let her know.
It's a very ballsy way of approaching
(in my opinion) because you don't waste time and you just
get straight to the point. It's also great because (as you
said) girls in the daytime are less likely to get hit on
during the day time so their not expecting to be
approached by guys. This is why day game
combined with Direct approaching is so
You're also completely catching
her off guard by coming off as so
casual. You come off as a guy
who had no intention of picking up a girl and
you just HAD to go over and tell how beautiful
she looked before you went on your merry way.
I admit, I have done this to a girl
before, on Tuesday, she wasn't as responsive (she was just like
"Ok oh, thanks...") but I didn't give a shit, aslong as I got
Some girls are more inclined and open to
others, some aren't, but hey that's the way of the world.
I've practiced by opening other girls and they've all
gone down well (I had a laughing contest with a
girl in the middle of Eastgate Shopping Centre
People may have been looking, we were REALLY
laughing like mad folk lol, but I didn't give a shit,
I knew I made her day and I felt really good
when I left.
You will eventually meet girls that are better than others,
and if they aren't as friendly, just brush it off, chances are
you'll never see them again so whats the point in mulling over it?
Right so onto indirect...
An inDirect approach would be something more under the
radar aspect like: You see an attract
girl, you run up to her and say something like: "Hey, sorry to
bother you, but who do you think lies more...Men or Women?"
This type of opener is one of the most commonly used
as it was created by Mystery. The thing about inDirect
is that although you're asking your target a question,
you may come off as a guy who is trying to hit on
her. Reason being because: He came all this way
to ask me a question? He's hitting on me...
He wants my opinion in a
nightclub? He's hitting on me...
I quoted that from Adam Lyons so yeah lol.
Anyway, indirect simply means that you're not being Direct about letting
the girl know about your intentions right away, you're either going to
go into a routine or talk to her about something irrelevant like
"what's your favourite flavour of bowling ball?", that kind of stuff.
Intitially (that last one) is to get her to laugh at the sheer randomness
of the question, if she laughs / complies, it's an IOI (indicator of interest)
and this allows you to proceed further.
The differences between direct and inDirect is a little self
explanatory but I'm sure you get the idea now?
I agree 100%. Drinking and sarging is probably a more lethal combination than drinking and driving. The former should also be illegal! It's the quickest path to a crash and burn.
Haha man I think drinking and driving is more dangerous
story I actually wanna tell you, it's irrelevant to the pickup discussion
but I think you might like the humor!
Back in...2010...I went with my 2 friends (lets call them Adam and Trent)
to JUICE nightclub in Midrand (you heard of it?) and we all got really drunk
one night. Fortunately for me I still maintained some order and was
still calibrated enough to let them know we should bounce (it was
at 2am) and I told em we should get some McDonalds on the way
back as it was a 20KM drive to back home. Inclined by my offer
the 3 of us got into Trents car and we set off.
At this point, I assumed Trent was sober enough to drive,
and me still being more drunk than being able to take shit
seriously...allowed him to drive
This is where shit got real
funny. Adam, wasted out of mind was sticking his head out the
window! While I was laughing my head off
I saw that Trent (the designated driver) wasn't looking
so grand is his head was kinda bobbing like a dead fish.
I asked him if was ok to drive (bear in mind that we're on the M1 and
we're probably going at a good 100km's and an unstable drunk-ish driver!)
and he said "yeah bro...i'm...ummm...oh fuck...." at this point I'm
like "SWEET JESUS O__O HE'S PISSED. HE'S FUCKING PISSED!!"
Trent quickly began to hit the 110KM mark and I tried to wake
Adam up. Adam was passed out from earlier because he
so wasted. Adam wouldn't wake up so I slapped his
face, that woke him up good and solid. He was like
"DUDE! WTF??" And i pointed to Trent and said "That's
WTF! We got a drunk fuckin designated driver!"
In about 2 seconds he went stonefaced O____O,
Trent had just hit the 120KM mark! Adam and I were
both shouting at one another on how to stop Trent from
veering off the road and killing us all! We tried to convice
the drunk sod to pull us over but he gave us a lecture
on pineapples and their theory on gravitation pulls.
We knew that you had to be completely wasted
out of your HEAD to say shit like that and
knowing we were probably gonna die,
we sat back...and began to pray.
Adam pulled out a bible from underneath the
car seat (i don't why a bible happened to be in
the car but whatever) and he began reciting "Oh
heavenly father..." and at this time I was in the
fetal position in the back seat cause Trent had
hit the 130KM mark, Trent starts
reciting bubblegum and the digestive system
in detail, so probably awaiting our final moments
we had to listen to this fool talk about chewing gum!
I knew this would be the final moments of my life...in a car with
a preaching semi drunk idiot and a wasted
driver! 140KM mark...at this point I felt
like shouting out the window
and calling for help, but the asshole
locked my back windows!! I told Adam
we had to do something or shit was gonna
get real. 150KM...finally hit...I was wondering
why no cops were on the highway?
Adam got a grip of himself and shouted at Trent to pull over,
Trent then looked glazed at Adam...and puked ALL OVER Adam's lap!!
Adam began to scream like this
and I began to laugh my head off! xD
Adam was literally covered in a puddle of puke, I mean, the orangy
kind and with bits of hot dog sticking out, it was REALLY gross!
Luckily for us that was the saving grace that made Trent come
to, he slowed down to 110KM...then what Trent asked next
I knew could only come out of his mouth...he then
said "So we still get McDonalds or what?"
The guy was travelling at 150KM, wasted out his
mind, he puked all
over my best friend and he nearly killed us all
and he still had the audacity to ask us if we
were still gonna get food!!
It was one of the funniest and scariest nights of my
life man...scarred for life and won't drink again but
funny as hell! But ask yourself this quickly: Which
is worse...getting crash and burned by a girl...
or possibly dying at the hands of a drunk driver lol
One last thing. I saw your nickelodeon-fantasy video on youtube. Dude it is SOO spot on. Keep it up! TV and movies keep selling us these fantasies of how beautiful women can just randomly fall into our lap. Let's not blame the idiots who sell us such bullshit, let's just make sure that we don't buy it from them.
Thanks by the way man I'm glad someone enjoyed that video, it's cool to see
that people have the same idea and agree with me on the perspective!
Although the concept from Nick. and Disney is completely false it's
sad to see that AFC's and kids have to put up with that bullshit.
