No one on the planet has a 100% # close rate. 20 in a row? Sure. But closing EVERY girl you ever open?: Doesn't happen.
I know that something like that doesn't happen. I was mentioning the 20% or 20 girls from the context of what was said earlier which was =>
As far as why your success rate can't be higher. Think of it like this. Out of 100 girls:
20 have boyfriends (if online probably 10 have boyfriends and the other 10 are getting 100 messages a day)
20 Aren't in a mental place where they will allow themselves to be picked up
20 aren't attracted to you for reasons outside of your control
20 are at the wrong time.
thats leaves 20 +/- girls out of the approach that are open and willing to be seduced by you. The most successful pick up artists can probably number close all 20 girls and lay 10 for a success ratio of 50%. Aspiring artists like you and me will lower success rates.
Don't assume that everyone on this forum is "aspiring."
Well, I was referring to all of those who are trying to improve their pick-up skills, dating, etc. like myself.
I end up garnering 0 girls out of all the 100 girls that I approached.
So what? Open 100 more girls then.
What do you mean so what? If I ended being rejected by that many girls then that would be insane. I mean, I've never even met any guy ever in my life who has said that they have even come close to approaching that many girls in his life. Not mention, what if even after all those 100 rejections, I end up not learning what I have been doing wrong, because all the girls you approach will never tell you the truth and even that I know and ask all just basically say to keep trying. Furthermore, what if I approach another 100 girls and I still fail with all of them? Then what if I open up another 100 girls and I still fail with all of those ones too, and so on and so on in an endless cycle of being a loser.
Look, I am just trying to make what if statements for the sake of them, my point is that because guys like me have a much less than 20% chance of getting a good date along with the fact that I have already failed with several girls in my life obviously means that the odds are not in my favor for guys like me. So if after approaching hundreds of girls none of them end up being a legitimate success for me, then it would turn out to be one of the saddest numbers games that I ever played in life. It would be as if I ended up being a pitiful gambling sucker. I wish I had an in-field PUA coach to guide me on what I am doing wrong, but they either seem ridiculously expensive or practically impossible to find.
Amazing, hot, available, wonderful girls are alone all over the place. Look around!
Really?! According to my experience I very rarely see one that is hot and available. How are you able to see numerous amounts of them? Please enlighten me.
For starters you need to lose ALL of the limiting beliefs that you currently possess. You seem quite attached to those beliefs however. If you can't drop them, I don't know what to tell you. If you can, then start reading through the forum here and grabbing some of the golden advice that's all over the place.
Try not to think of it so much that you are trying to "get" something from the girl and just have normal convos with them. [/quote]
I try so hard to drop them when I am around others. I never complain or look like I am sulking around those I don't know or I am not close with. I always try my best to have a good time with those people and they seem to have no problem being around me at all.
Believe, I would love to drop all of these "limiting beliefs" that I have, but I am ambivalent as to whether or not it would be wise for me to risk my pride, confidence, and reputation at the cost of approaching hundreds of girls.
Don't give up bro. The materials you have been studying are not a match for you. Stick around the forum. Ask specific questions on your sticking points. Hang in there.
Well then, this might be a stupid question, but besides this Forum, how I am suppose to know for sure what PUA materials are a match for me so that I don't waste precious time and money on those that are useless?
