As a person who does more indirect game than direct I can convey you need to have the right frame and mentality.
It's not about "Oh I want to pick this girl up", you need to come from a frame of "I like meeting new people and I do this shit all the time". If you have that frame you won't care on the outcome.
So for instance. I am 29 and I am back in college while working. I pick up college chicks every now and then , but most of them are 18-20 so they are really stupid.
Two weeks ago there was a HB9 in one of my classes. I opened her immediately during the break. Here's the scenario.
Me: Oh hey, I wanted to come up and say hi as you seem interesting and we have some alignments.
Me: Yea , we both are white , blonde and clearly take care of ourselves
Me: I'm Chase by the way and you are?
Me: Nice to meet you I think it's important to meet new people so it's nice to meet another person with some similar alignments today
Her; haha nice to meet you too.
Me: Well this class seems really intriguing I think we should exchange information in case either one of us gets behind or has any questions. So it's not weird though we should def partner up for some of the group activities.
I have hung out with this girl x2 times and made out her with her thus far.
So let's say she blew me off... My indirect game comes from a position of not hitting on you just interested to know you.
So let's say hypothetically she comes at me with this....
Her: UM I have a boyfriend
Me: Wow... you move really fast... I wasn't stating I had a interest in you like that
Her: (Disarmed) Oh okay I was just saying
Me: Do you think every male that says Hi is hitting on you or am I just that special?
Her: Embarrassed < proves her self>
Here's another instance.
Her: Uh No thanks,
Me: Okay fair enough, I'm just interested in meeting new people that have like minded qualities ,but I understand a extrovert when I see one. Perhaps one day you'll break out of your shell...
As you can see it doesn't matter what the outcome is I am coming from a position of being social. Not out predatory gaming women at a college.
For the girls that are sitting down learn to talk and immediately sit down. This demonstrates confidence and you can always leave. It also social proofs the area around you cause all they see is a dude talking to either a set of girls or a girl.
So my advice start coming from the frame I said above. That way if you get rejected or fowl up you don't give a shit as this is a every day thing for you. It is for me , which is why I open anyone anytime anywhere. It isn't a thing. Rarely do I get blown out. The mentality I carry allows me to on average rack up about 10 numbers a week and two dates a week without even going out to major places. I meet tons of women on a regular. So it's easy for me to blow off some because I am always getting new ones. As soon as you implement that in your life you realize women are a dime a dozen and it's easy pickings for a seasoned PUA or Social man.
In fact I do this at night clubs regularly. The funny thing is I've had women reject me and later on in the night they see me talking to everyone at the club they come and try to earn my attention because I am the guy who just seem to know everyone ( but that's what's conveyed but really I am just meeting everyone for the first time) People don't know that though they just see what's around them.
Lastly, who gives a fuck about a reputation in college when it comes to having the balls to approach a female. Anyone who makes fun of you or thinks ill of you because you have the balls to do so is either envious or doesn't have the balls themselves. Start caring less about what others think when it comes to this skillset. This skillset alone will grow your reputation not tarnish it. Learn to have fun and live life to the fullest brother
Thanks bro I really liked that answer. i think i need to work on the frames more cause from what your saying about it, it would change a lot for me. Imma definitely try that out. What are your thoughts on an HB10 whos 18 but shows interest but at the same time has a bf? How should I go about it. I dont really go after girls with Bf but she is too fine and is interested. Plus i know her bf hes a prick lol. Any tips or advice on that if you have been in a similar situation?
