After that first night out with Tony T and Burto, we were told to meet early in Covent Garden for around 11 am for a day game session. I got there a bit earlier and had breakfast with one of the other students, who had come from out of town to do the day game bootcamp.
We met Johnny, Krauser and Suave outside a pub who explained that this day would be focused on day game. I was taken aback at first, fuck I just about learnt how to approach women in the night, approaching women in the day time? Frightening. However as Johnny went through what we should do and the reasons why he preferred day game. It all started to make sense, in fact in my eyes day game seemed perfect in comparison to the night game I was shown. So the four students split up and were sent out with an instructor each. I ended up with Krauser and approached a little blondie who happened to be from Wolverhampton.
Damn it was exhilerating, I’d never done this before, her reaction massaged my ego and calmed my nerves. I could see her showing off the ‘pussy tingle’ that we’d been told to keep an eye on from the off. I was thinking damn this is easy and fucking fun until it was around 7-8 minutes in and she was sort of waiting. I mean I never knew back then what it was until I ejected and Krauser asked me if I got her number. “Her number?”, “No you never told us how to close”. He laughed and so did I after a moment realising what an idiot I was, I was thinking of the whole thing so methodically that I’d forgotten to do the most simple thing.
The eye opening thing about this day was how many women actually stopped, it was basically approach approach approach, out of 50 women, only 4 did not stop, 2 listened to what I said and smiled and told me they would love to talk but could not as they were in a rush.
It was brilliant for my confidence, I could not remember feeling that great talking to women in a long time. I gained numbers aplenty, numbers with which I had no idea with what I would do at the time. You could call it a successful initiation into the world of day gaming. I still look back on that day as a great day. I never got laid from any of those girls but fuck me I entered a whole new world of day game that I never knew had existed.
After an exhausting day of trawling the streets during the day game session, we went back to the private members club to be prepared for a night time session. Here we got to meet the rest of the gang, our very own Jimmy Jambone showed up and he taught us all about attraction using some of the Mystery Method material. A lot of that still sticks with me and I use it often as it’s something that does not require evolution. Having not read The Game, this was all new shit to me.
Next was Tony, that Tony who gave me a terrible time the night before, making me want to just skip over the whole night game experience. He explained how important body language was, maybe he over explained a bit looking back but I remembered those tips he gave and over time my body naturally started to take it on.
Finally before we headed out, we were introduced to the whole gang. Some of the guys had turned up at certain points but it was nice to meet them all. The 4 students got paired off with 2-3 instructors and we headed off into town. Perry and Shameem were the guys I was going with.
Fuck these two were crazy, Perry was a fun light hearted guy who clowned around whilst Shameem was always so serious..or was he? I couldn’t fucking tell. Perry explained why he had thought up RSG (apparently not true) as he plowed from instructor to instructor (Gambler) and found himself wasting money and not learning anything. He said the one thing he learned was prudence. He still felt guilty that they were charging for the weekend as he thought the stuff should be free until Shameem reminded him that he hadn’t actually dedicated any time to teaching the students.
Burto suggested that we hijack a Plenty Of Fish party in Leicester Square which turned out to be absolute tosh and we moved on. We all split up and Perry and Sham took me down to a posh bar in Covent Garden. As we went down the stairs we noticed a group out on a hen party. Avoid at all costs is what I’d been taught, these women were looking for male attention but not for a night or more just for the moment, they were out to celebrate a woman’s marriage and most of their attention is placed on making sure that one woman and not themselves enjoys that night. Perry was pointing and laughing at them, I never knew but it was hilarious and still is looking back on it. At the bar, Perry nudged me as there were 3 pretty girls standing next to me waiting to be served, a 6 and two 7’s. The conversation went something like this (nearly 2 years ago now I think):
Me: Hey guys, you’re here for the hen party?
Girl 1 (7): Does it look like we’re dressed for that ridiculous hen party?
Me: Well, short skirts, awful tops, seems like you’d fit in perfectly
Girl 2 (7): So tell us cheeky, what’s brought you to this upmarket bar sipping on your grey goose?
Me: You’ve got a really weird accent, I’m surprised they let you in!
Girl 3 (6): We’re from Somerset, you’re quite the funny guy eh? Tell us what do you do?
Me: I’m a refuse collection engineer
Not sure I should cringe or laugh looking back on that but it fucking worked. All of a sudden Girl 1 and 3 laughed and excused themselves as they had to rush to the toilet. This was possibly the first successful open I had done and it had no fluency, no script, nothing, yet it worked. Girl 2 enquired how I managed to afford to be in such a bar when I was a ‘dustbinman’. I told her how we earned good money, probably more than her…she was a doctor.
I built attraction by DHVin myself (ugh) very well thanks to Jimmy Jambone’s work earlier and I could see she was attracted until I saw what I thought was a fatal mistake on my part, her ring finger was occupied, not fully, but it was an engagement ring. As her friends came back, Perry and Sham who had been listening to the whole conversation told me I’d done brilliantly and that they had seen 2 of the 3 pussy tingle. That made me feel great, and probably enhanced the size of my boots so I actually fitted in them. I told them about the ring, they said don’t worry, enjoy the set and pull out whenever I felt right, or even get one of them to help to exit.
I spoke to all 3 girls together than the 2 that had run off to the toilet left me isolated with engaged doctor girl. She told me how she felt this strange attraction to me and how it was weird, she explained how she was moving away soon to live with her fiancee in Denmark. We spoke about travelling and India, God she practically dropped the DHV spikes into my hands. The bell rang and the bar was closing, she asked for my number and said she would love to see me again. A number close that I did not initiate, excellent! Perry and Sham were instructed to get me out that night and to open many sets, but they left it at that, they were happy with what I had done in one set, so we finished up and headed home. Of course I was pretty chuffed, my first night game close. How ridiculous does that fucking sound?
Sunday was a day of recollection of our thoughts on the night game and day game bootcamp. All of the students went through the weekend with Krauser and Johnny, explaining how they felt about the whole experience and what they’d plan to do. A sort of CRM if you would. Krauser then showed us a little project of his and how he saw the different types of men. It was a superb presentation, explaining the qualities of Alpha’s, Beta’s, Omega’s and Sigma’s. The examples used have stuck with me for a long time and I still reference the model when in doubt. They invited us out to go day game, I didn’t mind as I wanted to ask Johnny a whole load of questions. Burto and Suave turned up after and we just gamed a few sets and said goodbye. At the time I did not know it but that little segment at the end would mean that I met up once again with Suave, Johnny, Jimmy and Krauser and that eventually I would become Bojangles and would end up writing this.
* Somerset Doctor – I did see her again, and yes we did and she is happily married now. A lay off my first bootcamp.
