I came across Tony’s website by chance. What drew me into his way of teaching is the idea about attracting girls without canned material. Being “grown up” on Style’s Rules of the Game, I craved for freedom of talking to people in an improvisational manner, needless to say the Rules of the Game did not really work for me. Later, I read his main book A Thousand Tiny Failures, which turned out to be an easy read and very entertaining. I also read his day game kindle edition book, I Hope It’s Sunny Out, which I liked for its simplicity and realism (I even rated in on Amazon, you guys can check).
A couple of months later, it just happened that my friend and I decided to meet in Vancouver (I live in Saskatoon) and I realized that now is my chance to train my skills with girls. I emailed Tony and we met next day near Victoria park. We spoke for around 30 minutes and he opened two girls and well as made me open him as if he were a girl, who walked down the street, and later provided me with an insight about the flakes in my body language, tone, and attitude. From this, I clearly realized that he knew more than I and so I decided to take his bootcamp.
For three days it was almost a one-on-one coaching in the downtown of Vancouver. The first day was the most challenging but the most interesting. How to approach girls from behind without creeping them out. How to approach from the front, if everybody is walking fast. On day two for at least an hour we were working on how to make a girl stop, give you a hand and make her do a spin in an enjoyable way. And then it went further – how to touch a girl, how to engage in the physical contact asap but naturally. My model of the world was torn to pieces.
On day one I was quite nervous. Nevertheless, the exercises that Tony asked me to do, related to being in the moment, helped to regain a calm but positive attitude.
I was never thinking about associations and insights as tools to build interesting conversations. Day 2 and especially day 3 were devoted to that. These tools also help you in creating an opener right on a spot, instead of using something standard. Girls reacted to Tony really well. You will see them to stop and immerse in the conversation at a distance of around 60 cm (shorter than usual) right from the first few seconds.
What I liked about Tony’s system the most is his sales guy approach. Know what you want and go there no matter what. Be a man! Assume the sale, assume she wants you. These skills will be very useful in achieving all kinds of goals, not just related to girls.
A word for immigrants – being not born in Canada is not that bad. I could relate to Russian, European, Iranian, Brazilian girls (!hot stuff!) very well and there were plenty of them on the streets of Vancouver.
I hope you guys find it helpful,
