As a 41 year old male who separated from a wife of 11 years in April of 2013, I didn’t have a clue what to do as far as getting back into the dating scene. I read and reviewed endless amounts of literature and theory related to the pick up community and it seemed like the more I read… the more overwhelmed and confused I felt. There is so much out there regarding theory, routines, flow charts, what to do, what not to do. What I needed was something simple. I searched for local dating coaches and came across Tony. I checked out reviews pertaining to his bootcamps and ordered his novel “A Thousand Tiny Failures” and his day game guide “ I Hope It’s Sunny Out”. His writing is fun and simple, yet insightful. There is more emphasis put on going out and putting the work in doing approaches as opposed to studying theories, using routines and tricks or manipulation. The experts say that whenever you want to learn a new skill and shorten the learning curve, you need a mentor, and I knew that Tony would be that guy.
I was very nervous and was experiencing high levels of anxiety the first day I met with Tony D. After a 45 minute introductory discussion where Tony D asked about my background, dating history, etc. he branched off and explained a few basic insights, philosophies and concepts for Day Gaming. Immediately we went out to the street where he demonstrated how to approach with confidence so you don’t scare or freak the woman out. We role-played for about a ½ hour working on my approaches. This was extremely hard for me, it was uncomfortable and really tested my boundaries. I found it difficult to actual touch anyone (kino) during the initial opening.
We moved on to my first real approach and Tony picked out the set and sent me in. I just went, I got my legs moving without thinking, which helped reduce my approach anxiety tremendously. I was shocked and surprised at how receptive….and forgiving women can be. The first day I approached 6 sets. All were very appreciative and flattered that I had approached them. Tony was quick to point out all of my “newbie” mistakes and helped me make instant corrections in body language, eye contact and voice tonality.
After just a couple days using Tony’s simple techniques I was easily able to hook a large percentage of sets. I attempted to stay in set for as long as possible, even if they were married, engaged or had a boyfriend in order to use it as experience to strengthen my verbal/conversation skills. (which was atrocious at the beginning of the mentorship and something I am still working at trying to improve).
The women I have been Day Game approaching in Vancouver for the most part were not “just average” women. When I saw a woman, and she clearly stood out in comparison to other women in the vicinity (other men were obviously checking her out), I approached. Over the course of the month, I approached exactly 100 women. After the first 4 days of day gaming I had dates with 3 different women for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.
The first two weeks of the mentorship was crucial, and Tony systematically feed me small amounts of information to apply in-field at precise moments. This allowed me to absorb and apply the information in a productive way to help me slowly get better at my day game without feeling overwhelmed or confused.
Stats for My Month Mentorship:
Number Closed – 22
Available woman that I did not attempt to number close – 14 (8 were in a hurry)
Dated (Different Girls)- 6
Approached Married/Engaged Women – 8
Had Boyfriends (Allegedly) – 25
Women who were scared and scurried away after I opened– 6 (4 were Asians)
Woman who were not-receptive (Attitude) – 8
If you look at the ratio of receptive, available woman that I approached during the mentorship, I was able to number closed on 22 of the 39 sets (56%) that I attempted to number close on. I did not attempt to close on 14 of these sets for one of three reasons;
1# – They were not as attractive after I opened (4 with snaggle/yellow teeth/acne).
2# – The woman was in a hurry (7 late returning to work after a break).
3# – I just didn’t have the balls or was off for some reason (5) sets.
With continuous improvement on my verbal game by implementing teasing, push/pull, role-playing, future projection I know I will be able to number close a much higher percentage and slowly work towards closing the 9-10’s.
Reflecting on the month long mentorship I am still in awe. Blasting through my own limiting beliefs, approach anxiety and slowly working on my verbal game, I am now pulling woman that I could only fantasize or dream about when I was in my 20’s. Thanks to the mentorship with Tony, I have learned the skills and techniques that helped give me the confidence to pick up hot woman. I feel energized, re-born and am ready to make up for a lot of lost years chasing woman that I didn’t think I could get or that I deserved.
The mentorship program helped me realize that they key to having success learning these techniques and skills to have an open mind and realize that “it is you that is accountable for your success.” The students that have the quickest and most astonishing results are the ones that listen to what Tony has to say, absorb it, and then tried their best to apply it. This is not easy to do, and I times I struggled with too many “what if’s”, limiting beliefs, or “I don’t know if I can do this”. Tony knows what he is doing. He has been there. If you open your mind and do everything he says, you will transform into a new person.
I would like to give a heart-felt thank you to Tony for taking me as a client and allowing me to experience his mentorship program by helping to guide me towards making everlasting changes in my life. Tony is a genuine, fun and incredible person who truly cares about your success. If you want to learn how to successfully pick up hot women consistently by Day Gaming, I highly recommend Tony D’s Absolute Ability mentorship program.
