Reply To: Is it a numbers game?
I generally agree with this—but the idea of the numbers game is that that any percent of 0 is still 0, and you’re never going to get everybody.
But yeah–I don’t like the “practice on everybody” philosophy either–because both the guy and the girl knows it’s meaningless unless you’re putting on a really good act. That’s why so many so-called “PUA”s have terrible success rates compared with normal guys who happen to be comfortable with girls.
That said, if you’re stuck at the beginning, you DO need to practice a lot just to see what you’re capable of, and how interpersonal interactions like this work.
