Below is Part 2 of an interview I did with Steve from nycdaygame.com which was featured in my latest book Naughty Nomad’s Guide to New York City. We talk about day game escalation and discuss why being direct works better than indirect.
Edited Transcript Highlights:
What’s better: direct or indirect?
I’m a big fan of the direct approach. Some guys are more comfortable with it, but I’ve tested everything, and I’ve found direct works better. Indirect will get you into more conversations, but it’s less likely those conversations will become sexual. It creates a barrier because at some point you have to transition from a normal conversation into: ‘Hey I like you. Let’s hang out.’ With direct you’re clear for the get-go. You’re being honest, and girls don’t have a chance to classify you as a potential friend or non-sexual. Furthermore, if the girl is just walking down the street, it seems unnatural to just catch up with and stop her just to ask an indirect question. It makes you appear socially maladjusted.
