Clubbing. The love of our teenage Saturday nights -and not only. I remember when we were waiting for the Saturday to come and go to the big clubs where our main goal was, of course, to pickup women.
We were buying the most trendy clothes at the time (eg Levi’s 501) and of course the necessary hair gels and the cologne (usually snatched by those who had bigger brothers and they were sharing with the rest of us -don’t look at today, 90s were the best time for friendships too) and we were going out for what else, to find women.
Clubs were “eliminated” the good old discos and in turn they were the places where you could meet women. Usually women were more than men in clubs, something the staff was helping, as I believe that the staff were trying (and keep trying) to keep a good proportion of men-women so there are more women inside (with the most beautiful of course being at the hot spots of each club) so men keep staying in the club drinking (because as it is known, the drink eliminates every social phobia) but also buying drinks for them.
If you are old enough, you may remember the face control from the club’s staff on Saturday nights.
An era without duck-faces, stupid-phones and miserable selfies to show to the others that we are having fun (the “fake” fun of today).
Going to a club was the absolute way to meet a woman. Although there has always been the fear of approaching, the only thing you needed was a push from a friend, a relatively good appearance (if you watch any old school Pickup Master, you will notice that they always watch their outfits and of course their hairs) and sometimes some dancing skills.
Game was relatively straightforward, mainly because women were going there for the same purpose, but also because there was no internet (and many of today’s activities) to have opportunities to meet other people. And guess what, they did not needed any PUA stuff and pseudo-Alpha male techniques to fuck or get to know a woman, people were used to meet each other all the time. So, let’s honor the old dudes, who they had to do all of these without the help of any instructor and book, while having to deal with yesterday’s social situations.
Lately the scene has begun to change. What I have noticed is either men are more than women in the clubs/bars, or that there are groups with a lot of people. And I’m not talking about big sets of women, but mixed groups where there are and some men too (usually friends), making the approach more difficult, especially to people who are not used to approach mixed sets.
On the one hand, the economic crisis is certainly a cause, where a lot of people can’t withstand going out anymore (and they can’t withstand even more in the years to come, as the real financial crisis is yet to come) and they are unable to give money to go to a club or bar for drinks (plus the taxi or other additional costs that goes along with a Saturday’s night).
On the other hand, the internet and the other social media, there are many people who prefer to stay in their house and have fun over there, instead of going out (there are many people who rather staying in on a Saturday night).
I’m sure that the biggest and most “in” club of the coming years will be the Facebook, where groups of people will be connecting online at nights, “partying” and… sharing fake news, while making use of likes and other emoji reactions FB added recently, to keeping the interest of its zombie users (yes, zombies, as an experiment correlates the Facebook addiction with cocaine). Let’s FB-arty baby.
In addition to this problem, of the few women in clubs, there are and some other problems I will write about below:
-For example, the women who are working for the bar/club and they are sitting close to the entrance on purpose so they can fool the customers to think that they are customers too so there will be an interest to them. Many times those women happen to be waitresses or bartenders of these bars and are going there with their friends to make the bar seems as having many customers.
-The staff who are suspicious of the “game”, where their eye constantly looking at men for “suspicious” movements and can make you feel ashamed in order to “save” the…innocent girl from you. Many of them are betas and may the are interested in some of these girls too, hoping in this case girls will like them. When something like that happens, meaning if they whould come to you and (cock)block you, will see them to sit for hours at the girls’ table, and maybe they will even buy them drinks, hoping of course to “reward” them for their… bravery.
-Her -usually ugly- friends, who are few and keep her in the middle. If they realize that you are trying to pickup their queen and you have not received the green light from her, they will get in the middle. This is something many girls do, but it’s a problem, especially if you are in your first steps to the game. Of course this is not always the case, sometimes the friends of a girls I approach, gave me room when they saw that she was interested too.
-The smarter-than-her phone, which keeps the girls busy all the time and they haven’t time to play the eye-contact game with no one. You can approach them completely cold, but you are in danger of being a loser because they will misinterpret your intentions (they are often take it unkindly and can say “can’t you see that I’m talking/busy“?). In this part, the two “problems” mentioned above, will come to “save” her.
-Some girls (mostly under the age of 24) who likes to make fun of men. They usually do it when they are approached by someone who has not strong game or if he’s mucj older than her, while other girls do it with satisfaction (I have heard it).
The increasing number of men who want to pick up women, causes some other problems in “night game”, because the going to the best clubs/bars, making the staff more suspicious and causes them to have their eyes open (as I said above). They do this for two reasons (in my opinion), first because they do not want girls to be bothered by men, with the fear of not coming back again and secondly they are more interested in buy the girls some drinks before they approach them.
But is not only that. Let’s say a new club opens (with the simple name “Club” for example and of course if I was Apple, I would trademark it as my own name and then I would sue anyone else who’ name his club as… “club”). In the beginning it will be full of women, until men find out that it has plenty of fish and begins to fill up with a lot of men too.
So women will leave this club and never come back (because the club has been “messed up”, as a girl told me when I asked her about), so the club will slowly turns into a… military camp. So, after that, the owner can only organize various events to keep the interest alive (in a nutshell, gathering women, because truth be told, a good club is a club with lots of women).
A video that shows the fun of the good old days. Besides the right proportions between men and women, the people back then were going out to have fun, something that does not happens today (much has changed in our lives, that’s for sure).
I’m not saying that this type of game is “over” and that you have to take it out of your choices, but with time this is where is going (and I am talking about the few selections of girls and not about a comparison on “night VS day” game). Surely it will be the choice of those who want to go out and dancing (although the salpa parties will take the most people in the future and in a few years no one will want to go to clubs), but the night -game- is changing, maybe slowly but is changing. See also the rise of other alternative ways of entertainment. And the increase in those who are into Day, Social and/or Online Game, confirms that (although not always for this purpose).
Without affects you the appearance of the sexy girls, notice a difference between this video and the above. What I wrote a few lines above? Yes, yes, “events to keep the interest of a club”. If there were 10 girls for every man in a club, surely events like these would not be very trendy.
The first time I noticed this was in some big clubs in Halkidiki (GR) a few years ago, where despite the countless people in the clubs, there were not many women and, of course, and I saw it again in some other big cities in Europe. Note that I can not be in all the major clubs in Europe at the same time to count people and maybe you didn’t noticed it yet in your city but you will see it in a few years (or sooner).
I believe that the good game will be played more in the VIP places of the big clubs (ie the hottest girls will be there) while the rest of the men will have to find girls at the rest of the club. Also great importance will be given to the style/appearance of men and certainly to their game.
Since men are more than women in the clubs today (see the pictures below), the competition between the men will certainly grow. So surely just a beard will not bring you at the top of the men and will be required to be in style and have strong game in order to be successful with women.
Closing this article, I’ve added some random photos I found after a quick search. They added here to show the great difference between men and women in European nightclubs. As you can see, men are a lot more than women.
