I started 2017 in Kiev, finishing a half a year jaunt while waiting for my Russian Visa. Then I moved permanently to St. Peterburg on January 11 for work. So actually a couple of days ago marked my one year anniversary in Mother Russia.
When I started my Daygame journey in Dublin, I was lacking quality and volume. So I moved to Tallinn in mid-2016, where I’ve lived a year there. In Tallinn, girls were hot! Quality was definitely there but it’s a half a million city so volume was low. But this is where I’ve really mastered solo Daygame.
Finally, since I’ve moved to St. Peterburg I got what I wanted, a city with quality and volume. Therefore, I haven’t felt the need to go on Daygame trips (aka Jaunts) anymore. I’ve been a couple of weeks in Moscow, a reconnaissance trip in Rostov-On-Don and recently to Hong Kong. But as RickyRoma pointed out once: “Pretty much everywhere else you go would be a step-down”. Obviously, it can be argued depending on the kind of girls you likes. But, I personally totally agree with him. I have never lived in a city with so many hot girls! I’m a lucky bastard! 😄
So yeah guys, I’ve been almost all 2017 gaming in Russia.
Statistics – Daygame only
As a reminder, I don’t track my Nightgame, Social circle or other kinds of games. The below numbers are purely Daygame stats.
ed. I really thought I’ve done way more! At mid-2017, I was at around 358 approaches. So I’ve done only 128 approaches during the second half of the year. Well… I got a big work assignment from October, so I guess it makes sense.Over half of my approaches (282) were in malls, mainly Galeria. It’s cold in St. Peterburg.
Same as RoyWalker in his 2017 review, 99% of the time, I have no idea what I’m going to say to the girl until I’m in front of her. I’m happy to stay that this part has been internalized. It comes “naturally” now. I’m not saying I can’t improve that in-set part anymore but the foundations are there and solid enough. Go through the 1000+ sets of hell and it will happen eventually.
1 contact out of 4 approaches
I’ve done a bit better than the benchmark 1 contact out of 5 approaches. I’m quite happy with that ratio. Hopefully, Daygame Infinity will help improve this ratio even further.
1 Date 1 out of 4.5 contacts
Same as for the approach to contact ratio. I’m pretty happy with the 1 Date 1 out 4 approaches ratio. To be fair, since I haven’t traveled much, it didn’t have to rush the text game part.
Date 1, the filter date
Out of the 21 girls, I went on Date 1 with, I’ve only managed to get 9 of them for Date 2. But I dug deeper into the data, and here the interesting fact. Out of the 9 that I got out on a Date 2, I’ve gotten a lay with 5 of them. I’m still hoping to get a notch with the 6th one, which is the Russian Tourist Student.
So aside from her, I got a lay with the 5 other girls that I went out at least on Date 2.
It seems like, in general, if they agree to come out for a Date 2, sex is on the table at some point, on Date 2 or later.
2.25 dates to get a lay
It took me on average 2.25 dates to get a lay. It’s a bit over the benchmark 2 dates to get laid. So I guess it’s not too bad considering that Russian girls, generally, need more time according to some gurus and players.
1 lay out of 54 approaches
Apparently, “advanced” Daygamers hit 1 lay out of 25-30 approaches. Well, like RoyWalker, I still have a lot way to go…
12 lays in total
9 Daygame lays and below are the lucky ladies.
- 18-year-old Ukrainian – Kiev – January 3 – Date 3 Lay (I just realized that I didn’t write a lay report for her)
- Russian singer – St. Petersburg – February 11 – Date 4 Lay
- Kazakh Pilates Instructor – St. Petersburg – April 11 – Date 4 Lay
- Bride Makeup Artist – St. Petersburg – May 24 – Date 3 Lay
- The soon-to-be-divorced stalker – St. Petersburg – July 7 – Date 3 Lay
- Architect student – St. Petersburg – July 28 – Date 4 Lay
- Siberian Philosophy Teacher – St. Petersburg – August 1 – Date 1 Lay
- Small Indonesian intern – Hong Kong – November 16 – Date 1 Lay
- Filipina Domestic Helper – Hong Kong – November 22 – Date 1 Lay
… and 3 other lays (Social and Nightgame)
- French Speaking Blondie – St. Petersburg – Social Circle – September – Date 2 Lay
- Crazy Russian-Yakut girl – St. Peterburg – Nightgame – September – Date 1 Lay
- Polish Erasmus Student – St. Petersburg – Nightgame – December – Date 3 Lay
Some thoughts, learnings, improvements for 2018
Addressing the approach to lay ratio
I don’t think I will be doing much more approaches. I still have a lot to learn but over the past 2 years, I’ve been dedicated almost most of my free time and travel to Daygame, especially time in the field approaching, at the expense of other parts of my life.
Don’t get me wrong, it was a mandatory phase to go through and overall I enjoyed it, especially the lays! It was more than worth it. I need to think about addressing the balance with the other aspects of my life, and approaching more is not gonna help much. A good 500 approaches should be enough.
But what I will work on from a Daygame perspective is the approach the lay ratio. Hitting 1 lay out of 30 approaches would be great!
Dealing with LMR
I believe I’ve made significant improvements on the verbal and physical escalation part but as pointed out by other players on the Polish Erasmus Student post, it seems like I could “dance” better and smother to deal better with LMR and get the lay faster or more earlier into the date.
To be honest, at the moment, I really don’t enjoy LMR at all. It takes me too much time and it’s affected too much my next day with is usually a working day.
Nothing is sure at the moment but, I’m thinking about Tokyo in Spring, going back to Vilnius and Tallinn. I got a glimpse of Zagreb over New Year Eve with RoyWalker and RickyRoma and I quite enjoyed it. I might go back to Ukraine again, likely to Odessa/Nikolaev. Suggestions are welcome!
Regarding this blog
Some of you might have noticed that toward the end of 2017, I’ve been struggling to keep this blog updated due to lack of time and other priorities. I still have 5 posts in draft, some Date reports from December and monthly reviews. I thought posting this yearly review would be more useful.
I will probably have to write fewer Date reports, move from monthly to quarterly report posts and maybe start doing some mindwank-ish posts.
