Heya, no probs - It was intended in the spirit of helping =o)

In part I was definately slammin on you because I've enjoyed your posts &
every once in a while simply wish you'd expend the same effort towards PU
...I do concede that without knowing where to direct that effort can be

Logistics can, in part, be a matter of awareness - are you aware of what's
going on? Not simply as a brief snap-shot but as part of a larger whole.
Perhaps it's one of the reasons why I prefer an 'analog' approach to PU in
preference to a 'digital' view... hmm...

Anyways... A guy walks into a bar....

....shitty jokes aside, which bar? at what time? why?

I guess the answer is probably best explained by logistics - assuming you
take the time to pay attention to things in general, you start to notice
that there is often a certain 'rhythm' to it all. For sure there'll be
anomalies like people who work nights or bars etc yet the majority work 9-5
and go out fri/sat... It's slightly different for different age groups and
cultures etc - but they each have their own rhythm...

So... which goddamn bar?

Well we all have our own preferences and some places cater for those to a
greater or lesser extent... and you go out and visit them all to find out
which ones you like! ...and you visit them at different times!

Two of my favourite places where I live are on the same road and they've
both targeted a different clientel in effect meaning that you tend to get
different types of people in each. They both share the same features pretty
much - both do food, have comfy sofas, a small dance area and serve
drinks... In the daytime both are fairly quiet a slight difference in
customer type but not all that great a difference...

Friday nights... One of them is HEAVING, packed to the roof with loud
music whereas the other has a strict door policy, gets busy but not too busy
and has a piano player for a large proportion of the night and it's not too
loud to talk (makes it a bit awkward admittedly). It's pretty much the same
across town throughout all the bars in varying amounts - some places better
for talking, others for drinking and dancing, some for both and so on...

Once you have an idea of the kinda places you like it's much easier to
'plan' your way through the evening without much thought. For examples sake
you've met a girl and decide to take her to a bar (not that I like bars of
course lol ) So the logistics could be something like ensuring a venue
change at some point... Which bar do you go to first?

I guess the vague FR answer might be "and then me and the girl moved to
another place" so avoiding that here's how I might go about deciding where
to go and in which order...

Out of the two bars above I'd probably go to the one that ends up heaving
first... it has the same comfort level initially ( i like my comfy sofas)
and it's possible to talk, as the night picks up and more people turn up the
atmosphere changes, the music comes on and gets louder, the occasional knock
becomes more frequent or whatever, it's taking longer to get served at the
bar etc... So you enjoy yourself for a while longer doing whatever and then
suggest (or insist lol) that you move on to another place... Now, the
second place has a much more 'pretentious' bunch of patrons and visited by a
few celebs - it has a good atmosphere, just less of a 'free for all' by the
same time in an evening...

So why not go to the 'better' one first?

Well, we assumed that a venue change is a good thing (if we didn't - assume
it now) so if we'd started in the 2nd bar imagine trying to tempt her with a
bar packed to the roof, too hot etc... it isn't gonna be that easy by
comparison. So we start with the 1st 'lesser' bar and the 2nd is a much more
appealing option - making it much easier to venue change.

On the same night out we have another 'logistical' problem - door policy...
the 2nd bar has a strict door code of 'cool','stylish' & expensive... only
a simple thing to be aware of yet you need to ensure that you BOTH are
wearing something acceptable as it gets stricter as the night progresses...

A few logistical options:

turn up early enough that it doesn't matter
ensure you both wear something appropriate
befriend someone who works the door or in the place
get on the guest list

...assuming you feel that you may not get in later the options change a
little - if you go there earlier before the guys on the door turn up you
should be able to stay there - the rest of the night might be fine if you
feel like it yet, if you really want to include a couple of venue changes
you need to have a fairly good idea of somewhere else that will let you in
and has an environment close to what you're looking for.

...and none of this is even assuming going somewhere for sex lol

For me this can be at times a bit of an issue as I like a wide range of
things yet because of the culture here I can make it easier or more
difficult for myself to get into places due to clothing... So 'logistically'
I have to dress in a way that will get me into as wide a range of venues as
possible unless I'm on a night out in a specific scene ( e.g. metal/goth)
and know I'm gonna stick to those places...

Other logistical things can be things like travel - i.e. does she have to
get the last train back anywhere? or some other thing that could curtail
the evenings activities...

Let's assume she does...

a few options

1. sex before she goes
2. enjoy the night and say goodbye when she has to leave
3. she stays and goes somewhere with you for sex

In other words we have a time constraint we're working with so, assuming we
have some influence over events, we have a deadline to work with or break...
If we want sex and want her to get the train then the game that you play has
to be geared up for that... If we want to have a fun night and know that sex
is outta the question and she can't stay over (because you didn't clean your
damn bathroom and don't have the required tp mountain) then running game to
influence a more guaranteed second meet could be more appropriate... the
same goes for the third option - different outcome, different game...

As ever there are loads of different things we could take into account and
that you will encounter lol

For example, I want sex before she goes - escalate as swiftly as possible,
get her wanting sex and make it happen by having the other logistics in
place to do that... Now this could be your place or the toilets in a
bar/alleyway round the back whatever... So your final place of
luuurve-making could determine what you talk about and seduce her with
during the night... For the option of breaking her time constraint you
might choose to escalate more slowly but steadily, dangling the carrot of
"the best is yet to come" in front of her so that she's getting to the peak
just before having to make that decision... No point in taking her to the
best place before she goes as there's nothing to look forward to or feel
like she's missing out on... work with the time constraint and arrive
there a very short while before she has to leave - give her a taste of it
before the clock attempts to take it away... which makes it easier for her
to decide to stay...

So why consider option 2 at all? well it all depends on context and what
you want... you see we could throw in the fact that she has something
important to do in the morning and will then be free all afternoon... once
you have some kind of awareness of what's going on you can work towards
different things - like meeting up tomorrow afternoon and winding up in bed
together - thus influencing your game the previous night... You could still
fuck the night before and work towards the same thing...

It's all swing n roundabouts to a certain extent - knowing what you;re
working with simply enables you to do this more efficiently...

oh and in my post with 1-1 i meant 1on1, tete a tete etc... (not 101 or
IOI) Like a compromise between being in a packed bar with limited
conversation oppportunity but other ways of having fun and moving inbetween
those places and being able to talk to each other properly.

In some ways the only way you may 'get' this is by getting out in the field
more and paying attention - find places you like that are good for different
things and that perhaps complement each other in different ways... If you
go out regularly it's something that I think most people pick up on fairly
quickly like that a friday night will often be dominated with people who
work in the city and are going out after work whereas saturday will have a
greater proportion of 'out of towners' who have made more of an effort to go
out there... You want more intellectual/stimulating convo - go hang out in a
bar near a few legal firms after work... or a place near some larger
media/creative firms etc... but be aware that this doesn't guarantee
anything - you may end up pu-ing the cleaner...

Perhaps one way of speeding up this 'logistical nightmare' is to breakdown
your PU into a few things that are important to you for a while, things like
time constraints - are you approaching with a fixed/false time constraint?
gear up your game to make an impression before leaving - not a flat lifeless
covo... if you feel the need to include at least one venue change in your
PU - think about it beforehand, where are you going to go and why... sarge
everywhere except the place you want to end up in etc...

Again, if you go out regularly you also notice that at different times there
are more or less people and what kind of people at different times etc...

Very Rough example:
5-6pm people from work, still in work groups often still talking work
6-7pm some work people leave, a few people arrive, usually friends, and
the group dynamic changes - usually followed by venue change
7-8pm more people who aren't from a nearby business place arrive,
different groups enter, places start filling up more
8-10pm more 'random' arrivals, places filling up, less movement between
10pm+ people going to final place whether bar, club or pre-club bar...

If you need sleep decide when and where you can break that constraint and
for what reasons... otherwise work with it and gear up your PU knoiwing it's
there in advance - it's very similar to 'being busy'...

I know this has only glossed over the surface of things but let me know if
it's of any use and feel free to ask more etc
