My name is Joe and I live in New York City. Actually I live in NJ sometimes and NYC the rest, but that I will explain later. I am starting this blog to chronicle my daygame journey, because let’s face it, daygame is hard as hell. I am not just talking hard like getting up early to go to the gym hard, I am talking like mentally crushing, soul-sucking, ego killing hard. Hard like years of therapy is essential after one harsh street blowout. You get up in the morning with all intentions of approaching, but end up walking around for four hours like every other anonymous chump out there who never talks to anyone. NYC is full of them. Walking down the street, passing 5,6’s, 7’s and the occasional 8 or 9, but not saying a word. Only listening to the negative thoughts that permeate your brain and talk you out of it of hard. Hard like everyone is going to judge you, make fun of you, ridicule you when they leave, and at that moment you think it would be easier to just go home and start over tomorrow. Well I have been doing that for the past year, and I am getting pissed off. I know it’s hard, that’s why I should do it. Like from the movie Network, I want open my window and yell to the world, “I am as mad as hell and I am not gonna take it anymore!”
So this blog starts my journey. I have daygamed before, probably over 1000 approaches, but I have gone cold. It is not that I am clueless about street approach, I am just scared and I feel like I am the only guy in NYC doing this right now. Everyone who was going it a few years back seems like they have dropped out, moved away, or gotten married. In the past year of living in this city, I have seen one street approach. We are talking Soho, Union Square, Madison Square park-one guy on a subway platform I saw approach a girl. That is unacceptable in a city of 8 million people.
Valentines Day is in one week. I do not have anything lined up yet, and I am getting pissed off. Girls are out there, waiting for someone to ask them out on that unforgiving red heart themed holiday that falls every year on the same day. I need to start approaching.
I have no idea why I started this blog, maybe to hold myself accountable for my own inaction, meet fellow gamers here in NYC, or maybe just because I am bored. Whatever the reason, this is where it starts.
