RE: My Travel Journal
Day 4:

Today I left my apartment a little late and didn't get to the old town until aroun 3pm to have breakfast. Service was very slow so I didn't finish eating until past 4pm. Today was a bit chilly out too nonetheless I wanted to do some daygame. I walked around the old town and there were many people until fucking Riga. However, my approach anxiety soon resurfaced and I ended up wandering around for 1-2 circles before I said fuck this, I'm going back to doing a warmup so I walked up to some dude and asked for the time. It took me a good 5 minutes before I was able to open the next person asking for the time. I saw some blonde women walking around slowly and she was holding something in her hand. I opened her and she didn't understand what I said so I had to repeat it, but then she pointed towards the clock tower with the time lol. I guess I can't use this pre-warmup opener anymore. Anyways, we start talking and it turns out she works at the Sioux restaurant, just several meters from where I opened her. Even though she was working, she was awfully friendly and even recommended I try a desert place near where she was working. She said don't come to my place to order deserts, you can get it cheaper at this other place. After about 5 minutes, I let her get back to work and soon opened up some average looking brunette asking her where I could find a gym. We start chatting and I find out she's from France and studying here in Architecture but used to study engineering. We talk about Japanese people and working out outside but she didn't really ask me any personal questions despite us talking for at least 10 minutes already. I think started to sprinkle in hints of a possible instadate but asking about what she was up to. She said she had class in 45 minutes and was going to the store to buy paper. I asked if she knew a good smoothie place hoping to use that to hook her in but she said she doesn't drink smoothie and the conversation soon ended after she asked for my name (first personal question) at around the 15 minute mark. I was freezing my ass off so I didn't bother to pursue any further nor was I particularly interested in her. Anyways at around that time it was 5pm and I needed to haul ass home to get ready for my photoshoot.

I show up at 6pm ready to shoot my photos but I didn't have time to watch a video on how to tie a tie so I asked the owner and her father but neither knew how to tie a tie so I spent like 15-20 minutes trying to figure out that shit watching youtube videos. We started off with a business photo. It felt fucking awkward and I wasn't happy with the photos she took. The poses and my forced smiles made it seem awkward and it showed on camera. After that was done, we moved on to my professional photos which was supposed to be used for tinder. This time, the photos were a bit better but still not anything professional like you see in magazines. I ended up spending 2 fucking hours there for the photoshoot. I ended up telling her to just get rid of the business photos and I'll just take two professional photos instead. Hopefully this will now help with my online dating profile.

I was fucking exhausted after that so I retired home for a bit to recharge my batteries for some nightgame. 2 hours later I left my apartment all suited up to hit up shakers and to go have a kebab at my favourite kebab stand. The kebab stand is near the Zara and hardrock cafe. They give you a giant wrap loaded with meat. They certainly don't skimp out on meat unlike some of the other places and the hot sauce taste awesome too. I would definitely recommend this place for late night fast food. While eating my kebab, I got approached by two polish chicks. One of them seemed like she was either drunk or high on something. She started speaking Japanese to me while her friend was making this embarrassed sorry to bother you look. The drunk chick was definitely fiesty and even started to swear and shit. They both invited me to come with them to some underground called Klub Alternatywy. The drunk chick kept on asking me why I was in Poland and I kept on evading her question accusing her of being nosy and that this isn't something you ask strangers which got both of them cracking up. She was very persistent so I told her I was visiting a friend, which got her asking me even more questions like "gf? are you in love with her, etc." She didn't believe me that I would travel all the way here to visit some friends even though that was the truth for the most part lol. Her friend was giving me major ioi's from her looks and smiles. I did a check on her body and she had a nice curvy figure with a nice rack and ass, her face was only about a 6 while her drunk friend had a prettier face but was more fatter.

While walking there, the drunk chick approached some dude handed out flyers for that club which got my spider sense tingling. I was starting to wonder if this was some sort of bullshit scam or something and these two chicks were trying to lure me inside. I told them to go inside first while I finished up my kebab. I saw several groups of polish college kids leave the venue which made me feel a bit better about it but still, you can't be 100% sure. I was prepared to bolt immediately if it was a scam place. I make my way inside and take off my coat revealing my blazer and dress pants. I immediately started to get looks from everyone in the vicinity. Everyone was dressed really sloppy like in a college class. I make my way to the bar to try and order a drink and then run into the friend that was giving me major ioi's. She talk a bit and she's like I'm going to go a round of shots and if I wanted to join them. I said sure and then the drunk friend came back and we started to talk. She was so fucked up that she started talking to the other people around the bar. She ordered some orange juice like shot that tasted pretty good and wasn't really strong. We had like 3 shots each and then they asked me to go dance with them. While making our way to the dance floor, the drunk friend started hitting on some old dude lol. They started to chat and she was like rubbing his bald head or something. Me and her friend go to the dance floor and start dancing but then she's like excuse me while I go grab her and then runs off trying to pry her friend away from the old guy who now had his phone out trying to get her number. The crowd on the dance floor was very small with 2-3 groups of people dancing in a circle with 1-2 dudes smoking inside trying to break inside their circles. The two chicks soon returned and we started to dance. Her friend kept on giving me seductive look and smile every couple of seconds as we danced which made me think this check was dtf and into me. Soon the drunk chick comes right up to me and is like front grinded me with my crotch rubbing up against her thigh or something. Then she backs away and starts dancing with her friend again only to return 1-2 minutes later and tell me "we are lesbians." I'm like ok whatever and they soon makeout leaving me dancing there feeling a bit awkward. They kind of do there thing while I try to look around on the dance floor for some eye contact but nothing. Soon they return again and I start dancing with the chick who gave me major ioi's. I pull off some salsa moves that I remembered and she's kind of leaning in closer to me and I'm thinking I should go for the kiss soon then, but then she goes up to her drunk friend who is now dancing with some guy and then switch partners so I'm not dancing with the drunk chick. We kind of front grind a little again and she's like I don't believe you about why you came to poland so I'm like I'll show you a pic of her later and she's like ok.

Then she just grabs her friend again and they have a long make out session leaving me and the other dude confused. He ends up walking away after saying something to them. Then they tell me they're going to the washroom and then take off leaving me dancing alone there. A few minutes later they return and her friend is again giving me that look but her drunk friend is dancing with me again and then is like "I want you to kiss my cheeks." so I plant one on her. Soon they are like we are leaving so I bid them farewell thinking alright I'm going to bolt in 5 minutes too then. I don't want to bolt right now otherwise it will seem like I'm following them. After waiting a few minutes I go to the main lobby and was about to exit when I run into the chick who was giving me major ioi's. She's like her friend went to the washroom so she's waiting. She talk a little bit and then she's like I'm going to go get her but she seems kind of not wanting to leave my company so I finally get the hint after she walks several steps away from me as I yell out "wait a minute, let's hangout again sometime." She immediately turns around and comes back up to me and is like "sure, let's exchange contact information." I whip out my phone and try to get her contact info and even ask for her last name so that I could look her up but she was hesitant to give it to me and instead put down cracow for her last name lol. The drunk friend soon returns while she's putting in her number and she doesn't look happy. She's trying to pry her away from me but her friend doesn't leave making sure to give me her contact info before she goes. I send her quick text but since we are underground, it wasn't going through so I was like just give me your facebook and I'll find you. She writes down her last name in Polish now as her friend is like "come on, let's go." and saying some other shit in polish to her. After she's done we say goodbye but my phone wouldn't say her polish name so I ended up with the original name and cracow as her last name lol. I then leave 1 minute later because of a message I got on facebook and then run into them again at the front doors. I figured, fuck it, just leave while your ahead so I wave goodbye and leave. I checked my phone outside and looks like the text I sent her went through and also she's now a contact on my whatsapp so everything is good.

What a strange fucking encounter. I think that chick was bisexual or something. Next I decided to head to Shakers. Btw don't ever come to this fucking club. I had put myself on the guesslist but was still charged 10 zl and was told that drinks would be 5zl at the bar. They also charged me 2zl for checking in my coat. When I got to the bar to order a beer I was charged 12 zl. I asked the bartender what the fuck is up I'm on the guestlist and she's like it makes no difference. The place was pretty packed and I was getting some looks from chicks because I was like the only guy suited up there. Unfortunately club game is my worse aspect of game so I didn't know how to open chicks. I was trying to figure out if I should stay by the bar or go to the dance floor and try dance floor game. I felt uncomfortable there so I picked a spot near the bar and beside the dance floor and I was sipping and holding my beer like a chump though with 1-2 other dudes doing the same while looking at the dance floor. After 1-2 minutes I said fuck this and opened the door to my right. We start talking but the music is way too fucking loud here even when you yell in their ears, you can hardly hear anything. Soon he makes his way to the dance floor but I never see him again. I continue drinking my beer, hoping that once I was done it I would have the courage to go to the dance floor and open some chicks. While observing the dance floor, I notice some short brunette in a white top stop 1-2 feet in front of me and some dude opens her by gesturing for her to go but she acts confused so he leans in and says something to her. She looks confused again and shakes her head and then opens me. She's like "I don't understand him, do you speak English?" I'm like yeah so I pat him on the shoulder and says she doesn't understand you. He doesn't speak any English lol and soon leaves her alone. She turns to me now and starts talking to me, asking about me showing strong ioi's. She's like why aren't you dancing and I'm like because I still have to finish this beer first. Then I'm like "let's dance." and grab her hand and we start dancing. She's leaning in awfully close to me and then grabs the beer out of my hand and places her on the counter as we continue to dance. She's placing her hands on my shoulders and dancing while going up and down on me. She's a cute looking short chick, maybe around 5'1-5'2 and I'm thinking holy shit, its my lucky day. We continue to dance and I grab her by the waist as we're dancing really close. She leans into my ear several times and asks me questions about me and even compliments my dancing which I know for a fact is shit. Then all of a sudden she gets up on the stage and we start dancing again. She's looking at me with those eyes and I'm thinking this chick wants to also makeout. We dance for 1-2 more minutes and then she picks up her phone and starts talking on it. After talking for 1 minute she puts it away and is like "do you want to go somewhere else?". I'm kind of confused at her question. I'm thinking does she mean another bar or something or my apartment. I'm like "ok sure." so she grabs my hand and starts leading me out of the club to the coat check area. She's like we will go somewhere else and I'm a little skeptical now so I ask her where. She's like a strip club. At that point I knew what was going on now. I ask her if she's an umbrella girl and she's like no, I'm a dancer meaning stripper. I tell her no thanks, I'm not interested in going to a strip club but she's like why? why not? I'm like no, and she's very persistent but I stand my ground. After a while, she gives up and is like ok, I have to get to work now, she rubs my cheeks and then we say goodbye. I was thinking I just dodged a bullet.

I figured at least she helped give me some social proof and pre-selection with the other girls. Later on in the night, I see another chick who looks similar to the girl I was dancing with but I wasn't sure. She was dancing with some polish dude but the guy seemed more into the dancing then the chick. I was thinking ok she's at it again. She really was trying to lure and scam me and now she's got her eyes on a new victim. I realized later in the night that that girl wasn't here because she was still there with her friend and that dude wasn't dancing with her anymore. I guess she was maybe telling me the truth about her having to go to work but who knows if she was really into me or if she really was just trying to scam me. I contemplated on whether or not I should have grabbed her digits before she left but it left a very sour taste in my mouth especially after all that bullshit I went through in Riga. I finish my beer and then move to the dance floor and start dancing, trying to locate any eye contact from the girls. All of the girls are in either pairs or large groups and they are all surrounded by mobs of dudes. I noticed that polish guys like to surround chicks and then try to dance and break into their circle. Sometimes they would say something into their ear while other times would just try to grind from behind them or grab them which was usually met with a rebuff and the chicks moving somewhere else. I was dancing there, with my ears slowly going deaf trying to figure out what the fuck am I supposed to do now? I was afraid of rejection because I saw several polish dudes get rejected back to back. Some of them even yelled in my ear like "like at this fucking bitches, rejecting me, blah blah blah." One of them even said "come on, let's go pick up some polish chicks." But I couldn't do, I didn't know how to, nor what to say.I stayed in that fucking place for 2-2.5 hours and did jack. At around 2:45 I said fuck this, I'm going home. I left with my ears buzzing and suffering temporary hearing loss and feeling like a failure. I really need to get this club game down, especially with the non-verbals and being more aggressive which is my biggest weakness in game.

Tomorrow I'm meeting up with a chick from couchsurfing who had messaged me out of the blue wanting to meet up with me. She's not really attractive but I said screw it, I need the experience. I might meet up with two other members from here as well for a beer and maybe some nightgame. We'll see.

Ahh...to be young again. @Destiny, you remind me of myself 15 years ago with quotes like below:

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 5:

Alright I really need to start hustling with daygame. I am now getting the sense of urgency that this is only really the only viable option for gaming chicks here. I signed up for sympatia yesterday but this dating site is fucking bullshit. Chicks don't take online dating seriously. I would match with a chick who liked me but when I message her I wouldn't get a respond, wtf? Also my fucking tinder didn't yield me any matches even after changing my profile pics to those professional ones. I suspected it was fucked up so I deleted my account and created a new one. Then I ran the tinder boost but got zero fucking matches, what the hell? After a while, I finally got 1 match but tinder was fucked up. I went to see her and all of a sudden she disappeared, but when I logged out and back in, she reappeared again so I immediately messaged her and got a reply back. Afterwards I sent her another message and later got a notification but then she disappeared from my matches. I wasted close to 2 hours on this shit which I could have used for daygaming and probably would have gotten further. Those fucking cocksuckers from tinder! I'm going to ask for a fucking refund during my last week of the month I paid for. I'm just about ready to throw in the towel with online dating in Poland.

Anyways, at around 5ish, I texted the cs chick who I was supposed to meetup to confirm our meeting indirectly by saying I might be a few minutes late. I later checked it and she actually messaged me first saying she was going to be 5 minutes late. This made me feel a lot better about not having a flake. I was also supposed to meet another forum member from here as well later in the evening. At around 6pm, I met with her. I dressed in a dress shirt and dress pants for our meeting. I'm not sure if it was overboard or not but who the fuck cares. I waited inside of Zara for her and then was met with a tall blonde wearing a blue peacoat. She looked a bit better then her photos which attenuated her chin and made it look really big. She was awfully friendly and gave me a hug when we met instead of some bullshit handshake.

Anyways she says she's going to take me to some bar which got my spider sense tingling. I asked her where and she mentioned somewhere which sounded similar to a bar I've been to before so I just let her lead the way. We ended up at a bar that one guy that I met last year in Krakow took me to. We ordered our beer and she offered to pay for my drink but I said nah I'll pay for both of ours and that she could get the next round. We grabbed a seat by the windows and I made sure to not sit across from her so that our legs could touch. For the first 30 minutes or so I completely forgot about even running game on her because I was kind of nervous and didn't know how to relax. Luckily she was a chatterbox and asked me a lot of questions which made it easier. Once the alcohol started to set in, I was able to relax more and start building some rapport with her as well as using kino, touching her several times including feeling up her biceps, writing out Chinese symbols on her forearm, touching her shoulder, rubbing the back of my hand on her forearm, and having our legs touch a few times. Also I would occasionally touch her forearm with the back of my fingers and she did the same as well. I got her cracking up non-stop several times which I found weird because what I was saying wasn't even funny. Anyway's I started to pay more attention to how she looked. Her face wasn't that attractive maybe a 5.5-6 at best, but her body though... She was wearing a white blouse and the top two buttons were unbuttoned revealing some slight cleavage and she was wearing a skirt with stockings. She definitely knew how to dress sexy yet classy. She suggested a few times that I should come join her for some 12km running event this friday because it's a holiday and everywhere will be closed so I figured why not since it will be empty on Friday but then when she checked it said registration was over. We talked about going for some Vietnamese food after she's done the race though. Despite her face not being that attractive I think I would definitely bang this chick if given the opportunity.
I must have spent like 3.5 hours talking to her or something which didn't seem that long while I was there though. Usually around the 1hr mark is when I run out of gas but this didn't happen with her.

Anyways after that I walked her to the bus station and gave her a hug and left. I think I fucked up by not setting exact plans for friday while we were talking about it. Also because this wasn't technically a date I wasn't sure how to act on the meetup. I wasn't sure if I should have escalated more or just been more platonic just trying to build as much comfort as possible saving the seduction for a future date. Lastly, I'm still having a lot of trouble generating that sexual vibe. It seems to only come out once in a blue moon and I don't know how to force it out on a consistent basis.

Anyways after meeting up with her, I headed home to change and take a quick shower and meet up with a fellow member here. We met up at Bania Luka and then went to Frantic. I wanted to hit the club right away but he insisted that we grab a drink first and just talk so I told him ok let me just grab a stamp then so I don't need to pay for cover before the deadline. He tells me he's going to wait outside while I lined up which I found a little strange. I was feeling like a social mood so I immediately opened 4 polish chicks right behind me and asked them if the club was good. I wasn't getting much investment from them but whatever. I just wanted to open them first and warm them up for later in the night. After grabbing my stamp I eject from the set and line. We go to a bar nearby and I buy us both a beer and start talking. I ask him how long he's been gaming for and he tells me 4 years so I'm thinking wow great, maybe I can learn something from him, but then he tells me he just mainly focuses on social circle game which puts a damper on my plans. We then hit the club after finishing our beers and I'm in a social mood now but he doesn't seem very talkative, telling me he's a little tired from the flight which is understandable. I knew that in order to have somewhat of chance at club game I needed to get into a really social mood and be high energy so I opened two polish dudes behind me. We start talking and then later one of them asks me why I'm here in Poland. I knew there was no point in bullshitting him since he asked me if the women were pretty here so I just said "I came her for the women, why else?" and they both start laughing and give me a high five. While at the coat check, my wing tells me he wants to leave soon. Its like 12am at this point and I'm like alright why don't we stay until 1am and then we'll leave. We go inside of the club and immediately I see 2-3 chicks checking me out since I'm all decked out in a suit with pocket square. I kind of want to stand there but my wing says he wanted to walk around and check out the club so I didn't get a chance to open those girls. We make our way to another bar in the back which I was hoping had some targets away from the dance floor so I could open them but it was empty. I ask the bartender about getting a beer but he's like I only have bottled beer here and to go to the other bar. My wing then orders himself a drink. We make our way back to the dance floor and other bar and I get 1-2 girls looking at me as I go up to the bartender and order my drink. I immediately open a chick to my right who's a little heavy after getting my beer. She can't hear me because the music is really loud so I again yell in her ear but she doesn't understand me and is just about to give up when I try one more time and she lets out a laugh but doesn't invest in the conversation. I was hoping my wing would jump in and keep her friend occupied but that didn't happen. I soon eject the set. I turn and look at my wing and he looks tired and bored and uncomfortable. I tell him to lighten up and to pretend to have fun, you can't be all bored and shit in a club like this. I immediately see 1 girl looking at me but then my wing tells me let's walk around the club so I don't bother to open her. We kind of walk around the dance floor but then I'm like this isn't really productive. My social mood now is slowly being zapped away and I'm starting to really feel the approach anxiety.

To help myself maintain my social mood, I see an asian guy leaned up against the wall texting on his phone so I approach him and ask where he's from. We immediately bond and then his black friend shows up and he introduces me to him. He then offers to buy me a shot and to drink with them so we head back to the bar area. He then asks me why I'm here and I tell him the same thing so he gives me a high five and then says "I'm going to get you laid tonight." He starts approaching girls but gets blown out and the girls walk away. Meantime my wing is just kind of standing in the corner looking uncomfortable and then soon comes up to me and says he's leaving, ditching me to fend for myself there after only being there for like maybe 20-30 minutes. But no big deal, I already established a homebase with this asian fella and his black friend but my approach anxiety is now no longer manageable. I figure if I just dance and try to have some fun that it would go away so I start dancing in the dance floor. My new asian friend tries to approach some chicks using a very strange and creepy hand gesture and gets blown out meanwhile I'm chickening out of approaching any more girls. I completely forgot which one of the chicks were checking me out earlier too nor do I remember which girls I spoke to earlier. I should have just went to the club alone earlier and stayed with that earlier set and used them as home base.
Later on while dancing, I run into one of the polish dudes I spoke to earlier. He tells me his friend is at mcdonalds eating lol and that he will come back later. He then asks me how I think about the polish girls and I give him a thumbs up. He then points to two girls beside us and says one of them is his cousin. He then tries to dance in front of them but they give him a dirty look. I think he was lying about her being his cousin to passively cockblock me. I continue to dance and run into the asian guy a few times. Its now around 1-1:30am and I'm considering quitting and going home because I no longer get any eye contact from any of the girls. The asian guy then tells me to come upstairs with him and then says he's taking off and asks me if I want to leave. I contemplate it for a bit and then say ya so we go outside. He's trying to reach his black friend but his friend doesn't answer his phone so we talk a bit more. He tells me he's just here on vacation with his friend and that he's flying to Coperhagen on Friday and says let's hangout tomorrow so we exchange contact info. Then he runs back into the club to pee and look for his friend so I'm waiting outside alone.

Soon I get approached by some average looking chick asking me if I speak English. I tell her yes but am skeptical about her intentions. I ask her why and then ask her if she's one of the girls with red umbrella's. She gets defensive and gives me attitude saying "do you see an umbrella on me?" so I tell her maybe she's a magician or something and it's hidden away. She's like I just wanted to ask you where is a good place to have a drink because I am a tourist or some shit. Her friend is lingering in the background and I immediately know what's up. It's a fucking scam like the one's in riga where the chicks try to bait you to come to some shady bar where you get overcharged for drinks. I call her out on it explaining her scam to her while partner in crime is right in front of me as well. At the last point where I say they will overcharge me, her friend says they will kill me in a joking way but I don't really laugh about it. Her friend then says so do you want to come drink with us or not and I'm like no so they leave me alone and just stand several feet away from me looking for the next intended victim.

The asian guy soon returns and I tell him what happened. He tells me he's taking off so we bid farewell and I go to grab some food and then go home.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 6:

Today I'm feeling pretty shitty. It was that girl from Riga's birthday who I went to original go see. I probably shouldn't have done it and even my gut was kind of telling me to not do it but I sent her a happy birthday message on facebook nonetheless. She gave me a less than enthusiastic response compared to the past. This put me in a not so pleasant mood. I'm really starting to feel the loneliness creep in. I feel really alone when I'm out eating at restaurants and I see everyone there with their friends. It's even worse when I see couples eating together. It makes me feel really jealous and envious of them and how they have companionship. Anyways I finish eating and head to the old town. I was supposed to meet with another forum member but he was busy with something else so we agreed to meet later during the day. While waiting in line at the restaurant to order my food, I open a chick right in front of me holding the menu. 'What's good to get here?" I ask her. We talk for a little bit but she doesn't really invest into the conversation so I don't bother anymore after 1 minute.

I roll solo into the old town after eating and try to shake off the approach anxiety which is quickly rising by the second. I'm contemplating whether or not to just warm up or just jump straight into it. I let several targets pass by and feel disappointed but then spot a girl taking pics of a polish flag so I open her.

me: excuse me, do you know a good tea shop around her?
her: umm...tea shop?

blah blah blah. She wasn't very attractive, maybe a 5.5 or so.
We talk for about 10 minutes and I found out she's from a small town or something studying engineering here. I tried to make it more fun by telling her "wait, don't tell me, I know what you study." I just shot three things out there and my second guess engineer was correct which got her laughing and smiling. I crack some jokes and get her laughing a lot. She asks me some personal questions and when I shook her hand it was a moderate grip. She tells me she has to go near the 10 minute mark so I'm like ok so how do I get in contact with you again? She gives me her facebook and I try to schedule a date on the spot but she's like I have to go and we can talk about it on facebook. I then giver her a handshake, she takes it but then gives me a big hug with a huge grin on her face lol. She looked like she had a huge shine afterwards from our conversation as she bid me farewell. I love interactions like this where I can leave a girl feeling a lot better about herself after talking with me as oppose of me making her feel worse or creeped out.

Anyways I circle around the old town again while the AA is rising fast and open another chick walking at a somewhat fast pace. I use the same opener. This one isn't quite as friendlier but still is ok. She starts asking me about where I am from, but I suppose I made her guess too much and she stopped guessing. I cracked a few jokes and made her laugh as well but then after telling me the tea shop she kind of just walked away while facing me. I might have been able to prolong the conversation but she looked like she was in a hurry.

A few minutes later, I opened another chick but this one wasn't that good. She was wearing earphones which she took off but she gave me like maybe 10-15 seconds before walking away. This interaction left me feeling pretty bad and my approach anxiety was now nearly unmanageble. I walked around for several minutes but didn't open a single set until seeing a tall cute brunette who I open.

She wasn't too engaged in the conversation neither despite me making her laugh several times. She told me she was here from Warsaw for the weekend to watch justin bieber. I probably shouldn't have made fun of him neither lol. I found out she's studying journalism and broke her wrist while skiing. She didn't ask me any questions about me and I felt I was carrying the full weight of the conversation for nearly 10 minutes. Near the end, there was awkward silences so I just let her go back to her hotel.

I decided to check out Pauza to maybe grab a drink to cool off and try again but the place was empty so I said screw it I'm just going to go to the mall and grab a hotdog and some food. After returning from the mall, my approach anxiety was still unbearable but I managed to get 1 more approach in when I spotted a chick with her luggage walking behind me.
I hesitate for a bit and then open her with the same opener. She's like sorry I'm not from here and then takes off. I might have been able to prolong the conversation but my mood was feeling pretty shitty now. I wanted to do 1 more final approach but seeing all of the couples outside together hand in hand and kissing each other was greatly effecting my mood and energy levels. I end up calling it quits and going home in shame.

I've been here for almost 1 week now but I don't really have much to show for neither and I'm starting to panic because of time. This isn't the Krakow I remember from last year. Its like its transformed into the opposite of what it was. I'm just about ready to quit and throw in the towel. Sometimes I think its fucking bullshit that some people get girls handed to them on a silver platter while I'm out hustling and bustling and have nothing to show for it. I don't understand why it has to be like this. Why must I have to spend all this time and energy and get nowhere with girls.

update: I texted that chick that I hung out with yesterday from cs but she didn't reply back even though it shows she went online during that period. I guess I can cross her off my list. FUCK!

RE: My Travel Journal
Hey dude.

Nice journal. I really can't read it all now. But I have something to say regarding your last post and few other questions.

First of all how many trips abroad did you make up to this day?

I can see you are getting in a pretty sad mood, which I totally understand. I felt the same few years ago when I was making my first trips. Emotional roller coaster, loneliness even sadness. I remember my first week in Odessa when I was eating and googled a word loneliness and found a bunch of smart aphorisms about it. So its real.
It all goes away.

What I want to tell you is don't be discouraged. Riga in the winter is probably the worst place to travel.

I don't know if you have read my sheet on Riga but here is what I would do if I were you and was lonely and sad in Riga.

Once again I have to say I have not read your complete log, so if you are already doing some of this things disregard them.

Get up early have a light breakfast and go to gym.
You can buy subscriptions for certain amount of visits in any big gym network Atletika, CityFitness etc. Just google it. Buy as many visits as days of your trip you have left.
This will raise your energy level and increase your testosteron. Also approach the girls you see there too. Take group lessons too and be social.

Go on noFap no porn if you are not already doing it. Will boost you the same way.

Online game before 5 PM. Don't go out there too early. You run out of energy and by the time there are targets you are drained. Do a bit of online game Tinder, Badoo is still alive although quiet, Instagram. Then listen to some active music put yourself in a positive mood and head out with a good vibe. Its winter so hit the malls. Opening girls on streets is not so efficient. They are feeling cold and are in the hurry. Better catch them where they enjoy themselves.

Go to Alfa, Riga Plaza, Galareja Riga, Galereja centrs or Spice. Walk there.

Consider challenging your game. Stop sticking to safe and easy indirect openers. Go direct once in a while. Explore.

Consider taking a class. Yoga class, salsa class (there are some everyday) get in some social setting where you can engage people without having to cold approach every day.

Disregard classical nightgame and big loud clubs it is pretty useless if you are alone and can not overcome your discomfort. For now at least before you get your cool back. Try gutter game. Walk around the city and around busy nightlife areas and approach.
Try walking in bars, approaching and leaving if you don't find anything. No use to drink a beer just because you entered even if the place is empty.

I hope this will help. Good luck

I felt uncomfortable there so I picked a spot near the bar and beside the dance floor and I was sipping and holding my beer like a chump though with 1-2 other dudes doing the same while looking at the dance floor. After 1-2 minutes I said fuck this and opened the door to my right. We start talking but the music is way too fucking loud here even when you yell in their ears, you can hardly hear anything. Soon he makes his way to the dance floor but I never see him again. I continue drinking my beer, hoping that once I was done it I would have the courage to go to the dance floor and open some chicks. "

So how's your club game now?

I don't do much club game anymore. It's still a struggle domestically (in USA) but I do well overseas. When I travel I travel with a good budget and hit up high-end places. I workout and then take naps during the day and in the evening load up on energy drinks and pre-game with alcohol so I can force myself to stay up late and approach a lot. I always start with evening game, then do night-game, and follow-up with gutter game as people are leaving clubs/bars (unless I've already gotten solid leads).

to be honest I've struggled with AA my whole life and am naturally an introvert. I succeed doing night game but evening game (which is the best type of game IMHO) brings even greater rewards though your logistics have to be tight and the window to do this type of game is limited. Social game such as dancing/language groups/internations, etc. also works well.
I still struggle doing direct approaches by myself during the day on a street, even if a girl was staring me down. I am not the best looking guy though and just average height and older so day-game to me is not the preferred method. With a wing-man it becomes easier though.

So, I think you are doing just fine for now and it is just a matter of continuing your approaches. I am guessing from your posts that you are no more than 22 or so years of age. If so you are too young to be depressed and feel sad! If you get to my age (37) and still have the same problems then perhaps we will need to run emergency intervention Wink

I'm 31 now even though I look like I'm in my early 20's but I've reached a point in my life where I really need to get this fixed so that I can focus on other things.

Thanks for the tips. This is my 3rd trip traveling alone and abroad and also my longest. Two years ago, I never even stepped foot outside of the country except when I was a little kid. That was also when I started to learn game.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 7 continued:

Last night after doing daygame, I was supposed to meetup with 1 forum member and also the two Americans that I met the previous night. I also received a message on whatsapp from the forum member I met the previous night but he wanted to go to a different club so I said no thanks.

When I got to the club outside, there was already a huge lineup. I opened a dude in front of me asking him if the club is good or not. He soon takes off and two cute polish girls stand behind me. I open them as well using the same opener and the transition to suggesting they don't look polish. We talk a little bit but then we all get distracted by a fight outside and then I'm out. I get inside and wait idling by the coat check and see some chick dance to the music and start singing so I open her and tell her she has great singing skills. She just smiles so I return my attention back to the coat check area.
By the time I was inside the club (Lokal), the two Americans were already waiting for me sitting down by a table opposite the bar. I soon join them after ordering a beer. I open some chick waiting in line by the bar by asking her if she's lining up. I get very little investment so I don't try to persist. After grabbing my beer I join the two Americans. We chat a bit and I tell them, we can't just sit, let's go stand by the bar so they follow my lead. We stand by the bar and the two american's order a drink and offers me one but I was already drinking a beer so declined. We kind of just stand there lingering around not sure how to talk to the girls, but then some tall ass brown guy comes up and shakes both of their hands and pours some vodka into their mouths. The americans introduce me to him and he soon takes off. I thought he worked for the club or something. A little while later, another shorter brown guy comes up to the two americans and introduces himself. He seems like a real natural and quickly hooks a chick. We walk to the dance floor soon after but I said screw it, its too hard to open chicks here so we walk around the place and end up at another bar there. The two americans want to order another drink and I spot a chick with her friends who looks kind of bored and tired leaning against the wall so I open her. We talk a little bit and I find out she's Ukrainian and studying here, but then she tugs at her friend and starts talking to her so I eject from the set. We make another lap and I see an Asian dude talking to 4 chicks along with his friend standing idle by another bar so I suggest we go befriend him to get into their circle. We all start talking to the Asian guy and I find out he's Vietnamese but from Switzerland. He seemed kind of apathetic about us. Then all of a sudden, I see two guys walk by and instantly recognized one of them. It was the forum member who I met yesterday along with the guy who I was supposed to meet today. We talk for a little bit but they soon do their own thing while me, and the Americans stay by the bar. Soon, the black American guy opens one of the girls from the Asian guy's group and starts talking to her while me and the Asian guy kind of just chat. I'm like we have to jump in there somehow. Then the black guy introduces me and his friend to one of the girls but they soon leave and the Asian guy has now disappeared as well. That natural brown guy is also by the bar now and has hooked some Canadian chick and she seems really into him.

Soon, I see two blondes waiting by the bar to order but are being ignored so I open one of them by suggesting the service is crap. We talk a little bit and I find out they are scottish. They soon leave after getting their drinks but then the Asian American guy starts talking to one of them for a while.

Then that big tall brown from early stops by again and is like giving me a handshake along with the black guy. He introduces me and the black guy to some women who apparently is the manager there. He then hugs some girl who is a pub crawl organizer or something and introduces us. He then tells us he's going to get us some free drinks. He talks to the bartender and gets us some jagermeister or something. I soon run into that forum member who I was supposed to meet and either me or the brown guy gives him a drink as well. Then the brown guy is like I'm gonna hook you guys up with a bottle or something but suggest we give him 10 zl each for tipping the bartenders so I'm like no problem. He then spots some blonde chick and says he wants her and soon opens the entire mixed set and gets her laughing within seconds but then she disappears with her group of friends.

We follow the tall brown guy into another bar and he says something to the bartender and then returns and tells us to give him an extra 20 zl so we're like ok. The bartender then hands him a bottle of vodka, with red bull, sprite, and 6 cups. We follow him and then he opens a table with two chicks and then I think asks them if they want to drink with us. They appear hesitant at first but then agree. He tells me and the black guy he has to take off now and leaves us with the two chicks. It felt a little weird and strange but nonetheless we start talking. I start to get some banter and rapport going with the two girls while the black guy is a more reserved and shy. All of a sudden some polish dude comes into my table and starts talking to them and soon a few of their female friends come in and sit by the table beside us as well. They all start talking amongst themselves in polish and me and my wing feel weird and awkward. I was like "fuck" so I again re-engaged the chick beside me and soon I start talking to the polish dude as well and handshake their friends. The polish dude points to the girl sitting beside the black guy and is like "she has a on/off bf." but she tries to deny it. The Asian guy then finds us but is lingering on the side standing there. I tell him to go talk to her friends but he doesn't listen. I notice the chick beside me has a pic of her with some dude on her phone who I assume was her bf. Their group of friends soon leave again, leaving just the four of us. I continue to plow and also kind of tap his leg to signal to him to jump into the conversation as well. The Asian guy soon disappears. We start getting a bit more banter going now, and investment from them. I tease the both of them calling one of them a polish dancer and the other a village girl which gets them cracking up. I noticed the black guy now has asked for the girl beside him for her facebook so I figured this was the perfect time to also do it. My internet wasn't working downstairs so I told her to add me. I ask her about the guy in her profile pic and she confirms its her bf. Soon they try to teach us some polish words but didn't tell us what it meant, which I presume was telling us to say something stupid about us because they got a crack out of it. I kind of got the sense that this was a waste of time but noticed 1-2 girls kind of looking at me now so I stayed in there. We talk some more and then her friends return again and they chat for a little bit. The two girls then say they will be back and disappear. We never see them again. I just kind of talk to the polish dude for a little bit and then run to the washroom. When I came out, I saw some chick blatantly stare at me so I should have approached her but chickened out. I return to the table but don't see the black guy anymore nor any of the chicks except the polish dude so I go back to the washroom to see if they are there. The asian guy tells me they are taking off so I also decide to leave as well.

Once outside the Asian guy says he wants to get fucked up and go to a bar so I decide to check out jazz rock cafe. While going there, we get approached by an umbrella chick who's very persistent on the Asian guy, almost getting him to go with her but I intervene. I decide to troll her a bit and tell her, she's too late, I already promised another person that I would go to another strip club. This gets her to start qualifying herself to us, trying to tell us her club is better. I continue to troll her telling her that she needs to do some magic trips or something or get a bigger umbrella. This shit cracks the black guy up and her too. All of a sudden a group of polish people walk up to us and are like hey, one of the girls has her phone pointed at the girl with the umbrella. She grabs the phone and they start arguing. I think they were doing a story on them or something. They soon leave. Then I noticed another attractive blonde talking to the Asian guy by the side trying to get him to come inside and he's almost ready before I jump in and cockblock her.

I troll her as well asking where's her red umbrella? Is she on probation or something and soon find out you don't get one until six months into the job which gets all of us cracking up including her. I then tease the shit outta her making her face glow and cracking up the Asian guy too. Then the girl with the red umbrella comes up to us and try to double team us but I quickly reverse it and troll the both of them. I get her boss to give her her red umbrella and the blonde chick starts playing with it and looks really happy to have a red umbrella. I start asking the attractive blonde what she studies for school and find out she's doing tourism and shit so I'm like this will look great on your resume then. Handing out flyers and promoting strip clubs which gets her laughing. I'm like this is like an internship for you. We soon ditch the two girls and then get approached by another strip club promoter chick who doesn't have an umbrella. I tell her who come she doesn't have an umbrella and that the other chick offered me a red umbrella to go inside to the club but this girl doesn't give me anything. I start cracking her up as well but then leave. We walk to another bar and can see some dude about to approach us so I yell out "strip club right?" The two Americans start laughing their asses off and this stops the dude in his tracks and he turns around.

We hit up Bania Luka and we order beers. While talking, we see that Vietnamese guy from earlier come in with a cute chick and some polish dude. I'm thinking this guy has game he just pulled. He see's us but tries to ignore us until the black guy starts talking to him. He appears annoyed and soon bails. The black guy is like he told us we can have the chick. We start talking to the chick but I'm pretty tipsy at this point now and appear very cocky. I talk to the polish dude as well who's just sitting idle beside her clinging to her in a way. I start saying stupid shit to her and asking her what types of guys she likes. She's like I don't like polish guys only asian guys. Then I point to the Americans and she's like no, they are too dark and that she likes lighter skin so I put my hand against her hand and she's like so and so with her hand. I have pale skin for an Asian. I then say some more stupid shit and I guess she gets annoyed and leaves with the polish dude. She didn't even say goodbye to us.

The two americans now want to get fucked up and try to force me to drink shots with them. I'm like nah man, I'm done but they keep on insisting so I drink a shot with them. Then they order another fucking shot and I down that as well. They order one final one for all of us and this one really fucked me up. I could barely keep my eyes open after this. While piss drunk, the two americans ask me about my dating situation and stuff. I open up about my situation and they are like "dude, your tall, chicks love tall girls, plus you dress really wear, your wearing a suit tonight, and you can talk to girls, I've seen you do it, and I saw how you talked with those girls. You will get a girl, she'll come along, you just have to keep on going." They were kind of giving me a prep talk of some sort. The black guy is like come down to San Francisco and I'll hook you up with some chicks man. Listening to them tell me this, gave me mixed feelings. On the one hand, they saw within me what I can't see for myself. They see this charming, tall, well dressed guy who should be killing it with the ladies but quite the opposite was true. They believed I possessed all these traits and qualities but somehow I feel like there's something broken inside of me. A piece of the puzzle missing if you will. I can't seem to climb over this wall that preventing me from succeeding with girls. At this point, I could barely sit straight so the two dudes walk me home. I basically just crashed into my bed once I got home.

RE: My Travel Journal
Continued...

Today I had to wake up early to meet a chick who's a platonic friend. She's engaged so I won't be making any moves on her but she has been helping me out with everything here in Krakow and will introduce me to her friends as well. We finally meet in person ( I have skyped with her several times before) and then she takes me to some restaurant and we have lunch and then she shows me around the city, like actually takes her time unlike that other chick in Riga. It was a huge contrast and I could kind of feel that she actually genuinely wanted to show me around. I wasn't trying to game or anything so I didn't really give a shit, plus I was super tired too so I guess our meeting turned out well. I didn't feel like I was trying hard or anything and she was already telling me about going drinking with me and taking me to wawel castle next week. After that was done, I headed home to take a nap.

I went back out around 4:30 to meet with the Americans but when I got there they told me they got pissed drunk and already ate and just wanted to go back to their hotel and leave so we bid farewell. They invited me to come visit them in San Francisco. It was at this point that I really felt the loneliness creep in. I had bonded with these two guys like bros for the past two days and we had one hell of a night last night so felt lonely when they left. I just stood out there in the rain while the crowd of people walked past me, wondering what the hell was I going to do now. I decided I needed some food so I went to back to the same restaurant I frequent everyday. When I showed up I noticed a huge ass line so I opened a chick at the end, she was like this is only for ordering drinks and pointed to another line 2-3 feet away. I immediately opened the dude in front of me and we started talking. He was spanish and I was curious to see what type of bullshit he was going to give me for coming to Krakow so I asked him. He appeared uneasy when I asked him the question so I just mentioned the girls and he started to laugh. Anyways we build up good rapport and stuff and then I noticed a polish chick get in line behind me. We immediately make eye contact but I shift my attention back to the dude. She was about a 6 but was frigging tall, like the same height as me. Now I figured let's try something out.

I start mentioning poland and praising it, making sure that she could hear. I was like "polish people are so nice and warm and friendly." blah blah blah and I could tell she was eavesdropping in on our conversation. I was very expressive in how I was speaking too, injecting some passion and energy into it. She then made some sound which caught my attention and made me immediately look back at her but then she didn't say anything so I returned back to the guy and continued my talk with him about how when you visit a foreign country you should learn about the culture and how to speak the local language. I even dropped a few hints that I might have studied some polish too to raise my value. Anyways, I let him go talk to his buddies and then I noticed she was holding a menu so I opened her. "is that an english menu?" and just like that we were talking and I was making her laugh and praising her English. When I mentioned that in Polish you have so and so sounds she's like ya, I overheard you talking there. Then I asked her why she was studying Spanish and then told her that I heard that people do that because they either had an ex from that country or like the men there. She then volunteers and tells me she's single so I then pointed at the spaniards right in front of us who were poorly dressed and not very hygienic or charismatic neither. She quickly gave me this look of disapproval. I try to do some cold reads on her and even suggest role-playing because she studied tourism so I told her to pretend she was a tourist agent trying to get me to come to poland which got her laughing and playing along for a few seconds. I could tell she was hooked and into me. She later reached for the counter and grabbed two candies and handled me one. At one point she complained that it was taking too long to order because the spanish dudes in front of us were taking a long ass time to decide what to eat, so I leaned into her ear and whispered something about the spanish guys. We continued to talk until I had to order my food and then I had to run to the other side of the restaurant to grab my jacket because I found a table right beside her and her friend. Unfortunately my food fucking too forever and I didn't want to approach her table while she was eating and ask if I could join them. I think it would have been too intrusive.

Anyways, I picked a seat so that we were facing each other on different tables so that I could create that sexual tension when we made eye contact. I noticed she started to act a little funny when I returned with my coat and sat facing her. At one point, we made eye contact and I flashed her a smile and she immediately ducked her head under and started to giggle and laugh. I knew I was in but how to get the number?

I replayed various scenes in my head about how I was going to go about it and pictured myself like the Spanish guy from the movie Vicki, Christina, Barcelona where he approaches their table, leans into the girl and picks them up. I was planning on doing that when I finished eating and was leaving. I was going to go up to her, place both of my hands on the table, lean in and give her this intense look and say "it was nice meeting you so and so, how do I get in touch with you again?" That would have been the perfect pickup in my mind at the time. Mysterious stranger from far away, who meets her in line at a restaurant, he is very charming and quickly sweeps her off her feet and grabs her number yet she doesn't know a single thing about him. That was going to be my plan. Unfortunately I received my food very late and they ended up leaving first. Prior to her leaving I was looking at her, trying to fish for eye contact so that I could gesture for her to come over and grab her number but she didn't look over and just left. As soon as she left, I quickly wolfed down the rest of my food, grabbed my coat and went after her but I couldn't find her. Another blown opportunity.

I decided to retreat back home and catch up on a little sleep but ended up writing this post instead lol. Around 11pm I headed out to a kpop party at Rin nightclub expecting to leverage my Asian looks but upon entering the club realized it was all full of high school kids. I also didn't even get that much attention compared to clubs where girls look check me out. I guess there aren't into a well dressed Asian guy in a blazer but prefer the more fobbyish look. While at the club, I spotted several fobby Asian fellows and opened pretty much almost all of them and even talked with 1 Asian girl who appeared into me but I wasn't interested in her. She asked me why was I there at that club and I just told her "I came here to meet Polish girls." because I didn't give a shit about her. I also talked with a bouncer or something but he wasn't really engaged. I met a short Vietanamese guy who spoke polish and we decided to hit another club with his friend. He wanted to go to Shakers but I wanted to go to Lokal but I decided to just go with him since it was right beside Rin.

I opened two chicks in front of us but couldn't hook them. It is just me or does it seem way harder to hook chicks during nightgame? We inside of the club and I start getting looks from girls but I'm too afraid to approach not knowing what to say to them. I station myself at the bar hoping to leverage more of my verbal game but the two Vietnamese dudes want to go to the dance floor so I accompany them a little. While there, me and some chick who walks past me make extended eye contact for 3-4 seconds and even smiles at me but I pussied out of talking to her and felt miserable about it. We continue dancing but I'm like fuck this and head back to the ball with one of them Asian dudes. I see a table of three chicks so I tell him to go over there and open them in Polish since he speaks polish. I'm like they will be completely caught off guard by your ability to speak near fluent polish but he kept on making excuses and chickened out as well. We decided to head back to the dance floor but I wasn't going to get any action there. I just pretty much wasted the night dancing on the overcrowded dance floor while trying to watch dudes pic up chicks. I saw one polish dude come dancing between two girls. He followed the girls moves and lowered himself really low and soon they were grinding on the dance floor. I didn't see him making out with her or anything though but I soon left after another hour. I pretty much just crashed to bed when I got home from pure exhaustion from going out every night.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 8:

I was extremely exhausted today still recovering from the antics from Thursday night. I woke up and made my way over to Gospoda Koko to have lunch. There was a big line as well and I immediately opened a middle aged man in front of me who seemed to be receptive and talkative to me. We talked a little bit about Katowice where he's from. He's like don't go there or you will get bored lol. Soon I see a girl line up behind me that I open as well asking her about the menu but she gives me one word replies and isn't invested in the conversation so I don't bother with her after trying 2-3 times to re-engage. I later saw her bf join her in the line and they started to kiss. After finishing eating I headed outside with the intention to do a little daygame even though I was still quite tired. Unfortunately it was fucking cold today and snowing a lot. After walking around in the market square and freezing my ass off looking for targets I decided to take a short break first by going to Galleria Krakowska to get a gym membership. I had no intention of gaming inside of the mall, but then couldn't find the gym so I opened some chick to my left. It just so happens she was kind of cute, a brunette. We start talking and then a switch flicks on and I start to game her. We talk for a quite a while standing there inside of the mall. It must have been for at least 15-20 minutes. I find out she's done medical school and is waiting to pass some medical exam, used to do dancing like tango, can't do a single push up, and other random shit which I forget about it. I touched her several times and she asked me several personal questions as well. I try to find out her logistics and it seems she's shopping for a birthday gift for a friend and will meet some friends later so I try to go for a instadate but she refuses so then I try to grab her contacts which she agrees, but then I remembered that I should also set up the date right now so I try to push for it, but she seems kind of hesitant saying we can discuss it on facebook, but I told her let's just do it now. She said she found it strange because she doesn't normally do this, but upon inquiring further after grabbing her number and asking why she's trying to hide her face on her facebook photos, she says she used to get a lot of messages from muslim dudes harassing her on facebook and then says she doesn't know me yet so then I tell her that's why we're going out for coffee. I tell her if she feels uncomfortable at any point she is free to go and if she wants she can even bring a gun or knife when she meets me which gets her to laugh. This gets her to pause for a second and I can see it in her eyes that she is really considering it now. After contemplating for 30 seconds she is like ok, how about wednesday at 11am? I joke that its really early for me and that I will be a zombie when I meet her but say alright. I asked her to add me on facebook but she had one of those old nokia phones so I had to just add her. She still hasn't accepted my friend request yet so who knows. Hopefully everything works out with her.

I contemplated approaching other girls after my interaction with her but I was out of energy and also worried she might see me so I said screw it.
After getting my gym membership I just headed home. I was too exhausted to go out clubbing and partying again tonight. I've done that for the past 4 already. Time to recharge my batteries.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 9:

I didn't get up until like 12pm lol. Needed to recharge my batteries. Anyways, I made my way to the old town to have lunch around 2:30pm and opened an attractive chick right behind me. I don't remember whether or not I spoke to the person in front but I chatted for a bit with the cute blonde behind me but her English wasn't very good. I actually had to sleep very slow for her to understand some of it. She was kind of into the interaction later on as I plowed but then I found out that she's only 15 which immediately ruined the interaction for me. What a waste, I thought she was 18 or something. I returned back to my table, waiting for my food arrive when some tall polish girl approached me and asked if she could sit there on my table with my friend. I of course, accepted her request and as soon as she sat down opened her asking her where I could find bubble tea in Krakow. She didn't know what it was which was even better. We started talking and I hook her and she seems into American culture and speaking English but then drops the boyfriend bomb a few minutes later killing the interaction. She wasn't quite as attractive as the previous 15 year old neither. Her friend soon arrived back but she was even less attractive then her and she spoke literally no English. I actually spent quite a long time talking to them when I probably should have just quickly finished my food and left. I contemplated asking for their contact info but in the end decided not to since she was already taken.

Next I headed to the mall to workout. I got a gym membership yesterday at Platium fitness for around 130 zl. The gym was full of all young people in the early 20's to mid 20's range. Guys outnumbered chicks but there was still a decent amount of girls at the gym. After not working out for nearly a month, this felt fucking fantastic. It's good that my cold is slowly getting better too so I don't need to be coughing my lungs out every 5 minutes. After I was done my workout I felt fucking amazing and wanted to go start approaching chicks even though I was holding a back containing all of my gym stuff and hadn't showered yet. Anyways, while scouting for targets, I ran into the forum member who I met up with that night at the nightclub. He was going grocery shopping so we just hung out for a little bit. At the grocery store, I actually approached two separate targets. I saw a cute blonde with glasses picking out apples and approached her asking her where she got a plastic bag, she was eager to help me but just before I could continue on, her friend came by and cockblocked me and took her away. I then walked around the supermarket and saw another tall brunette chick with some acne on her face looking through the fish aisle. I opened her asking her where I could find tuna but her English was very bad so she kind of ditched me after 10 seconds. I later saw her bf show up when she was lining up to pay for her groceries. I decided with the other forum member that I was going to do 1 more approach at the mall and have him critique my approach and tell me if he sees any problems. We started walking and looking for targets and then I spotted a chick on the second floor glancing by the window still of a jewelry store holding an ice cream. I walked up to her, let her notice me and then opened her asking her where I could find a bubble tea shop. We chatted for a while, actually quite long maybe at least 20 minutes. She asked for my name first before I even asked for hers, and asked me a few personal questions as well. I did some kino on her shoulder and got some laughs out of her and then number closed her, and also setup a date for tuesday at 7pm on the spot as well. I told her we would go out for coffee or some bubble tea or something. She initially suggested we exchange facebook but I said I don't use it that much and had her give me her number and full name and I called her on my phone so she would get my number. I also tested her and asked her what my name was and then pretended to walk away when she got it wrong which got her laughing. She was alright too.

After that, me and my wing left the mall and agreed to meet again tomorrow. While walking home, I saw that pretty blonde chick who worked at that strip club who I spoke to a few days ago with the Americans. I was considering talking to her again and trying to game her but she didn't approach me. I retreated home after that, just talking to a few chicks online. There was one chick who I number closed on tinder last week who told me she was busy last week so I sent her a restart text but she avoided my request to meetup and tried to shift the conversation sideways so I told her "it doesn't look like your interested in hanging out so goodluck with everything." I also spoke with a cute Latvian chick who unfortunately finally got back to me after I left the country. I noticed she had a couchsurfing profile that said "wants to meet up." and she also replied back saying "don't tell me you've already left." I'm thinking of maybe trying to get her to fly over here to Poland since its only an 1hr a way and maybe offering her my couch for 1-2 days if she's willing to come here. Lastly that chick who I facebook closed yesterday still hasn't accepted my facebook friend request. Hopefully she comes through because I actually want to see her again and go out with her. There's also that girl who I facebook closed on thursday but I'm not sure if I really want to go through with it. I saw pics of her on facebook and I remember how she looked like and I'm not really turned on at all to be honest. She's from a village and I don't want her to get attached or anything or fall for me only for me to say bye bye later. I don't know if I'm stupid or what but I'm having a hard time going through with it.

I later went back to the old town to grab some food. I walked by that chick again hoping she would come and approach me but I guess she either recognized me or saw me blow off the other girls with umbrella's. That's about it. I feel like I'm not approaching enough. Tomorrow I'm going to make it my goal to approach at least 10 girls, hopefully I can finally score a day 2.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 10:

Today I was supposed to meetup with the same forum member as yesterday to do some daygame but the dude flaked on me citing being hung over from the previous night. I decided to grab lunch and hit the gym. I noticed 1 chick look at me once or twice but she was with her friend so I didn't bother to talk to her. After that was done I decided to do a few sets before going home to shower and then return back. While walking around looking for targets I ran into another forum member that I met that night at Lokal. We were talking for a bit and then suddenly he went straight for a chick seated by the benches and approached her. I decided it was a waste of my time to just watch him from afar because I needed to get my approaches done so I did a half circle around the mall but when I circled back he had left his set. He mentioned he grabbed her number and that she was meeting her friends so he left the set. Next he approached another chick while we were walking but soon left the set. I asked him what type of openers he was using and he said direct. This made me feel a little uneasy because I have been terrified of using the direct opener for ages. I first experimented with this opener back in Toronto and got some pretty harsh blow outs from chicks, usually a very dirty look, a hand, or a fuck off from them which obviously damaged my ego to the point where I'm no longer comfortable using it. Anyways after reading Kirdiesel comment from another thread and speaking with this fellow roosh member, I think I will start conveying more interest either using direct or indirect direct to experiment.

After witnessing him approach all these girls and him telling me how much dates and girls he's approached I felt a little bad inside like I wasn't stepping up so I scanned the mall again and saw a blonde walking by herself just slowly observing the stores so I approached her.

me: excuse me, do you know where I can find a bubble tea shop here?
her: looks confused "bubble tea?"
me: yeah, you know with tea and milk, and these tapioca balls. You have these giant straws that you suck up the balls. I make a sucking gesture holding a straw. I heard its very popular here because they love kpop
her: oh, I'm not from around here
me: oh, where are you from then?
her: brazil, starts to smile
me: Brazil? I thought you were polish, you have this polish look to you
her: she starts laughing
me: you have blonde hair and puffy cheeks. I thought Brazilians didn't have blonde hair and had tanned skin
her: she continues to laugh
her: where are you from?
me: some where very far away, I make a gesture with my hand of a plane flying.
her: China?
me: nope. Somewhere where white bears chase after people and eat them
her: laughs and eyes dilate
her: Australia or something
me: nope. Canada
her: Looks surprised. "Really? Canada?"
me: ya, I think I am the first Canadian here or something
her: continues to smile.
her: what's your name?
me: destiny and your's?
her: Her name
Some of the random shit I forgot about
me: you speak really good English.
her: noo... smiles
me: I nodd and kino her shoulder. You know you have very pretty eyes too, hazel like in colour. (She was actually very attractive, like at least an 8, with long straight blonde hair and big round eyes)
her: she continues to smile
We continue to banter and I can tell right away she's digging me based on her asking me all these personal questions right off the bat and the way her body language is responding to me. She tells me she's here traveling alone on vacation but that her flights in 3 hours. I probably shouldn't have done this but I figured hey what the hell?
me: you know, I'm getting kind of thirsty, there's a coffee shop right over there. I point to some random location in front of us. Let's go grab a quick coffee for 5 minutes or something.
her: pauses and contemplates it.
me: just five minutes and then I kind of start walking in that direction
her: ok and follows my lead.

Surprisingly there was actually a bubble tea stand right in front of us lol. I order us a drink and explain it to her. We grab a seat and start talking. She's asking me a shit tonne of questions and she tells me she's a psychologist so joke with her about being to cold read people. I then point to some random chick walking by with a pink hat and backpack with an alien on it. I ask her if she can cold read the girl. She's like no so then I attempt to do it just out of self-amusement. I make up some random bullshit about the girl being a weirdo hence the strange fashion and how she probably ended up that way because her parents neglected her or something lol. This kind of impressed the Brazilian chick. I then drop some stuff that I know about psychology like Freud, b.f. skinner, Carl Jung, etc. I also found out that she's mixed Italian and Austrian, so essentially European. We talk about her travels, and try to show some vulnerability by talking about my childhood memories and then ask her how her childhood was like. She unfortunately glanced down on her watch about 20-30 minutes into the instadate and said she had to take off in five minutes, but we ended up chatting for like 15 minutes before she said she had to go. I grabbed her facebook and then I leaned in to give her a hug and she pointed her cheek for me to kiss. Definitely high interest from her. If I had more time with her who knows how things would have went. What a pity.

I then make my way around the mall again looking for more targets. I spoke some short chick in glasses on the lower floor and opener with the same opener. She tells me she's Ukrainian but I didn't get much investment from her besides asking me where I was from. I tried to roleplay with her about opening a chain of beer stores in Ukraine because she told me the Poles go over to Ukraine to buy beer because it's cheaper there. She leaves like 3-5 minutes into the interaction. I probably could have tried to sustain the conversation but I was lacking in energy and she just average looking so I said screw it.

It takes me a while to look for another target due to my indirect openers and I didn't want to waste too much time with girls that I didn't find attractive but I found a cute blonde with also big round eyes on the main floor leaning up against the aisle. I opened her with the same opener and when she initially tried to end the conversation I continued to try and plow through it until finally getting her to invest into the interaction. We talk about polish food and I tell her it's alright and she kind of gets defensive and is like it's the best in a somewhat teasing way lol. I continue to ploy to build a connection with her and near the end of the interaction maybe around the 10 minute mark she finally starts to show some investment. She is kind of like standing there lost in train of thought trying to ask me some questions. I think she wanted to ask me too many and didn't know which ones to choose so had to think about it. Unfortunately after her asking me the first question her friends came out of the shop so she bid me farewell and took off. I needed a bit more time for this one, maybe another 5-10 minutes but I probably wouldn't have been able to get more then a number from her due to her friends. I needed to get the number quickly from this one but she needed time to marinate first which I didn't have.

Next I went back to the second floor and saw some average looking brunette. She saw me looking at her and when I tried to make eye contact again and opened her she is like "sorry, I'm not from here." and walks away.

Then it just so happens that I ran into that guy again and then he introduced me to his friend this short arab dude from Dubai who not surprisingly I met before that night at the Lokal. The forum guy quickly opened another set while me and the Dubai guy chatted. I asked him how his daygame was going. He told me he opened direct and got 1 date out of every ten approaches which I found to be reasonably. He said because he's short and not good looking this was pretty reasonable. He told me that I shouldn't have a problem and should actually be doing better then him, which made me feel kind of bad inside. He's like the girls tell me the polish dudes are lame and boring and have no personality but you and me, we have personality and are fun and charming so you shouldn't have a problem with the girls. He soon left and the forum member came back to me. We chatted some more and then he said he was going to go grab some food but I told him I wanted to do another 6 more before taking off. I bid him farewell and then went back at it. Unfortunately my approach anxiety got the best of me and I spend close to 30 minutes walking around without opening a single girl so I pussied out and left the mall. It just so happened when I was walking near the doors I saw a chick with a luggage case. I walked out of the mall and noticed she was behind me so I opened her feighting ignorance on where the old town was. She offered to walk me for a bit and I quickly transitioned the conversation but didn't get more then 1 minute into the interaction before she said she was going the other way, telling me what direction to go to next.

So as I make my way back to the old town I figure, shit I only did 1/4 of what I wanted to do today but then I spotted a chick standing outside of the kfc by herself so I opened her with the bubble tea opener. She didn't give me anything to work with. I found out she was from turkey, studying music here but she didn't really engage my replies after me trying to plow away for 3-4 minutes so I just said thanks and took off. That was it.

I had earlier messaged that chick who was a 5.5 on facebook about meeting up with her. I really did not want to do it but I figured I need to make some sacrifices. I feel kind of bad about it though because she told me she's from a village or something and had that innocence to her. If I do go all the way with her, then I will feel terrible about it when I ditch her but if I don't find her attractive at all during the date, it will end up being botched and she will leave disappointed anyways. Man, this is why you should only approach girls you find at least somewhat attractive. Not really sure what to do for tomorrow but time is quickly running out and I still haven't had much success yet. Not even a bang or makeout! What am I going to do??? Tomorrow I will try to experiment with 1 direct and 1 indirect-direct opener and test it. Using direct I can pretty much approach any chick being obvious versus my indirect approach where I have to act it out and look lost and confused. Hopefully something good comes out of it.

RE: My Travel Journal
Try evening game...minimize day-game unless you have hours to waste, overall low ROI.

Scout coffee shops and always try to sit next to girls. Bring a book as a prop so you don't look out of place. I remember when I was in Warsaw a few years back majority of my number closes were done this way. It also feels very natural unlike direct approaches on the street.

RE: My Travel Journal
I texted that chick who I number closed 2 days ago last night with a meeting location just as a way of seeing whether she would be flaking or not and guess what? As expected she came up with some bs. So we can we learn from this?

I probably didn't build enough of a connection/attraction with her during the interaction. I had it at 50/50 when I was conversing with her. The thing that really killed the vibe was when she received a phone call about half way into the interaction which left me standing there feeling awkward, who knows but maybe she was saying shit about me to her friend as well while she was on the phone.

The other girl, the medical student. I'm analyzing it now as well and I'm pretty sure I fucked that one up as well. Initially I got some interest in her and I probably should have just grabbed her number and bolted at the ten minute mark especially when she said "Your such an optimistic person" ending on a high note instead of sticking around. I also made the stupid mistake of saying that I would come to her dance school to which is kind of creepy and makes me look like a stalker. I was just rambling on about random shit and I guess that slipped out of my tongue when we were talking about dance schools. Then near the end, I was being way too aggressive with making her decide on the spot about meeting up with me. Instead of being more passive which is my usual style I did a complete 180 and became super aggressive. I still got lots to learn. Today I will go for a indirect-direct opener and test the waters even though I am terrified about using those.

Scout coffee shops and always try to sit next to girls. Bring a book as a prop so you don't look out of place. I remember when I was in Warsaw a few years back majority of my number closes were done this way. It also feels very natural unlike direct approaches on the street.

I will give it a shot tonight. I just need to go look for some coffee shops now that has single targets and seats beside them.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 11:

I watched a few videos and read a few articles today mainly relating to direct openers. I wanted to see how the person would transition it from opening to grabbing the number or instadate and it didn't seem that bad. I was really eager albeit scared to try it out but was determined to overcome this fear of conveying interest right away and putting myself out there. However, I soon read a comment on one of my other thread. I was very upset and depressed after reading one comment in particular on that thread which killed my mood to do any approaches. I headed down to my usual place to eat lunch and there was 1 chick in front of me but due to my depressed mood, I couldn't game her. I sat down on the table eating my lunch reflecting on my life and what the future holds for me. How the hell am I going to succeed here in Krakow and my ever decreasing limited time which would force me back to my reality of being stuck in that shithole Toronto with very little prospect of improving my gaming skills there. After I was done lunch, I headed to the gym. I first opened a chick using the fly machine. I don't think she spoke english or was very shy. She didn't really know how to respond but understand what I meant when I asked if I could jump into her set. While using the dip/chin up station, I noticed a chick looking at the station using the mirror and gestured for her to go ahead. She didn't really say anything to me. Then later I saw a dude with a chick using a pull down station and wanted to open the chick but instead opened the dude asking if I could use it. After my workout though, I felt much much better and in a more social mood. I actually wanted to approach chicks and didn't feel too much approach anxiety or rather it was on a more manageable level. However, my mind was thinking your sweating and smelly right now, and your holding a bag containing your workout gear. You should go home first and shower and then return. I'm not if this was just my mind making excuses or not but it worked. I headed to the carrfour inside of the mall and while waiting in line to pay for my drink, I saw 3 brown dudes behind me in the line and immediately opened them. I asked if they were from India and then asked them why they were in Poland and then suggested they either worked in IT, Engineering, or Finance. This got all of them cracking up and actually two of them said they worked in IT. I asked them how come you never see Indian dudes do something else like singing or dancing and then suggested that they do a career switch to something like that so that they could stand out and become famous because everyone else was doing IT or Finance which got more laughs out of them.

After that was done, I was still feeling in a social mood and should have capitalized on it but instead went to look for a salsa school. I found near my apartment but the lessons don't start until next week and its only once a week. I probably would only be able to show up to 2 classes while paying for a month's lessons. I put my name down on a sign up sheet but later realized that I wouldn't be able to come more than twice so fuck that. I ain't paying a full month's tuition only to learn two lessons. After this I headed home, hoping to shower and then hit the mall again. Unfortunately I got a little distracted once home with some messages and ten felt unbelievable tired. I really wanted to go out and try direct openers or indirect-direct but my body and mind felt really tiring. I ended up taking a nap for close to an hour and then was starving. I'm not sure if its my mind trying to sabotage my attempts of confronting my fear or not, but I was really pissed off. I had to drag my ass out of the house and told myself if you ain't going to open any chicks with a direct opener then your bringing your ass to a nightclub later tonight or going to a coffee shop to talk to chicks. I made my way to the old town and was approached by 3 people soliciting me to go to strip club. I had some fun toying with them and then opened a dude walking in the same direction as me why chuckled at me playing with them. I headed down to a McDonald's to eat right after because I wanted to sit down somewhere warm to have dinner. As I was eating, some arab dude comes up to my table asking if he can use the wall charger so I say sure. I then open him and ask him where he's from. We start talking and he tells me he's from Palestine and soon some dude behind us joins in the conversation. At first I thought ok, this will be good to bring me into a social mood before I start approaching girls but then they started talking about politics and open borders and shit which made me extremely bored of the conversation and I wanted to bail. I don't know if it was a good thing or not that I didn't leave but soon as we were leaving the Palestinian asks for our contact info so we exchange our facebooks. I then ask the other dude who was from Armenia but lives here now if he wanted to grab a beer. He works as a Segway tour guide here. He said he would take me to some club tomorrow called Teatro Cubano. He said he pulled there before. We decided to head there anyways just to check it out since I've never been inside. The place smelled of tobacco as we went further inside. He immediately recognized some chick and then they talked for like 10 seconds. Then we headed inside and he gave two people nodds so I'm guessing this dude has some connections here. He told me he knew some of the people there.

We decided to leave because it was a sausage fest with mobs of dudes just waiting outside of the dance floor to pounce on chicks. We headed to one of those cheap student 4zl bars to grab a beer. I bought him a round and we chatted for a bit and this dude is pretty much telling me his whole life story and how he ended up here in Poland. He offered to host me if I ever were to visit Armenia and show me around if I went to Germany or to come back here in Poland. He also said tomorrow he was going to introduce me to his friends and some girls he knows. A nice fellow, hopefully I can learn some things from him. I feel like this dude is Poland's version of the Turk I met in Riga.

So ya, I'm really disappointed in myself today for not doing what I said I was going to do. I'm not sure if its my subconscious mind trying to prevent me from doing it by making me feel tired or other bullshit excuses but I'm not happy about it. Tomorrow is my rest day so I will have more time to daygame so I'm going to force myself to do it no matter what!

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 12:

This was a fucked up day. I got home at 4am last night.

I started the day off by visiting my local places for food. I got several messages from the Armenian to come visit him at the town square to go on a segway tour for free. I wasn't too interested in that because that's not what I came here for. Anyways I decided to go check it out nonetheless. Since I pussied out of using direct openers the previous day, I was determined to do it today. I met up with him while he was working and using the segway. I then got the idea that maybe I should use direct openers on it to pick up girls. At first I was a little scared but I eventually pushed through it and rode up to some attractive blonde walking by and opened her.

I said some variation of this. "Hey miss, I just came over here because I wanted to tell you I found you cute and wanted to say hi." She was very friendly and laughed but told me she was heading off to her Italian class. I let her go after 1 minute. But then the Armenian wanted his segway back to try and pick up girls as well after seeing me do it. He opened a mother daughter couple which I found was kind of pointless. He rode on it with the daughter in toll but then returned back to his work duties when he tried to sell a group of british tourist. It kind of wasted my time while I waited to use the segway again. After he was done, I grabbed the segway and found a chick taking photographs by the town square and opened her.

I said something like "Hey, I'm your knight in shining armour coming to rescue you." which got a few laughs from her. I found out she's Ukrainian and was a tourist. I asked her about her logistics like what she was up to but this is where I maybe fucked up. She told me she was leaving in 2-3 hours but she was going to walk around for another hour so I had an instadate with her. I walked her down to Wawel castle and we even snuck into a closed off forbidden area but soon were discovered by security and kicked out. I didn't really kino her except when I was trying to show her how to punch and when we went back to the old town some street performer was playing my heart will go on so I told her to take her hands out to the side like that scene from titantic. I should have done that when I brought her to the castle and there was a beautiful view and then tried to get into her personal space and escalate on her. Anyways, she gave me a handshake but I said no, and gave her a hug and then left. What a waste of my time. In the future, if a chick's logistics isn't good, I ain't even bothering with them. She needs to be here for at least 1 more day before I even waste my time on them. Also I was very frustrated and pissed off at myself for not knowing how to escalate on her when we were walking and I was showing her around. I was thinking maybe I should have stuck my arm out and told her to grab it while we walked or something. I acted too much like a platonic friend.

Well at least, I pushed through that mental wall and did two direct openers. Today I will try again with direct openers but also look for a way to convey my interest non-verbally as well, maybe perhaps by giving her an intense sexual stare or something.

I soon returned back to the Armenian who was asking where the hell I went. We went for a beer at a bar that I wanted to scout out for future dates and then dinner. We agreed to meet up later to go to Teatro Cubano as well for nightgame. The guy seemed to know a lot of people there and introduced me to 1-2 people. He was like don't worry man, just come and follow my lead and moves. As soon as we got in, this dude headed straight for the dance floor but then he took it a step higher and headed to the stage where others were also dancing and started to grab chicks and dance. I was like holy shit! It was a bit too intense for me right off the bat as I stood on the dance floor feeling really awkward so I retreated from the dance floor and headed to the bar overlooking the dance floor. I watched him dance and he was actually not too bad of a dancer but the biggest thing I noticed was that he was very comfortable in his own skin and very confident. Rejection meant nothing for him as he got several rejections in a role when he tried to grab girls hands. He did dance with a smoking hot tall blonde though although I think she was only there to get attention and dance. She soon rejected him after their dance was over. I grabbed a beer and tried to regain my composure. I was thinking "No!, your not going to be one of those fucking guys who just holds a beer in his hand and stands there watching people." Once I pushed through this mental barrier I opened a blonde chick waiting to order a drink. 'your going to have to wave 100 zloty to get some service here." I yelled to her but she couldn't really hear me and when I repeated, she didn't really understand my joke so I left her. I started to fish for eye contact as I stood there near the bar and about 10 maybe 15 minutes later saw a brunette stand near me so I opened her.
"so are you as good of a dancer as them?" She couldn't hear me so I got into her personal space and tried again. She was like "ya" and kind of just smiled. I decided not to abandon the set and re-engaged again with something else which I can't remember now. After saying 2-3 different things to her she finally started to warm up and asked for my name and more personal questions, but then her friend showed up and cockblocked me. They started to speak in Polish. I don't remember if the brunetter re-opened me or if I did it to her but soon we were talking again. I tried to talk to her blonde friend as well but she just answered "me no speak English." I then said nice to meet you and cheers to her in polish which warmed her up a little. I tried to ask the brunette to go dance but she said she was leaving now with her friend. I teased her about leaving so early but then when she was leaving I came up to her, grabbed her shoulder and yelled into her ear "How will I see you again?" or something. She wrote down my name to add me on facebook and I did the same and then they left. I then opened a early 40's ugly looking Portugese guy. We started talking and I asked him to go talk to some girls but he said he was shy and chickened out. I soon opened another blonde chick with glasses, but I think her bf was in front of using ordering them drinks. I got 1-2 laughs out of her but then she left with her bf so I continue talking to the Portuguese guy. Suddenly a cute brunette in a white blouse stations herself right beside me on my right and makes eye contact with me. I hold eye contact and smile at her and then say hi to her.

She returns the gesture and holds eye contact. She asks for my name and we both introduce ourselves. She starts asking me personal questions right off the bat but the music is too loud. She then says she's going to leave and head to the dance floor now and invites me to come join her and her friend so I follow them. Once on the dance floor they start dancing, and after about a 1 minute of pushing through the mental barriers I finally have the confidence to grab her hand and start dancing with her. My dancing is shit but whatever. Then she pauses and grabs her phone and asks for my facebook. Then we resume dancing but I kind of let her hands go for like 1 minute but then as soon as that happens a mixed black dude opens her but she blows him off. She says she doesn't like muslims or terrorist or something like that to me. I start dancing with her again but don't have my hands on her but suddenly a fucking guy swoops in and steals her from me and they start dancing. I was like "fuck!." Not this shit again. Within 2 minutes they start dancing intimately and he starts kissing her neck and soon they move onto the stage and he starts making out with her. The Portuguese guy is now right beside me and is like don't like that happen man but I didn't know how to react. I was fucking pissed. This is like the 3rd time I've been amog'd now. I finally start getting the confidence to grab girls hands and dance with them but as soon as I let them off for less than 1 minute I lose the girl wtf.

The girl's friend was kind of left alone on the dance floor and I contemplated dancing with her to get back at that chick but then said fuck it and walked back up the bar. I saw her and the dude continue to make out. Then my Armenian friend comes up to the bar and I tell him what happened. He's like don't worry, come with me and follow my moves so I follow him back to the dance floor and onto the stage. He starts grabbing girls hands and gets rejected but also lands 1-2 girls this way. At this point, I'm still pissed so I just grab a chick's hand but then get rejected lol. Then I see him grab another group of girls hands but get rejected but soon I'm dancing near their circle and make eye contact with the mother hen and I guess she approves so I high five her and then locked hands with her and spin her around. Now I'm kind of in the center of the group and dancing with the mother hen. I kind of let her go and then grab a blonde's hand that is apart of the grab as well and spin her around. My wing tries to join the set but the mother hen is like "No!, not you." so he leaves and starts dancing by himself. I continue to dance with them and one of their male friends yells to my ear "they are all single." I just kind of fist pump him and we all continue to dance but soon they leave. I tell my wing I'm going to the bathroom cause I had to pee badly. There was a hard line up there but I spoke to 2-3 of the guys there. One portuguese and one mexican guy. I also saw the group of girls smoking beside the bathroom. I make eye contact with the mother hen and we exchange a few words. It turns out they are spanish but they don't speak English.

After returning from the washroom I go back to the dance floor and spoke that brunette with the white blouse now dancing and making out with another guy. I'm like wtf. I don't see my wing so I head back to the bar area. I speak a bit with the portuguese guy and we talk about that chick. He is like "he's made out with at least 2 different guys." I'm thinking this chick is either a whore or a prostitute. She probably either just got dumped or broke up with her bf, is a whore that comes out all the time, or a pro. In either case, probably a bad choice. Soon, I station myself near a table and open a tall blonde sitting by herself. We exchange a few words but then she takes off. I now see the brunette with the white blouse by the bar. She's now talking to an asian guy while her friend is entertaining another older dude. I see her whip out her phone and exchange contacts with him and then soon they switch dudes and she starts talking to the other guy. He has his hands on her face and is caressing it.

I'm pretty tired at this time and decide to just call it a night but my wing still wants to party so I don't abandon him. I stay there and now notice the spanish girls are back so I go up to them. One of them girls signals for me to come join them again and I go dance with them. I grab the mother hen's hands and try to spin her but accidentally knock some dude on the forehead while spinning her head so she's like no more spinning lol. I wasn't digging any of the chicks there so I just say I'm taking off and say goodbye.

I return to my wing and he appears to now have facebook closed one tall blonde chick. We head to the coatcheck and I see the brunette and her friend leave with that guy who was caressing her face but then like five minutes later I see her hang by the coatcheck area. The spanish girls are also there and we kind of grab their hands as we're leaving. I went home and tried to add that chick who gave me her name for facebook but soon discovered she has a bf. WTF! I requested her as a friend nonetheless. I also have that whore who requested my friend request but I don't know if I should accept it or decline it now.

I woke up this morning to a facebook message from my date that she's cancelling, wtf. OMG! I just can't catch a fucking break can I? I had a great interaction with this chick but I suppose I waited too long to contact her and all of those good feelings disappeared. Now I'm just some stranger she met last week. I wasn't really feeling her so that's why I didn't try to contact her sooner.

Ok guys, I need some serious help with the Amog'ing issue. This has been a recurring problem. I'm at the point where I feel like just punching these dudes in the face for stealing the girl I'm working on. Obviously I won't do this, but its really pissing me off. Also I don't what the hell is going on but I can't ever get any day 2's. I'm trying to analyze it objectively but it appears to be good interactions and stuff but then I never hear from the chick again.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 13:

I started the day off with the usual routine, grab lunch and then head to the main square. The Armenian though wasn't around even though he texted me earlier to come to he main square when he was working. I was hoping to grab the segway from him and use it as a prop but unfortunately couldn't find him. He told me he would come like in 10 minutes when I arrived there but the guy took almost an hour to arrive. I saw several girls who I found very attractive but I let them all slip through because of approach anxiety. I was feeling really disappointed each time I let another target walk by out of my life forever. I was hoping I would get some moral support if he was around to push me but it didn't come. When he finally arrived, I was feeling pretty down now by this point. He told me to come with him to a cafe for a few minutes because he was meeting some friends. I said alright and went with him. Inside he introduced me to some overweight morrocan guy living in spain and some mixed black guy living in Italy. I noticed a cute blonde sitting beside their table that was a little overweight but still alright. I wanted to talk to her and she glanced over at us a few times. The Armenian guy opens her but she kind of shruggs him off. He tries again when her friend returns but gets nothing with them. The Moroccan notices that something is bothering me and asks. I tell him about my bad luck with women and he's like over here if the women find out that your a tourist or leaving soon they will put up a wall and not even give you a chance. He's like you need to lie to them and tell them you live here. The Armenian and other Italian guy also agreed. This really caused a lot of internal conflict with me. I don't like to lie and stuff but at the same time, I'm not getting anywhere with the women neither. So what is the right thing to do?

We soon bid them fairwell and the Armenian tells me he needs to speak to his landlord by the old town so we head back. Now I was determined to do something, even if I had to do some warmups. I went around the old town and asked like 2 people where the burger king was with no intention of maintaining the conversation. Alright, I could feel the anxiety slowly easing up so now I tried to maintain the conversation longer. I saw a average height brunette walk by and opened her asking about burger king but quickly transitioned into asking her for her opinion about what was better to eat and then transitioned to asking her more personal questions. Unfortunately she had to run off to buy something at a store before they closed in 20 minutes so I let her go. Very friendly interaction. Then I opened a taller blonde with semi short hair. Also cute. We talked a bit longer now and I teased and joked with her and she got my humor and laughed quite a bit. Unfortunately she had to run off to some polish concert so I let her go. I only had like no more than 5 minutes with her too. I needed a bit more time. Then I soon approached a short girl in a red coat and also had a good interaction with her but then some big tall polish dude showed up and I got cockblocked. I had to shift my attention to him and he said he used to take his wife to some restaurant so they I asked him if that girl was his wife and they said no. They soon left as well and the Armenian returned. He wanted to go eat but I told him I needed to get some approaches in before I can go. I needed some leads and contacts so we headed to the mall. He tells me again while we are walking there that you need to just tell them if they ask that you live here or something and I finally relented and said ok.

We hit the mall and after buying him a drink I leave him at the food court because he said he was hungry. I do several passes around the mall hoping to open some girls with direct openers but chicken out. I get really frustrated and pissed at myself and eventually decide to just switch back to asking for directions. I open one girl and she tells me she doesn't know and leaves. I spend the next 30 minutes or so letting target after target pass by me feeling horrible. Then I spoke some brunette who's wearing a black tank top with an amazing looking body. I knew I had to talk to her. I initially pussied out of doing it but soon forced myself to open her. I finally opened her but she said she didn't understand English too well. I then transitioned from asking for help to saying I actually came here to tell her I found her attractive but she didn't understand. I did get a few laughs and smiles from her though. I'm not sure if I should have stayed in that set or not but I let her go. My calf muscle was killing me at this point from all of the walking so I had to have a rest by a bench. I noticed a blonde with glasses soon sat down on the bench on the opposite side. I tried to fish for eye contact but didn't get much but I noticed she was holding another coat which I presume was either a bf or friend so I didn't open her. Soon her bf returned and they left. I did 2-3 more passes between the ground floor to second floor but returned back to the Armenian disappointed and in shame. He can tell I'm noticeably upset and quiet and is like don't be sad. Your making me sad now because I see that your unhappy. I don't like when my friends are unhappy. He then calls his friend and his friend shows up. Some mid 40's polish brit with a bandana on his head and brown leather jacket shows up. He seems kind of eloquent and well mannered. They talk for a bit while I'm still kind of silent. Then the Armenian says something to me. He's like I also have problems too, worse then you. I don't know about my living situation, maybe I won' have a place to sleep at. He had some issues with his landlord with rent payment and his landlord withholding some documents from him. He's like I didn't tell you this but I also have problems too. This kind of made me change my perspective about my situation. Then the polish guy also jumps in and we start talking. He tells me how the Armenian has this I don't give a shit attitude and how during Halloween he dressed up as Zorro and danced with close to twenty chicks but was getting blown off one after another after another until finally dancing with some girls. I kind of admired his I don't give a fuck attitude and mindset and wished I could adopt and have a similar mindset. It certainly would help with the approach anxiety and also my interactions in general.

After that long discussion, we hitted a restaurant to eat and soon hit up Teatro Cubano. I opened some spanish and greek dudes in front of me in line at the restaurant just to see if I could still do that. Teatro Cubano wasn't as packed as yesterday but had a tonne of hot chicks there. Both of the guys headed straight for the dance floor but I soon retreated back to the bar. I ordered a beer and stationed myself by the bar and waited for targets to come by. I opened a attractive tall brunette but she just kind of smiled at me and then returned her attention back to her friends and soon left. Next, I opened a blonde chick and kind of hooked her. She invested into the interaction and tried to challenge my frame by saying "why are you standing here if you already left?" I said "if there some rule that says I can't stand here if I already ordered my drink?" which got her laughing. We did a few exchanges and she soon left. I think she showed up with some guy, I'm not 100%. Also I ran into that Portuguese guy from yesterday and also that Moroccan and Italian guy at the club. I also spoke to a few guys at the club as well. A large number of the chicks there though came with their bf's which was bullshit. I also saw a several groups of girls who came there dressed like sluts obviously there just for the attention. They were blowing off guy after guy after guy. I didn't even bother with them. I saw the Armenian talk to some red head by the washroom and then bar. Her friend showed up and he still engaged the two but soon they disappeared. The Morrocan dude also tried to talk to some chick by the bar but got blown off as well. I soon noticed a tall blonde chick with glasses who looked like a 6 standing idle by a rail post so I made my way over to her and opened her. She was American and from NYC. We started talking a little bit and she said she lost her friends but they all soon returned and I got cockblocked. She introduced me to another Canadian guy from Alberta and we started talking. They asked to take a pic with me as well. They soon headed for the dance floor and I soon followed. I danced around the blonde and her friend while a dude tried to approach them and got blown off. I wanted to grab the blondes hand but was too chicken to do it. She didn't really give me much eye contact neither. After about 10 minutes on the dance floor trying to force myself to grab her hand, I quit and returned back to the bar. I ordered a beer and noticed three chicks standing at the same spot as the American blonde from before so I casually strolled over to a brunette on my right. She was kind of engaged with her friends so I had to wait a little bit. Then all of a sudden some drunk ass polish dude yelling out excuse me in polish pushes up against me and her. I use this an excuse and ask her what the hell is he saying. She isn't really engaged. So after waiting another 1-2 minutes I re-open her again. Again, not much so I try one more time and finally she starts opening up a little bit. She tells me she's a teacher of acting and also a singer. Her blonde friend that was also there was apart of her group. I probably should have teased her about if I signed up for her acting lessons would she make me into a superstar or something but the alcohol probably was taking its toll on me at that point. She didn't ask me any questions back so I kind of stopped talking to her. They soon left and I wasn't really happy with the results I was getting. It was getting late so I told the Armenian let's go.

We left the club and the Armenian immediately opens two blonde chicks sitting outside smoking. He introduces me but they both seem to be into him more and talking in polish. They soon go back inside. We decide to head to mcdonalds to eat and then I get approached by that really attractive blonde with the red umbrella. I tease her that she finally got a red umbrella because I spoke to her boss. She tries to persuade us to go into the strip club but I brush off her attempts and instead focus on her. I ask her what time she needs to go to her classes and then tease her that she has only 6 hours to sleep if she runs home right after which gets her laughing. I was too tired to try and game her so we left. The mcdonalds was packed so we headed to the kfc instead. Inside, the armenian opened a chick sitting beside him by the window but he told me she said she doesn't want to talk to him lol. Soon another two chicks find a table beside us and he talks to them. They don't really entertain him much neither. We finish our meal and leave.

I'm finding club game to be completely fruitless here other then to get me used to the club scene. I am getting more used to the environment and can actually open and somewhat talk to chicks now but still have massive approach anxiety. Bar game is useless as well because of the culture. I think my only option is daygame but my approach anxiety is fucking killing me here especially when I try direct or indirect-direct. Anyways I need to develop somehow a I don't give a fuck attitude in order to become more successful with approaching.

RE: My Travel Journal
You've basically named your main option as day game so you have to do it. Talk to everyone not just the phillies. Talk to guys, uggos, cuties, and dimes that should clear up the approach anxiety. With day game, you need to talk to everyone.

RE: My Travel Journal
Day 14:

I've been waking up quite late due to all of the partying nightgame I do each night which is taking its toll on me now. I watched some videos from James Marshall when I woke up which talked about the beginner's hell and that I should just tough it out. He also mentioned to try and reframe what I defined as a success. This really helped with my mental attitude. I headed out around 3:30pm and it was already getting dark. While eating lunch, I opened one of the staff who asked if he could sit on my table to eat. His English was bad so he didn't really speak much to me though but he did thank me for letting him sit down and said goodbye. As soon as I left the restaurant, it was time to game on. I immediately opened some women passing me asking for the time but she said she didn't speak English. I then immediately open a man asking the same question. Alright, now to increase the intensity. I next asked another women where I could find a burger king but she said she didn't speak English. I then spotted the Armenian and gave him a high five. He wanted to chill out but I told him I had work to do and would message him later. I walked around the town square and opened a middle aged women asking for a burger king. Her English wasn't good but she entertained my question and we spoke briefly. I got a few laughs and smiles from her. Then I opened another chick but she had to run. I told myself ok one more and then you will use an indirect-direct. I spotted a short brunette with glasses walking by and immediately opened her with the same opener. She was short with semi-long hair. A respectable 6. I immediately hooked her within 2 minutes and transitioned the conversation to focus on her, finding out she's studying graphic design, how she used to study english via skype, where she's originally from, and other stuff that I forgot about. She mentioned showing me to the burger king but I transitioned it to her showing me somewhere else to eat so we went on an instadate. We visited Galleria Krakowska and I also made sure to touch her arm and shoulder when I cracked her up or when I was emphasizing things. We did a loop around the mall but then I suggested that we go for coffee instead. She asked me what I was doing in Poland and I told her I was an English teacher that taught conversational English via Skype which is true but I quit the job last month lol. We grabbed a coffee and tea and a pastrie which I paid for from Costa coffee. Fucking expensive 37 zl for this. Its like 5 fucking dollars for a cappuccino. There wasn't any seats so we had to sit outside where they had extra tables. I bumped into the other forum member while waiting for my coffee and he was like "hey." I smiled and just turned to the chick otherwise it would have looked suspicious. I tried to grab a chair beside her but she placed her coat and bag down on the seat so I had to sit across from her. I wasn't really trying though so I didn't really give a shit. At one point, we were talking about exercises and she didn't know how to say correctly so I got up off my chair and did a squat in the middle of the mall. She was kind of surprised by me doing it and said I was brave. Then I asked her if she knew how to do push ups but she didn't understand so I went on the ground and did a push up and her jaw dropped. She was like your crazy but I guess she liked my confidence and me not giving a shit about people around us. Things were on a high note so I wanted to end the date. I wasn't sure if I should try to venue change her to my place or not but I figured nah. I need to get her out on a second date. I asked if she would like to go out again for a beer tomorrow or something and she agreed. She wanted my facebook. What the hell is with all these chicks and asking for my facebook? Is it because they want to dig up dirt on me or something? I said yah but I don't really go on it much and asked for her number. At first she was kind of hesitant but after asking for my skype and adding me on facebook later on during the instadate she was very eager to get my number down as well lol. At one point when I gave her my facebook, she was like didn't I see you somewhere? I was thinking oh shit, did I talk to this chick before or one of her friends or something? I asked her where and she said she maybe saw me on a skype teaching website or something. After we exchanged facebook's at this point I wanted to end the date so I was like let's go. She apparently didn't and said do you want to go to the grocery store to buy some food. I told her earlier that I was hungry so kind of just went along with it. We walked around the grocery store and she was kind of acting a little needy to be honest. It kind of put me off. I just grabbed a juice and some milk and said I would go buy something to eat instead of cooking, but I guess the idea of cooking food was starting to be planted inside of her head since we were grocery shopping and talking about cooking food.

After that was done, we walked back to the old town. I was kind of tired at this point having expended most of my energy on her. She asked me while we were walking back why I was suddenly quiet. I actually preferred the silence because I was tired. I told her I was sleepy and tired but soon resumed my talkative nature. I asked her what she was going to do later and she was like just go home, watch a movie and go to bed. She said she had a job interview tomorrow. At this point, I wasn't sure if I should invite her over to watch a movie since I didn't really physically escalate on her nor flirt with her. I figured it would be safer to do that tomorrow when we will meet up so I didn't suggest it. She was still glued to me when we got to the old town so I had to tell her goodbye and then she asked me what direction I was going and then followed me saying she was going in the same direction. Once I got to my street I said ok I'm going this way and gave her a hug and left. She seemed kind of disappointed it ended so soon but I would prefer to end it while she still wants more of me instead of staying too long and then running out of shit to say or do.

I wanted to go back to the old town but now I was carrying groceries so I headed back to my apartment. Once there unfortunately I was very tired and exhausted. I took a nap and when I woke up it was already around 10:30-11pm. I decided to try coffee game but when I showed up to the old town, all the fucking coffee shops were closed. I was thinking maybe gutter game might be appropriate but there was no single sets at all and I could sense the women's bitch shields being up as well. I did see one single target but she was being pestered and harassed by some spanish dudes with poor game whispering at her and being like "hey you, pretty girl." or some bullshit. I ran into the Armenian there and we decided to head to a club which is beside Frantic. The place was shit, nearly empty with three chicks dancing in a circle surrounded by dudes and then soon two fatties went to the dance floor. The Armenian tried to grab one of there hands to dance with them but got rejected. I was like fuck this, I ain't gonna go try to dance with this fat piece of shit and get rejected. I told him I was outta there and then just tried to locate any cafes that could possibly be opened but found nothing. I played around with the umbrella chicks a bit by pretending to run away from them when they got close to me. That attractive blonde was also working but she recognized me and didn't bother to approach me. I decided to grab a kebab from my favourite place. The employee recognized me and my order. He asked me if I was at shakers last week and if I lived here and we just kind of laughed. I noticed he gave me a enormous amount of chicken meat for my kebab too. It felt kind of good to have the people here recognize me and my orders and ask about me. Earlier today also one of the staff at Gospada koko also remembered my order. Its definitely a step up from fucking Riga, where they don't give a shit about their customers nor even try to get to know them.

I walked around Wawel castle and the vistula river for a bit just to relax and then soon got hungry again. I saw a chick sitting by the window by herself earlier at the KFC so I figured there must be more targets inside so I headed there to eat. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. I grabbed a sit by the window nonetheless hoping a chick would also sit beside me. A few minutes passed by and then some tall dude asks me in polish if the seat was taken. I answer him in English but he's still speaking to me in Polish so I say to him in Polish "Do you speak English." and then surprisingly this due busts out a native English Kiwi accent. He starts asking me where I'm from and we start talking and he tells me he's from New Zealand but is married to a polish woman and has a daughter. We start talking and he asks me why I'm in Poland. I wasn't sure if I should be honest with him or not but I said fuck it and told him I came here to get a handle on my dating life. This seemed to offend him for some reason. He mentions that he has a young daughter and is worried about her or something. I tell him that I was in Latvia to see some chick but she fucked me over and I'm hoping to find her replacement over here. This seems to confuse him even more. I then explain to him how fucked up the situation is in Toronto and how most of my friends are married or getting married to fatties and punching well below their weight. He tells me something about having a normal conversation with people and then points to a group of polish people outside taking pictures and is like you create your own reality or something and how everyone just bullshits things so I should bullshit as well. I didn't quite understand what he meant by that. I later tell him about how most of my friends go around telling me how I need to just fucking settle for dating trash in Toronto and how I can't do this or that and this seems to piss him off. He then gets directly in front of my face and I can smell the alcohol in him and I wasn't quite sure if he was talking at me or just acting out how he would respond if someone said that to him. I was worried this guy was going to punch me in the face or something because he started swearing and getting really worked up, but then he soon returned back to a calm demeanor and said "that's how I would have responded." or something. He also tells me he's kind of drunk too. I told him I was a late bloomer and was behind everyone. He says I am a superstar in my own reality or something then. He then tells me I just need to keep on going no matter what and that I will eventually get there. He then asks for my name and we shake hands. He soon takes his half eaten box of KFC and says he's going to give it to his friends or something and go home afterwards to his wife and daughter and then disappears. A very strange encounter. I felt like I was the main protagonist in a movie or something like in the movie Bruce almighty or Bedazzled where the main character meets god in the form of a man who gives him advice that isn't quite clear and he has to somehow figure out what god meant.

I left the kfc and then the Armenian was texting to meet up with me even though I told him I wanted to go home. He shows up a few minutes later but I tell him I'm taking off but that we will go visit the nightclub Shine tomorrow night.
