A friend wrote in, saying my Day Bang review read like a sales pitch. That’d be odd, since there’s nothing for me to sell. What he really meant was: Why not go into specifics?
When someone earns his living writing books, you don’t want to put his information on the Internet for free. You are stealing another man’s dinner.
If I read a book that’s unavailable online, and share the tips, then everyone can post those same tips online. Suddenly a useful tactic becomes played out. My best material is never posted online, but instead is reserved for my real life friends and business associates.
I have, however, used two small tricks from Day Bang already, and can reveal them without causing the author any harm. Plus, the author of Day Bang is a legit guy, so maybe after using this stuff, you’ll realize why you need to buy his book.
On Friday night, I was at a hotel bar when I approached three girls. I opened with my standard neg:
Where are you visiting from?
Girl 1: We live around here.
Girl 2: But why’d you ask that?
Me: You look German. Are you German?
Girl 2: No, I’m Czech. Blah, blah, blah, twin sister, blah, blah.
Now the chick is talking about herself, telling me she’s Jewish, and telling me I look Jewish. Women really love talking about their ancestry – at least if they have any interest in getting to know you.
The “Are you German?” line is straight from Day Bang. The line works because 60% (according to Roosh) of women have Germanic ancestry. Even where – as in the case of the girl above – the girl isn’t German, she’ll go on about her ancestry if she wants to keep the conversation going.
Another tactic from Day Bang that works in intimate venues is “the Ramble.” I’ve used the Ramble in other contexts, but never when meeting women. It never even occurred to me to use this when meeting women. What’s the Ramble?
In situations where you must develop rapport (client meetings), you’re often dealing with a cold fish. A cold fish may want to talk, but some people take longer than others to open up. A Ramble also helps relax a situation. A Ramble is a longer-than-usual conversation about a mundane detail. A Ramble is an invitation to the other person that says, “Hey, you can talk to me.”
Once I met a very powerful person. After the meeting, we shook hands. Then an awkward moment almost occurred.
I can only write well with a certain type of pen. This pen has a tendency to explode/leak when taken on airplanes. I had just returned from a trip, and the pen must have been leaking, as the guy looked down at his hands, and saw a blue stain on them.
Do you journal, he asked me
I do, and if I were you keeping a journal, this is the exact type of thing I’d journal.
The guy was sort of rambling, and yet it wasn’t pointless chatter. What was really going on in that dialogue? He was telling me that the rookie move of getting ink on his hands was no big deal. He was communicating that he journals. He was hinting that I should consider journaling. He was inviting me to ask about his journaling.
When you meet a woman during the day (or in a quiet venue), the Ramble is a great opener. Imagine I go into a coffee shop where a woman has a pen next to her. What might I say? I’d ramble about the story, above:
That’s a nice pen. It reminds me of the time I had just returned from a conference in New York. I had an important job interview that went very well. I had taken some notes, and had been so focused on the interview, that I didn’t realize my pen must have exploded from the altitude. After we shook hands, his hand was stained with blue ink. I was mortified.
The girl has a lot to work with. What happened next? Was the guy pissed? Why was I in New York? What was the job interview for? Do I still know the guy?
If she has any interest at all in talking to me, she’s going to ask some of those questions. If she doesn’t have any interest in me, she’ll turn towards her computer.
The Ramble is thus a highly effective way of opening a woman while also gauging her interest in you. The Ramble also communicating positive information about me (I’m the kind of guy who travels to New York for conferences) without being too try-hard.
In fact, the Ramble is worth the cost of the book alone.
I’m not going to give away anymore of the Day Bang’s trade secrets. When the book is released, it is only going to cost $15 or so. I
