2 New Routines
I've been field testing 2 new routines with success lately, so I'll share them here. The first one I learned from a non-community guy, and the second one I've fine-tuned from an earlier version that was posted here by someone else.
1) Circle - Rectangle - Triangle - Zig/Zag Line
Take out a piece of paper and draw a circle, a square, a triangle, and a zig/zag line all next to each other. Make the zig/zag line like a diagonal W. Give the girl a pen and tell her to draw a vertical line through one of the shapes, it doesn't matter which one. Then tell her to draw a vertical line through another of the shapes, then another, and finally through the last one.
Each shape represents something different in life, and the order that she drew the lines is the order in which she values each in her own life.
Here's what each shape means:
Circle - Sex
The shape of a circle makes up an O, like the O in orgasm or the O a woman screams when she's having sex. Also, the male and female sex organs are circular (circular around at least).
Rectangle - Money
A rectangle makes up the shape of a dollar bill, a check, or a credit card.
Triangle - Security
A triangle is the shape of a roof on a house, which represents shelter, protection, and overall security in life.
Zig/Zag Line - Creativity
A zig/zag line with no defining shape represents her creative pursuits in life. This could be her career, her community service projects, her artistic endeavors, her book, her real estate project, etc.
So if she draws a line through the circle first, then the rectangle, then the triangle, then the zig/zag line, it means she values sex most importantly in life, then money, then security, then creative pursuits. So then you can bust on her for being a sexual predator. Even if she picks the circle second then you can still accuse her of trying to pick you up.
If she picks the rectangle first then you can neg her for being a greedy money whore.
If she picks the triangle first then the routine will make sense because security and shelter is generally the most important thing in a girl's life.
Very few girls will pick the zig/zag line first, but if a girl does then she will at least partially identify with it as being very important in life.
The routine is a win/win situation because if she chooses a realistic order of shapes (triangle or creativity first) then she'll identify with the routine, and if she chooses an unrealistic order (circle or rectangle first) then you can banter and role-play with her that she's using you for sex or for money. From personal experience, girls usually choose the circle or rectangle first, so get ready to banter.
Works best during day game or on a Day 2. Tough in noisy bars and clubs, mostly because you need pen and paper.
2) Briefcase of Money
"You're in a park and you walk upon a briefcase that's filled with money. There's gotta be at least $20,000 in there. You look around and no one else is in sight. What do you do?
a) Do nothing and leave the briefcase there
b) Take the briefcase to the police department
c) Take the briefcase with you and keep the money for yourself
This test is symbolic of your feelings while going on a first date:
So what does each choice mean?
a) You flake a lot on first dates. You become way too nervous and paranoid about how the date might go, and you are not willing to endure that to potentially meet the guy of your dreams.
b) You go on first dates, but with caution. You are nervous about how it might go (will he just want you for sex? will he call the next day? is he a psycho rapist?), but you are willing to risk all that in hopes that the date might go really well.
c) You go on first dates with no hesitation or nerves whatsoever. If you like the guy then great, but you'll probably end up just getting a free meal out of it and ditching him later. You never feel pressured that a guy might expect something out of you for taking you on a date, and you have no problem shafting him if he's not up to your standards."
Most of the time the girl will choose B, which works perfectly because the cold read that applies to B is applicable to almost every single girl who's going on a first date. Sometimes the girl will choose B with the rational that if no one claims the money in 90 days then she gets to keep it. This is good because you can bust on her being a money-grubber, while the accurate cold read still applies.
Routine is definitely used best in comfort. The only negative is that it doesn't always allow for banter/qualifying, so it would be good to use with other routines as well.
