Instant Date a Model: Step-by-Step Analysis

August 31, 2010

It’s learnin’ time chaps. Here’s a video of a Malaysian model I picked up a few days ago near Trafalgar Square, with full audio from approach to instant date. Suave and I have been shooting a bunch of these for a new seminar we’re working on but this is a freebie. The date itself was an hour so I’ve edited that bit down alot.

Before I kick off with a minute-by-minute analysis of the video, here’s the first few general learning points:

1. She’s a solid 9, in her early twenties. I’m an ugly fucker in his mid-thirties. That should tell you something about how limiting beliefs are all in your head.
2. Aside from her modelling, she’s also a photographer, serious martial artist and a video game nerd. That’s why she’s listening with rapt attention when I talk about sparring, and later we had a discussion on the relative merits of Lost Planet 2 and Left 4 Dead co-op multiplayer.
3. It was raining the whole time. That shouldn’t stop your daygame.

0:08 – Real photos from her portfolio.
0:18 – Middle of the road, waiting in a shop queue, lying in a park, whatever. You can open anywhere. Just adjust your calibration accordingly.
0:22 – This is what Yosha calls the unconventional interruption / pre-frame before the opener itself. An “excuse me” plus a short statement to build intrigure that separates you from the salesmen, chuggers and panhandlers that also approach girls.
0:24 – Every opener is different and should be tailored to the girl. My rule is to think “what is it that made me notice and approach her, rather than any other attractive girl”. That’s harder than you think because there are so many barriers in your mind between you and your sincerity. This girl looked very serious so I used that. It paces her reality, intrigues her, makes her self conscious, encourages her to deny the seriousness (and thus be receptive), and shows balls all at the same time. The best openers are spontanteous because she isn’t hearing the words, she’s feeling the fresh playful vibe.
0:39 – Mildly challenging by questioning the type of work she does. Shows social intelligence, hence her laugh. I haven’t yet told her she’s attractive, so this is an indirect-direct opener.
0:48 – Having showed alot and poured energy in, I’m now going to shut up a little and make her talk. The conversational responsibility is still on me but at this early stage I have to begin her process of progressive investment.
1:01 – We are now in the ploughing bridge (term borrowed from Yosha) in which I have to hang in there and show I’m not a pussy who ejects at the first silence but nor am I the nervy guy who chatters incessantly. So I throw another playful challenge to get her qualifying.
1:25 – She’s picking up her share of the conversation admirably so I can begin to reduce my energy and talk less. The initial high energy was necessary to carry the set and to show her the good vibe she can win back if she’s prepared to earn it but I’m not gonna just give it away. This is the sub-communication subtext to her qualification and investment.
1:40 – Notice the leg movement. Laughing and smiling is the obvious IOI but in daygame the leg movement tells you alot. Crossed legs are her way of settling into the conversation, kicking and stepping legs show playfulness, and when she crosses/uncrosses or shifts weight of her hips she is pussy-tingling.
1:50Hit and run DHV. I like to keep my DHVs very short – maybe a sentence or two. Here I’m doing a pre-selection routine but it’s actually relevant to the conversation and I am using it to qualify her as not being a whiner.
1:58 – Notice how close we are and how little I move. I’m holding strong eye contact too. She’s comfortable with that.
2:17 – Qualifying her on the posh school and playfully disagreeing when she objects until she backs down. On paper it would sound like I’m qualifying too hard but it’s playful, I’m smirking, and calibrating her reaction which is still smiley and playful.
2:21 – “kiss all the boys” puts some light sexualisation into it.
2:28 – The estrogen question is showing social intelligence about girls in groups while also personalising the conversation to her, giving her an open-ended question she can use to invest in the conversation and convey her personality. This is not a canned question – it’s the first time I used it. Most of the stuff I say is natural and just feeding off what she gives me and what I observe in this particular girl.
2:31 – You saw that leg cross, right?
2:37 – Nice situational excuse for the bounce and lead, also showing some protective qualities but I frame it as I’ll get run over so there’s light douche-baggery in this too.
2:58 – Pretttttttyyyyy!!!!

Beautiful in every way

3:09 – Compare her movement to my lack of reaction. I am listening non-reactively and in a judgemental mood so she can’t figure me out. In the rare cases guys that hit on her haven’t blown themselves out in the first thirty seconds, by now they would be jumping all over her energy and feeding it back to her. I’m just sucking it in like a black hole.
3:15 – I throw in a statement of interest. “I’m starting to like you”. She’s winning me over.
3:29 – See how she walks around me. That’s a shit test to see if I pander to her whims. I stay rock solid.
3:54 – Time for the instant date as the rain suddenly gets heavier. I self-referentially mock my earlier “rain is a challenge to be confronted” macho talk and then lead. Usually I wait about ten minutes but the weather forced my hand and the vibe was brilliant anyway.
4:00 – False time constraint and indicate the cafe is only around the corner. This avoids the “big scary date” frame.
4:08 – More light conversational flow and we move further into rapport. We are finding connections and common interests.
4:38 – What an adorable girl. She’s trying to make this interesting and adding her own value
4:45 – A light challenge / disapproval over her liking cats and she immediately qualifies to make me like her again.
5:22 – Another hit and run DHV, about living in Japan. It hits.
5:29 – I deliberately delay answering her question. I’m my own man, I don’t just dance to her tune. But I’m not being a dick about it cos we really have just reached the Starbucks. Good novels are about posing a question and then slowly revealling the answer. Good conversation is the same.

The rest of the video is rapport and I can’t be arsed to go into detail. She talked alot more than it looks from the edited snips but unfortunately there wasn’t much video with her face in the frame so I had to cut most of it.

Anyways, this is how my daygame looks these days.


  1. are you going to see her again?

  2. In the coffee shop, it looks like she’s stifling yawns and allowing her eyes to wander when she thinks you won’t notice. I’m a big fan of a lot of what you’ve done here, but are you sure she did any of the talking?

  3. i wasn’t gaming at this time last year so its good to know i can use the bad weather as a tool. i don’t want to be a downer, the pick up is nice and there is a lot to learn from it but its missing a bit of sexual intent imho witch is what you are best at krauser.( its probabbly because you get to much pussy man=))) i just cant help wonder “yes yes, i know but how do i fuck her?” she is a cool chick so u can take it slow go for more of a ltr

    • yeah for some reason i feel really bad for saying that, i guess i was getting bored with the initial interactions of pickup because in doesn’t seam that hard and being perfect isn’t obligatory that i forgot how important first impressions are. whats probably going to happen next is taking her to a club or smth and banking on that 1st impression really dile it up. i guess i’d much rather take her on a solo date then home or smth then go out in a club where i’m not confortable

  4. krauser,

    Much respect to your incredible game, but her face (without make up) is not a 9 by any stretch of the imagination. She looks like she has a tight body, but IMHO (and I like Asian women in general) her face is 5-6 at best (based on video starting at 7:11). Whether that has anything to do with the result, I don’t know.

    • agreed, shes not a 9, but I don’t think shes a 5-6 either. I’d say a solid 7. 9 is really pushing it.

      [5 = if you’re forced, you would. 6 = if it was easy, you would, but you’d feel shame. 7 = no pride, no shame, could date. 8 = your reputation proceeds you, you feel pride showing her off. 9 = every man is jealous. 10 = nobody even believes you are banging her. Thinking about it now and having seen her in person, I put her at an 8. Doesn’t mean everyone else has to. K.]

  5. krauser, whats your obsession with asians?
    they are flat everywhere like airport runway… no breasts… no asses….etc.. kinda like TEENAGE BOYS.
    thats a great way to full fill your dreams… without society judging you.

  6. I am at work so haven’t seen the whole video yet, but I can’t believe the tepid comments so far.

    For as long as I can remember, my *dream* has been to be able to approach girls on the street, chat them up, get them to fall for my charm, and then fuck them. Especially when I was living in Manhattan, I would see the most amazing girls on the street. It would just kill me.

    And so when I see a video like this one, I get really inspired. Krauser, you kick ass. I really appreciate you posting this and giving the analysis, it is incredibly helpful.

    It seems like you guys in England are killing us Americans when it comes to day game, day game video — with audio — and day game breakdown. I remember I came across your site when Roissy linked to your workshop with Yad post. Damn. I am not seeing anything like this happening in New York or LA.

    And I just started checking out your Field Reports just now. Wow.

    Long story short, I am thinking of moving you up to my #1 spot on blogs to read. Past Roissy. Past Roosh – who is deteriorating daily. Past everybody.

    Day game is where it is at for me, especially.

    If only I lived in Europe. With all those cool, thin, intelligent, international girls.

    Great stuff, bro. Great stuff.

  7. ^ what he said. plus the fact that krauser’s an average-to-ugly looking bloke scoring hotties lends inspiration. and he has the video to back it.

    game on, sir.

  8. Rivelino, you’re absolutely correct. krauser is the man with the plan. I don’t understand why no one in the US has been willing to do what krauser does, with audio & Video. Makes you sort of wonder about the veracity of field reports. I think krauser’s post on that black girl with the fake boobs was one of the most epic FR’s I’ve ever read. Definitely a role model.

  9. Good to see you guys agreeing with me. I just discovered Krauser’s blog and he is blowing me away. Audio, video, detailed analysis and breakdowns of what worked and what didn’t work — wtf, this guy is the man.

    Roissy used to be my first internet stop. Then Roosh.

    Now I am coming here first. I have a lot to learn.

  10. You like them asians. 😉

  11. fucking retarded. she wasnt even hot

  12. This post belongs in the Game Hall of Fame. My only complaint is the time stamp on it.

    Also, Asian girls have the smoothest legs. I almost forgot about that.

  13. Also Krauser is hardly some troll. He’s not terrible looking.

  14. Sounds so natural, smooth, just like you’re having an ordinary conversation, fascinating, fascinating. I don’t think she’s a 9 though, although it’s hard to tell from a poor quality video. I’d say she’s only a 7 face-wise. I’m a bit surprised to hear that you’re in you’re mid-thirties: do you have any problems with this age gap? Generally the predominant dating market is considered to be those aged 18-36. Do you think there is some kind of age limit for a guy for pick-up, 40, 50 …where? (how old is too old?)

  15. “What one man can do, another man can do.”

    Krauser, can you share your filming techniques with us. I really want to at least start audio taping my conversations. Initially not to share, because I will suck, but to listen to them later myself, to evaluate and analyze my performance.

  16. Great stuff.

    The mike must be on your but the camera is spy type job on your confederate. But the mike is synchronizing with the video. Is it wireless. Well maybe the synchronizing isn’t that close. Hard to tell.

  18. Krauser is the real deal, he may be the best blogger online
    One video shows more value then a hundred articles written eloquently by the best writer


  19. Reading your blog and watching these videos really inspires me man.

  20. What’s with all these foreigner pickups? How about picking up an 100% English girl?

    • Have you ever met a 100% English girl? That’s like saying “what’s with all these gourmet meals? How about eating a 100% greasy kebab?”

      • Yeah, I’ve heard the legends; the horror, the pain 🙂
        I was hoping to see a native, because foreigners have the element of novelty which might give you a head start (which I surely don’t have). Not that the rest of the stuff wasn’t your merit.
        As for the kebab, I actually quite like it, although not the one made from lamb, but the one made from chicken.

      • Button Nose and ManEater are 100% English.

  21. 4:08 “I feel like a wet dog”

    I fucking love this. Its an utterly inane and even crass thing to say. Its a similar statement/observation to “wow its sunny outside”, they are both stupid and obvious statements, the only difference here is that its personalized and funny. It shows that you are playful. Here is a man who enjoys life, shrugs off and teases life’s adversities.

    I liked this particularly because it is poignantly distinctive from what a shelled, introverted man would say. The statement is an observation interlaced with fun and playful undertones.

  22. I think “cocky funny” should be redubbed “playfully defiant”, at least to me it seems to describe the style that works best (and the style you show here).

  23. incredible breakdown of the events, from the leg movements showing sexual tension to push and pull techniques. im very impressed.

  24. 2 questions:

    1) Does this work on English girls? (I am thinking even if you aren’t attracted to them maybe it would be interested to video tape some trial runs?) [Yes. K]

    2) Did you pound? [In this case, no. I fucked up the date.]

    Thanks for the video!
