A common pattern throughout my life has been the three-year cycle. Pretty much any activity or hobby that takes my interest will burn brightly for something like three years and then I tire of it and move on. University, banking, living in Japan, Brazilian Ju Jitsu, economics, playing in a band…. they all peaked around the second year and by the end of the third I was thoroughly bored, casting around for the next adventure.
So it is with pick up
I am rapidly approaching the third anniversary of my first ever cold approach. Regular readers will have noted how enthusiastically I threw myself into the pick up lifestyle and also recently how I’ve slowed down alot. I’ve probably done about 10 daygame approaches in 2012. Tops. My pick up identity tires me. It no longer takes me in the direction I wish to go. I’ve seen enough people trapped in the community long after they should’ve left.
This is not to deny Game. It works. I’ve met, befriended, and banged women far better and far more often than I could’ve hoped to without Game. But while I will continue to study, refine and use Game I will be moving in new directions. What is Hell? It is running around like a blue-arsed fly street-stopping 30 girls every weekend for ten years. Fun for a while (even necessary) but ultimately tiring.
For six months I’ve been casting around for the next step. How do I continue to learn and build on the Game I’ve acquired these past three years yet still keep it fresh and exciting for myself? I realised that having already made significant progress with the technical side of in-set game, and having sorted most of my inner game, the next step is to spread my wings and live the lifestyle I most enjoy.
Thus I introduce you to my new blog – Count Cervantes.
I won’t pre-frame it any further. Check out a few posts and see what you think. Krauser will continue as normal with it’s usual focus on pickup, infields and game theory. I’ve got no plans to wind it down. However the forward thrust to my life will be on Count Cervantes. That’s where my passion now lies.
