It’s been over a month since I left my nine to five (unplugging post, link here). I thought it would be worthwhile recapping what it’s been like. The first thing I had to do was get a routine going. You can’t live in holiday mode forever. That’s something I’ll get onto a bit more later. … Continue reading Unplugging From The Nine to Five-trix: One Month On
Recently I met with a student of mine to catch up in Clapham. As we walked around and chatted I thought about whether it would be good for Daygame. Just to confirm: I’m talking about the high street (i.e. Clapham North Station to Clapham Common Station) and the common itself (for American readers, that’s another … Continue reading Clapham Daygame Review
Today I wanted to write a short post fleshing out a concept I mentioned in a recent Twitter thread on opening: https://twitter.com/thomascrownpua/status/1514170152153075713?s=20&t=wUFZxVBL7oMdTdguiu61mA I thought of this last year while winging with an American Daygamer. This seems to be a particular problem for Americans because their culture is much nicer - on the surface - than … Continue reading Teasing Up and Down (A Particularly American Problem)

What were your "aha" concepts/moments that moved your game from intermediate to advanced? or another way to put it, are there any commonalities you have noticed from coaching people at the intermediate/low intermediate that hold them back? I got that question Rob and there are two parts to my answer. The first is to do … Continue reading Q&A: What Were Your “Aha” Moments That Moved Your Game From Intermediate to Advanced?
Should I open direct or indirect? I’m going for coaching soon but wanted to get out my second post of the week. I decided I’d cut a corner and self-promote at the same time, so here’s a snippet from my upcoming book (details here). https://twitter.com/thomascrownpua/status/1514572275135266816?s=20&t=htLPYjqXqQxElhhW-APBew ***** I often get asked “should I go direct or … Continue reading Q&A: Should I Open Direct Or Indirect?
I’m sure we’ve all seen it: the multitudes of Daygamers who have slapped a leather jacket on top of their regular clothes. Well what if you needed to go much, much further to make it work? At a meta level, these guys probably only want to go so deep. Purple Pill is good enough for … Continue reading How to Develop Your Archetype
Today’s question comes from a discussion I was having with a Daygamer who goes by the name of Crazy Cock PUA (interesting name, indeed; his Twitter account here). I met Crazy in Kyiv last year and he seemed like a solid guy. I got him on for an episode of the upcoming London Daygame Podcast … Continue reading Q&A: Should Women Be Your Priority?
You may have mentioned this on your blog already, but how do I deal with approach lethargy? Sometimes I see girls that I like but can’t be bothered to approach. Even when I go out with a lot of enthusiasm that day, once I arrive at my daygame spots I feel drained and lethargic. I … Continue reading Q&A: How Do I Overcome Approach Lethargy?
Earlier this week I wrote a post about some quick and easy ways to improve your SMV (link here); each of those might give you a one or two - maybe even a five - percent increase. But what about the really important stuff? What about the hard stuff? (ooh err) Here are five ways … Continue reading SMV High Hanging Fruit
