This is a great article that mentions Dallas a few times, mostly in comparison to New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago, and Miami. The article refers to those cities as the Big 4 and I'll use that term throughout the rest of this post.
The article asserts that Dallas is more social circle heavy than the Big 4. That's probably true, but as I have mentioned earlier in the thread, I don't consider Dallas to be social circle heavy. There are too many transplants in Dallas for it to be social circle heavy. The sheer number of adult transplants to Dallas means that there is some amount of openness to meeting new people. In the context of the mating environment, most of the transplants are attracted to using swipe apps when needing to date. Swipe apps do well in Dallas because of the weak social circles. There are some good social circles in Dallas but it is difficult to get into them. Most adults who transplant to Dallas in the 20s or 30s won't be getting into one of these social circles or they'll be at the fringes of them. These transplanted adults might meet people in some good, established social circles as co-workers, but those won't be their good friends.
There are a few primarily outdoor patio bars in Dallas that are social circle heavy. The seating arrangements there are not conducive at all to approaching. These patios mainly have long tables for seating or lawn chairs arranged in circles. Neither seating arrangement leads to people meeting new people. While these patio bars can be fun places to go with male friends, especially on a 70-80 degree day in the spring or fall, they won't be productive in terms of arranging dates. People need to be standing and walking to start new interactions.
The article mentions that few PUA bootcamps are run in Dallas. That's true and I'm fine with that. PUA bootcamps tend to go to Austin more than Dallas. PUA bootcamps tend to ruin gaming environments in cities anyway as many of the PUA bootcamp attendees are socially awkward guys who turn off a lot of women.
As I mentioned in the first post, daygame is neutral here. It's not frowned upon here to run daygame. Women aren't exactly closed off in Dallas but they aren't exactly welcoming either. Also, there are few places in Dallas with sufficient foot traffic for running daygame outdoors. There are 1-2 main paths, and the better of those two is already daygame saturated. I have daygamed outdoors in both of those areas and most daygaming sessions there aren't that fruitful. That's sort of the nature of outdoor daygame. There's also nothing unique about approaching in bookstores, malls, or grocery stores here.
