Just in general nowadays people are always preoccupied and segregated, especially while out during the day. Women always have their phones out or are purposely avoiding eye contact or stopping. There always seems to be some barrier unless it's strictly a social event, and even then women are just sectioned off with whatever group she arrived with most times.
This is accurate.
This is exactly what I've heard...either it's a sausage fest full of mostly men with just a couple of women being hounded, or the women there are meh. In most regards, it doesn't seem like decent women take those kinds of events seriously.
Also accurate. Meetup is complete shiit. Very few women above a 6 will ever attend a Meetup event. Additionally women who are in the 5.5-6.5 range get swarmed at Meetup events, often by Indian spam approachers in larger cities.
The last singles event I attended had more women than men but the female quality was lacking. Only one woman above a 6 in looks, and she was a 6.5-7. That event was mostly 4.5s-6s in looks. One woman who was a 6 was a boring AF accountant. Definitely a weak talent pool for women. I overheard some other men trying to run game and they were pathetic conversationalists. I was peacocked, looked awesome, talked and carried myself differently. I got one number and a date agreement, and she flaked on it.
Most singles events draw a weak talent pool. Good looking women don't take them seriously. And often the ratios stink at them.
And the later it gets, the more the quality of women drops. Not to mention all the women that go to bars just for affirmation and to bolster their ego with no real desire to meet anyone.
Your 2nd sentence is the #1 problem with night game.
My city has a 2 AM closing time. One of my male friends, when he was single, had a decent night game system. He would drink in his apartment and arrive at the bars at midnight. From midnight - 2 AM, he would spam approach until he found a taker. He could get away with spam approaching with a weak opener because he is 6'4", White, former college athlete in a country club sport, and had a white collar job post athletic career. That's a profile that plays well with yuppie White women with bachelor's degrees +. He got a bunch of one night stands and some short term casual sex doing that until he got into a long term relationship with a questionable woman and put a ring on it.
This is a triple digit notch count guy who ran that game. He never did daygame and only dabbled in online game.
I'd imagine if done properly, day approaches reap the best rewards, but there are SO many reasons that make this type of approach painstakingly difficult for such a small window of opportunity each one is. You have to be so on-point, exemplary, and lucky for it to ever actually go well.
This has been my experience with daygame. Daygame has the highest barriers to entry, which is why most men won't do it. Most men don't have the ability to approach in a non-bar, non-event context while sober.
