Why do cities and venues grow stale? It gets harder to meet new women as you settle into a place because of changes in how you approach them.
In the comment section of my article on beating learned helplessness, a reader writes:
“While I have long ago achieved general abundance with women in my country, the women I really want seem still elusive. I breath action in and out, I take risks like no one in my circle, I truly believe it is my responsibility to materialise my goals, and yet my dream women seem to remain out of reach.
To do something about it, I traveled abroad to Poland last week (I will write a detailed FR in the forum with my conclusions).
With only 12 approaches in 3 days, I almost had sex with a 19-year old model-type brunette whom I approached under broad daylight in a shopping mall. The girl was extremely close to my dream girl.
Why do you think I didn’t get that close to my goals in my own city, but went so close with only 3 days abroad, in Eastern Europe? Is it some kind of placebo effect or are there real obstacles, in your opinion? If the obstacles are real, how can I overcome them?”
His comment called to mind a phenomenon I’ve often noticed, and seen in other men I know as well: that after a while, places like cities and venues turn stale.
Stale as hunting grounds for new mates. Stale as places to meet girls.
You’ve doubtless seen this yourself. That new bar you discovered that you were excited to go to... But now, after months or years of going there, the excitement has worn off and it’s just some joint.
Or that new city you got to, that was so fresh and full of beautiful women and new conquests when you arrived. Now it seems like the women just keep getting fatter, older, and uglier, and all the hot girls have gone. I call this ‘old city blinders’.
The good news is, if you’ve noticed this, you’re not the only one it happens to. It’s common.
And the better news is, there’s a way around it. For the most part, anyway.
