Short answer - yes it's still do-able

I'm still able to open sets and go on a few dates (though most of my dates are from online). I'm sure others have more pertinent experiences here though.

It's cool you've been able to open sets despite the massive bullshit going on. Nice one. What kind of shit do you say? Is it just the usual or do you find you've needed to be different because of the world being weird?

Since the start of the plague I don't think I've done much, if any, proper face to face approaches where I'm genuinely hitting on the girl. Definitely haven't done any YAD STOPS.

Any new girls I've been having sex with since the beginning of the plague were from online, both starting on Tinder, in fact one of them I only fucked the once and despite meeting again for drinks it was as "friends" because she's more relationship oriented (although I sure would have fucked). There's another two girls who are/were from before the plague but were still willing to meet for sex despite the plague (kinda fell in love with one of the bitches too).

Been thinking about what it's gunna be like in pubs and clubs if/when we get back to "normal"... It's gunna be all "don't look people in the eye who aren't in your bubble" and all that dumb shit. Still interested to attend and see for myself, though.

Dan,

Until recently (as in, around Christmas) I was relying mostly on direct openers. However as with recent rules it's now less practical to travel far (like, London in my case) regularly. I've been spamming my locality somewhat, so I'm rather reluctant to just use the same canned opener and thus re-open the same people several times. Thus, I've had to get creative and more indirect, unless I find the girl genuinely attractive, or if I'm in a great mood. Given that there are less people around anyway (let alone eligible ladies), I just talk to various folk here and there to maintain the vibe. Dates are harder to get due to lockdowns, but are still possible.

I attempted the odd Pub or two back when they were still open last Summer, but usually got asked to knock it off by staff after talking with another table for a few minutes, set of girls or not. Wasn't really worth the effort TBH, so sticking to outdoors.

Been a fair bit harder since lockdown began some really good interactions and moments with people who are desperate to meet face to face. Alot of flakes though, due to people's vibe being low, dislike for me, also a lot of people leaving London, finishing masters degrees and leaving early etc. Was bummed at the beginning of lockdown I was dating a British Airways flight attendant who was based in Shanghai and the lockdown basically destroyed that lead had a couple of intimate relationships but nothing near to the standard of 2017/2018- less women , less people up for meeting and less interesting dates all in all (having to sit outside in the cold is a bit of a nightmare)

All in all you gotta keep going, use it as an opportunity to go to different parts of London and be positive and proactive .

Yup, I've had to use rather descriptive/pictorial language recently to sell dates to girls, especially via phone calls. All of my dates so far are from online, as there are simply less women (well, anyone really) out to talk with.

The last date I had actually got questioned by police for waiting at a train station, so you also have to be clever about where you meet

Honestly Id stick with supermarkets - whole foods , Waitrose , fortnum and mason are the three with the most footfall. Was in Waitrose Canary Wharf last Saturday and it was packed- people will always need to buy goods

You should come my way then; loads of folk are still outside, and very little authority presence. Granted that supermarkets are a good idea, I'm crap with mask approaches. I avoid even opening people outside if they're wearing a mask; I simply cannot understand what they're saying and it feels awkward.

Some people appreciate it a lot , just the human contact. Granted you get bitter rejections but the quantity of footflow makes the approach worth it. Its better trying than not. If maam approaching is awkward for you you should do it till it becomes the norm. Its good to do what feels uncomfortable especially in this plandemic where supermarkets are the only place attracting decent footfall

Yeah I'd agree with u there, but I'm not gaming in a large city, so there's a good chance that I see the same folks over and over. I'm also usually doing this on my lunch break and there's simply more to do outside where I am than to look around supermarkets. I suppose if I was gaming somewhere else I'd reconsider tho.
