People enjoyed my previous post, albeit got some criticism due to my "looks" and arguments that although it was a solid and well written field report, some people disregarded it as I didn't "need" to game. This is really not true, while it may be true online and on apps like tinder (where looks are literally everything) in real life it matters whether you are confident, know how to carry yourself, be charismatic, because no matter how good looking you are, if you can't talk to women... you still aren't getting laid.
Now, on to today's field report.
First basic principle and premises; as you get good at game, the main limiting factor is going to be the girls friends. As you become an attractive man more often than not the girl will be attracted to you, however she will be out with her friends, maybe they arranged to meet up after so long, maybe they've having coffee, either way they have a claim on her.. she put time aside to go meet up with them and if the friends aren't having fun, or are feeling neglected or ignored as you're trying to pick her up they're going to put up a fight and cause a conflict, ergo, they're not going to let you pick her up. The girl has a long history with her friends and hardly any with you, so it's important to manage her friends, as when it comes down to the two the vast majority of the time she will go with her friends.
The different type of groups also call for different approaches, if it's a girl and one friend it's very hard to talk to her 1-1 without the friend feeling left out and feeling upset and neglected, if it's a girl in a large group then it's a lot easier to get that isolation as her friends can much more easily entertain themselves and have their own conversations without feeling left out. The step up from this is an even bigger group and it's quite possible that the members of the group might not even be relevant and might not even notice you talking to the girl and you won't have to worry about them at all, if she's with maybe 15 friends or people then she guaranteed will only be really friends with 2-3 and won't know the rest if at all.
How to approach the 3-4 groups
This is the most common size of group and the most common you will come across, and conveniently the easiest, and if you can master this then this is the real bread and butter of group pickup.
The idea is to engage everybody as much so they like you, and they don't mind you being there while you focus mainly on the one friend you really are attracted to. So ways to open can include "hey guys hows it going, you guys look like fun, oh what you drinking?" or "hey guys can I get your opinion on something" - now this technique is the common one, and good because you've approached and engaged the whole group, you're talking to them all and no one is feeling excluded and you're more likely to get a better reaction during the interaction as you're a positive social guy who's having fun.
The downside of this approach when you engage everybody it becomes difficult to engage in that 1-1 with the one you are interested in, lets say you engage the whole group and the fat girl, the one you wouldn't have sex with with even someone else's penis happens to engage strongly and seems to like you, now it's hard to switch on to one of the hotter girls in the group because they might feel sorry for their dietarily challenged friend or she might have such a strong claim to you that she will get angry and drag her friends away.
Now the way to combat this is when you're in that group, and you're engaging and you're having fun, you select the girl of your choice as early as possible, and you direct everything that you say that is sexual in nature, or that could be taken as sexual, or intimate, at the girl that you like.
You can be positive with everyone, even a little fun and flirty, you could even hug other girls, however; things such as "you and I are not gonna get along" or "I am intrigued by you" or "are you trying to get me drunk and take advantage of me?" must all be directed at the girl that you like. The idea being that anything that is an emotional spike whether positive or negative is directed at the girl of your choice, you can even look at the other girls as friends, or even guy friends, and treat them like your mates down the pub.
If the girl of your choice is a solid 9/10 then you might want to frame more in the negative, that way she isn't used to that and might actually start chasing you more, and her friends who are so used to the hot girl getting all the attention will react better to you giving them more attention as a group and are more likely to accept you and like you enough to give you time to get that 1-1 isolation to escalation.
Another alternative of this approach is to go in direct on the one girl while occasionally breaking off and engaging the group, you can start with the girl and move to the group, or start with the group and move to the girl. You can talk to the girl for a short while before moving back to the group and asking "so are these your friends?" or "oh hey so what do you guys think?" or "what do you guys do?" - so you can give pretty much all your attention, emotional spikes, and sexual advances on your one girl but you still have to acknowledge the rest of the group.
The bigger group
Now as mentioned previously, this can be a group where the girl doesn't really know everyone and more than likely only knows one or two, so it's important to find out how everyone knows each other and you can do this by "so how do you all know each other?" or "oh so you guys are really good friends?" or the like. This is important because you're not only acknowledging everyone but you're also finding out a lot of details on the relationship status of the girl you're into and what obstacles you're going to be dealing with, whether she's single or not, and who her main friends are. This means you now know what objections to expect, and what friends you can actually engage and which friends you can pretty much ignore.
So "how does everybody know each other" is a really important question to ask. What's also different about the larger groups is that you can often approach the girl directly as if she was on her own, reason being is that when you try and get to know the whole group it not only wastes time but by the time you've said "nice to meet you" for the 15th time, the girl has already gone or is engaged with another conversation.
This makes it far easier to approach in larger groups, and more likely that the friends won't are if you aren't engaging them that much if at all. I have gone up to many college girls in bars and visibly seen she came in with more than 10 different people but simply singled her out and treated her as a solo pull.
So the direct going in, then making adjustments, can be the best approach.
Bigger groups can be intimidating for most guys, they see it as such a large group and it scares them a lot, but the way to see it is to see it as a group of 1+. That's it. It's 1 girl plus.
If you remember these key points and stay on your game, then you won't have trouble getting that interaction that you want, you won't struggle to get the 1-1 isolation and use your escalation game to capitalise.
