Let's talk social media

19 yo here. if your reaction is "social media is only for logistics" or some dismissive attitude, please stop reading this post, you're probably too old to understand and would just go against it.

my question is how does TRP see picking up on social media. like there are women who I'll more than likely not meet in a setup, yet she's above 9 and I'd like to pick her up.

so it's either going through something like this or nothing at all. yes, I double thought about it, never going to meet each other.

and i think it's the same case if I bump into her profile, so we don't know each other. i don't agree with the idea of "never send friend requests", maybe that's the way she'll notice you.

Background info:

I bumped intro TRP a month ago and only these last days I dived into the philosophy. I love it and it brings out the man inside of me. I've been rated with at least 8.5, often 9-9.5-10 by girls who I judge are around 9 - I'm confident about my looks and personality. I'm often referred as boyfriend material and I'm not here to humble-brag, just trying to paint my portrait. Old me would have gone with dropping a message like "i think you're a person I'd like to meet how about coffee at X on monday". However, after reading TRP the whole day, I'm affected by intersecting to many don'ts so that it gets me to a point where it's not clear to me (through the TRP lens) what should be done.

So I'm here to ask TRP ambassadors - what is your opinion on social media and initiating a conversation there? The questions stands as TRP content is more prevalent to face-to-face interaction (and I totally understand why)

Even deeper background info:

I've noticed with myself that I'm not able to go out with women I'd start conversations with on social media because I can't motivate myself to do it. What I realised after reading TRP is that I indulged myself with less than 7-8 women. It's sad but it's the bitter truth. I acknowledged the fact that I unconciously thought I didn't deserve the best. Hence, I'm aiming to initiate 10 conversations and I'm confident I'll land at least one.

Reading between the lines it isn't working for you because you talk too much about nothing. Social media is at the very least 80% good pictures, time to get some friends and hobbies buddy.

Social media is at the very least 100% good pictures.

Fixed that for you.

Seriously OP. Get a DSLR and take badass pictures of you and your hobbies. Thats it.

Right Right.

The real reason you can't pull girls of social media is because you have no game.

You probably slide into their DMs and try to get them to see you asap and they curve you because they don't want to fuck a fuckboy.

Im not even being rude, but if you had the sauce you'd get results.

Besides why use social media, there are plenty of real drunk girls out there in clubs and bars and raves to get with on a weekly basis.

If you want you can even use tinder but don't waste your time with social media, especially if you don't know them.

There are probably literally 5+ guys a day trying to slide into their DMs.

Nailed it. If you aren't able to meet girls in life start building a social circle or going places to meet girls.

Use social media as a supplement.

"Hi, I'm OP and I would really like to hear everyone's opinion on social media as long as it's not different from mine. If you disagree with me, stop reading and don't comment"

I recognize that social media is super prevalent at that age. When I was in college Facebook was fucking huge.

However, no social media thing will ever be a replacement for going to a party and talking to a girl then either fucking her or asking her out.

It can be a supplement.

The primary reason I tell people to avoid it is that they use it as a crutch instead of actually going out and meeting women.

I would say don't pick up girls online unless you've met them in person. I'm about to be 18. Got most handsome in my class (fairly small school). And I'm pretty fit. From my experience of DMing girls on Instagram some will reply and some will even give me their number. But they've all been flakes. Prolly because they don't know me and aren't comfortable even after texting them a little to build familiarity. The only reason I do online sometime is because of living in a small town. Luckily I'm moving to Austin in August. You're prolly better off sticking to daygame in my opinion.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
