Choose Your Game Funnel

Funnels come in different sizes. Some have wide necks and others have narrow necks, affecting the rate in which you pour liquid into them. If you go down to the extreme end of funnel narrowness, you have a sand timer, where only a few grain’s width of sand can safely pass through.

You also choose a funnel when it comes to game. A wide neck means you let many prospects pass through by using a light screening process. A narrow neck means you exclude a lot of girls from your efforts after they fail to pass one of your tests or character standards. Let’s take a look at two hypothetical examples that took place over a three-month period:

The man with the wide funnel got more bangs, but he had to work harder because he didn’t screen as heavily when it came to approaching and dating. The man with the narrow funnel worked less, but also got less bangs. To determine which strategy is better for you, consider these two factors:

1. Level of game. Beginners should be using a wide funnel, which means chasing generally poor prospects in order to gather enough knowledge about women that creates a lasting understanding of seduction. The beginner will have to endure flakes, abuse, and many nights of blue balls to know what it takes to minimize those very occurrences in the future.

2. Level of energy. Some guys simply have a lot of energy that must be released in the form of social interaction. It’s hard for them to stay still. For them it would be more natural to have a wide funnel because doing so would have little cost compared to an introvert who prefers to avoid being social.

As time goes on in your game journey, it’s inevitable for your funnel to get narrower, because your mind will prevent you from entertaining situations that it knows has a low probability of success, a phenomenon that can only happen from experience. While decreasing your funnel size may seem like a decline, since it will likely lower the quantity of your success, it’s actually necessary to prevent burnout. Mindlessly repeating the same task to get similar results, especially if it’s not a necessity, is something that you will not be able to sustain indefinitely. Use a wide funnel for intense learning and then slowly narrow it as your skill level increases.

Feel free to delete this comment, but should be “fewer bangs” not “less bangs.” Sorry for being grammar police–as I said, feel free to delete this comment.

Average (Scale 6.5-8.5, Ages 18-26):
15 approaches
7 dates
5 bangs

But then again, when you are in your late forties, girls are easier (if you look better than in your late twenties and way more interesting as is the case here that is)

Makes perfect sense. I grossly underestimated how many girls you have to hit on in order to get a bang or even a date. Just keep on trucking along though.

I encourage large funnels, multiple funnels, “baited” funnels, “sticky” funnels, “self-closing” funnels, and “ethnically themed funnels.

I actually don’t want funnels, I want “blackholes”.

Keep expanding your funnel(s).

I have to screen alot for girls with a lifestyle and attitude that compliments mine.

It’s a numbers game.

The wide funnel looks like a larger version of a penis compared to the narrow, therefore wide is the best choice. No homo.

“Some guys simply have a lot of energy that must be released in the form of social interaction. It’s hard for them to stay still. For them it would be more natural to have a wide funnel because doing so would have little cost compared to an introvert who prefers to avoid being social”.

That sounds like “fight or flight” adrenaline energy to me. What about someone who has developed a more parasympathtic energy; controlled, stronger but more deeply vitalised as he isn’t burnt out from the huge amount of cortisol and possible adrenal fatigue the excess energy guy has?

Seeing as most guys can never excel at game, only the wide funnel approach works.

150 years ago I was running the area with a strange Hebraic lad named Hooduleedoo. I had never seen a woman’s private’s beyond bush. He, wearing his much sweated in Sepultura shirt, both of us on the husky side, must have repulsed everyone not listening when he asked me this.
“Which do you like better, dangling or tight vagina?”

To this day very day, I will not drink hookah water.

???????? Super important question?????????
What’s a good US city where a man can nut up and do large numbers of approaches a day? I want to relocate and need a city with good logistics (ie apartment close to where all the sea of bitchs swim).

And I hate DC and most of the east coast and south. Would prefer West coast.

The only way to have the best of both worlds, of a narrow funnel yet a larger bang count, is for a man to have some sort of niche where he can dominate.

“[Roosh: I think this guy should crawl out of his laboratory and go outside to talk to women.]”

– a tad presumptuous there Roosh.

I should have elaborated – I’ve found lately that when I find the flight or fight response overwhelming me I employ nasal breathing techniques to calm myself and become more focused.

I’m finding that solely using nasal breathing techniques while weight training is making for a much richer and enjoyable experience – and I want to employ it in all aspects of my life.

It’s good to get that rush of excitement but it’s also good to develop a skill so that the adrenaline rush doesn’t overwhelm you.

PS I think my post must have reminded you of your working days in the Laboratory!

The funnel narrowing I have observed in myself already is that I can’t continue to repeat the same date ideas when they havent worked perviously when run on multiple girls in the past. I love hiking and have caught interest in say at least 5 girls on the routine of taking a day trip out of the city to bushwalk. Nice day walking each time but waste of time seriously for escalation. It is now excluded from my funnel / routine

On an unrelated note, I just picked up a copy of “Survival of the Prettiest” which I think would be a good book to review following Scruton’s “Beauty.”

It gives countless examples of how beauty can be objectively determined across completely different cultures and age groups with no outside influence. The female standards for beauty remain the same.

@10 “Seeing as most guys can never excel at game, only the wide funnel approach works.”

The real trick is to find the right niches, the widest funnel in the world won’t render results if you are hitting the wrong places!

Agreed … Unless you are in USA or another feminazi country approaching 80 girls to get only 3 bangs is just plain crazy!!
