There Are Two Ways To Play The Game

Either you can make deposits or make withdrawals.

You’re making deposits when it’s hard going and you’re doing approaches in new or tough environments. You’re leaning new things but making many mistakes. You’re working hard. You’re getting a return on investment that is less than what you’re putting in. Freebies are rare and accidental. But every Monday morning you go to the bank and jam everything you’ve earned into the vaults.

You’re making withdrawals when it’s easy. You’re not learning anything new. You’re not working hard. You’re getting softer. You’re doing what you already know to get results. You’re cashing out on your savings to have a smooth ride today.

For most of the eleven years I’ve played the game, I made deposits. I made deposits in the United States, in Colombia, in Brazil, and definitely in Argentina. Then I got to Scandinavia, where I noticed my pockets were much lighter every Monday I went to the bank. By the time I got to Poland, I no longer made deposits. I was cashing out large sums. I cashed out everything I had learned in the past ten years to make the pussy rain. It led to the most sexually enjoyable seven months of my life, a time I will never forget.

When I left Poland for the Baltics, I went to make another withdrawal at the bank but the teller said that there were insufficient funds in my account. Did I blow years of savings in just seven months? I went to another branch and they confirmed that my balance was zero. I couldn’t believe I was broke. For a second I thought I could keep making withdrawals forever, that I saved enough money to live fat and large until I died. I didn’t realize that ten years of savings can easily be wiped out in a few months of hard spending. I had nothing left.

I started to make deposits again in Latvia, working as hard as I ever worked. In Estonia I continued saving, though at a slower pace. In Lithuania I stepped up and saved some more. Then I got to Industrial Shithole, and let me tell you that I’ve never saved so much in my life. I’m earning so much that I’m making daily deposits. I’m studying the language. I’m building a social circle. I do approaches where there is seemingly no hope of success. The last time I worked this hard was when I was 22, when I had no money in the bank.

Either you’re making deposits, earning every lay with your blood and sweat, or you’re making withdrawals. Right now I’m making deposits. I can’t tell you when I can start withdrawing again. I don’t know if it’s going to be here or in another country, but I know that it will come, and it will be the best time of my life.

I think game overall is like this. From the beginners to the advanced guys, every body has to deal with hot streaks and cold streaks. In the end, you just gotta keep hustlin’

Getting into a full blown relationships is a great way to deplete your savings as well. After a stint that last a few months I realized that I almost had to start all over again. Your game will atrophy if you don’t regular work on it.

Finally landed a job and opened a bank account. You’re making deposits? I have just earned the right to make deposits. Withdrawals are far away for me now. But something tells me I’ma enjoy making the deposits.

Interesting.

Do you think you would have ran out of deposits had you remained in Poland?

[Roosh: Yes. I was never able to full regain the success I had in my first month there. I ran out of gas and mojo.]

Excellent post.

I’m currently making deposits too.

I feel the time of withdrawals will come in a year or two.

I just hope Poland is the same then.

I’m doing the same thing right now. Three weeks ago i had no leads. Now i have five solid leads. I think you need to get to about 20 leads to get pussy on demand. My bank acct is growing smaller by the day, but i’m just a month or two from the mass text exodus and the pussy on demand feature that comes with hard work. Then i’ll bang out all those leads and work them dry, then i’ll have to rebuild the empire.

Great analogy though.

Good analogy.

Although, sometimes you just have to rob the bank.

Why?

“Because that’s were the money is.”

Re: Roosh

I’m a fan for sure, you are the latest PUA I have discovered and bookmarked. I’m really interest about your success here in Lithuania and it would be fantastic if you review the Baltic states in one of your articles.

* Was your game any different? How tight it was?
* Do you think Lithuanian girls are more SWPL then Russians and Polish?
* What are the names of places you have been to and executed your game?
* Did you have a wing-man while staying there in Lithuania?
* How much time did you spend here and what’s your total score?

Funny enough, I live in the Vilnius old town and I was about to propose hosting you since I saw somewhere on this website you are planning to come 🙂

I really like your analogy Roosh. It’s April and the semester is almost over. I haven’t made any withdrawals at all (meaning, no sex), but I’ve done a good share of deposits though, and come summer that’s all I plan on doing.

I think that working out and working on your approaches hard enough pay off when the spring and especially summer comes. As a result you come off as an athletic type, confident enough to project strength and talkative enough to spark that initial important interest from their side. But I tell myself to never forget mystery`s negs. They work wonders.
That alone, when overlooked, is enough to never reach your potential.

Hi Roosh, great post as always I agree then with the guy Who said that after a relationship you gotta start from the beginning once again… I’m feeling it right now and it’s a real shit. Little advice to everyone: even if you’re engaged keep playing and flirting! Unfortunately that’s not like riding a bike! Greetings from Switzerland
