Short Term Vs Long Term Game
In doing my own reading, study, and application/discovery in my own life, I've come to what I believe to be the best explanation(from a scientific stand point) to distinguish between these two concepts. I do need to give credit to the now defunct "The Social Art Blog" as well as other pick up artists’ who have contributed to this explanation. Pay attention here fellas because this explanation is going to give you a great frame of reference for attraction in women. Read, re-read, and fully understand this as through experience with women you will begin to see these Elements of Attraction play out and you will begin to see your strong points as well as your weaknesses.
For starters, why do I make such a big deal of this word attraction? Well it's as simple as this; without attraction she won't sleep with you. Done and done. With that said it would make sense that the skill set involved with creating attraction would be one of the first things we would learn as men. Right!? Unfortunately it’s not and we have been relegated to learn it on our own until recent years in which the seduction community has become more mainstream. With that said, let’s get into the elements of Short Term Game or Sex Based Attraction.
These elements are:
Contrary to popular belief, ALL of these elements CAN be worked on. It is true that some of us are blessed better looking than others, but we are ALL blessed with DIFFERENT TYPES of looks. It’s important for us as men to play to our looks and do all that we can to maximize through our style of dress, hair(or shaved head if you are balding), working out, eating well, etc. to maximize our identity. Let me equate this to acting. You’d never see Steve Buschemi play Hansel in Zoolander but he plays a mean lead role in Boardwalk Empire! Steve Buschemi is a man who clearly got the memo and understood early on the types of roles he would fit best in. So do yourself a favor and find your role! As for the final four; Body Language, Sexual Charisma, Kino Escalation(using touch from first initial interaction with a woman all the way to sex), and personality/flirting these can also ALL be learned and internalized. Guys who have mastered all of these elements are the guys that the pick up community calls “naturals.” It’s also interesting to note that these are often times the guys who because they got these concepts early on, fail to see value in career advancement or getting good grades in school. Often it isn’t until they hit a point where they get bored with flings with women and want to meet a high quality woman that they realize the necessity in building their own career(Yes I realize I’m making a big generalization here and it is not always true). What a perfect segue into Long Term Game or Survival Based Attraction.
The elements of Long Term Game or Survival Based Attraction are:
It’s a very alpha definition but it is also a VERY GOOD breakdown on long term attraction. All four elements convey long term potential. Great leaders control men. Women like that. Female pre-selection also can be called social credibility(social proof in the PUA community). Quite simply, you are with women meaning you are already liked by women(or have paid for them…Sorry, I lived in Miami and LA long enough to become jaded). Women like this. Fame/Status(ie…actors, rockstars, certain businessmen, etc). Pretty certain you’d agree that women also like this. And finally Assets/Wealth. A man who has money and stuff. Guess what, women like this.
The goal with Utopia Life is to develop the complete man. The man who knows, understands, and can execute short term pickup and use them in a relationship to maintain strong sexual attraction and is developing or has developed their long term potential. The goal is to avoid being the poor guy who hits the age of 40 and realizes all he has accrued is a bedpost full of notches and a few diseases he could have done without and conversely being the rich guy who just bought a Lamborghini and thinks it comes standard with tight game.
