Of my 100 approaches, probably 70 were “closeable” – single women of reasonable age and SMV who I might want to see again. The rest were flirty waitresses, clerks in airports I’d never see again, saleswomen at mall kiosks (got one of them to massage my hands for free), and a demure middle-aged Chinese wife I approached while she was carrying a bottle of Martinelli’s back to her table at a dive bar. Of those 70 approaches, I got seven numbers and a business card, four of which I saw at least once more. 10% close rate, 50% Day-2 rate from closes.If one considers that markets consider the expected response rate to mass marketing offers to be around 2 percent, Badger's positive response rate of 8 to 11.4 percent, depending upon how you want to regard it, is considerably better than the pure shotgun approach.
It's also useful information for single guys to have. Badger, by his own admission, isn't a master of Game and he comments that he improved considerably after his first 50 approaches. So, around 10 percent is probably a reasonable figure for the neophyte practitioner of Game whereas I would expect a man with very good Game to run between 33 and 50 percent. Of course, this hit percentage also an indicator of socio-sexual rank, as the ALPHAS of the world are often given contact information without requesting it.
