In the quest to uncover any hidden patterns in my dating experiences that might help me streamline operations, I’ve done a back of the cocktail napkin calculation of the total number of girls I’ve dated that led to intimate relations, assorted by which days I first met those girls. I wanted to see if some days were better for meeting a slutty sexually responsive pool of available women.
Obviously, having a good memory is a factor in this analysis, but as a man I found it a lot easier to remember the exact day I met a girl I would eventually bang than it is to remember, for example, my niece’s name.
The following table shows the percentage of total intimacies by the day of the week that the successful pickup first began.
Day of First Meet Percent of Total Lays
Wednesday 0% (!)
I was a bit surprised by Wednesday’s goose egg. Maybe this is dumb coincidence or faulty memory, or hump day (behold irony) is a black hole of suckage for meeting girls. Is Wednesday Desperate Housewives night? I wouldn’t know.
Friday’s results were predictable as more single girls go out on that night than any other by my guess, providing a richer target environment, but Saturday put up a less than stellar showing. For all its pomp and circumstance as a great hookup night, Saturday actually blows. It’s a date night for one, and the hordes of desperate men who didn’t meet anyone Friday night give it the old college try again on Saturday, smothering the good vibes with their massive sausage invasion.
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday have been good considering their reputations as lonely barfly nights devoid of girls, but two things I’ve learned over the years are that any girl going out on an off-night is seriously looking to hook up (double hookup points if she braves it on a rainy weeknight) and logistics are favorable for you to take a girl home that night because weeknight venue patrons are more likely to be local. Also, it doesn’t hurt that the venues aren’t swarming with drunk Axe-wearing clones. Just be sure to avoid those bars that cater to the kickball flip cupper crowd.
For some reason, a lot of European women go out for drinks on Sundays and Mondays.
Thursday gets crowned Notch Night of the Week. It has the best mix of quality and quantity, with just enough of a scene to make things interesting, yet suitably laid back to appeal to the types of women who don’t parade around clubs holding their girlfriend’s hands like circus elephants. This is one of the great advantages to living in the city — rolling out on a Thursday night is not such a chore.
Conclusion: there is selective filtering in action based on day of the week. Quieter nights will have fewer opportunities, but the leads are stronger. Busier nights have more opportunities, but on average they are weaker. The best night is the one that strikes a balance between numbers and receptiveness.
Day game is limited to Saturday and Sunday, so unless you are unemployed and can spend all week trolling for other unemployed girls, it’s pointless to draw any lessons from the number of girls you have picked up during the daytime.
