I’m trying various mask patterns ... plain blue mask, black mask, purple mask, Buddhist mask.

So far I didn’t see any difference.

Hi, I've been approaching a lot with me and the girl having masks on, regardless of what mask it is...

Most of the approaches I've done since i started daygame during the Corona virus restrictions about (about 200) were with masks

My opinion is that masks are completely not a problem. But I have almost zero touch experience so don't take my word for it.
Beginner here.

Perhaps at the point in time if u are trying to take her mask off. Do it successfully with one swift movement. Don't try and fail.

Girls are so in tune with facial expressions, that they can see what u r feeling based on the facial features that the mask does not cover. The area around the eyes reveals a lot. The dilation of eye pupils and eyelid movements reveal just about everything.

A girl can see that I'm smiling and make eye contact with me and then even I can notice that she under her mask is smiling from across the a traffic light street crossing when I direct complimented her. All with masks on. She can tell the diff between a friendly and sexy smile based on which eye is more wrinkled.

Just don't be afraid to touch in all other ways. That's my opinion.

Yes , but parks for example ppl are not wearing masks
that has nothing to do with the post... As i said in restaurants, supermarkets, casino and other venues, you have a window of opportunity to do cold approach mask to mask...

So you are just gaming as usual just with the mask, pre-mask corona, still corona with social distancing no mask was way easier, (i just kept my distance and game as usual, acknowledging social distancing... With the mask i notice some issues such as:

- projecting my voice
- being in my head
- not able to read micro expressions as well.

Not sure about microexpressions, usually I should be able to see in her other body language, but maybe there's something I'm missing out

Projecting voice sometimes I'm not aware that I'm not loud enough, sometimes maybe it's bullshit the girl pretending not to hear me, but I always raise my voice anyways if she can't hear, some slight difficulty that I don't worry too much about

Don't feel that mask makes me be in my head more, I go to the bathroom once in a while to wipe sweat on the inside of my mask and freshen up (I live in a hot country), I work from home so being out makes me feel great and happy in itself :)

Facepalm! DURING THE DAY IN SUPERMARKETS! or inside the venues that require mask to mask.....

answers have nothing to do with the post i wrote that in night venue were there were not mask requirement in another part of the city.

is like a dude ask me skills i am in a wheelchair how do i do dance floor?

me: oh just ditch the wheelchair and walk....


I will state the problem once again, what special tips and adjustments based on YOU GAMING IN THIS SITUATION, when you are in an environment were they required people with masks INSIDE, and you have a window of opportunity mask to mask, aka you have a mask and she has a mask on...

I am actually thinking today of just bringing it up to them as part of the opening...

ok if we are talking about me, I wear my mask on my neck like this

(which has plausible deniability that I am wearing a mask. Similar to how cops can tell you are drinking beer on the street (where it's illegal) but because you have a brown paper bag covering it, they do not say anything)

when you drink alcohol on the street, it matters very little which particular person or even how many of them, realize what you're doing; what matters more is how openly it's known. and this is where a thin brown bag can make all the difference. if you brazenly flaunt an open beer bottle, the police are likely to give you trouble. this is because when you drink openly, it's clear not only to the police that you're breaking the law but also to every passing citizen, a police officer who turns a blind eye to conspicuous public drinking is open to a lot more criticism from everyone involved, than an officer who ignores discreet public drinking. in this case, the brown paper bag doesn't fool the police officers themselves, but it provides them with just enough cover to avoid taking flak from their constituents.

wearing it this way eliminate these problems

I don't know about you guys but wearing masks I'm getting WAAAY more eye contact just in stores. If you are expressive in your facial expressions you can convey a warm smile pretty easily.

Actually makes it easier to say hello.

I've noticed women are craving conversation after being Sheltered in Place. They tend to share MORE personal details since we have this common experience.

I actually approached this girl in my store who I recognized with her mask on that I haven't seen in over two years from a place we used to volunteer at. She was with some guy I assume she was dating and initially she was confused when I tried talking to her and asking her if she was who she was. Then I took my mask off and she recognized my face and we had a little friendly chat nothing crazy. I wasn't trying to bag her since she was clearly with this tall guy and she wasn't really into me back then and we weren't that close. I do need to test out approaching girls in the day to get more feedback,but I feel like that was a good indicator to me how an approach might go with masks.
So I would say the biggest adjustment with the masks are projecting your voice and making sure she hears you well or if she doesn't hear you that well you could pull your mask down or to the side so she can hear you better as long as you keep your distance. Otherwise she might be a little uncomfortable if you're too close with your mask on.Also if you have nice facial features she may like she can see that too lol.

Getting IOIs all over the place, all the time. Every single time I go outside. Was out drinking with a buddy today and he noticed it too, every girl looking at me, lol.

I haven't been approaching the last month or so, but will start again this week. Masks do add another level of difficulty.

They're enforcing masks and social distancing where I'm at now. In the same boat as y'all. :(

Trying to look for a stylish mask since I think this will last a while. Another accessory. Maybe do some peacocking hahaha.

I will go out next weekend and see how approaches go with masks and distancing.

Nothing like starting a new game on hard mode, lol.
