I was in Budapest for 8 nights recently and it was somewhat of a mixed bag…
It was a Sunday and I had just endured a horribly hungover 8 hour bus ride from Belgrade (I will do another post on that soon). However, when I stepped off the bus I was raring to go, I had the new city excitement.
I met up with the Cheshire Cat, dropped my stuff at the apartment, showered and went out for the maiden voyage at around 4pm. We caught up over some very expensive steak on Vaci street. As we sat there I saw a cute brunette glide by. I thought, no time like the present so I got up and opened her. She blew me out with a huge eye roll and a “NO THANKS!”. I wished her a nice day and went back to my table with my tail between my legs. It was a sign of things to come.
At the end of the first day, CC and I sat having a beer near our apartment. It was around 9pm and I was happy to have an early night. Then we both saw a tall girl dressed all in black walk by us with huge tits that were hanging out the side of her leotard like top – she was displaying lots of side boob and everyone was staring at her as she passed. I let her go. 10 minutes later, she walked by us again, this time in the other direction. I got a good look at her from the front and I got an instant boner. I got up, made chase and opened her down a dark street. She hooked instantly telling me how she was a historian and how she liked to show people around the city. She asked me if I’d like to go up to the castle with her and she would explain the history of the city. I agreed. She went home to freshen up, I returned to CC and finished my beer. 10 minutes later she returned. I thought the SDL was on, but it turned out to be a huge false positive. We walked around the castle grounds, I tried to kiss her multiple times and she was having none of it. I tried to bounce her to a bar, she was having none of it. At around midnight we went our separate ways and she did not respond to messages afterwards and I never saw her again. Whore.
The next three days were equally frustrating. I was averaging 15 sets a day mostly getting blow-outs and no hook-points, even off the girls I closed. The only girls that did hook had boyfriends. I honestly thought the city was trolling me. There was a steep drop in quality compared to Belgrade so getting bad responses from sub-par girls didn’t help my vibe much. But on the Wednesday afternoon things took an upswing, there were more girls on the street and the vibe in the city had changed. I started getting sticky leads and I began to relax, doing less, more calibrated sets. I got laid on the Thursday and then again on the Saturday. I liked the city all of a sudden.
Here are the numbers;
|Sets||Number||FB/Insta||Flake||Date Flake||idate||D1||D2||D3||D4||Near Miss||Lays|
None of the girls flaked, they all sent me responses, most of them were weak and a lot complained of being busy with exams. Interestingly, not one of the girls I opened had whatsapp, they all insisted on Instagram. This didn’t turn out to be a bad thing, if you have a good profile instagram can act as a powerful DHV.
I instagram closed just over 1 in every 3 sets, I only got 3 of these girls out on dates, thats 1 for every 5 closes and I banged two of them, that’s 1 notch for every 1.5 dates, or 1 notch per every 24 opens.
I didn’t get many, if any IOI’s in Budapest. I found that there wasn’t really any maybe girls for me, they were either no’s or yes’s. The two girls I banged clearly really liked me. One took a bit more effort to bang than the other but they were both yes girls.
Budapest as a city is a nice place to visit, there’s plenty of touristy things to do – which I didn’t do any of apart from on dates. Yes, I’m a philistine. However, I found the Hungarian people to generally be miserable bastards with no sense of humour. There were English stag-parties all over the place spamming up the vibe and the segway snakes did my bloody head in. As they wizzed by me I was always hoping for them to hit a pot hole and fall flat on their face. Unfortunately that never happened.
The nightlife is quite good, there are many bars around the Jewish quarter which makes it very conducive for bar/gutter game. I didn’t do that much of this, instead preferring to just get drunk most evenings with CC as I rued my decision to come to the city.
All things considered, I don’t think I would go back. I didn’t find there to be a high enough concentration of hot girls and it felt like the city was constantly tapping away at my vibe. Although I enjoyed my time there and had a laugh with CC, I was happy to get the bus out of there.
