What's Working During Lockdown – Chase Amante

In What's Working During Lockdown†, Chase Amante argues that the COVID-19 lockdowns actually make for a better-than-normal environment for meeting women. He says that he's hearing from guys who measure things like what percentage of the girls they talk to will go on dates with them, and their numbers are going up during the lockdowns:

> He is getting TWICE as many numbers from women he approaches now than he has for years!

Chase says he predicted this a few months back. He calls it a pickup bonanza. He urges his readers to go out and meet girls during these times, despite how weird everything seems.

At the end, Chase brings up an interesting wrinkle about the proposed "social bubbles" in France and the U.K.:

> Some countries (like France and the U.K.) are talking about preventing their citizens from meeting new people in the very near future.

> The U.K. is introducing lockdown color codes where if they decide to code an area a certain color, people from different households can no longer meet.

> France is introducing a "social bubble" which means each person gets to designate six (6) individuals who are part of his social bubble, and these are the only people he's legally allowed to be around.

> But they haven't introduced these things yet.

> You can still get out there, enjoy this BONANZA of lonely, pent up women... and lock the best one down as your "lockdown girlfriend" before they tell you you can't meet new people anymore.

Clever turn of phrase there: "lock down the best one as your 'lockdown girlfriend'".

Chase is good at turning problems into opportunities and finding angles that will appeal to his readers. He also includes some plugs for his own material. I'm guessing that this mix of advice, encouragement, and advertising is effective marketing for his business.

Scary level of lockdown control that govts want.
