There are certain core skills you must master in life. And one of the most important is learning the art of cutting your losses.
In business that means not throwing good money after bad. With investments it’s selling under-performers early to prevent larger, more catastrophic losses. And with women it means walking away when you realize she’s not worth pursuing anymore.
I think most guys understand this concept – it’s pretty basic. But cutting losses is surprisingly difficult. Because once you’ve invested time, energy, and money into something it’s hard to admit you were wrong, if it doesn’t work out.
But you gotta resist your urge to hold losers! And this applies double to ‘loser’ women who are wasting your time. You must develop a cold, ruthless, and business-like mindset when it comes to dating. And you gotta be willing to cut women out of your life fast.
Tinder date catfished me last night.
Didn’t say a word, I just turned & walked out.
Sometimes good game is simply cutting your losses.

Here are more examples of cutting your losses:
You match with a girl on Tinder. Then you ask for her number quickly, like usual. But she refuses you. She wants to ‘get to know you’ first, she’d rather stick with chatting on Tinder, maybe she’ll give you her number later. You don’t argue. You just un-match her right away.
You find another girl on Tinder. You meet her for the date, and it goes well at first. She’s young, pretty, and feminine. But then you realize, halfway through, that she isn’t into you at all. She’s bitchy, hard to talk to, and is uncomfortable with your touch. And you also notice she’s got a chipped front tooth! This date is going nowhere. So you get up and walk out without saying another word.
You meet a sexy young Venezuelan girl at the park while you’re working out. You give her your number since you don’t have your phone with you. And when you get home, she’s already texted you! But then you try getting her out on a date, and she refuses. You text her a few times after that, but she simply won’t meet up. So you delete her number and forget about her.
You meet a girl working at a restaurant using social proof game. You go on a first date and then fuck her the same night. The sex is great and you expect to see her again. But she stops returning your texts, deletes you off social media, and never talks to you again. So you accept the one-night stand, delete her info, and move on.
You date a girl for seven months. You want her as your girlfriend but she doesn’t take the relationship seriously. You’re just a fuck-buddy. You see her less as time goes on. Eventually she won’t return your texts and you’re certain she’s dating another man. The rules are slightly different here. In this case, she could come back in the future. So you cut your losses by stopping all communication. But you keep her contact info and stay connected through social media. You withhold your attention, but allow her to come back if she re-initiates sexual contact with you.
Chasing ‘loser’ women is a massive waste of time.
Yes, it’s true that winners don’t quit.
But winners also recognize when they’ve made mistakes.
They know when to walk away and spend energy elsewhere.
It’s much better to focus on women who ARE into you.
So don’t be afraid of cutting your losses fast, for any reason, at any stage of the game.
