Window of Escalation

Quick Definition: Specific time frames where the opportunity to escalate is presented by the girl and/or by situational circumstance.

Full Definition:

A window of escalation is an opening to escalate seduction with the girl. An example of a window is when the two of you are alone, both isolated from your groups, and she is looking at you with DDBL eyes. Windows are great for the bold to take hold of the opportunity and escalate to a kiss or extraction. Like opportunities, they can be created based on logistics, such as having to drive a girl friend home for the night; the PUA can invite her to come up as long as there is a plausible deniability for such an action to counter token resistance.

When a window closes, it becomes harder to escalate if the PUA has not already reached a certain point. For example, if no kiss is initiated by day 2 and kino escalation is present but low, it will be a lot harder to kiss close. Likewise, if the girl is willing to sleep over but the PUA decides not to or has another obligation, it becomes significantly harder for her to make the same kind of offer or commitment a second time.
