I daygamed today after a long break

It had been over 2 weeks since I’d made an approach and was feeling quite nervous out there. I ended up making 4 approaches and getting the number of a beautiful middle eastern girl.

Even though I’ve made over 350 approaches, approach anxiety is still a major issue. I noticed today that I’m not fully engaged when I’m talking to the girl. Maybe it’s my mind’s defense mechanism, almost like bracing yourself for an accident. But by being this way, I’m not fully expressing myself and that’s weakening my approaches. This is what I’ll be working on the next few times I’m out.

  1. Hey dude, number one thing I do when I open is to make sure I “talk slowly” above all. Add some “vacuum”s or “pregnant pauses” (or whatever it is called). During AA it makes me think I talk slowly, but I think the girl perceives it as “normal” speed. Also gives me some time to think.
