How do I get in state? Clear your mind of all thoughts, focus on the present moment + force myself to have fun by smiling and coming from a “give, give, give” frame.
How do I stop ejecting out of set early? Accept the awkwardness. Accept the pressure that comes from an awkward approach.
How can I be more present in the moment? There are a few ways, but aside from clearing my mind, John Sonmez states I shouldn’t be self-conscious – or thinking of what I’m saying is good, or if my tonality is ass, just be present with the girl.
