Throughout this week I haven’t been approaching as much as I ought to due to the rigorous schedule my college has and therefore, I’ve done one approach within the past 4 days. To top it off, I’ve been a shut-in due to programming constantly and I can sense my social skills declining. Therefore, today I decided to go out and do four approaches today. To start, I felt like a newbie again today: Approach anxiety, awkwardness, and passing opportunities to talk with women were common. Let’s get to the report, shall we?
Approach #1: I started my day game by going to a local Target where hot moms are known to haunt. My first approach was with this relatively attractive white woman. I hesitated immensely, passing her three times before I maned up and did the approach. When I told her she was cute and I wanted to say hi, she looked at me blankly and said, “I’m married” before abruptly walking off. I felt my ego take a hit. Like, big time… which is GOOD. My body needs to readjusts to rejections.
Approach #2: I went indirect and asked this cute Latina girl working at a store about to close down (I forgot the name) by saying, “Excuse me, do you know when this store is closing down?” She told me mid-late March. I smiled and told her another reason why I approached her is because I liked her hairstyle. It was short and curly and honestly looked pretty cute. She thanked me and we chatted for 5 minutes or less. She’s going to college for robotics. I was relatively amused as I’m going to college to become a software engineer – both related fields.
Unfortunately, she went back to work while slowly talking to me, losing interest, before I said my goodbyes.
Approach #3: I walked to Marshalls and did my third approach there. She was a Latina in her mid-20s, shopping down an aisle. I hesitated momentarily before doing the approach. I smiled and said, “Hey, I saw you from an aisle over and I thought you were cute and had to say hi.” She paused momentarily, smiled and laughed before saying, “Hahaha, sorry but I’m with my boyfriend right now!” I smiled politely, thanked her, and gtfo’d faster than Flash Gordon out of that store.
Approach #4: Final approach. I suppose you can call the final set an indirect direct approach. I met this Latina woman, mid-30s, who was wearing this interesting looking fur coat. I approached her and asked where she got her coat from and stated it looked nice. She smiled warmly and said Mexico City before stating she actually lives in San Luis, AZ. She works as an RN in Mexico and went shopping with her sister in my hometown for the weekend. We chatted for about 10 minutes before I noticed her looking around. She said she had to reunite with her sister before smiling pleasantly and waving goodbye to me.
Overall Verdict: Man, remember those days I said getting a phone number was an ‘okay day’? I change my mind, those are GOOD days. I didn’t think I’d lose alot of my game so fast. It doesn’t matter. I need to find a way to do more approaches daily so I can keep working on my game.
