So, if you’ve been taking my advice and practicing talking to women, you may be feeling fairly confident and ready to start talking to that cute barrista at your local Starbucks or the hot coed you keep seeing crossing campus every Tuesday. But… what do you say? Do you go for something clever, or something funny or just a direct “hi, how are you, I’m…”
And then your anxiety kicks in, your brain starts to smoke and either the girl has wandered off or you’ve been standing there looking increasingly like a panicked deer before you make a sudden about face and flee.
Or worse, you’re at a bar and you try an honest-to-god pick-up line in the hopes that you’re going to get the girl laughing instead of thinking you’re the cheesiest, most unoriginal creep to hit on her tonight.
So, what’s a nerd to do? How are you supposed to approach these new women you want in your life?
