One of the most frequently asked questions I receive is about approaching women and starting a conversation with them.
The more confident amongst you can stop laughing now.
The thing to keep in mind here is that for a subset of men, the idea of trying to start up a conversation with someone they’re attracted to – with the hopes of getting at least an e-mail or a phone number, if not an actual date – is downright terrifying. And really, when you think about it, it’s understandable. You’re trying to approach someone, convince them that you’re actually a charming and worthwhile individual and attempt to persuade them into starting a relationship. This by itself is almost absurdly difficult on it’s face. When you add in the lack of socialization that many of the nerd persuasion have, as well as accumulated years of damage to one’s self-esteem and the incredibly mixed messages absorbed via pop-culture… small wonder why the mere thought can trigger a lovely surge of adrenaline, isn’t there?
