This is just a copy/paste of a post I made on the Roosh V forum, since I'm too lazy to do an entirely original entry this morning:
Two approaches yesterday.
I was sitting next to this girl on the train. Blonde, green eyes. She
got off on the same stop I did. I made eye contact with her a few times,
and even though she was wearing headphones, I just opened indirect.
We just talked about the heat first, and then she mentioned she was from
Florida originally. I told her I used to go down there a lot when I was
younger. Connection made. We had a pretty good conversation from there
and she was quite friendly. When her transfer train came I asked her to
get coffee but she said she had a boyfriend. I used my usual counter,
but I think a bit too late, oh well.
Were it not for the boyfriend I think I would have had this one.
Things I think I could have done better on the approach though, are as follows:
1. Although my voice tone and body language was dominant (again guys,
working out and consistently practicing speaking by making videos and
podcasts REALLY helps to make
you naturally good in these areas), I should have asserted a more sexual
vibe as Gio says. I did however assert some dominance by signaling her
to stop talking when a train was approaching and she complied. That was
2. I should have given her one specific compliment. I liked her perfume.
That would have been an ideal choice, but I forgot it in the heat of
This was the first time I actually approached a girl on the street. Dark
hair, nice tits. On the way home, I saw her wandering back and forth
and asked humorously if she was lost. She responds in a foreign accent
that she wasn't. There was my opening, as I asked her where she was
from. She told me she was from France, and Paris specifically.
This was also a connection because my brother visited Paris last year.
So we talked about Paris vs New York. Again it was a nice conversation
but the girl was in a rush. She told me she needed to find her bank. At
the end of the block she went off.
What I should have done was grab her by the arm and with a masculine
smile asked her what bank she needed to find, as I have lived in this
neighborhood my whole life and I would certainly be more efficient at
finding it than you are, or something like that.
But hey, this is how you learn. It's pretty amazing how much momentum
you can get after doing an approach, even if it doesn't end the way you
want. All the fear is utter bullshit. This stuff is fun.
