A Beautiful nightmare…
Wow, great show.
Great stuff, really love how it brings out the internal strife both men and women feel, when it comes to trying to meet/impress/attract new people, by showing them as oblivious or unphased by the horrors around them.
Fantasyland! I can already hear her sarcastic comments and see
the disgusted, unhappy and angry look on her face that you dared to
talk to her ( “I don’t know YOU! Leave me alone!” ) and she goes to sit someplace else. I have already seen this movie!
Dave–I’ve chatted up probably about 15 or 20 people on a subway. They’ve all gone well. Some of the conversations don’t last for more than a couple of minutes, but several have lasted the whole ride, and I’ve gotten about 5 numbers–including one who followed up with me.
There was only one girl who was a bit stuffy–but my opening line was really stupid as well.
And I’m not some massively hot guy–I’m 5’5 and look flat out average.
Mr. A. – Sounds like you have one marvelous presentation! You must be very outgoing to make so many approaches and you obviously like
people. You must have done SOMETHING over the years to find such
a comfortable way of looking at this.
To be honest, not really. And I”m actually not that outgoing at all. The main thing I really learned that was new (to me) was that it’s ok to talk to people and that if you’re at all relaxed and engaging it will usually go well.
I do go through phases–sometimes I’m fine with it and enjoy it, sometimes I run into this weird mental block and just don’t say anything. But in general, if you’re friendly, girls will be friendly–and you can then move things forward. You need to be able to let yourself look at things in a new way, though.
