    Default Basic Field Report; Thoughts welcome

    I decided I needed some practice projecting my own correct body language and reading others body language. So I went to a local mall to walk around for a bit. I'm 29, so I knew it was unlikely I'd see any HB's that I could open on. Though I did have one situational opener. I'll get to that in a minute.

    I discovered that projecting confidence is considerably easier than I thought. The mall aisles were divided into 2 directions, so I walked on the wrong side (into oncoming people) and tried to stay as close to the center of the aisle as possible with my eyes forward and shoulders back. It was stunning to see people part before me like a boat cutting through water! I only had one or two close brushes with people, and those weren't really that bad. I'm still working on reading other peoples body language though. That's going to definitely take more time.

    I did think of a possible canned opener I'm going to try next time. I always carry a pen with me, so while walking behind or to the side of a lady, just going up and saying "Excuse me, I think you dropped this" while holding out the pen. This allows for light Kino, as I can gently touch their shoulder to get their attention, and it opens up a lot of conversation options as well.

    The situational opener was interesting. I was walking to my car and ended up a few paces behind an Asian HB8-9. Now I naturally walk really quietly, to the point I have to consciously try to make noise when I walk. So I did, and she turned to see me. After a couple steps, I said "Don't worry, I'm only walking to my car too!" She made solid eye contact and laughed pretty good at that. I know I should have said something else, but for the life of me I don't know what.

    Anyway, that's all I got for now. What do y'all think?

    Not too big on Indoor Malls myself as never a target rich local here is a list of target rich locals "Project Iceshield" Part 1: Inner Game Either way I think you should always be closing as they say. Should have tried to score her number man. Plus you would have a lot more luck in a high profile bar or club in a big city. Man I love those places and knocking out 3-4 sets in 30 minutes feels great having a couple drinks in me to give me liquid confidence. Also for Daygame like the link shows Outdoor Malls on weekends are better for this as you have less of a restricting atmosphere (less security and social conditioning). People seem more open in the sunlight so it's real easy to open there where as in an Indoor Mall it feels awkward. Love Outdoor Malls saw a good 3-4 sets in literally 45 min one time this Summer, so epic!

    Yea I know the mall isn't a great spot. I just needed to get out and practice, and it was convenient. There's an open air mall a little further away that I like better anyway. I'll go there too.

    I definitely should have tried to close with her. I just had literally no idea what to say. Honestly, though, I hate bars and clubs. Can't stand them unless I'm too hammered to stand up straight, much less talk to women.
