Re: My AA is out of this world!
For me the opposite is true. The minute I get to Clubs and Bars I have to hold back from approaching since I am feeling so confident but make myself wait till 11pm to get warmed up then hit it up like no problem. However the minute I walk into a day game arena such as Water Park, Outdoor Mall, Holiday Event I freeze and don't know what to do. I plan on jumping out of the airplane (Mystery Method's Analogy) regardless come next Summer. I still remember the 9 from the Water Park in the bikini I never approached, isolated and just easy game or the 10 at the Outdoor Mall with the Old People I never approached would have been so easy looking back on it.

The chicks at Bars & Clubs are very high quality and hard to game but so are the Day Game ones both arenas have their perks. Either way you need to get out there and explore life by approaching some Sets. Remember what Mystery says you MUST remove the fear of foreign territories first. You do this by becoming a regular to the Bars & Clubs and getting to know people as well as hitting up the Holiday Events often (annually if possible) and buying a season pass to a Water Park. I think your biggest problem is you have the fear of foreign territories on top of the fear of the approach.
I noticed approaching at Bars & Clubs is so comfortable for me because I visit the same spots, know the Bartenders, Managers, Servers, Cocktail Waitresses, Dj's, other Regulars, and sometimes even make friends. In these regards have a small social circle (or at least point people and a warm up routine) you get in a conversational mood. This is easy to lift your state at Night. I am still trying to figure out a warm up routine for like a Water Park or Outdoor Mall since those events seem harder to handle but again this because I have my inhibitions regarding Day Game. Either way next year I will start approaching at Beer Festivals, buy a Season Pass for a Water Park, and hit up some Holiday Events to figure out how to do that type of Pick Up.
101 Sets, 30 #'s, 4 K-closes, 1 Date, 1 Bar Pull. My next adventure starts Summer 2014 at the Brewfest, Water Park, Bars, Clubs, etc. Getting Hotels now to prevent driving drunk so really only 2-3 times a month doing Night Game June-Oct. Lots of Day Game.
