I avoid any interviews with women. At first it was odd to me to speak to a girl and not to ask her "standard questions", to be honest, I don't care if she has a pet, brother, where is she from, her religion, nationality, what does she do for life, and so I don't ask those unless it's an opener.
I usually fail at very begining of opening (at nightclubs it's normal since the music is too loud) or later at creating comfort.
There is something I like to do when I come home, I write in a notepad file what I did wrong. Everything that comes to my mind. So, next time I will not do the same mistake.
