So moved recently back to LA. Its a city where I know how to respond to quite well. I would go as far to say that before picking up Gaming i was still pretty decent as socializing but now more focused and carefree. Having learned a lot about framing & principals of gaming and tested the field from a smaller city its interesting to see the difference in responses and actions from people in general. However, something thats occured to me as a slight hiccup is that women in LA tend to do a lot of drifting in conversations. Last night went to a birthday party at a bar and talked to almost everyone--90% of the people there i talked to. Coversations with guys were simple and pretty logically structured. But not to be judgey but the with the women Its all over the place and not very congruent or to the point. Dont get me wrong its not that i dont know what to say. The conversation flows--my question to those who are very experienced in driving a 1 on 1 conversation how do you lock someone onto one subject instead of rolling onto subject over subject over subject. In the span of 2 minutes one coversation I had going with a girl switched to 4 to 5 topics. To me its a bit exhausting to continuously move from so many topics in such a short time.
So what do you guys think? Am I asking for the impossible? Am I not as sharp as I thought I would be in the field in a big city? Am i trying to be too logical all the time? Or am i too in my head?
Every moment counts, get out of your head and enjoy it.
