I've been playing with inner game for awhile now and changed quite a bit from what I was. Now I love public speaking, joined toastmasters..etc. I am NOT shy. I can talk with anyone anywhere. They may not want to talk to me, or might not like what I talk about (usually something related to them, and observation..etc) but that's OK. I get comments on my voice all the time. People tell me I should have a radio show. I make solid eye contact and usually wait until she breaks it first. That can be quite fun. I KNOW when they like me and when they dont.
Here is my problem. I don't know how to advance beyond the initial stages of attraction and into deeper conversation. I can flirt nonverbally, Introduce with confidence, start keno..etc. However when it comes time to move along in the conversation I am DONE and go nowhere. I have a hard time talking about something that is non intellectual. If I could just jump in with a girl and start talking about male female relations, psychology, politics, the store we are in, I would be gold. But I cant.
How do I solve this? Any resources?
I suspect this is related to my previous problem where I used to SWEAR I needed a logical reason to talk to a girl or ask her out. Like I needed to help her, or finish a project vs just wanting to get to know her. I need to turn off the damn logic.
