brand new to this whole pick up thing. some details before the question. (note, i am not complaining about anything, its just how it is right now.)
i'm 19 years old, and have social anxiety really bad. incredibley shy, have really bad posture, can't look in a mirror, can't look at a person's eyes for more than a second. i am a studing magic for the art, not just to pick up people. that means i spend a lot of time in my room, looking down and working on stuff alone.
1 i can't approach anyone. even to show them an effect. go out with loaded pockets of simple stuff, matchs, rubber bands, sponge balls, some coins and it just stays put.
2 the kind of magic that is most appealing to me is the death defying stuff. that means playing with fire, knives, nails, blood, razors, needles, escapes... you get the idea. because of this, tend to get some interesting injuries from time to time. (good example is when a razor blade slashed up the tongue pretty good)
questions now (sorry it's a lot)
how to approach people with out just having your hands outstretched and the whole look at me thing?
is the dangerous stuff a help or hinderance to meeting girls?
thanks so much
