Hey, Chris here...
I'm kinda noobish at this stuff, so I'll get right to the point. My "game" is not solid, but it's getting up there FAST. Here's the problem I have. I can EASILY approach/pickup within a social circle. However, I have troubles approaching women randomly. To give you a background on what I'm into here is 100% "natural" game. When I first started looking into this stuff I did do a couple canned openers, and they worked. They worked pretty well in fact. I stood back and thought "What's making this work?". It was not what I was saying, it was how I was saying it.
With that said, I knew canned openers were out. I have not studied much of anything but natural game. Like I said the only issue I have right now is cold approaches. I don't know exactly what is stopping me. I think I have a problem escalating from the open, to the number, or venue change. I think I go into my head a doubt it and it shows thru me. Any ideas or advice would be GREAT!
