I just recently overcame my aa. In past two weeks I opened directly over 20 girls that I met on street or in a mall. Still no success. So my question is: What the f**k am I doing wrong? I always thought that once I learn to deal with AA, everything would go smoothly.
My approaches are like this: When I'm passing by a girl, I look at her face judging if I want to meet her... If so, after 2-3 secs I turn back and run after her (she is still pretty close). Then I say something like: 'Excuse me. I just passed you by and my first impression was that it might be interesting to get to know you'. I also tried '... and I thought I would like to meet you' or '... and my first thought was that you are absolutely beautiful and I would love to meet you', etc. The reactions I get are either 'I have a boyfriend' (that happens very often) or "I'm in a rush", etc. I do smile in a friendly manner and maintain EC, at least when saying the 'you are beautiful, I want to meet you' part.
My problem is I'm not fluent in English and I have a strong accent. Still, I would expect to have at least few positive reactions by now. In case it matters: I live in a ~300k Canadian city. Most girls think I'm handsome, although I have some flaws.
Hope you might have any suggestions. I would really appreciate that.
