So the other day I went to this new church nearby, thinking what the heck might as well check it out. They had a band playing and there was this gorgeous backup singer. After they were done, there was a short intermission and everyone got to socialize with each other. Anyway, the backup singer was sitting by herself and messing around on her phone. This was a golden opportunity to try to get over my aa and practice opening (baby steps).
So I decided to go for it and went over to her with a direct approach.
(Nervous as hell)
Me: I came over here to tell you that you are gorgeous and I would be absolutely kicking myself if I didn't say hi to you. I'm chewbacca
Her: I'm (name)
Me: You did a good job singing up there btw.
Me: (assumption stacking) you look like the type of girl who enjoys and appreciates good music.
Her: (talking about music) fluff
Then break time was over, thank God because I felt the conversation was getting boring for her. Told her it was nice meeting her and went back to my seat.
Then once the service was over, I made such a huge mistake (an AFC move). I went back to her and said, "you seem like a cool girl to get to know, and I was wondering if I can have your number?" Once I said this I realized I didn't build enough attraction or get enough ioi's from her to go for a Number Close. Plus, I totally forgot to use suave kino's number close method.
Her response: (hesitate) uh, why don't we just talk some more next time.
Me: okay (give her a handshake and leave)
All in all, I still got to practice and I realize some things I did wrong, but I am glad I took the initiative to approach. This is the first step and hopefully there will be more successful field reportsl to come. Thanks for reading and feedback will be much appreciated!
