Re: Unusually STRANGE cold approach (HB7)
It is a bit strange indeed. But I think the convo took a shift when you said "Guess what she did?" It seems like you were already starting to close up the convo at that point rather than transition.
The other part was "and you know what's really sad?" Umm....you're kind of suppose to put her in a good mood. Not a bad one. It's suppose to be a fun conversation and a mentally stimulating argument. That's why whatever she says (Oh I would burn them!) you have to challenge it. Ask her why she said that and maybe even tell her your opinion (which just so happens to be opposite of hers). Telling her "and you know what else is sad" is simply you telling her a story that you were finishing up yourself and she knew it. Plus it put her in a seemingly depressed mood.
Good attempt though. Lots of guys are still dealing with aa. Try and assume attraction when you are first talking to them. This may help you not to try and get out of the convo subconsciously like you did here. Maybe you lost confidence and didn't know where to steer the convo so you began to exit and kill the convo smoothly. Regardless it almost seemed like she walked away on cue.
