In order to improve my interpersonal skills, I plan to approach/open 100 times. I rarely go to bars/clubs, so I think I will open girls/females whom I meet in my everyday life. I am prepared to fail 100 times, but for every approach, I will learn a lesson from it. I will post my 100 experiences in this thread. And I want you guys to help me grow.
1. In the elevator
It is a woman, around 40 year old. She lives in the same building as me. I meet her in the elevator many times, but I have never talked to her. She is cold, never smiles. Today I met her twice in the elevator, one time at noon and one time in the evening.
In the evening, when I was in the elevator, the door opened, it was her .
"I met you twice today, what a coincidence." I said to her.
"Yeah." She replied to me, no smile.
"Could you do me a favor?"
"Can you smile?" I said.
"You're sick." She got angry.
After that, she didn't speak any word. Awkward silence until the elevator reached the ground floor.
I think next time if I meet another girl who is not smiling, I can say,
"Could you do me a favor"
"Life is not that serious, could you smile?"
"Thank you, you still did me a favor."
"I just wanted to know how people would respond when they were asked to smile by a stranger."
One concern I have is, maybe some years later, like 10 years or 15 years, I will become a famous person, at that time, people will remember me that many years ago I hit on her and she might share the experience with the public and it will smear my positive image in the public. Please advise.
