I went out to one of the biggest bars down town...

I didn't talk to anyone other than the bartender, but I decided to just observe other people and see how the interact, since I was by myself... which can be a crutch in itself...

I noticed that other guys SMILED a lot more than I do and were generally more positive.... they didn't necessarily talk about anything deep or meaningful, but they smiled.... I think I just need to loosen up and have more fun and I would do a lot better in life...

I also noticed that just because girls are hanging out with a guy and even using him as their protector for the night... that doesn't mean that they are together or having sex.... she is still fair game....

I also noticed that I am not scared of any guys... and you can't be..... just like Mystery when he stands up to the military men in the book.... but it's best to BEFRIEND all the social men.... gain social proof.... life is too short for hate....

I had a great chance to make an opener on this really hot girl that was sitting right next to me... but I chickened out and/or couldn't think of anything to say.... not sure which is the truth, actually....

I think a compliment opener would have been appropriate.....

I also realized that the purpose of introducing yourself and talking to girls is not to say "I WANT SEX RIGHT NOW," but it should be more like.... trying to get to know them to see if you like them and want to progress any further....

Also, the term "pick up" could mean "pick up their spirits," and make them feel better if they're having a rough day or a rough time in life in general...

Is this one good enough for responses?
