Yesterday I had my first crash and burn and jesus that stang like a bitch. The situation involved me walking through a park and I saw this HB6.5 ahead of me. Now it was pretty simple and I decided it would be a good idea to get an opener. So as I walked down the path I realised there was a good 30 seconds before I'd actually reach her... enough time to develop a sense of anxiety over the approach. For the next few seconds I started thinking, crap, crap, I can't just look at her from here so I decided to look around (and I must have looked like a freak fidgeting with himself). As the seconds counted down and the distance between us fell away, I really began to panic inside, knowing I need to make this opener.
And then the time came. Straight away I looked at her and started saying "Hey, I'm in a real rush, but I need your opinion on something..." So far, a plain look on her face. Then "My best friends girlfriend tried to kiss me last night, and....". All of a sudden she picked up her pace whilst leaving me with a cold stare and never looked back.
All in all the opener was proven by many PUAs, however my delivery was totally unPUA style and my lack of confidence and value must have shown clearly. Anyway, that day I felt the sting and all I can say now, is i'm glad the first one is over... I look forward to many more
p.s Any advice on this crash and burn is welcome
>< Because it's worth it ><
