I'm new to the forum, and would appreciate any advice you guys can offer. If you don't mind I'll just give a small introduction so that you know where I'm coming from.
I'm 27 and have been single for about a year. During this time I have focused on improving both my mind and body (meditating and working out a lot etc) and doing a wide range of activities that give me tremendous joy! Because of all this, my time to socialise is little and have been feeling a certain lack in my life, so now I have decided to improve my social and love life. Although I have been told that I am good looking and charming, I do not have a lot of confidence and am rather shy.
The following audio programs really struck a chord with me: (1) The Mastery Program by Ron Louis and David Copeland and (2) Attracting Women from the Inside Out by Jamie Smart. These have somewhat quelled my limiting beliefs about confidence and speaking with women.
So I am now going out of my way and trying to meet and talk to women. Even just after a few days I feel great and have met and talked to more women in 1 week than in the last year (depressing I know). I do, however, feel that I need to change the way I handle a few things in order to move beyond just talking to actually getting phone numbers and dates. So my questions are:
1. Are there any programs you are aware of that have actual conversations with women that are not scripted, and which may be helpful (like the Mastery Program)? I drive a lot so I listen to audiobooks rather than read, but if you are aware of any good books on the matter please let me know!
2. How does one transition from a casual introductory conversation into something a more flirty and/or romantic conversation? Just by listening to the above, however, my conversation skills with people I know have seen drastic changes, and I am able to keep a conversation going with mere acquaintances for more than 5-10 minutes.
3. Do you know of any products that are specific on e.g. waitresses. There are a couple who I've met recently at places I am a regular and would like to know if there is a specific way to go about it. Lots of eye contact (I keep them going for a little "too long"), smiles that are genuine, but normally too busy to isolate (the one I feel is extremely shy).
4. Any specific products on flirting which you have found useful?
Sorry for the long post guys and thanks in advance!
