Today was an amazing day today, it was a breakthrough for me. I struggled with AA all day, and went from doing no approaches to doing 5. My first one was my best chance for a number close but I blew it. She was very sweet and nice and was happy to talk to me, I used my go-to opener, moved the conversation along to the weather, then about dogs, and i introduced myself, but I thought it was too soon for a number close so I didn't ask. It's the closest i've been to a number close since I joined PUA TRAINING. That's the good news, now for the sticking points. My question is about the other 4 aproaches that I didn't know how to move along, I got stuck on the opener and left the interaction early, unlike my 6 minute first approach the other 4 we're less than a minute. I love animals and can talk about them forever, the other 4 girls didn't have dogs so I didn't know how to get off the opening subject, and one girl was very defensive and was privy to my intention. My opener was about what her favorite yogurt was and she said: "please don't buy me yogurt", how can I deal with that? I also ran out of things to say.
