So I took the summer off from gaming and did one day of day game in the past month. Finally did a little more last night.
First warm up was I saw a group of girls taking selfies and I tried to get in just being smiley and fun, not weird. They laughed and said no. I didn't care, it was funny
Had some convos with people I knew and met through mutual friends, even flirty convo with some girls who I met in the social circle. Wasn't nervous.... Then I went to do my first approach.
Grabbed one girl's hand who was like immediately pushed away by her friends. No way I was gonna stop that.
This next approach my friend and i opened a two set. Both girls were dancing so I went in first and I pointed at her and was like "You! I'm gonna dance with you" I turned to the friend and said "I'm gonna dance with your friend" and began to pull the girl away. Then my friend came and opened the other girl. I felt I had a good strong frame, good eye contact, she was smiling and giggling, but then I feel like this is where it went wrong. I grabbed her arms and she told me to stop shaking. I've always had the problem of shaking when I get nervous, especially since I've taken so long off. And I try to keep alcohol low so I don't need it as a crutch. At first I was like no you're the one shaking (which in hindsight was stupid), then I tried to go with it and was like "yeah I guess I'm afraid of pretty girls" and laugh it off but I could see her just pulling away from me energy wise from then on. I did eventually calm down a little and just made some conversation to get out of my head, but then my friend bailed on the other girl because some guy came in and hugged her, so he assumed they knew each other and he left, because he assumed that that guy was gonna basically distract the other girl for me. Then the dude immediately walked away and I was left with one who was not really into it probably because of my nervous energy, and her friend who seemed a bit more outgoing (shoulda went for her in the first place but it's whatever now). After a little more convo with both, I said it was nice to meet them both and that I was gonna go find the group I was with.
So yeah, basically I felt good about what I did (besides uncontrollable nervous trembling), and had I not been so nervous it could have gone better I think. I also feel I was more nervous because in my mind, I wasn't just talking to a group of friends, I was gaming. I'm planning on doing daygame at least every day from now on to get back into it and be able to control my nerves. I usually don't like doing it alone but at this point I want to get back to where I was so I have no choice.
Any thoughts or comments from anybody?
