After having gone through some massive reading of forums, books and pdfs, I decided to give it a go and see how I can manage by myself.
Before I begin, I would like to point out that I am using PUA to get a girlfriend and am not interested in ONS.
So, I met this HB6 at a party a couple of weeks ago and the first contact was pretty good. There was a lot of noise and we were both in a hurry at the end, so I simply gave her my business card and told her to write me back. And so she did the next day and even added me as a friend on facebook. I suggested that we meet again in a tenday (there was a public holiday, so I was out of town) for drinks or something like that and she agreed.
I can tell she is quite proactive. Upon my return, she contacted me again asking me if I was back and how my vacation went. I acted slightly distant in my first reply and then she went straight to the point and said "let's meet".
So far so good.
I had no intention to f*close on the first date as I first wanted to know her better and see if she's really my type. So, we met for drinks last night. For a first date, we arrived both late (but at the same time nevertheless). How cool is that? I always suck at being punctual with friends, lol.
Things that seemed ok:
-I tried to pay attention to body language. I was turned towards her, quite close and she didn't seem to mind. I couldn't bring myself to do much Kino (touched her once or twice when I was about to bring up a new subject of discussion). She, on the other hand, touched me a bit more. The thing is that I usually don't make a move if I am not sure I like the girl.
-She seemed to try to find some common points. For example, she brought up this whole astrology crap (how classic) and she concluded that she always got along well with people of my sign.
-We had some good laughs and she suggested to take me to some cool bars I didn't know about.
Things that sucked:
-So, I went to fetch some drinks at the bar and came back quicker than expected. She was texting somebody (I managed to catch a glimpse of a guy's name). She was kinda surprised when she saw me and she immediately took away her phone from my field of vision. Mmm, she could be a player...
-I was struggling to find discussion topics. There were these blank moments, which I absolutely dread. I had to quickly come up with something interesting. In the end, we talked about classing things like hobbies, things to do in town, traveling, uni (we went to exactly the same places), people in general, etc.
-What surprised is that she didn't enquire much about me (from my past experience, I could tell that a girl was interested by the number of questions she would ask me). I have an interesting past as I have lived in quite a lot of countries and this usually appeals to chicks. I did throw some clues at her, but she didn't catch the bait.
-Near the end of the date, she was looking at her watch (!!! really bad sign !!!). Fortunately, I had a birthday party to go to just afterwards (had a present with me, etc.), so I didn't pass as a complete loser.
In conclusion, I don't think she had a great time but it's not a real loss as we didn't have that many things in common in the end. She appeared kinda cold and not romantic at all (she also admitted not liking to touch other people - when mentioning the French custom of everyone kissing each other's cheek as a way of greeting. She was mainly brought up by her father and had a boyish attitude. She also seemed to be quite an egoist and difficult to please. The more she talked about herself, the less I liked her.
Near the end, I was a bit pissed off about how the whole date turned out, so I threw in a reference to my ex in the discussion. I love to do that as, without exception, chicks react to that. You can easily tell as their look changes for a couple of seconds, lol.
Anyway, I wanted to use this date as practice to see what's wrong with my game and I realise that I have a looooooooooooong way to go still. I may have not what it takes to seduce effectively, I don't know...
Again, it's a numbers game, so I need to try meeting more chicks.
Thanks for reading my post!
