I'm 22 years old and a total newbie. I actually have a wingman that I consider pretty good at picking up women. I try to learn from him, but he's on a such different level that it is hard to pick up on things on the fly.
The thing is that this wingman thinks I'm pretty good with women. It's because I gave him that idea from the fake stories I told him about my college experiences.
Anyways, last night he/we approached 2 ladies at a club and I was in total panic mode. I was pretty much thrown into the water without knowing how to swim. At first I panicked, but I eventually calmed down and had an "okay" conversation with the girl. Mainly small talk, but it was a natural conversation.
However, it got to the point where I slightly panicked and had nothing else to talk about. At the end of the day, I couldn't tell if she just wasn't into me or I just wasn't being aggressive enough. This scenario where I run out of things to talk about happens often with me.
Meanwhile, my wingman is chatting it up with the other girl, flirting being funny(which he naturally is) and eventually getting to the dance floor with her and closing the deal.
Last night was a wake up call for me that I need desperate help. I would like to start from scratch.
Where should I start on this forum?
Also, how can I benefit from having a good wingman?
Thank you for your time!
