Im Ericson - recently moved to Chicago from northern europe. I dont consider myself a geek, nerd or anything like that. Have had pretty good succes with women when i got to know them, but i don't think i have ever tried a cold-approach anxiety. I guess it some kind of cultural build-in flaw from the cold northern euorpe :-)
If anybody outthere are ready for some sarginge (and are ok with that i have never tried this before) let me know!
