Approaching women, starting conversations with
men, how to know if they're "The One in 30 Seconds or Less" ... subjects of
great importance that have been done to death. After all, you'd think that by
now the average man or woman would be able to find someone special, or even
just find a date for Saturday night, easily enough.
And it is that easy. In the action part of the
beginning to talk reaction, that is. Getting up the courage to ask for that
first date, to use the right ice-breaker that doesn't show you as a loser,
needy or just stupid nervous person can take the better part of your lifetime.
Right? It doesn't have to, you just have to have some confidence in yourself
and believe (usually correctly) that the other person is just as nervous, if
not more, that you.
And go and introduce yourself. Get a phone number,
an email, and walk away. Keep your introduction short and sweet. Get the next
step information for your possible date material and move it on.
After all, what you have to really be concerned
about is screwing up your first date. That's right. You can always
re-introduce yourself. Correct bad first impressions, should it be necessary.
But not screwing up that first date, that takes
real talent. Real smoothness.
There are millions of ways to screw up that date,
any date. But the first screwup will usually be your last. And this article
isn't about how NOT to screw up your first date - it's about how you WILL
screw it up. Make a mess of yourself so badly that no one, ever, will want to
date you. The way you'll behave, act, let things happen to you on that first
date will become legend. She (or he) will be talking about it to their friends
long after your name is forgotten.
