Whenever you approach a girl, there’s always going to be pressure.
Pressure that you feel, and pressure that she feels.
Here’s a good way to overcome that.
The first thing you say should indicate that you’re not there to “pick her up.”
Then go ahead and pick her up.
Sounds counter intuitive, but it works great.
First, you’ll need a legitimate reason to talk to her OTHER than getting her number. We’ll call it “X.”
Then walk over, politely excuse yourself for interrupting her, and then let her know you’re NOT there too pick her up, you just want to know or want to tell her X.
That removes the pressure, so she doesn’t feel on the spot. It will also let her down a bit, as she was thinking that you were approaching her, when all of a sudden you aren’t.
Kind of like you think some girl is flirting with you, but it’s really the guy behind you.
So anyway, after you find out “X,” whatever it is, then you talk to her about something else.
Then you suddenly get the bright idea that she’s pretty “cool,” and maybe you’d like to hang out. You let her know, and get her number.
It’s kind of a “take away” combined with a “I see the real you, not just the outside you” kind of approach.
Which means it’s very effective.
Try it out, and see how it works.
