Yesterday I approached 100 women as part of a bake sale at my uni (the rest of the team just stood at the stall while I moved around approaching any passerbys and kept a tally). I learned a lot from the experience, but one thing which stood out is how similar women are to children.
Towards the end of the 4 hours it began to 'click' - approaching women became natural and fluid, and the successful interactions beared resemblance with interacting with children. For example, using lines you'd typically use on children, complimenting them and watching their eyes light up, using varying tones of voice etc. I then had no problem approaching even groups of 2-3 hot girls and I felt amazing.
Next day (today) I'm beginning to see women as mature adults again, if that makes sense. I realised that this is what causes me to fuck up and have approach anxiety and boring conversations.
Do I just need to keep at it to train myself to interact with women as though they are children? Is there any other way to facilitate this change in perception?
