Great idea to get over approach anxiety

Reddit View
September 13, 2019

So I was talking to my very secure friend who is naturally RP. I was talking about having approach anxiety at bars and stuff and he told me a game he used to play with his boys back in college.

Game goes like this:

You take $100 out of an ATM in $20 bills and give it to a friend.

Every time you approach a girl, regardless of outcome you get $20 back.

I thought this idea was brilliant and just wanted to share it. I’ll be doing this Saturday night.

Your friend may have just revolutionized the game.

I think this was in 'the game' tbh

Basically it's your ego vs your money. Which is more important to you.

My man, take a public speaking class if you get nervous talking to people/girls. Or an acting class. When I was starting out those really helped me. I also work in a job where I have to talk to clients, so if you are in a spot in your life where you can get a job, say bartending, that will take the nerves out of talking to strangers. Basically just get used to talking to strangers.

Quick trick, this is 2004 PUA tricks but it works: Pretend you've fucked her before. This takes the outcome nerves out.

You're supposed to be faking confidence anyway my man, lol. Why be nervous? It's just a girl. Remove the stigma from it in your mind. Fear is the mind killer my dude. If you get rejected 99 times but hit on 1, you're still getting laid. It's not a failure if they say no, it's not a reflection on you either, just your game, and you can fix your game. Relax about it.

One tip, don't exchange any money in the bar where girls will see. IE don't go up to a girl, have an interaction, and then walk back to your buddy to collect $20. Girls see everything in a bar, they will see that and your night is over (unless you are very smooth, and when the next girl shit tests you over it I'd just own it, chicks love talking pick up and that could be your bantz routine). Also, if you do get rejected, don't let it show. Like leave the interaction laughing, again, girls see everything in the bar, if they think they just saw you get rejected, they will reject you when you come talk to them simply out of a desire to protect social standing within that bar (ie she rejected him so why wouldn't I?)

It's very old trick. I have read it so many time on PUA forums but first time here on askTRP.

Keep approaching. Maintain the view that every approach is simply practice. And you are not to expect anything great. If anything does happen, great. If it doesnt, then no big deal.

Eventually rejection will be no big deal. Actually being able to handle rejection will help you through life in general because life has alot of disappointments.

All approaching is practice and the girl should be glad you are taking the time to actually speak to her because you are an amazing guy ( Think of it like that).

most dudes would gladly give up $100 to not be rejected in public. make it some significant amount of your savings and yea it'd probably work lol

[–]surrealismen2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Who the fuck would give up 100$ like that. Not most dudes at a bar.

[–]throaway694040 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Rather spend those 100$ fucking a prostitute

[–]proplfax0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

u cured social anxiety nice

[–]Velebit1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

There is a better one. You and a bunch of friends all deposit 100$ and the one with most rejections after 10 days gets half of all money. 2nd and 3rd get quarter. Others get no money but they are not unhappy because they got least rejected.

That what you do to earn money?

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
