But the person he picked could have been totally horrible and he must have been there for ages...

Most guys here are not very discerning when it comes to a girl. They only want one thing and are not picky. It would only take him about 45 minutes to an hour and whamo, he had a date.

Most guys do not worry about the fact that 91% of them are totally horrible. They know they are stronger so what can she do?

Is that all? I don't know if I would like to do that -- only if I get really desperate...

adriana's Facebook page is back up interestingly.

I could only say that every guy should do it just for the valuable lesson it would teach us.

I recommend it at least once.

Won't they be put off by my age though?

I am 18, in a hospital most women must be middle-aged or around that figure.

I meant for ones around your age and a little older. It sure drives the shyness and indecision away. An hour of that and no one will be unable to approach them anymore.

Yes, but that only lasts for the same day or even just a few hours. It doesn't last any longer than that.

Sometimes it can be like riding a bike. You just never forget. If someone needs to do it multiple times then maybe he should. Wished I had done it instead of laughing at that dufus.

I can't ride a bike...

It really just depends on my mood. If I've just given a speech or a presentation, lecture etc. then I have the confidence to do that.

Once you overcome the fear of rejection, asking even perfect strangers gets to be very easy. That confidence affects them and persuades them to say yes. That is the valuable skill he had and all others lack.

Confidence is a powerful weapon when dealing with people in general. People sense it and defer to it, girls find it irresistible.

Yes, I've seen what confidence can do. My friend said that I suddenly become very confident when explaining something, especially if it's maths -- his English is not great, but he said that I say it with such authority that he believes whatever I say. Truthfully, I can see the power of confidence especially in public speaking. I know that girls like it, but it just doesn't seem to be enough...

Why not let them decide by giving them a steady dose of it?

I don't know if I'm ready for that yet... I prefer to just do the approaching thing, going up to a girl on her own and talking to her. I did that yesterday until her BF came.

I remember one time I felt so confident that I said "could I get your number?". I was shocked I actually said that. It's just maintaining that confidence which is the issue.

The confidence may come and then you will know you have it and so will they. Have a chore, see you in about 15 minutes.

Hi;

Took a lot longer than I figured.

Dishwashing?

That is correct! What a mess.

Yes, it takes a long time for me too. And then it just fills right up again a few hours later.

It is amazing, pots and dishes and the worst are the utensils!

I like doing the utensils -- I like to do those first. Only downside is that you can be washing for half an hour and it still looks like you've done nothing, if you go that route...
