i went on a pretty bad date last night. in essence the problem was that i was very nervous, and i couldn't get into her head. i've taken this girl out quite a few times, so it's not a first-time thing.. most other nights i'm dazzling, once in a while i'm not. i dunno.. the gears in my head just seemed to freeze up. it was obvious because she was very polite, so that was very bad news (she's normally cheeky). i'm thinking i just had a bad day. are there any ways to eliminate those variation in your level of confidence? i'm thinking it's to do with testosterone levels.. notice i tend to do very well on days i hit the gym, or days i'm occupied with other things (when the date isn't the only 'thing' for the day). are there any tricks worth using during the day to put yourself in the best frame of mind for an outing later on?
