GORGEOUS blonde at the bar with her friend Friday night. I looked at her and she did a double-take and smiled at me with a little stare. I thought I recognized her so I walked right up and said "Hey, I recognize you." Turns out she was in one of the university classes I taught a month or so ago. She was absolutely ENTHRALLED with me and was like "I was hoping you'd come over and talk to me!" She introduced me to her friend has her teacher and we joked a lot about the teacher-student relationship The whole teacher-student thing definitely worked in my favor. The slight element of "power" gave me some extra confidence and I think made her look up to me too. She was having a "girls night" with her friend, so I didn't force the issue or anything. But I set off some good jokes and we had a couple good short conversations. After a good joke (on a high note), I told I had to get back to my friends and handed her my card and said "You should call me." Her eyes LIT UP and she was all smiley and was like "Yea! I definitely will!" In retrospect, I should have gotten her number too, but (A) she was with her friend for girls night and (B) I wanted to do the confidence thing and just leave it in her court to see what happens I may never hear from her again, who knows. Hell, she might have not been interested in talking to me at all. But the fact that I approached her knowing that possible outcome is what excites me and makes me feel like I'm really growing and maturing. Anyways, I'm effing STOKED about this because I almost NEVER approach a girl that good looking and in that manner. 2 months ago I would have thought "She is way too good looking and I don't even know how to do this." It's interesting: I think gaining 20lbs in muscle the past several months has probably made me bigger and more attractive to a point, but I think it's the confidence I get from thinking that that has helped me the most with picking up women. I don't mean to brag, but I'm just excited that I'm finally having some consistent success with women these days. I owe some of it to the VAG for sure, so thanks Cliffs: Guys, you've heard it a thousand times and I'll repeat it: Just go for it. You'll never approach a woman confidently and have any kind of success if you're afraid of being rejected or if you believe you're not good enough for her.
