Pretty disappointed with myself, actually very disappointed with myself.
I have been tired the whole past week and did not go sarging on weekdays, leaving the sarge for Saturday. Saturday rolls in and I go out to sarge and hit the street, the time is 12PM and as soon as I get out I realize that I should stop going so early. The streets are mostly empty and the few girls that walk on them are either with family or with their gf or bf, basically no sane person goes out on Saturday so early.
Then I make another mistake, being under impression that walking on streets are not so good and that I better stay on same place I decide not to change the location and stick to the current street. I was thinking it is a major intersection right in front of the subway station I should be able to find somebody, but it was wrong.
Those two things did cost me dearly. It took an almost 1.5 hours to see the first lonely wolf. I approached her and it did go actually very well and got a number. But then I ended up waiting another hour without seeing any girl in sight. After that I just did not feel like continuing sarging and ended up not approaching few targets that started to show up and just left the place.
So basically 2.5 hours for a mere 1 approach. That’s sucks, big time. So I have to find or either more busy venue or start going at the later time.
I am simply not prepared to have another day like that.
Later same day I had my second improv class, and I have to say I am enjoying them tremendously. I am probably going to call the first school I found and give it another try. We will see.
This time there was another teacher and a bit less people. After warm up we got paired (I got paired with girl) and we did stuff that I can directly relate to the PUA. We did eye contact to build connection with partner (it was interesting to practice eye contact on actual girl lol), we did body language mirroring we did leading and following, we learned how to take anything that person gives you during the play as a gift and adding to it and giving back (giving mindset anyone? Lol).
As well did some character and scene building and role-playing.
Now you can understand why I want to get a full course of this thing, I really think it will improve communication skills tenfold and with it my communication with women of course.
Half of the people in class were new, and despite it being my second class I did at some point forgot about people around and just went with the flow. When I was leaving the instructor told me it was nice meeting me and invited me to Monday class. Interestingly enough I was the only one who got it, so I will take it as a complements.
It is probably my last post about improv at this time, there is no point describing every class. I will of course write about it when something interesting comes up or we learn some good communication concept or tool.
Find a better street place or change sarging time to a later one.
