Ahoy-hoy. Really enjoyed the latest podcast, fellas - professional, slick, relevant, and on-point. However, just a question about it that I would appreciate you clarifying.
From the get-go, I've never really fully understood the "I thought you looked 'nice' " opener that alot of you instructors tend to use when you are approaching and stopping the girl.
At any one time in London, there must be at least 1,000 girls that are on the street that look...'nice' (your target will know that, too). Yet, you have chosen to chase down one particular girl, run after her or risk life and limb crossing a road to meet her and when you catch up with her you admit you did it because she looked...ahem...'nice' (hardly a flattering compliment). Surely she must think that it's an awful lot of trouble to go to, on your behalf, just because she looks nice - and what makes her 'nicer' than the other 'nice' girls there on the street.
Surely you have to use a stronger compliment?
Nice is such a wish-washy word, signifying next to nothing. I know if some of my female friends were called nice by a guy that approached them, 99% of them would not even take it as a compliment.
So, where does the power come from in this type of approach? Aren't we meant to be opening HARD and impressively, and closing in the same way?
What is with all this 'nice' baloney, guys?
