Same thing happened to me last week.
I was sitting at some bench in the park drinking coffee and smoking Dunhill. Ups. My favorite cigarrro.
And I saw a girl that's just exactly my type. Her hair, her pretty face, the way she dressed, etc. Perfectly what I wanted. But, she was with her friend. So I got confused on how to approach her (read: terrified), shit just get worse you know, the more I think the more I terrified.
I even followed her and stalking like a chump, try to keep it cool I pretend to listen to some mp3s.
I didn't approach her, she's gone.
And I regret it, real bad. So-called practices and learn (sarging, reading, posting, etc) all don't mean shit, when these kind of things happened
You my friend, don't let the same thing happen.
All I want to say is... Just drop the game thing. You don't need it. Just be genuine.
Don't waste the chance that you have been given.
