Hey guys. I hear a lot of talk about being scared to talk to girls and all this AA and such. May I make a suggestion?
Join up with Toastmasters.
Here's why- At Toastmasters it is not just a place where they teach you to be a better speaker infront of large auditoriums of people though that certainly can be learned but it is also about learning to be comfortable in smaller groups and even one on one situations...like in Daygame.
Here's how- The very first speech you give is, if memory serves, 3 minutes about you. Yes, it is you introducing you to the group. Should be easy but for many it is not. Still it is a good foundation for the following exercise: Speak for 60 second about ________ . (Where _____ is a random topic chosen by the Toastmaster.) That is a very strong and powerful exercise. Imagine it when an uber hottie asks what you think about horses. Go! Talk for a bit about horses. See? Certainly not as easy as it may sound but there are techniques to help out even if you know absolutely nothing about horses.
So something to really think about doing. http://reports.toastmasters.org/findaclub/
