I am going to do the following mingle experiment and blog about the results for seven days:
GOAL: Talk to random, interesting looking, potentially datable strangers and ask for contact info until you get turned down. In other words, keep trying until you fail. For seven days in a row.
LESSON: Learn to take action and overcome the fear of failure.
I wrote in an earlier post that increasing your failure rate was one of the keys to success in dating and other social situations. I try to not recommend anything that I haven't observed or tried myself, so I have decided to do the experiment described above. As usual, I am risking my own reputation in an attempt to help and entertain people.
What counts as failure?
*Asking someone for contact information and being told no.
*Being unsuccessful while sincerely trying to succeed. Can't try to fail on purpose.
What does not count as failure?
*Finding out in conversation that the person has a girlfriend or boyfriend. You have to ask for it to count as a failure.
What is a datable person?
*Not obviously married
*Reasonable age range
*"Break the glass" with an observational comment or question
(If good vibe)
*Ask for contact info
Strategy 2--Go Direct (only used if there is no chance for Strategy 1):
*Look for any sign of encouragement (smile, eye contact, etc.)
*Introduce yourself and go from there.
I am going to blog about each time that I fail for the day. One day at a time. Not going to discuss the times that I succeed. Stay tuned.
