I’ve been running into issues opening solo so today my main objective was to head out at lunch and open a set.
#1 The approach and stop went well. As soon as I opened my mouth though I was slurring like I was hammered. She couldn’t understand what I was saying and I didn’t really pause that much. My brain and my mouth just aren’t up to speed to be quick witted in the beginning so I think a default easy opener is the way to go.
The first few sets of the day I should just make as easy as possible on me and go with the standard “Hi… I just have to say something and I know this is going to be totally random… I was just over there… when I saw you walking by… and I knew I had to come over here and say Hi… because… You… are… insanely… cute.”
What I learned today:
- Pauses are crucial in the opener. It gives the girl time to catch up to what’s happening and processing what you’re saying.
- Initial sets of the day are complete throw a ways. I’m only going to expect them to just help me get into state and go absolutely nowhere.
