Why you are afraid to talk to girls

This was in response to a post in our subreddit. Welcome. I’d like to start off by saying it’s not natural for 99.999% of human beings. This subreddit is not the 0.001%. There are many of us that are just like you, who struggled to communicate and feel comfortable around women. For a good many […]

What it actually means to "be yourself"

One particular thing that has been holding me back from approaching girls is that I make assumptions about her current status or what she’s thinking depending on the environment and the people she is with.

From the Improv Handbook…Keep this in mind the next time you are scared to approach a girl. Children approach playing games, or doing exercises or being given the chance to try something new, very differently from adults. Children approach these situations with one mission, and that mission is to have lots of turns. They sometimes actually […]
