I'm almost hesitant to post some of these FRs. They're kind of depressing. Yikes. Good news is that I have some Day2s coming up that I scheduled last week, but damn I'm reading my own FRs and *Ouch*. But you know what... I promised a FR per day...
P.S. Obe, Toymachine, Johnnie Wolf, Quality, Albert... anyone... please post some success stories FRs.
09/09/07 – Sunday – Daygame / Union Square
Set 1: Vietnamese8
I see a Vietnamese8 at Starbucks. After 10 minutes of hesitancy...
Me: Do you go to Stern?
Her: No, I go to law school. I'm a 2nd year law student.
Me: Oh really? I thought you were a freshman at Stern.
Me: Do you know ___ ____? She went to Berkeley with me.
Her: Yeah, I do.
What should've happened is this.
I should've said
Me: Oh really? I thought you were a freshman at Stern. I'm a senior at Stern. Nice to meet you.
Her: Nice to meet you, too.
Me: Where are you from?
Her: Blah blah blah...
That one moment of hesistancy and stall... I lost it.
Oh well. Pat on the back for trying...
Set 2: Polish7
I'm at Union Square w/ Warren. A very cute Polish girl is sitting next to me. I open with something like "Hey, do you go to NYU?" Some banter, some plowing. Finds out shes waiting for her boyfriend that she met 3 weeks ago. She's only in NYC for one more month, so I decide to go for the number close. But she doesn't give. I offer her my number. Nothing. Oh well. 09/10/07 – Monday – Going out solo and coming back home with nothing.
Man, my FRs are getting kind of sad. After getting flaked on by a wing, I decide to go out solo. I hit up 2 venues, but no sets at all, and I just end up coming home...09/11/07 – Tuesday – Passing by Sets... Obsessing over Sets... and Union Square Sympathy Cheek Kiss-Close
I notice myself stalling and vulturing. I'm not following my 3-second rule. I probably passed up about 2-3 possible good sets today at school.
So I was feeling pretty miserable, so I knew I had to go out. The worse I feel, the more I have to go out.
I go to UnionSquare and open a 32-year-old6.5 who I thought was 22. We talk for a while. I end up being an emotional tamp-on, but she leaves and gives me a kiss on the cheek. I guess I'm a nice guy.
I approach another set but she ignores. She looked drunk and miserable. It's 1:55 AM right now and it's pretty awesome that I have Internet at the park. I'm waiting for Warren. He was supposed to be here an hour ago. Yes, I brought my laptop with me in a business bag.
