Thanks, I definitely need to work more on it for sure tho, still lots of anxiety and embarassment around approaching sometimes.Success rates are subjective. How you view success is different than the next person. I say you having the cojones to cold approach and having a meaningful conversation (regardless of contact or no contact) is a success. That is much farther than most men that too intimated to cold approach.
Getting a contact is a very relative success as most women will give out their contact without a genuine intention to connect further.
However, getting the 1st date out of that cold approach is a sure success (regardless of 2nd or 3rd date). Because that means that whatever conversation you had was meaningful enough to intrigue her imagination and interest in making the effort to get to know you.
Now going back to how I started, just having the cojones to cold approach, perfecting your "game", building that confidence is a success within of itself.
The bottom line is that nowadays is so hard to connect with a stranger that we simply don't dare to have a conversation without having an agenda and that it is a numbers game. Just accumulate those numbers with the mentality that you are learning not that you are going to get laid. But that is just me.
