I saw you at Yoshinoya Crenshaw. You a beautiful Latina. Me a tall White guy. I would defiantly like to get to know you more. You were with someone so I didn’t approach.
I’m a 21 year old guy and I’ve already got a criminal record with multiple felonies. I don’t have a good job or anything really. I just don’t even know what to do with myself anymore. I know girls really wouldn’t probably be interested either. What should I do?

I had a rough college experience. I had a not so good home situation, some bad friends that pushed me around and did some not so good things to me. I had an even worse financial situation, and I had some shitty experiences with some girls.
Needless to say, I was a nervous trainwreck, and I was fucking weird. Not exactly Casanova material.
It wasn’t until recently I kind of shed the weird tendencies and chilled out.
Anyways, I just graduated and am about to go into my career.
The way I see it, most guys either start meeting girls or fine tuning their social skills in high school, or they start actually having relationships or flings in college.
They might graduate, and there are a few good years of messing around before people hit that “25 year old” mark and start getting married and having families.
I’m only a few years away from that mark, and I feel like I still have a lot to learn in terms of dating women, but also about myself in terms of what I want out of relationships.
So by the time I actually get a real grip on this dating thing, I’m afraid to find I want to go through the college “bone everything” phase, while a bunch of people are wanting to settle down.
Or maybe I wont want that, but not having gone through that phase I won’t be that experienced when I meet someone I want to stay with long term.
Can you kind of make up that lost ground when you’re older?

So today I had my first Day 2 from a direct cold approach (I had some “dates” from cold approach before but it was more indirect). I stopped a girl on the street and I was like “Hey are you from this city? I just moved here and thought you looked really cute so I just had to talk with you… some small conversation and then… hey so I’m going to have to find a girlfriend now that I live here so how about you be my girlfriend and then you can show me around the city (cheeky smile)” So she laughs and is like “ok maybe we can be friends and then see” So I say we should meet up for coffee together and get her number and text her and set a date to meet up for coffee a week later.
So I meet her at a coffee shop about a five minute walk from my place. As soon as she shows up I compliment her on her dress and tell her she looks very cute today (it was kinda obvious she dressed up for me). So I make my direct intent very obvious from the start. The problem with coffee shops though is that you end up sitting across from the girl rather than next to her. So I’m sitting across from her and I’m trying to do some physical things to “spike up the temperature” after a few minutes of conversation but it feels really hard with this table in between us.
Like I’m talking about how you can read people’s “energy” by holding their hands and then I’m like let me see your hands and I hold both of her hands with my hands and look into her eyes and say I’m going to tell you about yourself. Then I tell her how I can tell that she is a good person, and how her friends rely on her, and how she is shy but has a hidden adventurous side, and how I think she is really cute, and how her hands are very cold so I’m going to hold her hands to keep them warm… but then the damm table is just too big so it doesn’t feel right to keep holding hands with her in that awkward position. Then after some more small talk I decide to shift back into escalating and compare hand sizes and then hold hands with her again across the table and after a few seconds feels awkward so have to break the physical connection.
So at this point I know that I haven’t built enough physical comfort to ask her to hang out at my place yet so I’m like lets go for a walk in the park and I want to show her a spot with a really nice view of the ocean. So we walk to the park about five minutes in the opposite direction and I take her to a sort of quiet spot and tell her hey lets sit down on this bench and relax. So now I’m sitting next to her and start doing more hand holding things and now it feels perfectly natural. I put my arm around her and pull her close and I’m holding her hand while telling her I’m taking applications for girlfriends right now and would she like to apply? lol. So then I knew she had to leave by a certain time and my time was almost up so I tell her to close her eyes for a second and give her a kiss before she had to leave.
Lesson of the day: Sitting next to a girl is important if you want to escalate physically. I’m pretty sure if I had sat next to her in the coffee shop I could have physically escalated and made her feel comfortable and then whispered in her ear about going to hang out at my place and watch a movie and she would have probably went for it, rather than taking her to a park where nothing much could really happen.
I got a lot of good ideas from this video I was kinda trying to follow his method: [https://youtu.be/JEptbIHCfP0](https://youtu.be/JEptbIHCfP0)
Your guys ideas and feedback in appreciated!
