A fine example of being an approach monkey

Posted: May 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

I was saying in my last post how I need to (temporarily) become an approach monkey in order to help with my AA. Last night when out and about on Oxford street, I noticed an example of just this in action.

I saw a bloke run up to an 8 and open her. It wasn’t a technically proficient approach as he failed to stop her and kept walking with her. About 30 seconds into set and a 9 walks by in the other direction. Another 30 seconds goes by and this guy gets blown out. He must have spotted the 9 while he was still in set with the 8, because as soon as he got blown out he immediately gave chase, despite the fact she was 50 meters behind him by then.

The most important thing I took from this was the fact that despite the street being quite busy and him bouncing from one set to another, no one apart from me noticed him. This is important because my biggest source of anxiety at the moment is the thought of passersby watching me open. This could help me internalise the truth: no one else gives a fuck if I open a girl on the street.
