Practice: Body Posture/Body Language/Breaking the State

I have been working on my body posture this week. Chest up, long wide strides, being slow and deliberate, I don't quite have it down or really know what I am doing, but in the process I have noticed some strange habits. I yawn when passing-by women I want to talked to, I rub my right eye when pass-by a woman who I thought was cute far away, but not so cute up close. I slouch when passing by older women (60+). I actually lift my neck up when passing by taller women.

Now, what does this all mean to me. Well, I definitely have to maintain my composure. Practice, practice, practice. It also got me thinking about my posture and body language during sarges. I know that I have tendency to peck, I have been working on that, pretty much just leaning back on the bar or in a chair. What I have not incorporated in my sarges is body rocking, I guess I need to see it in person to really get an idea of what is all is about.

I have done a great job of breaking other people states, meaning you know when someone is walking by and you say 'Good Morning', but you don't get a response because you either mumbled it or said it to soft. It like any approach you have to go in with an higher energy than the other person. I still find it quite shocking that you can actually break someone state of mind or interrupt a conversation by going in at a higher energy than other person or the group.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. I'm hitting up Saki and Anzu's tonight.

how have your results been at bigger venues like Love, H2O and FUR? You sound like you only frequent the smaller bars and clubs.
