Mostly boring night on Thursday. I went to my penthouse club, walked around, the only set I see is four girls. I’m really not in the mood for it. I mostly just want to listen to house music and dance. So I go lean on the railing for a second, and a girl appears to my right. She’s alone! I haven’t had the chance to talk to a girl alone since I started this 30 day challenge almost a week ago. Tina is from London, she’s visiting New York but she says she likes Toronto more. I tell her she’s crazy. We chat for another minute then she says she has to find her friend and she leaves.

Two reflections on what happened here. The first is that my introduction was too forced. I introduced myself then sort of demanded her name, like I was a cop or something. I immediately felt how weird that was and I realize I need to not do it again. Second, when she went to leave, what I should have said was “introduce me to your friend” and we could have continued talking.

That was my night. Half an hour later I tried opening two women but they paid as much attention to me as I pay to homeless men asking for change. What actually turned out to be the most interesting part of the night was seeing two different groups of models going to the club, and the guys who were with them. The guys looked cool. The girls were stunning.

I’m going to get there. I don’t know how long it will take me, nor does it matter. It’s going to happen.
