    I was out the other night and a girl came up to me and started chatting. Now I'm really bad with strangers in general, so when it's an attractive girl, I'm the worst. She was showing signs of interest, but I was just so intimidated, because it's rare I get approached by any woman, let alone a good looking one. She was asking me all sorts of questions about my life, but I was asking very little about her, and not making a great deal of eye contact. When she finished her cigarette and said she was off back to her friends, I was very quick to say "alright, nice to see you!" and get out of there.

    She was being really nice and friendly but I felt like I was just keeping my guard up. And of course I didn't ask for her number,

    Just chalk it up to experience. She probably thought you were aloof or that you didn't have great chat.

    It's a learning process-you'll get better at it.

    Sounds like you came across as uninterested, not rude.

    You just missed a glaring opportunity. well it could have been worse, at least you didn't punch her in the face.

    As I've said many times before, romance truly is the survival of the fittest.

    Don't let it bring you down though - learn from the experience and move on. Firm handshake, smile, casual interest, playful flirting and a joke here and there.
