#2. Don’t Mumble
For heaven’s sake, speak up! Especially if you’re in a noisy bar. You might have the best opening line in the world but if she never hears it, what good is it? It’s better if you’re too loud when talking to a girl than it is to be too quiet. If you need to, practice projecting.
Stand in front of a mirror and speak loudly. Note how it feels in your chest and diaphragm. That’s how you know you’re doing it right. Now, of course, if you’re literally walking down the street or you see a beautiful girl in the aisle of your favorite bookstore, you’re not going to walk up and start yelling, but you will want to speak clearly and at a volume that communicates confidence.
