Dante the newbie

Hi guys,
I am new to this forum. I recently bought MM and The Game and found out about the PUA community. I have seen 21 summers so far, I live and study in NYC. I am a complete newbie when it comes to talking with girls, I lack the confidence (I am 6"4') but still something is missing there. I use subway and Staten Island a lot and get some IOI from girls without even talking to them. Thing is, I'm afraid of talking with women and girls. I am glad i Found this forum. Gl to all fellow pua and newbies
