Does anyone else get stressed out to the point where their heart is racing when preparing to call someone for the first time that you met on a dating site? I passed over around ten women last year because I keep wimping out when I get to the point of getting their number.

A little tip I've picked up when on the phone is to hold a pencil out in front of you. People tend to get very nervous on the phone, and as a result the voice tends to become very monotone and very disinteresting for the other person. What you'll notice is that by following the movement of the pen, your voice changes accordingly. It sounds ridiculous, but just try holding it above your eye level and you will notice your voice has a higher pitch which is often perceived as enthusiasm.
