The 5 Second Rule, as it was explained to me, is how long you should lock eyes with the person you are interested in. It gives the "I'm interested" message very clearly and also is a strong badass "I'm not intimidated by you" move. Five seconds is way longer than you might think. It's honestly terrifying to jump into your own power like that.
Try we shall.
Last week, I did this at a party and the guy took my number. It was like a freaking magic trick.
I'd love to know how this goes for you! There, for sure, will be some stories to go with this one.
If you want to hear a little more about the 5 Second Rule and what happened when I tried it, you'll want to listen to the last episode of my podcast, Champagne & Snark, with the truly beautiful Dr. Michele Kerulis, Professor of Sport and Health Psychology and Counciling, owner of KCM Consulting. Translation: She's a bad ass with lots of brains. In this episode, we talked about intimidation. In fact, she was the one who taught me the 5 Second Rule!
