Remember, it’s all the other person’s got to go on; they can’t read your facial expressions, so it’s incredibly important. Put the other person at ease Let the other person know that you’re really happy to be speaking to them, and relax them by commenting on their conversational skills.For example, when they ask a question say something like ‘Now that’s an interesting thought…’.
There used to be a time when from time to time I'd get a girl's phone number, and then I'd never talk to her again. But, unlike so many other occasions back then, I soldiered on and forced myself to make the call.
I took out my phone, and went to put it away; I knew if I didn't call her then, I'd never call her.
Making that first phone call to a girl felt like the hardest thing in the world to do. There was a beautiful girl I'd met at a nightclub one night in the summer of 2006 with whom I swapped numbers, and, thinking about it the next day, I was almost too nervous to call.
The phone Cooper used, if you could call it that, weighed a staggering 1.1kg and measured in at 228.6x127x44.4mm.
With this prototype device, you got 30 minutes of talk-time and it took around 10 hours to charge.
You’d need a couple of thousand pounds to get hold of one, and even then performance wasn’t great.
