    Default Critique my "are you okay" opener

    Okay so last night my friend was having a party and there was a girl there wearing designer ripped up jeans. So later in the night I walk up to her and said:

    Me: omg are you okay?
    Her: what do you mean?
    Me: your jeans look like you just fell into bushes or something.
    Her: (smile) nooo they've been like that all night.

    I really didn't know how to follow it up after that so it died out pretty quick, what do you guys think I should have said after that, and do you guys think that's a good opener? Not sure if it's been used before but I just thought of it on the spot.

    That's a pretty cool opener. My version would be:

    Me: (acting shocked) omg are you okay?
    HB: blah blah
    Me: You look like you were just attacked by a lion.

    It's a little more silly, but yours is fine.

    Remember openers are suppose to get the into a social/talking mood. You got her to respond, but not into a social mood. Come from this angle are you can come up with something. This is just off the top of my head so these aren't the best:

    "This is why I let someone else buy jeans for me"

    "You have a nice smile. But your jeans kind of ruin this kodak moment."

    thats a good opener IMO, you got her attention and she responded with a smile and continued to talk ..
    but IMO you should use at least 3 lines being mysterious after being shocked and saying "OMG".. like the "How i Met Your Mother" Pickup line but a little less excagerate :P

    me: uh, exscuse me, has any1 ever told youOMG!
    her: what?!
    me: *gives cell to a friend* [she doesnt know you guys r friends] hurry call an ambulance!
    her: [blah blah]
    friend: why, what happened to her?! *acting shocked*
    me : [answering you friend] i Think she got some internal bleeding, probably some fractures..she had a terrible fall
    her: NO, i havent! what are you talking about?
    me: Really? cause i could swear you fell str8 outta heaven, ANGEL *wink* *BIG smile*

    ____________________ _________

    ok!, dont use the one i said :P its way too excagerate, but you get the point and how i kept her saying what!? for 3 lines .. btw its only MY Opinion of the 3 lines.. there might be others who say its way too much or something..

    The 3 line thing stringing her along is great but that exactly is way too needy and far to many people watch how i met your mother for that to work well. Plus its AFC.

    The opener gja is not bad at all. But you should have follwed with a dhv story like already stated. It was good though otherwise.

    If your into negs you could have said something such as:

    "Oh my why would you wear those jeans around people? I mean they look ok I guess but I pegged you to be a lady of class. Well we cant always be right."

    Then go into a DHV story.

    haha i know its not good, thats why in bottom i said "dont use this one" it was just a summary of the how i met your mother pickup line, because it was way longer .. i only posted it, to give an example of a 3 liner instead of 1

    anyways, i like your neg there

    btw @dja dont focus that much on the opener, a simple "hey" or something non elaborate will work most of the times aswell, than use your negs during the convo itself

    I prefer, are you ok? After looking at the expression on your face I thought you were constipated.

    So many people give "theoretical" advice on openers based on all the information they read on-line and other pick-up programs without actually having experience and coming from a place of knowing what REALLY makes a good opener. Because if they actually had experience and were not just regurgitating what they have learned in books, DVD's and CD's then they would know what you say in your opener maybe makes up 2% of how successful it will be.

    If you do not care about which way the outcome goes, you know your a catch, your confidence is based on how you view yourself not what others think, and your being playful in a cheeky way to find out if she is worth your time and energy and see if she plays along, then pretty much anything works, no matter how corny some people might tell you it is. Its ALL about the frame your coming from, your beliefs and attitudes, not the opener you use. Its about having fun, and giving her an opportunity to join in on the fun, and give her the opportunity to get to know you. Your doing her the favour of talking to her to begin with, you dont have to prove anything to her, she is the one who needs to prove herself to you because if she doesnt, you will move on and choose another hot girl who's worthwhile. Thats the key to starting a conversation and having good momentum of energy right from the start, it also makes the conversation feel natural to both of you right from the beginning.

    Once I realised its your attitude of you not needing their approval at all and you having your own fun (especially if its at her expense) - you can say anything. Once you get that belief in, you can say the craziest things and have it work. You can even accuse a girl for farting (I have seen a friend do this and ended up with the girls number - not once, but twice!), because its so far from what we have been taught throughout our lives about what's acceptable and what works, its hard to believe even when you see it happen right in front of your eyes, but then after a while, you just learn to accept that anything is possible.
