Been using the "shirt-opener" alot.
"Hey guys quick question, I've got a friend who's girlfriends birthday is coming up, and he's gonna buy her a shirt...but he doesn't know what size she is...so what's worse, getting a shirt too big or a shirt too small?"
Though I've gotten pretty good first reactions to the question, they always give an answer and doesn't kick me out, I've had big problems stacking to other conversation topics .
I do however think that body language and delivery is MUCH more important than having a good opener. Good openers doesn't save you from being kicked out if you look like a nervous loser geek.
Frankly,transition is not a problem at all,you just have to say something random to get their attention away from your opener,especially if it's an opinion opener.
You either look at one of the girls clothes and comment on it,associating with something or you just shoot a random : "Hey your dress is black your shoes are white,are you a Nurse ?"Random,you can then add a dhv about your ex being a nurse "I'm asking because my ex was a nurse too and she had a taste as bad as yours..."+neg....
Or sometimes i just say something like "You know,i look at your faces and it inspires me....I think I'm gonna adopt a crocodile...What do you think ?"
On topic : As for openers,i also like the situational openers you can come up with,it's more challenging and fresh,but i do use canned openers sometimes.
Come up infront, dance, take hand, give her a twirl, dance, after awhile , turn her and start grinding. Compliment her on her dancing if she dances nice (BEFORE GRINDING) and start game from there.
Talking from the chest and not the nose, best way to talk without shouting.
My most successful club night involved me talking to EVERYONE. I walked in, talked to the first group of people, spoke with confidence, and asked how their night was. Soon after that I was chatting to anyone that I saw, giving High 5s and hugs and the attention that I was receiving from women became incredible. I could tell if they were interested as the interest was blatant. From there on in, it was easy pickings.
Which shows me three factors;
1. Talk to anyone with confidence and 90% of the time, especially at a club, you'll get a decent response
2. Talk to people and others will notice you being friendly and then, when you approach them, they are far more likely to be receptive to you
3. When women aren't getting attention, but everyone else seems to be, they can get more needy of the attention and your value soars.
You just need confidence and a good couple of initial successful approaches and you'll be ok. Try talking to guys as well as women. That makes it look more like you're being friendly and less like you're just going there to pull, which you are but sometimes it pays not to show all your cards. Another good factor about talking to guys is that it opens more social circles, you aren't trying after them and so instead, you can get them to introduce you to their female friends. Get that happening and the women trust you more as you seemingly know their friends and so you must be ok.
All this in mind, you will still need skills of dealing k close, f close and n close, depending on what you are after.
Good advice gonna think more about this next time I'm out!
