I'm finding myself more and more on the dance floor these days and am looking for some less creepy ways to open other than mentioning paraphernelia or clothing.
"This song is awesome!" Fail.
"Is that your boy behind you?" Epic fail, and de-alphatizing.
"Yo, I'm into you." This actually got her attention but her BF was grinding her at the time.
The approach and grab technique from the front is usually creepy.
Grinding from the back sometimes is effective but without verbally opening it's doomed.
I think the best approach is to pretend it's not a dance floor and resort to the usual bar routine. Perhaps focusing on the group she's with on the D floor is one area for topics. Thoughts?
