Re: Opening when sarging solo ideas?
Don't worry dude, I do the same thing all the time. I can say that I usually have more fun when I'm riding solo than when I have to deal with the people around me.
Anyways, I have two bits of advice for you that can really get you rolling with your social game.
The first bit is nouning. Nouning is when you pick out a noun in a person's sentence in order to continue the interaction. For example, you ask:
"So what college do you go to?"
And her response is as follows:
"I go to Purdue University, my plan is to major in International Business"
Now you have two different nouns to work from. You either have Purdue, or you have her major. Either one will allow you to build up a conversation off of that. The only important thing is to not start going on a question train with her. Keep it flowing and interesting.
The second bit is observing the details around you. If you are out solo sarging, keep in mind what is going on around you. For example, if you are in a restaurant, and it is nearly empty, there is a conversation topic right there. Start up a tangent off of that.
Details are always important in conversation. Too much can be a killjoy, so don't observe every grain of sand on the beach. But be mindful of the beach itself and what is going on currently, past and in the future on the beach. That is how you can carry a good conversation.
