    Default Unique one, but it's been working

    This one is a little bit harder to do right, because it requires an alligator blood stained shoe. Luckily for me, my Nubuck shoes have a huge spot on the from when I was gator hunting a few weeks ago (I'm in Canada, no one gator hunts in Canada).


    I walk up with the shoes ON. Find the hottest girl working a shoe store at whatever mall I may be.

    I straight up ask how to remove the stain, the second they hear alligator hunting, they forget about everything and focus on that.

    They don't even notice me bringing up the Kino levels.

    Then I tell them I'm in a rush, but I could tell them all about it over coffee tomorow. Hand them my phone for them to put in their number. And voila.



    I guess the point of this is to have something unique going on. Something with a story behind it. It's peacocking I guess, but not superficially like having a spinning light up belt buckle that cries : Pay attention to me.




    Any thoughts of how I could improve on this?

    Its not a bad opener but may work if the girl is already interested, maybe not but how about introducing yourself and running game.

    One other thing is bringing this story after opening a set.

    I'm pretty interested in this "gator hunting"! Sounds like a bad ass hobby if you ask me.

    I actually really like this opener. It's a good way to grab her attention immediately and has the capability of transitioning into a solid conversation.

    I deer hunt a lot so I may try something along those lines, unfortunately deer hunting is nearly as cool/interesting as alligator hunting lol

    There are so many problems with this, I don't even know where to begin. So I'll just throw out the problems in no particular order:

    1) This opener is so specific that it will only work with one class of women (women in shoe stores).
    2) This class of women just happen to be women who are working and probably are busy trying to make a dollar. This is double true if they are working on commissions.
    3) The opener is self-centered and gives the woman nothing to talk about herself or express her opinion on anything other than cleaning shoes.
    4) The plan assumes she'll be interested in hearing about your gator hunting stories, but why would she? You've done nothing to create attraction. She's busy working. You're asking her a question about cleaning shoes that has no apparent value to her.
    5) You assume you're going to be able to Kino because she'll be SOOOOOO interested in your story, but you fail to realize that she's working and likely has a manager or supervisor watching her every move.

    I saw your other post about gator hunting. You're so caught up in the fact that you went gator hunting and you have one great story that you think you can ride that. You can't. People don't care about what you've done unless you give them a reason to care.

    You want to use the gator hunting story properly? Use it as a dhv story. That's a comes in the comfort/rapport stages, not the opening/attraction stages. It's a cool story, it sounds like you had a bunch of fun and you're proud of it. But listen, everyone has done something pretty cool at some point in their life. What you need to do is temper your expectations of where this story is going to take you with women, and instead, focus on developing relationships.

    Alright, thanks for the input guys.


    Duke:

    1) It is specific. A tailor made approach for a specific set of women. Nothing wrong with something calling on their "expertise".

    2)They were both working, but I wasn't there during peak hours, early mornings are dead for retail workers

    3) Actually, I agree with you on #3. However, one of them hunts moose and the other one's father is a hunter, they both volunteered this information. Which led to a longer conversation and helped build rapport. (It would have failed epicly if I got a PETA activist or a vegan )

    4) I fail to see the difference between this an picking up using peacocking. I've seen some PUAs looking absolutely ridiculous, it worked for them, but not with every girl.


    5) I hadn't thought of the whole manager thing. I'll keep that one in mind, don't want to get a girl fired just cause I am trying to pick her up. I used to work sales and have become good with reading body language, I judged my Kino levels by their reactions.

    The reason I'm using this story as opposed to one of the many others I have, is that it's the most recent. It has a short shelf life. and it's relevant to my approach. I didn't go into the first store with the intention of using the line, it just happened. Then I tested it intentionally at the next place.

    UPDATE: One of the girls backed out for evening coffee tonight. The other is texting me for a meeting point right now. Gonna go shoot some pool. She says she's horrible at it.

    well then it sounds like an excellent opener to use in canada.

    but anyway i prefer to use openers that are either completely fun or at least completely honest. no need to trick a girl into being interested in having a conversation with you.
