So, I just want to share with you guys how my typical game looks like. Of course every girl, every set, every approach is different, but I'm focusing on patterns, and steps, routines that I like to follow, because these things usualy works for me. I've been doing this for couple of months, so it's still under development, but I'm courious about your opinion - and maybe it could be helpful for somebody as well. I have to add that I almost always game this way in pubs and bars.
As for me, I like open girls in an indirekt way, or some kind of combination of direct/indirect open. As you can see, I'm still an aspiring PUA, and I know that I have to learn and become better in a lot of field of picking up girls, one of it is te group and set openings. I don't open sets very ofter, but when I do, I usualy don't use any madeup lines - I just go there, say hi with a smile, notice one thing about the girls and ask, or talk about is. For example: "You must be ...(a profession, a field of study, a part of the city where they are from, anything that come up in my mind). There are some cases when I opened a set with the joke "You know that 97% of girls masturbate under shover and 3% is singing a song?" - it cracks the ice.
What I like much more is approaching girls alone. You must have heard that the world's most effective openings are "Hello" and "Hi". When I entered the pub, I usually walk confident, with a big smile, and give at least 2 or 3 hello or hi to girls - even if they are in a set. If anyone smile back, say anything, I just approach her. The more effective way in a crowded pub, if I stand by a wall or sitting at a table with my friends, just talking, and when a girl, or girls pass by, just say hi to her/them. If she smiled back, say hi back, don't follow her, just stay cool and calm, saying "hey you, come back" or "girl, introduce yourself, it's the polite thing to do" - so I don't follow them, let them come to me.
I guess this is my favourite thing to do: just notice a girl, nod, way a bit or say hi to her - and when there is any feedback, just approach.
Otherwise, I like opening, as I said, with something that I just noticed on her, or ask her an indirect question or something. After the answer, I use this method: not ask, but state something about her, due to what she answer, how she behave etc. It carries forward the conversation.
Of course when nothing come to my mind, I also use simple openings, one of my favourite is: "Oh, you look so cute, I adopt you as my little sister"
I like carrying forward conversation with not asking but stating, as I mentioned. I always state something about her - her name, her job, what she is studying. I especially love stating "You must be studying to become a psychologist (it's qute popular in my country, and I can carry forward the conversation to ESP, mindgames and routines etc. from that) or jurnalist (I'm a journalist, I could talk about it, have some funny story about it, and great way to dhv).
Depends on how she reacts, I just go with the flow, run some jokes and have a nice convo OR run routines. I use ESP in the beginning of the conversation usualy. Ask her to think of a number from 1 to 4, but doesn't tell me - and then continued conversation as we do before, just like nothing has happened. A few moments later: "3, you picked 3, right?". If I guess right, it's great, if I'm not, not problem. "Now, think of one number from 1 to 10." - continued with an entirely different topic, than out of nowhere: "7, it was 7, right?" If I guess right, great, if not, it's also great: "You are not an ordinary girl, Miss. Most of girls pick 7" - so I reward her IOIs, because when she plays this game with me, it's an ioi.
I like using routines in my own way - I always form them to fit to my personality and my game. I never just started a game, do a magic trick or anything, because it could look fake and made-up. I make a story around it, possible DHV with it, and start the routine in this way. I could tell a dozens of examples, but don't want to make this thread even longer lol.
One of my favourite routine is the 5 question - 5 fake false answer. I usualy run it in somewhere the middle of the conversation: when I've already build some attraction, and the girls is in relative comfort.
My opinion is that when you feel so good with a girl, and the conversation is just great, you clicked to each other - that's when you have to close: # or K. One of my favourite way to get to this hilltop is the cube. I've mentioned it several times in other threads, that I find this routine incredible effective - if you run it great.
I run it only when I know she is in comfort and she is attracted to me. Then, I tell her to close her eyes, put her hand in my hand or in my shoulder, saying "don't worry, I'm not gonna leave you here, I'm not gonna steal your beer/purse etc." So in this way, during the whole routine (that is like 5-8 minutes), we are in physical touch - great KINO. As I said, I like making a story or something around the routine, so I usualy ask her what kind of mobile she has, what computer she use. If IPod and Mac, I say "You must know the background wallpaper of Windows, it's like the best known natural photo of the world. You know, the one with blue sky, perky clouds, green hills and stuff." I tell her to picture it in her mind and imagine herself there. I run the cube, tell her to open her eyes and just say: "So, am I right in some points?" or "I was guessing right, wasn't I?". I always got great responses, so I close her in this point, saying something like: "Ok, you are fun/nice/cute, but you are here with your friends, i'm here with mines. I'm fun too, so give me your number, we are going to grab a coffee and continue it sometimes".
Of course I don't want to detail all part of my game, but I also use negs, tell DHV-filled stories, rewerd her IOIs and things like that.
Any advice, thoughs are welcomed.
