    Exclamation Need help with my comebacks

    So the other day i was talking to this girl, who i had a fallen out with (ive spoken about her on this site), anyways the topic of Game Of Thrones came up and books. We had a chit-chat and i told her that i write short stories and was trying to write a book. So i ask her what should i try writing about. "Throw me a lifeline" i told her. Her response was "assassin that goes straight and give up the life" (she is into alot of street literature like Donald Goines)

    I responded that she had awhile imagination. she smiled and said not really. we went ahead and talk about her job and other stuff. i would like to know how can i incorporate C&F to this a bit and have better comebacks

    That's something I sometimes forget about. Sometimes you don't need to do any pua stuff. I mean you did ask her about her opinion for a book for you to write and she answered. You shouldn't need a comeback for that. Just tell her thank you and with switch the topic or go deeper, talking about the character of the book and different plot and stuff like that. Sometimes you just need to calm down and talk to her without gaming if you ask her a serious question and she answers you.
    You lose some you win some, learn from your mistakes and get better!

    Yes you don't want to over think it. Also you don't want to come off as trying too hard. You can be a wise guy and give answers that suggest you don't care too much about pleasing her or trying to give typical answers but it should flow naturally and you don't want to think too much about it. If something cocky and funny comes out of your mouth then fine. If not then don't lose any sleep over it. Just remember to try to say things that will keep her on her toes and not the usual nice guy trying to please her kind of answers. That said you don't always want to come across like a total d*ck.

    I think the obvious answer would be,"Wow, you must be really into (some author)." Or "Man, that's a little on the cliche side lol. Well, let's see... Is there anything that is special about this assassin person?"

    With my second response, it's more of a rhetorical question. You take her basic concept and embellish it. If she is creative she will play along which women love to do.

    So in a way you are giving mixed signals... you are teasing her because you called it cliche but you are also stating the idea MAY have merit depending on what else she can think of (or even better, how BOTH of you together can make it better).

    Btw... Assassin who runs a pet store or rescue. Totally loves animals but doesn't mind killing people. Animals are innocent, people are cruel. Maybe his drunk step dad once beat his only friend to death, which was a puppy. Part of what makes assassin guy (or girl) tick.

    Feel free to use that. Tell her you worked up some characteristics of her basic scenario. See what happens!Have fun!

    Or you can ask her to give this assassin qualities and characteristics. She's most likely going to end up projecting the qualities of a man she's after. It's like the cube but you skipped the rest of the steps and you went to her ideal man.


    EDIT: If she likes a psychotic killer with a heart, yeah, it's not working :/

    Well man don't have any examples for the given situation but I do struggle with this same thing as well. Basically when it comes to approaching females and even dealing with females I had falling outs with as well I noticed I never really do have solid comebacks.

    The girls reactions shock the heck out of me so I am not really ready a lot of times for the curveballs they throw at me. I was dealing with this chick I had a falling out with not too long ago and I didn't expect her to like my opener since she was avoiding me for the longest time then I gave her a good opener "I saw you on FB and you were looking fine." "haha you're funny." she said which pretty much made my night but I should have been like "I know I am." and instead went into something else.

    I miss key points like this all the time. For instance another broad from a store said to me "So...." she was hitting on me since I was buying a shirt and not even trying to run anything on her. So I talked about my job and my promotion in a very boring way but still got her closed on FB. I should have played with it and said "Soo... yes I guess that's a hint for something?"

    Anyway I have really good comebacks for re-appraoches cuz I eject and then re-approach after a hard rejection with a good comeback. But I noticed in the moment I am rarely witty and often times want to be funny but end up looking like a douche who is trying too hard.

    Either way I like Julien RSD says "Act like everything you say is the sh!t" because for one half the time I act like what I am saying is not approved or boring and it ends up being boring or dumb. But when I am in state acting like what I am saying is the sh!t (without trying) due to a positive Mindset I am killing it and making them have fun along with myself. I guess it doesn't matter anymore as far as if they approve but just to be aware of this and act like what I say is the sh!t (know it and not fake it) and then it should all balance out. Regardless the comebacks come when I am acting cool and not needy.

    To the root of the problem:

    You guys seem to be talking about "falling outs" as if they need a "falling in." They don't. I fall out with 99% of the people I come into contact with. This includes everybody: friends, ex's, family, anyone and everyone that was in my life and now is not. Don't try to separate women from the rest. Your goal should be holistic market value, not just value to women.

    Your conversations will be awkward. Good. The dynamic will feel uncomfortable for those involved and even those surrounding you. Awesome. There's a reason for this, and the reason is clear once you walk away.

    If you feel like sh*t, they became better than you.
    If they feel like sh*t, you became better than them.
    If you both have an awkward Tension but feel good, then you're both moving up, just in different directions.
    If you both feel like sh*t, I don't know. I don't know what it's like to simultaneously move down in market value with someone else.

    But your goal when a situation obligates you to interact with someone you had a falling out with is this: To walk away with them knowing (and you not having to tell them) that you're awesome, still moving up the awesome ladder, and will ultimately reach the epitome of awesomeness.

    This is assuming that you're the one calling the shots. I think you all know my stance on getting your ex back. Lol
