    Default An IOI is an IOI is an IOI is an IOI?

    I get that an ioi is an IOI. If she smiles at you, laughs at one of your stupid jokes, and for the more professional in this game, just a simple glance at you works just as well. But I think we can all agree that there are different types of IOI's. There are strong IOI's and small IOI's. How exactly can you work with a small IOI. Say a total stranger just looks at you and she smiles from just a few feet away. How do you work with that? What would be the next move?

    Whether you get an ioi or not, if you see a nice girl you want to get to know better, go up and start talking! It's just a bit more reassuring when you get a nice big IOI!

    The small ioi could be an invitation to approach, that's how i look at it.
    You lose some you win some, learn from your mistakes and get better!

    Go direct and call her out on it.

    PUA "Whoa! Hey there, did we just share a "moment"?

    Girl "What do you mean?"

    PUA "Well I happened to notice you were looking me over like a piece of cheesecake."

    She'll deny and try to reframe. Just hold the frame and rib her about cheesecake. I used this once and actually took her out for a cheesecake instadate. Women find it hard to resist good cheesecake.

    Always have some standard openers prepared. If your new at this, memorize some meme or something that is fun. If she's wearing a shirt or clothing that's interesting, then mention it. It can be a minor ioi from you because she already smiled at you... You are returning the favor. But don't go overboard. Something along the lines of,"you know, I was just thinking when you smiled at me that red really works for you, but I think a lighter shade would be way better." This type of approach confirms you noticed her smile and are responding to that and it's also a backhanded compliment in a way because you made a suggestion about her looks.

    Truthfully, it almost doesn't matter what you say as long as you approach and act cool, indifferent and friendly. Then after she starts talking, you can amp up the attraction (disqualifiers, future projection etc...)

    The more you just throw yourself in there, the more you aaproach, the easier it becomes to strike up a convo.

    Be sure to give a little smile back as well. If she smiles at you, and her eyes don't go up or side to side, then go over there and talk to her. Best have a few openers ready.
