I had an idea for a potentially awesome thread. Here is the deal, I would like people to post exactly one of their best, original techniques in this thread (Okay, you can post more than one, but please only one a post, and let other people post some techniques before you add another). The technique can be anything related to pick-up, but it should be something that, as far as you know, is something you invented and something you have field tested. It is totally fine to post something you have already shared before, as this will serve as a central repository for these great tips and techniques. Though great pick-up lines are allowed, I would prefer that this thread focus more on physical/psychological tips and techniques than entirely on clever word openings. My goal is that this thread will contain a bunch of awesome tools that will be immediately available to PUA's of all levels to help them boost their game. Little perks that might take someone years to pick-up by themselves.
Please also try to keep the comment/critiques on other posts, limited to the bottoms of your technique post.
One thing that can be very maddening on a first date/meeting, is getting around the table. It is natural for two people to take up the "interview" position at a table when they sit down. If you attempt to immediately sit next to the woman you are talking to, you either need to have immediately high Social Status or be really smooth otherwise it easily gets awkward. If you don't get around the table, it is difficult to escalate Kino quickly. So what's the trick? Make sure, that when you take the "natural" seating arrangement (across from each other), that you take the seat that gives you the least view of the other people around you. Then early on in the conversation bring up the topic of people watching. Either mention your love for it, or make a little game of trying to read/speak for people around the room. At this point, it is very easy to move yourself around next to the girl on the pretext of "wanting to be able to watch the other people better." Also, you have an easy, fun conversation started with all kinds of potential. Be sure to take advantage of the directional nature of the situation to put your arm around the girl and "point" her attention to an interesting group in the area. As a bonus tip: I find that is you can often elicit positive reactions by comparing the woman to other people around the room. For instance, "See the girl over there? You can totally tell that she wants that dude. I bet she has a naughty streak. I can totally see a bit of that in you!"
