Today, I felt like drinking a beer and none of my friends was available, so I went into the pub by myself. There were a couple of guys at the counter and I sat down for a beer and a chat. When they started to bore me, I spotted a group of three girls and one lame looking guy.
I strolled over and said that I was being bored to death by the old guy, mind if I join them? I asked them a couple of questions, like 'did you come out of college or from work', etc. The girls leaned back and said nothing, the guy basically evaded the questions. There wasn't any connection, so I just said 'Alright, I won't bother you any further', and finished my drink at the counter.
Obviously, that wasn't a successful approach... Any tips on how to deal with this kind of situation?
