This is a huge hole in my game. After I do the intro, conversation tends to fizzle out. I'm not trying to waste time, I'm trying to get to know a person and be genuine.
What do I talk about? Please don't tell me to ask her what kind of movies she likes.
I'm especially interested in what Pimpin has to say.
Also, I've noticed that I've been relying on other guys to get conversation out of girls. For example, I'll be sitting at a bar and some other guys will be asking her about her daughter, which will then give me a topic of conversation asking about how old her daughter is and go from there. This is not a good long-term plan. How could I get this information without going into interview mode?
I have noticed sometimes that I will be deluding myself into thinking I have a chance with a girl, only to find out down the road that she is a lesbian or has a long-term boyfriend and two kids.
