I have had success in opening and running game where I can warm opening/approaching because I'm easily able to interact since it's in a social setting such as a club or party.
The problem I get is when I cold open and approach in places such as malls.
Here's a scenario that I commonly got recently when I went to the mall.
-Kheaven: "Hi, excuse me, but can I get your opinion on something?"
-HBs: "Yeah, sure."
-Kheaven: "Do I look gay?" (Gay opener)
-HB: "No/Yes, why?" *Almost Always Laughs*
-Kheaven: "(Story about being hit on by gay guy) and I was wondering why this guy would approach me if he had not thought I was gay."
-HB: *Usually Laughs* "Well, you don't look gay."
(At this point I have no idea how to transition)
-Kheaven: "Well, thanks." (Interaction Ends At This Point)
