    Default Stuck with the obstacle...

    I know it's ideal for me to talk to groups and have my wingman to talk to the obstacles while I talk to the target... however, there's times when my wingman is busy talking to a girl and I have to go at it alone. When this happens sometimes one of the obstacles distract me with a question or something and meanwhile the rest of the group starts talking among themselves. Now I'm stuck talking to the obstacle... How do I reengage the target? Also how do I go from talking to the group to talking to the target one on one? I know the standard, " I'm alienating your friend etc." but that doesn't really go with my style of approaching...

    I'd be interested in hearing others' advice on this. Here's a few I've run across or come up with:

    Deferring the obstacle:
    • "Wait your turn, Ms. Interrupty-pants."
    • "Hang on a second, I'll be with you in a minute. I'm talking to your friend here [the target] and there's only so much of me to go around."


    Be careful with these. Teasing the obstacle may attract them to you.

    Re-engaging the target:
    • "So what were you saying? I think you were talking about yourself."
    • "I'm glad we had this conversation.[ subtle sarcasm, highlighting that you were interrupted]"
