A lonesome doe (tall and cute) walked in to local watering hole I rarely frequent but ended up at this past friday night. She walked to the bar right next to me (I was sitting with my friends drinking) and sort of turned her back. Initially I thought a typical AFC thought - what a Btch! turning her back. But then I remembered Strauss text and how mystery interprets this as girl waiting to be opened.
I walked around to the front of her just at an angle from the bar and this transpired:
me: well don't you look lost (smiled)
chic: (face turns red and she starts doing that fixing hair thing nervously)
me: (started laughing) yeaa? (then motion to my hair the same way as if I was mocking her fixing her hair)
chic: what's your name? ( laughing)
(I think the mocking made her system malfunction lol)
me: subtle (gave her real name)
chic: I'm rachael
me: Rachael I've never seen you here (funny thing is I never even go to this place lol)
chic: I don't come here often I'm meeting some friends (she's fidgeting in her coat locking eyes with me which was creepin me out lol)
me: what are you doing? (reached for her fore arm which paralyzed her but then she gave it freely)
chic: (bringing nothing from her coat then she smiled and said I was trying to get my cigarettes)
me: lets go outside
chic: k (smiling)
Ok, She asked for my name then I gave it. I just told myself at this point she wanted me. "Knowing this" I decided to take a big risk by gently grabbing for her arm. When she gave it to me smiling I felt all the work was done with the approach. I talked with her outside trying to deduce real topics from her. I was trying to honestly get to know her so there was little game being played unless you call it qualification (her to me). She seemed ok I suppose. No Kiss close but number closed. She texted me the next day.
In summary, I think reading her ioi's was the key to this number closing. Without the reading I may have disregarded her for turning her back. After interpreting the non verbals I just wanted to play around a bit. She gave me that opportunity by fidgeting so much. Whether she was nervous or not I can only assume. In assuming I used that to mount my attack by "mocking her" playfully. I'd imagine with the IOI's given one may think to do everything else differently but I have been playing to a philosophy of I'm the captain here. I want her to be waffling on the idea if I like her or not when she leaves. The more I can keep her on that line the more I can figure out who she is which in turn will allow me to decide if she is worth the long haul. I am a AFC aspiring to be a PUA for the purpose of finding a long term mate so I am always keeping that in mind here. And consider that when reading and critiquing my "game". I gladly accept critique and encourage it!! I always like to get better and feel I have ways to go.
