My problem isn't approaching women, I opened probably 6 or 7 sets tonight (not a big venue) and I almost had 2 number closes but they suddenly got disinterested. Most of them went like this. :
PUA: hey, how's your night going?
target: great! Yours?
PUA: fine, it could be better.
PUA: this is my first time here, I came with the cocktail waitress and I don't really know anybody.
Target: well, I'm target. Fluff fluff fluff
And we had some nice chit chat and I guess I just didn't recognize IOIs or what.
What are some good conversation starters I can use? I'm not trying to seem douchy but not a nice guy, just someone pleasant but assertive, any tips for voice tone or a vocal patterns as well? Any help would be appreciated
