HB8 # close & free drink!
After reading some David X quotes that I believe Virgil posted, I felt inspired to go out with a slightly refined approach.
First bar of the night, I chatted up a group & immediately put my arms around two HBs, positive responses, lots of laughs, etc. I turn behind & see HB8 from class, (I was kicking my arse all week for not going for her number).
I do an over the shoulder, "Oh my God, what the he11 are you doing here?" She giggles with a "hi," and I say, "I thought you only hung out in libraries in your free time!" She then gets sassy & tells me how crazy she it, etc, fitting the frame I set for liking "party girls." I do a shoulder touch & gentle push, as I say, "You know what, nickname? You're kinda cute, I'll let you buy me a beer." She agrees & asks what I want, I neg her a bit on not knowing that beerx is the best. She giggles & hands it to me.
I have my phone out for Kino's Number Close & say I gotta catch up to my friends (ftc) but we should continue this convo & hang sometime, (as I type the number in) 555-...
She fills in the rest & says with a giggle, "By the way, my real name is insertnamehere, just so you know."
She leaves & at this point, I'm sober enough for conversation, but am having a hard time texting coherently, so I opened another group & told them my story, because I wanted to text "Hey, it's PUA, who is that hot guy you were just talking to?" The girls in this group thought it was cute, and one typed it for me, & I looked it over before hitting send.
That was Saturday (& my friend from 3 hrs away was coming down to visit, so I thought a number close was fine) I texted her today, she is busy with homework, but I'll see her in class Wednesday, so if I can't push for coffee today, I'll bring it up through light teasting in class.
I'm getting really good at opening groups, building attraction, creating comfort, & number closing. I've also learned that whenever I get a D2, if I don't at least go for escalation, then it's over, lol. I think my biggest sticking point now is consistently turning # closes into D2s.
The David X stuff really struck a chord. Who cares what she thinks? I can't think for her. I've noticed that whenever I go ballsy & use my drive, as long as I'm congruent, I've had good results. It's when my congruency with my rockstar attitude waivers that I get in trouble.
