My college roommates and I met up for a concert in Philly recently. They brought both female and male friends with them. To kill time we drank and danced for a few hours at a nearby bar until the show started. I figured I'd play it cool and focus more on my friends than worrying about picking up which is what I want to do since i haven't seen them in 2 years.
Out of nowhere my buddy throws me into a dance session with this beautiful girl saying that he thinks shes into me. While we're dancing I talk to her trying to get to know her with the usual boring questions where you're from, what do you do...I wasn't sure what else to do cause that's what I used all my life. I'm still new to the game. We keep dancing and she eventually gets on stage to dance more. I'm not really a good dancer so I just got back to my friends which were nearby anyway. They kept telling me to get on stage with her but I had my back turned and wasn't really too worried about it. I wanted to try and play it cool, not being all over her, figuring she would come back to me eventually if she was interested (think of it as a test). Her friend didn't seem to be having a good time either, but I saw them sit down at a table for a short while and leaving the bar to go somewhere else. I think she was interested but maybe I didn't try to close or jump at the opportunity. She might of thought I wasn't interested. Not really sure cause I find it difficult to read ioi's and women in general lol.
I could use some help and pointers to improve my game. What did I do wrong in your views? Did I do anything right? Thanks for taking the time to read.
