    Default An unexpected approach followed by a failed number close

    I met this girl at hot topic while shopping with my little brother. Being the big brother I am I told him he could get a t-shirt but he was having trouble finding one. One of the workers started to talk to us, trying to help. I started talking with her and found out she likes a lot of the same things as I and lives somewhat close. After finding common ground with her we started talking more and I felt like I was getting alot of IOIs from her as she was helping me shop for my little brother. She told me a lot about herself without me even asking such as where she grew up, where she hangs out along with a few de qualifiers aimed at me about not liking some bands and shows,which, I redirected and shut them down in seconds followed my more IOIs from her.
    After shopping for alittle to long she cold shouldered both of us and stayed on the opposite of the store for awhile. She did check on us every few minutes and stayed to talk more to me with more IOIs. After not finding anything in my brothers size she let us know that kids gap had small sizes that would fit. I playfully bet her they didn't and went to check. Coming back to the hot topic I confronted her and let her know playfully she was wrong, again she gave me the cold shoulder again and then once more when I saw her in passing In the mall area on our way out.
    I feel like maybe she had gotten in trouble since she was on the clock and kept looking over at us from across the store after she became distant. I plan on going back later in the week to see if she approaches me for a Number Close since I couldn't get one tonight. Any advice or insight to re-approching would be helpful since I feel like I was not up to par with my own expectations.

    Hard to say on that one. It is almost like the stranger on a plane scenario happened. I am not completely sure but it is a possibility that she just vented on someone that she figured she wouldn't see again. However, you may be right too that she may have got into trouble by talking to you too long. Retail environments are odd I have a story posted here that also shows an odd retail store experience before I was aquatinted with the game. Check it out sometime it is worth a laugh.

    Next time around though you will have to be the one to open her otherwise you will likely never know if she was interested or not. So I would just think about how you are going to test the waters and get the answers you need if all is good then go for the Number Close.

    It seems like a tricky setup let me know how it goes, if it works let us know how you did it.

    So far no luck gentlemen, the past week I have stopped by and have not seen my target working. I walked by three times during different times through the week, although i know schedule is a big key factor with things like this. I have thought about how I am going to approach though. First time I do see her I am going to walk into the store and plain ignore her to see if she remembers me, if so I feel I can close with a number by the time I leave using a few negs and time restraints. In the case I am not recognized i plan on using her co workers to create jealousy among them. I feel either will be a 10 minute job before I have some type of contact information from her. I will let everyone know how it goes once I have a chance to complete this set.

    Keep tuning and also keep working on your non verbal communication skills, body language can take the best approach lines and throw them right our the Effin window

    Keep us posted

    You waited to long and it became awkward...

    If you, yourself, felt that you waited to long to Number Close... you did.

    She became "cold" because you missed your N-close window. I myself am massively guilty on this, LOL.

    She expected you to make a move by then.

    I've been in retail my whole life so far, and as long as your interacting with customers management encourages it as long as you don't have any immediate responsiblitys that are more important.

    It wasn't like you were not geuninely shopping.

    If your end up seeing her again, yes use a lil neg and a false time constraint...

    But... do not try and use jealously plot line on retail workers! This will lead to her being not be receptive to you any more.

    You use a jealouly plot line on a girl you have not even N Closed yet at a retail store, and your done. An investment like that at this stage is s major turn off for her.
