I was out with a few friends last night relaxing and having drinks and a woman (HB 8.5) just comes and sits at our table and starts talking to us like she knows us. I immediately look at my friends and their faces tell me they don't know her. Being a friendly guy, I gave my friends a nod and we started talking to her.
She was high energy, fun, positive and lead most of the convo. After about 5 minutes or so I had my suspicions that she may be versed in PUA but I kept quiet about it and decided I was going to try to wing and help out whichever one of my friends she was after (I am in a relationship so I assumed it wasn't me). As the conversation continued, it was clear she was after me (teasing me and spending most of her time talking to my friends: trying to get my attention, and I was the only one she was kino'ing), so I decided to have a little bit of fun with her.
I knew what she was looking for so I wanted to try to confuse her to see how nimble she was. I was being polite and gregarious but giving zero ioi's (other than being nice) and guiding her into having to dhv to me to see how she would play it. I should say that I am heavy into eye contact and genuinely being interested in talking to ppl which some women pick up as an IOI, so perhaps she did too? Continue on!
At this point I was still not supremely convinced she was PUA but I was having fun! After about 15 minutes, she was trying hard and was adept at mitigating my lack of interest so I threw her a bone and asked her for her name (If I didn't give her that IOI she would have left).
She immediately went into comfort and was doing pretty well. She was slowly escalating her kino and I would only reciprocate if it was appropriate for me to do so (I was NOT sexual). She then said she had something to show me and it was at her table. Now I KNEW she was PUA (or at least a natural). I told her I didn't want to leave my friends so she went back into comfort.
This was about 30 minutes into the conversation, so I decided that I had all the fun I was going to and I didn't want to waste her time so I leaned in really close, slowly pulled the hair back behind her ear and whispered sexily "What happens when PUAs collide?"
She pulled back stunned with this look of disbelief on her face. After what seemed like 10 or 15 seconds, I told her I would go back to her table so we could talk frankly about it (my friends are ignorant to PUA ways: they think I am a genius with women...HA!). We went back to her table and talked about it. She was VERY interested in hearing what I had to say about her technique.
I discussed how she misinterpreted my IOI's (eye contact, etc) and that she did very well with her comfort and kino. I did tell her that her opener would have never worked if I hadn't nodded to my friends. We are all aggressive people and are not big on strangers just sitting with us without introducing themselves (its a southern courtesy thing). Turned out this chick was pretty awesome. We changed numbers and are friends. I am going out with her tonight.
Anyone out there had a similar experience? If so, how did you handle it?
