I noticed an HB9 at my local gym. I wussed out last time I was there but this time I redeemed myself. I failed at picking up a girl that worked there (HB8) and said hi to her today on my way in. I was wearing board shorts. She dissed my choice of pants so I turned that into my opener for the hb9. Our conversation went something like this...
(Hb9 had her headphones in blasting some trance)
Me: (walked right in front of her and put my hand in her face and waved)
Me:I need your honest opinion on something important.
Me: that chick at the front desk said I looked stupid for wearing board shorts to the gym. What do you think about that?
Her: I think they look nice! This isn't a beach or anything though...
Me: well this is my beach... I look good and get a good tan so what's the difference?
Me: your accent is crazy. I can only understand like every other word you're saying. Where are you from?
Me: say something I can't understand again.
Her: no! That isn't fair
Me: okay I'm gunna take a wild guess and go with Russia
Her: how did you know?
Me: I kinda have some psychic abilities...
Her: (laughs) pack your bags when you're done lifting. We're going to take a trip to Russia.
Me: we haven't even talked for more than 2 minutes, that sounds like a scary movie. How do I know you aren't going to shove me in your trunk and cut me into pieces?
Her: (laughs) do I look like a serial killer?
Me: honestly yeah kinda (laughs)
Me: I gotta get back to my workout. Have it finish up some stuff before my friend comes. Come talk to me in three and a half minutes
Her: (laughs) okay!
Me: (lifting... She never came to me so I walked up to her again) guess you can't tell time here in America?
Me: my friend is about to get here, put your number in my phone before before I completely ignore you for the rest of the night.
This is where things got real
Her: (laughs) you can't have my number. I heard that line on a pickup video online.
In my head I was like no freakin way. I didn't even try to do that but she caught me! Crap!
Me: then they must've been taking note to how I get so many numbers!
Her: (laughs) no number, add me on Facebook.
Me: I'm too busy to get on Facebook, hence why I don't have one. it isn't worth it. My friends probably here I gotta run.
I walked away and in my head I was like darn really? I thought I had this one. I get like 7 feet away and hear her yell back at me.
Her: I changed my mine (as she holds her hand out)
Me: (I hand her my phone) are you putting a fake number in to make me feel better about myself? (Laughs)
Her: of course! (Laughs)
Me: is it a sex hotline?
Her: call me right now and see.
Me: eh I'd rather not. I like surprises. It was nice meeting you.
I didn't look at her or say a word the rest of the time I was there. When I left I text her and said...
Me: hey it's _my name_ , save this number. It's the most important one you'll ever get.
Her: lol ok, what are you doing?
I didn't respond. I'll call her in a few days.
This was an interesting pick up for me because I'm fairly new to all of this. Plus, she called me out on using material pua's posted on YouTube. (Even though I wasn't aware I just used a line) I recovered well I thought and even though she was holding her number back at first, I got it. Big moral booster. Any critiques? Feedback? Things I could improve on? Thanks guys!
