Re: Got a number last night
The Singles event was a great idea but if I may say so, I think you screwed it up a little bit, by saying:
Something along the lines of 'based on past experience they never call'
Which unecessarily made you come across as being needy, where no Woman wants to think of herself as being the last apple that you found laying on the ground, just so you can get yourself a date.
After talking to her and building up a rapport, that was the time that you should have asked for her number, as doing it the way you did by having a talk to everyone else before coming back to her, you could have very easily given her the impression that no other girl is interested and She was your last chance.
This next bit is not a 'Lecture from me' and should be taken in the Spirit of how it's intended.
But when you talk to a Woman you need to make her feel 'Special' even the ones that you don't really fancy, as they can be good to practice on.
Friendly eye contact with a nice smile and always listen intently to what She is saying (or at least give the impression of just doing so)
All Women love to unburden themselves with their problems, which is why they love to confide in the guys that look after their hair, who could probably write a book about that Womens love life.
Then having built up a rapport, where you are effortlessly talking about all sorts of Stuff, thats the time for you to get her number and then if you want, excuse yourself by saying you have to mingle, or everyone may start thinking that you are being rude.
Though if She's really into you, Stay with her.
Then 'Text' and ask her out and save any chat for the date, or you will have nothing to talk about when you meet her.
Don't get into all the PUA stuff, just come across as Yourself, as a lot of those 'Pick up routines' are becoming outdated.
The Power in a Relationship always goes to the one who cares the least
