I was out at a hookah lounge on a friday night with some friends. It was a club atmosphere with loud music, DJ, girls dancing.... I had shown social proof by greeting everybody I knew and had people coming up to me to say hi and I know the owners etc. Anyway a group of 6 girls and 2 guys were sitting behind us and I knew the guys and talked for a few minutes when they first came in. There is a blonde HB 8 that was showing me IOIs while I was talking to the guys but I went back to my seat and chilled for a while, She kept looking over her shoulder to look at me and I think her friend who was sitting across from her (brunette 7) were talking about me so I went up to them and opened kind of direct. I said hey I know this might sound weird but I had to come over and talk to you or I would regret it all night. Is it cool if I come over and chill with you for a few minutes? I directed it to the HB 8 She said yeah so I sat right next to her and asked a few opinion questions and talked about where she went to school and stuff. She was kind of giving a Bitch Shield like she was acting like I wasn't worth her time so I neged her in a joking way. The whole time she was giving mixed signals. She kept playing with her hair and she was brushing my leg with hers and she was fake laughing at my jokes but she also was kind of ignoring me and giving short answers. She also had her legs crossed away from me. So I talked to her friend (hb 7) for a few minutes and excused myself and went back to my friends. When I left an hour later I said bye it was nice talking to you and she pretended like she didnt hear me. Wtf?
I know I messed up by going right for the target. What else could I have done better?
