Went out on Friday with my wing to beat down my aa which has been plaguing me/us, in an attempt to start 100 sets each in 30 days.
After a few drinks we stumbled across this bar neither of us had been to before. Was fairly quiet inside but lots of potential targets. My wing had this app on his phone which throws up random cringeworthy chat up lines, great for us to crash and burn and learn that rejection isn't something to be scared of.
I went first. The opener was "Could I have your phone number? I've lost mine" and he pointed out a HB 7 to say it to. Instead of the usual shitting myself, I walked straight over and opened with it. She giggled and said it was a terrible chat up line, I asked how bad out of 10 and she responded -1. chatted for a bit and then went back to my wing and burst out laughing. I can't believe it got a vaguely positive response! I picked out another cheesy opener and a HB8 to approach. He did it, and also got some giggling and some banter. What the fuck? I mean these lines were terrible. I would never dream of using them on a girl I was actually trying to pick up.
After a few more of these my wing approached another HB8 with an equally awful line, started chatting, dancing, and K and # closed! I approached a HB8, K and # closed with a date lined up for the next day. We were on fire. I couldn't tell you why, but we could do no wrong.
Hit a club which turned out to be dead. a few more cheesy lines and got dancing and grinding with some girls and my wing K closed with one of them. My mind was about to explode. How could this possibly be working??
Headed to another club after meeting some friends on the way. Wing approached a HB9 with another cheesy line and got chatting. We went to sit down and discuss the approach, then I left to get a drink. Came pack to find the HB 9 had come and sat down with my wing, whose friends promptly followed. Fuck yeah. Chatting and dancing with them for a while. Amazing.
Very brief overview of an absolutely awesome night. Just goes to show having the confidence to approach, however shit the opener, can work.
