Hey guys, just a quick report this time. I went to this one college bar that I always thought was tough to sarge in--guys and girls all know each other, tough to be a few years out of college around all these 21 year olds. But I ditched the excuses and marched in there alone. Here's the report.
Situation: Two girls sitting at table, two girls (different set) standing right near them.
Approach style: Indirect
Result: Number Close
Not knowing anyone, I spent the first 10 minutes talking to guys, talking about football, choice of beer, the bar etc. I made sure to add value to any group I opened, and moved on before getting too needy and annoying. I saw two girls I wanted to open--I actually told the guy I was talking to that I was about to do it--went over and asked:
"hey do you guys think this would be a good bar to take a girl on a first date?"
Not only were they immediately interested but the two girls behind me (sitting down at a table) started laughing and tried to chime in. Now I am talking to four girls and couldn't make up my mind who to target (I was a little indecisive I'll admit). Luckily the seated girls made the decision for me by asking me if I would like to sit down. I said sure, and targeted the girl who made the offer (turns out the other friend was just visiting from out of town, so it was the right choice).
I teased them and talked about dating crap, meanwhile the other two girls kept looking over and when I winked at them, one came over and tried to get back into the conversation: she was clearly interested as well.
I said "actually I see one of my friends over there I'm gonna go talk to" and she tried to say "aww, well maybe I'll cya round campus?". To which I was like "uhh, no cuz ur gonna give me your number" (handed her the phone).
Best part was that I forgot her name but she actually typed it in! I swear, handing the girl the phone just always works for me. The message here is that college girls love opinion openers like this and will give you a great reaction as long as your body language and tone are good. Best of luck out there guys.
