    Question Not Sure Where I Messed Up...

    Before I start, I want to say that I KNEW it wasn't the best approach and I didn't expect to n-close or anything. Just gave it a shot for fun.This is also my first time actually putting some of the methods here to work.

    I was out with a group of friends and one of the guys made a bet with me about getting a waitress' number using a really dumb pick up line - "Is your name Google? Because you're everything I'm searching for." I was feeling up to it because I already made her laugh to start off (regardless of whether or not she was being nice, I took it as an IOI because I felt like it helped establish a little bit of rapport and comfort) and wanted to put something I learned into play, I figured I'd give it a shot even though she's probably been hit on dozens of times this week

    So, I got up later in the night and used that line. She went with it, she laughed, etc. She got the idea that I was messing around. Now, here's where I think I messed up (other than actually using that) - One of the girls decided to ruin the fun by saying we had a bet and blah blah. I told her that they didn't think I would do it, blah blah and I wanted to make them feel dumb and make myself look like a fool in the process (cheeky smile). Again, she went along with it. Seemed ok with it, but it was already "over."

    The rest:

    Changed the subject immediately to the checks and such - "They'd like this, and they'd like that...and I'd still like to know your name!" Name/handshake exchange. Felt ok. Then I said, "So, [xxxx], that would be (taking out my phone) 917..." (read that somewhere on the forum, but can't remember where. I'll give it credit once I do!)

    Obviously, this is when she started laughing (at me or not, doesn't matter...felt good getting out of my comfort zone) and walking away.

    So, clearly I made a lot of mistakes. I did, however, maintain eye contact, project my voice, etc. Not too terrible for a first attempt.

    I was hoping if anyone can give me some pointers on how to play it off a little cooler next time if a situation with an annoying friend arises and anything else that seemed like it could use more improvement? Thanks!

    the only way you could mess up is when you act creepy by being needy.

    if you don't care about what happens and you're not forcing an agenda with her, it's all good. meet more women, don't focus on a single one and you'll learn a massive lot.

    i believe your chick friend got jealous and cockblocked you because you were actually succeeding in the convo with the waitress, i would've amogged your mate and said they get jealous when you speak to other woman, that conveys non-neediness and shows you're outgoing which you will be/are

    props on the bet though (y)

    Haha, thanks! I should have thought of that, though! Ah, well...there's always next time. Definitely doing more of these this week.
