I was out at the bar and opened a girl who was waiting for her friends to arrive. My wingman and I chatted her up a bit. I left to give him the upper hand on this one and he bailed soon after. Later after her friends arrived I boldly asked her if she was single because my friend was interested. She said she wasn't. Ok, so we chat some more friendly like and she's giving me IOIs. My theory is by asking her that and being direct I established myself as the AMOG. I start to hang a bit with her group getting to know everybody, including her date for the evening. Later on, she hangs back with me to talk some more while her date goes to the bar to get drinks. I ask her how it's going with the BF, she says it's not her boyfriend and that they're just dating but it's "meh." So, I say, "well, maybe you should still give me your number?..etc." "No, I should be good...etc" is her response. Still giving me IOIs but not wanting to give me her number. I wasn't able to close the rest of the evening even despite repeated IOIs all night.
