    Question Picking up a girl at a funeral (time sensitive)

    Today my work sent myself and a co-worker to the wake/viewing of a guy who worked for a company we often deal with, so we could give our respects on behalf of my work. There was also a HB there who was literally one of the most gorgeous women I have ever seen. I didn't get a chance to even make eye contact as we were just there to make an appearance and my co-worker wanted to leave after about 20 minutes.

    I looked though the dead guys Facebook profile and found one picture of her. It was taken at a wedding this weekend with the caption "My cousin just caught the bouquet, now if only she wasn't single lol.". Unfortunately I couldn't find her name or her Facebook profile anywhere. But I do know she is single. There is another viewing tomorrow and the funeral is the day after that. My work is sending me to the funeral, but I was thinking of going to the viewing tomorrow on my own time and hanging around and possibly chatting with her. But I'm not sure how to approach or open in this situation.

    I've never done this, but I assume you should avoid a direct approach, especially if she was close to the guy. That's saying a lot too because I always approach directly. Just look for a moment when it's not disturbing everyone and go. I'd advise getting off the funeral topic as quick as possible, and try to lighten things up. You can compliment her, but save it's for the end. In the end though, be mindful of her feelings. Tone the negs and focus more on building comfort, rapport, and DHVinv, yourself. Throw in any funeral stories you may that can help you build those things.

    funerals aren't good places to pick up chicks funerals are one of the lowest energy venues and no-one there is going to be in that light and playful mood that you need in order to flirt the best approach is to simply talk about some happy memories of the dead person. (but if you didn't know him well then its going to be really awkward and she's not going to be in a good mood to start with)

    if theres a funeral dinner afterwards, that will be your best bet at getting her mind off of things. be prepared to have to answer the typical "how did you know (insert dead persons name here)?"

    if possible just try to get a quick number close and then flirt with her via text in the following weeks (but be sure to wait a few days so your not "the creep she met at her uncles funeral")

    Thanks for the replies both of you. I went to the second viewing/wake today, but I still didn't get a chance to approach. HB was there, but she was never by herself. There was always at least one guy beside her, not always the same one, but a few of them were in military dress uniforms and all of them were very muscular and/or intimidating. Also she spent the entire time right at the casket, and I didn't want to just stand near it by myself I felt like it would be too creepy.

    Also I didn't know the dead guy at all. Never spoke to him or anything. The casket is closed and other than one picture that was at the wake and also on Facebook I have no idea what he looks like. I don't know anything about him other than his name and what company he worked at. So I don't know how I could answer those questions if she asks. I am unsure of how I am going to approach her tomorrow, especially if she is surrounded by those guys again, but I definitely want to go through with it.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “WOW...What a Ride!”
