First off I'm no PUA by any means. I just got into reading material, and haven't been doing any sarging yet (give it a couple weeks!). Up until recently I was the really shy guy who couldn't make contact with anyone - men or women.
Yesterday I attended a windsurfing course. It was just a lot of unknown people I never saw before and I decided that hey I should really practise my social skills if nothing else. I was early and I started talking with people as they came.
Suddenly this HB8 or possibly 9 appears. The 3 second window passes quickly, so did the extended one and after half a minute, minute the window was long gone. I froze and didn't have anything clever to say (wasn't a first lol). She was clearly there alone, and she was really a looker! Anyhow.. I basically spoke to EVERYone except her at this point.
Question: Did this actually (unintentially) work FOR me? (IE ignoring the target while talking to everyone else)
Everyone went surfing and after an hour and a half people started packing up and getting ready to leave. At this point I approacher her talking basic AFC stuff. She was really open and easy to talk to. I tried negging her saying she used a frikking raft for surfing (HUGE beginners boards are easier to keep balance on), but she didn't understand it at all and went silent just looking weirdly at me. As it was about to get awkward I turned it around to a compliment adding "..but you did really good!" and left it at that.
We talked for a bit and left our seperate ways since I had no idea where to take it yet. I found out though that she'll be there again in a few weeks so I have decided I'll do what I can to read up on some material by then and hopefully try take it somewhere.
Now to the questions..
The PUA routines I have read so far are all card tricks, cold reading etc. Basically nothing that would work in an environment where you're active and doing something, or when there's little room for intimacy. Does anyone have any tips on routines that could be used in such a setting? I should probably have asked her to unzip me at the end, but I didn't think of that until afterwards
Anyway any and all feedback is welcome. Looking forward to learning what you guys know
