so im looking to get some advice for stepping up my game. i'm in college and my general social scene is a party with plenty of attractive girls to pick up. i generally have no problem opening and meeting the girl, especially if i know someone that she is talking to. after doing so, i usually make her laugh one way or another. im pretty good at doing the cocky/funny bit.
my problem comes in when the conversation proceeds and i run out of things to say. I really hate talking about the generic topics like what her major is, what she is trying to do with it, why, etc. i have found that this is really boring and usually ends with me being unable to keep the girl interested. I am able to notice when a conversation is winding down and that is usually the point where i say something like "well it was nice talking to you. we should continue this sometime." or "well ill make sure to invite you to the next big thing we will be having" followed by a number close. i have never had trouble getting a number, but i can tell that sometimes the girl isnt interested. my question here is how do i keep the conversation interesting without interrogating the girl about herself? How can i build attraction to the point where she wants to give me her number without me even asking?
another problem that i have run into is that i find it difficult to bridge the gap between building rapport and attraction to seducing the girl and escalating kino. at what point can i take the girl away from her friends to a corner and make out? how do i go about doing that?
and the last problem that i have is recovering. I am very perceptive to IOIs and can read body language fairly well, and because of this i can often tell when a girl is losing interest or is taken aback by something i said or did. the problem is that i do not know how to recover from that? how can i bring her back to being attracted?
let me know what you guys think; it would be greatly appreciated.
