How do you talk to girls in the supermarket line? - Page 3

You'll also meet some nice, friendly people and you just might make a new friend.

Agree totally with this, and not just for checkout lines.

I lived down the hall from this guy at university who chatted up every girl he came near at any time, this to the point that at parties people just started to beat him up at random. His most recent accomplishment of note is "Girls Gone Wild."

My post was not intended to imply that you try to hit on anything that breathes. But if you chat with guys, elderly ladies, etc. then when you're in line next to a cutie, in addition to having some practice you just might have the mindset that she's a potential friend, not someone you *need* to impress, so you relax. You also internalize the feeling that it's not weird or unusual to speak with strangers and the cutie is no more likely to bite your head off than the grandmother you spoke with the last time (who might have a cute granddaughter, incidentally). It also helps to relax if you think of the conversation as testing her personality to see if it matches the exterior. After all, a woman who's easy on the eyes is nice, but one with a personality to match is really what you're shopping for.

I usually just ask whether they want to have sex in the produce aisle.

What is ironic is I couldn't remember his name but you, apparently, know how to Google. Now, off to Kiton with you. And no brass buttons.

this is truley truely frustrating isn't it. Edward Green shoes, Kiton suits, Borrelli shirts do not help when trying to have conversation with hot girls.

I mean if you are waiting in line for next available cashier, then you can make a situational comment like, did you ever notice there are some people who buys a pack of gum and pay with their VISA? It the worst at the airport variety store etc.. story goes on. She will crack. Then you eventually neg her by saying .. "you are not one of those people, aren't you?"

now... after she cashes her stuff out, approach her by saying, hey, have you ever tasted my knock your socks off chicken dish? She will say no. Then you will say, well it's a dish I made at the shake n bake constest. Then tell her to give her email address to you because you want to share your wonderful chicken dish recepie (spell). When she is writing her email, tell her to write phone numbers too.

I don't think that story is any more likely to work on another human being than Shake'n'bake is to on anything.

The goal is talk about not so logical and different things. No how are you and BS and how was your grocery shopping OK? She gets it all the time.

Girls do not care what you say to them (as long as it is not logical), as long as the tonality of your voice and body language is cool.

Girls do not care what you say to them (as long as it is not logical), as long as the tonality of your voice and body language is cool.

Milano has the right idea here. What you want to do is not to say something necessarily witty but different (wit requires some logic and she may not get it, also you don't want her to "think" but have some sort of emotional response to you). Sometime's being "different" requires being silly or borderline weird. However, in a social interaction, if you do it with confident body language and without seeming to care about her reactions, you'll get great results.

The shake and bake contest thing will work great as long as the delivery is good. If you do it confidently and don't come across as *trying* to be funny or with the goal of entertaining her, then she'll respond warmly. If it seems like your'e trying to impress, she'll close up and start to think "this guy is hitting on me." When that happens, you'll lose in this interaction.

Another example. When you were kinda out of it and she turned to you, you could've done something like this: Totally disregard her comment and pretend you didn't hear what she said. Look at her, hand her whatever stuff you were buying, and say something like "I just remembered I forgot to get the chocolate milk!" Then walk confidently away (don't run, make her wait). When she's there holding your groceries, she'll be thinking about you.
'This guy is interesting.' 'This guy must be pretty confident to make me hold his groceries.' 'I'm a hot girl, why am I holding this stranger's stuff?' 'I love chocolate milk too, that's cute.'
When you come back with the chocolate milk she'll already have a great emotional opinion of you and you can seg into the typical getting to know you stuff. Or you can keep the game going, your choice. Either way, she's made a physical connection to your stuff, and an emotional connection to your actions. (BTW, I've found that making girls hold your belongings works really well in many situations).

In short, the way you act is going to always matter more than what you say. Don't afraid to be silly or strange as long as you back it up with confidence. Act like you don't care what happens in the interaction (although actually not caring is even better). The best social interactions occur out the blue and not because one side is forcing it. If you can get into the frame of mind that can allow this to happen, things happen naturally from there. If it fails...so what? You still have your chocolate milk.
