    Some might suggest that any "canned strategy" is high school stuff...

    If you want to try something, try this:

    Gradually steer the conversation towards Sex and the City and ask the girl which lead character she identified herself with.

    If she says Miranda, you know she's career driven and probably an overachiever.

    If she says Charlotte, you know she's generally looking for something long term and is somewhat conservative (the girl next door).

    If she says Samantha, she is probably the "loose" one.

    If she says Carrie, she considers herself a "leader" of sorts.

    Depending on the type of girl you're interested in, you either continue or move on. I've never tried it, but I heard it from my brother and it sounds fun to give a whirl.

    Well hopefully one thing you'll both have in common is the host and your relationships with the host, so that may be a good starting point.

    As long as you're style of dress (i.e. better than everybody else) and that particular question doesn't peg you as a metrosexual (no normal heterosexual watches that show, right? Right? ), yeah sure go ahead and try it, sounds like an interesting approach.

    Thats funny guy .. I am more of Sophrano type of person .. but I'll keep that in mind ... Charlotte/Samantha would be perfact girl for me .. someone who is busy enough not to bother me but loose enough give me some action when I need ... [​IMG]

    Just talk about stuff that you are interested in and that are relatively gender neutral - your favorite movies/tv shows (Amber and Boston Rob - true love, or a crass marketing move?), the music that is playing, the crazy guy doing the funky chicken on the kitchen counter. If she is at all interested, she will help you out as long as you have an opinion about *something* - "Oh, c'mon, Coldplay/Dashboard Confessional/Lil Jon sucks. You really like him/them? Why? XYZ is way better." If she gives you monosyllabic answers and keeps watching the dancing guy, move on - she's not interested and you're just making yourself look pathetic.

    Couple suggestions:
    1. No bragging, those without a penis tend to find bragging by those with one terribly boring.

    2. Be nice. Fool her into thinking you are actually a good guy.

    3. Ask her opinions and listen to the response, look at ehr face when she answers and wait til she is looking away to check out the boobs. Her boobs are not speaking, look at her mouth when words are coming out, words are important.

    4. My Daddy was a rather brilliant man (not genetic) and with all of his published research and theorems one truism he taught me stood out as the best: Tell smart women they are beautiful, tell beautiful women they are smart.

    Listen to Carlo.  Above all, no bragging, especially not about your job, car, or sports achievements (even the real ones.) And I'd like to add: no knocking other people (men or women) either. It comes off mean and angry.

    I'd forgotten about this.  It's originally from Samuel Johnson, right?  Wise man, your father.

    That should probably have an ending like: "But, if you find a woman that is both, she's a keeper". [​IMG] Jon. P.S. Your father was a wise man.

    I actually found both :)

    Oh yeah, the last one only works if you don't reveal the rule - ever - because I promise she will remember which one you said and you'll pay either way.

    ...when Jill heard the rule she said "Hey, you only told me how smart I was early on... so that means you think..." well the rest of the conversation is sorta blurry but I recall seeing a lamp coming toward my head.

    Like the suggestion about not having an unkind word for anyone - especially your collection of psychotic ex's :)

    If the subject comes up, say, "Yes, I was with Jane for 2 years. We're still really good friends. We just weren't right for each other."

    Simple, to the point, and:

    1) Implies that you are open to commitment, and *could* be committed to the right woman yet
    2) Are mature enough to handle a breakup, and was sad but not bitter about it, and
    3) Are now available.

    Women like non-pyschos. Except for those who are prison groupies. And do you *really* need to be with a 300 lb woman with a mullet?
