I’ve been reading “Rules of the game” by niel strauss and I have to say it seems like an interesting read so far. I just did Day 7, where niel urges you to straight up just go talk to three girls. The example he uses is the oceans opener, where he approaches by asking, “hey how good is your geography”...”ok how many oceans are there” “ok 5. So here’s the question, what’s the fifth ocean? I can only come up with 4 and it’s been bugging me all day”

Instead of using this i used a crossword puzzle app on my phone and approached girls at the book store (thought it would make more sense there) and the grocery store. I basically just said the same thing. “Hey are you good at cross words” “ok what’s a four letter word blah? blah blah.... it’s been bugging me all day” 2 of them responded nicely even though it was obvious I was hitting on them, but the third just kinda lashed out and said no to my initial question “are you good at crosswords” and I was kinda caught off guard. I was just wondering if any of you guys had better/good openers you’re willing to share.

Cheers!

Hi there, usually works 99% of the time for me. Just be you and talk to them like a normal person.
