Thought I could share this funny pickup attempt I encountered last week…
Was walking through the HDB blocks on my way to the MRT station, and this guy stopped me and said with an exaggerated enthusiasm “Hey! You are the cutest girl I’ve seen since I left house today! Do you live around here?”
I politely lied and said no, and that I was just running an errand nearby.
It was 9.30am in the morning… there wasn’t many ppl walking around other than some old aunties on the way to the wet market. So I wonder who he actually compared with when he said the first line, but okay thanks…
Here are what netizens think:
- He has to warm up for the next cutest girl
- Bad methodology. Always build rapport first. Many guys open with “interview-type” questions when something much more useful to build trust and rapport is by telling a short, RELEVANT story about themselves so the other party will begin talking.
Algorithm: If after sharing, the girl fails to open up, this is a no-go. Asking for her contact will guarantee failure.If after sharing, the girl responds and carries the conversation, that is when you either draw it out longer (suggest an immediate activity like going into 7-11 to buy something) or move to closing.
Moral of the story: Repeating failed strategies is insanity.Approaching girls is no different from marketing A/B testing and sales pipeline. Always pre-qualify your leads.
- This is where you start looking for the hidden cam. Next thing he’ll hand you 5 bucks for giving him his first real content for his fledgling YouTube channel.
- Idk why this line sounds like it was said by a NPC in a Pokemon game
