Thursday night went out with the BAS crew. We only had four show up, but a crew is a crew. We met up at a dive bar to pregame it. I got there first and didn't see many options. There was a twoset at the bar who I opened with, "I'm not trying to take your seat, just ordering a drink." They smiled and I played with them a little bit before I got served. It took forever to get served, so we talked a bit. One was really cute. I didn't really know how to escalate and kind of left the set without really getting anywhere, except that the girls liked me. I later came back to them asking, "Have you seen my friend? He's an indian guy." They said knope, so I told them to let me know if they saw them.
Next set was a one-set that I had seen earlier was a twoset. I open the seated HB7. I say something like, "I was going to take your seat, but then saw there was a purse there, so I won't." She says something. I say, "Hey, let me ask you something." Go into a routine about how the bar is movie-themed, so why the heck is there a picture of Frida Kahlo on the wall. She never heard of her before, so I make fun of her a bit. Her friend comes back and sits, so I bring her into the convo. The HB7 says, "She'll know who she is." I say, "Why's that?" She says because she's Mexican. Lol, so now me and her friend are making fun of her. I say, "What do you mean, you people?" It was pretty fun. The friend ended up being a lesbian and I hooked to the point where they told me to bring a chair over. However, by then the BAS crew was calling, and indeed, there were two right behind me! So I eject from the twoset and me and the BAS crew hit the clubs.
We basically open every set we play. At one point we make a game where your wing points out a set and you have to open it. Tow sets of note: 1. Opened a girl with a hat. I say, "Nice hat, I like your style." I know the first part is AFC, but I recovered. We talk a bit and I try to elicit values by saying, "I don't want to call you hat girl. Tell me something about yourself." It doesn't go very far, though. I end up seeing her the next night and go, "Heeeyyyyy! Hat girl!"
Next set of note was a black girl I was trying to get one of the BAS'ers to talk to. I told him to open her saying, "Heyyyy. I love your short hair. Looks really good on you," or some bullshit. He doesn't want to open her, so I do using that. It hooks. I ask what she would think of me with a shaved head. She says I'd look good. I tell her we should dance. She says after she does a shot, I tell her I'll be back. I was never able to get her to hook after that though.
I had a great night hanging out with fellow seduction apprentices. It works wonders to go out in a crew. I am still not at a point where I want to be, but hopefully I am improving.
There were many more sets this night. Some hooked (the hairdresser who wanted me to take a picture of her crew, the girl with a tatoo whom I spilled a drink on) and some didn't, but I didn't get what I wanted (a solid number from a cool/cute girl). I will keep it up.
