Mark this in your score card in your head, as an IOI, but she is trying to gain the qualifying you frame, Reject it and start asking her qualifying questions. Some she scores well on, other it is uncertain.
She asks you: “What do you do?”
“I’m a glorified bum.” I tell her., to the one I left at that.
They like the mystery too. Even a little one like that. It is not easy to get, they want to work for it a bit. And she has no stereotype opinion of any kind to place on you. Girls love mystery. She laughs. I looked at all the reactions from the ones I may have followed up that comment with a bit of an explanation of what I do I have nothing to prove. She has to earn her way into my attention even enough for me to share small bits.
Or I tell her “I clean up crime scenes.”
“Really?” She asks.
“No. I wouldn’t want want to mop blood off the walls. I mean those guys do make 90+ thousand a year, but I don’t imagine its an easy night rest every night.” (see where the conversation goes. )
Watching her as you speak, maybe you ask her “What is this a job interview? What are the benefits?” with a “What do you do.” right back at her. I have skipped answering or given her a joke about it, asked her and she will just factually tell me the info I requested. Girls often ask people the questions that they want to be asked as a measure of courtesy.
I see this all the time. She is looking to respond to you, not for a man to respond to her. Later when the conversation gets dry, you can redirect it (this is always good) back at an unfinished point.
“You asked me what I do. ( your still not going to answer, just re-spark her curiosity, and hold it, girls love this) Well when I was a kid, I was convinced I would play for the rest of my life, so once I got an internship at Disney world, I figured my childhood wishes were coming together.”
