At night I was at some sub shop looking for something to eat. After making an order, I see a girl sitting alone.
I noticed her book has no cover, thus looking like an antique book.
I took a few deep breaths and began making my way towards her. As I was approaching from behind, I decided to stand at an angle where she can see me just slightly
I asked her, “What kind of book is this that has no cover?” She turns to me with a protective smile. You know those smiles where it seems polite, but seems to be hiding true emotions?
Of course, the comfortability is not built in there yet, maybe that’s why she was giving me that half ass smile.
She told me the name of the book and I asked her to tell me a little about it.
However, the questions I was about to ask her, I reiterated them as statements, which was hard to do. Especially on the spot.
She told me the story of the book and how good it was. Then when I said, “Oh, you know the book pretty well…you probably finished it already.” She then admitted that she is only in chapter 5. I teased her about lying to me about the story, but she said that this is what the story is really about.
I took a seat and we began talking about her internship. Then we began talking about art and the gardner museum. I stated some random facts about the museum which she seemed a bit intrigued.
I could easily tell by her body language and how she would help extend the conversation that she was liking me. I even noticed it in her eyes as she never left the gaze. She leans in towards me as we began to talk more. She told me that she was 17 and in college, which makes her a pretty smart girl to be in college at such a young age. She actually looked at least 20. When my order was up, I just stood up casually and left. From the reflection on the door, I could see her watching me as I walked off into the dark.
I am beginning to see the IOI’s much better now than I have before. I know for a fact that I could’ve gotten a number close, or even a kiss, but at 17, it’s just not my thing. I’ll be damned if I pull an R-Kelly. But with the indicators of interests, here is what I saw:
1. Her gaze never left my eyes after I locked in.
2. Since I sat across from her, she would lean in closer as I would speak.
3. She would play with her hair as she listened to what I had to say
4. She loved my corny jokes, such as stating how her handshake was as elegant as the frail queen of England.
5. She had tons of stuff that she could’ve checked on, looked at, or even picked up. However, she never did any of that the moment I sat down.
6. Her smile seemed to be continuous, even when I wasn’t talking.
Since training hard on this subject of “pick up”, one thing that I had no clue on what to do was noticing IOI’s. I’m noticing a lot more now than I ever have, but the question now, is, what do I do from there? How many indicators do I need to press on a kiss or more extreme kino? How can I tell if I am wrong or not? If I lean in for a kiss and she pulls back, am I wrong for doing so? Am I wrong for thinking so? These are some parts in the subject of seduction that I need more help and emphasis on. I believe that if I can get more of an understanding on this part of seduction, I can get faster and better results in the end time. I feel like I always have to say, “Would you like to kiss me now?” or “I would love to kiss you now” is way over played, and like what the chick I met at Vegas said, “Why do men always have to ask before they kiss?” When is a good time to sneak one in?
Are you coming out tonight? If so, can we meet up earlier and discuss this before hand?
