Backhanded compliments or ‘negging’ a girl also works well (like the nose piercing example above).
It’s a great way to compliment a girl without putting her on a pedestal.
As obvious as some may seem, it’s easy to forget when you’re in the moment: But if a girl’s investment in the conversation is low – she’s not laughing at your jokes or giving you her full attention, then it’s probably best to end the conversation and walk away. It’s better to cut the conversation short than drag it out. Say “It was great bumping into you, but I have to get going…. it’d be cool to meet up again sometime” Never leave the interaction empty handed.
The ultimate goal of pick up is to ‘close the deal’ in whatever shape or form that may be.
It’s so simple you can start putting it into action immediately.
