I dont use routines nowadays often. I wanted to share some routine that I used to use.
First stop a girl.
There are 2 ways to do that.
1. Run in a semi circle behind her and then in front of her (see how Tom Torrero does it on youtube).
2. Say 'Hey' loudly, to make her 'flinch' a bit and then neautralizes it with a smile and (optional) a tilted head to the side.
Tell her this:
"I need to buy a gift for my aunt. She is coming today and I havent seen her for 10 yrs. What do you think I should buy her?"
(Note how the question is long and difficult for the girl to reconstruct and suspect you of a lie).
It doesnt matter what she answers, just answer with anything..
(Answering with anything, gives the conversation a feel of being natural and not scripted).
Thank her for the answer... and tell her, you know there is something that I need to have an opinion on..
(thanking her for the answer, creates a false sense that she participates in the conversation).
When I was young, I used to perform magic shows.. I performed a few shows to my aunt.. Do you think I should buy a gift for me instead and perform a fun magic act for my aunt...
laugh a bit .. and pass to the second question quickly...
(Laughing a bit before going to the routine, gives the conversation a fun meaning/vibe)
Do you know what is mentalism?
Then go to perform Mystery's ESP routine.
If you want to stack the routine (I dont recomment stacking during the daygame).. ask her, actually I dont believe in magic, but in a psychological illusion. Psychological illusion appears to be magic if it is cunning enough.
Ask her: "Do you know how many 9s there are in 100?"
The answer should be "20.." (if you count the 90,91,92...) - most people get the answer wrong.
If you want to combine the routine with an interesting story later on in the interaction..
Watch this documentary.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgOBfCrxS3U
It is a true story with true psychology, which sounds like science fiction.
I tested that routine many times... It is fun if done right..
It is good for beginners at day game.
Practice approaching the girl and executing the routines.. focus on body language and less on the words you say.
