I really appreciate your advice. I did only opened one set and yes I missed physical kino completely. I learned a lesson and will keep that in Mind
What openers would you suggest as these openers seem to be known for pretty much everyone these days
Don't get the wrong idea... You can pretty much use anything as an opener... and it's really not the end of the world if she knows what you're doing or has heard it before (it may never even happen to you - so don't go changing your approach just because I said that).
The opener is so unimportant.
I get that you're starting out so you're thinking "But it's the whole introduction! It's very important!"... But... It's not. You can say pretty much anything to a girl to open her as long as it's something you'd normally do/normally say and it's 'you'... I hate to use the word congruence, but that's what it is.
"Hi, I'm Zack" for example, is actually quite good.
What you want to avoid is having a 10 minute 'gamey' interaction with her, getting her number and then the next time you speak to her or meet her, you're a completely different person than the person she agreed to go out with because you're now off-script... So you want to try and stay true to who you are, while at the same time being social, outgoing, fun and entertaining enough to generate attraction (and don't forget kino).
