So I've already come up with a solid opener and need to transition to a DHV story about how I met my favorite band at a concert for the first time. Great, so all I have to do is say something like, "Oh, by the way...
"Have you heard of xx band?"
What does this have to do with anything?
You (with a grin): Thought I'd come say hi since I caught you checking me out.
"Do you play an instrument?" (I have a guitar signed by xx band, so it would be used as an excuse to bring her back to my place)
zzzzzzz and creepy! You're the fucking prize, not a signed guitar. Come on man. This is male butler behavior.
"Have you been to any (rock) concerts recently?"
What the fuck is this? Are you interviewing her for a rock magazine advertising feedback campaign?
If the girl says "no" to any of these, I feel it would be pointless to talk about me meeting my favorite band if she hasn't heard of them, that she doesn't play an instrument, that she doesn't go to concerts and would rather listen to music on her computer, blahblahblah.
I would say no to most women who came up to me and asked me those boring questions. She would have to be STUNNING for me to respond in a positive way.
In general, how should I respond to answers where the girl answers "No" to a question?
why ask her any questions?
You: Man, it's been surreal tonight.
Her: Why's that?
You: I keep getting hit on by crazy girls. You're like, number 12 or so.
Her: So you think I'm crazy?
You (with a grin): Maybe in a good way. Yet to be determined.
What do you notice about my exchanges? They are all in the moment.
DHV stories are canned bullshit. A dominant male demonstrates DHV through fitness, clothing, posture, confidence, and playfully teasing (not a fucking court jester, but charming, subtle).
