You hit your favorite venue. The staff knows your name when you enter the spot.
Got your Indochino on…after 4-5 suits, they finally got your pattern down. Smelling like the most expensive thing that Sephora has to offer, You’re feeling yourself. …and then you see them.
Two smoking hot chicas, dressed to kill, in your place of worship. One is obviously cuter than the other. They’re engaged in some chit chat, but you can feel that the cute one likes you.
How does a player handle this situation?
The average player basically has two thoughts on this.
I’m going to observe these young ladies, and then wait for the moment when the cute one separates from the less attractive one and then make my move!!
The veteran knows that when two girls come to a venue together, they’re attached at the hip. Sniper style approaches are only useful in situations where you can not be seen talking to a girl. (Like her wedding)
The Guns Blazing Approach
“I’m going to just go in guns blazing and approach the one I like”. You’d think that this is the weaker of the two common strategies, but sometimes the one you want to talk to is receptive
With no other options, or other ways to think about the issue, this is how you can do it.
Thinking Outside the Box
How does a veteran think about this issue?
The problem of the two set is not present with a girl on her own, or three girls, or a mixed group. The issue is that there’s a dynamic between the two girls.
So you have to recognize the social dynamic, and then figure out how to use that to your advantage.
Here’s a classic way to handle it, it’s called the Best Friends Test
Here’s how the written version. (Don’t you hate it when folks have you watch a video? Dude, I’m at work…)
Style goes on to say that after you open the two set this way you can really start tap into their frequency and get all sorts of intel from the two of them.
Best friends? Are you sisters?
“You two are terrible, I bet your best friends”
- put them on notice
- put them on defense
- your playful mood CAN make them playful
The key here is the that you have to approach an interact with the two girls as one.
To be honest, opening them is the easy part.
Lemme paraphrase another 2 set opener that I read recently.
You see two chicks. and then…
WIA – “You know anything about drama? Dig this. One of the homies been with his chick for a good 4 months. They make the cutest couple. ”
*stand with girl A, grab her hand, lean on her like a boyfriend*
But then they sort of broke up all of a sudden.
A’s “friend’, more like a frienemy is always up in Ol Boy’s face, So Bertha gets with my boy after Agatha breaks up with him.
Should Agatha be mad? They did break up.
So the idea here is
- Talk about a social situation
- You can get into roleplaying
- Make sure you get kino with Girl A and Girl B
There are situations where it’s actually difficult. Two seated chicks having what looks like to be a heart to heart conversation is probably the hardest situation that a player sees on a regular basis. These rude chicks are ruining fun environments by being serious, and then are pushing away the world to stay in serious mode.
Isolation of the Target in a Two Set
….Great, now that you’ve opened the two of them and they’re talking to you…HOW DO YOU GET ONE?
Wait…before you focus on one….
Maybe you can bag both. (Vicky Cristina Barcelona)
Overall, you’ve got some options.
- Recruit a Wing Man
- Be very careful, a bad wingman can kill everything
- Recruit the Crowd by merging the Set.
- That is ask a question that they *can’t* seem to answer, and just grab a stranger. “Hey Stranger, We’re trying to settle a bet….figure this out…”
- From there
- Engage both, show one more attention but be respectful of the other one, and get the contact information.
- Neutral Close them both, call the one you want. m “Yeah, we should totally get together on that thing I was talking about”
Still a tough situation.
