/ Two Situational Ideas

Don't let situations to approach women pass you by.


A very effective way to start a conversation is taking advantage of the situation. I write a lot about this in The Art Of Sway when it comes to opening. In this article, I want to give you a two ideas and examples of how to take advantage of various situations during actual conversation.

Idea 1: Humor

Humor is a critical part of courtship, dating, and seduction. It is a highly effective turn on because laughing makes people feel good and humor is often associated with the very desirable trait of intelligence.

Examples of humor

1. You see a woman struggling or walking really well with high heels

A great comment when walking with or by a girl in high heels is to comment on her walking. THe line I like to use is: "Wow, you are pretty good with those heels, when I wear my stilettos I can only walk a block tops! I’m much better in my wedges though." This type of comment is funny, unexpected, and almost always elicits a response. Try it!

2. Calling a woman out really loudly and obnoxiously

The other day as I was walking to the gym a woman accidentally dropped a candy wrapper on the street. I had a nice conversation with her after beginning it by obnoxiously yelling at her for littering. I did it in such a way that it was obvious I was joking. She found it funny and we had a brief chat. The "obnoxious call out" is a technique I have mentioned before. It is highly effective as long as you make it very clear you are joking.

Idea 2: Prediction

The second idea I want to talk about I call "prediction". A great opportunity to take advantage of a situation is to predict what is going on and respond accordingly. Don’t interrupt with a "prediction" in conversation; the idea is to use a prediction of what someone is thinking to start a conversation or move the conversation to a particular topic.

Examples of prediction

1. Seeing someone who appears lost

See someone on the street who appears lost? Offer to help them out! It can turn into much more than just sending them on their way, believe it or not!

2. Someone struggling at the library

Are you in school and can tell someone is clearly struggling with a math problem, for example? If you know how to do it, help them out. Just say something like: "that concept is a pain in the ass, isn’t it?" to get the conversation going.

3. The TV at the bar

Is the girl watching something on TV at the bar? Try to guess which side of whatever is going on she is on (what sports team, what side of a political debate, etc.) and use that to start a conversation. If you guess wrong, she will probably ask you why, and then come up with some reasons why you guessed what you did.
