I found this article in Chicago Tribune "DECODING WOMEN: Learn to read their body language".
Read this part of the article and I'll comment after:
"Specifically, women will 'show off' their personal key points, particularly by using hand gestures," Quilliam said. " . . . A palm stroking her face is a literal pointer 'look at this.'"Doesn't your stomach just curl with sickness at this article? I mean, sure these are true ONLY after you've done the first stages of game, but not with the initial approach.
Decoding body language also can help a man approach a woman who is standing with a pack of friends. "All single-gender groups will tend to close ranks on a stranger, and female ones are no exception," Quilliam said. "The bigger the group, the more likely you are to get blocked out."
Don't wiggle into the group by taking over the conversation or making a grand entrance. Instead, Quilliam recommended watching the group to see which woman is talking the most. "Follow her with your eyes and head direction, then gradually add in some quiet comments that will lead the group's attention to you."
If a woman isn't interested, she won't preen, but she still might send confusing signals. "In short, she feels a bit guilty for not being interested, so she may ... [unconsciously] smile, nod, move closer, in an attempt to compensate for the fact that she's not available," Quilliam said."
Judge not, she simply 'knows not!'
"Specifically, women will 'show off' their personal key points, particularly by using hand gestures," Quilliam said. " . . . A palm stroking her face is a literal pointer 'look at this.'"I've found that for the majority of men who approach girls, will not start getting IOI's till after they have run A2. This is when you generate IOI's. "A palm stroking her face is a literal pointer 'look at this'" no shit! Obviously! How often does that happen without running game? Next to never on the existence meter. After running A2-A3 you'll start to notice her body shifting towards you, her paying alot more attention, especially if you 'lock in'. But before you do that? Yeah, we all know what used to happen. 'NEXT' they say...
Don't wiggle into the group by taking over the conversation or making a grand entrance... Follow her with your eyes and head direction, then gradually add in some quiet comments that will lead the group's attention to you.First off this is a woman giving this advice. Probably unattractive... :) With high energy girls at clubs, or even during day-game, it's always best to come in with a grand entrance with something to back it up. ALWAYS.
The group will be thinking, "WHAT THE F&$K IS HE DOING, JUST STANDING THERE?"
Have you ever tried to follow her eyes with your head direction? Yeah. Exactly. Talk about making it hard for yourself. Why not just learn the proper way, instead of these arbitrary 'signals' that seem to happen 5% of the time.
Go over to Thundercat's site, and learn from the "Art Of Approaching" e-book, he explains all about the first initial body language, style, and what you can say to generate an engaging conversation. He also talks alot about 'group theory' and how approaching groups with a grand entrance, and taking over the conversation is the BEST thing to do, but only if you do it right.
