I see some posts about things that worked for others so let me take a couple minutes to tell you what worked for me. I'll be glad to go into more detail if there is interest. Basically I had the same routine for every tinder date and I closed close to 100% of the time and kept at least 7-8 plates at a time for a year. I was 28, 5-11, and 175.
My best openers were based off something in their profile, such as if they were wearing some weird hat. "If we hang out later can you not wear that (__)? I already have mine on and I don't want it to be weird."
I would exchange some messages and then if it was someone I wanted to meet up with I would just say, "Well this app drains my battery so if you wanna grab a beer sometime here's my cell."
I never asked for a number. I never sent follow up messages. If I didn't ask for their number it shows them that I'm not thirsty. When texting I would tell her to send a selfie to make sure I'm not getting catfished.
When it came time to meet up I always used the same bar. It's close to my house, there is no smoking, no food, and free pool. The bartenders knew what I was doing and we got along well. So I would ask what part of town they're in. No matter what they said, I would say, "Ok let's meet somewhere in the middle. How about ____?" I always said that I can't be out late since I work the following day so just a couple beers. This lets her think in advance that I'm not out to get drunk and take her home. It puts her into my frame. We are just having a couple because I have shit to do.
Another little thing I did was joke that if she's late, she buys. It's all fun and cute but when they walk in a couple minutes late I would make fun a bit and they'd buy me a round.
Anyways.. pool is a great activity while having a couple drinks. I'm decent enough that she'll think I'm good. They never are so it makes for a fun dynamic. The high tables next to the pool table are up against the wall so when she sits down her knees are facing outwards. This makes the initial touching super easy. I would get close, laugh about whatever, and rest a hand on the inner knee. When it doesn't get pushed away that's a green light. On the next round of beers I would do the same thing but now up on the inside of the thigh. The area that shows my intentions. When it doesn't get brushed away... it's time to get home.
NOW, we all hear about giving her some way to hamster herself back to your place without feeling like a slut. Let me tell you dudes the absolute best way that has NEVER let me down.
"Well I had a good time. I don't like to have any more beers when I have to drive home so I'm gonna head back. I'm close by if you wanna come over and play Mario kart"
You're going to think I'm kidding but every fucking time they would say something along the lines of ohhh I loved that game. I'd kick your ass at that game. My brothers used to play that! Blah bla bla fucking bla. They just want a reason to tell themselves THATS why they're going back to my house. When they get to my house they excuse themselves to my bathroom where there was always a very fancy girls necklace on the counter. Some rich tinder girl left it there before she left town. Every future girl would come out asking who's it was. I brushed it off and it gave me instant abundance proof. Now she knows I have others over, that it happens enough that I don't even pay attention to misplaced jewelry, and that I fuck girls with high class things. It sounds silly typing this out, but I'm just telling you what worked.
Show that you aren't thirsty, show that you are busy and have time for just a couple, show that you are selective, and most of all get a Nintendo 64
