Charlie Brown

June 3, 2019

TL;DR - See Summary


Hanna - Barely 20 something Blonde.

Rip - Some guy who should know better but doesn’t.


Train ride for no more than 3 minutes.


I bustle into the train and grab onto a rail putting me half a metre away from this blonde.

”Charlie Brown.” I say to her. ”Sorry?” she replies. ”It’s Charlie Brown on your jumper. Looks like the whole peanut gang’s there too. Turn around and let me check.” I grab her hand and spin her around.

”Nope can’t see it you’re too fast. My name’s Rip.” as I extend my hand to shake hers. ”Hi I’m Hanna.” she replies as she returns my hand shake. I don’t waver just lock onto her eyes for an instant whilst I hold her hand. Then let go still keeping her firmly in my sights. ”Your accent; it’s vague. I can’t place it.” As I pick up HOW she responded. ”I guess it's..” I say as I start throwing out random countries she might be from..

She laughs. She responds. We enjoy the ride. Then her stop arrives. We say our goodbyes and off she goes. Some ending right? No number close; no fucking(well not her at least) and no dick waving triumph.


Approaching; and your anxiety of it doesn’t have to be so. It can be casual. If you are. It took me less than three minutes to learn her name, where she’s from, where she grew up, where she’d been that day, that she has one brother and is studying to become a paramedic. AND that she likes Charlie Brown.

Information I could have used to escalate with.

If approach anxiety prevents you from approaching; approach something tangible about her. Earrings. Shoes. Charlie Brown Jumpers. Things she spends time and money on and will appreciate YOU noticing. Knowing your Prada from your YSL is a bonus but not necessary. Hone your observational skills and you’ll find a myriad of openings unfold. Then flirting, and approaching becomes just that little bit easier.

Godspeed and good-luck!

i do this sometimes, i wish i got some numbers though

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat30 points31 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

It doesn’t matter. Consider it training. Then, the next time you’ll find yourself stumbling on a HB9 and more time to game (house party, bar, etc.) that’s when the training will pay off.

[–]TRP VanguardHumanSockPuppet18 points19 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

This is precisely why flirting is a numbers game.

It's not just about flirting with every hot girl with the goal of turning it into a lay. It's about flirting with every single girl, and using them all as practice.

[–]TheRedPillRipper[S] 7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

At this stage it’s just stretching old reflexes for me. Making sure when the time comes to drop the current; the rust won’t take too long to knock off. Plus not going to lie. It’s a nice little ego boost when you can still ’get em gaga’. Eye fucking each other in the space of minutes. AWALT.

[–]Malakyas_1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yeah u right doesn't matter . But one of the last ones i did this was an HB8 so that would be cool to get in touch and try to improve date game too with her. Anyway gotta keep training

[–]fds_1 1 points [recovered]  (9 children) | Copy Link

what's the problem, not asking or not receiving?

[–]Malakyas_2 points3 points  (5 children) | Copy Link

Sometimes i don't ask , window opportunity to small , the bus gets by and if i ask she may lose it

[–]iloveeveryone20206 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Don't sweat it. Different people have different timings. For every 10.. heck 20 times you strike up a conversation, the timing / conversation will lead into wanting to see each other again. There's a beauty when you're both dancing with each other. You show interest.. and she / he / they reciprocate.

There are people who focus on closing. And, they're right in saying that you lose 100% of the numbers that you don't ask for. But, if you're like me, then you probably hate the pressure. Instead, focus on the now.. enjoy the moment for what it is. Maybe it leads into more.. maybe it doesn't.

[–]fds_1 1 points [recovered]  (3 children) | Copy Link

That's not an answer, that's an excuse. You can use your:"Is this you bus?" as an opener. Cmon bro this shit isn't rocket science....

[–]Malakyas_0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy Link

I used this is your bus. I actually use hey does number have already passed. Them talk shit i just dn't close.

[–]fds_1 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy Link

Why the fuck don't you close? Approaching is the hardest problem for more people. I think you don't actually talk enough with these girls so you don't think she'll give you her number

[–]Malakyas_0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Because her bus arrived after we talked and there wouldn't be time to get it. That's why i didn't the last 2 times.

[–]Malakyas_0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

altough the real is problem is "THIS ONE GIRL" , i have a severe case of oneitis, i keep trying to aproach new girls to solve it. But i just can't her out of my mind.

maybe i'm on her frame ahsuhasuh

[–]Andgelyo0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

When you speak to a stranger, cold approach and what not, its always a win. You can’t lose. Think of it that way.

[–]3chazthundergut17 points18 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

Good job keep approaching.

I've found more success in my approaches by trimming down on my effort. For example do the Charlie brown thing but not the "name your country" game.

Then sit back and relax and enjoy your surroundings/ answer a text.

Then a quick intro, what are you doing in the city? Let's get drinks sometime -> number.

But it doesnt seem like you were trying to get her number, so just keep having fun with it

[–]_do_not_read_this_5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is gold. I like the "check a text" idea, although my current method is "as soon as I think I should ask for her number, ask for her number".

I like the pause. It shows that indeed, you don't give a fuck.

[–]RedPill20183 points4 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Then sit back and relax and enjoy your surroundings/ answer a text. Then a quick intro, what are you doing in the city? Let's get drinks sometime -> number.

So you basically make a comment and then withdraw by "relaxing" for a bit and then strike up the conversation again with some claim?

If I understood you correctly, why not just continue the conversation instead of withdrawing from it? Do you do that to convey that you are relaxed?

Apart of me says that this would convey that you're nervous (if you are to pull out your phone, fiddle on it for a short time and then strike up the conversation again when you could have just kept it going) or does this ultimately come down to your frame in the sense that if you actually do reply to a text, it's different than an anxious person pulling out their phone just to fiddle with something and then engaging back in the conversation?

[–]3chazthundergut0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy Link

Yea you're probably right- in that situation it might be best to go straight to number close

[–]RedPill20180 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

When do you use the pullback option as far as disengaging from the conversation to re-engage?

It seems beneficial but I cannot put my thumb on an instance where you’d employ it.

[–]0io-6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Good advice! Nice FR. Get in the habit of doing that all the time and some of the girls will want to trade numbers or keep in touch without your having to ask.

[–]DeadliftRx6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

This is a grand tool for learning to approach.

Stop caring. Just say hello. Hell, say hello with the intent of it going nowhere. If she's not receptive, who gives a fuck?

Not me, but I hate women and am not interested in entertaining or using these vampires for any reason. YMMV

[–]MatrixofLe3adership5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

You fellas got some sorry social skills if this is anything more impressive than a blip on your radar. It was a good interaction but still, a post...?

[–]RedPill20183 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

I believe the reason for this post was to focus on the actuality of how simple it is to speak to people (in which there is no need for approach anxiety, etc.) and not to display the beauty of Rips social skills

What do I know though

[–]frooschnate0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Rather have a small non-consequential post about something valuable than some of the bullshit written here for the past months.

Besides, do you look around when you go out. People have sorry ass social skills nowadays.

[–]_do_not_read_this_0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

It's fun to do this. Just a quick flirt and get on with your day.

No ego boost from getting a number, but then, no ego blow from not getting a number.

[–]Bear-With-Bit0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Handing your phone to a girl while not breaking eye contact needs to be locked in your muscle memory.

Edit: Great, concise FR.

[–]Standgrounding1 point2 points  (13 children) | Copy Link

That's a valuable lesson.

Closure/follow up is literally my main problem. I almost plated/LTR'ed a gamer girl myself at a volunteering event - ended up getting into her car and even getting her facebook - but no social media follow-up was made afterwards by neither party.

Setting - we were just waiting for the events to end and I was bored, sitting on a sofa, listening to music. She [HB7.5, 19-20YO, sophomore at uni) approached(?) me and just started painting. We talked for like 4 hours about games, studies, food, dreams and other random shit, and then after the event ended I asked for a dropoff at a street close by. Lol, got a free ride home. Still no fucking though.

I then had already been too much burned by oneitis to have any sign of that so I just focused on myself afterwards.

TL;DR - closing and follow up are vital. Any ideas for follow ups on social media/texting? I just seem to be OK at hitting it off in reality, but not on the phone.

[–]BazingaBen20 points21 points  (7 children) | Copy Link

If you held a conversation with this girl for 4 hours and she was willingly taking part / enjoying it - you just had to take 10 seconds to say "Hey wanna swap numbers and we can check out/do <insert one of the things you talked about for 4 hours> sometime".

That's it.

She talked to you for 4 hours. She would have given it in an instant. You should probably message her on Facebook and say that now if it hasn't been too long.

[–]1z1z2x2x3c3c4v4v14 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

She talked to you for 4 hours. She would have given it in an instant.

I agree 1000%. She was waiting for him to lead... to make the move... to plan the date... to take her away... to be a man.

Now, some people don't like what I just said, but that is the reality most times...

[–]DeadliftRx4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Never ask. Hand her your phone, opened to input a new contact. Tell her to give you her number so you can contact her later. Give them something to do. It distracts them. They may not pick up when you call two months later. Who cares? Her loss.

[–]Standgrounding1 point2 points  (4 children) | Copy Link

It's been a year... Dead silence. She is in my contact graveyard now, like many end up.

[–]furcryingoutloud1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy Link

Do a jesus and revive her. You have nothing whatsoever to lose.

[–]Standgrounding-1 points0 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

Now to make it not awkward... Suddenly texting her out of the blue sky might turn her off.

[–]furcryingoutloud2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yeah, that's why it's your job to make an attempt to turn her back on. Hey, it might work, or it might fail miserably. My point is you'll never know unless you try it. Me, I would try it. What have you got to lose?

[–]majaka12340 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy Link

Yes because her loins are literally dripping nightly from the thought of not knowing anything about you for the last year...

[–]gixxerthouguy4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy Link

That is not plating a girl. Nor almost. To plate a girl, you have to fuck her without commitment, other than to fuck her again. You met a gamer girl, exchanged contact details - of sorts - and didn't follow up. Try harder next time.

[–]Standgrounding-5 points-4 points  (1 child) | Copy Link

4 hours of a talk that she legit enjoyed? For me - some say I am antisocial - this is a huge achievement.

I'm trying to imply that most people don't even talk to me - that's the closest thing to a plate or LTR I managed to pull off.

[–]NightFire456 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Your mistake was talking for 4 hours. After 30 minutes should have asked for contact and bailed. A few days later followup. If you have social issues then OPs post is what you need. Just randomly talk to people about anything. A good one is about produce in grocery stores.

[–]1z1z2x2x3c3c4v4v4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy Link

Any ideas for follow ups on social media/texting?

This is easy. You know something about what she likes and what she is interested in...

"hey, I am going to the [insert mutual activity here] next weekend, you should come with me... I think we will have fun..." And thats it. Use the word should, and imply you are going without her, so there is no stress or pressure, and makes it easy for her to say yes.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
