Everyone likes to be complimented
Appreciation is one of the three laws of communication according to Dale Carnegie (Author of the bestseller, “How to win friends and influence people”). Compliment the person but with style. However, do not make it cheesy. Moreover, make it as subtle as possible. You do not have to become a poet in your first rendezvous. Complement about their dress or their watch. Moreover, choose indirect ways to compliment.
Strike a conversationFind different ways to strike a conversation. If you have a common friend, ask them to introduce you and talk good things about you to that person before you meet them. A good edification always forms a good impression about you. Bribe your friends for a couple of beers or a movie later. When in the conversation, talk about topics in which they have a common interest.
Choose online platforms if you are not able to talk
If you are an introvert or shy person, choose online platforms to chat before sharing their number. People generally feel more comfortable sharing their Facebook id, whatsapp and blackberry messenger rather than sharing the number. Chat with them asking generally about them or their interest and then when the time is right and the bridge is built then ask for their number or ask them out for a coffee.
Keep it light and funDo not focus on just one person. If you are good with others, that person will also notice you. Keep it light and fun. Everyone wants to be with the person who is fun loving and knows how to enjoy. Make sure that you give equal attention to everybody. Do a small gesture that he or she notices but not directly aimed at him or her. Lastly, everyone remembers that person from the party who made everyone laugh. Therefore, be humorous to build a good impression.
Talk to their group
This can be a good strategy to get their number. The reason is because you are not in any pressure of performing and the other person does not feel being stalked. Strike a friendly conversation with their friends, occasionally glancing at your interest. Making a good eye contact here can make a big difference. However, do not look for too long to scare them and get everyone’s attention. Let the eye contact be firm yet subtle. After some time, smoothly involve them in the conversation. Once they are in the conversation then you can slowly divert your attention. However, play a little hard to get when they want to talk to you. Ask their friend for their number. Mostly the entire group will give their number to you including that special person.
When asking for their number, you might face rejections or a no. Remember it is not the last person in the world. In the dating world, it is all about hit and trials. Lastly, a no know only means not yet. Therefore, keep trying.
