You have to be a salesman if you want to snag the ladies. You have to put your best foot forward and let her see you on your good side. However, if you try to be too upfront about it, she’s going to think you’re bragging. Nothing sinks your chances like a woman thinking you have a huge ego. Or worse, you’re just lying about how great you are to get in her pants. However, if you’re meek and milk you’re never going to be interesting enough to get a date. It seems like a rock and a hard place, right? These tips will help you raise your profile in her eyes without seeming like you’re bragging.
Drop a Little Workplace Complaint
Tailor this to your field, but make yourself sound successful. For the example, we’ll say you’re a car salesman. A great little brag would be to run a few minutes late to the bar, and then buy her a drink to apologize. When she gets it, say you wanted to be there on time, but you were finishing up paperwork at work. You were on your feet all day, and there were too many customers. You didn’t have a chance to complete all the paperwork between them, so you had to stay late to finish up. This says that you’re successful and hardworking, but of course you would have rather been with her. These are the lines that smooth talkers drop to keep her attention. Don’t linger for this excuse; afterwards, let the conversation drift.
Point Out Shared Experiences
If she’s rattling off that dream vacation she took to Italy during her gap year before she went to college, you can chime in with the fact that you were in Sweden last year, actually. Yeah, it was great, but you wish you’d had time to see Italy as well. You were just so busy, but please, tell you all about it… This shows that you’re on her level when it comes to luxuries in life. It lets her know that she doesn’t have that to dangle over you. You’ve got that under control yourself. You’re equals—or maybe you’re just a little more well traveled, well read, and used to fine dining than she is.
Getting a Wingwoman to Flirt with You at the Bar
Don’t sink your chances by bragging your way through dinner. These subtle tricks will make you look good without you having to do much of anything. She’ll get the impression that you’re great subtly, without ever quite knowing how she came to that conclusion.
