Everyone loves a good story, and it’s one of the best ways to introduce yourself to a woman. Women aren’t going to settle for every Joe Schmo that comes their way. You need to have a thing that attracts their attention and makes you memorable. All guys have their thing, and usually you find it as you get older. As a real man, you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, and play on what you can. Sometimes these qualities are innate, but sometimes they can also be learned.
It’s not just hyperbole when everyone says that great communication skills are an essential tool to success. When you can make a woman laugh by telling a funny story or anecdote, you’ve sealed the deal. Here are a few tips about how to tell a great story that will make her remember you.
Start with a Real Life Event
To craft a really good story that will make her laugh, talk about what you know. Pick an event that’s out of the ordinary, whether a crazy person you saw in a public place or something that happened while you were travelling. Chances are that if you like telling the story or it made you laugh, she’ll think its funny, too. Sometimes it doesn’t even matter if person you’re talking to thinks the actual scenario or story is humorous. If you think it’s funny, they’ll start to laugh. Laughter really is infectious that way.
Choose the Story Carefully
If you have a politically incorrect sense of humor, be careful. You need to know what kind of woman you’re talking to, and whether she appreciates that type of humor. It’s easy to offend someone if the anecdotes you’re sharing are particularly risqué or out there. Be aware of who you’re talking to. You don’t need to know her life story, either. It’s as simple as testing the waters when you first start talking to her. Crack a lame joke about something, and see if she laughs. Then you’ll know what type of story to tell her.
Not All Stories Are Funny
It’s true that not all stories have to be comedic, but those are the easiest ones to tell. Laughter gets people to relax, and relaying a funny experience or anecdote is a natural process. This is a type of storytelling that most people do in everyday life. If you have a different story to tell that relates to a conversation you’re having with a woman, choose it carefully. You don’t want to get too emotional or intimate with someone you just met, and especially not someone you’re hoping to hook up with. On the other hand, you can also use your life experiences to impress women. If you meet someone who desperately wants to travel to a country you’ve visited, for example, this is a good opportunity to share your experiences with her. The key to capturing a woman’s attention with a good story is to fall into sync with what she’s going to find entertaining.
