Approaching Women - The Use of Movie Quotes

www.ApproachDynamics.com

I was talking to a group of girls this weekend and they were complaining about a couple of guys that had come over to talk with them. The complaint? All they did was quote movies and hi-five each other. When hanging with the boys, we ALL do it (think Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, Goodfellas, Swingers, Wedding Crashers, 40 Year Old Virgin, Coming to America, etc.). I can't explain why, but we all do it!

When walking up to a woman or a group of women, RESIST the temptation to play the quote game (going back and forth with a buddy) - at least right away. ;) Here is a cool link I found with "Five Movie Quotes That Must Be Stopped." I can think of a few more that are WAY overplayed, but this is a good start.

On the other hand, dropping an occasional movie quote (or song lyric) at JUST the right moment can be a nice touch. The way I see it, it's a win-win-win situation. If she has seen the movie, you get creative points for coming up with the right line at the right time. If she hasn't seen the movie, she may think you are being witty. Finally, if she just doesn't get it, then you can bust on her for being socially inept!

That being said, however, overuse of quotes (or doing it with your guy friends in front of her) WILL make you look like a jackass. When was the last time you heard a woman quote movies? It's just not in their nature. So think of it as a SPICE, rather than the main course. Too much and you will spoil the 'meal.' Ya dig?
