I got this off of the style life forum. It has some routines in it that are worth checking out.
It has details of the now famous C vs. U smile routine, best friends test, and a few others.
Examples of Different Routines by Neil Strauss
Since I’ve gotten into this game, I’ve come up with a lot of stuff that is regularly used probably over-used in the community. And I think that the reason is that because, although I’m pretty good at this by now, I have a strong aversion to failure. Who doesn’t, right? Nobody wants to fail. Nobody wants to crash and burn. Not even as “practice” or “experience.”
So everything I’ve come up with since I started this bizarre journey has been tweaked to ensure the MOST and EASIEST success. When I first met Mystery, he suggested using as an opener, “Do you think spells work?” That was it. Where can you go from there? So I made up the Spells story, which is true by the way. I’m not a big fan of the Elvis opener either, so I made up others that were just very easy and interactive and almost rejection-free. Things like Dental Floss, Jealous Girlfriend, etc.
The next step after you open is to get IN. And this is what my post is about. I want 100 percent tight game, and too many guys just trust luck (finding a receptive girl who shows interest or just automatically continues the conversation).
No sarge can even properly begin until you HOOK the girl. In other words, you must transform, in her eyes, from a friendly stranger to a guy she doesn’t want to leave. This means having value. That’s one of the first things I learned about in this community. So I taught myself things like the Cube and mind-reading and runes and so on. But those are long routines that require a woman or group’s total concentration and attention. They don’t necessarily work well if used right after the opener. (Whoah, I’m starting to get wordy and overly basic here. Better cut to the chase before I begin to sound like the Dating Wizard.)
So what I’ve been doing now is INSTANT INTERACTIVE VALUE DEMONSTRATIONS. If I made a living off seduction, I’d call them IVD’s and sell an e-pamphlet and seminars. These are quick ways to naturally and casually HOOK a girl into your conversation. And they work whether it’s a cold approach or you’re introduced to someone. These have become CRUCIAL to my game. In fact, it hurts to give them away.
What interests a stranger are things like telling her something about herself that she doesn’t know, teaching her something that benefits her, making her laugh and have a good time, and, in general, making her night suddenly better and more interesting than it was before she met you. So I have about five routines I use to accomplish all of the above QUICKLY in a fun and interactive way unlike other value demonstrations like, say, the wonderful ring finger pattern, in which she just LISTENS to you expound. And they INSTANTLY make you stand out from every other guy she’s met, they make her laugh and enjoy herself, and it’s something she can talk about with others later. Many of you even know this stuff from your self-improvement studies, but may not use it in your sarges.
Notice too how ALL of these can be launched into right away and naturally without knowing anything about the other person. Here are a couple of the ones I use:
IVD #1: Best Friend Test
Style: Okay, I have to ask: how long have you guys known each other for? (If you think they’re sisters ask, Are you guys sisters or best friends?)
Style: See, I knew that.
HBs: How could you know that?
Style: I’ll show you. In fact, I’ll give you the best friend test.
HBs: (they always get excited here they love tests for some fucking reason)
Style: Okay.(pretend like I’m about to ask a serious question — you’re hooked, right, so you know they’re already hooked).do you both use the same shampoo?
HBs: (look at each other, and then open their mouths to answer)
Style: Okay, the answer doesn’t matter. You already passed.
Style: See, if you weren’t close to each other, you’d keep eye contact with me as you answered. But if two people have a connection, they look at each other first. Kind of like you’re doing right now.
HBs: giggle (This is where the seduction newbies you just met see you making two strangers laugh and think you’re a PUA God, LOL)
Style: See, you don’t even need to say anything to each other. It’s like you just communicate telepathically.
Then, there are a million places to go from here: Often they’ll just open up and start telling you about how they met. (Now you’re REALLY in.) If one looked at the other one first, then you say that she is submissive and the other is dominant in the friendship. (Can be a great neg.) If they want more, I get personal here and ask, “Has one of you ever kissed someone the other person dated?” They fucking love this one but don’t make it your first question. You can also use the telepathy line to launch into a mind-reading/cold-reading routine if you do that. You’ll figure the rest of this out as you do it in the field. It fucking rocks.
IVD #2: Cs vs Us
This one is AWESOME if you’re sarging strippers and models. It’s also completely true.
Style: Smile again for me.
HB: um, okay.
Style (to wing): See, she’s a U.
Style: I dated a girl who wanted to be a pop star. And she had a theory that people with U-shaped smiles were perceived as unfriendly. And people with C-shaped smiles were perceived as friendly.
HB: So what’s a U then?
Style: A U is when your teeth go straight back in your mouth (can add “kind of like a horse” if she’s a SHB). A C is when there’s a big row of pearly whites in the front. And to my ex, it was more than a theory. She actually got her teeth surgically reshaped from a U to a C.
HB: No way.
Style: And she had me go look at pictures of like Christina Aguilera, who is a U, and Britney Spears, who is a C. Look at the cover of Us or any magazine, and you’ll see that it’s always a C smile on the cover.
From here, me and the target start inspecting the teeth of random strangers looking for the perfect C or U. It’s fun. This next section isn’t part of the IVD, but this is the rest of the routine if you want it:
Style: It’s crazy how many plastic surgeries they have for celebs now. She had her eye makeup and her lipstick tattooed on, and when she changed her hair color, she had her lips re-tattooed. (If the HB seems open-minded, I continue with the following: ) And do you want to hear the grossest thing? One day I noticed that she had two round dots on her upper thighs. She worked out two hours a day and was super-fit, but evidently she got lipo, too. But here’s what’s crazy. Because she used to work as an exotic dancer, she got the fat injected into her labia so that she always looked aroused. (I REALLY say this to HBs.)
Then I throw in this joke, with credit going to Nightlight9: She was from LA, and you have to be careful with them. Whenever you go out with girls in LA, everything can be really fake. Fake hair (point to your hair), fake eyes (PTE), fake nose (PTN), fake teeth (PTT), fake breasts (cup your breasts). You have to take them to the doctor first to find out which parts are real… They put her through a machine, and you get a print-out at the end.”
IVD #3: Name Mnemonics
HB: What’s your name?
Style: I’m Style.
HB: I’m Janet. This is Donna. And that’s Tony.
Style: Okay…Janet.Donna.Tony. You know, I used to be really bad with names.
HBs: Omigod, I’m so bad with names.
Style: But you don’t have to be anymore. Here, I’ll show you in two seconds. All I do when I’m introduced to you is make a picture in my head. So if you’re Janet, I picture you with the head of Janet from Three’s Company. No offense. And for Donna, I just picture like the dawn, and the sun rising over your head. And for Tony, I see you on the front of a box of Frosted Flakes. Here, I’ll show you.
Now, in the old days, I’d have them memorize my whole name: First, Middle, and Last. But it came off as too gimmick-y. Now, I grab my wing, or a stranger in the club (like another girl I want to meet) and teach them how to memorize his/her First, Middle, and Last name. Learn about mnemonics if you don’t know this. But for it to work, you MUST have them really SEE the picture in their minds. It also becomes fun testing them later in the sarge to see if they still remember.
The theory behind these IVDs is that sometimes it’s enough value to a 6 or 7 to be cocky/funny or deeply spiritual or in a high sexual state or use great pattern language, but not always. On their own they’re not enough to consistently GRAB someone’s attention right away. So you can still do all that — be cocky/funny, be sexual, use pattern language, whatever — AS you are being interesting, extraordinary, fun, and better than the competition. You are displaying INSTANTLY that you are a KEEPER.
