This is a routine that you can similar to the way you would use palm reading during a pickup. What makes this routine better than palm reading is that it is not as played out.
The Ring Finger Routine
The second you notice she is wearing rings say, “I have to ask before I run, why did you chose to wear that ring on that particular finger?”
You continue, “Interesting, I have a friend who’s a spiritual type, and she just told me that the fingers you choose to wear your rings on says something about your personality. Each one of these mounds, the pads on the palm where the fingers join the hand, is represented by a different god. In ancient Greek culture, you’d wear a ring on that finger to praise and pay homage to that particular god.”
From here, go on to explain each finger one at a time. Start by giving a quick rundown explaining each of the fingers she isn’t wearing a ring on. Then, when you get to the fingers that do have rings, spend a bit more time by giving her a more detailed cold read.
Here are sample scripts for each of the fingers, feel free to improvise and modify when needed:
“The thumb represents Poseidon. He was extremely independent. He wasn’t up on Mount Olympus. He preferred to be in the sea doing his own thing.
Notice that the thumb kind of sticks out, in a way, it kind of does its own thing as well. People who wear thumb rings are therefore very individual and independent. They don’t follow trends, but instead prefer to set their own.”
“The index finger is represented by Zeus. Zeus was the king of all gods and the god of thunder.
That’s a very dominant finger. It represents power and immense energy. Having a ring there means you tend to be a more dominant person.”
End by waving of your index finger at her as if to say “no no no” or “don’t do that.”
“Your middle finger is represented by Dionysus whois the god of wine and partying. He is an incredibly irreverent god.
Having a ring there means you tend to do whatever you want and care less about what others think.”
If they’re wearing a ring on this finger toss up your middle finger and joke, “It’s like saying screw you to the world.” This almost always get a laugh.
“Your ring finger is of course represented by Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Perhaps that’s why we wear our wedding rings on this particular finger.
When you fall for someone, you tend to fall for them completely.” This is a great spot to deviate from your script and work in some romantic cold-reading.
Conclude with “Interestingly, it is the only finger that has a vein that goes straight to the heart without branching off, so when someone puts a ring on that finger, they’re actually making a direct connection with your heart.” If she’s comfortable, trace a line from her finger up her arm as you say this.
“The pinky is represented by Ares, the god of war.You’ll often see mobsters with pinky rings on.
On one hand, your pinky ring is a sign that you have a darker side. However, it also indicates that you’re a great protector of things. If somebody messes with someone you love, you won’t flee from the conflict, you’ll quickly step up to defend them. I bet you can
be trusted to keep and protect secrets as well. Maybe that’s where the pinky swear comes from.”
At the end, you should smile and momentarily lock your pinky with hers.
* If she isn’t wearing rings and you still want to use this routine, then you can begin by saying “Look at your hands and imagine that you’re wearing some rings. Now, tell me which fingers you’re imagining them on.”
* If during or after the routine the woman asks,
“How do you know this?” You may respond, “An ex-girlfriend of mine was into mythology and taught it to me.”
* If she wears a ring on her wedding finger then inquire “Is that an engagement ring or do you just wear that to keep the womanizers away?”
You’ll be surprised how often the latter is true.
