The setting is almost as important as the seduction itself.
Your moves lose momentum in a shitty setting.
For example, you spend an evening putting your moves on a desirable member of the opposite sex. (Or same, we are progressive here.)
Pick the perfect setting:
In a sports bar, with a group of friends to relax with, bumping soundtrack in the background to lighten the mood and a game on the giant screen to give that illusion of an important event.
That is a strong play.
Here is the opposite.
Her grandma died, you are a distant friend of the family, and decide that her grief stricken behavior gives you the green light.
If you hesitated longer than a second about which one was perfect, you really need to pay attention. (If it was the funeral you are either brutally ignorant or playing a darker game than most.)
While the previous two examples were just a test, it gives you a perspective to appreciate the awkwardness of the following.
Its a taphouse/grill/sportsbar setting.
Both parties have had a few drinks.
It is a festive setting.
All the signs are there.
- She is doing the hair flip WITH the giggle. Everything he says is hysterical. (I can hear the conversation, it is NOT hysterical.)
- She is emphasizing sentences with a touch to his arm, he is responding with leaning in to touch her left shoulder and speak into her right ear. It is not that loud.
- He has his wallet out and keeping the alcohol flowing. She discretely told her cock-blocking wing woman to take the night off. (She didn’t say that, but its more fun than saying she mouthed the word “GO” to her friend.)
The scene is set for a romantic evening.
If it goes on too long, they both run the risk of getting too drunk.
For him, that means that she may drift past horny and enter an emotional state where she just cries and talks about her ex.
For her, that means he exits perpetual hard on state and enters what is known as “whiskey dick”. It means that the alcohol robs him of his erection at gunpoint, demanding a ransom of sleep and will not return it until then. (Alcohol seems friendly, but it is NOT a friend.)
However, it doesn’t look like that will be a problem.
Even over the noise of the crowd, I clearly heard “Would you like to go?” along with her immediate head bob.
There is no game of “Go talk” or “Check out my friend’s party” or even the completely ridiculous, but shockingly successful “You should hear the new speakers in my car”. (That is pulling out of a pretty successful playbook right there.)
So they go.
I wish them well.
He risked a lot of embarrassment if she shut him down loudly and publicly.
She risked a crapload more just because the biggest danger to her is, well, him.
You always hope they are having a fun and lively sexual romp for the evening and might even be the beginning of something for them.
Or she might have smelled chloroform for the first time and he is feeding her into the trunk at this moment. (He better hope her dad isn’t Liam Neesen. Because he doesn’t know who you are. He doesn’t know what you want. If you’re looking for ransom, I can tell you he doesn’t have money… but what he does have is a very particular set of skills. Over 10 years and that movie still rocks.)
So lets hope we see them having grand slam in the morning and talking about their second date.
(But just in case, I know somebody who claims they know Neesen’s publicist, thats a start..)
