Overhear a guy running solid "dancing monkey" game that, from my appraisal, is canned. I stand around for a minute, eavesdropping on him and a 3-set of fatties, while he "dances". He talks with them, "dancing" the entire time; and says, "hey, look how ballsy I am". He looks over to a girl painting a mural (who I have been eyeing, which is why I'm in the area) and says, "HEY!". She takes an earphone out and yells, "huh?"; to which he says, "that painting is AWESOME!". The girls don't react very positively, and it is an anticlimactic event (he loses some value). "That wasn't that ballsy", one of them says, "you should've said (?)" I take it as yet another "dancing monkey" newb behavior, and laugh at the familiar. One of the girls notices (I had probably already been in her RAS). Then, all four of them look over at me; and the guy asks me "she's single, are you available?", and I say no, in a BR tone. Then, I say, "no, but I want to ask you something.", as I walk up; smiling. He says, "Me? What do you want to ask me out or something?", continuing with his routine (haha AMOG [I haven't AMOGed many guys yet; I haven't felt it necessary. But that's probably because I primarily approach 1-sets.]) I tell him, "no, but I heard you say some cool things" (haha more like canned; I don't think canned lines are cool). "Do you know who Mystery is?" ( I have asked this question before, to another suspected "student of social dynamics" [ssd?], and gotten an affirmative response; leading to sharing of material, and a funny conversation). He says something like, "no, but I know the my5tery of [can't remember, but as was the pattern, it wasn't authentic] this is how I am". I ask him if he knows what a PUA is, and he asks, "Public Unified Association?" and continues to "AMOG"; the girls all laugh. I then look at him with a smile and a squint and ask, "you really don't know what I'm talking about?" and he denies knowing. He introduces me to the girls; I turn to them, and with complete congruence and calibration, from being social for a while, explain with a big smile that "I've been talking to him in code, and he doesn't even know what I'm talking about." They laugh, and appear extremely eager to meet me. "I might as well introduce myself", I say to one of them, and do so (and forget their names instantly). "Well, if you know what I'm talking about (and don't want to blow your cover), my name's Johnny, and I'll be around." "I'm Simon; and not that dick from American Idol" All the girls laugh, and I am done dealing with the mask he's put on. "Alright, well nice to meet you", I say; take a couple steps away, and return to admire the mural girl. "I think we should go before (couldn't make it out)." Girls laugh, and they walk away. Not a minute goes by, before mural girl initiates contact with me (for once, I get opened; I'm surprised) I spend the next 15 minutes talking to her authentically, and we have a connection. I notice her arms are FULL hairy, (hairier than mine!) lol; her face has acne scars all over it too (I'm not shallow, and one of those things in and of itself is not a dealbreaker; but both of them, possibly). I also notice, as time goes on (we ultimately spend about an hour together; she paints as we talk) that the sense of humor of her and I don't really "click". She is very eccentric, even for my taste (making horrible puns and inside-jokes that I don't understand until she explains them). She is highly intellectual, which I like; but has a stronger reality and may be more masculine than I, which is a turnoff. I end up talking to her friend as he walks up, midway through the interaction, and decide that I like him better as a friend than I like her as a potential day 2. I get both of their e-mail addresses, promise to add them on Facebook, and leave. She tells me, "thank you for hanging out with me", and gives me a hug. I like her, but I'm not romantically attracted to her (I'd fuck her, yes; but I'd fuck almost anything over a 5, and she was a 6 ;). I don't really desire a day 2.
