    Quick Definition: A type of opener used to start a conversation by eliciting a woman or a set for their opinion on a topic.


    Full Definition:

    Opinion openers are a form of indirect opener used to get a PUA into a conversation. These can be improvised, but more often are scripted routines centered on topics that are designed to start a heated conversation (i.e. chick crack).

    One famous opinion opener is Mystery’s “Who Lies More” opener (which has become so overused that it is often referred to as an inside joke). Basically, a PUA approaches a set and asks them for their opinion on whether they think men or women lie more. The question has a lot of drama built into it and is a good example of chick crack, which can be used to get a set to hook.

    Opinion openers work best when they seem spontaneous, and there is a valid reason for why the PUA would be asking the question. Adding in a false time constraint will also make the set feel more comfortable with the PUA, and more likely for them to respond positively to the opener.

    So the above “Who Lies More” opener with a reason and an FTC would look like:

    “I have to get back to my friends in just a minute, but I wanted to ask you guys something. My girlfriend and I were having a discussion, and we just couldn’t come to an agreement– maybe you can help us. Who do you think lies more, men or women?”

    Usage:

    I used an opinion opener to get the set engaged, and quickly reached the hook point.

    Don’t think it would be a good idea to tell the set/people you’re attempting to pick up that you have a girlfriend. Just my thoughts…

    Correct me if I’m wrong but that’s a false disqualifier (telling the set that you have a gf).

    Also conveys pre-approval by women.

    09:17Me
    ayt..hirs the question
    09:18Me
    my fren is dating w/ a girl now and that girl doesnt want him to hang out me coz my sis is his x b4…if you were the girl would u get mad on him
    ?
    09:20Annie
    but you guys were friend before they started dating?
    *friends
    09:20Me
    yup
    hehe
    09:20Annie
    then she shouldnt be mad…
    09:20Me
    btw is a two part question
    its
    09:20Annie
    its all about trust
    and i’m sure your sister won’t do anything crazy to break them up right
    it was his ex for a reason
    09:21Me
    yep..trua
    *true
    second question hehe
    09:22Me
    what will you do if i use to date u b4?
    now thats the tricky part
    09:23Annie
    wait you mean if i was in your sisters positionn
    ?
    09:23Me
    nope ur in the position of that girl?
    09:24Annie
    the girl thats dating your friend?
    09:24Me
    yup
    i use to date her also
    the thing is he doesnt want his man to hang out w/ our buddies now… =)
    09:25Annie
    but i dont know.. one thing a girl cant do is to tell the boyfriend who/which crowd to hang out
    what would she feel if you tell her not to hang out with her friends?
    she should just learn how to trust
    if they love each other enough, then they would set boundaries
    09:26Me
    thats the point girls can command their guys and us guys are only followers hehe..agree? are you submissive w/ ur guy?
    of he is submissive of u?
    *or
    09:27Annie
    if i have a guy, i wouldnt go out with him if he tells me who to be friends or not friends with
    and i’m not needy like that to tell him what to do
    cos the more you try to tell them not to, the more they would want to do it
    09:28Me
    ok =) umm who lies the most guys or girls?
    09:28Annie
    depends
    equally.. depend on the type of person

    hi guys.

    i want to ask you guys… how do i pick up girls when we both have limited time?
    example: i’ m with this hot girl while we were on the bus, hb9… but any minute soon she’ll be out of the bus….do i have to neg her or do i just go direct?

    time constraint: 2 to 4 mins. before she leaves the bus at the bus stop.

    suggestions for openers and follow through.thanks!

    @hanzo i experienced that situation b4..it you will be in that situation again you must go for it right away..maybe you forgot the 3 second rule…2-4 mins for me is enough to approach and get a number..you can use both indirect or direct openers…let say for indirect just simply ask her before she goes down if theres a nearest resto that she can suggest in the area…follow her…its worth it trust me…or go for direct game .
