Re-opening is one of the keys to creating strong social proof within a venue. The idea of re-opening revolves around the fact that the initial open cannot directly lead to sex. As such, PUAs can first engage a new set by simply saying “hello.” The next time he sees them in the bar, he can say hi again, and a cold approach now becomes warmer. The more sets that can be re-opened, the more social proof the PUA has within a venue.
Sometimes, a girl is simply too pre-occupied within a club environment to go home with you at the first encounter. She has her friends, her cell phone, drinks, dancing. As such, re-opening her in a way that adds value, or re-opening another set of HBs that make her jealous, may be key to making her feel attracted to you.
