Discussing :: How to Talk to Anyone in a Bar

It's been observed that there are only seven unique plotlines in the world, and all books, movies and plays are just variations on those themes.

It's a numbers game so positioning yourself in the traffic, smiling and making eye contact are good starts. You need to talk to everyone, not just the drop dead hotties. If they don't respond IT IS NOT fatal....just grin, shrug and try again.

Funny article. I think behaving naturally is the best idea rather than putting on an act which would be hard work.
