Is it me, or is r/askreddit an excellent source for conversation topics?


I’ve been thinking a lot for a couple of days about the dynamics of *interesting* and unconventional conversation topics and this sub seems to be a treasure chest full of it.

In addition to this, I’m also looking for a style of conversation that appears to be random and fictional – something that just keeps giving. I was talking to a gent in a previous thread where he mentioned he used to come up with fictional tales of how he was in the Bolivian Intelligence Agency and detailed his adventures in a way to both have something to talk about and make the girl laugh.

I’d also like to know an unconventional method to open a with a girl without starting with her name. I came up with up a ‘look at that couple there, how long do you think till she slaps him” and something on those lines.


1. How do you approach a potential girl when they’re in groups?

2. When there’s a lull in the convo, I simply stare at her with a half smile. This generally goads her to come up with something. I’d like to have a proper backup- what’s yours?

What are the worst rejections you guys have ever had?


I’ve gotten a lot better at taking rejection. At the end of the day not every girl will be into you and that’s ok. In fact now if a girl straight up rejects me I just laugh it off and move on.

Last night I was at this club, dancing next to these three girls and one of them said ‘go away!’ Pretty harsh but just laughed it off and ended up getting social media/numbers from 4 different girls later that night.

So fellas (and ladies) what’s the worst rejection you’ve ever had?

The old waitress topic


Hi fellas. I’m writing from a throwaway because people I know follow my other account.
I’m living in an eastern European city and come South America (I look fairly European though). I frequent a coffee place where the staff is mostly young cute waitresses (in their early 20s’, I’m 30).

I have a girlfriend (with whom I also visit this place every now and then) and never paid special attention or flirted with any of the waitresses. Also they’re not flirty by nature, this is eastern Europe we’re talking about, they can be polite and nice, but rarely more. Also, although tips definitely help in a country like this, it’s not the US, so they’re hardly ‘working/flirting for larger tips”.

Now to my story. A couple days ago I went to get some coffees to go, so I just stand by the bar, and the waitress who took my order asked me about my accent, and where I was from. I answered (clearly it’s different than what the hear everyday) and had some small talk, she asked me for my name, I asked for hers, I said it was a pleasure and shook her hand (yeah no idea what else I could have done). All very nice, but hardly remarkable. I have a girlfriend and I mentioned that she is one of the reasons I’m in the country.

Today I went again. I must say, I remembered her name and her image crossed my mind yesterday (you know, a guys mind it’s unstoppable). So I walk in, she’s close to the bar (today I was looking forward to having a coffee sitting down and making some phone calls, mostly work but some to friends) and as I’m walking near her -well she saw me walk in from the door- she greeted me by my name, with a ear-to-ear smile and walked me to a table of my choosing (not very irregular if you ask me, but the name and smile was slightly more effusive than I’ve seen them do with others). She remembered that I always drink a dark coffee with a drop of milk and offered me to bring me that.

So far, you’re thinking, is this guy going to tell anything new or different than it happened to everyone here? Well… maybe. As I was sitting down and she was walking between tables (wasn’t a particularly busy moment) she would look at me and smile. I would return the smile, and start to wonder if I’m imagining it. I have a girlfriend, and she knows it. But whatever.

When I asked for the bill, she seems happy to have an excuse to come closer to me. Leaves to get the check, with a box beautifully packed with a piece of cake, to go, and tells me she wants to present it to me. Now, this is something I never saw happening in this place or any other tbh. I was genuinely surprised, thought it was really sweet, and told her it wasn’t necessary but thank you so much. I did leave a good tip obviously, but it’s hard to imagine that she did it solely with that goal (maybe?).

Anyway, that’s it. It’s pretty innocent so far. But I know there’s something there. I know I could pursue this, but I don’t want to. I am still very interested in how this come to happen and what was in play here. I swear if I was single and attempted to do this, I would fail miserably.

So? Place your bets. Is she ‘just nice’? Am I being milked for tips? Does she like me? Maybe I’m just really polite and nice, and they want to show appreciation for it?

I’m so tempted to get her number. But not because I want to cheat, just because I want to see if she would give it to me or not. But I doubt this is a good idea. It can lead to ‘problems’ if you know what I mean.

How would you play it from now on? Feel free to ask, or insult me.

I hope this isn’t considered a beginner topic, but what should I text back to this cute Latina Hipster girl I met?


Evening gentlemen,

So I’m relatively new to cold approaching, but I’m absolutely new to text game. I have no idea what to say or do. I mainly use text for logistics with a girl. In any other case, I’m willing to give it a shot because why the fuck not. Let’s get to the story:

I met this cute Latina girl at the community college I haunt. Hipster. Loves rock and that godawful hipster music. I cold approached her and stated, “Hey, so I saw you around the corner and I thought you were cute so I wanted to meet you.” We talked for about 20 minutes before her Dad picked her up from community college. At first, she asked me if I had Instagram. I said no and asked for her number. She gave it to me and here’s the text history atm. Keep in mind, this was an hour ago.

Me: “Hey [her name], it’s Adam that Asian dude you met… save my number.”

Her: “Okay [insert squirrel emoji here].”

Me: “My lazy ass needs to create an Instagram.”

Her: “Yes it’s the new resume.” (As in ‘social resume’, when she asked if I had Instagram, I said no but a buddy of mine called it a ‘social resume’. She seemed to adapt that idea.)

So gentlemen, how do I proceed to create attraction?

PS: She showed me her Instagram. It was mostly inspirational quotes and a few pictures of her. Very cute. She said she had other ‘mature’ pictures of her, but she keeps those private. Subtle suggestion maybe?
