Although not directly on par with what John (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) did in the 2005 smash-hit “Wedding Crashers”, where the duo would crash weddings for the sole purpose of meeting, picking up and eventually bedding women frenzied by the mere thought of marriage, just remember that it was just a movie whereas my experience is something that is far from difficult to achieve.
For those who have been following in the footsteps of the GP, you know that being able to spot opportunity is the first and easiest step to meeting women. Whether you’re walking along a street in the heart of the CBD or you’re sitting down at a café having lunch, if you’re serious about meeting women (or people in general as a matter of fact), all you need to do is open your eyes. Meeting Stephanie* at my friend’s wedding was no different.
So let me tell you about this experience – I’m sure we’ve all been to weddings where we have absolutely no idea who the other people are on the table. Put simply, apart from the date that you may or may not have brought with you, YOU DON’T KNOW ANYONE because since you’re not really close to the wedding party, one of the bridesmaids puts you on the “miscellaneous” table. Now Stephanie* was on one of these tables.
How did I know? By… opening my eyes and just observing what was happening around her. She is more likely to talk to you if she’s bored out of her mind (further reinforced by the fact that no one wants to be alone at such a lively event). So when Stephanie* was constantly fidgeting with her phone, repeatedly mauling over her watch, regularly staring into space and having minimal conversation with other people on her table, I know that a simple “Hi” is going to have a bigger round of applause.
I’m sure you know what I would have done next.
Now that’s GP!
