Number closing? Time bridge or IOIish close?
So for my there's two types of number closers.
First there's the time bridge one. Goes something like this:
So I've got this show (house party, bonfire, whatever) next weekend, you should totally go.
Pros: This one's really indirect. If I played my cards correctly I'd say this is pretty much an 85% number closer; including if she has a boyfriend.
Cons: This is what gets me, I hooked a girl that I could really like. And that means she reads a shit load of books and talks funny, which also means she's not into major social events. So when I say there's a house party and you should come, and she's not really into that. I get declined.
The next one is the IOI ish one, which kind of goes like this:
So I think you're really cool, so I think you should give me your number.
Pros and Cons together: It's directish. There's really nothing wrong with that unless she has a boyfriend. And if she has a boyfriend, it really shouldn't inhibit you two from hanging out, because if she doesn't notice you, you still would make major good friends. It's a learning experience. Also using this number close without building enough comfort; usually the girl would say, "But I barely know you."
Which one is better?
