    Introduction. New to the game

    I'd like to introduce myself to the group. I am really looking forward to all the awesome stories that we are going to share. I am 30 year old software engineer in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have been a shy, reserved individual all my life and have realized that I need to make a change, break out of my shell and learn to play the game to find myself the woman I deserve in my life. I'd like an expert opinion on how I could have made the following conversation work to my advantage.

    Scenario
    ----------
    I go into the leasing office to pick up a package that was left for me there. I notice that the new leasing agent there is smoking hot. This is how the conversation went

    Me: I am here to pick up a package for apartment number xxxx
    Her: Is it big?
    Me: (realizing the obvious double entendre situation) We just have to find out, I guess (I was overthinking what to say and blurted out something. I had no idea where I was going with this)
    Her: (Finds the package) Here it is. It's not too big

    And I just walk away

    I am not sure of what I could have done there to have made a more interesting and fun conversation. Also, it would be great if someone can give tips on how to approach her next. She's usually there alone and looks plenty bored. The situation seems to have great potential.

    Hi, and welcome to the forums.

    Since you're a regular, an option could have been establishing some-back humor with a bit of friendly banter like "Hey, I haven't seen you around here, you're new. Aren't you supposed to wear one of those "new in job" signs?", of course said with a big grin on your face followed with "Well, welcome to [the place's name], I'm quite a big shot around here, comes here all the time, my mum sends me cookies every week!" big grin again. If she hasn't volunteered some information, before you go you could say "Ok, gotta go, but congratulations with your new job, hope you'll like it. Will you be here when I pick up my cake next week?", remembering to maintain a strong but playful vibe.

    As a follow up, you could come back a few days later, call back the humor with "Hi again, has my mum stopped by yet?". You need to clearly display that you're joking, then say "nah, I knew, I just needed and excuse to stop by (showing intent), how has your first days been?" Let her answer, relate or whatever and then tell a funny little story starting with "Man, the craziest thing happened on my way here, have to tell someone, check this out". If she's really into it, qualify her about sharing your silly sense of humor and go for the number. Only go for the number if there are no customers, other employees or her boss around. Don't stay for too long, you have to keep it short and funny, if need be it takes a few visits, that's often the consequence when running this kind of game.

    This is not THE thing to say and do, it's just something I personally could have done, because I think it's funny. There are million of other ways of doing it, including going direct. As for some sort of structure and what to do next, have you acquainted yourself with The Triad model?
