This week’s Date Spotlight:

Miss Smooth Sales Girl

Age: 26

Height: 5′ 7″

Ethnicity: Asian

  • What I liked:
  • She was Asian and very cute. I like differences so some of these things would probably annoy some people. She had a serious valley girl accent. “Like Ohhh My God Becky! Look at her butt!” I’ve never been exposed to accents like that.

  • What I didn’t like:
  • Now that I’ve had time to think about the date, I feel that she was just using her sales skill to win me over. I think she was showing a little more interest than was actually there. Was I hood-winked?! I’m gonna get to the bottom of this!

  • What I learned:
  • Be interested to be interesting & really listen. This was more of a reminder. I already knew this but she implemented this social skill well.

    Keeping the conversation going can be difficult. Keeping the conversation going with a hot girl and have her sitting on the edge of her seat with interest is even more difficult. I was the hot girl last night.

    Why was I so interested in the conversation? Even though she had me doing most of the talking?

    She asked questions to find my real interests then showed interest. This made her seem interesting. We should all do this.

    Sometimes I’m not totally present in the conversation. I’m just asking questions for the hell of it.

    So to be a better conversationalist, in each conversation, I’ll pay close attention until I find her real interests, then focus on those. I may learn something and she’ll leave thinking I’m the best conversationalist in the world just because I was being a good listener.
