Here is a routine I’ve used with good success. It’s in “opinion opener style” but I’ve only really used it as around the third routine, so this may not gel properly for people who are working from a structure.
“My friend has been going out with a girl for about three months and they get along really well, they love each other heaps, but her cat hates him. Like whenever he tries to pet it, it will just look at him like he’s an idiot and walk off and one time he left his shoes by the door and it pissed on them. What do you think he should do? We’ve thought of four things :
- Just be nice to it even though it’s going to hate him.
- Ignore it.
- Say to his girlfriend : It’s me or the cat.
- When she’s not looking ‘accidentally’ (two fingers motion) run it over with his car …”
I’ve opened with this before and it has opened, but I seem to get best results with it as about the third routine.
This wasn’t actually inspired by the Jealous GF Opener although they are very similar, I was looking through women’s magazines for material and to try and understand women’s sense of humour / interests and came upon a story about how a woman’s cat kept hating her boyfriends. BTW does anyone else know of good sources of material or info on women’s sense of humour and interests that I can pillage? (I’m feeling a bit socially retard right now because last night I tried out opening one set that gave AI with “Guys I’ve got a really important question for you. It’s a matter of life and death. Do you brush first then floss or floss first then brush” and it bombed really badly hahahaha).
