Conversion starters

Recommended Posts

OK so there is a topic about lines what you hate. But what about the lines you like to read when somebody say hi to you? 

What should be the next one after heey?

For me, its not really the line that matters, but the intent of starting the conversation. You can be very original and funny, but if the intend is still just to get me in the sack, its just as bad as "Hi, sex?"

If I'm exploring a lovely sim, and someone else exploring there or making pics talks to me about the place, or about making pictures for example, I don't mind if the opening line is good or not because the topic is a shared interest and something I like talking about.

Usually that is followed by a ridiculously low number...

Something that makes me genuinely laugh or at least smile will get my interest.

None whatsoever. Even if it’s gonna be an Adult proposition, I’d love nothing better than "Sex?” - “No.”, for minimum time & effort waste.

More generally, people have been surprised to see how much better I respond to directness.

That might work if I've had a few drinks first.

Like laughing gas, or a feather tickler!

   For me, it's very easy to tell whether a person prods me because they want to be pixel bumped or if they've read my profile and found anything interesting. Mainly because my profile's contents currently only really bring up photography and satanism - unfortunately I haven't yet been told that 'Jesus loves me' or anything such ... 

   If it's in general chat, I'm usually not one to start or keep up with conversation at all. Mention shoes and I'll be semi-afk for at least half an hour before peeking in to see if the conversation has gotten endurable yet.

From the information in your post, you’d probably enjoy a reading of Steve Martin’s short story “Cruel Shoes”.

Right now I've been getting the greetings that start with " Welcome back to SL" cause I state in my profile I've returned to the site and so far that's been a good opening to the conversation other than the usual "Hello sexy" or Hello beautiful" which sometimes leads to no good hehe.

I just go up to people who look cute nd say I like their outfit xD If theyre not busy they stick around and the convo goes on

 

People see I'm new and have been telling me welcome, or that they like my look and I think it's very nice

If they start with saying "heey", they can skip any further comments as that is not a proper conversation opener (nor is it any way to 'start a "conversion" ').

The ones that I typically respond to are either commenting on my profile or asking me my opinion on something about wherever we are.

Often respond to: I read your profile and see you are into <topic> and <expresses some insightful thought about the topic>
Don't respond to: single word greetings without any follow up, "Where are you from?" or variations on "You are beautiful, do you wanna <XXX>?"

Were I the sort of person interested in conversion, I'd probably start by asking them what religion they currently observe. As an atheist, I expect some conversions would be easier than others, and I'd want to pick the low hanging fruit first, like Pastafarians.
