I saw a somewhat similar post to this in the Research forums but it didn’t exactly give me the answer that I am needing. I need some help with understanding the art of seduction. Yes, this is something that could be of use to me in my personal life because I have no clue (nor experience) how any of this works, but the intent and purpose of this question is for a character I'm writing, I swear (¬､¬) In my novel I have a male character who is looking to hook up with a woman at a club and I am drawing a blank as to how he could start a conversation with a stranger randomly that could lead this direction. Two friends approach the bar to order drinks and he has been sitting at the bar drinking for a while waiting to find someone that he considers to be attractive. One of the friends is flirtier than the other but he sets his sights on the more reserved one, which is no problem due to how charming of a guy he is. There is no subsequent relationship to be had with the female characters that he encounters; these particular women are just there to establish his role as a cad, albeit a charming and intelligent one. This character is considered conventionally attractive by most women and he has what is arguably the most respected career in his society (neurosurgeon), and although those things aren’t logical conversation starters they hypothetically should make things easier for him.
