Halloween is a fun time of year for people of all ages. As an adult, you can not only enjoy the activities related to the children in your life, but also attend parties and local events. Of course, one of the coolest things to do each Halloween is to visit a haunted house! And, if you’re single, haunted houses can be great places to meet new people. You might even be able to get a date!
First and foremost, remember that while you might go to a haunted house with the goal of meeting someone, most girls think differently. They may go to a haunted house, to…wait for it…go to a haunted house. They are not looking to date anybody at that event, particularly you. But, if you’re attractive and charming, you can turn that into a fun time with new girls and maybe even a phone number.
So, with that in mind, yeah, you can meet girls at haunted houses. Because they aren’t looking for a guy there, you have to pretty much establish you are a confident and high-value guy before anything else will happen.
In all honesty, the secret to meeting any girl anywhere is to talk to her and establish yourself as a guy worth knowing.
Read Her Body Language
While, yes, women won’t pursue you typically, they will drop lots of hints, including body language, that they may be interested. This includes if you’re a random, but attractive guy in a line at a haunted house. If, while you’re waiting (and these places typically have lines), the girls in front of you get giggly, start whispering, or show “into you” body language (like one of them keeps looking at you, or her naval is pointed at you, especially if there is no good reason for her to be angled that way), she is giving you “the green light” to talk to her.
While this won’t guarantee a date, or even that she will say more than “hello,” always be on the lookout of signs a girl wants you to say something to her. Once you see those signs, take the risk and talk to her!
If you are desperately looking for a girl at a Haunted House, it will show. Not only that, but many haunted houses are really cool, fun, exciting places. You don’t want to be so focused on meeting girls that you lose out on the main point of being there!
So, instead of thinking about meeting girls, focus on having fun first and foremost. Enjoy yourself. Make meeting women an afterthought that “just happens” rather than obsessing over it. You’ll find that if you are relaxed and having fun, meeting new people, including women, just happens. Of course, don’t let this be an excuse. If you want to talk to a woman, just do it.
Bring A Friend
Because humans are social animals, we want to see that other people are “safe” before we are comfortable meeting them. Women are especially attuned to this “safety” factor. As a result, if you go alone, you’re going to look weird. And, the only creepy women accept is what they find inside the haunted house!
So, bring a friend (or more) with you. If you can go in a group that includes women even better. It will make you look popular and safe.
Stay Close When The Scaring Starts
If you establish yourself as a high value guy, then a scared girl is likely to latch onto you if you are nearby. They will only do this with a guy they consider both attractive and able to protect them.
So, if you connect with a group, make sure you end up near them when the scaring time comes, and who knows, you just might be the guy she reaches for when she feels the subconscious urge to grab hold onto somebody.
Most people hate waiting in lines, but that is a great place to strike up a conversation with a random person. The best way to open a conversation is to make an observation of some kind. Remember, simply talking to a girl establishes that you have value (confidence at the very least) over the other guys who are simply staring at her.
As we mention over and over in Be Popular Now and Size Doesn’t Matter, the best “openers” are natural conversation starters based on observation. Don’t use dumb pick-up lines. Below are some examples of observational openers. The last two are funnier and edgier, but the most effective if you can pull it off.
“This line is really long.”
“Have you ever been to this haunted house before?”
“That’s a cool costume. Where did you get it?”
“High Five (raise hand)! Awesome costume.”
(To a girl wearing an obviously serious costume): “That’s a hilarious costume. It made me laugh.”
“I hear this place is scary. A friend of mine peed his pants last year. It totally ruined his social life, but for some reason I always bring it up when I see him.”
Then, it’s your responsibility to keep the conversation going. This is beyond the scope of this post, but the best way to do it is to ask questions, show interest in them (build rapport), and flirt (keep it about 1/3 flirting to 2/3 serious/rapport building).
So, good luck. Check out more tips to meet girls during Halloween.
