Starting my second semester of college and I figured while I'm there I might as well at least try to make some new friends in the process, make it fun. I'm not that much of a conversation starter at all, I usually didn't bother talking to the person I was next to last semester, but I've been considering my options. I'm actually thinking of trying to become a certified magician some day (not that important to the story but thought I'd throw in some background) and I'm getting pretty good at tricks and card sleights. I have a few tricks that I was thinking I could use to maybe lead into a conversation considering my terribleness at starting them. For example I have a trick that I can use someone's name to find a card they pick in a deck, so I have this performance all planned out, pretty much being, go up and sit beside someone I don't know who I think might be entertained by this, introduce myself, and when I get their name talk about how I feel that this name is special in a way and proceed with the trick and then I should be good talking from their because I started with something I'm comfortable with. Does is sound good or does it sound like it would come across a little creepy?
Definitely creepy as an introduction.
Yeah, don't. There are a ton of clubs at most colleges that you can join to meet people of all types. Join a social fraternity. Just join something, go to church and join the young adult group.
Im a fan of magic, especially card and slight-of-hand tricks, but I've gotta say that intro could come off as a little creepy and Im afraid you could be setting yourself up for a harsh rejection.
Yeah I kinda thought it was a little creepy when I was thinking about it I just needed a second opinion haha. I guess the most effective way is usually the simplest and a good hi will work.
Yep...that should be all you need to start.
