I was waiting for a flight to Kenya, at the Frankfurt Airport, when two young Kenyan guys were both walking around looking for somewhere to plug in. But it turned out that neither had a suitable plug for the electricity available in Germany. I had brought a fully charged power bank with two charge ports.
So, I let them plug in and we chatted about many things. It turns out that the one young fellow was deathly afraid of striking up conversations with girls. He was short and rather funny looking. I asked if he had any tricks up his sleeve, and after talking for a few minutes, I believe he has no game whatsoever. None.
So, I asked the fellows why we were all sitting together. "Because we're chatting." Yes, but the availability of electricity brought us together.
"Get yourself a power bank and girls will sit beside you at restaurants and bus stops, for half an hour or more. Beyond that, I can't help you."
The better looking fellow sprung to his feet and proclaimed, "You have changed my life. I'm getting a power bank."
Then I asked them to consider other simple ways that they could be of service, and meet girls in the process. I told them how I always used to carry a short extension cord with 5 outlets, when visiting coffee shops in Canada. It's hot in Kenya and people are often stuck waiting for transportation in difficult places. I asked them what would happen if they always had a little bag of fruit and some water with them. "We could share it", my pupil responded. Yes, you could, and not just with young girls. Old ladies have daughters and granddaughters. Offer your seat on the bus to the old lady, and the granddaughter with her will definitely notice. They looked at me like they were talking to Hugh Hefner. Such an amazing ideas.
I have no doubt but the young fellow who already had some game, has added some of this to his repertoire.
Does anyone else have ideas to help a fellow out. I've always found that sitting in a prominent place, looking handsome, can work. But what about those who need some help. Does anyone have some tips for them.
