I agree with jdclarkson, the idea of a trick being gender specific is antiquated. This sort of thinking belongs in Tarbell and all the books published in the fifties, including blanket statements such as "get your wife or girlfriend to sew you a devil's handkerchief"

I'm much more impressed with guys with social skills, good grooming, and not trying too hard.

To say that tricks aren't gender specific is not comparable to women's rights in the 50's. It's nothing to do with women's social standings, just a simple fact that men and women are different so we sometimes like different things. Nothing to burn your bra about.
Hmm I was doing well until the last bit.

I don't see there is anything wrong with using a trick to get to know a lady. It's a bit like a 10 tonne polar bear ...breaks the ice).

If you're trying to meet women, avoid the lewd stuff. It will only brand you as someone she isn't safe being around. For best results, take it slow!

If you've seen Wilson operate, he could probably manage a freebie in Reno. Women love to laugh!

I think a little non-magic wisdom is required here.

Most women want to spend time getting to know an acquaintance before they'll agree to date. So don't just do a magic routine right off the bat! That does produce an aura of mystery (depending on if the routine is done correctly) but there isn't much else to help the connection. Introduce yourself first. Help her feel relaxed and comfortable around you. Get to know who she is and let her do the same with you. Turn what was once a boring evening into a good time. Then, at a point you feel is right, simply do the effect. Amaze her and after a few effects move on to something else. If she feels after all that you're someone she'd like to date, she'll ask. Smile
If anyone sees my sanity, please return it to

me.

My experience, as well as the experience of many of my friends is that the guy must ask the the woman out. If a guy waits for women to ask him out, he'll just frustrate himself.

Also, a guy will pass-up too many opportunities if he has to spend a great deal of time with a woman, before asking her out. Besides, the first date shouldn't be a major event, just a chance to get aquainted. The second date is a major event, on the other hand.

Just my 2 cents.

Personally I think there's nothing like the "Baffling Bra" or the "Magic Ding Dong" to make a girl feel right at ease.

ROTFLMAO!!! I'll second that laughter! If I perform the Ding Dong for a lady, suffice it to say I won't be asking her out and I would know whether it was really okay to perform it. In other words, only perform it for those you know VERY WELL!

I think it depends if you want to "Meet" a girl or if you want to "get to know her".

I met a few girls by doing magic, I admit. However, I don't think (or it would be really hard) it is easy to form a relationship with a girl after that. My advice, if you really want to get to know her, loose the cards and the coins and just be yourself. I knew my girlfriend for 7 months before she saw me perform. And it was a good decision, trust me.

I've had this discussion with other female magicians and hopefully not going too much off the topic here. While magic may seem intriguing to some girls and may help the guys in the dating department, we seem to have different experiences. Funny, for some reason I'm always surrounded by lots of women after my show asking if I can help make their husbands disappear! (Good naturedly joking, of course.)

Chicks dig PK stuff! I'll swear by that to my grave. And if you don't believe me, fine. That's just less competition for me. Smile

Seriously, the M5 or Pro PK is good stuff. They feel connected with you.

I believe in fatalism. It's not really the trick or illusionette, rather the performer that will create the "magic" of the moment.
Personally, I have used the "tree of hearts"
to break the ice. It's simple, cute and somehow hearts on the cards puts a smile on her face - go to first...

Hmmm, I think the magic should stay out of the way for a while, at least until they know you better. I think it is important to remember that magic is an art, the art of deception in an entertaining way. Although it produces mystery, is it really the basis of a good relationship? BUT to answer the original question, I think cards from the mouth gets a big gasp from women.

Dear all,

Women give great reactions to tricks but never ever tip you for your art.

However men on the other hand don't often give such "orgasmic" reactions (unless your David Blaine's spectators of course) but they do tip!

Anyone else find this?

Good advice Ryan. My fiance was with me for months before I ever did a trick for her. I've never used magic to meet women but I'm sure you could break the ice that way. I'm just a bit shy and don't see myself running up to a woman with a pack of cards.

No wonder magicians tend to be such a lonely lot. Smile
