What should I say after I do a trick and the single person or group is so astonished they can't even talk? It probably be something funny, right? Should I say anything at all? Also what if I completely astound a single alone girl at school that let's say I like; does anybody have any charming suggestions that I can say to her? Maybe something that ALMOST hints that I like her, but still let's me keep my cool. I'd really be grateful if any women on this site could tell me what they would like to hear from a charming magician after he did a great trick? Maybe a trick that he messed up? Thank You. [/b]

I come at this from the perspective of a woman who also does magic. First, let them have their high in the moment of astonishment. Don't think you have to bring them back down quickly. Let the group bring themselves down, and similarly let the other person say something first, even if it's a whispered, "Cool." This was David Blaine's genius, letting people actually feel the magic for a little while.

Second, please do what you can NOT to mess the trick up. If you're going to share your magic with others, it's important that you be a competent magician and do the art some good from the start. No one really wants to watch a bungler, much less go out with one. It is true that David Copperfield made french fries disappear when he went out on his first date with Claudia Schiffer. Even he got corny in the company of a beautiful lady. But I bet he didn't screw up the trick.

Things you can say in the afterglow moments include:

"Did you like that?"
"Isn't that the weirdest thing?"
(Look up to heaven) "It worked again, Grandpa!"

Try not to be overly funny if you're just doing one trick for one person. The most funny lines work better in a group when everyone can share the laughter.

What would I like to have said to me by a charming magician who kind of likes me personally? Try these:

"Would you like to see some more of this kind of stuff? How's Friday night for you?"
"You're beautiful when you're awestruck."
"You know, I just realized how much you look like my first assistant." (Or add one to the number of assistants you've had to this point. Get it?)
"I'll keep doing this until you like me."

That's enough for now. I'm interested to see how others react to your questions.

Carrie

I will add one thing. Using magic to meet someone is fine, but be patient. You can tell if the young lady is interested by the way she looks at you and smiles. But remember, she may like you and not like you, if you know what I mean. This is where patience comes in. If you astonish her, than she will not forget you and as long as she thinks about you, then you are half way there.
