Reply To: Bond flirting – Does this feel comfortable? :-)
The thing about the Bond clip is that it’s almost a pickup formula. He tells her she’s hot right away: when she says “I’m the money,” he says, “Every penny of it” while totally ogling her. He calls her out on her sarcasm, then disagrees with her about how poker is played. Then he does a cold read on her, complimenting her on her looks but negging her at the same time! This is classic negative game, as close to pickup as it gets.
