It is a trick, a pretense. But that’s okay. Indirect opening in general is a pretense. But it has its upsides in that it can make everyone comfortable. If she’s with her ugly friend, she may feel more comfortable giving you her email under that pretense rather than acknowledge the fact that her friend is less attractive than her (at least to you). If you don’t want to use this pretense, you may want to go direct.
