What do think of using props as a means for meeting people? (Especially if you’re the person being approached.)
Let’s say I take a frisbee along to the park, even though I’m by myself. I see a cute woman I would like to meet, so I say hi and invite her to toss the frisbee around with me.
Would “props” be a good way to meet someone or not? I suppose it’s somewhat cliche, but if it works… what the hay? Would it be awkward for the the approached person? I know it’s pretty much an individual preference thing, and hard to generalize, but give it a shot if you can. I’m not talking about far out stuff like ventriliquist dummies or anything. Just little innocent stuff, according to the environment. A frisbee in the park, a deck of cards in a bar, a sketchbook in a cafe, etc etc.
I do take my dog for walks in the park alot, and she often gets the attention of a woman or two, but I’m not talking about “live” props, even though it works.
