Shooting Your Shot 101
When you see a follower that you are attracted to, you follow them and wait for a follow back. When the follow back is accomplished, you wait until the perfect opportunity to speak.
You have to wait until Twitter is LIT. For example, Twitter is LIT for award shows, Love and Hip Hop episodes, PWI vs HBCU debates, etc. When a lituation is occurring on Twitter and you see your person of interest tweeting, you must enter their mentions and begin conversation. The vibe they give off will be the deciding factor for whether or not DMs are open for entry.
Tip: Do not be too thirsty too early.
This is the most important part of the guide ladies and gentlemen. The initial conversation will take place in front of your TL so it is key to eliminate shyness when reaching this part of the lesson.
During the conversation with your person of interest, LAUGHTER is KEY! YOU HAVE TO MAKE THEM LAUGH. When you make the person laugh, they develop a level of comfort with you. They often do not even realize it at the moment because they are so captivated by the conversation to notice your intentions.
Tip: Laughter makes thirst trapping so less thirsty.
Once you have the person of interest laughing, you have two options. You can either A: Play it safe by waiting to shoot your shot another day (booooo) OR B: Go for the game winner and SHOOT YOUR SHOT (this works more often than one might think).
CONTINUE IF PLAN ON CHOOSING OPTION B
Depending on the vibe the person of interest gives you during phase 3 will determine how smoothly your shot can be
Person 1: "Girl/Guy you better stop playing before I dive in those DMs "
Person 2: "Lol You so silly"
If you made it to this phase,
You now have permission to enter the DMs without regard for safety of the curve. Be sure to keep the person of interest laughing upon entry so I recommend a meme or funny picture upon entry. If the person of interest laughs at you (and the picture), you have successfully went with your move and thirst trapped a follower. You may proceed to display thirst and interest upon the person of interest.
SHOOT YOUR SHOT!
