You’ve just met a girl, and you like her, and you’re getting to know her, and then, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, a man you’ve never met before in your life steps up to you and starts talking to you.
“Hey, how do you guys know each other?” he asks.
Or, “Dude, where’d you get that shirt – it looks like something I saw at a yard sale last weekend,” he remarks.
Or, “Hey, buddy – that’s my friend. She doesn’t want to talk to you.”
Disrupting, interrupting, tooling, AMOG tactics, whatever you want to call it, this can be a real thorn in your side until you figure it out. It’s quite annoying and can be out-and-out frustrating when you lose a girl because some oaf lacking in social finesse decides to offer his opinion on your conversation and manages to throw you off balance, or he distracts you from the girl long enough that she starts feeling excluded and leaves, or gets dragged off by a friend keeping an eye on the interaction.
