– Rachel DeAlto: Okay. So, I know you guys
go to the mall a lot. In my teens I was an avid mall goer. I also grew in New Jersey
so it’s pretty much par for the course. – Hunt Ethridge: Same with me, I grew up upstate
New York, and as a kid there’s not that much to do, especially during the winter time.
So, what better place to go where you know you’re going to see and run into not only
people you’re friends with, but people from other schools. – Rachel: Exactly. You get excited, you can
meet new people. – Hunt: Exactly. – Rachel: So, what do you do when you’re walking
around the mall? I’m with two of my girlfriends and you ‘re with two of your guy friends.
How do you start that? – Hunt: Well, it’s kind of tough to go up
and break into that. So, things that we would usually do is first look to make sure that
we are not going to get shot down. If we see them smiling over at us, “Okay. Alright. We’re
going to go over and talk to, and just kind be like, ‘Hey so, like, what school do you
guys go to'”? Just start a conversation, and maybe like, “Hey, want to go and check out
the Acrombie and Fitch store because we’re all attractive people?” – Rachel: Under a size 10. – Hunt: Yeah, exactly. I think changing actual
locations, and walking with them is fun because if you’re static and sitting at table it can
kind of be uncomfortable , like who’s sitting next to who, and who’s what. Where you guys
are walking around, the group can kind of flow around each other, and you can chat,
and you can kind of comment on things, and stop in and it’s just a lot of fun. – Rachel: I think the running commentary is
so important in the mall because you get all of this stuff to talk about. There are a million
types of stores, there’s products, “Do you like this shirt?” You can ask for their opinion. – Hunt: You can go into Toys R Us and be goofy
and fun . – Rachel: Funny, put a hat on. There’s so
many things that you can do to show your personality. Just make sure , keeping it light is really
what’s important when you’re flirting in general. But, flirting at the mall, it’s normally during
the day time, or not super late at night, and you’re just meeting these people. You
want to have fun with them , and get an idea of what they’re like. So, asking them what
they’re favorite store is, and going there, and having them show you what they like about
it. There are all good things. – Hunt: I remember one of the things that
I loved to do, even though, is I like to play video games. So, what I would go and go play
skee ball, and stuff in the arcade, and win the tickets to try to win them something.
Because it’s something small, but everytime they look at it they’re going to remember
you. And you know it’s not the having it, it’s the fact he got for you. Even if it’s
just a little, I don’t know, rubber koosh or something like that . “Oh, that’s so sweet.
Thank you for getting that for me.”Let them know you appreciate it, even if you do find
that you’re never going to use it again. – Rachel: I always wanted a rubber koosh. – Hunt: Kooshes are awesome.
