Social dynamics are tricky. Norms for social interactions vary from culture to culture, and it doesn't help when all the people that initially seem interesting end up liking fire a lot, and sometimes knives. Learning to pick up on three key facets of primate socialization and watch in awe as conversations transform from awkward babble to pleasant flirting. The first setting on Miss Pivot's human-decoder ring is body language, which students will learn to interpret with the acuity of a private consulting detective. Physical communication, an extension of body language, tackles the science of soft touches and violent slaps. Finally, the dating-savvy experts leading the workshop will touch on micro expressions of the facial region, revealing the secrets of every eye twitch, nose wiggle, and tooth-bearing grin.
Even individuals not on the market for dating and relationships may benefit from the advice of a Miss Pivot singles workshop. Body language, physical gestures, and facial expressions are relevant in other aspects of life, such as job interviews, dealing with a taciturn boss, and realizing when you shouldn't comment on the angry policeman's nose pimple. Whatever the motivation, attending a singles workshop will deepen your understanding of human behavior and involuntary muscle spasms.
Check out what Metromix has to say about Miss Pivot:
- The best way to meet hot girls at a club is not to trawl around with a pack of dudes or your possessive female best friend. What you need: a confident, outgoing — paid — woman by your side, who can slyly approach other unsuspecting women on your behalf. In other words, a professional wingwoman. Cities from New York to Chicago have had pro wingwoman operations; now, Indianapolis has Pivot. – Amanda Kingsbury
Special correspondent Ryan Checkeye checked out one of Miss Pivot's Elemental Dating events for Metromix as well:
- By the end of the night, I’ve talked with seven different women and a number of men. I list the nicknames of three women I’m interested in on my card and hand it in. If these women also list me, Miss Pivot will later send an e-mail informing me of a match. – Ryan Checkeye
