It should be noted that most Insult Openers are not meant for groups, but should rather be directed at individual targets.
By preying on the insecurities of an individual, you can use their uncertainty in themselves to your advantage.
However, when preying on the insecurities of a group, there are factors present within the group which may react badly to your Opener and turn the entire group against you. It is better to use this type of Opener with sniper-like precision rather than a carpet bomb.
--The "It's still nice" Opener
This is an Opener you can use if a woman has something about her which is obviously fake, for example: She dyes her hair. Be sure to say this with a smile, and as genuinely as you can.
"Wow, you're hair is gorgeous! Is it naturally (whatever color her hair may be)?"
Get her answer. After she says "No," follow up with this Undermining Statement:
(looking disappointed) "Oh. Well, I suppose it's still nice."
You can do this with fake nails, fake breasts (in certain venues), fake eyelashes etc. You can even adapt it to clothing your target may be wearing.
Notice that with this type of Opener, you actually WANT to compliment women on physical attributes - which is the opposite of the Compliment Opener. But when you undermine these physical attributes, it has a much more powerful effect than simply complimenting them.
Notice also that this Opener is not the MOST engaging Opener there is. That's why you need to launch into another Opener or story right afterwards.
--The "Mimic" Opener
This is a fun Opener to do, and can actually be quite entertaining (though not for your target, who may get annoyed with you doing this - but that's not always a bad thing!).
The idea behind this Opener is to start imitating your target in the most annoyingly whiny, over-exaggerated, girlie-voice you can muster.
Girl: (talking to her friends) "Oh my God, I saw the most amazing pair of shoes today."
You: (in high-pitched tone) "Meeeeh!!! Ohmuhgawd! I saw the most amazin' pair ah SHOES taday.. MEEEEEH!!!!" Girl: "Seriously, I want to get them."
You: "Meeeh, lookatme! I wanna buy some shoes! MEEEEH!!!!!" And on and on it goes.
This is a good Opener to use if the girl is holding court and you're standing nearby.
Eventually the girl will engage you about what you're doing, at which point she is effectively Opening you. From here you can either tell her you're just busting on her because you couldn't resist, or apologize and move onto another Opener or story.
If you do this right, people around you will be laughing. If you do it wrong, those people won't be around you for long.
--The "Didhe call?" Opener
This is an Opener I use when I see a girl checking her cell phone or just getting off her cell phone. Simply acknowledge her and say:
"Did he call yet?"
This is implying that she's desperately waiting for her boyfriend or some guy she likes to call her. There are two possibilities that are common responses to this Opener. Either the girl will say "No." Or they'll ask "Did who call?"
With the "No," follow up by saying something like:
"That's a shame. You seem like such an amazing woman! Is there something wrong with you?"
With the "Did who call?" response, follow up with:
"You know, the guy who's head-over-heels in love with you. Or are you playing hard to get with him too?"
With either of these follow-ups, you're undermining the statement you made before and setting the stage for her to correct your statements.
Once that happens, you've got her.
--The "I don't like you" Opener
This is an Opener where you suddenly, out of the blue, say to your target:
"Hey, you know what? I don't like you. We're not going to get along."
This is a change from the typical structure of the Insult Opener because you are starting off with an overt negative statement instead of a compliment. But the undermining is the same.
Usually a girl will respond like "What? Why?" or "Okaaaay." to which you follow up with:
"It's because we're too much alike. I can tell we have too much in common. All we'll do is fight and fight and fight and fight and have hot, steamy make-up sex, and fight some more. And I can't be in a relationship like that, it's just too emotionally charged."
You undermine the insult by following it up with a commonality, and then make a joke out of it.
This is a rather overtly sexual Opener, because of the "make-up sex" line, but in a way it relieves the hostile tension while replacing it with a sexual tension, which is a good thing.
This Opener does quite well for me in Bars and Clubs.
