Richard thinks he has the gift of the gab. He’s out to play the game, surveying his chances and options at a speed dating event.
He hopes to charm the woman of his dreams by impressing them with his made-up stories about his bravado, achievements, and financial success.
He flips the strategy when he meets someone he has little or no interest in — he downplays his achievements and bores them with stories about desperation and loserdom.
Then, he finally has his turn with a woman that he had his eye on.
He zero-ed in on her and tried his luck. He thought he had his game on.
She left him completely speechless!
