The question I get asked most often after performing tends to be along the lines of ‘do you pick up a lot of girls with your magic’? Magic- like any performing art- can be a great ice breaker, but ultimately, your personality is what allows you to build either a love or business relationship. I performed my first magic trick around the age of seven, back when I thought all girls had cooties. I wouldn’t recommend anyone get into magic to ‘pick up’. However if you’re a magician (and obviously not committed as I am), I guess there’s nothing stopping you from trying.
