How to Approach a Woman – Advice for men from women

Image

Walk up and say “Hi”. Start up a general conversation about where you’re at and see how she reacts. If she keeps eye contact and is pleasant, continue on and ask her out; if she is avoiding eye contact and being short with what she says, move on. Just be confident (not cocky) when you approach and smile.

You have to do the hard part of playing it by ear and just approaching them, saying hi, and talking to them in a very confident and non-confrontational manner … Just be confident, if you are, it doesn’t matter what you say.

I prefer someone who can just say hello to me and be forward about it without automatically using cheesy pick up lines or asking me to sleep with them.

I had a guy come up to me at work and said I’ve never done something like this before but I just had to tell you that you are beautiful and see if I could take you out sometime. If I wasn’t married at the time I would have totally said yes. I think if you seem genuine in saying something like that you wont come across as totally creepy, but still flattering. Like really flattering.

Workplace is an inappropriate place for romantic interactions. … as a cocktail waitress (very revealing work attire), I do NOT appreciate guys trying to talk to me at work. You may be as genuine, charming or even CUTE, but whatever you are saying is going in one ear and out the other. It makes it uncomfortable.

Guys don’t realize how much most women think about things like exit routes. If you corner or trap us in some way, we will feel frightened, not receptive. I know 90% of guys don’t mean to do this, and that kind of thing doesn’t even occur to them … And if you’re wondering why we worry about things like that, it is because we’ve been cornered and harassed or groped, or know someone who has, and there is literally no way to know if you are going to do something like that until you do it. So just, before you approach a strange woman, look at her possible escape routes, and do not get between her and them.

… make sure you have the woman’s attention. I don’t know how many times a guy will just walk up beside me and talk. Not even have eye contact and expect me to be like “oh yes I was totally just paying attention to what you said and it was probably awesome.”

Tips for men to impress women

Image

1) Stop Looking for the ultimate line

All you have to do is keep her interested in the next thing you’re going to say to her. Tell her about your trip to Prague or an interesting movie you have recently seen. Be honest, but find a way to show her that you’re a multi-dimensional guy, without sounding pretentious. You have to keep her interested, and waiting for the ultimate line does not help.

2) Avoid Awkward Lull

This is where most men struggle. You should never leave a conversation because you’ve run out of things to talk about. At the very least, use something like, “that’s just like when . . .” to keep things moving. If you’re feeling confident, try the “cold read”—tell her something about herself based on her appearance or mannerisms. Point out her striking cheekbones or her cute laugh. Her reaction will open up a new avenue in the conversation. Change table, place, music or position to keep her interested

3) The Reel – In

Confidence and humour are the biggest assets. Be fun, tell jokes, make her laugh. Just don’t over do it. You are not a stand up comedian. You can be funny while having meaningful talk as well.

4) Take it outside

Do not take loud, crowded surroundings. More intimate, the better. That’s where you’ll discover your shared interests and build a connection. You cannot know a person in a crowded and loud bar / club. Ask her for coffee, so that you can talk.

Best of Luck 🙂 Be fun, honest and respectful. Be the guy you would want your best friend or sister to date 🙂

Big Bang Theory Characters (Raj, Leonard, Sheldon, Howard) on Dating

Leondard Hofstadter

Image

Out of the four characters, Leonard gets the most action (read Penny ;)). Why? He has excellent social skills, probably as a result of having to deal with so many difficult people in his life. He’s cute, responsible, and reliable. What’s his Achilles Heel? He’s a TNG (a Too Nice Guy). He lets women (and everyone else) walk all over him. Women don’t respect this. He needs to be the man in his relationships.

Sheldon Cooper

Image

Its shown that Sheldon does not date by choice. Well, even if he would want to date, he would be terrible at it. He lacks social skill, and more importantly has little empathy. A woman can tolerate an arrogant nerd. She can tolerate a guy with poor social skills. But a guy with no empathy is definitely out of the question for any woman, even Amy Farrah Fowler.

Howard Wolowitz

Image

Howard is a horny guy and a mama’s boy. But those traits don’t deter him from getting liked by a few girls. That is because he is a sweet guy who really, really wants a woman, but he’s so desperate for approval and sex, that he scares women away. He just needs to be respectful of women, and he would be a good ordinary man to date (well Jew and short, but still)

Rajesh Koothrappali

Image

Rajesh is a typical Indian guy. A lot of Indian men, go out on parties, but form their own groups or stand in a corner, because they are too afraid talking to women. Guys like Raj need to develop self confidence to date girls. They need to start by talking to close friends, friends’ girlfriends and sisters, to understand that girls are normal people.

Conclusion

One of the reasons I think BBT is popular as at some level, all guys feel a BBT character in them. Which BBT character are you? 🙂

Why Online Dating did not work for you?

A lot of my friends tell me “online dating doesn’t work!” Then they go into some story about how either they or someone they know used to have a profile online but never met anyone they liked. And that you know that site is full of girls showing off cleavage and all guys are athletic and tall. While online dating certainly comes with no guarantees (if only!) I think its need to be seen both from a customer and from a company point of view, what failed! Lets see what you could do. Here are three reasons why online dating isn’t working for you and what to do differently.

You are never online 
Tell me honestly. How frequently do you visit the site after signing up? Are you guilty of signing up for an online dating site and creating a profile, only to log-in once a month and wonder why you haven’t met the person of your dreams? Don’t you think that a huge and crucial aspect of online dating is actually being online. Treating online world as a safe place, where you know you are talking to real people and friends would solve the issue. You have to be online to discover and get discovered.

Fix for companies: Integrate with what people are using. Facebook is social. Respect people privacy. Email is personal. But don’t intrude in people life. Do not send me daily email that “sasha, 25 wants to meet me”. I do not want to meet a girl who sends me such messages. Send me email, but look at each email as if I should be eager to open it.

You do not trust people
I do not blame you for this. If I met you in a bar or at a common friend’s party, you would figure out that I am a good guy. I am the same guy on dating website. You don’t trust me now. Why u do that? Because there are a lot of guys and girls who are not portraying their profile correctly. I think we are paying a huge price for privacy. This needs to be fixed.

Fix for companies: Screen each profile or get a guy in only if there are friends recommending and get the data verified. If you do not do that. You have to fail!
