But of course there are some places and situations where trying to pick up a woman might not be the best idea. Here are six popular situations and locales where you can swoon a potential lady friend, if you go about it the right way. This is the opposite of a prime situation for Woman in Question to be in, though.
Begin by altering your mindset. Go ahead, flirt her up, but be respectful of her space and time. Women really, really appreciate sweaty, testosterone-amped men leaving them alone in the midst of working out. Striking up conversations with neighboring mats before and after class is also super-natural — unlike Dude who I recently encountered awkwardly running backwards in order to chat with Hot Girl on the treadmill next to him she was not impressed.
Driving while distracted by pretty ladies is dangerous, one. Odds are, only 56 year-old men with goatees will answer those requests.
Instead, make eye contact and flash that award-winning smile. As always, you need to tune in to her body language: Oh, you also have a wee bit of TP stuck to the bottom of your shoe. First, do the shoe check.
Avoid backing her into any corners or asking open-ended questions. But will I ever see him in real, non-Facebook life? No, probably not unfortunately. From the women I know who this has actually worked on hallelujah for the socially-awkward, they do exist! But you should know that already… right? Yes, this sticky situation takes some tact. We can cite at least one example of a happily, married-for-six-years couple who met while they were on a blind date — but not with each other. And they managed to not make their dates sob or feel horribly rejected in the process.
On the surface, this might seem like a player-esque, move.
