Should Men Stop Approaching Women?

If you’re a guy and you have the where-with-all to approach a woman, sometimes that can be the hardest thing to do and the most depressing thing to do.

Sometimes it makes you feel like just stopping approaching women.

Why? Because it’s like a door-to-door salesman, there are going to 99 “No’s” before you get your one “Yes”. Well maybe not that many.

Thoughts start creeping into a guy’s mind like:

“Am I coming off creepy for doing this?

Do all women feel, that when a guy they don’t know, walks up to them at a grocery store or gym and tries to start a conversation that we’re all creeps?

Sometimes I hear that women think men are not approaching women as much as they used to. They wonder if all of us men have given up.

Sometimes I think it is best to stick to my close social circles to meet women.

What should we do?

Here are some things to remember and try:

Usually it’s the way the guy approaches a woman. Drop the sleazy, corny pickup lines. Don’t be cocky and arrogant. Watch your attitude.

A simple nice greeting like, “Hello my name is Andrew, how are you today?” still works and goes a long way, especially if you keep the focus on her.

DON’T USE Lines like, “You are hot can I get your number?” or “How old are you?” or “Do you have a man?” or “You’re my type” or “Your very pretty”. Just don’t go there.

And don’t go here either: “I like you.” What!? Dude, you don’t even know her. Drop the B.S.

A lot of women don’t think men nowadays don’t know how to talk to women.

Just stick to the compliments and mean what you say. But whatever you do, keep approaching women. If anything you’ll get great practice and watch how they respond to it, good or bad or indifferent.

Don’t go riding the emotional, self-doubt or seeking approval roller coaster. Be the greatest guy you can be but don’t over do it.

Here we again! O.K., men can play ,too! Women do not know
how to talk to men ( you are not allowed to criticize WOMEN, then
you must be punished) . Let the WOMEN make 99 approaches
to men and get one “Yes!” , and let them start a conversation and keep the focus on the man and let THEM have the self-doubt.
Oh, they don’t want to be rejected? What a great reason!
