When you see a woman you like, what do you do?Page 7 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
"I'm only on page 2. This is amazing eye-opener. Most men responding are so afraid of rejection that they will do nothing when they see someone appealing. I can sure understand how horrible rejection might be, but come on. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!"

rejection $uck$.... but I'm so used to it. I agree , nothing ventured nothing gained, but there are times when I just get tired of slamming my head against a wall too. I have tried to shorten the process...... I walk over and just say, "Hi.., I'm just going to reject myself now, and save you the trouble." its the new " holding the door oppen " for ladies. (kidding.., it isnt that bad.., but it has its moments) glad to see alot of guys are having the same responses.
I just try not to take it personal, I just keep thinking how hard it has to be a the ladies, they are just so quick to jump to a conclusion.

there are actual evolutionary reasons why a man wants to approach you, but doesnt, even tho you could be giving him signals that you're interested in him


Can you explain this a little more?

another women telling men just to approach women and that its no big deal...

every man on this thread understands whats its like to go up to a women and get turned down in a blaze of glory...why?....cause USUALLY men do all the approaching...

women dont get how hard it is to go up to a women and try to hit her up...

Im not afraid, I have thick skin, I have been turned down countless amount of times, but I keep going like the trooper I am...

but I completly understand why some men are timid, as someone said before...they are tired of beating there head against the wall.....

I used to stalk them, send anonymous gifts, notes that proclaim my love for her and that no one else could have her. They always thought it was too creepy so now I just stick to stalking. At least I don't get any more restraining orders.

I usually end up staring at them. They get scared and weirded out that I may be some stalker. So I generally try to avoid eye contact the rest of the evening. But I can't help it, I'll glance over and she catches me everytime.

I then throw my head away from her attention and down at my glass. I shake my head and rub my forehead. Then I spend the next three days telling myself how stupid I was for not approaching her. Then the three days after those three days about how stupid I was for thinking I actually had a chance with this woman.

the men get blamed for not having the nerve to approach a woman, however a majority of women don't know how to be receptive when a guy is trying to get her to notice him.
women say the guys need to learn how to approach a gal, why isn't she trying to figure out how to be approachable? i see soooo many women freezing up or inverting when a guy who intrigues her aproaches and smiles. -she gives off closed signals, doesn't make eye contact and generally is way too timid to show she is interested, then to flustered to make her move back. -i was just talking to a friend who said her friend really likes this guy, however she won't try to get his attention cuz "he's soooo cute he would never like me" -jeeeeeeez -are we back in jr high???...
sometimes a girl may think a guy is a creep and wishes the guy would leave, however shyness mimics the same body language as not interested -that is unless she just tells him to get lost. -then she really looks like a mean b!tch to everyone watching -unless he is a creep.
some women really have the approaching thing right. they are calm, smile, have quick positive answers and questions that require answers back, open ended questions, eye contact, and they seem to bring up topics like "i really like that", "i wish i knew someone who could help me with that", "or i love going there, they have the best cheeseburgers, etc." -(you walk away with her number not even remembering when you asked for it)
so in all that -women if you want to get approached -first: calm down, then learn how to direct your "approach me" beam

I like to use the canine approach. If I can get close enough, I try to pee on her leg. When she runs away I can track her down by following my scent.

If she stays and sniffs my butt, then I'm in like Flynn


...I have never had so much fun, great thread .... some of the responses were priceless.....this one almost had me on the floor.

Normally I just go and punch her on the shoulder , if she punches me back then that means we are going together ...been doing that since grade 5



...Its too bad it took me 30 years to realize that was how a boy let you know he liked you....I was such a tomboy back then if a boy hit me, there was a very good chance he was gonna get beaten on

I dont approach her =x. I'm really shy, the only way i can find the courage to ask a cute girl the time of day is through the distance and semi-anonymity of the internet on dating sites.

I am surprised by some of the responses from you guys ....there are some awfully nice looking guys here and by reading your profiles it seems ya'll got it going on.....but if you don't ask you're lowering your chances. Someone said they were standing right next to someone they were interested in, how difficult would it have been to say, " Hi, my name is......"
