How do YOU hit on a man?Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I do not go after anyone while intoxicated. I also take my time getting to know someone, and I do not skirt around issues. Drunk does not mean jack shit except asking for trouble. If I am interested in a man, he will know. I am very open about how I feel. No need to play games, especially in bars.

How do YOU hit on a man?

Since I never seem to get out of my house and to a social setting to meet real men...I just look at their profile 30 of 40 times and figure it's a bit like casually walking by to catch their eye.

In case you're wondering--I am just kidding about the profile hits!!

How do I hit on them? If I could find one I'd hit on him!!

I can do aching, throbbing and pulsating about a toothache...is that innocent enough?

Just kidding...I can see where those words and the right tone etc would get someone's attention completely. Is it a good sign if his jaw hits the floor?

First you recognize the male of the species that you want, then you establish eye contact, so he know it's you. Then you disappear from view. Take about 30 steps backwards and run like hell. Make the hit preferably about stomach hight. Two low and you my damage or hurt the reproductive organs. Two high and you may hit his chess and bounce off like a fish on a deck. Remember, the important part is to take him down. Then ravage him. And one more thing. Ignore all the idiots around him, concentrate on your pray.

I'd leave my girlfriends and do a solo walk to a destination (bathroom, bar, whatever). If I see a man I think is cute I give him an elevator and a smile, and say something to him depending on where we are. I tell him I think he's adorable, or ask him a question about something related to the atmosphere, and throw some clear interest signals into the conversation. I always back off tho so he can hit the ball back, so most of my comments are either quick, or wrapped in a short conversation, and then I move on to whereever I was going.

I do that because most men will respond positively regardless of level of interest because getting approached is less common for them, so I like to be sure that's not all that's going on.

If he likes me back, he'll find me and continue things, if not - no biggie, I made small talk while on my way somewhere. No downside.

DJ......Your way is a great one to use, and it does work wonders for those of us clueless about a woman being interested in us.

Many of us do not want to be one of many to bother a woman that is with friends at some location, so we usually step back and let her decide if interested. The walk to the bathroom, stop to talk, ask a question, make a comment, or to just out and out say that I am interested in you, is an awesome, assertive gesture, that most men would more than welcome.

Once started, make sure that you return the same way that you left, and give that man a chance to reciprocate, and if that happens with a question and/or comment to you, the game is on, and I bet neither leaves without a number to call.....

The whole point here is that so many men think that they are expected, and must hit on a woman, that the whole situation can become a burden for her, as well as the men marching up and taking their turn. I much prefer a subtle way of doing this, and a more assertive way a woman can get my attention to let me know her interest.....

I am happy to give the one I am interested in a look multiple times, and let her decide to make the move, than stepping up and taking my turn bothering her and her friends, when I might not be the one she is interested in at all.

Just my opinion.......

Works well for me too. And it doesn't really break much of a sweat either.

I agree. IME, they seem to be fine with it.

Once started, make sure that you return the same way that you left, and give that man a chance to reciprocate, and if that happens with a question and/or comment to you, the game is on, and I bet neither leaves without a number to call.....

Well in my case I make sure he's either on the way or the way back from another destination. Turning back once I speak to him gives the impression that I walked over just to talk to him...although I want him to know I am interested and he got my attention, I'd rather it be a BTW move, than a mission.

If he and I are in the same room after the exchange long enough, he'll find and approach me again, regardless of where I'm headed.

Oh the usual..

Play with my hair.. lick my lips.. open my mouth and TELL the guy I'm interested. Sometimes all three at once.

I would be fairly amusing to see someone try to lick their lips and talk at the same time, but I don't suppose that's what you meant.


I'm always up for a challenge... but you're right I just meant that I pull these killer moves one right after another on the same guy.

I too am usually oblivious to being hit on... which is why I always just come out with it verbally after strutting a few moves... I like the moves, they're fun, so I still do them. I just don't assume that the guy will pick up on them. I know I probably would not.

I don't wear beer goggles, nor would I be likely to oggle the produce while drinking with associates from work.

Club him upside the head (but not too hard) and drag him back to my cave... oh wait... that was back when I was a neanderthal.

I stick my foot out and trip him.

Isn't that the way it's done?

i have found that a Louisville slugger to the back of the knee works, but you have to make sure to get right inside the joint, then you can offer to take him to the hospital and help him with his physical therapy,

You go over and start a conversation. Then, you casually find something that you both like, like salsa, or a current film. Then you simply state that you are going to that, and you wonder if he'd like to come alone. If he's interested, he'll say yes, if only to be with you. Or he'll say he's busy, in which case you can ask him if he'd like to go another time, and if he says yes, then you know he's interested, and really simply cannot make it. Then you can give him your number, and tell him when you'll be in to get his call.

If he is really interested, then he'll call roughly around the time he promised to call, or he'll ring later, and apologise, and it is up to you to decide if you want to accept his apology or not.

However, what is most important, is that he can call, without you spending all day waiting by the phone, enabling you to enjoy your life with no anxiety, and you end up looking like a strong, but uncomplicated woman, who can live her own life, but makes room for her man as well. Best of both worlds.

How do you use the "don't I know you from somewhere?" if you are new in town? And what really is the best part of the grocery store to pick up men at? Frozen foods or dairy? We need to know these things! LOL
