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).Why it’s wrong: 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.If she reciprocates with a kind-looking smirk, you’re in to make some witty remark about the book she’s reading, the duct tape on her car, etc.Why it’s wrong: Because it smells like urine, and if you’re at a bar (which you probably are), there’s that lingering stench of vomit, too. Avoid backing her into any corners or asking open-ended questions. She’ll remember the cute nice dude who said hi when she was washing her hands because it’s unexpected and, ironically, refreshing, and she will most likely try to start a convo with you away from the piss-splattered toilets.Oh, you also have a wee bit of TP stuck to the bottom of your shoe. Simply say, “Hi,” while donning that gorgeous grin of yours. Why it’s wrong: Holy hell, I’m not sure what’s creepier than getting random friend requests from mysterious men who I have absolutely no friends in common with at all and kind of live near my vicinity.As always, you need to tune in to her body language: If she’s smiling, facing towards you, and answering your Qs with more than two-syllable words, continue honing that charm.On the other hand, if she looks bored as shit and won’t turn down her music, let it go and move on to the next car. Now, meet her gaze and come up with a brilliant greeting that ensures she’ll talk to you .
Why it’s wrong: My spandex pants are giving me a slight case of camel toe, my glutes exercise is done in a similar position I’d take while taking it from behind, and I’m trying to watch the “Real Housewives” while simultaneously getting my cardiovascular fitness on.
Why it’s wrong: You may think it’s endearing to sort of stalk the smokin’ hot barista around the corner from your place or to “visit” your favorite cocktail waitress on a weekly basis and ask her a ton of personal questions while she cleans up drunk people’s messes.
This is the opposite of a prime situation for Woman in Question to be in, though.
But hey, it’ll increase the likelihood of said acceptance.
From there, it’s up to you to strike up a conversation that will probably be drawn out because it’s impossible to not scare someone by commenting on all of their pictures and statuses. Do it 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.
