Do you want to change that or are you happy with the way you are?

It sucks man, there are a couple cute chicks who are always on the same bus as me in the morning (it's a student shuttle) and I wanna approach them but there's nothin to go off of. At least if they were wearing a band t-shirt or something I could use that lol.
There's nothing to go off of? Are you kidding me?


Pick something out of the sky. You've seen them enough time to be able to make something up.........


'"Excuse me, what kind of cell phone is that? I'm on the market for a new celly and I can't decide. When I see someone that has a nice one, I ask to see how they like theirs"


"Excuse me, what kind of bag is that? That's cool. I need a new bag and wanted something different. Where did you get yours?"


"Excuse me, Is that a Ipad or some other brand? I'd like to get one but with so many on the market, I don't know which one to choose from. Are you happy with yours?"




The above 3 are example openers. Afer that, you have to carry the conversation. Of course, you make up your own. I wanted to give you a few examples of how to open. You don't need to do anything but open. You don't have to be at a club. You can be anywhere.

Notice, there is nothing fancy, nothing "slick" about the above. Nothing corny. Just regualar old questions to open the door.

Of course I want to change it... I have gotten substantially more fit than what I was 6 months ago. Hasn't seemed to increase my confidence at all.

Well, that's too bad! Today I was invited to be treated to a "friendly lunch" (when will Americans learn anything about romance..., but that's a different story... ) in a store. I bet if the dude asks 50 women, one is likely to go to the "friendly lunch" after all.

Believe me. I've hung out with good looking guys everywhere. In school, at work, at bars, AT CHURCH! I've seen women pull some BOLD stuff...
LOL you don't even have to be tall or good looking. Just the other day, at Quick Chek I saw one of the local town drunks pick up a decent looking woman, and this is at a FREAKING CONVENIENCE STORE. He was actually telling her that he's been banned from all the bars in the area. As far as I know he's a real loser from what other people have told me. They were chatting in the dining area of the store and they were all over each other. Me and my friends had to stifle our laughs, when they left the place together I was half-tempted to follow them with my car, so I could ruin their moment by shouting "Go get em tiger!" from the window but I decided not to. LMAO

You have to be kidding me... A decent-looking woman? Really?

She wasn't model material but for her age (looked like late 40s) she wasn't bad. She wasn't overweight. I think the bum is in his 30s, he's not a bad looking guy, not like your stereotypical bum. My point is that, given this guy's attitude and demeanor, its obvious that he's a nose-picker with no future. And yet he still had no problem getting the lady's number and leaving with her.

Then I can see it... Some women would do that.

I'm sure I could get a date, girlfriend, or fwb, but the problem is, I want someone I find attractive. Otherwise, what's the point?
