Admit it, when it comes to approaching a girl,you do get flustered or get a lump in your throat. Well, attracting the ‘fairer sex’ is no child’s play! If you think that the ludicrous filmy “what’s your mobile number?” is the thing, then, my friend, you are terribly mistaken! While approaching a girl is not as simple as asking her out at the very first moment , it is no rocket science either. A perfect dose of chutzpah, tactfulness and precision is all you need. So, no need to be smitten by solitude as we have got you a ten interesting ways that will help you nail it! Choose what suits you the best and leave the rest!
10. LOCATION LOCUS
Location is of supreme importance. Of course, no girl expects the Bollywood style maudin violin music at the background when you approach her! But a comfortable hang out can surely do the trick as girls tend to be more open to meeting and kickoff a conversation when they are relaxed and chilling out. Basically, places like grocery shop, veggie market, gym, bus stop etc. are a big NO since she’ll be preoccupied with other important stuff than give a damn about you. So if you approach a girl in a cafe or say, a bookstore, it automatically bolsters up your chances of getting the ‘big hit’!
9. PLAYING THE ‘ BARMY BOY’ ROLE
Yup, playing the gauche can be an effective way too. And if you’re hanging out with your friends when you spot her, all the more better. Just pretend that you’re losing interest in the conversation and got distracted as the charming lady has got all your attention. In short, simple, subtle cajolery. Touch of ingenuity you say?
8. THE COMMON FRIEND MANTRA
Yes, afterall what are friends for? They are part and parcel of all our goofy and wacky adventures. Having a common friend who knows the girl you wish to approach is a blessing in disguise! So, if this is your case, then thank your stars dude and go ahead! (‘Love, Breakups, Zindagi’…Remember that film?)
7. THE ‘TOUNGUE-IN-CHEEK’ WAY
If you think that some sugarcoated flattery will do the needful, then, my friend, let me tell you, it’s nothing but a recipe of disaster! Bucketful of adulation from a complete stranger is the last thing a girl can find attractive. A sound sense of humour is a much more appealing trait! So, it would be better if you pass a casual jocular remark about the situation, people or the place. If she laughs, you’ve earned it!
6. ACTING OUT THE ‘LOST STRANGER’
Yeah, its an age old trick that surely works for almost all newbies! Asking for instructions to some random place, a bus route or a nearby bookshop is the most convenient and easiest way to approach the jeune femme that has caught your attention. (Excuse me, do you know the nearest metro station?)
5. DRESSED TO KILL
Fashion sense that suits your personality is another way to make things simpler while approaching a girl. . A well groomed personality and appearance adds to the overall charm and appeal making it easier for you to approach the girl. Whether it’s a casual and cool tee and denim combo, or a sophisticated attire, choose what suits you the best. How else do you think James Bond has managed to be a chick-magnet for decades? (P.S: Be original and try not to be over-the-top swanky, We don’t like Karan Johar!)
4. “MAY I HELP YOU?”
No need to play the knight in a shining armour to the damse in distress. Just be cool and casual and offer help. A lift, a walk to a nearby place, instruction to some random place and so on. Once you have done the needful, you can easily steer the conversation as you desire.
3. A NEAT CHAT AND WALK AWAY (LIKE A BOSS!)
Make a brief approach that includes a smile and some small talk. Once its over just walk away. It no way reeks of arrogance, this just shows that you are confident and not a needy lovelorn creature. And it becomes all the more simple to return and engage with her again with less gawkiness. (Ever heard of Mr. Darcy from ‘Pride and Prejudice’?)
2. THE DAUNTLESS OPENER
Now this one is not for newbies but for those who are “like a pro” in this field. A straight and confident “Hey!” can also do wonders. After all, a perfect sense of timing, precision and boldness is all you need to strike a perfect repartee. However, being flustered or edgy might ruin everything,so make sure that you’re well prepared before you make the move.
1. THE SILENT GLANCE GAME
This is our chart-topper since it’s the most sureshot way and has been scientifically proven to be the most effective of all. A simple, casual glance now and then is enough to rouse her curiosity. Once she looks at you, try to lock a gaze for a few seconds as randomly as possible. Make sure you dn’t end up oggling the poor lady, a creep is the last thing a girl wants to hang out with! If she reciprocates your look, tadaaa…you have hit the nail!
