    How to approach a girl in one easy step: Stop masturbating to porn.
    Everything else will come naturally.

  • Daniel Roberts 2 years ago

    Why would I want to get a girlfriend? I could just hire an escort.
    Girlfriends cost a lot of money and you have to worry about anniversaries,
    Christmas, birthdays etc. Plus she’ll treat you like a utility. And in the
    end, she’ll just leave you for a hotter looking guy after leaving you
    broke. Zoosk must really make a lot of money trying to sell the love dream
    to guys that don’t know any better and are clueless.

    step 1: be rich step 2: be tall step 3: be a professional athelete

    once you have those 3 it doesn’t matter what the fuck you say to them, they
    won’t even notice you’re a total dumbass without any education.

  • jeste4187 2 years ago

    The approach is easy. Either make a lot of money or seem like you have a
    lot of money and women come flocking to you because all women need
    financial stability. It’s nature.

    The key to the game is practice. Start from the bottom and work yo way to
    the top. It’s all about practice.

    Start talking to ugly girls first and slowly work yo way up to dimes and
    five stars. Give it some time and you’ll be owning the game.

    Find God first, then maybe work on finding a godly woman.

    This whole meat market that the dating game has become is just filthy and
    worthless. Also online dating is for autistic people.

  • Austin Weiss 2 years ago

    Haha. I do all of the above except ask for a number. I guess I need to do
    the last step when I actually feel like going on a date. :)

  • Bobby Gaines 2 years ago

    Very nice, and thank you for the female perspective. I think too many guys
    (myself included) get wrapped up in making this perfect impression and
    that’s why many (including myself) will stay longer than they need to, as
    if they’re trying to prove something. It really is just about making
    connections and sometimes it can be a quick process and sometimes not, but
    I liked all the points you touched on and hopefully women recognize how
    nervous this makes guys too, so if we say some weird things at times,
    that’s why

    approaching a women is now “street harassment” bad advice.

  • Lord Zizumias 2 years ago

    I’m the kind of guy that wants to know a girl before wanting to ask her
    out. Unfortunately this doesn’t work for me because I always get friends
    zoned and then they say “Id rather us stay friends” or ” I don’t want to
    datell you, you’re like a brother to me. ” It’s fucking bullshit.

    Men – don’t follow advice from a woman – trust me the whole ordeal is too
    much trouble to be worth it – odds are you will end up heart broken with no
    money – worse situation you’ll be divorced and paying child support for the
    next 18 years for a child you will never get to see again – and if you are
    loaded before marriage – you ALSO get to pay Vagimony.

    This is what you should do – Look up MGTOW – watch all the video’s from
    Sandman, Thunderfoot (the ones about MGTOW), and other random men that put
    of great content. Also check out the video’s from The great Atheist about
    how feminism is really just some fucked up swill that you should never
    drink! Next check out the videos by Karen Straughan / Girl writes what if
    you want to hear more info about some real shit from an actual woman –
    (watch the early video’s with her in the kitchen those are the good ones,
    the honey badger radio stuff is meh.)

    Whatever you do – don’t go MRA – stay MGTOW – stay true to yourself! – and
    never be a white knight mangina! Don’t enable feminazi’s anymore!

    this ? Yeah that’s right boy your ass better stay anonymous because I would
    make fun of how desperate you “actually” is any one buying in to this shit!

    clingy if your personality is inviting you get the girl but you need game
    as well.

    in my years of meeting random women there’s one common truth women love
    breaking a mans balls

  • James Liguori 2 years ago

    Wow! This was super insightful. Step 1, walk up to a complete stranger
    (no advise on appropriate locations; ie: bar, supermarket, work, gym,
    playground, etc…). Step 2, say “hi” and ask questions to help you learn
    about her but don’t creep her out (no advise on appropriate questions).
    Step 3, ask for her phone number before you wear out your welcome (if you
    even were welcome).

    I’ll share my experience: if women are in a group of 3 or more or if they
    are in a location that involves a specific task or goal (ie; a gym or
    workout class, school), they are not looking to meet guys.

    Well done (yeah, that’s sarcasm). How long has it been since this approach
    has been used on you? Where? What did they ask? Were they a complete

    How to get a guy…don’t be a bitch that acts like you deserve the world
    just because u have a clam between your legs.

  • Huggy Bear 2 years ago

    She’s full of shit. If you cant convince a girl within the first 5 seconds
    of meeting that she ‘wants’ to sleep with you, then you’ve already fucked
    up. Females are THAT fickle and its MEN’s fault for putting chicks on such
    a high pedestal. If you guys didnt try so fucking hard to cater to bitches,
    they would stop acting like entitled little fucking princesses!

    Anyhow, the tone you set in the beginning, sets the tone for the entire

    Do you constantly want to be around this person? Do you constantly want to
    talk about the same thing over & over again? Do you constantly want to be
    indecisive & introverted?

    If you want to be a pain in my satanic ass, then take mine & her angelic
    advice & keep watching this.

  • Volstreed 2 years ago

    Hahaha, the “don’t tap on the shoulder and then ask” along with the “go
    without a pick up line” advice was probably good. Also, strategically not
    sitting there like you will be in that spot all night until you decide if
    you even want to talk much less get the OP’s number was great.

  • chris kooren 2 years ago

    step 1. be good looking, have money, and a good car and a good personality.
    step 2. exist
    step 1. not be so good looking ,have money or a good personality
    step 2. don’t worry about it, probably not gonna happen anyway

    …. I may be a bit bitter.
