How To Get Approached By The Guy You Like
To continue my fishing theme, many successful conversations have begun over nothing more than a lady wandering by on the beach or pier, peering into the catch bucket and asking 'any luck today?' I especially enjoy it when the bucket is empty

Well, I caught you

It's not rocket science. Head up, breathe in the sea air, revel in the beauty of nature and let it flow. ...

I don't mind it at all if I am given the space to approach a man at my own leisure. I can appreciate the shy guy's style of interacting with women. Thank you for the information. I feel I could handle rejection in a much healthier way than a man who is or may be shy would. In that regard, I don't mind taking the initiative to talk to a man who may be shy and getting the ball rolling by taking the lead in that situation. I actually have a modest personality but enjoy the comfort of starting a conversation with a man I am interested in because then I can show a shy man that his attention towards me was not misplaced and get him to open up to me. I have no problem reaching out to a man like this and don't think any less of them for me initiating the first approach. Shy men usually end up being anything but shy once you get to know them

There are plenty of people selling this, for several hundred dollars per seminar.

But seriously, I started cold-approaching women in my early 20s. As soon as you get the first few positive responses, even if there is no further interest, you are pretty much hooked.

Sorry OP, you're no expert in this :-) We women have been giving signals for at least a few thousand years by now, because traditionally that's our role. So it is now built into our nature and we do it instinctively. There may be some awkward girls who don't know how to do this. They are few and probably invisible to men anyway. Now some men are good at reading women correctly, some are horrible at it. But if a woman wants you, she'll make sure you get it.
