Most guys are scared to approach a woman for the first time almost anywhere but especially so on the street. It is not because they haven’t thought about it. I am sure that every guy out there has seen a cute girl on the street and wanted to go up to her and talk to her but was too shy or embarrassed. It is not really that difficult, however.
The first thing you need to remember is that anywhere you go, talking to a girl for the first time may seem a bit awkward. So whether it is the coffee shop or Main Street, you have to know what you are doing. You don’t want to just approach her and scare the crap out of her so that she thinks you are some weirdo. The way you approach her will be the difference between her telling her friends about the nice guy she meet in front of the coffee shop or telling them about the creepy dude who approached her in front of the coffee shop.
This may sound totally stupid but go online and talk one of those dating skills test. Really, do it! Why? Because you will see if you have the skills you need for dating and what kind of social skills you have. Like I said, it may sound dumb but they really can depict the real you when it comes to dating. However, the only way it can do this is if you are totally honest in answering the questions.
So what happens if you find out that your social skills are not the greatest in the world? Well you can learn. How do you do that? You start by approaching woman in an environment that isn’t so overwhelming at first. Start with friends of friends, dance clubs or social organizations. This way there are groups around and you may feel more at ease. Keep this up until you feel more comfortable in the way you approach women.
So now it is time to hit the streets and please don’t be that creepy guy. Start with baby steps like talking to the old lady waiting at the bus stop. Simply go up to her and sit next to her, but not too close and say hi. Old ladies love to talk so it should not be hard to strike up a conversation with her. Then find a girl that you think you might like to talk with and approach her. Stand at a distance, however. Do not get too close; remember personal space. Say hi to her and then comment her on something. Like maybe she has a pretty scarf or cool looking boots.
Keep this up and try and talk to a couple of girls a day and you will be a pro at this in no time. Who knows, maybe one day you will find a girl that you really hit it off with. At that point, you may want to back off talking to girls on the street or anywhere else for a while until you figure out where the relationship is going.
