There are so many worthwhile females in the gym and I never really see anyone hitting on them (except this one awesome fat dude in his 60s--he seems to get a lot a laughs out of them so he must know something). I get IOIs from some hot women pretty often actually (e.g. repeated, sometimes prolonged eye contact, smiles, etc.), but have absolutely no idea how to start a conversation with any of them. I feel paralyzed by my own ignorance and incompetence in this area. The opportunities seem there for the taking, but I don't know how to get started. Then, there's the issue of keeping an interaction going. I get really positive responses from females who I have assisted in using equipment. They seem very pleased by my assistance, but then I tend to flit off and get on with my workout, wherein I get that puzzled look like "was he hitting on me or not?"
Any thoughts on gym game?
