OK, I've been having waaaaaay too much fun with this one.
For those of you who suffer from Approach Anxiety because you're unsure of what to say, this could help you tremendously.
I came up with this totally by accident, but now I'm purposely doing this when I'm out in public... especially while shopping. (Mall, grocery store, clothing store, movie store...etc it doesn't matter.)
Here's the scoop:
I was at the grocery store looking at something on the shelf. I had no clue there was a girl behind me & I turned around & bumped right into her. BAM!
So, I immediately use the accident to create some humor & apologize for being a klutz. I basically said, "Dang! Sorry about that. You're right behind me looking at cereal & I'm pushing you straight into the rack... I guess I wanted to make sure you got a REALLY GOOD look at it." And I laugh & wink at her.
She laughs & says, "Oh it's ok, you're fine"
So I reply back with, "Well I KNOW I'm fine" *wink... (implying I'm sexy, in a super cheesy/cheeky way) "but I'm still knocking you into stuff like a crazy man." *playful elbow nudge
We both go about our shopping... laughing a bit more though.
Sooooo I thought to myself, HEY! This would be a great way to "accidentally" meet girls. So I started having these "accidents" on a regular basis whenever I go out.
I purposely keep an eye out for where a good looking girl is, & strategically position myself so I can "accidentally" run into her or cut her off in some way.
Just a couple little steps & OOOOPS again.
Then I commence with the playful "apology" & really sell it.
I've also done it where I set the girl up to run into ME. (Even more fun) I'll say something like "Wow! I'm just here minding my own business, & all of a sudden I'm getting hunted down by crazy ladies in the store." Smile/wink
They get SOOOOO apologetic & surprised... it's hilarious.
But play it up! Big time!
I then go on to tell her, "Actually, it's been the highlight of my day." smile/wink "I could get used to being jolted by attractive girls on a daily basis... where are you gonna be tomorrow??" *elbow nudge/smile/wink
You get the idea.
If you do this a few times, you will absolutely lose your approach anxiety! Because you're not going up to talk to her about fruit, or a shirt, or a movie etc... You're just doing your own thing & then...
"BANG" you bump into each other. THAT is your opener!
All you have to do now is, play it up & have fun.
You can keep jiving with her & start flirting a bit... making her laugh & really have a good time with it. And it makes getting her number a piece of cake too.
Seriously, try this out if you're really shy about approaching. Because this ELIMINATES the approach. It creates a sort of "chance encounter".
You can really get all cheesy with it too, if you want.
You can say things like "Well, fancy running into you here!"
"Wow... some guys might try hitting on you... and I just plain hit you! What a jerk I AM huh?" laugh / wink / smile
Or any other silly, over-the-top cheesy banter lines making bad jokes like that. (Remember, this is day game... you can be complimentary AND cheesy & still get away with it.)
But seriously, this is almost like setting a girl up to approach you! It doesn't get much easier than that.
