Time and time again, I will be sitting on the train on my way to work in the city.. An attractive girl will get on the train.. she'll look at both sides of the carriage and most often we'll make eye contact if she notices me. We'll lock eyes and she might smile if she is game enough (I give a friendly, but not overly-friendly smile if you get what I mean) and it'll be sexy .. but if we made eye contact from a distance... she will generally just freeze and sit where she is standing just out of being shy I reckon, sometimes she will just sit near me - this is still hard as I will have to make up some BS reason to talk to her (any good pointers here?).... but when its farther away then its even harder as it's just like well f*ck.. it's a big investment not only from my point of view but also from hers too if she sees me coming all the way over to approach her. Unless I had something killer to say to her like something personal about her that I could visibly see, any pick up attempt would be seen a mile away.
When these girls get off the train, however, it's like a sharp pain hits me as I say goodbye to any chance I had with these prospects.
What's a non-pathetic way to strike up a conversation with these attractive strangers without coming off as someone they will need to avoid?
It's just that whenever I see anyone walking around on the carriages.. they may be looking for a newspaper or looking at signs/maps on the walls.. but if they are wandering around looking bored.. it's just like.. holy sh*t.. this guy is a f*cking drug addict..
Can't help it.. it's automatic... I don't want to be that guy as I approach the girl haha.
