    Please make a thread detailing your exploits. Youtube videos would make you God tier.

    Well, im glad you are doing good and having good results doing it. Me personally it would never cross my mind to just random having a conversation with someone stranger in the supermarket. That is what social media and nightclubs,bars are for, for me atleast.

    I was never one to go up to random women & hit on them. It was never my style. I'm a bit on the quiet side so I met most of the women that I dated, hooked up with & had relationships with when I was introduced to them by mutual friends, when they approached me or if we had a class or worked together, etc. I was never much of a pick-up artist but I did just fine.

    And since I don't have much of a social life since I don't frequent bars anymore & all of my long-time friends are living in different states than me, I do the vast majority of socializing online. With Facebook being my go-to place for meeting women. I met my wife, Jana in a FB UFC group of all places. And now, I've got a very attractive 36-year-old woman interested in me. All because of what I say & the way I conduct myself online.

    So, there are all sorts of different approaches to meeting & wooing women.

    Approaching women has always been somewhat intimidating, more so for some personality types than others.

    It's just much less norm these days. Dating apps seem to be the primary method for meeting people. And if you're especially introverted and/or socially awkward, it's a lot easier to shut yourself off and just watch porn and bitch about women, hence incels and the like.

    With tinder why would you approach women. Just ask every woman within 30 miles to fuck

    Approaching a woman who is giving you clear signals is a lower risk, but believe it or not, you can run into a girl giving no signals who'll give you her number... hell she may even have a RBF and if you go talk to her that icy front will melt and she'll be receptive. I'm not saying there aren't girls who don't want to be bothered, but it's not always gonna be blatant flirting going on like some Hollywood movie.

    Yes, you can meet women anywhere. We are social beings, why does that make a person a "weirdo"? I don't get it. People meet bfs, gfs, future husbands, wives, fuck buddies, etc. in gyms, at malls, at grocery stores, at baseball games, etc. My sister in law met her boyfriend at a carwash that happened to be closed when they went there.

    With a beard like that no wonder you don't lack for confidence.

    Man, I actually remember some of the pics you've posted with girls you were with. Don't mean to sound offensive, but I remember always thinking "this dude is 100% punching well above his pay grade."

    Good stuff.

    I was never really one to pickup girls in a bar like that. Just wasn’t comfortable with it. School and work is how I got laid. The internet helped me pump those numbers up.
    I would dance with random girls at a club and sometimes that would lead to more but that’s about it.

    If a guy is afraid his approach is going to get him #metoo'd, he might want to rethink his approach to meeting women.

    In fact he's probably going for it because he knows what the reaction will be. Other dude is salty confirmed.

    Pretty sure women often think you are a creep and/or pussy if you keep staring at them and never talking to them.

    I think the old fashioned rule is 2 (or 3) eyefucks then approach.

    Real answer

    Not afraid. They are just modifying the approach. Its a mix of both now for new generation. Some guys will do everything traditional, walk up to the chick and some guys will make it all happen through social media or using apps that show people in your close proximity and also of course general dating apps.


    From what I seen, and how I run my stuff. Its a hybrid of both social media/meeting people in person.

    Also women in general doubt guys with good Socia Media because so many people do fake pics, misrepresent there lives on there stories, etc. So a strong social media game still needs to be backed by a strong in person game when you actually date. And fakers, catfish fall to wayside.

    While a traditional guy can be like “I dont really use social media, dont care about it” and if anything most women respond well to that surprisingly. Probably because social media/dating apps have become the biggest tool of men cheating in relationships. But you guys arent ready for that conversation lol

    To the both of you:

    I made a thread a month or two ago about leaving Canada and coming to Murica. My town is RAMPANT with these woke fucks. That and unlike Americans, we can get charged for sexual harassment for approaching. That and an American comedian was fined 11,000 in my town for telling a Lesbian joke. Yes this did happen.

    Also, if I do approach, I would be approaching:
    Web capture_14-10-2021_203914_www.google.ca.jpeg


    Literally the dude in your avatar is more bangable than women in my town.

    That being said, I would approach an American woman in a heart beat because:

    If I get rejected then life goes on because an American Woman was grown up with the notion of "Freedom of speech" here in Canada we are grown up with "This is a hate speech!" and this means that if I get rejected then its no big deal. An American woman knows that its natural for a man to want to give it a shot and there is some respect for a man to at least approach.

    I love Americans because regardless of their flaws, they believe in opportunity and giving everyone a shot. In Canada, we believe in shutting people down. Glass half empty vs glass half full.
