Reddit isnвЂ™t known for being female-friendly — in fact quite the opposite. But the social news websiteвЂ™s notoriously вЂњanti-womanвЂќ users apparently do value female Redditor’s opinions when it comes to dating. The thread вЂњLadies of Reddit, please help us male Redditors out: What is the best way to approach you in public if we’re interested in you?вЂќ has garnered 3,518 comments since the query was posted on the night of July 29th.
And if that conversation is any indication, the women — and men — of Reddit have a lot to say about the art of approaching a potential female romantic interest. One piece of advice that cropped up continually throughout the thread is the importance of a confident attitude:
StellaBelle1: Walk up and say hi. Start up a general conversation about where you’re at and see how she reacts. If she keeps eye contact and is pleasant, continue on and ask her out; if she is avoiding eye contact and being short with what she says, move on. Just be confident (not cocky) when you approach and smile. * * * * * WiiNotFit 211: You have to do the hard part of playing it by ear and just approaching them, saying hi, and talking to them in a very confident and non-confrontational manner . Just be confident, if you are, it doesn’t matter what you say.
You know what doesnвЂ™t strike the women of Reddit as confident and sexy? Terrible pick-up lines:
Creamy_Peaches 966: I prefer someone who can just say hello to me and be forward about it without automatically using cheesy pick up lines or asking me to sleep with them.
Female commenters seem to be split on their preferences about being approached at work. Some users expressed that they would be flattered:
drocks: I had a guy come up to me at work and said I’ve never done something like this before but I just had to tell you that you are beautiful and see if I could take you out sometime. Continuer la lecture de « How To Approach A Woman, According To Women On Reddit »
