    I once dated a girl with very low self-esteem. She would gain weight easily, yet was more often a pretty sight with wonderful shapes. She enjoyed watching French movies, taking photos, and seeing the local bands. Her sex drive and mine matched quite perfectly, both of us being young and very excited, and so we had something successful to share. Prior to this, she had had a serious relationship - maybe a year or two in length - with some guy in her class. She refused to sleep with him, and was pained to learn that he would satisfy himself elsewhere, with another girl who would become pregnant - the event which led to his confession and her misery. Much later, in our lustful activities, we took each other's virginity, and there followed a golden age for us both. Perhaps this is why she would tell me that she loved me, not two months after we met. Unsure of what to do, and maybe a little confused from the abundance of sex, I told her that I loved her as well. I truly did enjoy myself. When my high school crush, a fascinating girl who would later alter the course of my life, told me that she liked me, I explained my romantic situation without much sadness and wished her well... But soon, my poor girlfriend began to express an unhappiness with the friends I surrounded myself with - an equal mix of good fellows and beautiful girls. She became envious of certain girls, despite that there were no hints of betrayal. Soon, she would confront me about my schooltime activities, which were all innocent things, but things she could only have knowledge of by means of espionage! I became unhappy with our relationship and attempted to end everything, but when she started to cry and tell me about her pain, I told her that I was gravely mistaken and accepted the pleasure she offered, there in her little car. Of course, her spies were enemies of mine, and with their own personal vendettas, they continued feeding her knowledge of any girl that I hugged hello, or ate with, or looked at... They told her of all the girls, except for one: a delightful and funny girl who gave me many compliments. She was a thin girl, and not very pretty, but she made me smile and laugh a lot. With our mutual friends, we went to the movie theater together (my girlfriend was not present), and at the back of the theater, watching whatever it was that we were watching, I suddenly decided to hold this new girl's hand. While our companions drove to a nearby bowling alley, the girl and I kissed each other in the backseat and felt happy. My girlfriend would, the next night, accuse me of seeing a different girl, based on her faulty information. I told her that I hadn't been seeing that girl, and that I was tired of her paranoia. We broke up and fought with each other on the phone. I found many more enemies. The new girl and I began dating, but she left me after two weeks for her ex-boyfriend. I was baffled and I visited my ex-girlfriend and kissed her. We did not rekindle our love during that time, which was the winter break of school, and when I returned on the next semester, I would ask out that major high school crush of mine. That is an entirely different story.

    I can verify the girl was hot and they left the beer fest holding hands.

    Ha, I'm so glad I'm not alone. I think it's worse if you are the type of guy who gets along better with women than men. Most of my friends are women, so I need fairly explicit signals. I'm getting better, and I can now see all the chances I missed in my past.

    And Kat, unless the conversation is VERY bizarre, I always like being approached by a woman. Someone just making eye contact is not going to get me over to them, they could just be looking at something weird stuck to my shirt or trying to calculate my heart attack risk. If she says something first, then I know that she wants to talk to me at a minimum. Never hurts to talk. However, if the woman is way too young for me, or way "out of my league", I'm still going to talk, but I might not be as engaged because I will get a little "what does she want?" defensive. You seem to have a bit of an inferiority complex, so this might be you and you don't know it.

    To sum up, a super-hot girl approaching me is definitely welcomed, but I'm probably going to be questioning her motives. I can guarantee that no one is finding you "repulsive" unless you are talking crazy talk.

Then smile and look away. Then look back again in a couple of minutes and smile . It's easy, he will get the hint, and also get that you are kinda shy. It may be a game in a way but it works & he will definitely approach you if he's interested.
    I agree with this, I know it may seem like a coy game but it works. I am also comfortable enough in my own skin to approach a guy if I need to but I have done the sly glance from across the room while dancing. Then I would go up to the bar to get a drink and the guy I was slyly glancing almost always found me there to start chatting.

    YES! I know women in their 40's who still need to do this. They jump from relationship to relationship because they don't feel pretty unless some boy is telling them they are pretty. If you can't look in the mirror and say "I am fucking awesome" then there is no point in trying to find a guy who thinks it.

    Going on my first okcupid date this weekend. Kind of surprised I found someone this interesting this fast. I've always been kind of skeptical when it comes to dating sites.

    I usually tell people that "the more you drink, the hotter I look."

    That's it? You should send a follow up text, like "I had fun hanging out with you the other night. How did you enjoy the fest?"

    I tell myself that I'm awesome all the time, because I am.

    As for approaching guys, what works best for me is to say something that will give me more than a one word response or mention something that may be interesting to him. "Hey. What's up?" doesn't get me much, but maybe notice something about him. Maybe his drink of choice? And start talking about it.

    After several e-mails back and forth I just asked Carrie out for a drink. Now I await her reply. This could be huge as I have not asked a stranger out on a date in ........ geez I would rather not say. It's kind of embarrassing.

    About the approaching guys thing: I have no problem with this. I have no problem with being really explicit about my intentions also, so it's very clear.

    However, I find that I end up dating sort of passive, not very confident guys as a result. So I think you have to be cautious about how much you are willing to make the first move and what that means about the tenor that is being set for the rest of the relationship. Learn from my mistakes.

    I hate this conversation! If you know what you don't want then you probably know what you do want. Speak the fuck up already.

    The guy that I've been seeing has been a good sport on deciding what we've had to eat on our dates. He hasn't exactly experienced many types of food that aren't mexican, pizza or hamburgers so my work is cut out for me. On our first date I suggested that we have Thai food since it's one of my favorites and not only did he agree to it, he actually loved it! granted, he only had the pad thai but I also let him try my curry and he seemed to like it too. I really like that he's willing to try new things and on our third date I got him to have sushi for the first time. He said he liked all that we tried (mostly Nigiri and a spider roll) but he did get full after the first round of an all-you-can-eat place, so maybe he didn't like it as much as he said (though he loved the unagi!).

    Date 3 went pretty well and date 4 is this weekend. He may have stayed the night, but I'm not going to confirm anything :-p

    We fooled around quite a bit and the next day he asked if I thought he was moving too fast. I told him that I was far from innocent and had an equal share of the blame on how things went that night but I do want to take things slowly since I have a lot on my plate for the next three months. I feel like "the talk" is coming fairly soon because he followed that up with a "taking things slow is fine, but I don't want to take things too slow either" and I agreed.

    I can see how that can happen. However, speaking for myself, if I go around hitting on everyone, I'm going to get shot down 10 times as much, and this is not going to make me more confident. If someone shows me just a little bit of interest first, I can take it from there. I'm still going to get shot down sometimes, because you ladies are cryptic. But it's like 25% of the time, not 95%.

    But I do still have trouble with that first step into turning things physical, and that's on me. I've been fairly aggressive (for me, anyway) with Ms Veggie Burger, with nothing but positive signals, but I think I still blew the opportunity for a kiss on our first "real" date. I'm determined to remedy this soon though.
