Reply To: Hot to approach with legitimate reasons?
Sure but you don’t NEED the pretense on the opener. I’ve had plenty of girls I’ve approached in the subway platform with “hey, excuse me?” (girls look at me).. “sorry to stop you, but I just saw you and I thought you looked great” (girl: oh thank you blabla). “I don’t mean to be so forward, but I’m a bit late for a meeting at work.. maybe I could grab your number and we could have a coffee sometime in the area?” And she gives me her number. No conversation, no nothing. Happened plenty of times to me just like that. Now maybe you could argue that when we meet up for a date the “pretense” might be when we sit down for coffee or go for a walk, or a drink or whatever. But to me that’s just getting to know the person. To get the number, the pretense of talking about her bag isn’t required. Although it might win you some brownie points that she can see you’re a bit sociable.
