Because no one wants to be THAT guy (the one in jail).
Commercials and romantic comedies have made it very difficult to approach an attractive stranger outside of the confines of the internet. That's because in a commerical, if you approach a stranger, soon you will be splitting a piece of gum and necking in a cab. In a rom com, this is how you meet your spouse.
Unfortunately, in life these all play out a little bit differently. Mainly, you get shot down; worst case scenario, you get maced. It can leave you feeling frozen when it comes to approaching women. Luckily, there are seven ways of determining whether or not a woman is down for you to clown.
1. She's nude and beckoning to you.
As a woman, I know that it can be hard for men to read the signs that women give them. That's why when I really want a guy to know he's good to approach, I pull this classic maneuver.
2. She has a neon sign pointing to her vagina.
That's a woman with nookie on her mind. But ask yourself, how is she powering that sign?
3. Her friends are swarming you and singing "Kiss the Girl" from The Little Mermaid.
Anyone with friends who take their role as wing-people seriously deserve to see their efforts rewarding by you rolling up on their sweet, sweet bestie.
4. She's rolling on top of two cars in a suggestive fashion.
5. You're at a bar, and she's alone and NOT reading a book.
If a woman is alone at a bar WITH a book, she's basically saying, "Guys, I was just tired of being at home, so I thought I'd get out of the house. Please leave me alone." If there's no book, and she's sitting scanning the room, be like, "Hi, how are you?" But take note: Just because a woman exists in a space by herself, that's no guarantee that she will welcome you. Please do not kill her if she rejects you.
6. She's tucking her hair behind her ear and screaming, "Oh god, don't let me die alone!"
It's a well-established fact that every time a woman tucks her hair behind her ear she's acknowledging her all encompassing fear of the vast maw of eternity.
7. You make eye contact and she smiles.
Congratulations! The woman you would like to approach does not think you are a serial killer. Now go and prove her right. Unless you are a serial killer, in which case, stop ruining it for everyone.
