First off is you have to approach a lady that you would like to know. Women have great smell. This does not mean you need to wear cologne, but it does mean you have to smell and look clean. They can understand a man who works hard and they admire that, when it comes to appearance.
Next is to be friendly, not overly but in a nice way. Women love a man with manners, and politeness. You can be physically not ready to meet a women but when one comes along manners and politeness goes along ways. Make sure your breath does not smell. Next is to be confident in your actions, A man that is not sure about themselves turns women away. There is a difference between confident and cocky, do not be cocky. Do not suffocate a women with how close you get to them, remember they like their space and will invite you in when they are ready. DO NOT ENTER WITHOUT AN INVITE, you will know by their actions…ie.a touch, a whisper. This is important in befriending a women, remember you are being a friend and not trying to “bed” them. Shame on you if that is your intentions.
Talk to them, learn about them, ask them questions about them. What they do for fun, likes, dislikes. DO NOT TALK ALL ABOUT YOURSELF. Look them in the eyes when talking to them, NOT AT THEIR BODY, they will let you know when they are ready for that. Respect that.
Women like compliments give it to them when you notice something different about them, hair, nails, how sharp they look. Drooling is not allowed.
REMEMBER WOMEN ARE NOT DUMB, AND KNOW WHAT YOU ARE AFTER WHEN YOU APPROACH THEM. BEING A FRIEND GOES ALONG WAYS.
