What makes a man want to approach a woman? I know men can be just as shy as women...but what can I do that will make him want to approach me? I keep seeing men and they will smile a big smile but never approach...what's up with that? What can I do to give me the edge over others?

I'm not supermodel material and I'm a little overweight, but still attractive!!

  • i would say smile back if they smile and dont lose eye contact...if your friends are talking to you, while talking to them, always look over and make more eye contact with them again. HECK! peek a boo if there are people in the way...make him laugh from afar. ive made some friends that way.

  • Put yourself out in situations where you are approachable. Standing with a group of girls is intimidating.
    Compliment people on anything you admire as saying nice things to others will build your own confidense.
    Be friendly.. Smile.

    Don't wait for them to come to you. Feel free to say hello to guys to disarm them.

  • It's all about the look. You have to look like you are the sexiest thing in the room. The walk of confidence, and the smile
