    Talking to girls.

    I've decided I must start talking to the girls out in public I find attractive. There's been plenty of girls that start conversations with me usually just by being interested in what I'm drawing but I've never tried being the one to start the conversation.

    It shale be like everything else I'm afraid of, ill do it and ill feel good that I did.

    Never talk to strangers is a lie.

    Discuss talking to girls, and why it's awesome talking to them

    I never had a problem talking to girls. But as soon as I liked one of them, I was unable to talk normally anymore. Everything I said sounded stupid and I would look back on those conversations afterwards and cringe.

    A couple of years ago I had a rep come see me in my office from some employment agency. She gave me a calender. She was super hot, I got so flustered and nervous talking to her that she actually asked me if I was in pain.

    I'm married now so all that sexual tension with strange girls has dissipated. If there's anything that I want to talk to my wife about which makes me shy, I skype her at her work.

    I just get drunk and dance at them or just jump into the middle of a conversation that I have been eves dropping on. The best place to meet the ladies is at fastfood joints after the bars start to close.

    Is there really such a thing as the "best place" to meet girls? I see them everywhere.

    Cept the internet.

    (Btw regarding Paprika. R.I.P Satoshi Kon, your movies are the stuff of top notch anime)

    Talking to girls - hell, I just talk to every girl I see, attractive or no. Simply put, the more girls you talk to the better you get at it. Using your art as a conversation starter isn't too bad an idea, I tend to just use a couple of jokes to break the ice and go from there.

    As for where to meet girls, life itself, outside. When you're waiting at a bus stop, shopping, in the line for a movie at the cinema - nothing wrong with just starting conversations most of the time, so long as the subject is more or less relevant to the situation. Hell, I even talk to girls all over the internet itself. That's more or less the most interesting place because you know that you've at least got something to talk about if you're on the same site.

    Hey, girls are people too, you know. I don't think there's anything special in talking to girls. Okay, I really can't say that as I'm a girl myself. BUT I find it just normal that guys come to talk to me as most of my friends are male. How to act with ladies then? Well, be polite and don't do anything stupid but don't change your personality on purpose as they will probably notice and start thinking what the heck is wrong with your real self if you have to act un-naturally. So be yourself and do it without thinking it as a big deal. If it doesn't work, remember there are other girls and most of people don't even notice if a person talking to them does something slightly silly. And online talking is even easier.

    The dreams are just another reality.

    Well, you certainly won't find womens on the internet.
    Especially not on conceptArt.

    Talking to girls.

    On a more serious note,
    Girl's aren't /THAT/ different, you know.

    But If you're going to dart around and talk to attractive girls just make sure your actions won't be seen as suspicious.
    If A strange lad started following me I'd be silently wondering if they're going to shank me and run away with my money.

    But then again, that's just me.

    "How you doin`?" + a smirk usually does the trick.
    But then again, rarely are people blessed with such charming physique like myself, so I have no idea how it would turn out for the rest of you mortals. Sorry!

    SenEnd: Just pick your moment and pounce. Sure some will run away screaming, but it's all about playing the odds :p.

    Seriously though, the first thing you need to do is smile. (And you can't fake it.)

    Then you need to asses the situation in terms of whether you want a long-term relationship or just a fuck-buddy, and whether your 'suiter' feels the same way.

    Don't worry too much about being nervous/awkward, alot of the time that is how people say 'I like you', the girl will understand.

    PS. Satoshi Kon is dead D: that really really sucks. The world seemed like a better place before i learned that.

    No, no, best not start talking to girls. One might decide to come home with you and then you'll have to talk to her ALL THE TIME. Imagine having to do such an uncomfortable and fearsome thing first thing in the morning! Nope, better avoid the whole thing.

    My problem was never so much talking to girls as talking to anyone. Still a problem. When I was young I had the separate problem that girls didn't want to talk to me.

    As a girl I'd say make your intentions clear. If you just want a friendly chat then let that be it or if you approach with some other intent in mind, may that be long term or short and spicy, then don't try so hard to hide it. the so-called friend-flirt with someone you barely know is awkward, even more if you are nervous around girls.

    Talking to cats, is there really any good place to talk to cats? Should I crack lolcat jokes?

    *Edit

    Also, crack lots of dick and fart jokes, burp and scratch your man parts, and then club them and drag them home.

    I'm pretty much just as uncomfortable talking to boys and girls... So eh. I don't know the difference. Girls are generally cuter, though. That can complicate things.

    Being nervous and upfront is one thing. Don't be so desperate. There's nothing like some guy coming up to me saying "I have a small penis and I'm afraid you won't date me because of it". o.O

    I beg to differ, once you've got a spouse and job there really isn't much reason to go out and talk to anyone ever again.

    Nobody outside your work or home has anything you need, if you want to avoid the spouse just pretend you don't have time 'cause of work, and you can use your spouse as an excuse to cut out of work. It's bulletproof!

    *approach girl as if she was a vendor*

    "Hello I'll take a short and spicy, please."

    EDIT: Well I suppose some girls are "vendors" of sorts...

    I talk to anyone - bus stop, queue for the cash machine, etc. It's always best where people aren't moving fast or are just waiting. Girls aren't a sub-species btw. As long as you're not threatening, most people will chat. I meet some interesting people and it's amazing how quickly they'll tell you their life story. Listening is the key.
