As men, sometimes we spend so much time thinking up inventive ways, or simply mustering the courage, to approach women, that we can forget that they will sometimes be the aggressors. It's hard to sit tight and expect women to just come up and talk to you. And even when the female is the aggressor, she can have the same hesitations when approaching you. To make her, and your life easier, all you need is a subtle gimmick that serves as a talking point when she is planning to make her move.
What sort of subtle gimmick you say? Well, there are several at your disposal but I've put down the three most successful to use at your leisure.
1. The headband - I know, it sounds effing stupid. What in the hell does a headband have to do with getting women to talk to you? Well I can tell you right now, you're probably not going to look as cool as this guy:
But you'll probably look marginally cooler than this guy:
And that's all the start you'll need. The usual rules of douchebaggery apply, so be sure not to be sitting or standing there thinking you're too cool for school; just go about your business as if you aren't wearing a headband at all. The douchebag scheme actually works too but it depends on what you're looking for in a girl and that often involves you doing more of the work yourself.
2. Wear two different colored shoes - Man, I am giving away a major trade secret here. I'd be a little more reserved about doing so, except it's obvious. I actually started doing this with running shoes because I frequently end up looking down at the ground while running and it was a way to keep things kind of interesting. That, and I'm kind of a douchebag. Again, you're treading a fine line, but if you don't carry yourself as a total prick in general, you're cooking with gas here. You would not believe the sheer number of conversations I've had with people solely based on me wearing two different colored shoes.
3. Wear your underwear on the outside - This is a copycat effort straight from the big man himself: Superman
. I don't necessarily recommend the light blue unitard, especially at black tie functions, but if you are looking to get noticed, just put those underwears on the outside. Ever wonder what the big fucking deal is about Superman? It's not that people manage not to recognize him with only a crap pair of glasses on his face; it's not the giant "S" emblazoned on his chest; it's not the superhuman strength, the x-ray vision (that radiation is bad for you), the gift of flight, or even the need for a kryptonite condom
...it's those crazy red undies staring out at us.
