Well it's no secret that feminists are no fans of overt male sexuality, as evidenced by all the articles calling it "male toxicity" and referring to it as if it were a problem that needs urgent fixing. It's not crazy to think that this may have made women more wary of pick-up culture and men in general.

I'm not much more sure than you are. But i have learned one thing: there is a time and a place. A grocery store might be okay, but not if you're out shopping at 2am imo.

It's good to have some kind of interaction first too. Im sure you dont mean literally on the street as someone is walking to where they need to get (have heard many times that people hate being bothered when theyre trying to get somewhere). For example: you're browsing items in your favorite store, and you glance over at a woman. She happens to look at you at the same time. There are 2 things that could happen:

  • she immediately looks away because it was merely a coincidence
  • she holds the eye contact or otherwise shows with her body language that shes interested or open to talking

It's all an art imo. sometimes you just get a bad reaction when you didnt expect one. Sometimes you get a number. Theres just a technique to doing it, and you certainly don't need to be be a model to reach success

Anyone who is over emotional is going to call it creepy, that doesn't mean it is. But do it at the right time and place.

No, but remember the cardinal rule: be attractive, don't be unattractive.

Woman here: It could be due to the general sentiment of "men are disgusting rape machines" that gets pushed here and there, but honestly, despite alarmist reports, 1 in 4 women are not raped, and the majority of women don't think of men as mindless rapebeasts. The trend of focusing a lot on rape right now could be due to feminism, could be due to it being a more exotic type of violence for media outlets to focus on than terrorism at the moment. Probably a little bit of both, and then some things. So despite the hype, most women don't think it's weird for a guy to be chatty, just so long as you're chatting because you want to hear what they have to say. It's ok to want to peruse them, but at least for me, it's off putting for a guy to want to chat just because he wants a date. Like, if you're not interested in what I have to say now (and I mean really interested, not just pretend interested) the date is going to be awkward, and he doesn't even notice. Being less single minded is a secret a lot of people don't get when they're trying to chat people up. Chat for fun, that way, even if you don't get a date, you've had a good time.

Thought that would be helpful for you guys.

  1. Fuck feminism.
  2. You never know unless you just start talking. If she's not into it, she can walk the helly off.
  3. If she's wearing a Trump shirt, she's probably cool. But, If she's got weird colored hair, kick her in the vag. She'd prolly like it.

I would certainly think twice about it. I think that's something women are realizing as well though. If you listen to every time a woman complains about being hit on, there is no place a woman goes in her daily life where it's acceptable to talk to her. This condemns both men and women to a life of loneliness.
