How To Meet A Woman On The Street

By J. Ryu

You're walking down the road, minding your very own business, then there it is, an incredibly cute girl strolling along staring at her iphone. You're convinced she is your dream girl and possible future wife and if she walks away from your life, you'll be losing out on the chance of a lifetime. What exactly do you do? What can you do?

Arguably, meeting a woman cold, off the street is one of the hardest pickups to do. A woman on the street feels open and vulnerable so if a strange man walks up, her guard will be up. Have you ever had a stranger walk up to you on the street? Feels weird doesn't it? Then should you give up and let her walk out of your life? No Way!

1. Eye contact

As soon as you see "the one," take action! A street approach has to feel spontaneous to the woman, not like a rehearsed canned pick up or they will feel uncomfortable. Make eye contact as soon as possible and keep your eyes locked, too, so she knows that it wasn't just chance that your eyes met.

Once eye contact has been made, make sure she knows you are trying to get her attention. Wave, nod - something obviously attention getting. You want to establish contact before you approach which helps the woman prepare mentally for a stranger accosting them.

2. Open Body Language

Upon approach, use open body language! Make certain your body language is not confrontational and direct but responding to her reactions toward you. Wear an innocent smile! A smile is welcoming, contagious, communicates openness and innocence and will help lower her guard.

Incorporate hand gestures into your conversation. This will not only help her follow your conversation if you're somewhere busy, but it will also keep her attention on you. On the street, it will be easy for her to get distracted, particularly if she isn't totally convinced that it was worth stopping to talk.

Use your hands to keep her eyes focused on you. Using your hands will also display confidence. Don't keep them in your pockets with your shoulders slouched. You know what you want and you think she'll want it too. Make that Clear.

3. The Game

On a street approach you want to introduce yourself and what you're up to as soon as you're in so you're no longer a stranger to her. You also want to keep your lines and conversation light, innocent, and casual. The trick in a street pickup is to lower her raised guard. This is done by you conveying a relaxed, casual, innocent vibe. No canned pickup lines in street approaches under any circumstances!

A busy woman on the street has somewhere to go so you have to be quick and bold. Don't run after her, your eye contact and waving should be bold enough to convince her to stop. From there, you know what to do. Flirt, compliment, engage. Make her so intrigued by you that she wants to know more.

Do not get too friendly too fast, keep in mind that you just met on the street and you do not even know if she's single, but if her body language is saying "yes," go ahead and ask for a chance to see her once again. Stopping someone on the street is a little weird if you don't handle yourself properly. The technique is getting her attention then letting her know how innocent and honest your intentions are.
