I've read several posts about people having trouble connecting, being afraid to approach, or receiving bad approaches so I think it may help if our community posts positive tips to help us connect. In spite of my picture profile, I'm pretty laid back. I prefer it if a guy approaches me about things of interest or commonalities. What say you?
You are absolutely correct, I know that there are men out here who are just as scared or should i say feel rejected if they would send a wink or email and do nget a response,just keep looking and the one for you will come through.
Well, I made a commitment to myself...each time I visit and see someone interesting I send a wink (even if I am a couple of years outside the guy's age range). Totally outside of my comfort zone but I do it. I decided to go 'full on' for 2 months (and that includes being a 'gold member'). Previously, I always presumed guys will/should make the first move, but men are sometimes just as insecure as we are in this online dating thing. The worse that can happen is they don't wink/email back. I have had good response.
I firmly believe someone will recognize a quality, drama free and interesting woman when he sees her!
Never hurts to just try. You can't always gauge by their appearance whether they are approachable or not. Some people say that I look unapproachable...but I'm very approachable...I just have to remember to smile every once in a while...
