    Woo your Crush

    The beautiful face sitting across you in a crowded seminar room, the handsome man reading Hemingway at a distant table in a café, we are susceptible to having crushes every waking hour of our lives.

    The Approach

    This is the biggest hurdle to everything; the approach is one of the biggest questions. Most times we are left to wonder whether we will find it stupid to go up to this person and strike a conversation. When you are approaching your crush you ought to be casual about it, if you who is approaching tend to be nervous, then the approached will never feel comfortable. So go ahead and say something, say anything that would make a little sense.

    Interesting Anecdote

    You know what sort of story sells? An anecdote with an interesting human interest angle and that is what you will start with. You have to start with a very interesting anecdote that would grab the other person’s attention and then the conversation has kicked off, but do not pick something gross or sickening. You can then play your charms and make your way to his or her heart!

    Comment on Something

    Try and look for that common link, it could be the phone this person is using or the book that he or she is reading. Try and comment on something, but be very sure that you aren’t being a blatant flirt when doing so. So wait for that comment on her beautiful eyes or his well trimmed hair, it would freak out the other person. Make a friendly comment on something very common, and watch the other person’s reaction.

    Be Interesting

    You are trying to make a positive impression on someone who doesn’t know you and whom you do not know, so try to be interesting. Be interesting but not bizarre as to scare the other person out. Do not tell him or her, I know what you ate for dinner last night, I have special powers, or I can see there is a dead man looking at you admiring your eyes. Do not venture on topics such as politics and religion at the start, go for all things nice. Try and make an impression so that the person remembers you.

    Ask about Him/Her

    When you have started a conversation it is important that you ask about this other person instead of going on and on aboutyourself. You have to let this other person take part in the conversation or else your approach is a failure. Hence, ask the person what it is like to be that person, and what are his or her thoughts, or likes and dislikes and interests and all the rest.

    Listen to the Person

    Now this other person is talking to you and it would be great if you can listen instead of being absent minded. You will miss out on a lot if you do not listen to the other person actively. At the end of it he or she may feel stupid having talked so much whereas all you cared about was giving a blank stare. If that happens then you may seem to be egoistic and deceitful.

    Contradict Statements

    The art of conversation is how you can get it going and not how you stop it. Therefore, do not agree on what the other person is saying and make truce, instead say something different and let the conversation flowing. This however does not mean that you are going to argue with her or get into a nasty quarrel, this simply means that you have to get the conversation going any which way!

    Be Confident

    If you are a guy and you think that this lady will get hurt if you show your dislike for her pseudo feminism then know that she won’t. If she is a woman who is rational and respects individuals as much as she likes to get respected then she won’t. Being confident and showcasing your point of view is genuinely attractive and never think twice before doing so, you are on a hunt so act like the hunter!

    Let it Be

    Do not be a blood thirsty vampire out to take on your crush, go easy and let it be. Now this crush person of yours can have many other crushers, and therefore you should not feel low or attempt to grab on her to her and never let go. If you notice that someone else is taking up your time then you should just add a hint of disappointment and move away. You need to let this other person wonder about what you are thinking.

    Get the Phone Number

    Now this is very tricky, and you need to play it well. You have to come off as a nice person with good intentions or else phone number isn’t happening. Now because this meeting and talking was impromptu, we are guessing that the two of you have to get back to your own business, you have to ask for phone number. Do not do the facebook thing, it just shows that you are insincere; getting the number is still a big deal. You can say that lets exchange phone numbers and we can finish this conversation somewhere!
