Approaching at the gym
Hey to any experience PUAs out there, what is a good way to approach a good looking girl at the gym, or a good opener without being creepy, and because alot of the times they always have earphones on how to get there attention and start a convo
and how would you number close, because maybe sometimes they dont got a cell on them lol
If it's a smaller gym and you see people there regularly then start making small talk with everybody, you don't want to be the one only talking to the girls, you have to game the whole room, guys and girls.
With guys it should be easier, just ask them advice on your workout. Make friends with the social guys who you don't think are creeps. I can't tell you how many times I made friends with guys that turned out to be total jerks around girls. You should try to avoid this, but I have no good solution for this problem because they seem cool when they are not around women, but totally innapropiate when they are ... you don't want those kind of friends.
Now for the girls, be kind of indirect, look over your shoulder and stuff, use the 3 second rule, don't look at them for 1 hour before talking to them. Go with an opinion opener, something relating to the gym ... Like say "Hey I need a female perspective on something. W was talking to my friend (INSERT GIRL NAME HERE) and she was saying that looks are as important to girls as they are to boys, but I think women are more complicated in this perspective. I think personality and blabla matter more. (or whatever your opinion is on the matter). I can only stay for a minute I have to get back to my workout, I have to show this guy how this machine works or whatever ... "
Go with something like that. And try to get some attractive girls that know you for social proof first. I think that would work like a charm.
Oh and one other thing, go in when you feel that you are not disturbing them, if you interrupt their workout than that's kind of creepy, use common sense.
Hope this helps. Keep us posted.
yea good point, yea indirect makes alot of sense lol, thanks
Haha yeah, indirect probably would be good in this kind of gym scenario, BUT I do think that the old- "...I can only stay for a minute, I have to get back to my rowing machine..." - might be a bit over the top & a little too cliche/scripted for the gym.

yeah, you know what, you`re probably right. Haha just anytime I hear such a canned MM line, it makes me feel like the girl has probably heard it somewhere along the line, but yeah, they`re canned for a reason - they do convey all of the right things. Respect
Btw there is a sticky post just about not meeting people at bars or clubs, small section for the gym :
Where to sarge if you don't like clubs or bars.
A good thing can be to ask her to spot you in the benchpress or something and then after that just start talking about training. Don't grunt, roar or anything because you think she'll be impressed, she don't. Perhaps ask if she's training tomorrow (if she is you are to) and ask if you should train together.
