MISSED CONNECTION: To the nice guy who came up to me this morning and said I was really cute and that he wanted to meet me. That was very nice of you to do and I really respect the courage that took. I hope the next time you approach a girl she doesn't have a boyfriend!

    2. Ugh, sounds like a PUA... annoying.

    3. Question: why is he a pick up artist if he is asking out a lot of girls? If OP said no, it isn't unfathomable that other girls would say no too. Let's say 50% said no. He is supposed to do what, NOT try to ask out other girls he finds attractive and sit and be sad he got rejected by one? I don't understand the mentality that goes with the branding.

      Let's say I find a girl attractive. I tell her that and ask her out. She says no for reason x. I take that in stride. While walking towards class I see another girl who I also find attractive. I ask her out too, because the first one was a definite no, that chapter is closed, and I have nothing to lose. I'm not being insincere in my compliments or cheapening them by being liberal with them. I genuinely do find both girls attractive. Extrapolate that to fifty girls. What's wrong with that?

      Yes, there are sleazy guys who try to pick up girls to sleep with them, but they give off a very different vibe than a confident guy who is just casually dating.

    4. @1d: Maybe you think you're special and not being "
      insincere" or "cheapning your compliments". But it sounds like this guy just repeats his signature line to any cute girl he sees.

    1. 1 here. It started with a "J". and wow I haven't looked at this in a bit and so many comments. I wish I hadn't given him my number, he ended up being very forward :(

      (and if this is the same guy, seems to do it a lot)

  4. Gross, PUAs. No thank you. Why do people think it's appropriate to randomly approach people and ask them out? It's creepy, puts you on the spot, attempts to take advantage of your surprise... just generally disrespectful. Glad OP took it as a compliment and wasn't fazed.

    1. How are you supposed to ask someone out?

      There's a difference between the PUA creeps and a confident dude just taking the chance at asking someone out. From OP's description I don't see any indication that it's a PUA shithead. Those guys try to use weird pop psych tricks to fool and annoy you.

      P.S. Fuck you.

    2. Ya I'm with 4a on this one. It sounds like he took rejection gracefully, not like he was irritating or creepy. How do you expect to meet anyone new if you find it inappropriate for people to approach others?

    3. 4b: while I have no problem with meeting people and maybe considering doing stuff with them/making friends, asking someone out who you've never seen before just because you run into them on the street is just disconcerting. I would *never* say yes to anyone who did that; like, wtf, you don't even know me.

    4. @4c: You wouldn't, but you also don't speak on behalf of all the women in the world. I don't think going on a date with a stranger is quite that objectionable.

      Delete
    5. 4c: right. So all potential relationships are best started out in the friendzone? Thank you for wasting everyone's time and forcing guys to work with ulterior motives if they want a date.

  5. I saw this MC a few days ago and he just approached me today (tall fit asian male). I had to report back to this thread lol. He seemed nice (and well rehearsed) but when I politely said no to giving him my number, he walked away without even a "oh ok, bye then". Onto the next one...
