Here is an interesting conversation piece I managed to use in a recent date: in a bar or similar environment, when you spot a guy that tickles your fancy, do you make the first move (meaning, you approach the guy and introduce yourself) or do you wait to be approached (maybe signal a smile but stay put and wait)? My date and I had such an interesting conversation around it that I thought maybe we can use it as another point of colorful discussion among us here in MGG. Do you make the first move? Or do you wait to be approached? How has been your experience?
In Ramone Johnson’s blog, he says:
Making the first move is a bold step; yet one that gets easier after each approach. A vast majority of guys like to be the ones hit on first: It shows confidence on the part of the one making the first move and it eases the tensions of possible rejection. The probability of rejection is far less when a guy is the one approached, as opposed to the other way around. And the probability of finding a man increases when you take the initiative instead of sitting back and waiting for them to approach you first. [Source]
