The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Sit beside her, bring up school stuff. Go from there.

    You will fail to pick up 100% of the girls you don't talk too.

    Hiya Homeboy7600 Different things work for different people. What works for me is to talk naturally with a poker face, then lay on a bit of arrogance/sarcasm. If you can pull it off right, girls love it

    Good luck!

    In a repeatable social situation (class, work, etc.) :
    I say something funny, then ignore them for a while. Rinse, repeat, until she is making it difficult for you to ignore her.

    As Randy said, different things work for different people. Funny always works for me.

    I think the poker face works because girls don't like to see guys whose bodies are saying 'Wow, she's actually talking to me!' first time round Show her you're interested but don't go over the top.

    If you think that being shy is bad, don't! In my experience a lot of guys are, until they reach a certain point where something goes 'click', and the fear of meeting/talking to girls just vanishes.

    Dude make her want you. Say a joke every now, grab her attention. Then after awhile ask if she wants to "study"

    Lean over and lick her ear. If she likes it, you're in. If you get your teeth punched in, she didn't like it and you will have to konk her over the head with a hammer in order to get anywhere with her

    It's as hard as you make it. I suggest, finding something she likes. You can usually find this out by listening to her talk to other people. If the two of you have something in common then discuss that with her. Eventually you can add on to that and go out to eat etc.

    As everyone else has said: Being funny is the way to go. If you can make a girl laugh you can most likely go further with them.

    I agree with that. If I go to a bar or a club or just about anywhere and I want to talk to girls, I just go up to them and say something funny. If you can make them laugh then your in. But one way or another you need to go and talk to her about anything. If you dont then she will just one more girl you missed out on.

    I think girls like a guy that can make them laugh because if a girl's going to spend the rest of her existence with a bloke,then humour is one of the cheapest commodities available, and makes life more interesting Just my take on things anyway. Going out now, good luck with the girl

    When i talk to girls, if I can't make them laugh I go the next one. Laughing is important.

    Or just grab her boob, if she likes you she'll knock your teeth, if she doesn't she prob do the same. So you'll have to guess after you wake up.

    Tell her that she reminds you of your wife. Then tell her it's no problem, because she dead, and you did not kill her.

    I usually just sit there staring longingly at her until she finally looks over. Then I look away really quickly.

    I do this every day for a few weeks until I start to get really depressed, then I finally convince myself I'm too good for her anyway.



    Or you could do what the guys above said.


    OR, you could remember that girls are human, (well, until you marry them), and just go find some random excuse to talk to her and make conversation. Y'know, the way MOST people make friends.

    First establish that you're an alpha male.

    I suggest you do this by peeing all over your class room to mark your territory and start screaming and flinging poo at all of the Omega Males. Once the Omega Males have been cowed pick a Beta Male to be your second in command. Then, smell this girls ass until she shows interest and then mount her.

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.
