#4 Don’t come on too strong. Now this works best just after you’ve spoken to her after asking her a really vague question. Once she answers it, both of you are in talking mode but not really friends. She would have answered your question and looked away. She obviously knows you’re hitting on her, so she won’t really try to continue the conversation. She may just smile and look away.
You can do one of two things, introduce yourself or continue to play the game and introduce yourself after asking her a few more questions. Prolonging the game can make it so much more exciting for both of you. But of course, she could just walk out of the conversation if she’s in a bar counter waiting for a drink. If you’re introducing yourself, go ahead and introduce yourself. And be frank, tell her you have a confession to make, that you’ve been waiting to meet her for a long time or all evening.
She obviously knows you’ve been staring at her, so why pretend like you’re picking her up. Telling her the truth may flatter her instead of making her feel like she’s being picked up.
