    How do you go about starting that first conversation with someone you want to meet? What is something that makes you turn away from someone who is trying to talk to you for the first time? Have you ever seen a guy who you think is so hot you can't begin to fathom what to say to him?

    Generally, I try to break the ice by opening with humor. In the forums it usually involves a humorous message or I leave a (attempted) witty remark on their pics. Most of the time people seem to respond positively to them, then there's the time that it is a complete miss makeing me seem like a special needs student or a stalker.

    It is hard to make me not want to talk to a person, but sometimes I just get a feeling of blah twards them. Can't explain really, just a feeling.

    Yes I HAVE found many guys (specially on here) that are so attractive to me that I don't know what to say. This, my friends would say, is a rarity since I am usually a chatty person lol.

    Ok, now lets here from the rest of ya.

    I go with the old 'slap them, call them a name and steal their lunchbox' routine.

    Why mess with a classic?

    Only better if you also push them into the mud. Adds that little bit of "I love you."

    Well I have no issues "breaking the ice" with someone I don't know, either in person or via a site like this one.

    For me, I always ask questions and express my interest in them. I try to ask meaningful questions and express
    thoughtful comments. Most guys on this site respond and are polite. Occasionally I have some I say hello to (who have checked out my profile several times) and don't reply. I assume they really aren't into talking to someone who might be half a continent away.
    The same holds in person, straight or gay. There is a (presumably straight) guy in my office building from western Kansas. I was curious about him, and ask his name and said "and how is life in Ness county" (In Kansas you can read what county the person is from by their licenseplate)... I got quite a response.

    When someone messages me, I'm always pleased when someone asks me an intelligent question or makes an observation based on some effort. For instance I had a guy yesterday ask me about my beagles and called them by name. He'd have to read my captions in my gallery pics to know that. Very nice.

    Guys always say to me "You work out?"

    I shit you not.

    I usually say, "Yeah, sometimes. I'm trying to watch my figure."

    Or, I hear, "How do I gain weight""

    My response: "Eat."

    "How do you go about starting that first conversation with someone you want to meet?"

    Walk up to him from behind and pull his pants down, then say "oh, sorry, I thought you were someone else". You can be sure there will be a verbal exchange between the two of you.

    Mater(CARS): You know, I once knew this girl Doreen. Good-looking girl. Looked just like a Jaguar, only she was a truck! You know, I used to crash into her just so I could spoke to her.

    Or.. can go just like:
    msTremell: You know what i like about you [doctor]?.. You enjoy being in control. ..Like me..

    well, I always find some good neutral point first. Bad point - and anygood boy may fire you immediately though maybe he'll deeply regret afterwards but you would never pull yourself to start it again icon_smile.gif
