    Do you prefer to be approached with something funny or some kind of compliment or some kind of gym related question like how much do you squat?

    Any of the three as long as it is funny and not stupid, or is a real compliment and not stupid or is a serious gym related question and is not stupid

    I am uncomfortable around people so i would avoid any situation that involves socialising.

    What goal are you trying to achieve?

    If you just want to make friends (and you're at the gym), asking for advice or help can be an icebreaker. An offhand comment on something going on around you could work too.

    If you are trying to hit on the guy, the compliment approach would probably work better.

    Springing from the shadows has worked in the past but that kind of romance is hard to find

    "How much do you squat?" would strike me as a bit strange in the grocery store.

    I would just like to be approached, period. I would welcome more connections in the gym. I think funny comments are the best, as are compliments.

    A guy actually spoke to me at the gym last week, he said I was the best dressed man there. I guess because I was wearing an orange muscle shirt, grey shorts with an orange check worked in, and blue Pumas with orange shoelaces. I don't think he was hitting on me, but it really did kind of make my day icon_smile.gif

    Humor all the way for many reasons, it's a good casual way to strike up a conversation etc....

    +1 yeah!

    Well I prefer to be approached of something same of a topic say of an item, I notice I get to make conversation with girls "which is always" someone's girlfriend, and their boyfriend will come into the scene like their all well endowed and drag them away. *these bunch of straights, icon_rolleyes.gif

    with guys usually the one with that neutral omen like, where else for me, I get approached always by all kinds of funny people because almost everyone says which I was told, I have this approachable face! icon_rolleyes.gif not a good thing.

    but not when I'm on the Buzz cut, no one approaches me.icon_twisted.gif

    Based on your question, I'm assuming that you're talking about approaching guys at the gym, unless you're some kind of alien doing research on us.

    I've always found offering a spot is a good way to meet guys at the gym. If you see a guy struggling with weight, then ask him if he needs a spot. This has always worked for me.

    You can also stop and talk to them around the water fountain. I once had this hot guy stop me at the water fountain and compliment me saying, "man, you've gotten in great shape since you've started. What have you been doing?" I said thanks, and of course, I blushed, turned around and skipped away like a little school girl. icon_redface.gif
