    In reference to the two other inspirational threads:
    "Are you shy" and "Watch the video I just made!"
    Someone took a video of me dancing and posted it on youtube. I only found out about it almost 7 months after it was uploaded! icon_lol.gif

    Anyway, these are my practical tips to get people make the first move on you:
    JUST BE YOURSELFicon_smile.gif
    DO WHAT YOU DO BESTicon_cool.gif
    LOOK APPROACHABLEicon_razz.gif
    ...and people will come to you. icon_wink.gif

    So, be inspired and start smilin':

    I never bought into the whole approachable thing too much, because it doesn't necessarily work. No matter how approachable (or not approachable), friendly (or not friendly ), smiling (or not smiling ) I am I will still tend to not get approached... ANYWHERE! icon_rolleyes.gif

    I always hear the "intimidation" word, but then have my friends fall on the floor laughing when they hear it. I don't get it. And have stopped trying to be what people say I should be in order to get approached more.

    I just gotta be me... (play music)

    and honestly, I think that's pretty approachable.
    (and yes, in spite of what others might think I'm a pretty shy guy and have a hard time approaching others)

    IDK, me being shy IS me being myself. And I have gotten a lot of attention because of it. I guess it works for me, huh?

    That video was AWESOME!

    Ok, so I'm not shy at all! However ask me the last time I was approached? I ALWAYS seem to be doing the approaching! And yeah it's cool and all, however it would be nice to have someone approach me. I've been told that I am intimidating, however when you see someone out laughing, joking and having a good time with the people he's with how and why is that intimidating??
    My thoughts on those who are shy; seriously, what have you got to loose?!?!?

    well the thing is, like me, i wouldnt want to approach someone that is THAT outgoing just because i would feel like i would rain on their party or something. im more a quiet guy so i'd feel like i wasnt the kind of guy you would want to hang out with. idk

    Okay, so after my earlier post I was at the gym last night and guess what? I was approached by a pretty cool guy... who smiled at me a couple of times, and then came up to introduce himself in the locker room. icon_eek.gif

    So much for my theory of being unapproachable! icon_lol.gif
