Must-Read: Don’t Do These Creepy Things
We’ve all been there. We see a girl across the bar, or at a party, or wherever it is we’re trying to meet girls, and we try our best piece of material. We know this is exactly what she wants to hear, and we know it’s going to work, but instead the entire conversation turns around and becomes icy cold. And that’s because what you probably thought she was going to take as sexy, she actually took as creepy.
And so today we’re heading on over to Men’s Health where they have a list of things that you do that you may think are sexy, but really it’s super creepy. For example, among the pieces of advice they’re giving:
Creepy: Complimenting her butt
Or her breasts, or any other part of her body that’s normally covered up by a swimsuit. “Some guys think it’s okay to stare at a woman’s cleavage and then tell her, while licking their lips, how hot she is,” says relationship expert April Masini. “This is not flirting. It’s lecherously creepy. While women do want to be seen as sexy, sexual beings, you need to wait until you’re in a relationship before you assume this type of conversation.”
Sexy spin: Complimenting one of her non-physical attributes. Telling her she has a great smile or gorgeous eyes probably won’t get you slapped, but it also won’t win you points for originality. The compliments that will turn her head are the ones that seem unique to her. Mention that you admire her confidence, how successful she is, or how well she handles difficult situations (Obviously, you’ll need context for a few of these.) You’ll look like you’re really paying attention to who she is—even if you’re not.
So, you know. Make that a note and stick that note in your list of notes and make sure to not make that kind of move out there with the ladies. And for more advice, head on over to the above link to check out the rest.
