Well I really do think most of the guys are afraid of approaching beautiful women but not all beautiful women are cocky and shallow.
I think Bilbo already mentioned before and I completely agree with it; if you are decent looking and approach a beautiful girl with a original way you might be lucky because she can be surprised that you have the balls to approach her while lots of guy don't.
Not saying that you just said this but I am not buying the argument that having sex with a hooker is more filty than having sex with a random girl in the club who has sex with lots of people because in general I think hookers have to be really clean and SATD free all the time.
I do however thing it's exciting to go for the hunt and to play the flirt game when you go out, rather than paying money to have meaningless sex with a girl who knows her ways.
not that this is relevant to the thread but from a personal perspective, i'm not too good at flirting. however, at the risk of getting bilbo-like, i must say i've come to realize that a good strategy for me is to:
(1) always maintain eye-contact, looking at the girl deep in her eyes almost all of the time increases chances, imo. once a girl told me that i should stop flirting at her with my stare when all i was doing was simply looking at her eyes deeply.
(2) let the girls do the talking. girls love to talk about themselves so it's good to keep them entertained about their own sutff. plus, this is esp. good for me as i'm not much of a talker.
it's actually quite amazing how these 2 basic things seem to work quite a bit. i'd recommend it to everyone with a relatively reserved personality. it doesn't take much skills at all.
How this thread is turning out from men/women chances in life to having sex with hookers is a complete mystery to me.
wait some time and it will become a fed-v-nadal thread
