How can you get a date within a week? Women will tell you never to approach men and they are right in principle but low on imagination.
What you are going to do for the next week is take every opportunity to talk to the opposite s*.
Every time you are interested in someone you see you are going to say this; “Hi, you don’t know where there’s a coffee shop around here that isn’t Starbucks?”
Before he answers say “You don’t work for Starbucks do you?”
When he says no (which I’m guessing will happen most of the time) say “You just gave me a face that made me think you were offended.”
The truth is most men don’t have the confidence or skill to turn the opportunity in to a request for your phone number.
But – The longer you keep conversation flowing the greater the chance he will feel comfortable enough to ask for a date.
Try and make the exchange increasingly more personal. Ask him if this is the area he lives in, comment on his accent, see if this leads to where he comes from.
When you feel you have a good rapport with him say that you don’t really know any good places around the area, and comment that you really need a tour guide.
To be frank, if he isn’t able to take this opportunity then he is not of high enough value for you, you need a man who is sociable.
The thing about dating advice given from men is we know what is attractive and what isn’t.
It is difficult for women to lead interactions; women don’t like it and neither do men. But you can work around this by structuring the interaction to present clear opportunities for the man to pick up on.
He will still think he pulled you because in truth, he did.
