How do I approach a guy?

How do I approach a guy?

For the last year I’ve been working really hard and getting in better shape. I was never really overweight, it was more just about being a better me. I wouldn’t say I’ve changed my whole life but now instead of taking the elevator at work, I take the stairs. Instead of eating junk food out of the snack machine, I bring my own snacks of kale chips or carrots to work. A few months ago I decided to take the plunge and join a gym. I don’t know why I never did it before, I think just the thought of it intimidated the heck out of me.

On the first day this guy caught my eye. I obviously didn’t say anything to him but now I’m worried that so much time has passed, I’ve missed my window of opportunity. I really want to get to know this guy. He’s really hot and we obviously have at least one thing in common. Should I approach him or do you think to much time has passed? He’s never said anything to me, so maybe he just isn’t interested. But he does always smile at me every time he sees me so I just don’t know. Help!

Men today don’t want to be known as that kind of creepy guy who hits on girls at the gym so they are taught that no matter what, don’t do it. So if you want to have any sort of chance at all with this guy you are going to have to be the one to approach him.

I know it isn’t easy. Just the thought of approaching any guy is terrifying to me, so trust me, I so get it. But if you really want to get to know him, you are going to have to take that first step. As far as the timeline goes, there is nothing that says you only have a certain amount of time to chat with someone — so seriously don’t worry about that.


Good luck and let us know how it goes!
