I'm 24 and always had moderate social anxiety. As a result I've never been great with women, mainly approaching them which I pretty much never do. Luckily online dating has worked for me so I have been out with quite a few women. I've worked on my social anxiety the past few years and it's gotten a lot better and I'm really itching to get out there and start approaching women in person. I just don't really know where to start, so I'd love some opinions/advice. I guess my main problem is that I have no idea what to say. Exactly how blunt can you be? I mean if you see a woman you find attractive can you just go up to her and say something like this: "Hey you caught my eye and I'd like to take you out for a drink sometime." Are women creeped out by that kind of bluntness, do I need to try and make casual conversation first? Anyway I'd love to hear some opinions on how to go about approaching women and what to say. Both in a bar/club setting and in casual settings like grocery stores.
