You never know where and when you are going to catch someone’s eye. It could be a public place or transport when you get attracted to someone. Remember that person you saw on the public transport that you thought was attractive but didn’t have the nerve to talk. You can follow these steps.
1Public transport is a tough environment. Chat someone up successfully on public transport you need to be quick thinking and decisive without being aggressive. It’s a difficult thing to pull off, but just remember- it might be your soul mate that is escaping never to be seen again.
Check them out! Are they with someone? Then forget him if not then you must act quickly as they may be getting off at the next stop.
If you’re waiting on a tube platform, let them get on first. You can check out where they decide to sit. If they sit down, then sitting opposite is a good move because there will be more chance of making eye contact. If the train is busy then you’re likely to be standing. So get close, but not too close.
It’s useful to have a newspaper, book or magazine in your hands, as it gives you something to pretend to look at, instead of awkwardly glancing around or staring off into space.
Eye contact is the best way to tell if someone finds you physically attractive. Begin by catching their eye and holding it for a second or two. Then look away. Thirty seconds or so later, look up again; if he or she looks back again, this is a sign that they are interested.
When you catch their eye for the second time, you might feel that a smile is appropriate; it’ll make you seem friendly and approachable.
After you’ve caught their eye and they have smiled, check out their body language. If they’ve angled themselves towards you this is a good sign. Make sure your own body language is positive.
So now the next step is to start a conversation. Most people don’t have the nerve for this, but you must seize the day! You’re on a timescale – they might have to get off at the next stop, so it’s best to act quickly. You’ll be able to tell if they are not interested. If it is going badly, and you feel embarrassed, just get off at the next stop.
At the end you have to perform the last step before to get off on your stop. Write your name and phone number on a piece of paper, wait until they move to get off or your stop comes up- hand them the paper, make eye contact, smile and exit. It’s quite simple. If they don’t call then forget about it, you won’t see them again.
