    • a smile (coupled with appropriate eye contact) from a member of the opposite sex (or member of the same sex, if you're into that) works well as a sign to tell the other party that you're remotely interested, at least in the physical level for the current moment ....

      i think this works wonders in giving the other party an invitation to come over for a chat. unfortunately, asians in general, are shy and avoid eye contact.

      read from an article recently about a caucasian woman who married a singaporean guy. the summary of her point was that, it's only that local guys aren't smooth talkers, it's just that most of the time, the poor guy is sized-up in a negative way, even before he has a chance to open his mouth, and she also mentions that she's had her fair share of smooth talkers who don't keep their end of the deal ...

      but, then again, guys happen to be quite shallow and then mistaken that special smile from the gal to be a message that she's "easy" ......... well, boys will be boys, and guys will be guys

    • It cost nothing, but creates much.

      It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give.

      It happens in a flash and the memory of it lasts forever.
      None are so rich they can get along without it and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.

      It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business, and is the countersign of friends.

      It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and nature's best antidote for trouble.

      Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away!

      If someone is to tired to give you a smile, leave one of yours.

      For, nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none to give.

      Asian version there is this eye contact thing.
      I agree there's need for modification over the attempt we use eye contact.
      Usually cannot be remote range, gotto be close range.

      But, got to be very confident. I had my experience before. Will post later. Going outing liaoz. Mr. Green

    • Nah... it's because if I'm too close to him he may see the drool from my lips.

      Approach a male stranger? I think it depends if he looks approachable and friendly... and potentially reciprocative.

      [b]Title: Would girls approach a good-looking man?


      I came to realise recently that girls tend to shy away from talking or even look at a good-looking guy generally. Is it because of the girl's inferior complexity, the fear of getting hurt by this nice-looking man or just wanting attention from the other party. What do you think?

      actually, this is exactly the same thought that goes through a guy's mind when he tries to approach a gal

      something like a million butterflies in the stomach, unless of coz he's a playboy and done it so many times he himself can't remember
