- Tap into his guy mind-set: When it comes to meeting men, it helps to have something specific to talk about. The next time you see a hot dude on the weekend, look for a clue to his personality before starting a conversation. for example, if he's wearing a "I love cricket" cap, approach him with "I noticed your hat, are you into racing?" It's an opener that seems natural, not caontrived [sic]. Plus, he'll feel comfortable around you because you're talking about something he really gets.
Superb advice, no? So you see, ever since I read this, I've been wearing my red "RedHat" hat (how do you like that?) and strutting around. I figure all the women in the city have read this little item in the Bombay Times, because I've now lost count of the number of lovely ladies who have approached me asking "I noticed your hat, are you into racing?"
Of course, they then dart away convulsed in laughter. But for that fraction of a second, I feel comfortable around them because they are talking about something I really get.
Or not. Forget it.
