Approaching Women: 10 Techniques for Introverts

These 10 tips for approaching women are a great launching pad for developing your approach skills!

Before we share the list, remember these are skills. And any skill takes time as you build confidence in what you’re doing, practice, reflect, modify, and keep improving!

Without further ado, these are 10 of the most effective techniques for introverts wondering about approaching a woman for the first time:


(1) Cultivate a warm, human-to-human interaction.

When you bring your full humanity into the way you relate, you make it more comfortable for others to be themselves. This creates an authentic, natural connection!

(2) Notice who you feel naturally drawn to as you walk into a room.

Their energy attracts you for a reason, whether their behavior makes you smile or earns your respect. Follow that magnetic pull!

(3) Make your way toward women you’re interested in (boldly, not aggressively!).

If you never try, you’ll never know!

(4) Get in her line of sight and make flirtatious eye contact, if possible.

This can be as simple as a brief glance with a sincere smile before looking away.

(5) Say something to her to start the conversation!

Instead of putting too much pressure on yourself, cultivate a mindset of curiosity. You can even think of it like gathering data to reflect on later!

(6) See how she reacts to gentle, playful touch.

If she reciprocates, great! If she retracts, don’t worry. Different people prefer different paces when it comes to touch.

(7) Maintain a strong sense of confidence no matter what happens.

(8) Have a selective mindset and keep your standards high (quality over quantity!).

Perhaps there are a few traits you like, a few characteristics you can’t tolerate, and some non-negotiable shared values you’re looking for. Make a list, prioritize, and don’t settle on the big ones!

(9) Point out something you notice or admire about her.

Everybody loves a genuine compliment! It’s an easy way to diffuse tension and create an amiable connection.

(10) Recognize and process any social anxiety that comes up as you hold tightly to your identity.

Come prepared with a coping technique or two, and remember – it’s totally normal to feel a bit nervous when approaching a woman for the first time.


Like we mentioned above, this is only meant to be a launching pad. As you test out a variety of techniques, pay attention to what feels like it’s working and what doesn’t!

You may even find that after you spend some time reflecting and learning, you come up with a handful of other techniques you want to try.

The great news is that with every action you take followed by a purposeful period of reflection, you’ll grow in new insights and ideas.
