10 Ways To Approach Women in the Real World
So, we’re finally allowed out in the real world again. Swiping left and right isn’t the only way to date anymore and we can satisfy our craving for human interaction. But wait. How do we even be decent human beings without five minutes to write the perfect response? We’ve forgotten what it’s like to have a conversation in real-time with someone of the same sex, let alone a woman you’re crushing over hard.
Approaching women doesn’t have to be complicated. Believe it or not, women pride themselves on being approachable. They’re incredibly social creatures (and have a thing for the latest gossip).
They don’t want you to sweat buckets at just the idea of wanting to speak to them, but we know some of you will anyway. So in case that didn’t convince you, we’ve put together 10 ways to approach women in the real world to put you at ease.
1. Read the room
Like anything else, timing is key when approaching women. You should observe what she’s doing (in a non-creepy way) to see whether she’d be open to holding a conversation. If she’s on a heated phone call or in a rush, speaking to you will be the last thing on her mind.
If you’ve caught her off guard she won’t have time to process you’re the type of guy she’d normally notice first, or even hang around a little longer in hope that you might get a chance to speak. You’ll be the annoying guy that rudely interrupted a work crisis or made her miss the train for dinner with an out-of-town friend that she now has to wait an hour for.
Even if you’ve got time to try and make up for it, you’d have started off on the wrong foot, and coming back from it will be hard. Save yourself the ball ache and approach women who seem relaxed. They’re way more likely to engage in a conversation with you and exchange contact information which is ultimately the goal.
2. Respect girls’ night out
You’re on a boys’ night out and spot a beautiful woman on a girls’ night out across the bar. It seems like the perfect encounter. You’ve got the lads to psych you up, she’s let her hair down and everyone’s a little tipsy so you won’t remember if it doesn’t go down well (hopefully). And if it does, you can join forces.
But not every woman likes to be disturbed when they’re out with the girls. If you’re brave enough to approach an entire girl group, make it short and sweet. Make it clear you’re aware she’s with the girls but you just had to introduce yourself and would love to get to know her one-on-one at a better time.
This prompts a number exchange and a first date. Once you’ve got her number, wish her a good night and text her in the morning to arrange details.
If you respect her time with the girls from the get-go, she’ll respect yours with the boys. Anyone in a healthy relationship knows how important it is to have friendships outside of your relationship. You don’t want her blowing up your phone in 6 months’ time because you’re out late and spend “too much time with the guys.” Start as you mean to go on.
3. Keep it cool
She might be the hottest woman you’ve ever seen in your life and you can envision the next 20 years with her, but don’t tell her that. Almost every woman wants to hear this at some point, but not in the first 10 seconds. Even if you just wear your heart on your sleeve and fall hard, it’ll come off as intense and overwhelming. Not to mention a little bit weird.
Reel it in. We fall in love with strangers we see every day – she won’t be your first and she probably won’t be your last. Not unless you keep your cool that is. With so much riding on your first encounter, you’re bound to come out with something you’ll instantly regret.
Take a deep breath, live in the moment, and be yourself. If she doesn’t like it, there’s always tomorrow when someone else catches your eye.
4. No means no
If a woman says she’s not interested, please respect her answer. It takes a lot of courage for a woman to be honest as many women engage in conversation to be polite or out of fear of what will happen if they say no. It’s a scary world out there for women.
By respecting her could make all the difference and make her less fearful of men – a small act of kindness could go a long way. Politely say “it was worth a shot. Take care”. You’ll both come away feeling positive after a nice conversation which is a pretty good alternative if you ask us.
If she says she has a boyfriend, walk away. While you don’t owe him anything, saying “what he doesn’t know won’t hurt him” (true story) is equally disrespectful to her. She’s committed to the relationship and you should admire her loyalty. If she’s willing to throw away years for a few seconds with a total stranger, who’s to say she won’t do the same to you in the future?
It’ll also show you have respect for yourself. Don’t give her your number anyway just in case she changes her mind (another true story). She won’t change her mind (and neither did I). No one likes a beggar.
5. Stay away from physical compliments
We can’t tell you how many times women get complimented on their appearance and after the 100th time, it gets boring. Come up with something original already. It’s also not as flattering as you think.
It comes across as the only reason you’re interested. While women appreciate physical attraction is a must, they also want to know you’re interested in the person behind the pretty face. Not just as another bedroom conquest. If the first thing you say to her is about the way she looks, chances are she’s going to think you’ve not thought of anything beyond that. Even if you have.
Instead, ask her a genuine question that you want to know the answer to. A little heads up – women know if it’s nothing more than a conversation starter to try and divert the attention away from wanting to rip their clothes off. Asking a question is a great way to get more of a response than just a smile and gives an insight into her personality.
But don’t just ask any old random question. Take inspiration from what’s around you at the time to make it seem more natural. If she’s reading a book, ask her what it’s about and whether she’s enjoying it. Or if you’re at a bar, ask her what her favorite drink is. You get the gist.

6. Attempt eye contact first
Approaching a woman will be easier if you already know she’s interested and you can find this out with eye contact. We’re not talking full-on eye-fucking here. But a subtle gaze in her direction until her eyes meet yours. When they do, hold your eye contact and give her a smile (or your best smolder, if you’ve mastered one. If you haven’t, now is probably not the time to try with a woman you fancy at stake). This will not only show her you’re confident but it’ll also give you the confidence to make a move.
If she holds eye contact and smiles back at you, you’re in with a shot. It’s important she does both as if she’s friendly, she’ll smile back or initiate a smile with a stranger without so much as a second thought as to whether she finds them attractive or not. It’s a natural instinct for her character. But if her eye contact lingers, it’s pretty much an open invitation to go over and introduce yourself.
7. Don’t immediately ask for her number
When getting her contact number is the reason behind approaching her, it only makes sense to cut to the chase right? Wrong. Not all women want to give their number to a complete stranger. And even if they do, they know nothing about you except that you have a phone. They don’t know enough about you to feel invested in texting you back so you’re more likely to be ghosted.
Starting a conversation will let her know more about you and why she should definitely text you back. It’ll also make her feel more comfortable around you when you meet again.
8. Make regular contact with female strangers
This isn’t us encouraging you to chat up every single woman you walk past. While your odds might seem like they’re in your favor, the chances of meeting someone you have a deep meaningful connection with are pretty slim – remember, it’s quality over quantity gentlemen.
Familiarising yourself with talking to female strangers will allow you to be more confident and comfortable when the opportunity arises to approach a woman you find super attractive. It won’t seem so scary and won’t leave you fumbling over your words.
You’ll also become more mindful of social cues which will help you to figure out what goes down well and what doesn’t. Don’t beat yourself up if it doesn’t go to plan the first time you try. Keep trying until you find an approach that works for you.
What works for your colleague that’s fully booked with first dates from now until the end of the month won’t necessarily work for you. With so much practice he now oozes charm and so can you. Practice makes perfect after all.
9. Always be yourself
It’s tempting to go OTT to impress someone who has made such an impression on you that you’re willing to approach them on the fly. You want to put your best self forward. We get it, and that’s exactly what you should do. Time is of the essence and you want her to know how great you are, but make sure it’s the best version of yourself and not how you want her to see you.
Most public encounters with women don’t last very long. We all have lives and somewhere to be sooner or later. Holding up a facade for a matter of minutes is easy. Getting through an entire first date without dropping the ball? A little trickier. 2 months of dating? Almost impossible.
Eventually, your guard will drop and she’ll know who you really are. You deserve someone that likes you for you and you’ll never find her if you’re always pretending to be someone else.
10. Get comfortable with rejection
There’s going to be times where you’ve done absolutely right and she still turns you down. You’re not going to be for everyone and that’s fine. But you mustn’t take it personally because it never will be. She’s a woman you’ve known for less than a minute, she doesn’t know anything personal about you.
You won’t always know the reason she wasn’t interested and you don’t have to. All you need to know is if she wasn’t for you, someone else out there is and in order to find her, you’ve got to keep your head in the game.
Once you become comfortable with rejection no one can touch you and you’ll never lose. What’s meant for you will always be for you, and what’s not will never be no matter what you do. The sooner you accept this, the better.

Grilling Tools FAQs
At a very basic level, you definitely need a spatula, fork, and tongs. After that, it depends on what you’re cooking and how you want it to be cooked. For safety, an apron and gloves are essential whereas other tools such as cedar planks are a great luxury extra.
Grilling tools need to cope with a high level of heat and need to keep you protected from that heat. They should also be comfortable and allow you to grill with ease. Once they tick those boxes, it’s all about how they make your life easier or improve the taste of your food.

The Difference Between Bourbon and Whiskey
The difference between bourbon and whiskey is as clear as mud when you’re trying to choose between brands and bottles. Bourbon needs to be American-made, aged in oak for four years, and have at least a 51% mash bill, while other American Whiskeys are made using wheat and/or rye or utilize other variations in the distillation process.
Whiskey was a term first employed during the late 1800s to differentiate Irish Whiskey and American liquor from Scotch whisky and Canadian whisky (which everyone called rye). The in-vogue Japanese whisky also went with the Scotch spelling (click here for the full breakdown of whisky versus whiskey).
The following article defines what mash bill is needed to make bourbon, but also identifies the other major American whiskey styles, bottled-in-bond, Tennessee whiskey, and single malt varieties that are beginning to become more prevalent in the US.
What Makes a Liquor Bourbon?
A frequent refrain that can be heard in Kentucky is: “Not every whiskey is a bourbon, but every bourbon is a whiskey.” To be called bourbon:
The liquor needs to be crafted from at least a 51% corn fermented grain mash bill that has been stored in charred oak barrels for four years. The spirit must have been distilled within the United States.
95% of the bourbon whiskey bottled in the U.S. is distilled in the state of Kentucky.
Is All Bourbon From Kentucky?
Kentucky is considered bourbon country, and your home bar is most likely to be stocked with expressions from the Bluegrass state. The majority of bourbon has been distilled in Kentucky since American whiskey production was drawn from the corn-producing farms of the 1700s.
Despite this, other regions – such as Tennessee, Colorado, California, and even New York – are beginning to craft and/or bottle amazing bourbon expressions. Just like with peat and barley malt for Irish Whiskey and single malt and blended Scotch in the British Isles, your liquor of choice comes from the source material.
Finding the best Kentucky bourbon is like finding the best single malt Scotch – it’s entirely subjective and based on a wide variety of factors including flavor, taste, aroma, price, and accessibility.

Wheated bourbons are those made with a large proportion of the mash bills secondary grain being wheat, in addition to the mandated 51% minimum corn. Wheat as the secondary grain provides subtlety and contrast, adding a creaminess and gradual sweetness to the spirit than that derived from the majority corn, malted barley, or rye recipe.
Wheat is also useful during oak barrel aging, with a tendency to age much better than many traditional bourbons (up to around the 20 year mark).
Best choice: Maker’s 46 Wheated Bourbon
Bottled-in-Bond Bourbon and Whiskey
The Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 was a set of legal regulations created by the U.S. Government to standardize and authenticate the quality of American distilled alcoholic beverages, especially bourbon, wheat, and rye whiskey.
Prior to the time the Bottled-in-Bond Act was legislated, the American whiskey market was being decimated by inferior quality, unregulated booze. Bottled-in-bond is a whiskey label that adheres to a set of legal regulations contained in the United States government’s Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits.
The regulatory jargon breaks down as follows:
- The whiskey must be the product of a single distillation season
- The distilled spirit must be made by one distiller at one distillery
- The distilled spirit must be at least four years old
- It must be stored and aged in government bonded warehouses
- The whiskey must also be at least 100 proof (50% ABV)
- Only water may be added to the mash bill
If you purchase a bourbon whiskey or rye labeled bottled-in-bond the regulations from the Act must be met.
Best choice: New Riff Straight Bourbon Whiskey
American Rye Whiskey
For a spirit to call itself American rye whiskey, the grain mash must be made up of at least 51% actual malted rye cereal grain.
Certified rye whiskey’s initial alcohol content can’t be higher than 160 proof, or roughly 80% alcohol before it’s distilled down and eventually bottled.
Aside from the straight rye whiskey, you’ll find some rye mash bills filled out with brown sugar, corn, or malted barley, or have the wooden barrel finish in wine, rum, or brandy casks to add another flavor dimension.
Best choice: WhistlePig Rye 10 Year
American Single Malt Whiskey
Single malt and blended whiskey expressions made from malted barley are becoming more popular craft spirits in the U.S.
With Scotch whisky at its highest popularity level of all time and the emergence of Japanese whisky as a power player in the billion-dollar market for blended malt whisky, there’s an opportunity for local distillers to make quality single malt. While it lacks the cultural cachet of Scotch, American malt whisky is meticulously crafted and caters well to craft distillation.
Best choice: Westward American Single Malt
There’s a simple, yet important distinction between Kentucky bourbon and Tennessee whiskey which makes a huge impact on the taste and what goes on the label. The crucial difference is that Tennessee whiskey is filtered through sugar maple charcoal as part of the Lincoln County Process, a charcoal filtration method in which fresh whiskey passes through charcoal chips and is then put in oak casks for maturation.
For a whiskey to attain the Tennessee label, it must go through the charcoal mellowing stage, in the state of Tennessee.
Best choice: Uncle Nearest 1856 Premium Whiskey
To be called bourbon, your whiskey needs to be distilled in America for a minimum of four years in oak barrels, with a mash bill of at least 51% corn. If it’s predominantly rye, wheat, or malt grain-based, then by law the spirit can’t be called bourbon.
Figuring out what constitutes whisky or whiskey is a lot simpler than in the past when nobody really knew what was going on. The simplest way to remember is If the country of origin has an “e” in it, then spell it whiskey. See, clear as mud!

The 10 Best Jordans of All Time
Even if you are not a sneakerhead and don’t know all the nitty-gritty details of every pair of kicks on the market, you’re sure to recognize a pair of Jordans when you see them. Or not. I can spot a pair from a mile away; however, I have a friend that doesn’t know the difference between a pair of Nike Jordans and a pair of Adidas Gazelles, which is upsetting, but I digress…
One of the most classic and iconic sneaker styles ever, Jordans have been around for over 30 years and continue to be a part of rare and exclusive collaborations, making them a collector’s dream, with some pairs going for $12k or more. So get your wallet and credit cards out because you may just max them out as you go through this list.
1. Jordan 1 Retro Chicago (2015)
Undoubtedly the most popular style and colorway of all time as far as Jordan’s go. Last released in 2015, this iconic high-top silhouette has become the staple for street ballers, basketball fans, and sneakerheads alike. Since the airing of The Last Dance, the white/varsity red-black Chicago colorway has skyrocketed in popularity, but for the right price you can still get your hands on a pair.
2. Jordan 3 Retro Black Cement (2018)
To celebrate Mr. Jordan’s 55th birthday in 2018, the Jordan 3 Retro emblazoned sneakers feature the original “Nike Air” branding on the black cement for the first time since 2001. This mid-top kick has a black-based leather upper with cement grey, fire red, and white accents. Finished off by the iconic elephant print detailing, it’s one of the most iconic Jordan’s around.
3. Jordan 6 Retro Black Infrared (2019)
The Air Jordan 6 Retro “Infrared” is a 2019 re-release of the OG colorway. The shoe’s black nubuck upper includes a reflective 3M layer with perforations throughout for breathability. The heel, tongue, and lock sport Infrared accents, with the color also featured on the signature midsole detailing. Visible Air in the heel provides cushioning, while the translucent sections continue down onto the outsole for traction.
4. Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shadow 2.0
This very rare OG colorway has hit shelves only three times in the 30 year history of Jordans, making these a must-own for any AJ1 collector. The shoe features a black and grey leather upper with original “Nike Air” branding on the tongue tag and insoles, along with a white midsole and black outsole. It should be noted that the grey leather panels found on the “Shadow 2.0” are lighter in color than the original grey leather on the first “Shadow.”
5. Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Shattered Backboard
Released in 2015, the “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1 High is inspired by a 1985 exhibition game in Italy in which Michael Jordan broke the glass backboard after a dunk. Constructed in high-quality tumbled leather in the original high top silhouette, the orange, black, and white colorway is taken from the team uniform MJ wore during the game and modeled after the OG “Black Toe” AJ1 color block. Highly limited upon its initial release, the “Shattered Backboard” Air Jordan 1 disappeared quickly and is now one of the most sought after pairs of not just Jordans, but of sneakers, in general.

6. Air Jordan 1 Retro Royal (2017)
An original colorway of Michael Jordan’s first signature shoe, this 2017 re-release receives an upgrade in regards to the quality of materials used and its shape, which is truer to the actual 1985 release. The Varsity Royal blue paneling appears in tumbled leather on the toe box, Swooshes, heel, and ankle.
Black premium leather covers the remainder of the upper to complete the classic color blocking. A clean, white midsole balances out the shoe, maintaining the iconic motif along with the Varsity Royal outsole.
7. Jordan 13 Retro Low Chutney
Putting a spin on the iconic Jordan 13 design, Tinker Hatfield designed the Chutney as a stand out in the Air Jordan family. And stand out they do.
The difference between this chutney design and a traditional 13 lies in the cut. These retros replace the classic high top style with a mid top and feature a tan suede upper.
8. Jordan 1 Retro High Dior
If you happen to have $10k-12k burning a hole in your pocket then here is a place for you to spend it. One of the most highly anticipated launches, The Dior x Air Jordan 1 High sneakers are the first collaboration between the luxury brand and sneaker giant.
Featuring a premium white leather upper with wolf grey overlays and the classic Dior logo on the swoosh, this version of the iconic high-top silhouette is a stand-out. The collar has also been altered, stamped with a special “Air Dior” logo.
9. Air Jordan 1 Retro High Rust Pink
Again, if you happen to have $6+ grand just waiting to be spent, first, what do you do for a living, if I may ask, and second, please buy these shoes. These Jordan 1 Retro High Rust Pink kicks were released in early 2017, adding a coral pink “Rust Pink” hue to the two-tone color blocking previously seen on other classic AJ1 silhouettes.
The black paneling features a premium tumbled leather construction, while the midsole appears in white.
10. Air Jordan 5 Retro SP PS “Off-White - Sail
Every sneakerhead remembers when Nike teamed up with Virgil Abloh for the now iconic “The Ten” collection. Abloh added a second colorway to his Jordan 5 collaboration with the Jordan 5 Retro High “Off-White Sail.” This release pays homage to the first pair of Jordans that Virgil ever owned, the Air Jordan 5.
In signature fashion, Virgil has reimagined this classic silhouette with his own recognizable style. This Jordan 5 consists of a sail textile mesh upper with translucent netted panels and circular window inserts throughout the shoe. 3M reflective tongues, fire red Jordan branding, and an aged translucent outsole completes the design.
