I don't have a problem talking or walking up to people, but the hardest part for me is figuring out what to say. Most people love to have a conversation, even with a stranger. Again, the hardest part in talking to women, to me, is finding something to say that we both would find interesting.

So here's a twist to the thread: what do you say to a stranger (man or woman)? If you ask a woman out, how do you go about it?

I don't think there is a standard thing you can say to everyone, it just depends on the situation.  Usually, just breaking the ice with a humorous or positive comment on the current situation will lend itself well to a conversation.
People are not limited by the circumstance that they are born in. They are limited by the size of their dreams. Show them that their dreams can have no limits and in turn their accomplishments can be limitless.

Remember that Babe Ruth struck out many more times than he ever hit a home run.

Plant a 100 seeds, and one will grow. So, talk to a 100 women, and at least 1 will turn out well.

I think its funny that I'm pretty shy around new people, but my best friends are some of the most outgoing people around!

I think they help me warm up, and i help them quiet down

Tucker.. did you have a run in with Sweeney Todd or something?!  :o

Just walk up to her and say, "Man, is it HOT in here...or is it just YOU?"

Then wink at yer while pointing both index fingers at her with yer thumbs up (like finger pistols).

Works for me EVERY TIME  O:O

I see where you are going with this but when it comes to the matters of the heart (haha, I really just wrote that) I take a different road. (The 100 seeds may work for other parts though ;D) While looking  for women is something we all do, I only concentrate my charms and efforts with girls that I seem to have a real pull towards. I am still polite with everyone, but would rather put my efforts towards girls I think are also putting effort towards me. I also find that when I am not like every other guy throwing myself at a girl with stupid lines and stunts, she wants to know why and starts talking to me! This may not work with everybody, but I like it.

Just depends on your goals. Serious girlfriend or one night stand? :)

I am NOT shy!  I just walk up and say, "hey, how are you today?"

I'm married, so I don't really date a whole lot any more.   ;D  Wife frowns on it.  I am a very big flirt though.  My wife will say to me, "You were flirting with her".  i don't realize I do it.  I think it is just part of my personality.  I'm also in sales for a living, so being outgoing is good for me.

I make it a rule to be nice to everyone unless they take it for granted.  Once you cross that line,  :x!

I find walking up to a woman and saying, "Whats up biotch?" works really well.
You get a quick read and can continue the convo or move on... sometimes very quickly!  :)
