    i am not very good at talking to people,very quiet and shy,rarely initiate a conversation if im with a group,ive been thinking lately that i should perhaps go to my local high street or town and approach girls(maybe older women too) and start talking to them,the reason i dont want to try this on guys is because 1.no homo and 2.i dont want to get punched in the face lol

    will people think im a creepy loser? or will they like it?

    thanks

    Well, it depends. If you just wander on over to a random girl in the street and start chatting she might find it weird (I would, for sure), but if you were just standing in a queue in a shop and made small talk, or browsing CDs/DVDs or whatever and started talking about films or something, I'm sure it'd be greatly appreciated

    If you go to school (college, university) I dont see why you have to approach strangers on the street to better your communication skills. Charity begins at home love. Why not start talking to people that are closer to you (school mates, course mates, friends of friends, that person you always see but dont know their name)....gain confidence, learn more about communicating with people and loose the risk of getting punched in the face or being seen a creepy loser.

    Hope that helps!! #OkBye

    Yes, if you approach girls on the street/ in random shops they will think that you are a creepy loser and avoid you like the plague. Why don't you try meeting girls at bars/pubs or restaurants/cafes?? It will seem less weird and much more friendly. Most people will not mind talking to strangers but don't try and start up a convo with a girl who is giving obvious body signals of not wanting to be bothered, like hunching over, turning away from a crowd and generally trying to make eye contact with as few people as possible. Good luck, you seem like a decent guy

    When I've been approached by people, I just talk to them otherwise I feel rude unless I'm in a rush somewhere. I don't really mind.
