    Well, for me it has to be places like:
    the street
    public transport/stops
    whenever/wherever i've got my headphones in

    This is simply because most girls are normally not in their element in these settings, or are in a hurry, or are not aware of her surroundings so approaching her may scare her away

    what is your idea of an awkward place?

    I have never been approached so none of those would be awkward because having never been approached is much worse.

    The best way to approach a girl is to ask for Directions
    Drop your stuff preferably lots of papers
    She helps you collect them, giving you a chance to talk about the situation

    You then tell her you think shes super foxy and await a restraining order

    I find being approached just in the street pretty awkward. It's only happened a couple of times, but I was a bit taken aback and had no idea what to say/how to react. And the last time it happened I was in a rush and the guy wouldn't stop talking and I felt like I was being rude trying to get away (even though I had no idea who he was)
    So yeah, I reckon just being stopped in the street when you're going about your day

    In London this situations goes down something like this.

    You stop to ask her for directions............95% of the time she completely ignores you.

    the other 5% may stop but will just walk all over your papers once you decide to drop them.

    No romantic love connection will ever take place.

    Have you actually tested this in real life or are you just using a romcom as reference?

    Hardly ever get approached but I've been asked for directions a few times when I'm on the tube. My hearing is pretty **** so I have to ask them about three times to repeat what they've asked

    Never been approached romantically though :emo:

    In court would be pretty awkward, when you're on trial and she's the/a victim or witness

    Lol no not used it in real life, the best topics to use in real life are situational. So if a crazy person is walking past then just say hey did you see that xyz. Some will be up for a conversation others wont. But having friendly conversation with a stranger and getting a date are light years apart

    Really ? I get that its probably a terrible way of picking up girls but for general friendly conversation when I was new to London asking girls for directions or take photos of me all of them where happy to oblige even made small talk

    Train station
    At the traffic lights- unknown to me, he followed me to where I was shopping and left his number on a card on my windscreen
    In a que at the petrol station
    Library
    On a trip at the lakes with some young people I work with- they all started oohing and ahhing- and I thought I might get into trouble by my manager
