    Okay i struggle both with girls i know and girls I want to get to know.

    I find it hard to get past the first hello stage, are pick up lines the way to go?

    Pick up lines always seem cheesy. Just smile and say hello, then follow up with all those other questions, like how are you? how's your day? If it's going well it should be a two way conversation with return questions. Listen to what they say, and pick up on things that they might drop in to a answer and expand on them.

    Don't ask for nudes- creepy. And don't appear too desperate.

    I'm pretty **** at small talk so my strat as of late has been find some kind of excuse to message them as though you're only messaging them for that one specific thing and then try and spin off conversation into a totally different topic.

    Seems to avoid making me feel like I reek of desperation which is the important part for myself personally, but actual success at the whole conversation thing on the whole is pretty much the same as the standard method that I feel like I can't really do ("hi, how are are you" [develop])
