    Hello everyone! I have got an interesting experience to share. Basically, I am regular gym-goer who works out pretty much everyday and at my gym there is one girl who is pretty fit and cute as well.

    Normally, I am proper focused and not really looking here and there while working out but since I have seen this girl who makes eye contacts from wherever she is working out. I thought she might be interested as she keeps looking at me several times and I could literally feel that.

    So I decided I should maybe talk to her and being a shy person it was hard but on the other hand I do not like having any regrets so I thought I would give it a try. At least it will be out of my head.

    She was working hard and I was looking for that moment when she is resting or something when I can initiate the conversation. However, what happened was something I could not understand as for me girls are sometimes very difficult to understand.

    The way I tried to talk was first to start a conversation by asking a simple question like are you from ....country? Actually I asked her while she was walking back to her workout area after putting back the weights. She stopped and responded with a "no" and kept walking which got me into the most awkward situation ever.

    Then I had to continue with my workout as I could not talk any further as she left the place quickly. Then I was near the weights area and I saw her talking to her friend with whom I normally see her talking in the gym often. she was laughing and I felt maybe she was talking about me and what just happened.

    When she finished working out she went with that friend of hers. I could not understand what just happened as I thought she was interested and the way she reacted left me wondering what was that?

    I've never heard of a conversation starter that involves asking if they're from a certain country, that's just weird. Also, you've asked a yes/no question so you haven't really given her an opportunity to speak.

    Why not ask her what she's working on? You have a common interest in the gym, so that's a good place to start as an ice breaker topic.

    Jeez man...how could you mess this up. You could of just said “Hi. Could I work in with you? I’m Chad btw and you are?”. Instead you decide to do this *tip toes behind her back* *whispers in her ear* “Arr-Are you from Somalia?”
