Reason for being on here: If you try talking to a girl at a bar, she thinks you are a creep trying to sleep with her. If you make a polite comment towards a girl in the grocery store or walking in the park, you are a creeper/weirdo. If you see a beautiful girl in passing and attempt to pay her a compliment on her dress or smile, you are a stranger who is attempting to "holler at her." Simply put, you can't meet a girl in public today. When there is no background or common acquaintance shared between you two, it is difficult to begin a conversation when you both look at each other as strangers with intentions.
If I had it my way, it would be natural to meet a girl in a completely normal setting and tell her that she has a beautiful smile. Then I would ask her to join me for some coffee or maybe a slice of pizza, if she would be willing to have my company. That's the way dating should work.
But until that day comes, okcupid is the best means to meet a potentially great girl.
