If the idea of talking to an attractive woman has you breaking out in a sweat and eyeing the exit then, yeah, we get it. Talking to pretty much anyone can have you breaking out in palpitations sometimes. But somehow, talking to a hot woman really gets the pulse racing – even if you’re a confident guy.
But, fun fact: women want to talk to men too.
And if you’re looking to try your game and get your seduction skills started, well… You’ll need to face your fears and understand how to talk to women. And especially smokin’ hot women.
Now this might not even be in a date setting… It might be at work, at school, or simply on the metro or something. But knowing how to approach and speak to attractive women is a big man skill, so lets level up.
Before we get down to business, let’s just lay some basic groundwork.
Having the right mindset when talking to women
Talking to anyone, including attractive women, means you’ll need to have the right mindset. As a shy guy, or a man who is just lacking a bit of confidence, you’ll need to deal with a few personal issues.
These will mostly relate to your self-confidence. If you have an issue with talking to women in general, you might need to focus on a few other things first.
- Improve your grooming and presentation – a key element in how you come across and an important part of how she will react to you in the long run
- Be clean. Shower daily and wear deoderant. Cologne is not an essential but a nice touch (a gentle spritz will do)
- Understand that women are people too. Just because she’s hot doesn’t mean you can’t talk to her. But…
- Realize that arrogance is not an alpha-male trait. Despite what you might have heard, being a dick does not get the girl. Be nice, respectful and just play it cool. You got this son!
Having the right mindset part 2
So you’re clean, well presented and you’re not gonna be a dick to her. So now the next step in knowing how to speak to women is to simply….
Relax and lighten up!
This is also a key factor in the playboy mindset too.
Here are a few simple things to do (in your mind) to help you both approach that gorgeous woman, and know how to speak to her when you’re there….
- Believe in yourself: Remind yourself of your strengths and achievements. This will help you build self-confidence and make you feel more comfortable when approaching women.
- Focus on the conversation: Instead of worrying about how attractive the woman is, concentrate on having a meaningful and engaging conversation with her. This will help you feel more relaxed and natural.
- Be genuinely interested: Show genuine interest in the woman you’re talking to. Ask questions about her life, hobbies, and experiences. This will not only help you connect with her but also take the focus off of your shyness.
- Practice active listening: Make sure to listen attentively to what she’s saying and respond thoughtfully. This will show her that you’re genuinely interested in getting to know her and help you feel more connected to the conversation.
- Be yourself: Don’t try to be someone you’re not. Be genuine and authentic in your interactions, and women will appreciate your honesty and sincerity.
- Don’t fear rejection: Understand that rejection is a natural part of dating and socializing. Don’t let the fear of rejection hold you back from talking to attractive women. Remember, you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
- Take baby steps: If you’re extremely shy, start by making small talk with women in low-pressure situations, like at a coffee shop or bookstore. As you gain more confidence, you can gradually move on to more challenging situations, like approaching women at parties or social events.
- Relax and have fun: Remember that talking to attractive women should be a fun and enjoyable experience. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself, and try to enjoy the process of getting to know new people.
Read those steps back and then realise one thing: they all rely on your confidence and being relaxed.

OK. So you’re in the right frame of mind… How can you get started talking to that hot woman, and maybe even get her to like you?
Step one: Breaking the ice
When it comes to breaking the ice with an attractive woman, the key is to be genuine, confident, and engaging. Here are some tips and conversation starters to help you break the ice:
- Start with a genuine compliment: Compliment her on something specific, like her outfit, hairstyle, or a unique accessory. Make sure the compliment is sincere and not overly forward.
Example: “I really like your necklace, it’s very unique. Where did you get it?”
- Ask open-ended questions: Open-ended questions encourage more in-depth conversations and show that you’re genuinely interested in getting to know her.
Example: “What do you like to do for fun?” or “What’s your favorite type of music?”
- Find common ground: Look for shared interests or experiences that can help you connect with her on a deeper level.
Example: “I noticed you’re reading a book by Malcolm Gladwell. I’m a big fan of his work, too. What do you think of the book so far?”
- Make a light-hearted observation: Comment on something interesting or amusing happening around you. This can help create a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
Example: “This place has the best people-watching, don’t you think?”
- Ask for her opinion: People generally enjoy sharing their thoughts and opinions. Asking for her opinion on a topic can help you engage her in a conversation.
Example: “I’m looking for a new book to read. Do you have any recommendations?”
- Be present in the moment: If you’re at an event or social gathering, talk about your experiences or thoughts on the event itself.
Example: “I’ve never been to a wine tasting before. Have you tried any wines tonight that you really liked?”
- Use humor: A well-timed, light-hearted joke or playful comment can help ease tension and create a more relaxed atmosphere.
Example: “I have to admit, I’m pretty terrible at small talk. Do you have any tips for surviving these kinds of events?”
Step two: Go with the flow
If you’ve broken that ice and your conversation is flowing, you should be in the zone. There’s not much to say here apart from to remind you to relax and focus on what we’ve already mentioned above.
Simple tips to remember here are:
- Be an active listener
- Ask her questions that are genuine
- Don’t force the conversation
One really good tip to remember when talking to anyone, but especially when talking to a woman you find very attractive is…
Let the silence happen!
Sometimes there will be a pause. It might come off like an awkward silence, or it might be a moment to let whatever was said sit for a moment.
In this moment it can give you a moment to recollect your thoughts and perhaps change the angle.
A good option here is either to go back to a point you were speaking about to clarify the situation. Or, if you have the banter, hit her with a joke, fun fact or tall tale that you can keep her focused with.
One key thing with knowing how to talk to women is having confidence, and this is reflected in how you handle a silence. Avoid grasping for your phone or awkwardly trying to keep the last point going when it just died on its ass.
But if you want to really get her focused on you, you’ll need to know how to do the next tip.
Step three: Building a rapport
The golden grail when talking to a hot woman? Building that rapport, making her feel relaxed and at ease in your company.
Of course every woman is different, so you’ll need to analyse the situation and adapt according to her. But if you want to talk to a woman with the aim of building a rapport, these are all solid tips to bear in mind:
- Be empathetic: Show understanding and empathy for her feelings and experiences. This will help her feel more comfortable opening up to you and sharing her thoughts.
- Share personal stories: Open up and share your own experiences, thoughts, and feelings. This will help her see you as a genuine and relatable person, which can strengthen the rapport between you.
- Maintain eye contact: Eye contact is an essential element of building rapport. Maintaining eye contact while speaking to her shows that you’re engaged and interested in the conversation.
- Use body language: Positive body language, such as smiling, nodding, and leaning in slightly, can help convey your interest and make her feel more at ease.
- Be patient: Building rapport takes time, especially if you’re shy. Give yourself and the woman you’re talking to enough time to feel comfortable and establish a connection.
- Practice: The more you practice talking to attractive women and building rapport, the more confident and comfortable you’ll become in these situations.
Again, much of this comes down to being relaxed and confident. If you find yourself nervous around attractive women, it might be wise to focus on your personal confidence.
OK. Next step. You want to see her again right? How are you gonna ask for her number?
Step four: Asking to see her again
Let’s assume you both had a good chat, and she laughed at your jokes, maybe even touched your arm at some point. And you’ve clearly found her attractive, so… Can we see each other again?
A good way to broach the subject is to:
- Tell her you’ve enjoyed her company
- Ask her what she does for fun on weekends
- Mention that you have something coming up she could be part of
A sample closing line could be, “Hey it’s been great talking to you. You’re great fun… Look, I’m going to see a band next weekend, would you like to come along? I have a spare ticket”.
Or, “I’ve loved our chats this evening, I’d love to stay in touch. Can I get your number?”
Yes that last one is kinda direct. But theres a reason for that.
Sometimes it’s good just to get a straight answer. Maybe you’re not totally sure if you’ve clicked and you want to get that solid yes or no.
And here is a key point.
Be prepared for rejection, and be gracious if it does come.
Just because you had a good chat doesn’t always mean you can get the digits. And thats fine, maybe she has her reasons.
If she says, “Sorry I’ve got something else going on that weekend” or maybe, “You’re a lovely guy, but I’ll have to pass” – then thats cool. Respect her decision and move onto the next.
Say thanks and it was great talking to you and leave her to her day/evening.
Look. There is a lot of info in this post and when it comes to knowing how to talk to women as a confident guy, it comes down to just a couple of points.
- Relax and believe in yourself
