May I have your attention, please?

Sometimes the dating scene can be like sliding doors. We are constantly passing one another, rarely slowing down long enough to connect. What does it take to get the attention of someone you like? How do you get the “right” kind of attention?

When you don’t have a lot of confidence, it isn’t always easy to get the attention of someone you are interested in. If you are shy, especially a shy woman, it’s particularly difficult to stand out from the crowd. What get a man’s attention?

Ladies, what turns your head and get’s you interested?

When was the last time someone got your attention and made you take notice? What did they say or do to make you perk up?

Happy Friday!

When was the last time someome goty attention?

Very very very recently. In this case though as much as I could with, I can’t seem to get him to understand thay a bit more clarity is needed. Maybe he does maybe it’s not worth trouble.

Good morning.

“How do you get the “right” kind of attention?” – That’s the million dollar question. Being around the caliber of men you want to attract will definitely help, but that’s easier said than done.

“Ladies, what turns your head and get’s you interested?” – A well dressed man gets my attention, then his conversation ignites me wanting to get to know more about him. A nice smile with all his teeth helps as well.

Happy Friday!

The last time someone got my attention, he did something really nice for someone else and didn’t say anything about it. I took notice of the fact that he wasn’t expecting anything for doing it, and it seemed to come naturally to him to be kind, generous, and sweet (not fake, rehearsed or out of pity/obligation). It’s cliche but being genuine is key.

Another thing that I’ve noticed before is when someone really tries to be understanding of other people’s perspectives, even when it doesn’t make sense to them at first. I’m definitely interested in someone who will not judge me or others for anything. Life is too good and too short for all that.

I’m also interested in someone who is quick to laugh and smile. And I don’t mean laughing at other’s expenses or flirtatiously smirking at a cutie either. Again, being authentic is key.

Good morning,

O/T: (sorry so early) But why in the sam hill do you have your two little girls in short-sleeved tshirts, pajama bottoms and flip flips with NO jackets out at Mickey D’s. Then yo azz has on cutoff short short blue jean shorts with flip-flips in the cold weather???? There is no excuse for not at least having your kids dressed appropriately for the weather. Sorry, now back to your regulary scheduled program.

Getting attention is not that difficult…getting ACTION is quite different. To get attention, all you have to do is get closer just smile and make a seemingly innocent, friendly, comment/conversation starter, i.e. weather, a question about where to find something in Publix, innocuous compliment about the style of a lady’s outfit, or the old standby, “is it Friday yet?”. The key is to present friendly, comfortable, and polite…big smile, big smile.

The hard part is the transition from the idle chit chat to “By the way, I’m Randy, nice to meet you”, and then to “I don’t normally do this with someone I just met by accident, but maybe if you come here often perhaps I could buy you a cup of coffee sometime…you seem like an interesting person and someone I’d like to know more about”. That part is hard. And though it might actually work on rare occasions, I do not recommend saying something like, “I’d like to kiss every inch of your body, are you free for the next few hours”. I don’t recommend that.

i went back and reread WD’s commentary and saw this line that tells all…”rarely slowing down long enough to connect”.

There lies the problem. The true key lies in a song by an old group, Simon and Garfunkel, ”

“Slow down, you move too fast,
You’ve got to make the morning last,
Kicking down the cobblestones,
Looking for fun and feeling groovy”

Just do it…slow down. you will be stunned at the benefits.

Morning, all! TGIF!!

What initially gets my attention is a nice smile or perhaps a nice gesture that I happen to see. What keeps my attention beyond that is good, intelligent, witty conversation.

“I’d like to kiss every inch of your body, are you free for the next few hours”. I don’t recommend that

Changing my name to “The unknown Vols fan”. Keep two bags around in case my first one falls off.

Hard to believe ITL. I won’t lie, I thought UGA was a pretender for most of the season, but I can’t argue with the performance you’ve displayed the last few weeks. Your beatdown of Auburn was very impressive. KY, in addition to not being very good to begin with as always, has always snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. they have a losing mentality and truly find a way to lose games they actually are competitive in. You will beat them by thirty points unless Richt pulls his horses out to save them for the SEC title.

That said, as you know, my Vols have played Alabama, LSU, and Arkansas and a few more in the top 15. Honestly, UGA may surprise me, but LSU and Alabama are both in a league of their own. It is them and then all the rest. They have few if any holes. That game will not be easy.

I don’t think there’s anything a chick could specifically do to get my attention. I’m either magically interested, or not. Likewise, I don’t do anything to try and attract any specific kind of attention to myself. If someone notices, fine and great; if not, cool.

Good morning!

I like Linds post

Light/Randyt – I am FIRED UP about the Dawgs!

Topic – Well groomed, nice teeth and a warm face get my attention. Note I said a warm face, the intense type scare me. Then being able to hold an intelligent conversation and an ease about himself that puts others around him at ease is nice. Must have a sense of humor. A gentleman that does not come out of the gate crude talking about sex. I like a man that’s a little more smooth with his, because as I’ve quoted before on here “an empty wagon makes the most noise”. Dudes that are all bragadocious usually come up short.

As for what has always attracted men to me? I’m just myself. I never leave the house not looking my best. I am intelligent but I don’t take myself too seriously. I can hold a great conversation and I don’t talk down to anyone. I have a good, if not goofy, sense of humor. Dudes seem to like my butt. I got put in the friend zone quite a bit, but thats okay. I got a friend and a lover in my husband!

Good Morning Everyone,

Here’s my $0.02:

Getting attention isn’t hard at all, guys always notices a woman when she enters a room. Getting the attention you want and from the person you desire is another thing all together. I don’t think you can force it. If the guy is interested, he’ll make his way over to you. All men already know what/who he wants, so no effort is really all that necessary to get his attention. He already knows, if he doesn’t acknowledge the fact that you have his attention could be because one of the following: he is not interested, he is very shy himself, he’s with somebody already, or some other woman already has his undivided attention.

well I’ll attempt to answer the topic question at face value. I’m talking the stranger across the room type situation. first things first, for me, is what a guy is wearing and how he’s wearing it. no denying you can put two folks in the exact same get up and one just wears it better. I like a man that looks good in his clothes. and I’m not just talking suited up. some fellows look really good when balling in their basketball shorts and tshirts and some don’t. I’m also attracted to the fresh, sharp haircut. not really feeling the bald head look and I’m not a fan of the cornrowed, dreadlocked man, long haired man. I’m a big fan of the quiet, pensive type fellow. he’s pleasant and speaking to folks but not out there trying to be the life of the party. trust me when I say I don’t have a shy bone in my body. if I see it and I like it, I’m on it. the bigger issue is I just don’t see it that much. I was out last weekend in a town where I essentially knew no one except the person I was with. didn’t see a single man worth batting an eyelash over. not a single one.

We spend a LOT of time and money keeping ourselves in shape, dressing nice, etc. (at least most of us do), so guys, do the same or don’t be surprised if you don’t get attention from the ladies you want! Everyone wants someone they’re atracted to – just a basic biological fact.

mike/audra – I’m not even attacking folks for whether or not they are in shape (though not denying that’s a valid point). I’m being straight shallow with mine. some folks just don’t fill those clothes out as well as others do. I can’t stand to see a man or woman in a bad A suit and it’s just hanging all willy nilly because they can’t fill it out right. I hate to see women wear boots with skirts and there is enough room for another leg in the boot. I won’t even start on the folks that are busting out of their clothes. there’s something out there for everyone. folks need to try to find what works for them/with them and stick with it.

As far as getting a woman’s attention, I just be myself. That’ll be enough to get the attention of the women who are looking for a guy like me.

One of the most flattering things a woman can do to a man is when she acknowledges that he has caught her attention especially when it’s from a random stranger, unsolicited and unexpected without props and staging.

I just discovered that I left my chapstick in the car. dang it. I had to put on gloss.

cool shadow – back when I was still clubbing and whatnot my fail proof pick up was to walk over to guy who was likely chilling with one or more pals. I’d step up, excuse myself for interrupting, lean in and say something like “I don’t want to interrupt you guys but if you’d like to dance/have a drink/chat a bit later, I’ll be sitting over there” and indicate where I’m sitting. it was short, sweet and to the point. it was easy, not much fear of rejection because I said what I said and then went on about my way. if he followed me cool, if not it’s one for the game. still, almost every single time dude would eventually make his way to where I was and ask me to dance or offer to buy a drink.

@ Leggs…It could be interpreted that way for sure. Isn’t that about the first question we ask when a relationship tanks…”weren’t we could enough under the sheets?” I guess it brings up to me the old “what does/did he/she have that I don’t?” question. Men are very competitive in romance and war. When we don’t win, we want to know what it took to beat us…even if we are grateful inside.

kym – that’s just it. I don’t think I’ve got any flirting skills whatsoever. i have zero talent when it comes to flirting on the fly. now in an “out” situation I feel I’m at an advantage. 1st advantage is I know I look good because I wouldn’t step out otherwise. 2nd advantage – guys really do get a kick out of being approached. 3rd advantage – they get to watch you walk away and trust me when I say he and his boys will be watching you walk away. my backside is an asset and I know it but I guess that part could be a disadvantage to some.

The hardest booties to NOT stare at have a bad habit of being the one’s most dangerous to stare at.

The former HR director here at this company had a face and a body to die for (5′ 11″ and all legs)…but staring at the person who can have your azzz on the street is NOT GOOD. The day I was being hired I think I was trying to repeat the words to the poem “The Jabborwacky” in my mind to try not to stare.

Went to Mickie D’s with my Daddy and the boy(son)..I am focused on talking to the young lady behind the counter and placing the order. As I go to get my drink and pass the boy his cup. He looks at me and says “oh you think you cute for a old lady”(yes my son calls me old lady anyone over 25 is old). I look up and my daddy says “Son, your mom is still a woman..and then tells me some dudes at the end were looking at me.” My son in his loudest voice “No she is not..she is my mama.”
Apparently I am not allowed to be cute since I am his mama.

Leggs – On our sale days, there is this guy that sits across the walkway from me and he is notorious for gawking at women when they pass by. So one day, I made up a few smiley face signs. One had a big smile with the tongue hanging out salivating to represent – Damn Gurl you FIONE! The next was a simple smiley face to represent – She Aight! The third one had a sad face and of course the last one was of a face about to puke. So when I’d catch him checking a chick out, I’d hold up one of the signs across the way and he’d give me a thumbs up if I guessed right and a thumbs down if I was wrong. I had him cracking up.

  ♫

November 18th, 2011

For every one woman that says something like: “A well dressed, presentable man with good manners gets my attention” I would wager 10 more are thinking: A well dressed man who’s a “bad boy” and drives around in a leased car, looking like he’s got some “bling bling”, or so sometimes it seems that way.

From personal experience, being a well-dressed average-to-slightly above average, physically-fit professional is simply not enough.

I’m sure it’s not always the case, or maybe it was mostly from younger women who only give attention to the “bad boys” until they’re divorced/stranded/abonded and their biological clock is running out.

It makes it very frustrating to try and be a nicely presented & honest guy when you’re rewarded with being ignored sometimes.

I’m sure there’s a parallel for women as well.

I guess it true what they say:

Water, water, everywhere-but not a drop to drink! (Plenty of women around, but very few ladies).

I ignored the comment hoping the moment would pass. she brought it back with a “did you hear me”. I had to get her straight right then and there. I then instructed my son to stay away from her. I encourage my son to be helpful and all but I told him if he saw her in need of assistance he was not to help. chick won’t be asking my son to help carry the groceries inside and then trying to get broke off. i remember telling my mother I’d do an amy fisher on her.

While I’m sitting down this older woman (about 30) sat down and started chatting me up. I remember she seemed so refined and elegant…just gorgeous. We were having a good little conversation when my mom walks up and says in a pleasantly exaggerated tone, “Hi I’m his mother. He’s just in college. Nice meeting you. Come on Dreams.” As we walked away, I was like “what was that all about”, and she just said, “She ought to know better.”

ITL Different when dads do it. I would say that what dads do isn’t even called “blocking”. We just shut the whole place down. We purposely go ALL the way overboard, to the point that after the fact we might even be a little ashamed we took it so far. lol

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I notice the condition and placement of a woman’s purse. I prefer that she has a designer bag but that is not definitive. I also think that women shouldn’t put their purse on the floor…for me, that shows a lot.

Secondly, I notice her hair, is it real, highlighted properly, colored and such (so many variables).

For me, these 2 things must be there or I won’t waste my time. However, that isn’t to mean that I’m not open to a woman who doesn’t make my initial PERSONAL quality control. I’m just not going to be the one to initiate the first words.

As a man, I notice women always look at my grooming firstly. My nails, hair, cologne, off the rack or not, accouterments and articulation of conversation. I fear no group of women as long as those ideals are in check. You must also have your person in check; however, the first comes by the latter.

ITL..I will be 40 years old next year. My daddy is 62., at my houseblessing last year..my father along with the minister apparently felt it necessary to ask the lawd not only to protect my home and all within but also to ward off all men who meant me no good. He even said before any one come up in there talking about taking up residence they would have to meet him first. I tried to remind him(not so quietly) that I was grown..and he (none to quietly) reminded me that I am the same difference in age to him now that I was the day I was born. Yeah I blame Ben Cartwright(Bonanza)

My grandma used to say that if you put your purse on the floor, you will always be broke.

Well, I don’t really have that problem. So…….as long as I’m not eating off of or out of my purse….um, yeah…..

And really, when you think about it, a purse is just a bag that you carry stuff in, much like a backpack or duffel bag. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard of anybody having a problem with those bags being on the floor.

Besides, all I really care about is that my bag is close by when I need it.

Leggs – I think En La Luz was being a smartie. (lol)

It’s funny – n the highlights, whenever I’m sitting around my house bored and I look at my hair and think it’s too dark, I ‘chunk’ a box of color in it. Sometimes, it’s bronze. Sometimes, it’s honey blond. And I usually end up with “some form” of highlights. (Although, I’m sure it’s nothing that would meet the super high standards outlined above.)

HST Do you have highlights? Leave the “womaning” to the women. I sure as he!! won’t be taking criticisms from a woman about whether my lineup in the back should be square, round, or faded. Whether I prefer the four-in-hand or Windsor knot should be of no concern to her.

I have to imagine a high voice with a lisp reading HST’s post up there. It almost makes sense if you read it like that.

Although, I admit, I don’t like colored hair much on a woman either; but there’s almost no such thing as a woman with natural hair color. Wearing certain kinds of sunglasses makes colored hair look like it’s orange, no matter what the artificial hair coloring is. Put them on, all you see are chicks orange colored hair — 9 out of 10, anyway.

First off, women spend a lot of money and time on their hair. In all my LTRs, the women have a hair dresser and spend a lot of money to have fashionable hair. My girlfriends would be pissed if I didn’t notice. I date white girls so highlights or color are almost a standard. You can tell cheap jobs from professional jobs on hair.

I am old school about the purse on the ground. ALL of the women whom I’ve dated are from the same school of thought that was explained above. However, I was taught that by my girlfriends and sometimes their cattiness on the subject. Moreover, why would you put your purse where people walk in their dirty shoes? Then put it close to your body…ick.

When I see fake bags I cringe. I quickly say to the thief, why don’t you care about mind raping someone with your fake bag…it’s called Intellectual property. Yes, I carry and have several wallets from LV and Gucci. I rotate through them and match them to my attire. I do love the finer things in life.

I am into couture and shop every weekend. I live a nice lifestyle and whomever I am with must have an understanding of what we’re doing. That doesn’t mean I expect it from my lady friends, the public or think any less if it’s not present. Most of my LTRs have crazy bag collections that I’ve gifted them.

To the guy who thinks that highlights should be left to the women…ha. Try not complementing your girl after she spends all day at the salon. If you think a women shouldn’t care about your tie then you’re delusional. Leave the “womaning’ to the women…no wonder you’re out here. Women want us to take notice and we want attention from women. It’s called attraction and I bet you would change that tie if it meant a happy ending (in whatever way).

I just can’t quit laughing at some of you. You ladies complain about meeting real men. Yet a man who cares about his appearance and notices a woman’s is just too much…HA! No wonder the woes that some of you speak of are happening. When you have to have last words such as this…

“The man in your life should not desire to move into your house, only into your heart.”

it’s no wonder some of you have the problems that you do.
