I don't know if I'm a feminist - I am an 'equalist'... xD
I say be honest, but flirt a bit first - being waaaaay too upfront way too quickly scares most women off, or makes them think the dude doesn't want to waste his time on a girl - or makes them think the guy already predicts he's going to be denied, so they deny him...
So honest and a bit fun/ny - flirty - works for me. =)
I'm not a feminist. But I think most people are really bad at approaching for romance. I'm surprised so many people are getting laid.
Personally, just be upfront. I'm not a good person to flirt with, I prefer to get to the point. You are interested in a date, cool. Just say it. You are interested in just getting to know me, I'll ask why but still, just say it. Hell, even if you're interested in just fucking, just say it. Don't get it twisted though. Just you asking will not guarantee a yes from me. But I will respect you and all men in general a little more if you just tell me wtf because I'm too old to be pussyfooting around. We're adults. I know it can be nerve-wracking, but I prefer bluntness.
I'm more of a brutal honesty and direct type of person though. So this obviously doesn't apply to every girl.
"Hey, I'm into you and would like to get to know you better." --> straightforward, to the point and not at all creepy.
I'm not bothered who pays (it makes me uncomfortable to talk about money, but it also makes me uncomfortable to have my shit paid for so I'm always uncomfortable) and I *really* don't care if you open doors for me or whatever. I open doors for people because it's a nice thing to do.
I can't really think of anything beyond don't coddle me. I've got multiple degrees in engineering, I'm not stupid. There's no reason to treat me like a child (though I'm admittedly terrible at euphemisms, but that's bilingualism for ya.)
"Hey, (insert something about something not sexual or sleazy and everything should be good to go)"
Maybe, "hey that was a great game" "hey I saw you ordered a blah blah, that's my favorite" "hey, my name is ZootyBooty."
I would prefer if he didn't just say I was pretty or whatever. I would prefer a few minutes into the conversation he said something nice like "You have great eyes" but I would like if he didn't focus too much on my face because it's easy to give off the vibe that all he wants is my body/face, ya know"
" hi my name is ___ , I saw you and just thought you were really beautiful/pretty/gorgeous " . I'd say something alone the lines of " Oh well thank you , I'm flattered. I'm ___ , nice to meet you " if I wasn't interested I would simply tell them thank you but I am not interested
You'll never get a correct answer to this response. Because before feminists, we are women. And women don't even know what they want. Seriously. The answers to this question will range from 0 to gravity. Did that even make sense? I bet it didn't lol
Feminists have a damaged view of men and frankly have exceedingly poor social skills and poor social intelligence. Seriously, the problem is with them, not you. So don't go out of your way to accommodate them. That's like giving a tantrum tossing child what they want to appease them. It doesn't do anyone any good.
It doesn't matter since guys are not interested in feminists anyway.
Well, according the The Guardian, not acting like a male feminist is a start. :P
