It's all in the title... How often do you approach girls when you're out and about, and what exactly makes you go up to a particular girl?

I've never done a true cold approach, i'll at least look at them and see if they look back. Going in literally cold bore is a recipie for disaster and i personally think you actually ruin your chances with a girl who might have been willing if you had taken 5-10 mins to look and smile at each other first.
As for the criteria, she has to be attractive and not walking somewhere with her head down. I used to do this 'semi-cold' approach about once or twice a month (the rate which i saw a girl hot enough to bother).1
