Most Helpful Guy
Personally, I always to reconnaissance meaning that I learn as much as I can about her even before making the first move. Like anyone about to hire a potential employee, you investigate, get references, etc. Well, it's the same with a potential mate. I wanna know how long since her last relationship and why did it end. How many times has she been married? Kids? Job? ... Some of this I can only get from her friends or from her, but my point is that I am looking for dealbreakers even before I make any moves.
In making a move, I try to do something neutral or make a deal. For instance, I might ask a woman if she helps me with _____, then I'd be happy to take her out to dinner. That's a date without it being an official date. Lots can be determined from techniques like this.0
