Audra: It’s a new year, it’s a new you so why not take matters of the heart into your own hands and just make love happen. Better relationship experts, Matt Titus and Tamsen Fadal are here with three ways to approach a potential object of affection. Tamsen: Hey everybody, it’s definitely an exciting time, a new year. We’re here at Havana Central, a very cool restaurant in Times Square where I’m sure a lot of romantic dinners go on. So let’s talk about 2010. Matt: It’s a new year, it’s a new you and it’s time to take action and actually be strategic about your love life, got to have a plan. So, the first thing I want every guy out there to do is again not be afraid to approach a woman. You got to man up and you got to make love happen. So if you want to be efficient, it’s smart about it. So no cheesy pick up lines. I used to be a little cheesy, but I’ve changed. Tamsen: You did like horoscope signs. Matt: But you know, honestly, nothing like “must be missing an angel” or “how are yah?” or anything about auras and you know, “you’re so beautiful.” Simply walk up to a woman that you think is attractive and introduce yourself. Like, “Hey, I thought I’d go up and say hi. My name is Matt, what’s your name?” Tamsen: I’m married, I’m sorry. Matt: See, she’s trained. She knows exactly what to say. But honestly, it’s okay, even if you do that and the women are married, you didn’t know. I want everybody to be really confident and not worry about the reaction of the person that you’re approaching because, you know what, they are stranger and it doesn’t matter. Tamsen: Yeah, I really agree with that. And also, when it comes to men approaching, but women, you can go the same thing, there is nothing wrong with going up to a guy and approaching him and saying something really honest. I’m not big into making something up like “do I know you from somewhere?” or this or that. I think you can say something like “Hey, I like your watch,” “this suits really cool,” “you look like my brother.” Whatever the situation is, just be honest about it because you really have nothing to lose. Matt: And the big thing about this is that a lot of women don’t usually approach men. And it, is to me, if I’m a secure guy and she walks up to me, I’m the happiest men on earth and I’ll never going to forget her, because again it doesn’t happen that often. Tamsen: Yup, and finally just to sum it up, you know, it is a new year but it certainly is okay to be single. I’d say you have to remember I think you’ve got to be okay with where you are and then that’s when you’re really got to find what you’re looking for. Matt: The highest level of confidence start when you’re secure with yourself. For instance, look it’s hard to stay in shape, we all know that, but you should beat your physical best because that makes you feel good and again, I said this before and I’ll say it again, don’t be so concerned with what the reaction is to a stranger that you’re approaching. Okay, just make love happen, go out and do it. Tamsen: Alright, folks, until next time.
