Am I doing this right? Actually all of this is kind of awkward. I need to check my email! Because I really need to check my phone. Well this could get awkward. Do you approach from the side, so she can see you coming?
However, this does not do justice to the plight of all my fellow ladies out there.

That stuff does not work. Because I really need to check my phone. Girls seem to have it so easy. If that risk fails, resist the urge to blame the woman. So before we move forward, a moment of silence for all the ladies out there who are ALSO trying to work their way through a difficult and complicated social structure. By putting yourself out there you are taking a risk.
