So you’ve made plans with your boys for all of you to save a bit of money and then book a flight to some far away place abroad, but a few weeks to a couple of days before departure date you finally realise that actually, you’ll be going all alone. Everybody has pulled out as they usually do and now you’ll be all alone without even one of your wingmen by your side to help you pull in some ladies.
No matter – being a solo traveller is actually something that can work to your advantage if you want to meet the ladies. Sure, one tends to have a lot more confidence when in a group of people, especially if that group is comprised out of those who are closest to you, but when you cross international boundaries it goes beyond what you’d usually do in the form of something like walking up to a group of girls in a bar or a club and in a sense “allocating” each of your mates to a potential match in that targeted group of lasses.
Breaking the ice
Starting up a conversation with ladies in a foreign country is about as easy as breaking the ice can get, really. Any traveller will tell you that if you can speak English, you will eventually find someone who at least understands you and within a few short seconds/minutes after that, you can find someone who speaks it perfectly as well, wherever it is in the world you find yourself. Therein lies the perfect opportunity to break the ice – all you have to do is walk up to someone, say hello and pretend you need help with something.
You perhaps don’t even need to pretend to need help as I’m pretty sure you can find something to ask about, like asking for directions, asking where a certain tourist spot is or other well-known attraction is. Heck, you can even ask about something as simple as where you can maybe buy local food, get a recharge on your local voice or data plan you took for your stay or anything really.
It really couldn’t get any easier and if you’re a bit shy then there’s a very simple way of telling whether the lady or ladies you approached with your inquiry are even in the slightest bit interested in something beyond just pointing you in the right direction.
Sealing the deal
If it was a lady who was all by herself you approached then you might have to work your charm a bit more because she may be as shy as you are, if you are shy that is. Otherwise always approach two or more girls because even the coyest among them will have the courage to take the conversation further and perhaps ask you where you’re from.
After extending the conversation to further gauge any mutual interest, you could perhaps invite them to join you wherever it is you were going, like perhaps if you were inquiring about the nearest and best club or even someplace like a nice picnic spot, restaurant, etc.
It’s simple really – just start a conversation and ask about anything local which a tourist like yourself may not know too much about.
