I don't need to know anything. I need to be persuaded one way or another if it's worth my while to have to interact with lesser humans in order to do things that I can do with my hand.
Talking with girls
Have confidence and try not to drop spaghetti
Oh. Well that's easy. Sex is fun. Masturbation is basically artificial sweetener. Its like sugar, but the brain knows it ain't sugar.
Sex may be fun, I wouldn't know, but I can say from experience that having to explain how a steam engine works because I attempted to make a joke combining the colloquial phrase of 'blowing hot air' with the story of the Little Engine that Could is not fun at all. She could at least have the decency to say that she doesn't care what I'm talking about, but no, she has to ask what hot air has to do with trains.
When you first meet em, keep things short and simple. No long explanations about anything. Ask about them, women love to talk about themselves.
In your example, just wave off explanations for jokes or references and ask some non related question. Something like if they have pets. Its a short question that can easily lead em on a tangent and then forget about their question.
Meeting? Girls? All the ones I've said more than three words to I've sort of met by happenstance. How on earth am I supposed to spot a potential mate by sight, given that by the time I'd finished mentally planning our wedding or stopping myself from doing so, I would have resolved that I've spent too long staring at her and the chance is lost?
Practice and repetition.
Socialising is a skill like anything else.
It helps if you have some separate self confidence and regular activities and interests so you have something to talk about.
Talk to females regularly, even if you start off for a few weeks with "hi, how are you, nice weather".
You will improve. Put yourself in a place where there is a mixture of males and females, talk with them.
Talk with the females without the intent of sleeping with them or them being your girlfriend, just have a conversation and just like any skill, try to improve it as you go along. Maintaining a conversation with someone new takes practice.
Don't be afraid.
be honest and handsome
Just start by saying hi to them in passing. You will become more confident and they in turn will become more comfortable in your presence.
Practice having short conversations with random girls you meet. Do not attempt to pick them up.
