While approaching a woman don’t stare at her

While approaching a woman to talk to her, don’t stare at her.

Even if she’s not looking at you directly, she can sense your stare.

Women find this creepy.

Not good.

When I approach, I act as if I’m looking around for something and
am about to ask for directions.

Once you get to her, you definitely want to give her eye contact.
But before you get to her, look away for a bit.
