In the middle of this dance floor, a girl approached a guy, legs slightly spread, while slapping her thighs with the back of her hands while looking him in the eye.My ecologist friend, in his “Darwinian” mindset, jokingly exclaimed: “Oh wow, she’s presenting!”You don’t have to emulate an Animal Planet mating documentary to get a guy to approach you when you’re out, but body language is important. You have to give a guy an opening, and make yourself available.I want my approach to appear to be well-timed, and I don’t like it when I feel like I’m interrupting. Sometimes the situation lends itself to an approach: there’s something extraordinary to talk about, or we just bump into each other. Pay attention to your actions when you’re out. If you want guys to approach you, are you making it easy on them — are you “available”? Some girls might want the guy to “work” as part of the approach, but for every one of you who makes it tough for a guy to approach, there are women who make it easier to approach that a guy might go for instead.Here are a few things women do that prevent guys from approaching them:INTIMIDATIONLots of FriendsWhen girls are in a group, I know that I’m going to be “evaluated” as soon as I walk away. It’s tough enough to walk up to one girl, let alone a group.Too HotIf she’s super-hot, sometimes I assume I have no chance or I’m just plain intimidated. Most guys will give it the old college try though. This, by the way, is the best reason for your ego why guys aren’t approaching: “I’m just so hot I’m intimidating.”UNATTRACTIVE APPEARANCEDancing on Tables (aka Super-Drunk Girl)One night, we were out and a girl intermittently stood up on the seat of her booth and did stripper-type dances. The guys in the bar looked, but never approached. It’s tough to approach a whirling dervish and no one could take her seriously. And sometimes the “too drunk” girl gets approached by guys who are interested in one thing only.Looking SloppyI don’t usually approach girls who don’t look stylish and put together. Now, if you want to keep guys away from you, doing the “celeb in public homeless look” might be a good strategy.Looking Angry/SnobbySmiling and eye contact is inviting, while anger, and looking like you’re too good for everyone, drives people away. Try to give off positive vibes, and more people will approach.TAKENWith a Guy in Any CapacityYou appear to be taken if you arrive with guys, or meet guys while you’re out. Guys have no way of knowing if you’re “with” a guy. Some guys might ask, but some might just move on to someone who looks more available. RingNow I’ll admit that I’m clueless, even for a guy. I’m not sure about the wedding ring/engagement rules: which hand/finger gets the ring? I know one has a big diamond, and one looks like a simple ring. But unmarried women wear all sorts of rings. Your ring that looks like a wedding ring might be keeping guys away (or maybe stupid guys like me, which is probably a good thing).DO NOT DISTURBBusyIt’s easier to approach a girl who looks bored, like she wants someone to talk to. In a café, if she’s reading a book, or has her face in her laptop, I assume she’s busy and doesn’t want to deal with my stupid pick-up attempt. In a bar, if she seems content doing whatever she’s doing, I won’t want to interrupt.Tough to CatchI’ve devised strategic plans to make a move, waiting for a girl to go to the bar, or bathroom. But when she finally gets up she walks too fast, or takes “bodyguards” (tons of friends) with her. Bottom line, some women just don’t give that opening physically for the approach. Remember, your migratory patterns might be exactly what that guy is waiting for, so be on the lookout when you’re on the move.Room PositioningIf you’re in the corner all night, or buried behind chairs and tables, you not only cut yourself off from the rest of the world, but some guys don’t want to slalom obstacles to get to you. If you want guys to approach you, you might want to move or try out some other spots.Do you agree with my list above? What actions do you think deter guys from approaching you? What actions make a guy tough to approach?by Rich Santos, Marie Claire Sharing is caring! Share

TORTOLA, British Virgin Islands – The economy of this British Overseas territory, seems to be on the rebound, despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. CMC The Premier said the initiative is in an effort to “be able to bring our people along economically; even in the midst of COVID-19″. This, he said, will be done while being mindful of the country’s expenditure; considering the revenues lost so far. He also said his administration would soon unveil new areas designed to increase revenue streams in the territory. This was revealed by Premier and Finance Minister Andrew Fahie as he made a statement in Parliament recently. “We have to be vigilant and we have to also have to move towards the new initiatives. Many of them we have passed already, many more to come, and many more to be announced.” “One of them I could say for sure I’ll be announcing is some of the adjustments we have made in a move to be more transparent and accountable during pandemics and catastrophic events. [This adjustment is in relation to] the usage of the petty contract system in an accountable manner.” “We have to be so cautious because we are balancing persons’ health [and] their lives versus their livelihoods in terms of the economy,” he stated.

MORE: Dolphins owner believes season will happenThere’s also the question of a team’s window of contention during a quarterback’s rookie deal, especially given the rising costs of quarterback contracts in today’s NFL, so knowing who you have at QB sooner rather than later is a plus for a lot of teams. This all works to favor Tagovailoa, the No. 5 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. That kind of capital doesn’t — or shouldn’t — sit on the bench for long, especially when Miami showed flashes of being on the come-up last season.In all, if Tagovailoa lives up to the expectations of being an elite-caliber NFL quarterback, there’s zero harm in starting him from Week 1. And it’s good to see that becoming the rule over the exception in today’s NFL. Dolphins and NFL fans wanting to get a glimpse at Tua Tagovailoa might not have to wait long.Per Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman, it’s a “foregone conclusion” that the Alabama product could take the field as Miami’s QB1 in Week 1, and from afar, that would be the absolute correct decision. This, of course, weighing a single factor: if Tagovailoa is healthy and ready to go, which seems to be the case. Given the NFL’s trend of shifting away from sitting rookie quarterbacks to playing them right away, with varying degrees of success, playing Tagovailoa from Week 1 over Ryan Fitzpatrick is a no-brainer, simply put. After all, the myth that Fitzpatrick is a good quarterback mentor is just that — a myth — and Tagovailoa’s career and importance to a Miami franchise cursed by QB luck is more important than learning behind the mercurial Fitzpatrick.MORE: Eric DeCosta is SN’s 2019 NFL Executive of the YearBut there’s more to it than just the QB competition in South Florida. Overall, the case that rookie QBs need to start sooner in today’s NFL is stronger than ever. Daniel Jones, Kyler Murray, Drew Lock and Gardner Minshew were just four of the NFL’s rookie QBs who started games last year and had varying degrees of success — but more than enough positives to move them forward than negatives to hold them back.Jones outplayed some expectations (while turning the ball over 27 times), while Murray flashed qualities that could make him an NFL star. The mustached Minshew stole headlines and wins in Jacksonville while Lock’s 4-1 record and seven touchdowns as Denver’s starter opened eyes and provided a firm foundation for what the Broncos can expect.The age-old role of young QBs carrying a clipboard is going the way of the dodo, and that’s for the better. Tagovailoa’s college career speaks for itself, after all, and the only way to get acclimated to NFL game speed is to play in NFL games, so it’s only common sense to start the rookies sooner rather than later to really know what you have under center. Why would/should teams risk sitting a guy for three or four seasons only to discover he’s not who they thought he was?
