What Is Cold Approaching? The Complete 3 Part Guide

A cold approach, or the act of cold approaching, is the process of introducing yourself to someone you don't know.

You simply see someone you'd like to meet, and you take the steps to introduce yourself.

Are you tired of being alone? Fed up with striking out with potential partners? It’s time to try something new and revolutionary: the world of pick-up artists and their controversial relationship advice! Found on the dark side of dating advice, they claim to teach the key to unlocking the hearts of anyone they desire.
