How can you approach an attractive woman without sounding like a fool or just looking absolutely ridiculous? Well, many men constantly ask themselves this particular question every day. But little do they know that the common error that men tend to make is the mistake of analyzing the situation way too deeply. They ask themselves questions like “What should I say to her?” or “Should I tell her that she looks absolutely amazing today, or does that sound like I’m saying that she only looks amazing today but not every day?”

These questions plus a million more can run through a man’s head in a matter of seconds before he decides to make his official move. Little do they know that by just being themselves and by not trying too hard to be something that they’re not, things could result in a positive outcome. Of course, if the woman you’re trying to pursue is out of your league or just completely not into you, it can also result in failure (sorry, just trying keeping it real here).

With that being said, a woman loves a man who has his game tight! Meaning that he’s goal oriented, ambitious, confident, and can carry a swagger that’s totally unpredictable. Although it sounds like women want entirely too much, we’re willing to reciprocate the favor.

Therefore, in this issue of Girls, the Lowrider staff decided to bring you women who have their stuff together. We want to show you that these girls are gorgeous and that behind all of the lipstick, eye shadow and sexy clothing, there’s a woman with a real personality and an education that will lead to success.Lowrider Staff
