1 Invading Her Personal Space

If you’re trying to pick up a woman, you don’t want her to think you’re a pervert or that you don’t respect her. So, you should be mindful of her personal space. This means that you shouldn’t stand too close to her unless she invites you to or she moves towards you. If she leans away or looks away, it means you're violating her personal space and making her uncomfortable. According to psychologists, there are four zones that make up the space around us. The personal zone is from 18 inches to 4 feet, and is for those people you are getting to know. When someone violates our personal space, the part of our brain responsible for the fear response (the amygdala) becomes activated. If you stay within the guidelines, you should be safe. Of course, you should pay attention to the cues and know that if things are going exceptionally well, it may be okay to slowly get closer to her.
