So, as y'all already know, I've up and moved 600 miles from everyone I know. I'm making a clean start of it in Leavenworth, and I need to know...

How does one go about meeting women and expressing interest, without coming off like a creepy asshole? My internal dialogue tends to be, even at bars and the like, "She's lovely, and I'd love to chat her up. However, what if I come off as a creeper, or what if she just wants to be left alone to enjoy her drink? Better do nothing, just in case."

Or, even better, "Even if she was looking to be chatted up, I'm sure she wouldn't want a schlub like me doing it..."

Redhead with a 4C for your time.
