Have you read the confusing and invasive advice piece by Dan Bacon entitled "How To Talk to Women Wearing Headphones" yet? If you haven't read it, or had it yelled at you through your headphones, self-proclaimed "relationship expert" Dan Bacon gives readers step-by-step instructions on how to approach a woman minding her own damn business, make her take off her headphones, and then subject her generic and sexist pick up lines. It is a gem. Here's an excerpt:

1. Stand in front of her (with 1 to 1.5 meters between you).

2. Have a confident, easy-going smile.

3. If she hasn’t already looked up at you, simply get her attention with a wave of your hand. Wave your hand in her direct line of vision so she can see it.

4. When she looks at you, smile, point to her headphones and confidently ask, “Can you take off your headphones for a minute?” as you pretend to be taking headphones off your head, so she fully understands what you mean.

If she doesn’t understand that you want her to briefly take off her headphones, simply gesture that you want to talk to her by pointing back and forth from you to her and say, “I want to talk to you for a minute.”
