If some of the world’s most beautiful women can’t tell us the best way to approach women, then who can?
The Blurred Lines supermodel might be 36 years younger than Denzel Washington, but when it comes to approaching women, she says men need to channel a bit of D-Wash. “Generally, I just think there is a real lacking in men knowing how to hit on women. I have this whole running joke with someone: ‘What Would Denzel Washington Do?’ Like, you don’t think about how many days you should wait to call the girl — you just do it when you want. F***ing Denzel. You do what you want, you know what you want.”
The Sports Illustrated favourite has one simple request: shower, spray on a bit of deodorant, and give yourself a spritz of fragrance. “Guys are very attractive when they smell nice . . . you feel comfortable. It definitely happens more often than you would think, when someone comes up and you’re like, ‘Oh wow, he’s really attractive and he seems really nice’, and it just doesn’t work if he smells bad.”
We’re pretty sure she’s happy with John Legend but he must have had some serious skills in the kitchen to win her over. “I really think a home-cooked meal by a man is pretty amazing. Have some champagne, take her back, cook something, put me in front of the TV while you cook . . . Oh my God, that would be the best.”
The self-proclaimed ‘Instagram Queen’ boasts almost 400,000 followers . . . so she’s seen her fair share of guys slide into her DMs the wrong way. “Don’t slide in with your dick out! No dick pics! That is not considered bold, that’s just creepy! Don’t be a DM douche. Don’t just say, ‘Nice tits’ or ‘Great ass’, that’s boring and unoriginal. Compliment her on something that doesn’t get you hard.”
Mrs Derek Jeter must have been enamoured by the baseball star’s skills on the phone, apparently. “Don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and call. Do not text. I’m a caller. I have to text when I’m not able to call, but especially in the beginning when you’re getting to know someone you absolutely have to pick up the phone. If you want to ask them out on a date, pick up the phone. Be a gentleman. Those old school things go a long way.”
‘I love a guy with a sense of humour’ sounds like — and probably is — a cliche. But hey, if Nina says it, we’ll listen. “You can basically build a relationship from texting back and forth . . . because it was about being witty and coming up with fun responses and fun pictures and fun videos. And I feel like a lot of people don’t really have as much fun with that as they should. It’s just about taking an extra minute to think about your answer and then replying, and that will make the girl laugh or think. Just be a little more creative.”
