Is "Grinding" An Acceptable Way For A Man To Introduce Himself?

Is "Grinding" An Acceptable Way For A Man To Introduce Himself?

A British man surveyed 143 women in clubs between the ages of 18-28 about what works when a man is trying to get their attention at a bar. While most said it's better that a man introduces himself by starting a conversation, 30% said "grinding" (when he rubs his "pelvis" against you on a dance floor) was acceptable. In fact, about 84% have experienced such an introduction. So ladies, is "grinding" an acceptable way for a man to introduce himself?

That is disgusting. I hate that in my country that f*cking Reggaeton music is so hot right now. It's some sort of "latino hiphop" but very sexual. The dance is called "perreo", so you can imagine, perro=dog, perreo is the way a dog rubs against the female dog (altough is an invented word) So basically the dance is the guy grabbing you and rubbing against you, mixed with some r&b and hiphop dance moves. I can't believe that that damn stupid music and gross dance is so hot right now. Ew. Of course, I dont dance to it. I did it once cause i didn't know how it was, and then, ew, never again!!

No it's not. Some guy did that to me years ago in a bar when I was with my boyfriend. The place was very crowded but i had a pretty good idea who it was.I approached him and proceeded to slap him in his face.....

If some random guy I'd never met before grinded against me to introduce himself, he'd be more likely to get kneed in that area than getting to date me.

This guy must have interviewed British women, if he did that to many American women, he'd be missing his teeth by now.

It depends who it is. If it's Taye Diggs, YES, it's ok... but if it's Patrick Swayze, it ain't cool!

It just wrong. Creepy and wrong. I hope they realize that that's about as far as they're ever going to get with a woman.
