Gym Jitters

Dear Sugar
There is a super hot guy who works at my gym and we have been doing the whole "long stare" flirty thing for months and now I'm ready to move it up and have an actual conversation. Only problem is I don't know how to approach him. I've never had to make the first move with a guy and I'm not sure what to do. Do I just go up to him and say "Hi my name is...wanna go out?" HELP!!! He is super hot and I really want to go out with him. What do I do? First Move Mary

Hey First Move Mary
This sounds really sweet. Nah, you don't have to ask him out like that, just try and talk to him for a sec and see where it goes naturally. When you walk by (ideally do it when he's off of a machine) just smile and say,"Hi -What's up." Taking the first step to initiate any contact takes guts. He'll talk back. Leave it at that and if he doesn't ask you out by the end of the conversation, keep an eye on him and before you leave (or he leaves) say something to him - nothing as bold as asking him to take a steam with you, but how about handing him a piece of paper with your name and number on it and say, "Give me a call."
