I’m a big believer in gathering as much data as you can do you can filter it down appropriately.
For that reason, you should ask everyone you have the chance to – men, women, trees, dogs, what have you – any question you want an answer to.
The answers (or lack thereof, as the case may be) yet get are all useful information.
In addition to asking, however, you should be observing behavior. Watch to see what people do in relation to others and when they are alone, and then formulate your approach based on everything you know of them.
For example, if there is a girl you want to ask out – find out what you know about her first.
Does she always wear a particular brand of clothing? Is she always eating the same kind of yogurt? Does she belong to any clubs? Does she listen to any music you like?
Find out what you have in common (don’t pretend to be something you aren’t) and work with that.
