Other Origin(s):Arabic, Brazilian
Meaning:Small butterfly; Water lady
Yara is a girl’s name of Swiss origin with Arabic and Brazilian roots meaning “small butterfly” or “water lady.” It developed from the Tupian language spoken by the indigenous Tupi people from Brazil. In Tupi-Guarani mythology, Lara or Yara was the name of a water goddess from the Tupian word _yîara_, meaning “lady of the lake. ” In Arabic, Yara means “small butterfly”—an endearing pet name for your precious little one. Though most common in Brazil and Egypt, this beautiful name can be found in a diverse range of countries. One of these is Switzerland, which has strong trade links with Brazil. Brazil was a favorite destination of Swiss emigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries, which may explain Yara’s popularity among the Swiss. Yara beautifully transcends borders with Alpine charm, making it a great pick for your little one.

How to meet a girl? A detailed guide with scripts and life hacks — X TRIBE on vc.
How often have you had situations in your life when your gaze intersects with her eyes, some kind of spark ignites inside you and… you miss her. Although you really liked her.
A train of unpleasant emotions remains. Then we think about her, we regret that we didn’t come up.
So why should we deprive ourselves of cool emotions and suffer if people invented seduction a long time ago?!
Acquaintance… Let’s talk about the fear of approach.
But first, let’s understand the mechanics of how this happens and why girls decide to be together with some, and merge others. How does the process of remembering and highlighting a man by a girl take place?
These fundamental things will change your life radically. Read below.
How to get acquainted on the street?
Here comes a very beautiful girl. 6/10 guys get lost right away. And three of these will not be able to impress, they will be embarrassed and will be constrained.
You’re not to blame for this — since childhood, society laid programs in us that we should not invade the personal space of other people and stuff like that. Feelings of guilt and shame are at the core.
But this limits us. Restrictions close a bunch of cool features, experiences and emotions. And do we need it? I think not))
Therefore, first, let’s overcome the fear of approaching:
- Setting in my head: «I won’t lose anything if I approach. And this way I can get a charge and give the girl cool emotions too. You never know she will turn out to be my girlfriend or wife. » — this must be hammered into the head with reinforced concrete. Just remember every time you want to come up.
- Second setting: «Yes, they can reject me. But they will forget about me in 15 minutes. But if they don’t reject me, then we will get cool emotions.» — such a train of thought will reduce responsibility and allow you to be liberated. Remember before approaches.
- The old settings are only overridden by the new ones in practice. Therefore, do 3 approaches (and preferably 5) per day. Just to chat with the girls, to study them closer. Do not even think that you have nothing to communicate with them — you will figure it out along the way.
- There is a cool exercise. For the first time, you can go out with a friend and throw off a significant amount for you if you don’t fit. He will choose a girl, and you will have 10 seconds to approach: approached and talked = saved money.
How to approach?
Girls love emotions. And few of the guys can give her cool emotions. Therefore, I approach as confidently as possible and act arrogantly.
- At first I look with a confident look (not the boring look of a spermotoxic maniac, but confidently) into her eyes and catch a connection — if she looks, smiles or at least feels some spark, then there is a connection. With experience you will go.
- Then, lightly with my head up and as relaxed as possible, I approach the girl, extend my hand and introduce myself: «Hi. I’m Alexander. I liked you. What’s your name?» — I am confident in my desire, I am not shy about my feelings and the girls appreciate it. They love honesty in such a matter.
- Then the girl says her name and holds out her hand to me. According to the canons of the 17th century, I take her hand and kiss it — this is perceived as flirting, a gentlemanly act. Almost no one does that.
- Now we need to cling to something and swing the dialogue. Do not forget to be humorous, because girls like funny guys. «You have nice glasses. Are you a sexologist?» etc.
There are a lot of schemes of approaches. I give many in my Telegram channel, subscribe: https://t.me/alex_xtribe
How to get acquainted in the subway?
The subway is noisy, there are often many people around. The atmosphere, it would seem, is such itself for dating.
But no. There are a couple of life hacks that you can even get acquainted with on the subway.
I’ll tell you from personal experience))
I was riding the subway with a friend. We are standing, as always, we are dying, watching memes. The train starts to slow down, we stagger and almost fall.
The doors open and I see a very beautiful blonde enter. It was immediately clear from her that the girl knew her own worth, there were many boyfriends.
Important: so that no one sits next to her. And if she is sitting, then somehow agree to change places or sit down. If you get to know each other standing, then she will be uncomfortable and stressed that you seem to be hanging from above.
I approached her from the side, introducing myself as always with outstretched hand and a smile. She pulls her hand in response, saying her name, and I kiss my hand — many girls love tactility.
By tactility I mean socially acceptable touches or something along the lines of «accidental» touches.
The noise of the subway played to my advantage — so I was quite legally able to approach her ear and whisper. She was already drawn into my game, marveling at my courage and confidence.
In the context, I asked where she was going and suggested that she go out, take a walk and have coffee somewhere.
But she was on her way to a meeting. Therefore, she asked for my number (yes, she asked for it herself) and offered to meet in the evening after school.
It worked for me. Therefore, I immediately invited her to meet at 20:00 in the Moscow City area. I myself specially appointed the place and time of the meeting, taking the initiative — girls appreciate the initiative.
How it went on or similar reports «from the field» I post in my Telegram channel. Subscribe: https://t.me/alex_xtribe
How to get acquainted in a coffee shop?
It is very easy to get acquainted in a coffee shop or restaurant. There are even two ways to do this.
An important point: there should not be girlfriends or someone else nearby who can distract, insert their 5 kopecks and spoil the acquaintance. At the beginning, it will be difficult for you to take out zealous sharks in the form of girlfriends))
1 way — for tactful:
I sit somewhere near where I can make eye contact with her. I play staring with her until she notices me. Then I look at her with an evaluating look, so that she understands that she is interesting to me.
On the 3rd time, when my eyes meet, I stupidly raise my ass and go boldly sit down next to it.
I would offer her to try my coffee, take a sip from her. The main thing is that it is appropriate, but you yourself will understand whether the girl is happy or not, whether there is contact or not. And there you will gradually become bolder.
2nd way — for the daring:
I take a bun for her or something. I go brazenly to her, sit down and start talking.
That is, I don’t even ask «whether she minds or not that I sit down» — I sit down stupidly.
And at that moment I say: «Well, you don’t mind if I sit down.» And that’s it. I put before the fact.
In general, I rarely recommend asking a girl for permission to do something. Maximum: what flowers she likes. Because girls adore initiative, confident and daring girls — this is a cool range of emotions for them.
I hate to write first — this automatically puts me in a position of need and the girl can twirl as she pleases.
There is a more winning strategy: I packed my profile with cool photos, descriptions, etc. According to my profile, the girl immediately understands that I am beautiful, interesting and live my life brightly.
I like interesting girls (1-2 likes maximum). If I get a mutual like, then the green light is open — she has already made a positive action in my direction.
I hate texting on social media. networks, so I write the following:
Hello, I like you and offer this. I hate communication in social networks, I’m more for live communication, so let’s choose a day when it’s convenient for me and you and schedule a meeting) I have an entertainment program, you have the ability to laugh at my unfunny jokes)
If you are afraid write directly and merge the girl, that is, an alternative option is to just chat with her (SHORTLY), find common topics and then invite.
For example, sometimes I like to pretend not to be local and find out how well she knows the city, whether she is from here or not and all that. And I’m taking you to a meeting with the following message:
Let’s make a bet with you?) I don’t know the city from the word at all [don’t care if you know the city or not, that’s not the point], so I will be your guide and give you a tour)
Don’t care if you don’t know the city. That’s the joke, that you mess up and she will laugh! And laughter is emotions and girls live with emotions)
By the way, I analyze correspondence in my Telegram channel, so subscribe: https://t.me/alex_xtribe
How to get acquainted through Tinder/Badoo/etc.
First of all, I only use Tinder. The rest is some kind of collective farm. But these rules will still apply.
- Profile — there should be a few photos, they should be understandable and without any highlights, effects and other collective farming. Everything in a man’s life is simple and strict, and girls like to take pictures a lot.
- Description — write something not banal to surprise immediately. By the way, I’m a magician, so I wrote: «I work well with my fingers! You don’t think about it, vulgar! I’m a magician and I work with cards)»
Next thing to do is to stupidly like those girls that you like (this is a discovery, right?)))
When mutual likes fall out, I am in no hurry to throw an opener at her — first I look at her profile and come up with a situational tackle .
For example, I look at the sign of the zodiac (if it is indicated) and write: «You are Aquarius, and Sagittarius is ideal for Aquarius, so we are suitable!»
Also, based on her description, you can come up with something else interesting. If it says «I will not go to drink wine with the first person I meet», then write «I will not take you to drink wine, because you are the first person I meet»
After such messages, believe me, they will hook her. After all, this is not just a banality ala «hello, how are you?». She will answer you and continue to correspond with her, as if from above when communicating in social networks.
Always keep intrigue.
I analyze Tinder questionnaires and correspondence in my Telegram channel: https://t.me/alex_xtribe
