Approach anxiety (AA) is a term used to describe a man who feels highly nervous, awkward and distressed during (or even before) the act of approaching and getting to know women he has never met before. While the anxiety often derives from a greater social phobia, approach anxiety itself derives specifically from man's belief that he is very likely to be rejected by the woman of his desire in unplesant and harsh ways.

In most cases, a man who tries to overcome this particular anxiety may experience symptoms such as rapid heart rate, clammy hands and excessive body sweating, thought paralysis (i.e 'going blank' or 'freezing up'), rapid speach, uncharacteristic stuttering, unintentional fidgeting and many other forms of physical or mental reactions to high stress.

To approach and start a conversation with a total stranger, usually with a romantic intention.
John has some huge balls. He just goes up to girls he doesn't know, tells them they are cute, flirts a bit more, and then gets their number.
I wish I could cold approach like that.

A last ditch effort used to pick up women that essentially entails making a series of rapid, low effort, approaches, on multiple women, in a very short period of time.  It is beneficial when the PUA has arrived at the bar or club late in the evening and has little time remaining before last call.  It is risky maneuvre because, due to the lack of effort put into each individual approach, it is likely that the PUA will face several harsh rejections prior to achieving success. Multiple rejections in such a short timeframe could leave the PUA's confidence shattered beyond repair.
Dude #1: "Dude, why the fuck have I seen Andy talking to ten different women in the past five minutes?"
Dude #2: "It's almost last call, and he showed up late, so he's resorted to implementing the Shotgun Approach."
Dude #1: "That's a risky maneuvre bro, I hope he knows what he's doing."
