Pickup Lines 101

October 27, 2016


Making that first step towards the girl who caught your eye is seldom an easy task. However, there is one thing that can be as useful as it can be devastating for a guy who’s ‘making the move’ – pickup lines.

There is a stereotype surrounding the idea of using pickup lines, and it usually involves the man being not-so-intelligent or not-so-charming. With that in mind, here are a few tricks that will help you utilize the art of pickup lines to your advantage.

Putting A Smile On That Lovely Face

Whether a pickup line works or not depends mostly on you, but also on the situation. Remember this and adapt to every situation, but above all, focus on making the girl smile!

Now, here are a few examples you can use when your target is alone.

You have the “Is this seat taken?” question, which shows that you’re considerate of the girl’s possible company, which in turn shows class.

Likewise, the line “Can I interest you in a glass of (insert beverage here)?” works only if the chick is sitting by herself. Note that the drink in question should fit the surroundings, so if you’re at a fancy even, offer her a glass of fine wine. Get the picture?

Here is a subtle one: “Excuse me, can you help me with…?” Follow this with a specific question, and it’ll work like a charm. Why? Because she’ll be focused on helping you with your problem long enough for you to start working your magic and deepening the conversation. She’ll be tangled in your flirting technique before she knows it.

Finally, we have a special one for you. “Would you like to dance?” We know it sounds a bit cheesy, but with the right moves on the dance floor, you’ll find yourself talking to her about music, art, and quite possibly, where you two should go next. Just make sure you actually have the dance moves, because otherwise you’ll just look like a goof.
