A lot of guys wonder whether pickup lines can really work on girls. When you imagine a guy using pick up lines, you probably picture some greasy wanna-be Casanova, his shirt unbuttoned to reveal a gold chain and a furry chest. He’s prowling a bar or nightclub, his beady eyes scanning the room for his next target.
He approaches a woman…looks her up and down, like a hungry wolf eyeballing a slab of meat…and delivers a crude pick up line that causes her to roll her eyes (or throw her drink in his face).
I’m referring to pick up lines like these…
“You’d better know CPR, baby, because you take my breath away.”
“Can I borrow a quarter? [What for?] I want to call my mom and tell her I just met the woman of my dreams.”
“Hey, can I borrow a map? I keep on getting lost in your eyes.”
“Somebody better call God, cuz he’s missing an angel — so what time do you have to be back in heaven?”
“Sorry lady, but you owe me a drink. [Why?] Because when I looked at you, I dropped mine.”
“I’m new in town — could you give me directions to your apartment?”
“If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together.”
“If I followed you home, would you keep me?”
“Is there an airport nearby or is that just my heart taking off?”
“Was your father an alien? Because there’s nothing else like you on Earth!”
You actually CAN use a funny pick up line to approach women, and not all of them are that lame. Here are a few that women may actually find charming or flattering — IF you follow them up correctly (which I’ll explain how to do in a moment).
“Would you touch me so I can tell my friends I’ve been touched by an angel?”
“Do you know karate? Because your body is really kickin’.”
“Your daddy must have been a baker, because you’ve got a nice set of buns.”
“If a thousand painters worked for a thousand years, they could not create a work of art as beautiful as you.”
(Note: Don’t use this pick up line on women who are extremely hot and KNOW it. This one is effective on a girl who is attractive, but is clearly NOT the best-looking girl in the place.)
Now here’s the next type of pick up lines. You can call these ones…
Pick Up Lines That Could Get You Slapped In The Face
You’ll want to be extremely cautious when using the following lines when you approach women. A woman with a sense of humor might find them amusing, but you also run the risk of getting hit or having a martini tossed in your face. (Especially if her boyfriend the UFC fighter happens to be standing nearby.) Like I said, be careful…
“Do you know what has 142 teeth and holds back the Incredible Hulk? [What?] My zipper.”
“Your daddy must play the trumpet, because he sure made me horny!”
“That’s a nice set of legs, what time do they open?”
The Truth About Pick Up Lines
But are all pick up lines only good for a laugh? Do successful pickup artists ever use them to approach women and start conversations? I’ve written several popular books on how to pick up women, which teach many different resourceful approaches to starting conversations with girls. I personally feel that if you’re learning how to approach women, using pick up lines is NOT the way to go.
I teach a style of approaching women that I refer to as “going under the radar”. What this basically means is that you say (or ask) something clever when you approach women — a comment or question that catches her by surprise and engages her attention, without signalling your sexual interest. Essentially, you’re “breaking the ice” in a way that feels natural and casual.
I like to approach the girl and ask her a clever question, one that females are naturally going to have an opinion about.
Opener #1: “Quick question — would you allow your boyfriend to go to a bachelor party if you knew there were going to be strippers there? My friend Samantha asked me for my opinion.”
Opener #2: “Hey, help me settle a debate I’m having with my friends. How long do you need to be dating someone before you change your status on Facebook from “single” to “in a relationship?” Because my friend Jennifer has been going out with a guy for a month and SHE thinks it’s an exclusive thing, but he hasn’t changed his “single” status and she’s wondering if she should say something…”
These methods of approaching women are especially effective because they’re based on what I call “relationship grey areas.” Men and women tend to have their own ideas about what’s allowed in a relationship, and what is unacceptable. Another example: is it “cheating” if a guy hangs out with his ex-girlfriend socially, without telling his current girlfriend?
When you approach a woman, your goal with the opening line is to get a positive response that makes her want to talk to you further. Here’s another line I use to approach women, which always seems to get a good reaction:
“Do I look gay? Because this guy was TOTALLY flirting with me in the men’s room a second ago. Be honest, is it my shirt?” (Or, “is it the way my butt looks in these jeans?”)
Those don’t count as “pick up lines,” really. But does this mean pick up lines are, by definition, a bad thing?
I’ve actually used some of the pick up lines I mentioned above, and they led to a conversation and a successful result (either I got her phone number and saw her again, or slept with her that night).
It was because I poked fun at the fact that I had USED a pick up line! After I said it, I followed up with “I know that TOTALLY sounded like a pick up line…but I want to talk to you for a moment and I couldn’t think of what else to say. My name’s Dean…”
Then from that point, I used my usual methods — I asked a few “strategic” questions to get her in a fun mindset, and sharing information about herself…I used techniques like “Cold Reads” and “Hypotheticals”…and at all times, I stayed in control of the interaction and guided it down the correct path.
The truth is, you can get away with using a super-cheesy pick up line and actually make women laugh (in a good way). The trick is knowing how to follow it up with something clever that makes her want to talk to you.
Or, you can always use this:
“You’re so beautiful that you totally made me forget my pickup line.”
You can’t put a price tag on a line like that!
