There are battle hardened soldiers who find it hard to drum up enough courage to approach a foxy lady. It’s not an easy thing to do, and no matter what a guy looks like, it’s similar to Russian roulette. What’s the deal? If only there were magic words a man could speak and everything would go swimmingly. There isn’t nor will there ever be.
However, there are entire encyclopedias of things a guy shouldn’t say; the dreaded pick up lines. These may sound funny, and if a girl used them on a guy, it would probably work! Guys, stay away from these, and then once you’re done laughing, the correct thing to say (in general) will be explained in brief.
“Does this smell like chloroform to you?”
No! Just, no…Don’t stick your hand out, and even if she laughs, she’s probably frightened by your lack of creativity.
“Wow, those are stunning legs. What time do they open?”
Creepy! Maybe one out of ten thousand females would be turned on by this random comment from a stranger. 90% of those women are having a really bad night, and by the time she’s drunk enough to go the distance, she’ll be bordering on alcohol poisoning.
“How are you not panting? You’ve been running through my head all night!”
Ok maybe if she’s really into fitness…but no. Why pray tell? Because it’s the God awful epitome of cliché that’s why. Imagine the moment of awkward silence after these two tragic sentences have been spoken aloud. It’s spine tingling.
“You’re in luck! Out of all the fine ladies in here tonight, I picked you.”
“Hi, sorry to bother you, but, I lost my phone number. Do you mind if I have yours?”
Envision a women sighing with this pitiful empathetic look on her face just before she coldly turns her shoulder.
“Whoa, wait a minute. Do you believe in love at first sight?”
No probably not, and all you just did was bring up her ex or current boyfriend. Brilliant!
“Oh my God, I feel like we’ve met before. Do I know you?”
This can go either way really, but because it’s so cliché most women won’t really know if you’re being serious or not. Unless she’s super lonely, she’ll see right through you.
“Your name isn’t Gillette by chance is it? Because you’re obviously the best any man could get.”
“Well hey there! You come her often?”
Just leave it out, have another round of liquid courage, and think of something else.
“Ok seriously, are you an actress? I love pretending to be a necrophiliac; want to play dead?”
She’s probably scared now, and if she’s all excited and turned on, you have a problem on your hands.
Ok Smarty Pants…What’s The Best Pickup Line?
Seriously, just walk up like you have nothing to lose, and nothing to be ashamed of and say this.
“Hi.” And then smile sincerely. That right there is all it takes, a little bit of genuine interest (not perverted interest, at least not overtly) and a smile. In summary: “Hi.” + smile = best chances.
