I want to share some foolproof pick-up lines that will help you break the ice with any girl. I’m going to ask you to forget those god awful lines like,
“did it hurt?”
“Did what hurt?”
“When you fell from heaven?”
Ahhhhhh Move along! This line actually does not work! It’s so old and outdated I think it was funny in the early 2000’s, but now it turns women off, instantly.
There are thousands of pick-up lines out there, but that doesn’t mean they should be used.
Before I give you the goods, remember that the purpose of a pick-up line is to open conversation. It’s how you’re making your first impression. The purpose is not to offend a woman or to make your buddies laugh. Pick-up lines are meant to break the ice, which will allow you to segue into a fun and flirty conversation with a woman.
While you can pick up a woman without saying a word, lines like these will help smooth things out and improve your chances.
My first piece of advice in actually using these pick-up lines is that you want to show confidence, so be direct in how you approach her. Don’t walk up to her timidly. Approach her with purpose, head high, shoulders back.
Pick-up Line #1
Okay, the first one I have for you is a more adventurous one. It basically suggests that you walk up to a woman and ask her, “Truth or dare?” This also requires you to do a little background work before. You need to have a truth and a dare prepared before you even approach her. You don’t want to be standing in front of her shocked that she answered you by saying, “Ummmmm… one sec.”
For example, if she says dare, you could say, “I dare you to let me buy you a drink!” An example for truth could be, “If there was no such thing as money, what would you do with your life?” Or something along those lines. This pick-up line does two things. It can reveal someone’s adventurous side if they lean towards a dare, but it can also help you break the ice even faster by asking her an interesting question. Whichever one she goes for will tell you something about her personality and help you get to know her that much faster.
Pick-up Line #2
I surveyed a handful of clients to give me honest feedback on their most successful pickup lines, and this next one is one of them. This is like that fall back one, and it’s super easy to remember. This one requires you to go up to a girl that you’ve never met and say a random girl’s name. For example, you could say, “Hey, Sophie!” She will most likely respond with an “I’m not Sophie…” And you then say, “Oh no! I’m so sorry, but you look just like my friend Sophie.” And then this would be a good time to introduce yourself.
This one is tricky because it is all about the execution. If you aren’t feeling confident in your acting abilities, then I would suggest using another one, but if you are up for the challenge and can keep this ball rolling, then I suggest you try it. But make sure to be sincere in your apology. With the wrong execution, some women might get offended. But then, again, she might just not be in a flirting mood, and you’d be better off moving on to someone else.
Pick-up Line #3
This next line is for those students out there who are looking to break the ice with a cute classmate. This also works in any situation where you are seated. This one goes that if there is an empty seat by a girl you want to approach, simply ask her, “Is this seat taken?” If she says no, then sit down and strike up a conversation. Start by introducing yourself. And find out her name.
Avoid topics on the weather and the political climate, unless you have a superb joke. Try and engage with her by talking about something in the surrounding environment. If it’s a class, you could ask her about the professor, or recount a funny story that happened in class. Basically, you just need proximity and reason to strike up a conversation and then you can go from there.
One thing to keep in mind when you’re using these pickup lines is that the goal is to strike up conversation, not to get her to commit to you for life. So don’t get too attached to one girl, or one topic or she could lose interest. Don’t be afraid to switch up the conversation.
Pick-up Line #4
Another kind of cheeky line to get someone’s attention is to tell them that they look like a famous person. Say, “You look like (insert famous person here).” This is intended to be a compliment, so wrack your brain for an attractive celebrity that she looks like or famous person who has done some good. I guarantee you that she will take this as a compliment, if it is executed correctly.
I was approached by a drunk man in a bar who came stumbling at me saying, “You look like that dead chick!” I was like, “I beg your pardon?” He responded with, “You know that dead chick!” and I was still at a loss. After I finally brushed him off, he approached me again to say that I looked like Brittany Murphy. Now, I get what this guy was trying to accomplish, but he executed it poorly. Don’t do this!
Pick-up Line #5
If you are feeling flirty and cheeky, which I hope you are when you are using these pickup lines, here is one that is specific to tattoos. If a girl has a noticeable tattoo, you could go up to her and say, “OMG! I was going to get that exact same tattoo!” Even if you weren’t, it is a cheeky way to break the ice and, hopefully, spark some conversation between the two of you. It works even better if it’s a particularly girly tattoo as this is funny and will make you instantly appear confident.
Pick-up Line #6
If you don’t want to go down the funny cheesy route, don’t worry, because there are other options. For example, you can be genuine and engaging through a confident introduction of yourself and making strong eye contact with her. You don’t always need something funny or cheesy, but if you can convey a genuine interest in her through just saying, “Hi, how are you?” most of the time, you will be met with a response.
Pick-up Line #7
And if you really want to catch a girl off guard, you could approach her with a more intense line. And it goes like this, “I’m sorry, but I couldn’t leave here tonight not having introduced myself.” “I’d like to buy you a drink and get to know you.” This one is quite forward, especially with no lead up. But, and that is a big but, if you are feeling confident in yourself and the situation is right, then I’d say go for it. The worst thing she is going to say is no.
The thing about assessing the situation is I would hold off on this one if she is extremely enthralled in her current situation having a good time with her friends. But if she seems to be alone and or looking around, she would probably welcome your advance. But, by now, you have plenty of pickup lines to go through to find the right one for different situations.
Pick-up Line #8
Okay, my last and final pickup line, one that I believe has worked the best, one that is by far the easiest to remember, is to approach a woman with confidence while showing a genuine interest in her. Being genuine and interested in someone goes a long way. That said, you could go up to someone the bold way, and depending on where you meet them and what your thing is, you could just say, “Hey, I noticed you, and I’d love to get to know you more over a cup of coffee or a drink. Here’s my number.” Or, if she obliges, then you could continue the conversation right off the bat. If so, ask her questions about herself.
It is human nature for us to want to talk about ourselves, so let her. By showing interest in her, not only will you learn more about her, but she will also find your interest in her an attractive quality.
Women aren’t riddles. I know we like to come across that way. But, in reality, we want to meet people who are genuine and show an interest in us.
So get out there, have a laugh, and hopefully get a date!
