You have gone through it 50 times in your head. You have received the pat on the back from your friends. You have crossed the room. You have her attention.
You have no idea what to say
Palms sweating, you stutter out some sort of pathetically awkward greeting. Though she is politely smiling back, you can tell by the look in her eyes that she is not impressed. You want to run — far away and then hide in a hole. What a disaster.
I think most guys would agree that making the first move can be scary business. People tell you it's all about the approach. They advise you to play it cool, but not too cool; act interested, but not too interested. Smile, act confident and watch the tone of your voice. But what on earth should you say?
"I'm invisible." (Uh … no you're not.) "Can you see me?" (Yes) "How about tomorrow night?"
"Hi, I just wanted to give you the satisfaction of turning me down; go ahead — say no."
"If I were to ask you out on a date, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?"
(Note: It will probably take her a minute to realize the perfection of this pick up line.)
The next time you find yourself heading toward a pick up disaster, pull one of these lines out of your sleeve and see what happens! You could get that smile that melts your heart or even score a date. With the right line and the right delivery, you can't fail!
