These pick up lines for guys help you break the ice and get through that awkward opening minute when you’re trying to strike up a conversation.
Everyone remembers the pickup line that Joey from the Friends T.V. series used “hey, how you doin’?” Some guys even tried to use that line in real life, to no avail.
So, what do guys really say when they are trying to get a woman’s attention? What works and what doesn’t work? In the case of a pick-up line is the old adage “less is more”? Or, does a longer set-up intrigue the woman they are trying to woo?
What is the anatomy of a pickup line? When trying to “chat up” a woman, does a guy have a standard fallback pick up line? To break the ice in a fascinating and desirable way, the pick-up line should seem genuine and pretty sincere. But a guy could also use the tactic of making a woman laugh and that eases tension.
A guy must choose a pickup plan and commit to it. Here are some pick-up line options from the silly to the outrageous, give one a try, good luck.

Some pick-up lines have established themselves as “classics” in the pick-up world. These lines may or may not work, but they are sure to bring a smile and sure to be at the very least intriguing. It’s good to have several of these lines up your sleeve if you plan to use them so that you are using the same line pick up line over and over. Mix them up, have fun and always deliver the line with a smile.

How To Deliver a Pick Up Line
Communicating an effective pickup line takes confidence. You need to feel good both about the line itself and your approach in communicating it. It helps to say it with a smile. Be confident. Have a plan B if your approach doesn’t work like you thought it would e.g. pin the line on a friend who said it always worked.
The Importance of a Wingman
Pick up lines are all well and good, but don’t underestimate the importance of a “wingman” or woman (sometimes bringing a woman who is a friend of yours increases your credibility.)
The wingman or wing woman acts as a support for a friend who wants to approach potential romantic partners. The wingman or wing-woman can help open conversational doors and assist with creating the right setting to get a conversation started. A wingman might say, “Excuse me, did you know my friend over there is famous? He’s too shy to admit it himself.”
The wingman or wing-woman can help establish a friend as the alpha dog in any given situation. This indicates to the women in the room that he is “top gun” and ready for action. The key is to not overdo it. Just make the friend look good and be set up to be as desirable as possible. A wingman or wing woman is an important sidekick that is invaluable in the right situation.
