Tips For Delivering Pick-Up Lines

Here are a few tips:

1.) Always think in terms of context. If you’re at a clothing store, using the line, “Do you know what this shirt is made of? Boyfriend material,” works well. It might not work as well in a bar. Take an assessment of your surroundings and the situation to make that first connection.

2.) Be confident. Even if the cheesy pickup line falls flat – and let’s face it, there’s a good chance of that – it’s how you react to the situation that might determine your impression. Roll with the punches, and don’t be afraid to laugh at yourself.

3.) Smile! A friendly approach works best.

4.) Remember, you’re just trying to break the ice. If the line meets resistance, move on to another conversation approach quickly. Know when to cut bait!

Putting Your Pick-Up Plan In Place

Now that you’ve read these clever pickup lines, what do you do next? Go out and give them a try!

Pick a handful of your favorites and commit them to memory. The next time you’re in line at the grocery store or picking up your morning coffee, you’ll be armed with the perfect line for dropping on the unknowing object of your affection.

Choose a pickup line that matches your personality. It will come off as genuine and sincere that way. Timing and context are everything. Don’t be too eager to spit out a clever line. Watch and wait. When the time is right, you’ll know.

Best Pick Up Line Ever

University College London (UCL) researched hundreds of pick-up lines to determine the most effective choice. Guess what they found to be the best for both men and women? “Hello, how are you?”

Why does it work?

It’s not too prying, which makes it easy to answer. Folks are familiar with the question. And, importantly, it shows that you’re interested in the other person’s thoughts.

Whatever you choose to use, deliver your line with a smile and a wink. Now, the opportunity for a conversation begins. You’ve opened the door to new possibilities. Good luck!
