Last week we covered the top five worst pickup lines that a man has ever uttered to an unsuspecting woman. This week we will be discussing the top five best lines a man can use. Yes, there are some go-to conversation starters that actually work! Off we go with the top five and why they’re useful.
#1: “What’s the best food/drink item here?”
This is a great line when you are at the bar or ordering food at a restaurant. Everyone loves to share their opinion, and women are no different. If the girl you have your eye on is drinking a dark frosty brew and you happen to like (or even tolerate) a dark frosty brew, ask for her recommendation. This works in a myriad of locales from the grocery store to the coffee shop.
#2: Not exactly a line, but more of a prop. Use your canine friend.
It is cliché for a reason. Most women love dogs and a man who can take care of a furry companion, so use yours to your advantage! Dog parks are a great way to meet women who have the same interests as you. The fact that you are both there with your respective canine companions means you have at least one thing in common. On a side note, don’t use the actual line, “I’ve lost my dog; can you help me find him/her,” especially while leaning out of your car window. Any worthwhile woman has seen that after-school-special and will run. Fast.
#3: “Have you read (fill in the blank)?”
This one works best if the object of your desire is actually carrying a book or in the act of reading one. This line opens up all kinds of conversation options. More than anything she will be thrilled that you know what a book is and can reference an author or title, even if it is Howard Stern’s Private Parts. Note: This line works well with movie rentals as well, although Netflix has all but killed that pickup scene.
#4: “Do you like the red shirt or the blue shirt better?”
If you’re looking to meet women, you’re never more likely to find them than while shopping, and that opens up a prime opportunity to strike up a conversation. It’s as easy as picking up two shirts and asking her opinion. This goes along with number one above in that everyone likes to share their opinion, but takes it up a notch because everyone also likes to be helpful. Give it a try. You never know; maybe you’ll be wearing that shirt on your first date. NOTE: Don’t try this with underwear. Trust me when I say you don’t want her opinion of your tighty whities.
#5: “Excuse-moi, j’ai perdu mon numero de telephone. Est-ce que je peux emprunter le tien?”
Even a poor pickup line sounds enticing in a foreign language, so if all else fails, break out your high school French. (This French phrase translates to: “Excuse me, I lost my phone number. Can I borrow yours?”).
What’s your best pickup line?
