5 Things to Say When Approaching a Woman According To Yahoo.

This topic is locked from further discussion.

1. She has a great dog, so you pet the dog and ask, "What's your dog's name?" Obviously she will tell you, to which you can comment on how sweet the dog is and the conversation should naturally unfold.

2. You're in a café and she has a newspaper. You can ask, "Do you mind if I read that section when you're done?" When she gives it to you, ask, "Anything exciting I should read first?"

3. On an airplane, ask to borrow a pen. If you're feeling really courageous, once you've got her pen, shake her hand and say very seriously, "Nice to meet you, I'm ranked #2 among America's Most Wanted Pen Thieves. Ever seen it?" Sure it's kinda cheesy, but it's also the kind of off-the-wall thing women love.

4. At a diner, ask her if you can borrow the salt from her table. When she gives it to you, say, "Thanks, I saw you eyeballing it so I thought I'd help out by removing the temptation for you. Salt is very bad for you, ya know," as you proceed to douse your own food with it -- another one that's sure to get some laughs.

5. In a bank line, you can even use the lack of customer service on the part of the tellers as a prop. Why? Because it gives you something to talk about -- that's exactly what props are for.

 

What do you think about these 5 things to say?  Do you think they would actually work?  Personally, I think they are all lame/cheesy and if I was the woman, I would get a bad impression on the guy.

"Hi, my name is ______ can you help me with a rash I have in my groin. Then we can do to dinner afterwards." That works every time!:D
#8 Posted by torontogamer (194 posts) -

those are so lame, its like the movies. just go say hey to them, if they like you they'll chuckle or if they don't chuckle they'll probably go something like this: "hi o.o.... well i gotta go over there *ahem* excuse me".

Does that actually work these days?  It seems so generic and up-front.

I believe that women on more interested in a man's confidence in approaching them... not their ability to form witty remarks. ;)

Those sound...really lame.

If I used one, I'd probably be laughed at by the girl. Then she'd call all their friends and they'd laugh too.

Except when you say number 3 to her, and she reads yahoo, you're pretty much screwed.

Until just now, I always thought you were a guy simply because you used to have that pic of the guy (I think from one of the Resident Evil's) in your sig and avi. I think of people as their avi's or sigs.. :lol:

Speaking of Resident Evil, that is the series of games where I would actually expect characters to use lines like that. (With the exception of RE4).

Meh....there okay, but i've seen worst pick up lines like the one my friend used. He just started walking up to random women and asking them: "Are you from tennessee, cuase your the only ten that i see." Thats probably the worst one ever....it was good for laughs though....

Man, bad pickup lines are hilarious.  My personal favorite:

Woman: Excuse me, do you have the time?

Man: Sure thing.  Do you have the energy?

Yeah, imagine the combined expertise on dating that you could find on a videogame-oriented internet discussion board!  It's a foolproof plan!
#46 Posted by The_PirateKing (9714 posts) -
~-~That's good advice. If I say that to a girl and she laughs then she isn't my type. There can never be any good pickup lines cuz it all depends on what you want them to want. If the girl says, "Oh go **** off Mr. Sunshine," as a response to those then she's my kind of girl.;)~-~

Are you insinuating that video gamer don't have "skills"? That's it... *Puts up his fists*

#48 Posted by Montaya (4269 posts) -
My observation is that if you cannot think of any of your own ways to start convo with the ladies then dont waste their time and use silly picup lines from the internet unless you plan to read silly pickup and convo fuel off the internet your whole life to fuel the relationship interest.
#49 Posted by Articuno76 (19005 posts) -

1,2 and 3 aren't particularly creepy (depening on the context of the approach), but 2 relies too much on the co-operation of a 3rd party, some people simply won't play along.
