The purpose of a pickup line is to fulfill two goals: fascinate the target, and commence the conversation. It should pique the curiosity of the individual you’re interested in, and that curiosity ought to be returned in kind.

That will bring up other topics for discussion. But what is successful, and what isn’t? The use of pickup lines for women is effective. But not all the time.

According to some research, the lines that stress a man’s athleticism, cultural knowledge, affluence, and kindness are the most likely to be successful in leading to additional dialogue.

This is in contrast to the ones that were either overtly sexual or featured meaningless compliments.

Type of approach

What about the ladies’ approaches? Do they function as well? An online investigation compared the effectiveness of three types of pickup lines commonly used by women: innocuous, direct, and flippant.

According to some findings, the most effective strategy is one that is straightforward. The most unpopular choice was the use of innocuous lines.

However, men responded to any kind of pickup line that came from a woman they found beautiful, regardless of the form it took. The findings shifted to the women who were rated as being less attractive.

It seems that the most successful pickup lines for women were humorous.

Proximity helps

girl to guy proximity

There are a lot of men who don’t believe they can talk to you because they are afraid of being rejected. This can be for many reasons.

He may not know what to say. Maybe he’s intimidated by how attractive you are. Or maybe he just doesn’t feel confident enough to interrupt your night to get to know you.

Reduce his anxiety of being turned down by simply standing closer to him.

You need to break the ice

Break the ice? You might be wondering how. What’s the funniest way to shatter the ice? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.

  • Ask them a question. Something nice yet intriguing, though not really sexual in nature.
  • Make a remark about something you noticed. Shoes are a good place to start. It comes off quite smooth but does need some conscious effort to respond to.
  • Be straightforward. Pickup artists would suggest asking him a question that has a slightly high risk but has the potential to capture his interest.
  • To guarantee that he realizes that you are not simply making a random request of him, you should make it fun. For example, rather than asking, “Would you mind if I took this seat?” you could say, “What would you do if I took this seat without asking?”
  • Include your own thoughts and feelings on topics to provide him with a solid platform from which to continue the conversation. For example, avoid asking, “Can you hand me the drinks menu?” Rather say, “I’d ask you to pass me the drinks menu, but I’ll probably just order a GnT, as usual. I guess I just like looking…”

Make use of these seemingly innocuous statements.

  • “Pardon me, but I really had to comment…”
  • “I really enjoy how…”
  • “I appreciate how…” is an opener for a conversation that is both somewhat “safe” and relatively “sexy.” Plus, you get to decide how intense you want it to be.

Just say “Hello”

It’s a little ironic that simply saying “Hi” to someone is probably seen as the most “out there” fascinating approach to starting a conversation.

You might try making it more enigmatic by saying something like, “Hey (sexy pause),” and then give him a slow and seductive look up and down as you do so. It’s impossible to hide the fact that you did this intentionally.

just say hello

You are making an effort to flirt with him right now. You are not being dishonest in the way that you talk. You have merely brought about a full about-face in the issue.

There is no clear path to take when beginning a conversation with another person, but the payout might be enormous despite the high risks.

So how do you go about conceiving a conversation opener that would ultimately prove to be fruitful?

Using funny pickup lines

Trying too hard to be humorous is a strategy that can backfire spectacularly. If you’re concerned about it, give yourself some backup plans to feel more confident.

You might try various things to start a conversation, such as asking how he knows the host of the party or what he has been doing recently if you are at his party. Improvise. Explore your surroundings to get ideas.

However, when done right, adding humor can work. Just try your best to make it feel natural. By using a one or two-liner that’s hilarious, you’ll catch his attention in the right way.

This is where you stop, though. Don’t try to keep a joke going after it’s finished. Once you have his interest, proceed to initiate a regular conversation.
