Pick Up Lines That Work - How To Start A Conversation

Feb 15, 2008
Pick up lines have a very bad reputation.

For example how often have you heard bad pick up lines such as:

"Nice shoes. Wanna bang?"

"Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?"

"I lost my number, can I have yours?"

Let's face it - if you use lines like these on a girl, she's not going to give you the time of day.

But because the bad pick up lines get so much attention, people think ALL pick up lines are like this.

And this just isn't true.

A good pick up line will actually do what it says - help you pick up a girl!

Understand: The whole point of using a pick up line is to get a conversation started.


After the woman begins talking with you, then you work your magic of getting her to date you, her telephone number and the emotional connection.

Remember, if you do not begin a conversation, you cannot do much more.

You not only talk to a woman, you engage her, by drawing her into a conversation, and this is the only means to continuing with your goal.

Good pick up lines help you do this.

When I first started going out to meet women, I was always at a loss of what to say to first meet a girl. I was always trying to think of something to say off the top of my head, and more often than not, I'd miss my opportunity to meet a great girl because it took me too long to think something up.

That is why it's important to know one or two good pick up lines that actually WORK. Because for those situations where you can't be original, you need something to help you take action!

Never, consider that you can slide by with a line such as:

"Don't I know you from somewhere?"

This is a lame pick up line, and all women know it, you might think yourself clever, but they will not.

Also, doing things like asking for directions, telling a girl she looks like a certain celebrity, and complimenting her on a piece of clothing are BAD ways to pick a girl up.

Why is this?

These lines do not engage the woman, since once she answers you; the conversation has nowhere to go.

Bad pick up lines have yes and no answers. Good pick up lines get a woman to thinking about her response, while encouraging an emotional reaction from her, this causes her to want to continue talking with you.

How can you engage a woman in conversation with you?

Easy, ask her opinion about some issue, since each woman has her own opinion, she likes to share with other, especially when it concerns relationships.

Here is an example. Say to her, Can I get your opinion on something, please. Do you think it is strange for a woman to try to get pregnant at certain times so her child is born under a particular astrological sign? I would really be interested in a womans opinion of this.

Then you can follow up with a story about how you know a woman who wants to make sure her kid's zodiac signs are compatible with hers so they will be well behavied as they grow up.

This can lead to various other topics of conversation, such as:

1. Children 2. Marriage 3. Astrology 4. Pregnancy 5. Relationships

The number of ways you can go with this are endless. Some of my favorite follow ups are:

"Are you a believer in astrology?" (This can begin conversations about destiny and fate.)

"What is your zodiac sign?" (This can lead to talking about your sign compatibility - as a general rule, no matter what your sign is - you are compatible!)

"What do you think of children? You seem like the mothering type."

I could go on and on, but you get the idea.

So as you can see, this pick up line is designed to pull the girl into a deep and interesting conversation, and gives you the opportunity to get to know her better and allow her to become familiar with you.

This is how conversations are started!

Once you reach this point, ask for her telephone number and set up your first date.
