Since the dawn of time, we men have been doing anything and everything to convince women to go home with us. Whether that home is a cave or a castle, the aim remains the same: To make that special lady across the bar look past our shortcomings, throw caution to the wind, and take a swing with a stranger.
So here we are in 2015 with thousands of years of glorious triumphs under our collective evolutionary belt — so I think it’s fair to say we’ve got it all figured out. We can finally, definitively say that we have developed a foolproof process for all men to use while picking up women.
1. Get Her Attention
Once you’ve spotted the lady you desire, make sure she knows what you’re about. Start with fleeting glances from across the room — nothing too blatant, of course. When you see her look your way, you’re in. Maybe give her a wink or raise your eyebrows, as if to say “You like what you see?”
Once you have her attention, don’t break eye contact. Why do you think you used to have staring contests as a little kid? It’s an age-old courting ritual passed down from generation to generation. It’s probably the last thing your parents did before getting down to business and bringing you into the world.
2. Move On In
Now’s the time to put yourself in a position to make a move. Bust out your best cool-guy walk — that strut you save for special occasions, like when you’re rolling deep with your 10 best bros and you just know there’s no one else out on the town remotely as studly. Once you get to her, sidle on in and insert yourself almost uncomfortably close so there’s no mistaking your intention.
3. Use A Winning Opening Line
Saying something memorable to a woman when you first meet is the only way to keep her interested. That’s why you need to practice in front of a mirror for several hours a day before you hit the town.
Even better, record your practice just like an athlete so you can review the film and hone your technique. Added plus: If you really nail it, you can just play your best line back to her on your phone right there at the bar. Don’t work hard — work smart.
4. Body Language: Use It
You’re a man, right? You’re the man, right? Make that clear. Doesn’t matter if you’re holding a drink or if you’re hemmed in by a crowd — use your ultra-masculine body to catch her attention. After all, that’s all she’s checking out anyway. Expressive hand motions are essential, especially if they result in some ‘inadvertent’ flexing.
5. Pay Attention To Her
You know, by staring at her and grunting and nodding at everything she says while you’re actually contemplating whether shifting your focus to that brunette to your left would be the better play.
6. Play To Your Strengths
Do you actually have a few qualities that separate you from that schlub wearing the blazer and distressed denim combo eyeing your girl? Force them into the conversation as quickly as possible. You might have to cut her off about how she’s “going through a bit of a rough patch right now,” but she NEEDS to hear about your groundbreaking, genre-defining screenplay idea.
7. Be A Provider
If you haven’t already, the time has come to buy her a drink. If that’s how you started, now’s the time to buy another. Show her that you can take care of her — men are providers, after all. She’ll appreciate it deep down, no matter how many times she tries to tell you that she can handle her own tab. That’s cute, but that’s not how this works.
8. ABC: Always Be Closing
The moment of truth: it’s time to see if she’s picking up what you’ve been putting down. She’s put up with you for this long, so she’s probably as desperate as you are — after all, that’s really the age-old secret behind this method: Women want it as much as we do.
Just to be safe, you should seal the deal with the perfect closing line. There’s only one requirement: Use some type of euphemism for sex and mention the bedroom. Explicitly.
