Hola! Yesterday I wrote a blog on undergarments and when it’s appropriate to wear them for function versus appeal… well, sorta. You can read about it here.
In said post, I made mention of a guy that threw in an insult, followed it with a compliment (albeit an inappropriate one), then seemed shocked when his master plan of getting laid didn’t work out.
Three quick tips for the single men out there:
- When trying to pick up a lady, check out her ring finger. If there is a ring on that finger, don’t expect much more than friendly banter. Sadly this is not always the case, but your potential dating/ hooking up percentages go up significantly when trying to pick up a single lady versus an obviously non single lady at a bar. That way you can move on and not waste anyone’s time (including your own).
- Throwing insults and/or making mention of any body part that would normally be covered by a bikini is not a good idea. The lady will look at you with disgust and treat you accordingly. This can range from walking away, throwing a drink in your face, emasculating you verbally, or if you’re really out of line, some sort of physical assault to your groin area.
- (Appropriate) compliments are always a good thing.
If you’re semi-good looking, confident, and have no overt flaws, there is no doubt in my mind you will hook up with someone in a place where they serve alcohol, no matter what comes out of your mouth. But keep in mind, it will be just that…a hook up.
Probably a drunk hook up with an insecure girl who will make it her nights mission proving just how attractive she is to you. This will not be a long term relationship type of girl. Not the girl you can take home to mom. And definitely not the minimal baggage type of girl either.
I want to be very clear, I am not talking about one night stands, cause let’s be honest, everyone I know over 18 has had at least one (no matter how classy they turn out to be). I’m talking about girls that can take a stranger’s insults and turn them into some sort of challenge. It’s sad because relationship cycles like this perpetuate their insecurities (anywho, that’s for a more serious blog).
What’s my point? If you want to hook up with hot, not so hot insecure girls, by all means… go for it. But if you’re looking for a girl with a little more to her, follow the 3 tips above.
Random online dating tip (or first date tip):
- Guys should always pay for the first date…yes, I said always. But girls should always offer and say thank you (after the guy rejects their offer).
For the cheapies out there, think of it as an investment in your future. This is the first date. Try to court a little, even if you don’t like her enough for a second date.
You never know if she has a hot friend she can refer you to. Last thing you want is to be known as the cheap guy to all her friends on cyberspace.
What are some pick up techniques you follow? Do they work? Is a simple introduction over-rated? Who pays on a first date?
Would love to hear from you!
