Twenty women reveal the pick-up lines that actually worked on them.
Approaching a beautiful woman is one of the most intimidating things a man can do. That’s probably why so many guys do verbal cartwheels trying to come up with opening lines that simultaneously display wit, charm, and flattery.
But here’s a little secret: You don’t have to work that hard. We asked real women to share the conversation starters that worked on them, and you may be surprised at their answers. Some of the openers were cheeky, some were simple, and many weren’t even “lines” at all. Read more
If you’ve ever stammered out a weak reply to a lame pick-up line, Ericka Souter gives you the perfect comebacks to eleven of the most annoying.
Sometimes it doesn’t matter what a woman accomplishes. Some men will always see her as a “skirt” first and a CEO second. Case in point: Yahoo head Marissa Mayer. At a recent stockholders meeting, a man stood up presumably just to ask about his stock dividend. Instead, he shared something quite unexpected:
I’m George Polis. I have 2,000 shares of Yahoo. I’m Greek, and I’m a dirty old man, and you look attractive, Marissa.
Why in the world would he think this was an appropriate thing to do? Mayer’s response? She didn’t. She just moved on, which was the right thing to do in this instance. But what are other smart, savvy, successful women to do when they encounter rude and ridiculous come-ons? You don’t have to wonder any longer. The Stir has compiled the ideal guide of comebacks for the most annoying pickup lines. Read more

NewsMutiny provides today’s insane gentlemen with twelve tips for scoring with women. I think I’ve met some of the insane gentlemen this article is aimed at, so I just hope they always remember the last tip.
- Offering to buy a woman a drink in a bar is a good first step towards scoring. If she says she’s not thirsty or simply doesn’t drink, try offering her the five bucks you were going to spend on the beverage to come back to your place.
- Most women want to be pursued, so if they run away, by all means go after them. Regardless of what they might scream at you, to others to petition their assistance, or throw in your path to impede your chase, rest assured you are scoring big points by fulfilling a deep-seated subconscious desire.
- Practice makes perfect. Gluing a picture of the object of your desire’s face over an inflatable sex doll will allow you to practice your kissing and intercourse technique so you’ll be sure to impress her when it’s time for the real thing. Read more
