Gone are the days when men controlled the dating world. Instead, some of the smoothest talkers and biggest scorers in today’s scene are women.
The idea of “picking up” can be absolutely terrifying. From risking rejection to the fear of forgetting your words, putting yourself out there can feel as intimidating as strolling through a pack of hungry wolves wearing a meat suit – you risk being eaten alive.
If you’re looking to get lucky though, here are five tips for picking up men.
1. Look Good
A big part of this happens before you leave the house.
When choosing an outfit, pick one that highlights your best features. For instance, if you have killer legs then a fitted skirt could do the trick, or if you’re a bit self-conscious of your curves then a flowing top or dress with accessories works well. Keep in mind that less is more, so there’s no need to bare all to get his attention.
Also be sure to spot your sexiest lingerie. This doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to be lucky enough to see it, but just knowing what you’re hiding underneath your clothes will make you feel like a fierce vixen.
Once in public, make a point to freshen up before approaching your target. Give your hair a brush, re-apply your lipstick, clean up any smudged eyeliner and straighten your shirt or skirt. An extra dash of perfume doesn’t hurt either.
2. Know Your Target
Depending on the kind of guy you’re after, your attack method will vary. For instance, an outgoing guy will be much more susceptible to obvious flirty banter, whereas a shy guy may find himself speechless or scamper away.
To get an idea of the type of man you’re planning to approach, make note of the role he plays in his social circle. Is he the life of the party, or a docile listener? Does he grasp at the spotlight, or sit patiently and observe.
Also note his body language. Is he expressive with his hands, or does he smile and laugh a lot? Does he look bored, annoyed or as though he doesn’t want to be there?
All of these cues can help you with formulating your approach tactic.
3. Be a Conversationalist
Once you muster up the courage to approach the guy you’re hoping to pick up, it’s important that you have some conversation topics in mind.
Life is full of choices, what are yours.
