There is a rather amusing site, run by a semi-ignoramus, who gets his fame and fortune by listing pick-up lines to use on girls.
He mentioned one ridiculous one about how you should say (here I paraphrase), "I didn't know Santa Claus existed, but here you are." That's horrible.
I laughed. It reminded me of some famous lines: "Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?" or a variant: "Heaven must be missing an angel, because here you are down here." Those are terrible.
When I was a kid there were advertisements in the back of magazines, "How to Pick Up Girls" and "How to Talk to Girls." Even at 11 or 12, I was thinking, "What the hell?"
The same thing exists today, only it's online.
When I was in college (perhaps 21) my girlfriend, I, and a friend and another girl were sitting in a room. The girl asked me what pickup lines I would use. I told her I didn't use pickup lines, but if I did I would say to her, "I looked at you and had a spontaneous physical reaction." She got a big grin and said, "Now that would work."
Not babbling some nonsense about Santa Claus and angels.
Again, in college I was in the library with a friend when some guy walked up to girl and asked "What's the story, morning glory?" My friend asked, "Are you serious?" to which the guy answered defensively,"It's the only way I know to talk to the chicks." Perhaps he should have ordered one of those books.
I have few very talents. One is that I happen to be funny. It appears to be natural. I could have been a standup comedian except I'm too lazy. As Sam Kinnison once said, "If you don't have talent or preparation for whatever you want to do, you will not be successful in anything."
But I do know this: if you don't have natural talent you're just going to make a fool out of yourself.
I was sitting in a coffee shop with a woman I know when my head turned of its own volition and I found a girl about 21 looking at me. I leaned forward and said in a conspiratorial tone, "Don't worry, women always look at me, but that was 25 years ago." She looked flustered and smiled.
The woman I was with said, "Are you flirting with her?" No, I answered, I'm just using my indiscriminate charm.
Or the woman next door whom I told, "When women get involved with me their lives get better."
She laughed and said, "God, you're arrogant."
"No," I told her, "just confident and funny."
If you want to memorize cheesy "negs" and use them on attractive women, I encourage you to do so. I enjoy seeing these guys get looks like they're a centipede crawling up a woman's arm. Perhaps you might want to try it at the local Starbucks!
Spontaneously is how you do it. Not programmed.
