Pickup is an art, not a science, so have fun with it. It’s the height of spring, and this isn’t about pressure. If there is a science to it, I promise you no rockets are involved (even when you shoot her your Fourth of July line). One example of how to do this is to approach a babe in a humorous manner, but flirt with her as if it’s the second time you’ve met, not the first. Keep the body language loose, smile, and sexily tease her about the late trains or the great weather, or the magazine section she’s in. In your tone, imagine saying this to someone you already know, but just barely (you’re relaxed, yet mysterious).
Another thing I do is rather than focus on meeting the babe or what I’m gonna say, I just say whatever the situation or surroundings call for. Today I saw a nurse running to catch a nearby bus. From behind me, when I turned a bit, she said “I’m catching up with you.
I took the bait and said, “You’re running for the bus”. She giggled.
“And you’re pretty, too,” Another giggle.
In another circumstances, the deejay, the bartender, my friends, any topic I felt legitimately present was invoked to break the ice. No one’s gonna get killed, you’re out having fun, shopping, or taking a walk. Beautiful women will notice your cool manner, and things will take off from there. If you develop enough rapport (e.g. she’s laughing, trading barbs) then to ask for the digits, do so. But keep the mood light as babes like it, not tense.
