Great Moments in Female Pickup History

by GK on October 3, 2010 · 5 comments

As I mentioned in my last post, I do wish I’d gotten around to coaching women on flirting. But it’s nice to know that a girl I met a few nights ago didn’t need the help. Perhaps this story will give you an example of what I’d teach a woman: how to clear the path and make it easier for a guy to approach her.

Miss Single Girl, tear down this wall!

Of the five girls in her group that I spotted by the bar, she definitely was the standout. Only problem was, she was also the least accessible. She was pinned against the bar by her friends with their backs to me on one side, and on her other side a bunch of dudes were ordering drinks. I might as well have had to climb the Berlin Wall to get to her. And we know how long it took to bring that down.

Some might have suggested I get a conversation started with one of her friends and “pawn” her off, and I would have done that if necessary. But I don’t like treating girls as chess pieces if I can help it, so I chose to be patient for a few minutes and talked to my friend.

Then, like Moses parting the Red Sea, my patience was rewarded when the girls walked toward the middle of the bar. Even though they were in a circle formation, I had no excuses left. So I approached my desired girl and one of her nearby friends with some half-assed remark about how a lot of guys in the bar were wearing plaid (which was true).

My friend gave me some helpful wingman support, and a couple of hours later, I walked out with her number. We had drinks tonight, in fact, and she told me she intentionally had her friends move toward the middle of the bar to make her group more approachable.

I don’t know how many women can muster the fortitude to go up to a guy, but any woman with some awareness can do a thing like that. This lovely blonde did, and thus she laid claim to one of the Great Moments in Female Pickup History. It wasn’t quite as impressive as what  Dave Chappelle’s character did, but it got my respect.

if i would help a girl to pick up guys, i would suggest her to say to the guy ( and now listen! its very importent 😀 )
“Do you wanna have sex, now”

and voila, she gets the guy, at least for the night (-:

This is true, Andy! But a lot of girls want more than sex for the night (so do I, for that matter). Hence, learning a few things can help.

What would you teach women?

These are a few things that come to mind:

Dressing and grooming better
Being more approachable (such as what the girl in this post did)
Body language and facial expressions
And really, the same Big Four I taught to guys: talking about yourself, touch, tell him you like him, and logistics.

facial expressions!
