It is a much maligned feature of singledom, but there’s a lot to be said in favour of the humble chat up line. If you don’t know how to break the ice, trotting out a trusted one-liner at least shows the object of your desires that you are interested in them.
Delivering a chat-up line, in the right way, can show you have confidence with women, but don’t take yourself too seriously.
Here are some of the most successful types of chat-up line…
Fly against the notion that only monosyllabic cavemen use chat-up lines to lure the ladies, with these clever quips.
We all know that a chat-up line is a roundabout way of saying ‘you’re attractive, and I’m interested.’ These straight to the point comments waste no time getting the message across. Be sure to deliver them with light-hearted humour or you could come across as scarily eager.
The way to woman’s heart is through her funny bone. Make her laugh, and you are already halfway towards your first date.
Ladies love a humble, bumbling Englishman (Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell). A self-deprecating line can be very effective as it demonstrated confidence but in a non-threatening manner. These are best delivered in person rather than over an online messenger or free dating site as their success depends largely on your appearance and body language.
The success of a chat-up line depends as much on the delivery as it does on the actual words chosen. Pick a line you can say with confidence, and don’t take yourself too seriously.
Always remember the number one rule of chat-up line use: Do not use the same chat-up line on multiple women in one night. They will most likely have overhead you deliver it earlier, and be laughing inside at your persistence.
