    Default "You look familiar" opener

    How common is the you look familiar line? Is it well known as a pick-up line? I'm a student so my variation of it is "hey, weren't you in Mr. Sullivan's history class? You weren't, wow because you look exactly like this girl I saw/met in his class" is this bad, decent, good? I've only used it once and the girl was laughing, smiling, but I made the mistake of letting the conversation die and didn't get a number. What are your opinions on this line? I typically use it on a bus right after class because that way it sounds realistic. Thanks in advance for any and all feedback.

    Idk man I just sent something similar to that and got a "No clue" reply.
    It could be that it's 1:14 am and my inner player won't let me stop writing these random girls so late hah.

    It's alright, it works it's just not very creative. But ya splash in some humor and create some open threads in convo to progress.
    I actually used that same line and picked up a girl in a library elevator once lol.

    She actually gave me shit about it later but it was funny cause I was just like, well hey it got us to talkin didn't it?

    We went out off and on for awhile after that off and on for almost a year.. so ya it can work as an easy 'backpocket' option id say.

    I wouldnt be using it, If a person gets asked by a stranger something like "do I know you?" once they are aware its not them they are very quick to want to move on and get out of the conversation. Im still early in game and may be wrong but I think a question such as "do you know where Mr sulivans history class is being taught?" would be better as it would be easier for something like that to develop into conversation.

    This opener usually wreaks of obvious pickup, but women are not our enemies so if she has even a little interest she may even go along with it. I would try not to stay on it too long if you can see it is quickly going cold. Openers are just that, it's suppose to turn on someones "social button" in case it was shut off before and generally just get them in a talking mood WITH YOU. My suggestion is to have a contingency plan in case she calls you on your "you look familiar" opener. That way you maintain your frame and not run the risk of getting blown out.

    I've used this one before, it got the girl laughing but I didn't # close. Do you still think it would appear as an obvious pick up line when leaving the university because it is very possible I could've seen her. And has anybody else used this opener? Thoughts?

    Ya it's about the equivalent to the functional opener, like "do u have the time?"

    You can get ur answer and move on, or if there's reason for more convo, Stack forward. I try to avoid it for the most part, unless the person/target actually does look familiar.

    To add to this thread....

    I guess the obvious thing to say is that it works really well when she actually DOES look familiar and you figure out why lol. If you try to guess and keep getting it wrong that is usually the point where it wreaks of an obvious pickup line. So I would make sure you actually mean it and have something specific to her that will let her know you mean it.

    I've been experimenting with that opener for the past 2 days on facebook. I have only gotten positive responses from HB's who have mutual friends with me. An example would be in my thread "How am I doing so far?"
