    Default Do the classic pick up lines still work?

    I was often a little gun shy of using some of the classic PUA lines here in Toronto. Considering this is where Mystery got his start and figured those were probably used all over town. Always worried someone would say that's the 4th time they heard that line.

    So when i started gaming I used my own. But in the end I actually find the classic lines actually work. What I mean by classics are :

    "Who do you think lies more? Men or women"?

    "I have a buddy who still speaks to his ex girlfriend. Yet his girlfriend seems to have a problem with that. What do you think?"

    I find them inherently more open ended and easier to stack with the next line. I guess these days there are so many pick up approaches now that the old ones have been forgotton.

    Do you find the oldies but goodie opening lines still work well in your area? Be curious which area you live in if they do.

    this one still works just fine.


    "Who do you think lies more? Men or women"?
    this one is more widely known, and its not very open ended when you think about it. cause she's really only going to give you a one word answer to that question and then you have to ask another follow up open ended question witch can easily end up in "question train".

    I guess these days there are so many pick up approaches now that the old ones have been forgotton.
    the truth is, all of these "oldies" are questions that have been used to start debates long before pick up came along. the only time any woman realizes you're using a line on her is when you use really cheesy pick up lines you got off the internet.

    like the classic "did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" or the how much does a polar bear weigh?... enough to break the ice"
    (don't get caught using stupid lines like this... just don't do it... lol)

    honestly I would argue that situational openers work the best, but of course that actually requires a slight level of intellect to be able to carry the conversation.

    "Pickup lines" should be avoided. (Like Meteora said)
    "Openers" like in "The Game" that Mystery made famous can still work. But I personally would avoid using them as-is.

    Instead, use them as examples / templates to create your own. Try to be more original, rather than a clone of someone else.

    The key is to just be different than (and stand out from) every other guy that is probably saying crap like "Hey what's up? can I buy you a drink?" " or "So, what's your name? Are you from around here?" etc.

    Mystery was trying to show guys that being successful only requires you to be more interesting than the average schmuck.

    Pick up lines are meteora and T-Mal have already stated, don't work. I think their only practical use is for jokes with the guys.

    The trick is to open the conversation in a way that sets up a good base from which to build a conversation and get them interested.

    Thanks guys! Appreciate all the feedback. I agree the Openers are really just a framework for an interesting conversation
