Some guys have the midas touch when it comes to girls and seem to be able to pull no matter what they do or say. Others are so hopeless they couldn’t get a girl if they paid them (ok, that’s a metaphor, of course they could get one if they paid!) but you get the point. If you’re one of those guys who just can’t seem to catch a break, we’re going to help you out by giving you a list of 3 mistakes to avoid when approaching girls in a clubbing environment:
1. Insults – no matter what Neil Strauss says, girls don’t like being insulted. The author of The Player, reckons if a guy walks up, starts talking to a group of girls, compliments a few of them, and slightly insults the girl he actually wants, she won’t be able to resist him. We think not. Mr Strauss’s 2005 publication apparently sold a gazillion copies and is meant to work like a charm, but we just don’t see how. When us girls are out for a night on the town, dressed to the nines, happy and hanging with our girls, the last thing we want is to be insulted – in front of them!
2. Being presumptuous – this includes using terribly corny/crude pick up lines that you think girls are going to find hilariously funny and drop their pants right in front of you. In this instance, the idea that if you think it and act it, you’ll be it or get it, is incorrect. Confused yet? What we mean is, if you’re shelling out lines like “hey honey, my place or yours?” or “how do you like your eggs in the morning?” to every female who walks past you, it’s not going to work. This is lame, it tells us females that you have nothing else to offer, you’re easy and you you’ve got an ego bigger than list of corny lines.
3. Groping – it is one of life’s great mysteries how men are STILL under the assumption that by groping a girl who walks past, that this action will get them laid!!! We might as well still be living in the stone ages when men used to drag women back to their caves by the ends of their hair when they were felt like a bit of prehistoric lovin’; news flash – we didn’t enjoy it then and we don’t enjoy it now! Trust us, a “Hi” goes much further than a grab on the ass…unless of course it’s a slack in the face you’re after.
