100% Effective Pick Up Artist Openers That Work
The opener is the first thing you say, it’s the first impression you make on a person. A good opener is designed to be funny, to make you look cool, and is far more interesting than whatever the girls might have been discussing before you came into the picture.
There are various types of pick up artist openers; we will be looking at indirect openers. An indirect opener is one that doesn’t directly convey your interest in her and doesn’t put a lot of pressure on the conversation.
For example, if you were to say, “You’re hot and I want you”, that would put a lot of pressure on her because it is very straightforward. However, if you were to instead open with, “When does it get busy here?”, there is no pressure and the conversation is much more comfortable for both parties.
Here are some more examples of indirect pick up artist openers and how they could be used. Different people feel comfortable saying different things, so you can pick a few from the following, modify one, or even make up your own after reading through and getting an idea of what an indirect opener sounds like. Remember that you don’t need a whole arsenal of openers to use, a couple of solid tried and true openers are enough.
“Oh, there is a guy over there who is so perfect for you!”
With this opener, you would approach a woman, pointing out a guy that you think would be ‘perfect’ for her, and try to bring her over to meet him. Invariably, she will refuse.
Then, you can carry on by saying how she should trust you because you’re a great matchmaker. This leads nicely into a conversation about dating and relationships. Because her objection is towards the other guy, you have less of a chance of getting rejected. This also provides a false disqualifier, which ultimately makes it easier for you to hook a group.
Pick Up Artist Openers Are Useless Without a Basic Understanding of Follow Through
“You are so…in my way.”
Not the best of the list of pick up artist openers, but it will work if you quickly introduce yourself right after the opener. This is for those situations where you’re walking and there’s a girl in your path.
Put your hand up, as if gesturing for her to pause, look at her seriously and deliver the opener. Remember to pause, making her think that you’re going to say something cliché like, “You are so beautiful”.
If done right, it at least guarantees a laugh.
“Are you guys super-shy or what? I’ve been here for ten minutes and you haven’t offered to buy me a drink or say hello.”
This opener puts them right on the spot at first, then quickly relieves the tension. You could get a laugh if it is delivered correctly.
“Are you posh girls, are you rich?”
This allows for the funny follow-up, “I’m looking for a rich posh girl who can buy me stuff.” I have used this one successfully before, but as with all one-liners, don’t expect it to be a magic bullet.
“Did you invite all these people? I thought it’d just be us.”
A semi-direct approach, but allows for a laugh.
“You probably get no attention from guys at all, so I thought I’d come and make conversation with you.”
An opener like this should elicit a laugh, but be sure to have a line or two to follow it up with, as you’ll then be put on the spot.
“What’s your name?”
One of my personal favorites. This is a good one to use with girls who are wearing some kind of an accessory. You would look at her, double-take, then look at the item like there’s something off. Hold up a finger, telling them to “wait”, then go ahead and adjust the item. Look her over again and give her a thumbs-up. But don’t let it end there, or else that’ll be it.
Follow it up with a line like this:
You: “What’s your name?”
You: “Melissa, I just made you twenty-nine percent more stunning. You owe me!”
“Hey, I’m here to meet some people tonight, what’s your name?”
A standard, pretty low-risk opener that makes you look sociable, friendly.
“Do you think I look gay?”
This one almost never fails. The story behind it might be that a guy just tried to hook up with you, or a friend just told you that you looked gay in your shirt/those shoes/etc.. An alternative could be that you were just at the bar and got chatted up. They will laugh, works like a charm, and they will open up very easily.
