How to Use a Pick-Up Line to Get a Girl's Number

by Contributor

Some singles set themselves a goal when they go to a party or club on a Saturday night. Some will settle for nothing less than instant gratification. Others like the fishing-for-numbers technique. While scoring immediately is a long shot, collecting telephone or pager numbers for further pursuit raises the eventual odds of hooking up. Discover how to catch a girl's number with a unique pick-up line.

Be Sincere

Plan to actually call the girls whose numbers you get.

Use a pick-up line that implies you're interested in more than just sex. Express your curiosity about the girl's personality, such as, "Hi there. I was just wondering whether you're a cat person or a dog person."

Promote a dependable image of family values. Use a line like "You're the kind of a girl I'd like to take home to Mother."

Display your faithfulness by letting her know you want more than a one-night stand. Try "I'd really love to see you tomorrow night. And the night after that, and the night after that, and the night after that."

Be Shocking

Fool her, and then get in on the joke. Tell the girl you need her number now because you're doctor says you're dying. When she responds, tell her what you're really dying to do with her.

Get a girl to agree with you on something else before you ask her to say "yes" to giving you her number. For instance, at a crowded party, you could ask, "Do you ever feel like a number? Good. Give me yours!"

Use touch to make a trade. See how many numbers you can get with the pick-up line "I'm giving away a free massage for your phone number." Then make good on the deal all night.

Tip

  • Most girls will fall into two categories. The first type is distrustful, so pay special attention to presenting yourself as forthright and upstanding. The second type is prepared to distribute phone numbers and just wants to be impressed, so here is where shock value may pay off.

Warnings

  • Getting a girl's number, especially from a stranger, is not easy. You might have to try 10 or more times to get one number.
  • Going the shock value route raises both the odds of rejection and the odds of getting a very enthusiastic babe's number.
