How to Pick up a Girl at a Stoplight

You may have less than a minute to impress her.You may have less than a minute to impress her.

You're waiting for the light to turn green when you look beside you and see the most amazing girl. You've only got a few seconds to get her attention. With a few basic pointers, you may be able to flirt effectively even at a stoplight, turning time spent stuck in traffic into a chance at making a love connection.

Step 1

Scope out a specific type of girl. If she's listening to loud music and driving fast it may mean she's more apt to be spontaneous and more likely to let a guy pick her up at a stoplight.

Step 2

Look for a girl that's by herself. If she's with other people or friends she has a "reputation" to uphold. She likely doesn't want them thinking she's so easy that a guy can pick her up at a stoplight, so she may be more likely to ignore you.

Step 3

Roll down your window, wave and nod or do something to get her attention. At a stoplight she's focused on traffic and waiting for the light to change, so you've got to do something to get her to look your way before you even have a chance.

Step 4

Make eye contact and smile. This lets her know you find her attractive. If she's interested in you, she's going to return the smile and secretly wish she had more time to get to know the cute guy in the sports car.

Step 5

Ask for directions. This gives you a chance not to seem desperate. Once the window of opportunity is open, ask her if she has plans tonight.

Step 6

Hold up a note that says, "What's your number?" Hey, you've only got a few seconds, and if you don't do something quick you may lose your chance forever. Who cares if she laughs at you and speeds on? You don't have anything to lose.
