Lesson

It's always hard to start a conversation with someone who you're interested in.  How do you do it?

There are some famous pick-up lines that you probably shouldn't use, like:

  1. "Do you come here often?"
  2. "Do you have a map?  I keep getting lost in your eyes."
  3. "If I could rewrite the alphabet, I'd put U and I together."
  4. "Do you have any raisins?  How about a date?" 

Maybe it's best to say something normal, like "Hello."

What do you think?

"If I could rewrite the alphabet, I'd put U and I together." EPIC FAIL! LOL

Really, I don't think women like this. There're some creative pick-up lines but these were soo… I mean, I'd be sorry for the guy who tells these things. He'd be dumped very quickly! 

Guys must be more spontaneous and clever. I'd prefer a simple "hey, how you doing…" to " Baby, somebody better call God, cuz he’s missing an angel!" XD

very good man…

I've never used something like this…

Just say "hello!" it is enough to start a conversation and have a fun…

this topic is interesting and funny.

yah! i agree to what he said, a simple hello is the start

of either a good or a boring conversation. Well the intention here is how would someone create a connection with a new person. A simple hello can create that, and it's up to you then on how to make the conversation worth-continuing after you have made the connection.

 nice topic buddy.

I think if we say normally such as “hello”,it will not start with a enjoyable conversation ,for it is not relax.

I think a "warm up first will do  for example a small talk and then the "great talk!"

I think we must be creative and it depends of the situation…this decorated pick-up lines don't work with me.
