Keep your eyes on the prize
Actions speak louder than words. So a well-executed “eye bang” from across the room will peak her curiosity pre-introduction. “A really attractive man walked into the bar and we locked eyes immediately,” says Jacqueline, 27. “For a few minutes, I kept catching him looking my way. He finally came over to take the seat next to me, then said, ‘I need to know who you are.’ I was smitten -- and now we live together.”
Why did this move work? Because the guy didn’t just grill Jacqueline like a porterhouse with his stare from afar. That was just a teaser. After a few exchanged glances, you too must strap on your big-boy boots and cleverly use your words.
Keep it simple
Imagine you’re enjoying a scoop of vanilla gelato; it’s delicious in its simplicity, so there’s no need to douse it with caramel, gummy bears, sprinkles, crushed Reese’s bits, whipped cream, kale, and unicorn tears. Apply the same idea next time you see a hottie but can’t think of a damn thing to say -- channel your inner Adele with a simple “Hello.” Faye, 28, agrees: “‘Hi’ works pretty damn well for me. I’m not for cheesy one-liners!”
