Guys and Girls, you have all been in this situation. You’re dying to go talk to this girl or guy; hopefully exchange numbers and some saliva (don’t deny it.). Well, unfortunately for you, statistics are against you. I’m guessing if you’re reading this you’re the 95% of Men or Women who have confidence issues. Yes girls, guys also have confidence issues. Well, I have great news for whoever is reading this. In life, when you’re handed lemons; you make a Lemon Drop Martini (helps you get cozy and comfortable too!). This time the lemons are your stature. This article is mainly aimed at sophomores or freshmen that know their way around and have that natural killer instinct. You see having experience on your side is a wildcard in breaking the ice. Here a few phrases to use when approaching a freshman – remember look confident!
1) You know the school better than anyone else! Go up to the girl/guy and whisper:
“I know this place pretty well; I can find a pretty quiet spot for both of us.” Make sure to wink, it always sells the product better. This should make them laugh, if not, get ready for a nice playful slap that will give you a one-way ticket to the Nurse’s office.
2) After suffering from endless classes with different teachers, you pretty much know how they organize their courses. Ideally, you want to approach someone from the same class or who has had the same teacher as you in the past. Go up to them and say with a big smile on your face: “That teacher always ends class early; we can take advantage of the spare time.”
Once again, tread lightly the goal is to create a reaction. They have to laugh about it, but for people who like to get right to business, I ask: Why not?
3) The next one applies to everyone. As College students, 95% of us are concerned with our studies and always complain about our marks. So now let’s say you have broken the ice and you ask for their number and they reply by stating they are not available. Well easy, the dialogue should look like this:
X: “So, let’s exchange numbers and go out sometimes.”
Y: “Sorry, I don’t think my boyfriend/girlfriend would appreciate that.”
X: “I have a Calculus test tomorrow.”
Y: “What are you talking about?!”
X: “Oh sorry, I just thought we were naming things we could cheat on.”
4) The Gym is as very important spot at a College/University and before graduating most people are bound to enter it once or twice. Go up to someone who seems like they need some help and ask them. “I’m pretty sure sex is a great alternative. I can definitely help you out.”
This is foolproof (not really). Go for it, don’t be scared. Confidence is the best pickup line booster.
You have now been armed with little tips and tricks. Remember: with great power comes great responsibility. Good luck and have fun.
