How many times have you gone out for a drink with some friends and had a guy tap your shoulder, interrupting your conversation - to say the most ridiculous pick up line? The thing is, the good pick up lines could work if they're used in the right context... It also helps when you're good looking. Here are some pickup lines that would actually work on me:
1. Pretending you've met them before
"Hey! So nice to see you again". How you been?"
This one is typical. More than half of the time the girl will feel bad that she doesn't remember you, and will play along. If not, here's a chance to meet her.
2. Comparing them to a famous person
"You look exactly like [insert celebrity of your choice]"
If she actually looks like the person you are comparing her to, she'll be flattered. If not, here's an opening to prove that she does.
3. Giving a backhanded compliment
"You would be so beautiful...if you were taller"
The guy who is confident enough to approach you by insulting you, usually knows what he's doing because he's done it many times before. Whether that's a good sign or not, is your decision to make.
4. Complimenting their outfit
"Those shoes look amazing on you"
We take a lot of time (too much of it) and effort to get ready to go out. When a guy takes the time to realize something we're wearing, it's very flattering.
5. Offering them a drink
"Let me guess, vodka soda?"
Straight to the point. This guy skips the unbearable small talk and offers you a drink. Of course that is if you drink vodka sodas. Little advice, if you see another drink in her hand (beer, whiskey, martini) probably safer to go with the obvious choice.
6. Blaming it on your friends
"Hi. My friend over there is shy and he wants to know if you think I'm cute"
Very smooth, tall guy in the tailored suit.
7. Questioning their decisions
“What’s a girl like you doing in a place like this?"
This actually works regardless of the context. You'll get an automatic "excuse me?" which you can then use in your favour. If the place is classy, say she doesn't belong. If it's grungy and hip, say she's classier than that.
8. Hitting them with a headline
"Hi, my name is [Your Name], but you can call me tonight."
Hand of applause goes to the funny guy who isn't afraid to be blunt.
9. Asking a question she can't say no to
"Hi, do you have a few minutes for me to hit on you?"
Usually get a response of, "you could try", now that you've got her attention the rest is up to you.
10. Being adorable
"You're so beautiful that you made me forget my pick up line"
If you don't blush at this one, it's because the guy is less than a 6.

While dismayed Habs players held back tears at their post-game press conference, Lightning player Nikita Kucherov shared his thoughts about the season — including Canadiens fans — in his own emotional (and shirtless) audience with the media.
Players held back tears as they shared both their disappointment in the results and pride in their teammates.
"I've played on a lot of really good teams, with a lot of really good guys, it's hard right now," Gallagher said to the press.
"We've got so many players that worked their entire careers to get to this point and it's a tough pill to swallow."
Shea Weber reflected on the Canadiens' run as the league's underdogs.
"This group has a lot of character and we put up with a lot of adversity this year, we proved a lot of people wrong, in a tough year to boot."
When asked what he thought about the season, meanwhile, Price attempted to blame himself for the Habs' performance in the Stanley Cup Final, saying he didn't think he "played well enough at the start of the series."
Weber cut in to shoot him down. "I don't think that's the case at all. To be honest, I think we weren't good enough in front of Carey."
When Montreal Canadiens defenceman Alexander Romanov scored a goal during his first-ever Stanley Cup Finals game on Monday night, the whole city erupted in celebration. But the one who was celebrating the hardest was definitely Romanov's wife, Sofia Krasovskaya.
Following the game, Narcity Québec reached out to Krasovskaya and she opened up about her time as a newlywed hockey wife in Montreal.
Garbage littered the street in front of the Bell Centre.
The Montreal Canadiens defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night to claim Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final. The series now moves to Tampa, where the Lightning, still leading 3-1, has a chance to win the Cup at home (as their mayor, Jane Castor, was hoping).
But those odds didn't seem to damper Montrealers' spirit after their team's victory Monday. Video footage shows a crowd of hundreds outside the Bell Centre celebrating the Canadiens' win.
The video, captured by MTL Blog's Alex Melki, shows the crowd cheering and jumping at the moment the game ended and lingering downtown before police appear to disperse revellers. Melki reported that the SPVM used tear gas.
Garbage littered the streets.
In a morning report, SPVM spokesperson Jean-Pierre Brabant said four people were arrested for assaults on police officers.
Police also issued 36 tickets, Brabant said: 21 for municipal by-law violations and 15 for violations to the road code.
"At the end of the day, it went really well," he added.
