The Pickup Line…..Does it Really Work?

The Pickup line, I’ve heard them all.  Being a bartender definitely has its privileges.  As I’ve stated earlier we get to see and hear everything.

One such observation, albiet extremely humorous as time passes and more alcohol is consumed, is the mating ritual of the homosapien.

The mating ritual generally begins immediately upon entry into the bar.  First off we all need to check out the scene.

Don’t kid yourself we all do it, guys, girls, bartenders, servers, busboys, doorman, the DJ etc.  Anyone drinking, working or sometimes both, does it.

We need to see who’s available, size up the competition, and eventually make that all important, “Eye Contact”!  People, if they aren’t looking at you it’s a good bet they aren’t interested!!

I love watching guys saunter up to the bar and offer to buy a young woman a drink, she takes the drink and walks away.  If she wasn’t checking you out don’t waste your money.

Now that everyone is settled the fun begins.  The only way to use a one liner pickup line is as a humorous icebreaker.

If any guy actually thinks that it works otherwise, have another drink.  However, herein lies the problem, or from a bartender perspective, the comedy act.

Some people need liquid courage to strike up a conversation. The more you drink the braver you get, the braver you get the more women you talk to, the more women you talk to the more you drink and finally, the more you run out of intelligent things to say.

Voila, the mating ritual has begun and the birth of the pickup line is upon us.

The pickup line is usually so far fetched that it has to come from someone who has had a few too many. However, credit has to be given for originality, “If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put U and I together”, or dirty, “Gee, that’s a nice set of legs, what time do they open”.

All very cheesy but funny nonetheless.

This is generally a man thing, but ladies if you have a favorite pickup line that you use, please comment below, our fans would love to hear it.

Cheers, your bartender….The Drink Guy
