MANILA, Philippines – Imagine you’re in a bar and you see someone attractive. What’s your game plan?
It’s cliché to approach a woman and offer to buy her a drink before dropping the pick up line that you hope will put an an end to all pick up lines. When you sneak up beside a guy to grab his attention by dancing or talking loudly, this may just leave a bad impression. Plus it’s not guaranteed that you’ll be noticed. Ask the waiter or bartender to give your note written on a napkin? It may just be a lost cause.
