Before that, an Elizabethan man could write a sonnet, extolling the virtues of his paramour. And even before that, a Viking man could just sail into the nearest village and haul off a bride like a sack of potatoes. Nowadays, we have pickup lines.
All pickup lines are instantly recognizable and a little corny, but the ones below, at least, prevent you from winding up with a drink in your face. Also included for your picking up pleasure are some suggestions on what to do after you've made that first move.
TOP 10 PICKUP LINES THAT WORK #10
GIANT POLAR BEAR. (HUH?) IT BROKE THE ICE.
This is goofy. Definitely goofy. But goofy can be a good thing. This pickup line has to be pulled off with a completely straight face, so if you're a giggler, forget it. The appropriate facial action is a charming grin as you say, "It broke the ice."
Success: *Giggle* "You goof! I'm Sandra."
NEXT STEP: "So now that you know I'm a dork, can I buy you a drink?"

YOU'RE SO BEAUTIFUL THAT YOU MADE ME FORGET MY PICKUP LINE.
Perfect execution of this pickup line will involve walking purposely towards your target as if you have something to say, stopping just in front of her and stammering a bit. Hopefully she'll help you out with a "can I help you?," or "do I know you?" So you can catch her off guard by whipping it out as if you just thought of it. She'll know you didn't - but, seriously, what girl could resist that kind of compliment?
Success: "I bet you say that to all the girls."
NEXT STEP: Deny! Deny!

IF I HAD A NICKEL FOR EVERY TIME I SAW SOMEONE AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU, I'D HAVE FIVE CENTS.
Serious "aww" factor at work here. Not to be attempted in very loud environments. Having to repeat yourself would totally kill it.
Success: "Well if you only have five cents, I'd better get you a drink."
NEXT STEP: Thank her graciously, but tell her the round is on you - if she likes you, she can get the next one.

EXCUSE ME; MY FRIEND OVER THERE WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU THINK I'M CUTE.
This one is incredibly sweet, but should only be attempted by clean-cut guys with a "nice boy" look to them. Imagine a burly, macho, work-boot wearing dude trying to pull this off? Done laughing? You get my point.
Success: "You can tell you're friend I've been watching you since you came in."
NEXT STEP: "You know what? He's fine over there - my name's Eddie."

I'M SORRY, WERE YOU TALKING TO ME? (NO.) WELL THEN, PLEASE START.
This one tosses the ball in her court a little bit. You made the initial overture, and are giving her the chance to get things rolling. It's ballsy, but a girl with a good sense of humor will go with it. This can fail miserably if you get a shy girl.
Success: "What's a nice boy like you doing in a place like this?"
NEXT STEP: "Oh man, you totally got me, I was looking for someone like you." If you're lucky the pickup line war can continue until you're both laughing like hyenas.
