    Unicycling isn't sexy, although six floors up does win bonus points, just for sheer persistence.

    I'd buy a gun just in case.

    Thats my trick, I always ask friends/friends of friends if I can draw them, because I can't afford to pay a model so I hope they would do me the favor to pose for me.

    They always get the picture I've drawn, and after/before I've tried to draw them I buy them a drink. However I give them the picture so theycan show it to their friends (if they like it).

    And sometimes their friends ask me if I would like to draw them .

    I'm still really sucky at drawing people, because they aren't experienced at sitting still so I need to hurry when drawing and can't take my time for a drawing. But it is always really fun and you get to know new people or get to know people better

    Art is a charm! Shame I don't have enough time to draw 24/7!

    I think...you should be careful what girls you decide to draw. I had an acquaintance ask me to draw her once (she was very attractive, according to my standards) so I figured why not. During the drawing she talked about how romantic it was, and how nobody has looked at her like that before, and blah blah lemme put on some sexy music...I didn't know what i was getting myself into. She seemed to develop this emotional attachment to me. It was just something I wasn't ready for.

    Your probably just safer talking to her, then when she finds out your an artist, there's a good chance she'll ask you to draw a picture of her. Just realize there could be unexpected repercussions...

    I spent a bit of time with her afterwards, and once you got past her looks, she became sort of dull and bland person to be around. Heh, it became of sort of clingy situation that was awkward to try and get out of. I feel like a dick saying that, but that's what it was like.

    Yeah, but you wouldn't want to overdo it.

    I remember once when i was eating and a cute girl asked me what i was eating. A lesser man might take this opportunity to flirt with her, but ooooooooh no, not me. In an attempt to remain unimpressed, I actually said, " Use your eyes"..... in a very sarcastic tone. I should've just shot myself

    Ouch.

    You just have a way with words huh white beard?

    Personally I think saying hi is a great way to start, providing you're not as creepy as James May.

    Magic tricks work wonders, providing you don't offer to saw them in half.

    The old 'penny behind the ear' trick is easy and effective, but I wouldn't try it with other body parts unless your going out.

    "What's that in your cleavage? Oh, It's a penny!"

    Wonderful ice breaker, gets a laugh every time.

    I can second that if you don't acknowledge the attractiveness of a woman who is used to having men fall all over her, you can drive her a little crazy.

    I think the first time I realized this was this one girl I worked with a girl who was very attractive. She was a sales rep for advertising, and I was a graphic artist who did the design work. One day it was decided that I should go out with her to talk with her clients. As we were out, she was getting calls on her cell from the various guys she was flirting with, and every stop we made the clients were falling over themselves to flirt with her. Hell, when lunch time rolled around she said she knew a place where they never charged her so we could eat for free.

    Let's say I made up my mind there was no way in hell I was going to fall over myself for her, which was helped by a few statements she made that made her sound like a gold digger.

    At the end of our day, she said it was fun and we'd have to do it again soon. I told her I'd have to see what my schedule looked like. I would certainly be friendly with her, but I never flirted with her (although I would point out how cheesy the guys who were making fools of themselves falling all over themselves for her). She'd repeatedly ask me to come have drinks with her (of course she knew a bartender that would give us free drinks all night), and I'd always say "maybe" and then not go. One day she put on her best innocent helpless girl act and asked me if I'd come over to help her move some stuff. I laughed and told her no chance, I hate moving (which I do, but I probably would have helped if I hadn't felt like she was trying to use her "manipulate men powers" on me. Simply asking me in a straight forward friend style would have gone over better). She pouted and said "please? I'll cook dinner for you," and I declined again, knowing full well she had a list of guys she could, and would, ask next.

    Anyways, I always got the impression it drove her a little crazy that she never got the typical guy responses from me. She kept trying to get that reaction out of me, and I never took the bait, mainly because I saw that she easily took advantage of the men that did.

    Over the years I've experienced that many of the really attractive women I've gotten to know are not really that interesting, and many are sooo insecure. When you realize that, they are a ton easier to talk to and get to know. They really do get tired of being put on a pedestal and hearing the "wow, you are so pretty" as the first thing out of a guy's mouth. Hell, avoiding saying that is so ingrained in me, that now I often forget that women DO like to hear it from time to time once you've gotten to know them.

    with a response to the original question art does help in attracting girls.

    then again all the girls ive dated are artists.... O_O and im the quittest,shyest, mysterious guy ever xD.

    So lately theres been this girl that ive been talking to and we met each other at co op (aww) for art and stuff and it turns out she listens to all the same music i do and that her dad raised here on it ( and he is intimidatingO_O) and she likes drawing and relaxing and shes hot

    anyway shes dated a lot of guys before, (cant blame em and she acts innocent and has low self esteem ( just like many girls these days ) but she is hitting on me O_O and in conncetion to what wilson said im driving her a little crazy with alienation and avoidance but i dont know if shes actually into me or she just wants me to be her bitch O_O. But honestly being an artist that can deliver a decent likeness in an image, it helps a lot. And you arent lying when you say art is your life. ( already lost an amazing women because of this ) but i will always stay true to art.

    What most of us wanna know is : did you bed her?
    LOL! Anyway, it's good to have chicks clinging to you. Then if you find her unsuitable, you can just find ways to shake her off.

    Oh yes, but if it's a girl you dunno so well (maybe a distant acquittance or a stranger), and you put your hand on the boobs and try the cleavage magic trick, you're either gonna get a tight slap or plenty of trouble afterwards (think angry boyfriends / husbands mobbing you down).

    I think it's wise that you didn't fall for the bait. Some of the pick-up forums I've been to have plenty of stories very similar to yours, only that those guys fell for the bait and got emotionally owned and wrecked by the girl (always a very hot babe with at least 9 / 10 score in looks). It's been said most of these types of girls suffer from bipolar / personality disorders and just get a kick out of wrecking guys like that after they've gotten the guys' heart.

    Over the years I've experienced that many of the really attractive women I've gotten to know are not really that interesting, and many are sooo insecure.
    Sometimes when I go to the city and saw those super-leggy tall pretty chicks who look like Sienna Miller and supermodels gang etc., I just can't imagine they're insecure inside. It's like, you can't imagine that a piece of diamond contains maggots and flies inside, can you? I must admit that even though I'm a man past his puberty long ago, I get kinda intimidated when I meet tall hot chicks (I'm not intimidated by short hot chicks, though :p).

    Women are a head game. Anyways, the more attractive the girl the more genuinely you may find that she's not interesting (self-absorbed, fake, always wanting compliments, etc.) so it ends up working out in the end.

    Any man with a "strategy" for meeting women is a creep. Sorry, it just makes you see us as some kind of conquest and not as people and that's just fucking creepy. Just be yourself, start a conversation naturally. Be honest and sincere in the first place, and if you think a girl is manipulating you just say so, don't manipulate back. I'll flat out tell you, the dudes who assume I'm playing head games are the fucking creepiest - makes me feel like some kind of specimen being dissected, like they want to string me up like a puppet, and I never know whether what they say is calculated to get a certain reaction or what. Stop that shit. Just be open.

    Is it me or does it seem that every summer there are threads devoted to picking up girls because they’re wearing skimpier clothing about this time and are more noticeable?


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    You know... Actually having used art to get a date before (she initiated the convo so I rolled with it) I figured this would be a 'share funny stories' thread or something... but damn... you guys are starting to formulate strategies and crap... It's kinda sad... Jailhouserocks last post pretty much sums it up... even if it might have been intended as a joke...

    I can say for my part, I never manipulated that girl back. I wanted nothing from her, and was friendly in every way, I just didn't fall into any patterns she expected, and it clearly baffled her. That was the extent of that story. Notice I never said anything about using this as a tactic to get any advantage. It was just an observation.

    Still, while it may seem creepy to some that people (both men and women) have to think about how they approach each other, it's sadly true. As a guy who sincerely tried to just be myself during my early twenties, I can tell you it's not always that simple. Like art, being good socially isn't just a natural talent, but a skill you may need to work on. It may be creepy if the guy's goal is to just get physical (but then that depends on the girl too, as some aren't much deeper either). However, if it's born out of a genuine desire to get closer and to get to know a girl, then a little "strategy" is really just a tactic to deal with the awkward parts. Men are still typically expected to be the aggressors and there are a lot of ways to handle that wrong.

    If you MUST make use of the art angle, try mentioning Botticelli.

    Actually, we are supposed to talk about our feelings, so maybe try "If I spread my arms as wide as I can, I can only reach .00000004209 of the way around this dust speck we call the Earth, and the span of our lives is but that of a mayfly so I feel like getting laid."

    Not so fast, now. A time / benefit analysis could be useful in this instance.

    To illustrate; say option 1 allows for a 1 in 5 success rate. That's pretty good but bear in mind each approach could easily take 40 minutes, what with the obligatory getting-to-know-you blather, the complimentary beverage and production of the actual art. Which works out at 5 x 40 minutes = 3hrs 20mins of work, on average, to get your end away. Could be worth it, sure, but consider option 2.

    Option 2 is certain to have an inferior hit rate, granted, so let's guess that a paltry 1 in 100 females would prefer to skip the word games and get straight down to it. On the face of it that's a pretty poor conversion rate until you realise it will only take 10 seconds max per encounter to ascertain if she's up for it. Do the maths and the average time before getting busy with option 2 is 100 x 10 seconds, equating to a shade under 17 minuntes, assuming the requisite density of females in the locale. As you can see, that's way ahead of option 1 and furthermore it leaves you 3hrs 3mins after the deed the draw whatever the hell you want.

    Now either that's true or I'm slightly cynical about the whole thing.

    No it doesn't help you with meeting women. If you get rejected you just get to say to yourself. "Well at least I can convey volume and shade. heh heh"

    Now that I've thought about it a bit more (and after reading a few of the posts) I guess the same thing goes for taking pictures as well. Or actually.. Maybe taking pictures wont be as bad. Its more complimentary, though I know plenty of grogeous women who regardless of their looks, are insecure and too frightened to take a step out and have pictures taken of them or get themselves drawn....

    Er anyway, *went off on tangent* I don't see how it would work unless you were drawing while they passed by and you had a card on you. I would like to think as long as you approached them assertively and gave them a charmng genuine smile (not a creepy lecherous one), you might get it. Of course I'd think that you'd get more no's

    This is very late in the conversation; but to answer the initial question, I really think you should NOT try to approach women with a "can I draw you?" proposition unless you can whip out an amazing portrait, real fast.

    Fact is, if you're in a public place and you accost a girl you don't know, chances are she's already on her way somewhere or she is busy. She's not necessarily a bitch for walking away from your approach, it's just that her mind is focused on another goal at that moment. If you stop her in her tracks, it better be for a good reason. If you ask her to pose and only have a clumsy stick figure to show for it, it's not going to have the desired effect. She'll think you're just trying to get an easy lay and you're wasting her time with a cheesy gimmick.

    That said, I can understand that it's not easy for guys to approach a woman. It is true that a lot of women still expect the man to make a move first and not every man is skilled in the art of flirting (I hate flirting so I can relate ). But as Nonie implied, not all women are the same. We're roughly 3+ billion out there. There is no secret recipe to attract all- or even most- women. Your best hope is to hang out in circles that welcome the type of women you feel you can relate to. If you want an artsy type, hang out at an art gallery or art workshop. It will make it much easier to start a conversation with a fellow creative type than to try to convince a total stranger on her way to the subway that she wants an amateur portrait done.

    What about in a bar or a club where everyone is just sitting and relaxing, here's an idea, if you like a girl, say you know a little about her, she seems nice, cute blah blah, try and draw a portrait of her without her knowing, make sure its good!, walk over, give it to her, smile and just walk away. make sure your not creepy with it.... and that you see this girl around quite a bit. i dunno if writing something like 'cute' on it would help.. or maybe something more.. interesting..

    i was thinking of 'unemployed boyfriend' by everclear, only with a portrait instead of a song lol.

    i dunno if this could be really creepy though.. lol it would help if you didn't have long black hair that covers your face and a slight limp and a trenchcoat... it looks kinda romantic in my head... but ya know... mind and matter are two different things..

    Crit for a crit!

    The secret to meeting chicks is being smart, eloquent, handsome, tall, toned, confident and talented. Try it and you'll be swimming in women.

    ...add good hygene and respectable employment for the 'over 22' crowd and I think you're on the right track.

    People, if you are even considering spontaneously crafting a work of art for a perfect stranger then you are trying WAY to hard.
