Singles Life Is A Lot About Timing
The best time to pick up girls in bars is when they have their guard down, which is to say off -peak nights and off-peak times.
That’s why I’ve had my most success not in a packed bar on a Friday or Saturday night but at what I call “transition time.”
This is the time when the girls have stopped in a bar for a drink or two after being out for the day and before they go home to get ready to go out for the night.
In other words, the time when daytime is transitioning to nighttime.
Okay, I’ve had good success after midnight, too, because it’s not their guard that is down at that time, but that the alcohol has eroded it.
“Transition Time,” as defined by me, is between 4-7 o’clock, ideally on a Saturday. And it is most effective in an area where there’s daytime activities and bars in the same area. As in a beach.
This is also the time that guys – who have generally been drinking earlier in the day – are departing. So the ratio is better at this time.
Girls are not expecting to get hit on until later, so they are more open to conversations during Transition Time.
Since they’ve been out for a while they do not feel they are looking their best (or as good as they will later) so their attitude is adjusted accordingly; they may even be surprised you find them attractive enough to talk to them.
The trick to picking them up is picking the girl whom you feel is most susceptible to be talked into staying with you. She will, know doubt, have a girlfriend or girlfriends who will tell her “it’s time to go!,” but if you can persuade her to stay, you’ve got a good chance of scoring with her.
At this point, your strategy is to have a couple of drinks at that bar, then take the girl to another bar for one or two more drinks. Maybe throw in a shot for good measure. Just be careful she doesn’t get too drunk or she will become a mess and you’ll lose her.
And make sure YOU don’t get drunk, as well!
By this time, the bars are nearly empty and getting ready for the late night rush, so you say “we better get out of here before the crowd starts to come in,” and, if all goes according to plan, you’re soon back at her place or your place.
And if that happens, you can give credit to “Transition Time.” And of course to me, PubClub.com’s blogger!
