If anything is worth doing at all, do it with love. Do it for or out of love. Who says love is a bad reason for learning a language, we give you an official permission to slap them. Well, may be that is a bit harsh. Ever wondered how in films slapping always works to create interest on the part of the person slapped?

«Okay, pep talk! You can do this, but to be more accurate, you probably can’t. You’re way out of practice and she’s way too hot for you. So, remember, it’s not about scoring. It’s about believing you can do it, even though you probably can’t. Go get ‘em, tiger!» Barney Stinson
You have just met that special someone. Perhaps it is a cashier at your local supermarket or your colleague’s friend or your handsome neighbor. All these trifles like jobs and positions don’t really matter in the eye of true love. But how to approach them, what to say to them? Let us first talk about the do’s.
If you do not know them well, it is best to try and get to know them better in a public space: try to meet them in a coffee shop, at a party, in the park. But beware of stalking, or the person will assume you are hitting on them and may even get scared!

These are all unisex and pretty harmless. In different circumstances you might want to use some pick-up lines – for example, at a nightclub. Some of them sound very cheesy and may give the impression opposite to the one you are striving to produce.
«Remember my three beginner’s tips for picking up chicks: Address her by name, isolate her from her friends, subtly put her down.» Barney Stinson
