Via Complex Mag:
What you used to do: Buy a woman a drink as an icebreaker.
What you should do: Start an interesting conversation.
Buying women drinks to get their attention is a sad ploy that shows little creativity and even less game. Attractive women get offered drinks all night long. Hell, even unattractive women get drinks handed to them! Saying hello or making a witty opening (clarification: not a pick-up line) is the proper way to get the ball rolling.
Buying her a drink as an icebreaker is a cop-out, and it’s a move that shows you’re lacking the confidence and/or intelligence to attempt conversation. If you have even the slightest bit of swagger, you should not be buying a woman’s attention. You should be confidently putting who you are on the table, not putting a free martini on the bar.
Not to brag but…….I’m kinda good at this.
