5 Great opening lines for meeting guys
If you're at an art gallery, you can comment on the exhibit. If you're at a show, you can give your thoughts on the band. Don't weigh in like a debater with an opinion, just float your viewpoint out there and open the door by turning it into a question: "Were those guys great, or what?"
Sometimes nothing happens, but if it does, you can capitalize on the opportunity. If the man of your dreams is waiting behind you in line for movie tickets and the person at the ticket window pitches a fit and storms off, you can take it as a sign from God that you should turn around and ask, "So what was up with that guy?"
If you're at a formal affair, this one's easy; it is, however, more subtly effective when the dress is casual. Regardless of the outcome, the look on the face of a guy who's wearing a T-shirt and jeans will be reward enough when you walk up, smile, and say, "Hey, nice shirt."
Pick a few of the places from your personal history, then walk up to the best looking man in the room and say, "You look so familiar. Did you go to L'Academie des Beaux Arts in Paris?" (Or, you know, wherever.) He'll say no and you can ask about somewhere else you've been. Human nature being what it is, there's every likelihood he'll start asking about places he's been, and won't that just be cozy?
