You can pick up women using your core or using your core communication skills.

Talk To Them Like Humans

Women aren’t some alien creatures from Venus. The best way to find out what a specific woman wants is by using your mouth words good.

Don’t approach someone by calling her “delicious” or a similar sexually aggressive sentiment. Do not grind against her on the dance floor. Definitely don’t grind her if you have not talked to her first. She is a human being.

Pick-up lines are grand if that’s the way you feel most comfortable initiating conversation with another human, but they give off the unsexy vibe of “hey there, you, disposable person with ears.”

If She Is Not Interested, Go Away

If she’s not responding happily, leave the poor girl alone. I know it may be hard, to approach someone you are attracted to and even harder when all your deepest fears of being an unattractive human are temporarily confirmed. It’s a confidence knock.

But, being a human, she has a more of a right to ignore you or outright reject you than you have any right to talk to her. Flirting with someone is a lot more enjoyable when you both are doing it. Don’t take rejection personally and definitely don’t take it out on her.

Don’t Pressure Her To Do Things

We are all biologically designed to like sex. However, not all women do and certainly not all women want to sleep with you. Despite this. there are lots of women out there looking for something purely physical. Mutually flirt your way up to mentioning your intentions and see if she’s up for it.

Don’t go up to her and start talking about sexually explicit things, most women will cringe for sure.

Ease your way into it, maybe by a polite introduction and then try being genuine. Women actually appreciate it. There’s a huge difference between being straightforward and being aggressive. You will eventually pick up if she is interested or not.
