20 Worst Ways To Try And Seduce A Woman

Talking About Your Money

Talking About Your Money

It might be a good thing to get this out of the way first because sure, there are perhaps some women for whom the sole interest is money. But do you want a girl like that? Perhaps you do if it's only for the night but it will cost you!

For the rest of the time, you're just going to come across materialistic and lacking any other substance. Then again, maybe you don't have much money. Either way, this is one to avoid!

Giving Her A Pet Name

Giving Her A Pet Name

I know you think it's all cutesy and nice but trust me, it's fucking creepy! Save it for later should a relationship develop, and even then, go with the simple ones like "babe" or "daddy's little sperm dragon"...

Navel Gazing

Navel Gazing

Do too much talking about yourself and you will soon see the back of her as she runs away!

Be Arrogant

Be Arrogant

So many dudes cannot tell the difference between confidence and arrogance. She can (and will), however.

Use Clichés

Use Clichés

You'll either sound like you've just read "Pickup Lines For Dummies" or like you borrow what everyone else says because you don't have an imagination of your own. This gets really old, really fast!

Wolf-Whistling

Wolf-Whistling

Do we really even need to mention the why, what and how of this detrimental mistake. You'll very quickly become "that jerk". "That jerk" doesn't get anywhere from there.

Rely On Alcohol

Rely On Alcohol

A drop or two can't hurt if you're a little nervous but you can't rely upon it throughout the whole thing. She'll see through those insecurities in quicker time than it takes for you to realize you've made a mistake.

Text

Text

This one should be fairly self-explanatory. If you're paying attention to your phone then you aren't paying attention to her. She won't even get to the point where she thinks you're bored before she's already too agitated to let things go any further.

Double Up

Double Up

We're not suggesting that you're trying to take two girls home (but good luck to you if you can pull that one off, big guy!). We're talking about those times when you're not too sure which girl you really like and so you take interest in both to try and gage which is the better prospect. The problem is that neither of them are going to want to be second best and soon you're going away with neither.

Acting Like The Player

Acting Like The Player

Sure, women are going to love a guy who's self-assured and confident, but one who acts like he knows he's the business, well, you're going to get too big, too soon, to take home the prize (figuratively speaking).

Being Pretentious

Being Pretentious

When you assume some sort of elitist stance and/or boast a bunch, it makes you look like a dude with bulk insecurities. You want the opposite.

You Lie

You Lie

Besides the fact that she can almost definitely spot the lie as soon as it's told, you're going to trip yourself up eventually, even if she doesn't see it at first.

Talking About Your Ex

Talking About Your Ex

Maybe, at some point, there will come a time where you might swap one or two old war stories, but bringing up your ex by making comparisons will be seen as a huge red flag.

Hastiness

Hastiness

Nobody is saying that you should be shifty or cagey, but you don't have to seal the deal within the first few sentences either. It will seem as though you're looking to score and not really interested in her. Needless to say, you lose out on that.

Pessimism

Pessimism

You don't need to get out all the negative shit you've accrued throughout your life within the first meeting. You might feel like you do, but trust me, you don't!

Letting Awkward Silence Go On Too Long

Letting Awkward Silence Go On Too Long

Of course there will be a few moments of silence here and there when you first meet someone. It's perfectly natural for any future romance to stumble in those initial moments. But just don't let it go on for too long or you might run the risk of coming across a little dull and boring. Fill the gaps with something. It can't be too hard to think of something to say, right?

Stare

Stare

Don't stare at her. It's weird.

Flirting Around The Boys

Flirting Around The Boys

There's a few things which could go wrong here. She might feel intimidated or perhaps one of your buddies will say something stupid enough to turn her right off. It's not going to be too hard for them to do in this situation and think about it, no matter how much your friends actually want you to succeed, they don't care about it as much as you do.

Complaining

Complaining

What you're complaining about here will become secondary to the fact that you are indeed complaining. She's just met you - she doesn't care about whatever your issue is anywhere near as much as you, if at all. She will think that this is representative of who you are all the time and lose interest very quickly.

Insist She Do Something

Insist She Do Something

Trying to convince her to stay for another drink or come back to your place is a bad idea. Needless to say, this will come across as desperate and there will not be another time to give things another shot.
