Approach the person you want to pick up. Have good posture– your walk must convey confidence.

Step 2: Introduce yourself
Introduce yourself with a simple "Hi." Research shows it's the most effective opening line.

Step 3: Focus on other person

Tip: Use the other person's name. As communications legend Dale Carnegie once said, "The sweetest sound in any language is a person's name."

Step 4: Keep things light
Keep things light. Surveys show that people are drawn to a good sense of humor in a first encounter.

Step 6: Swap numbers
Swap phone numbers. Of course, if you're really hitting it off, you won't need to.
