Throughout all of human history, most men have faced the same one challenge: to approach a woman they don't know, but whom they are attracted to.

Over the centuries, the methodology has changed, but what it always comes down to is the line you say when you finally take your courage in both hands and walk up to them.

They call them “pick-up lines.”

Admittedly, an unworthy label for such a necessity in dating.

The singer, Rod Stewart, claims to have used the same line when approaching women over 30 years and it worked EVERY time.

So he says.

Well, maybe his status as a celebrity also plays a role.

But honestly, this chat-up line has everything you need to be successful:

  1. It's situational
  2. It's non-intrusive
  3. It's not too personal
  4. It's more or less honest
  5. It opens up a conversation as it demands an answer


Well to put you out of your misery, here's the line Rod kept having success with for 30 years … decide for yourself:

“Go up to a woman and say, in your best Cockney accent, in a tone of genuine curiosity, ‘What have you got in that handbag?' It worked for me every time.” (Source)

Well, I don't know about that Cockney accent, (being different is always good), but I'm sure it also works without it.

I for one love it! Try it out and tell me how it went.

Your friend,
