Using clever bits from television to attract women...

Often I see in movies or on tv shows, men and women will flirt with each other by making an animal noise, like maybe when they are passing one another in an office or something. The guy will make a "grrrrrr" type noise as a way of flirting with the woman. It is quite common to see this in pop culture. Know what I'm talking about? Is this a good way to flirt with women in the real world?

Cute concept. Yes, you can take many of these pop culture references and do something more with them to give your game a little 'juice.'

There's a cute little ad that "Axe" uses (the men's shower products) that uses the reference to 1970's porn with the whole "Bow-chicka-bow-bow..." I used that a little over the last week, but not to open the conversation. It was merely used as a tool to joke and have a little fun with as we talked. Every few sentences I'd look at her and go, "Bow-chicka-bow-bow!" It became our cute "in" joke.

The problem here is that if you don't do it congruently and with a little implied "wink" to the reference, the person you're doing it to can think you're a bit strange. Let's face it - this is the REAL world, right? What works in a commercial won't work in the same way, no matter how clever it looks on the screen.

So the answer is a qualified "Yes."

IF you can pull off the playfulness. This is something that you have to be very confident and congruent with or it won't work. You also have to have spoken with this girl at least once before as well.

I'm thinking of the scene in Spider-man 3 where Tobey Maguire is plugged into his "venom" persona, and he's walking down the streets of New York, pointing finger-guns at women and being all goofy. He doesn't get a lot of positive reaction on this, even in the movie, and that's pretty true to life.

You can't possibly be taking yourself seriously while doing this, and that's the attitude to use...
