Most of you ladies will have encountered many, if not all of these pick-up tactics multiple times. Guys, check to see if your approach is on the list — if so you may want to get a new one.

“No,” he responded simply.

So before you head out to your favorite pub, be prepared to get hit on by one of these 12 types of guys. Keep reading »
