How to Pick Up a Guy at a Coffee Shop
Want to meet guys in real life? Coffee shops, live music concerts, and dog parks are GREAT places to meet guys.
They key is to always look good when you go out (so go ahead and put on some lipstick!) and to consistently go to the same place over and over again...it may take a guy a few times to see you to ask you out!
5 Tips to Pick Up a Guy at a Coffee Shop
If you want to meet a guy at a coffee shop, then check out these five tips on how to pick up a guy at a coffee shop.
1. Choose the Right Coffee Shop to Pick Up a Man
The first step is to pick a good coffee shop for meeting a man.
Choose a coffee shop that is in a neighborhood with men your age.
2. Sit in a Strategic Location at Coffee Shops to Meet Men
Don’t sit in the corner of the coffee shop! And don’t sit with your back facing the door.
Places to Sit in a Coffee Shop to Meet Guys
- Sitting by the entrance, where you can see everyone as they walk in and smile
- Sitting at a community table
- Sitting where you can see people after they have gotten their coffee.
3. Look at the Guy Multiple Times to Catch His Attention
You can try smiling at men and catching their eye, but this strategy is too subtle.
So what should you do? STARE at the guy. Catch his eye for more than 2 seconds. Sound creepy? Yes. Feel uncomfortable? Yes. But you can't be subtle. You have to be very obvious.
4. Look at the Guy – Again – and Smile!
After you’ve locked eyes with a guy, look at him, AGAIN. Looking at a guy once and catching is his eye is not enough. After you’ve caught his eye, look away, and then look at him again.
You may need to catch his eye anywhere from 6-9 times. Men won't notice you looking the first few times!
And of course, give the guy a HUGE smile. Each time you see him, smile!
5. Mix It Up to Meet a Guy in Real Life
Different men have different routines and are attracted to different looks in a woman. So mix up your routine!
Try different days of the week and try different times. You’ll meet different men.
Try wearing your bright red lipstick some days, and soft pink lipstick on others. Try yoga pants and a comfy, soft sweater one day, and black jeans with a leather jacket on another. Mix it up!
