Best Pick-Up Line

Posted by ASDA        Comments

Esquire Magazine states, “Pick-up lines are corny, rehearsed witticisms that say as much about the nitwit charmed by them as they do about the amateur employing such desperate tactics.”  Not a great endorsement from the home of “Man at His Best”.  As a woman on the receiving end of many of these lines, I have to agree with the experts.

Yet there is this one line that I've always appreciated.  It’s refined, friendly, and promising.

“Do you want to dance?” a guy asks with a smile and an extended hand.  Now that’s good.  So good, in fact, I've hardly ever turned it down.  What I love about it is how much it tells me about the other person.  He’s fun, confident, and wants to do things that I want to do.  Immediately, he’s off to a good start and I want to now more about him.  But first,we’ll just share a dance.  So I take his hand and let him lead me to the dance floor. 



Thinking about taking partner dance classes? Not sure what to sign up for? A mix of both is recommended for most people. Here's an idea of what to expect from group classes and private lessons.

Group Classes


  1. Practice leading and following with a variety of partners.
  2. Make new friends and practice partners.
  3. Watch other people try new moves and learn from their experience.
  4. Group classes are less expensive than private lessons.
