While you’re scanning the crowd at a sports bar, your next date may be in hot pursuit at Bed Bath & Beyond. We convinced single dudes to divulge their pickup plans.
1) MASTERING THEIR DANCE MOVES
“I once signed up for salsa lessons. Being in the class not only helped my footwork, but it also allowed me to be myself with the ladies…and show off my moves. I didn’t even have to think of any corny pickup lines because the class gave me an instant in.” —Jerry, 29
2) TAGGING ALONG ON TOURS
“When I lived in New York City, I used to ride the cheesy double-decker tour buses in hopes of picking up single out-of-town girls. Whenever I travel, I always want to meet locals, so I figured the bus patrons might be easy to get a date with. I figured right.” —Dave, 2
3) CRUISING HOME-DECORATING STORES
“I’ve gone shopping for bath towels just because I know girls like to shop at those kinds of bed and bath places. I even went as far as to linger by the checkout line with two different-colored towels just to ask a cute girl if she thought they matched. It totally worked. And I have, like, 35 bath towels now.” —Kenneth, 29
