Chat up lines do not work for everyone. A great gay chat up line depends on
perfect delivery, a well placed situation, good timing and a receptive audience.
Most traditional chat up lines can easily be adapted to gay chat
and a few have been created specifically by guys looking for guys.
To make chat up lines work for you when out on the prowl for a bit of fun or a
prospective dates, you need a cheeky smile, a sense of humour and a back up plan
in case your line falls flat on its face. Judge the situation too; sometimes a
run of the mill conversation started will work much better than a practised and
stiff chat up line. A ‘chat up line’ is really just an opening line, something
to break the ice. Something straight to the point and none offensive will
usually work best.
If you must resort to using chat up lines in your dating quest though, consider
using some of these, simplicity is usually the key to success:
‘Can I buy you a drink’- Works best after there has been a little bit of eye
contact and a few swapped smiles. It lets your potential guy know that you like
the way they look and that you are interested in talking to them. It may not be
the most inventive but it is inoffensive and generous.
‘Hi, I'm doing a survey ...What's your name? What's your phone number? Are you
free next Saturday?’ – Cheeky and reels someone in a little bit before you hit
them with the killer line. If Saturday is a no and you want to push a little
further, add on ‘then how about Sunday?’
‘You see my friend over there? He wants to now if you think I’m cute’ – A new
twist on the old ‘my friend fancies you line’. Clever enough to make someone
have to think just a tiny bit to realise what you are saying a get out clause in
case it goes wrong. ‘Oh sorry, slip of the tongue, I meant do you think he’s
‘You have amazing hair’ – Gay guys take pride in their appearance. A well placed
compliment will go a long way, couple it with a subtle double take and you are
on to a definite winner.
‘If this bar is a meat market, you must be a sirloin steak’ – Ha!
Gay areas around the country are all have a couple of bars known as a ‘meat
market’. Let your guy know that you think he is the best piece of meat in the
place and he will be putty in your hands.
