"Can I buy you a drink?"
Put these six words together and you get the world’s most-used pick-up line. And probably the oldest one, too—our cavemen ancestors, not to mention apes, offered food and drink to females as part of a mating ritual.
Our biology might not have changed much since caveman days, but the dating world has. It’s time to retire that line, and learn the new rules of when it’s OK (and not OK) to buy a woman a drink.

James Bond could get an instant date by walking up to a beautiful woman and offering to buy her a drink. You probably can’t. Don’t feel bad—it’s not because of your looks or lack of charm. Even one of the actors who plays James Bond wouldn’t be able to make this work if he was off set and no one recognized him.
Why? When you walk up to a woman and offer to buy her a drink, she’s not thinking about James Bond. She’s thinking about all of the loser guys who have approached her and offered to buy her drinks over the years. Attractive women who get hit on a lot don’t have time to get to know every man who approaches; they make associations and look for patterns. With many women, a line like this will get you blown out right away.
