Let’s be real, most of the time, people don’t know how to hit on someone. Many think they do but then end up getting denied while claiming that other person was just stuck up or bitchy or thought they were “too good” for them.

Does this sound like you? If it does, you probably just don’t know how to hit on someone in a way that isn’t just like romantic comedies, because if we’re being honest here, those movies have it all wrong. They’re fiction. They make for a good story but don’t actually depict what hitting on someone in the real world is really like.

It’s not as simple as walking up and dropping an overused pickup line like, “Did it hurt… when you fell from heaven?” You need to make an effort, but not in a way that absolutely reeks of desperation. If you really want to hit on someone and up your chances of them actually being interested in getting to know you, perhaps even dating you, use these tips.
