My guy friends often joke my roommate (my frouple, if you will) and I have a fan club. Though, this little support group does not have one male member. Instead, it's filled entirely with females — platonic female friends of friends, to be exact.
Listen, being single in New York (or any other major city) is rough. The surplus of disastrous dates, the guys who constantly disappear and reappear, the dudes who just want to hook up, etc. You get to a point where you could care less about the hottie who won't look your way at the bar and you're all, "bring on some new besties!" Amiright, ladies?
Though it's certainly possible, you can't always be insta-friends with someone you're meeting for the first time. So how do you lure in a new BFF?
Our friends at CollegeHumor came up with some foolproof platonic pickup lines you absolutely have to to try. From "Are those space pants, because they're really cute! Where did you get them? We should go shopping together sometime," to "Hey, what's your sign? ...Wow, I'm a Gemini! According to the stars, we're supposed to have a mutually supportive and noncompetitive positive relationship!", once you pull these magic lines, you two will be tearing up the dancefloor in no time.
