Sadly, just being out and about is not enough to get hit on these days. You have to make a concerted effort. While it would be nice to just hit your local pub and watch the men fight to get to you, those chances are slim. At least if you’re me any way. If that happens to you, you should probably just stop reading now.
I NEVER Get Hit On
Three golden rules for keeping your cool -- and still getting some -- at the horse races this year.
"Growing up in Baltimore, I've attended many infield parties at the second leg of the Triple Crown, the Preakness. Something about that infield makes us all behave like heathens. Don't get me wrong — it's a good time (even though it feels a bit like a war zone). Hook-ups abound, and there are plenty of opportunities to merge with the opposite sex."
Angry Single Blogger is in Paris, where the men are a bit more upfront about what they want.
Ah! Here I am in Paris, my loves! I thought for the sake of my heart and sanity, I'd do an apartment swap with a woman here for a month and let the healing from my recent breakup begin. And it has begun… I think.
Are you Katniss Everdeen? Cuz you got my District in an uprising.

We apologize in advance for defiling children's literature for you.
Darn you, HowAboutWe! We wish we had come up with this first. In honor of Dr. Seuss's 108th birthday, they composed some clever rhyme-y pickup lines in his honor. Not to be outdone, we made up our own.
These YouTube gems are flipping the bar scene and dating as we know them on their heads.
What would happen if men and women switched gender roles, so that men were the ones getting hit on in the bar and spending their Saturdays obsessively shopping, and women were the ones who had to pay cover, use cheesy pickup lines and leave the toilet seat up?
New study also says aggressive, prehistoric pick-up tactics work for those seeking casual sex.
Ladies, how do you prefer to be approached by a man? There is surely no single answer to such a question—unless, of course, you're talking about a one-night stand, according to a new study.

Classic gentleman or closeted creep? There might not be much of a difference.
The Nice Guy question had always vexed me, because I'm Nice—but really only in comparison to some of these hammers and nails I see in bars, aggressively hitting on you women.

Can't get a date? Retire your bad flirting technique.
One night, over a shared bottle of wine, she was explaining the finer points of her technique, when a cute guy walked over and poked his head between us. "What are you drinking?" he asked. "What does it look like we're drinking?" I answered snottily. That night was filled with valuable lessons.
