An approach I have used that has often been succesfull Is to say "excuse me Ive just had this short haircut but I wasnt brave enough to go for the skin cut, do you think I should ?". The reply would normally be yes/no/maybe. I then go onto to ask if she prefers men with hair long or short, and does she like goatee's etc.

I'd like to approach random girls at the mall or whatnot, but I am having a hard time coming up with stuff that I think doesn't sound lame. Everyone just gives out stupid advice like, just be yourself or go up to her and compliment her on something she's wearing. If I go up to strange women in the hopes of getting her number, I'm not going to go about it in a lame, contrived, scripted way. It's going to be in a ballsy and different way.
Of all the things I've read and heard my favorite one that I kind of made up would be to say, 'Hey do these shoes make me look like Ryan Gosling?' It's random and probably not something your average hottie has heard from guys that are trying to talk to them. I'd also consider using really bad pick-up lines, but I would make it obvious that it is totally in jest.
Anyone got any good advice for talking to random girls at the mall?

Catchy lines? Aint gonna happen my friend.
One thing. Confidence.
No offense, but i assume that you are under 21 because you are asking about finding girls in a mall instead of a bar. That's fine. Don't let some of the other posts fool you malls are fine. Girls often travel in packs at malls and sometimes approaching packs can be easier than trying to spark up a conversation with a solo girl. Best to try when they are sitting or standing somewhere rather than in motion. Be confident but not cocky. Girls really love to talk about themselves. Try not to talk about trivial things like the weather, politics or sports. Get them talking about themselves and only talk about yourself if they ask, and when they do, keep it short. Keep them wanting more. Seem intriguing but not wierd - dont make the puzzle too easy or too difficult to solve. As i said earlier, it can be easier to talk to groups because the odds are better that one of them will find you interesting or cute. Being funny is always a good thing as long as you can do it without coming off cheesy or desperate for a laugh. Say something like,
"Avoid Hotdog on a Stick today ladies, i think i saw 'Napolian Dynamite' not wash his hands after returing from the bathroom. Dont know about you but Hep B on a stick just isn't my style".
If you have friends who know girls, give that a go too. Don't be afraid to approach girls. I don't mean to brag, but i have actually walked up to a girl on the street of Sacramento CA and said, "Feel like a beer and some sex?" and it worked. She wasn;t a keeper or anything, but you get the idea - it's not what you say, it's how you say it. Best of luck friend.edit on 4-5-2012 by ilikestarz because: (no reason given)
