I’ve got a fun little dating book to give away here to the readers of the Dating Weblog. It’s called Get Your Dating Game On and has great tips on how to present your best self while searching for the mate of your dreams.

Jennifer Worick, author of Get Your Dating Game On, has a wonderful description on her website:

Unless your perfect match is The Mailman or the plumber, Mr. Right won’t be appearing at your door anytime soon. So get out there-outside, out of bounds, outta sight. Just get out of the house! Get Your Dating Game On gives you all the information you need to brave the “single and ready to mingle” scene.

In the book she has a flirting “crib sheet,” tips for screening voicemail responses, conversation tools, and more.

I have a copy of this great book to give away. If you’d like to win, leave a comment on this post with the best opening line you’ve ever heard. It could be one you’ve used personally, one that someone else has used on you, or even something you’ve heard on TV or in the movies.

Leave your comment by Thursday, July 10th. I’ll select the best line and announce the winner the following day. (Sorry, I can only send the book to those in the U.S. or Canada.)

    2. July 2008 – 5:11 pmI was working at Wal-Mart as a cashier, and this guy came in my line. He said “If I had a barcode tattooed on me, you could keep inventory of me because you know i’d be yours forever.” After that, I just had to laugh. We ended up going out for 2 months!!!

    10. July 2008 – 1:04 amThis works for young and old guys alike: Guy: You look a lot like my first wife… (Girl will respond predictably with “You were married?” or simply “excuse me?” or “what?” to which guy responds, “Oh, I’ve never been married/didn’t say I’ve been married….” A big grin helps!) This line, executed well (charm required) will get the girl, or at least a coffee/lunch/dinner date. Best line ever!
