One of the most underrated ways to meet girls who are down to hook up is smoking. This is especially true in Korea, where a lot of people smoke. While almost all Korean men smoke, a lot of the women do too, but there’s more of a social stigma on them for it. A lot of Korean men get very judgmental and might even yell at a Korean girl for smoking, so being cool and friendly about it is a big plus.
Cultural considerations aside though, smoking is a great pickup tool for several reasons. The first is that it’s the world’s greatest opening line. There is no language barrier to worry about if you’re asking for a lighter or offering one, and it gives you immediate common ground from which to start a flirty conversation. The other great thing about this is that it works with any style of game, at any place or time of day. On top of all that, if a girl smokes in this age of information, she is fully aware of the health risks and problems it causes and still doesn’t care. This is the same kind of girl that likely will have no problem going home with a stranger tonight to see what kind of trouser snake he’s packing.
These days, smoking is banned indoors all across Korea, but this can work to your advantage in a great way. Most Korean bars now have a smoking room slightly off of the main room, so you can’t sit and have food or drinks with your smokes, and it’s more of an in and out spot for smokers. This is perfect because if you spot a hot girl in the smoking room or if you see her on her way in, you can easily be there with her and she’s already isolated from your friends. Think about that, she already did half the work for you! At that point, all you have to do is provide interesting conversation and put on your clown hat, and you can easily convert a 5 minute conversation into a kiss, or at the least a number.
In terms of day game, or really any time anywhere kind of game, the same basic rules apply. There are a few places in Korea that you can’t smoke on the street, most notably the main strip of Gangnam in Seoul along with a few select neighborhoods and beaches, but for the most part it’s fair game everywhere. Even on college campuses, they have smoking sections for the students, which can be a real gold mine if you play it right.
I had a girl run pickup game on me once in a smoking section on a local college campus. She came up and asked for a cigarette, which is the classic pickup move in this situation, and proceeded to ask me about what I was doing that night, as it happened to be Friday. I invited her out with me to the bar I was going to later, and we scored the same day bang.
The old adage is as true as ever – if she smokes, she pokes. Don’t let this opportunity slip past you, there is a real gold mine of pussy out there just waiting for you to ask for a light.
