Science! That's the latest tool to help you pick women up: http://trib.al/bhTr7vg

Not entirely serious, as this excerpt from the article might suggest:

The skinner

Named for the discoverer of operant conditioning, this potentially-sinister-sounding technique involves providing a reward whenever a woman you find attractive displays positive behaviour towards you. This will cause her to associate this behaviour with reward, and engage in it more often, thus increasing her favourable actions toward you.

Typically, the reward you use should be a pleasant foodstuff such as sweets or chocolate. However, you shouldn't make your actions too obvious, or any positive association could be neutralised by suspicion or doubt. To prevent this, you should visibly provide these positive rewards to others. Ideally, do this with children, to demonstrate your willingness to engage with infants and triggering further positive associations with you via the female caring instinct. You will need to keep a large supply of rewards on your person, so a large coat with many pockets is advised.

It's well known that if there's one thing women can't resist, it's a man in a long coat offering sweets to children he doesn't know.
