Pick Ups for Women to Use on Men (that men reported they liked) according to Cosmo In my experience, women's pick-up lines have usually been physical. Reaching by me for something with a slight (or firm) brush of her arm or breast, as though it's unintentional, works great at many levels. Hey, maybe it is unintentional. But I'd rather think of it as a pick up." "This contact happened after extensive eye contact (read: after obsessive staring on my part). One woman walked up to me and said, 'So, are we going out or what?' She and I went on to date for almost a year and are still very close friends." "This woman at a restaurant sent me a note via the waiter, to be delivered after she left, asking if I wanted to get coffee sometime and leaving her phone number. I loved it." "I was at a party and this very attractive, stylish Midwesterner, with whom I had a torrid three-month relationship after, approached me with a mischievous look in her eyes and a glowing smile and said, 'You look like a real challenge.'" "The best lines I've gotten have been at the park with my dog Marley. A dog at the park works ALL the time. I'm not talking about 'the guy with the cute puppy using it as a babe magnet' scenario either. My dog Marley is a very large German Shepherd mix with abnormally long legs. Women (as well as men) are always commenting on him. 'That's a big dog -- what breed/kind/mix is it?' or something like that. Follow-up is real easy after that."

Status in Mate Selection Rarely do we marry outside of our status. High status individuals who marry low status individuals usually do so out of choice while the lower status individual may want to marry up or out but is not the chooser of that circumstance. Socioeconomic status plays a larger role in mate selection than does race or ethnicity.
Marriage via Mate Selection Marriages of similar status tend to divorce less than marriages of dissimilar status. However, Fu found that potential mates directly compare and measure status when they choose each other, but once a marriage is formed, status of a spouse often works through other aspects of life to impact the marriage.

As gender roles become increasingly egalitarian, men may have begun to compete for high-earning women just as women traditionally completed for high-earning men. Men still marry down more than women do. We are marrying people more aligned with our socioeconomic status is increasing (1940 to present). There are brief changes (up and down) in these trends, however, the 1940 and 1950s trends have reappeared and the hiccups of the 1960s and 1970s have disappeared.
