Pickup lines: The good, the bad, and the ones so ridiculous they might work

Any flirt will tell you: A good pickup line said at the right time can be a great conversation starter. But how do you come off clever and not clueless? The trick to pulling off a pickup line is never taking it seriously. You want to show off your charm and wit with a wink. You want to make the person laugh, not cringe. And you want to say it with breezy confidence—yes, that’s a thing—so practice with some of these.

Three words of advice that can change everything: Believe in yourself

Confession: Sometimes, at the gym, we get self-conscious. And sometimes we compare our body to other bodies. We’ve even considered bailing on our favorite boxing class because we were afraid our bruises would be a turnoff. Can you relate?

To gain a little perspective, here are some wise words from female athletes—and a few celebs and authors—who know something about strength, body image, and believing in yourself. We hope you get inspired to embrace what you’ve got and do what you want.
