I've used this line time and again over the past few years, "Tall women are worth the climb." I'm 5'8" and for some reason lots of gorgeous taller women have been into me over that period, despite the progressive hair loss, and those are all I have dated. Part of the reason I decided to shave it off last week was because they could see it so well and it apparently didn't bother them so I figured what the heck why not. Ironically, the last few weeks I've started dating a shorty - which I prefer, mostly because they are easier to toss around, their legs don't get in the way as much and I like getting stuff from high shelves for them. :^) She's on a trip and has no idea I did this. Boy is SHE going to be surprised lol.
Here is my best tip: I really don't use lines. I think most women think they are lame. Just be real and be yourself. What I have done is made friends with LOTS of women, which are scarce around the SF bay area relative to where I grew up. Most guys I know aren't good at this because they can't get past the sex part. You must resist (I can find all sorts of reasons not to be TOO interested in most women) and be a true friend - even if they want to, which will invariably happen in lots of cases if you are halfway attractive and not a door mat. Over time you will meet a lot of potential dates though them. They will often chat you up without you knowing it - you'll find out from others later during pillow talk heh heh. Heck, you might even try approaching some and starting up a conversation with a totally platonic motive as practice - which will help you get over your lack of confidence. If you're like me you'll still get nervous sometimes though. Ok, ok, pretty much always haha. Fortunately I know so many now I rarely have to try hard, their friends just end up dropping into my lap so-to-speak.
Also, if you don't want a lot of pissed of girl 'friends' you had better be honest as to your intentions whatever they may be.
