It's Halloween. Hit on me.

He wraps his arm around your waist, promising to protect you from any ghosts or goblins on this spooky night.

You roll your eyes: "Please. The only thing that's scary tonight is your Spandex-made costume."

Beware the Halloween pickup artist.

The holiday makes singletons navigate the meet market with more confidence than usual. That's largely due to the alter ego-inspired freedom that comes with wearing a costume.

There's also a larger tolerance for cheesiness when it comes to pickup lines. Believe me, the one-night offer is difficult to refuse. I once called a guy in a zombie costume "dead sexy."

Then, of course, there's the fact that women are parading around in even fewer clothes than usual.

Check out these four Halloween pickup moves. My favorite? The haunted house grope.

Also, don't forget to memorize these costume-specific Halloween pickup lines.

Meeting your soul mate on Halloween is great.

Just remember: One day, you'll have to tell your grandchildren you met the love of your life while dressed as Princess Leia.
