Way to rub that cousin thing in, bro.
It's really not that hard to pick up a chick, guys. Soften her up by talking to her for a while, then ask her name. It's a rookie mistake to ask her name up top! Ease her into it. Okay, time to make sure she is not your cousin. If you need to excuse yourself and call your mom, don't be shy. It's better to find out now that mom has a brother she never talks to than on your wedding day to the chick.
Once you've confirmed you're not cousins, come back into the room all smiles. That's when you make your big move: ask her to go for a walk to the sandbar. Presumably, the "sandbar" is some sort of beach-side concession stand. Romantic. Very nice. Now this is key: DO NOT BUY HER ANYTHING. Just walk there.
When you've both had your fill of looking at the sandbar, walk her home and say "good night." You don't want to stay out too late because tomorrow you're going to have to do it all over again.
