Also, two other things DoG
a) be a stereotypical alpha male
You'll be hated, you'll be yelled at, but for whatever reason a lot of girls like them more than the guys they say they like (charming, caring, sensitive, funny=FRIENDZONE). If you're naturally a really nice guy then you're ****ed. Go rob an old lady pronto.
b) get a girlfriend
ANY girlfriend. Well okay, within reason. Doesn't have to be serious, in fact, better if its not. The purpose is to show other girls you're taken. Why? Because for half of them, something they can't have is almost irresistable. You know how all the cool girls are always taken, usually by some douche, and you completely love them? Works the other way too. It also means you can get close to them without them thinking you're just trying to get into them (which you probably are, but they don't need to know that.) You want them in love with you first.
I sound like an asshole, yes, but from observation and possible experimentation it seems to work.
Another plan is the age old go out, get drunk, get them drunker, proceed.
Going out and meeting other birds is good too because it shows you that she isn't the only one out there and you'll be less whipped because of it(you should be). She's got a boyfriend so time you met other chicks.
I've always wondered about the fairer sex's predilection for ****s.
I read in a book (so it must be true) that the base evolutionary desire of women is to find a partner that can provide for thier offspring. Likewise, in days of yore men chose a partner based on how likely they were to produce and care for healthy sprogs - which is why we put so much emphasis on sweater puppies and curves.
But bikies, abusive partners and particularly dense jocks don't give any hint of being able to be able to provide. Yet they score, and frequently. It's a royal ****er of a paradox.

The non-serious thing is a good start, but even that has to end before you proceed. Chicks that are worth their salt don't like blokes who do the dirty on a previous partner, knowing that it's a pretty solid form guide to go off.
'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

Likewise, there's a quite compelling argument about the Chinese work ethic - that it was gained through ancient rice-harvesting techniques which were completely manual and bloody onerous to boot (putting it kindly). This was never quite eliminated through evolving lifestyles, so it was passed down through successive generations.
If you Google 'Malcolm Gladwell', 'outliers' and 'work ethic' there's a much deeper case put forth.

Okay seriously, the field is a haven for bull**** artists. Probably more what I'm trying to say.
EDIT: Deep down, I'm terrified the book is true too. If so, I'm ****ed.

"I'm glad he felt comfortable being himself," said brother Chris Scanlon, 39. "But when you're in full-blown mid-30s-crisis mode with misogynist tendencies and a desperate, neurotic need for approval, maybe 'the real you' is not the best thing to put forward."
According to reports, Scanlon's profound insecurity led him to monopolize the first 45 minutes of conversation, talking about nothing but himself. Worse, his inability to get over his divorce prompted him to meticulously detail every phase of his failed marriage.
Nothing worse than the bloke above, tbh.
No, not you Burgey
Scanlon sounds like a right ****.
I don't reckon there's that much wrong with me, tbh. I can hold a conversation with a girl, make them laugh, etc.
The thing is I care too much. I think the situation with the girl in the park was me just not giving a **** anymore after the events of the girl with the b.f. But I felt like a **** for probably coming on too strong on the first date.
Thing is, two of my previous g.f.s I got with on the first date.
I emailed the park girl just now tbh.
