Just tip your cowboy hat and smile when you see the girl of your dreams. Then when you get her where you want her, THEN wink and say "hello darlin", or "howdy, sweet thing". We've got cowboys all over and these opening remarks are the classics whether country or city. I wouldn't do it in Paris, France...but what the heck, why not.

Well it has been a long time since I lived in Texas, but back then complimenting the hair do was a good way to start, most Texas ladies work a long time on their hair. It never worked for me, too much humidity and board straight hair LOL

Do you normally say "howdy"? If so, then sure try it. Otherwise, just be yourself. Don't say things you wouldn't normally say, you sound fake.

Plus, aren't howdy and hello pretty much the same thing? Just use one or the other, not both.
