Pick-up lines are hard: At worst, they can be mortifying, offensive and creepy; at best, pity-inducing. Yet men still persist in using them for whatever reason. Unless you really know what you’re doing, don’t try to use any of these corny and really stupid, pickup lines.
20 -That dress would look great on the floor next to my bed.
This line is most used when a guy is looking for a booty call.
19- Save water. Shower with me.
Again, another line guys use for a booty call.
18- Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?
This line was actually used in a cell phone commercial which makes it even worse when guys actually use it on the ladies.
17- Are your legs tired because you’ve been running through my mind all night.
Legs. The third body part that guys talk about and focus on when they see a lady that interests them pass by. But if we are going to talk about the pick-up line, this just again focuses on trying to get the booty call without thinking that is how you sound when you use this.
16- I’m trying to rearrange the alphabet so that U and I are together.
This has to be one of the corniest pick-up lines ever!
15- Excuse me, I think you have something in your eye. Nope, it’s just a sparkle.
This line may even make a woman smile, but a smart woman knows what the guy is trying to achieve when this comes out of his mouth.
14- Hey, I lost my phone number … Can I have yours?
This line just shows that guys don’t even hear how dumb they sound when they open their mouths.
13- I lost my teddy bear, can I cuddle with you?
This is a warning that you are near a creepy stalker. Don’t look at him or answer him, just get up and run… and keep running!
12- Kiss me if I’m wrong but dinosaurs still exist right?
Ugh. Another lame line guys used to get any action they can! Seriously the next guy I hear use this needs to get slapped… across the head. You can say that you saw a mosquito.
11- Well, here I am. What were your other two wishes?
Can a guy who uses this line be any more obnoxious? I would sarcastically answer, well, my other two wishes are that you go away.
10- Did you have lucky charms for breakfast? Because you look magically delicious!
I don’t know why a guy thinks this is a cute and innocent way of flirting with a girl, because it is not. It’s far from being cute and it’s far from being innocent. When a girl says that she is magically delicious, she’s being cute and flirty. But when a guy says it, he just wants to score.
9- So do you believe in love at first sight, or do you want me to walk by again?
Most women still want to believe in love at first sight, but most women aren’t that stupid to believe in a corny line like this.
8- I just noticed you looking at me across the room. I’ll give you a minute to catch your breath!
48% of men actually rely on pickup lines regularly. And this is one of the worst lines that come out of their mouths!
7- I’m gonna have to put you on my “To Do” List!
There’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance. And the majority of women cite being overly cocky as their number one turnoff. Use this line and watch her walk away.
6- If I said you have a gorgeous body, would you hold it against me?
It’s 1 A.M., you are at a bar and a drunk guy walks up to you. Chances are that he will spew an insulting line like this one.
5- I was trying to have a guys’ night out and you just totally ruined it by being so cute.
For men, there’s a fear of rejection or looking stupid. Well, if they use this line they have achieved both!
4- Can I get a picture of you so I can show Santa what I want for Christmas?
This line only works for women. And a recent survey suggests that 95% of guys claim that they like a woman to make the first move.
3- What do you like for breakfast?
Guys think this is cute. I think it’s a booty call. Period.
2 -So, how many kids do you want?
I understand that guys are trying to be creative, instead of flat out just trying to have a normal conversation, but to come out with this line indicates that that guy doesn’t even care about who the woman is, but rather more focused on what she looks like.
1- You don’t need a bodyguard. You need a bootyguard.
The Number rule of trying to get a woman’s phone number: Don’t reference a woman’s booty the first time meeting her especially using a “joke” like this. You may think it’s funny, creative, and complementarity. But she may think otherwise.
You don’t have to be a wiseguy to make yourself instantly irresistible. Instead confidence gets the girl. Just be yourself and start a conversation. The first two minutes of any conversation is the indication that you might have something or you’re wasting your time. Once you get her taking, don’t hand a girl your business card. You don’t want an interview, you want a date. And if you use Facebook as a verb, you’ve already lost. If she does give you her phone number, do the unthinkable and call. Don’t text, call. Then you have struck gold.
