Ten Really Bad Pick-up Lines

Jared Hindman

The title of my recent post (Hey Baby, What's Your Sign?) prompted thoughts of cheesy pick-up lines that you ladies must have to deal with from time to time. So I did a little digging and found some I like. And no, I've never used any of these myself.

It's been proven that the most effective line to break the ice is "Hello." (duh). More guys should try this sometime. Oh, and seasoning it with a healthy dose of sincerity and respect never hurts either.

Some of my faves:

-"Are you lost? Because heaven is a long way from here."
-“You must be tired because you’ve been running through my head all night.”
-“Can I have your phone number? I seem to have lost mine.”
-"Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk past again?”
-"Great legs, what time do they open?"
-"I lost my teddy bear, will you sleep with me?"
-"You must be wearing astronaut pants, 'cause your ass is out of this world."
-"There are 206 bones in the human body. Do you want another one?"
-"Excuse me, I'm lost. Can you give me directions to your house?"
-"You know what would look good on you? Me."

Unfortunately there are lots more out there to choose from, so most likely this isn't the end of the subject. :)


  1. I've actually gotten the one with the phone number, Im sadly to say. hehe.

  2. I guess it could have been worse, eh Melanie? There were some other lines that made me laugh, but I decided not to put them on here.

    Most would have resulted in the guy walking funny for a while. :)

  3. I had a friend who used, "I have an 8-inch tongue and can breathe through my ears" to pick up girls, many, many years ago.

    I've had, "Can you help me out with something?"

    I asked, "With what."

    The response was, "With testing the springs on my new mattress."

    Though there are others, but I'd have to sit down and think of some of the stranger ones attempted on me back in the day...

  4. Oh and the one that was heard countless times in the Goth scene... "nice boots... wanna f*ck?"

  5. aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh hahaha I have a good one. Last night Vanessa and I went out for a drink and some guy came up to me as asked if I had just been at "Sour Apple" in Hollywood. So I said no and told him he had me confused. He introduced himself and tried to talk to me, but you know... there was nothing there. 20 minutes later he came back and told me he made the whole thing up and was just looking for a reason to talk to me.


    Good times!

  6. Oh, just thought of a line I heard in Holland:

    Do you have a little Dutch in you?
    Would you like some?


  7. The scary thing is, these lines work sometimes. Rarely lead to anything meaningful, but that's not usually the goal.

    I always liked the line, "Spend the rest of your life with me tonight."

    Cindy, the reason a guy would make up a story like probably stems from insecurity. He was afraid that if he just came up and introduced himself (making it obvious that he just wanted to meet you) you wouldn't find him interesting. Hence the backstory.

  8. Another one I've heard a few variations on over the years...

    "Nice ______ (dress, jeans, skirt, whatever) - it would look great on my floor."

  9. I recognized all of these from my clubbin' days long ago- oh the memories.

  10. Pretty sad that these should be so familiar to so many, huh? lol
