What are the best/worst/funniest pick-up lines you’ve ever heard/used/had used on you?
So I mentioned the pretend-you-are-strangers-in-a-bar game in an answer earlier, then almost immediately reached a spot in the fiction book I’m reading where a ghost who is clearly stuck in the 70’s tries to pick up this girl who has the unique ability to see ghosts and it cracked me up. His line was:
“Your name must be Lucky Charms because you’re magically delicious.”
That was so cheesy I considered opening wine! What great/terrible lines have you heard?
The one used on me the most, and it’s quite frequently, is, “Hey sexy lady, I want to take you home!” Or, “Hey sexy lady, you wanna come home with me?” -my husband, everytime he’s in or near a car and I am walking in the vicinity, it can be in our driveway, at a grocery store, at church, anywhere and everywhere.
I do appreciate the stories that have been shared. Thank you all.
Here’s a few more of the funny ones I was thinking of:
- Do like raisins? How do you feel about a date?
- If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put ‘U’ and ‘I’ together.
- Well, here I am. What are your other two wishes?
- Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?
Worst pick up ever came from a guy I came into contact with at work. He told me that the color I was wearing was perfect for me. I would have just accepted it as a compliment, but he then proceeded to clearly undress me with his eyes. At work. In front of a bunch of people. Ugh. If he’d thought the color was perfect, wouldn’t he want the dress to stay on? 😂
I was always a shy kid, teen, and young man. I was not a nerd though you wouldn’t know it by my carrier choices. As a teen and into college I was a popular enough athlete/jock type. There were plenty of girls around to date most of the time. I always thought my friends were kind and can’t recall that we every talked about girls with disrespect or with misogyny. We never made judgments about a girl’s personality or anatomy. We were not good men, and were very shallow and in all of that, I never had a pickup line. I would agree with SongOfAngels husband that “men are pigs” but add, “sometimes.”
When i was in the self checkout a man kept staring at me to the point where it was embarrassing and distracting. He said i reminded him or looked like a movie actress and then proceeded to keep staring while he also was checking out his groceries.
I usually try to think that these kind of things men say to me are innocuous but when i told my husband if it was a pick up he said “yes, men are pigs”
Other ones were a regular that i see at coffee that said “you can’t miss you coming” and he said i was about the prettiest thing he’s ever seen. I think he’s in his 60’s. i still see those as not a pick up but just a compliment but of course my husband would see it differently. Can’t remember the other ones.
I either totally miss subtle hints of a pick up line, or totally dismiss them, so they don’t stick in my memory. I don’t know if this would be a pick-up line, I hadn’t considered it so…. but I was once asked/told, “Why does God no longer allow for more than one wife? If He did, you’d be mine.” (Yes, he was married. Yes, he knew I was married and worked loosely with my husband. No, I never told my husband.)
This is my one and only, that I can think of. It struck me as very funny.
I had gone to a business place to pick up a check for DH. I walked in and the atmosphere was very tense and thick, and downright creepy. I don’t know what had happened, but I was very on edge, waiting for them to print that check. Finally, the manager brought it, hardly saying anything. He handed it to me and I looked it over. He wondered if it was alright. In an effort to lighten up the whole tense atmosphere, I said the only thing wrong with it as that it should have had my name on it. The manager and receptionist were thinking of redoing it, when I relieved them by saying, just kidding. The tenseness broke, they both laughed, and the manager said, if thats the case, than you and I will run away to Mexico. I walked out of there laughing. But, I still wonder what happened just before I got there.
