The Pick Up Line

The Pick Up Line.... ah.... the very first impression one forms of you comes from this. Yet... so many have chosen to be insincere, corny, cocky and worst of all unconfident when using a pick up line.





TWELVE worst Pick up lines:

12. Pre-adult aged boy comes up to me, without even the offer of a drink or an introduction... and shoves his mobile phone in front of my face and says- "Can I have your number?" ( Ok, I was around 18 at the time)

11. If you were a new hamburger at McDonald's, you would be McBeautiful. ( Heard this one off a show on MTv.. cant remember which.)

10. "Jane, right?" And asshole trails you around the whole damn pub insisting that he knows you and your name is Jane!

9. If you've lost your virginity, can I have the box it came in?

8. Hey, did you fart? Because you blew me away! (WTF?!)

7. Haven't I seen you someplace before? (yeah.. that's why I don't go there anymore, you unoriginal Vule)

6. I'm bigger and better than the Titanic ... only 200 women went down on the Titanic. (oh... is that it? pity)

5. Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. Yes is the answer.

4. Hi, my name is Doug. That's "GOD" spelled backwards with a little bit of you in it. (Never.. NEVER use a pick up line which sounds pre-meditated and rehearsed. I picture you infront of you mirror every night practicing. L-O-S-E-R)

3. "Do you want to dance?"
"No"
"Well I guess a fuck is out of the question."

2. "Would you like to dance?"
"Sorry, I'm not interested. I only dance with my BF. "
"I'm sorry, you must have misunderstood me, I said you look fat in those pants"


And The WORST pick up line I've heard
*Drum Roll* Please....
1. "Do you work for FED EX? I saw you checking out my package." (This from a guy who probably uses two pairs of socks on a night out. Only one pair for his feet though).


Some pick up lines though.. have made me smile and not roll my eyes in disgust. They can be great conversation starters. Of course, it helps if you look like a nice guy and are attractive... in which case, you probably didn't need the pick up line in the first place. "Hello" would have worked fine.

Five Best Pick Up Lines (If you must)
yes, only 5.. beacuse they are rare. And I've not had many encounters with good lines. Maybe because I'm hard to please, or maybe because they generally just don't work.

5. Who's your friend? [most ( NOT ALL) women will take a keen interest in you if you show interest in someone she's with. This will intrigue her,as she will wish to know "hey, how come not me?"] ** RISKY** May blow up in your face.

4. The last time I saw you... I was dreaming.

3. Could you do me a favour and tell your boyfriend he’s a lucky man?

2. "So what haven't you been told tonight?" (Somehow, I find this flattering)

1. Did the sun come out ?... or did you just smile at me? (Awwwwww..*blush*)

  3. Oh... I like the number 1 pickup line best too - the sunny one!

    Hope you're having fun in the zoo, Holly, and get to teach Shakespeare. I wish I get to teach it too. *sigh.

  5. Hey Holly

    I visited BK last June and only posted narcisstic pictures here (haha)-

    http://literallysylvia.blogs.friendster.com/literally_syl/2005/06/index.html

    Some pics have gone missing, dunno why.

    But Fiji the Jap Rest was sure yummy and hygenic;
    - MBK is a great place to shop (B1 has got numerous shops selling custom-made jeans);
    - Chatuchak was hot and stuffy (if you can tolerate the heat and ppl to get a good bargain);
    - the night market (called the Sal-something Bazaar) has almost the same stuff as Chatuchak, but it's a much cleaner and well-ventilated place

    Do bargain with the tuk-tuk drivers because they DO raise the prices higher thrice of what it should be. The 1st night, one charged us for 100baht from the hotel to MBK, and the next day, I managed to get one for only 40baht, going the same distance.

    HAve fun there!

  8. you kidding me?? your top 2 worst pick-up lines are waaay better than your best ones.. although 'bests' no. 2 is pretty damn good.

    don't know if this counts as a line, but i always start conversations with strangers with:
    my name's _______, what's yours?
    works with friendly girls, don't care for the other types.

    can't decide if this is very bad or extremely bad, but i love it anyway:
    as long as i have a face, you have a place to sit on.

    =================================

    how've you been anyway? been too long..
