They’re corny, unoriginal and the quickest way to turn a girl off: we’re talking about The Pick up Line.
But, guys, there are better ways to really get a woman’s attention. Use what you got and let your personality shine. If you have her number, text her something sweet. Be yourself. Be original And don’t use any of these pick up lines!
“Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?”
This is the most commonly used pick-up line in history. It’s safe to say this come-on should be retired ASAP. Besides, who really believes in love at first sight these days? If you want to get a gal’s attention, pay attention to her and your surroundings. In other words, if she’s online ordering coffee, ask her for a recommendation. If you notice her out on her regular morning jog, say, “good morning” and smile before striking up conversation.
“Your feet must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind all day.”
Maybe you mistook that for me running away? Instead, ask for her number. When you get to know her text her, “Thinking of you.” That will get her heart racing much quicker than this line. Showing your sweet and vulnerable side is a big turn on.
“Is your body from McDonalds because I’m loving it!”
Ha, okay! First of all, comparing our bodies to one of the most fattening fast-food chains in America is risky at best. Here’s a little tip gentlemen: if you are ever going compare a woman to any type of food or beverage (again, at your own risk), make sure it’s flattering and sounds sexy. Think strawberries, champagne, or any sweet fruit – not dough, grease and carbs!
“I may not be Fred Flintstone but I can make your Bedrock!”
A guy who uses this pick up line on a woman needs to take it back with him to the Stone Age where it (and he) belongs. Nothing is more unattractive than a guy showboating his skills in the bedroom; double negative if it’s an outdated come-on like this one. Less is more guys, less is more. Perhaps introduce yourself first and get to know the girl you’re interested in past her bra size. Then you just might be onto something.
“Feel my sweater, it’s made of boyfriend material.”
This pick up line is a great example of jumping the gun way too soon. Sorry fellas, but no good comes from a pick-up line that jumps right into “boyfriend material.” It screams desperation and will have us running toward the closest exit. Take it slow when approaching a woman you are interested in. Feel her out and see if she is vibing with you before you declare yourself “Best Boyfriend Ever.” You haven’t even gone on date yet!
“Excuse me miss, I appear to have lost my phone number, can I have yours?”
Fellas, if you really want to get a woman’s phone number, do so politely (and a compliment doesn’t hurt). Try: “Excuse me Miss (ask for her name), I noticed your beautiful smile from across the room and was wondering if I could get your number and call you sometime to ask you out on a date?”
“Hey Stranger/ Ay Yo Ma/What’s Good”
Greeting a real woman like this is the quickest way to get rejected. We do not find it attractive. We do not find it appealing. We do think that you need a dictionary – and some home training. A simple “Hello/Good Morning/How is your day?” will take you further than you can imagine.
At the end of the day, women remember the men who respect us and genuinely talks to us. So stop shouting out terrible cat calls or using cheesy pickup lines.
