Pick-up Lines for the Poor and Desperate
Who doesn’t need a pick-up line? Frankly speaking, I doubt if anyone uses it successfully though. Just a one-liner to strike up a conversation and score a girl sounds too good to be true in my opinion. For starters, I doubt if it would work except on a drunk blonde maybe but then do you really need a pick-up line for that? Even if it did work, would you honestly like to date someone who is easy enough to fall for a cheesy pick-up line?
Regardless of that, pick-up lines are amusing enough and carry an immense potential for extracting a laugh if nothing else. Be it Howard Walowitz hitting on Summer Glau in Big Bang Theory or just anybody using the line “Is your name Summer, because you are hot?”(bonus marks if her name is called Samar), this line has been around for years.
Let’s just look at what have been some popular arrows in the quiver of pick-up lines.
1. “Do you have a map? Because I think I am lost in your eyes.”
This could potentially result in a brutal cold stare that would clearly be an indication of how the girl just wants you to get “lost” or maybe she’ll just give you a pitiful smile at your feeble attempt.
2. “Life without you is like a broken pencil….pointless”
Isn’t necessarily a typical pick-up line but usable nonetheless. However, it can draw a fair comeback that could go something like you really do need a sharpener, to sharpen your wits.
3. “Is your last name Gilette because you are the best a man can get?”
Doesn’t a girl love to be compared to a foaming gel? I really don’t think we have a winner in this one, Unless of course she really hasn’t heard the next one.
4. “Was it just an earthquake or did you just rock my world”
Could go really badly for you if she just blamed it on an earthquake or actually did rock your world via a slap, which is really very unrealistic but it sounds delectable to write about!
5. “I am lost; will you take me home with you?”
If you can manage to pull off a puppy dog face or an innocent cat face, this could be a money-winner according to the standards of pick-up lines.
6. “You must be tired because you have been running in my dreams all night”
I doubt if anyone hasn’t heard this one before. I can’t imagine myself using this neither do I think anyone would fall for it. The only running she might end up doing will be any direction away from you!
7. “Are you a parking ticket? Because you got fine all over you”
Frankly, I like this one. But honestly, this doesn’t increase its feasibility. Let’s just she isn’t likely to park her car in your driveway after this line…
