We get it guys, talking to women is difficult, especially when we tend to run in packs and gossip about you incessantly. However, there is no room for cheesy pickup lines. Women aren’t all that interested in your pithy retorts and you’ll likely get a poor reaction that can run the gamut from an eye roll and polite laughter to a drink in the face; maybe even a drink you just bought for her. Here are the top five worst pickup lines, and for those of you slow learners, I’ll explain why.
#1: “Your body’s name must be Visa, because it’s everywhere I want to be.”
It’s never a great idea to bring up your plans for getting in the sack with a woman in your opening line. There are a million ways to compliment a woman without being so obvious about your intentions. Besides, if you’re male and hitting on us, we know the likely follow through is the bedroom.
#2: “Did you fart, cause you blew me away.”
Bathroom humor is best saved for your buddies. End of conversation.
#3: “You must be tired because you’ve been running through my head all night.”
This one might have been cute once upon a time next to a locker in a faraway junior high hallway, but it has surely lost its charm by now. This is the oldest line in the book and will likely not even solicit a giggle.
#4: “Is your daddy a terrorist? Because baby, I think you’re the bomb.”
I have to admit that this one is pretty clever, but in today’s uncertain world, mentioning a bomb in a public place is a very bad idea. Come to think of it, the word ‘terrorist’ doesn’t illicit a great response either.
#5: “Do you work for UPS? I could have sworn I saw you checking out my package.”
Only use this one if you’re ready for some sort of response pertaining to the unimpressive small size of one’s package.
I understand that without an arsenal of cheesy one-liners, some men might be lost in the world of dating, but please don’t despair. I’ll be following up next week with the top 5 best pickup lines.
