If there’s one area that seems to confuse both men and women, it has to be dating. It seems that we have an entire industry devoted to teaching us how to date better, but it all boils down to one thing: meeting people. Of course, by that token, it also involves knowing what to say. That’s the hard part. Indeed, a lot of people really don’t know what they really want to say, and that means that there can be problems when you’re trying to get closer to someone that you really like.
Now, you could try to make something up, or you could just talk from the heart.
Unfortunately, what a lot of people do is turn to cheesy pick up lines that really don’t work. This causes troubles. And humor. But mostly troubles.
Speaking of cheesy pick up lines, we included 7 that really made us roll our eyes and laugh. Would you use these? Only if you wanted us to laugh at you. Go on, we could use something else to ridicule.
1. I’m Easy, How Are You?
We understand that this pickup line is supposed to be delivered in a cute way to make the other person laugh, but it ends up making you look absolutely foolish. This means that you really don’t want to use it.
Why? Well, in a nutshell, it makes it look like you’re available for a good time, and we don’t mean drinking hot chocolate and playing Monopoly. If you’re not ready for all of that, then you’re throwing mixed messages that’ll cause you to lose your target anyway.
2. Do You Have GPS On Your Phone?…
“…Because I keep getting lost in your eyes!”
It’s the natural punch line to a pick up line that just isn’t funny. It’s way too overplayed. There are too many that have heard it, and when you use pick up lines you look like you’re really trying too hard.
3. Hello I’m a Thief! …
“And I’ve come to steal your heart!”
My, what woman would be moved by this pickup line? We’re still not really sure.
4. I Think You Got Something In Your Eye…
“Oh wait, it’s just a sparkle.”
If we had a nickel for every time we heard a man say that, we would definitely be able to retire. It wouldn’t be as much fun as sending you crazy lists, but hey…we could retire. Just sayin’.
5. Do You Like Bananas or Blueberries
“…I just want to know so I know what type of pancakes to make you in the morning.”
This line assumes too much, which is why it fails so miserably. You look like a clown when you go out on a climb like this, because how do you really know that you’re going to get that person to meet back at your place, let alone stay the night?
6. If I Could Rearrange The Alphabet…
“…I would put U and I together.”
You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand what this one means. It’s about the most obvious pick up line. Maybe that’s why it fails so miserably. People want to make sure that you’re really thinking about them and being sincere, not just pulling out cheesy lines to throw around.
7. That’s a Nice Shirt….
“Can I talk you out of it?”
Unless you want to get slapped, you probably shouldn’t go with this. Even if you run into someone that is interesting in the same thing you are — you know what that “thing” is, we’re grownups here — you still need to approach them from a place of respect.
We know, we know — it sounds pretty darn ironic to try to tread lightly if you want sex and you figure the other person wants sex, but what if you’re wrong? If you’re too blunt, you might scare off the person that would have otherwise slept with you otherwise.
Overall, these cheesy pick up lines are pretty classic. Tell us — have you ever used a pick up line like these? Was one used on you? Did it work? No matter whether you’re new to pick up lines or you’ve pulled a few cheesy ones out of your pocket in dire situations, we really want to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to sound off in the comments!
