Is Stalking Still Cute?
“If I followed you home, would you keep me?”
The idea of having some stranger follow her home probably won’t get her laughing like you’d hope.
“Do you know karate? Cause your body’s kickin!”
This line is still funny even though we learned it in high school. Too bad it never worked back then!
You Must Be a Razor?
“Is your last name Gillette? Because you’re the best a man can get.”
Any time you’re trying to pick someone up, avoid referring to them as something people can “get” or get with.
Must Be Tired
“You must be tired because you’ve been running through my head all night.”
Why has this one been around so long? When has it ever worked?
Call Me Tonight
“People call me [insert you name] but you can go ahead and call me tonight!”
This is basically the same as singing “Call Me Maybe” to a total stranger. That too is terrible.
My Next Girlfriend
“Do I know you? Cause you look a lot like my next girlfriend”
That line didn’t work in the movie Hitch and there is a reason. However, if Will Smith had been the one to say it, maybe it would have gone differently…
All I Want for Christmas
“If a fat man puts you in a bag at night, don’t worry I told Santa I wanted you for Christmas”
If the “man puts you in a bag” part didn’t send her running, hang on to her, she’s a keeper.
“Are you a parking ticket? Because you’ve got ‘fine’ written all over you”
You know why you’re single? It’s because you use lines like this.
Poetic and Sensitive
“If beauty were time, you’d be eternity”
This is a sweet line, and should you find yourself serenading a girl, go ahead and throw it in, otherwise, no.
Drink or Money?
“Can I buy you a drink or do you just want the money?”
Implying an attractive girl is for sale? What could possibly go wrong with that?
Love at First Sight
“Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk past again?”
The confidence can be pretty charming but it is almost impossible to pull this line off without sounding cheesy, unoriginal and arrogant. Then again, that’s probably why so many guys use it.
I’ve Lost My Number
“Can I have your phone number? I seem to have lost mine.”
If you have any chance to using this one, you either need to be famous, gorgeous or someone the girl actually knows already.
