Pick-up lines work

I did something I haven’t done in ages the other day.  I used a pick-up line on a man! I couldn’t let the opportunity to flirt slip away so I had to act fast.  I was at the opening gala for the Atlanta Film Festival last week when I noticed a very handsome guy.  Once I saw no ring (or tan line for one!), I shimmied his way after grabbing a second glass of Pinot aka liquid courage.   I said something about how he looked like a good challenge I could get into. I can’t even remember the exact words.  It didn’t matter that much!

It was enough to make him chuckle and say something like, “Oh really” and we spent the next couple of minutes chatting it up. I really should pick men up more often, it’s scary at first but getting a great response is an adrenaline rush! Ladies, do you use pick up lines on men? What has worked for you? Does it bother you when men approach you with a pick up line? What if it’s a really great one?

Guys, do you ever get approached by women in public? Do they use pick up lines on you? What is the best line a woman has used on you?

Ladies, the best pickup line you could use is “You Wanna?”. Works every time.

HAPPY MUNDANE MONDAY’S

Can’t really say i’ve ever used a ‘pick-up’ line on a dude before. I simple compliment on their smile, piece of jewelry, or whatever seems to return a great response as well.

Does “Hey, Haven’t seen you in a while” qualify as a pick up line?

other than that I would have to say I’m not a pick up line girl. I’m like slim, offer a nice compliment and go from there

I had a GRRRRRRREAT weekend! :)

i wish more ladies would use pickup lines, it would save the guy the trouble of having to come up with something clever. i’ve had a few ladies use pickup lines on myself and nice to have that change in customs.

When you give a guy a compliment, you’ll be surprised by the warm response you get…even if it never leads to the exchange of phone numbers convo

Here is my greatest pickup line ever (for me anyway). I must paint the scenario first. It was about three years ago. I was in the parking lot at the fitness center. I had just gotten a new car (well new to me), and this cute guy parks beside me. At the time I didn’t realize he was as fine as he was. Anyway, when he gets out of the car, I say ‘if you don’t hit my car, i won’t hit yours’. That’s not the pick up line, I was being sincere. It was my shiny new silver car. He said something about his car can’t match mine, and he kept walking in front of me. I then noticed how fine (ladies, I mean fine) he was.

The next day, I managed to work out over beside him while he was lifting weights. He asked if I saw the ‘ding’ that he put on my car. I smiled and said ‘why, are you marking your territory?’. He smiled, and it was on from there for about 6 months. But you can’t hold such a fine creature down.

I’m not really a fan of pick-up lines but if I use whatever I feel at that point in time will elicit a response. My personal tried and true pick up lines, or better yet methods of approach, include:

-saying excuse me Miss but you dropped this, while simultaneously handing her a slip of paper that I’d just scribbled my name and number on. Obviously, the point isn’t to get her to take it and call but to start a convo….I started that back in college.

-scribbling something silly on a napkin that requires a response and putting the check boxes for yes and no. It always gets a chuckle at the very least and I go from there.

Also, I can tell if a woman put extra effort into what she is wearing and if she is “feeling it”. Women tend to hold their head higher and stride when this is the case. I merely say “you look nice” and then compliment them on something in particular they are wearing rather it be their shoes or a ring/necklace. As far as women using pick-up lines I really don’t get that. Most women that approach me are pretty straightforward with “Hi I’m (fill in name)” and we go from there.

Morning all…

Ahhh…. you go get ‘em, Wise. Although… not to burst your bubble over the clever line too much, but it really wouldn’t have mattered what you said to the dude. (Well, unless you said something like “I’ve got explosive diarrhea” — that probably would have scared dude off) :-) Besides, he was probably too busy picturing you nekkid to hear what you were saying anyway… ;-) :lol:

But seriously, even if we (guys) are not interested in a woman, if she’s brave enough to approach us, we’ll at least be nice enough to chat her up a bit. Your ego is safe with us… ;-)

i’m swiss – i like catching dudes off guard with compliments or out of the way comments and then just walk away. Leaves them smiling with their chest poking out just a little bit more. Saw this guy in Target one day and I could tell he worked out. I complimented him on his arms (i loooooveee nice arms) I was like, keep up the good work, because it definitely is paying off. Then I walked away. When I got far enough away, I could see he was still wearing that smile. ;-)

Good Morning All,

I have never used a pick up line on a guy. Not my thing. Heck I think I figured out after my convo with post office dude. I have major trust issues..or I could be too quirky for my own good. Either way..pick up lines..uhhhh they throw me off balance which is what I guess they are designed to do.

Corporate Sales chick I know told me that I have great looking teeth. I think it’s kind of weird, she keeps looking at them. I don’t think it’s a line to hit me up so much, but it’s odd.

I’ve always thought it was a little weird when a chick would open a conversation by telling me about how my _______________ looks. As if I’d say, ‘nice rack! They’re so blankety blank!’ Just a bit weird.

How about just a normal conversation starter? Hi, I’m so-and-so, nice to meet you. Yakety yak, say things that are real. No?

Pick up lines…not really a fav thing of mine…but I will admit that any opening line that can tickle my funny bone might get a few attention points…as I do not really respond to any lines that address my physical appearance…I am arrogantly ego satisfied in that area…lol…so make me laugh

“Slim, you are so right, men love to have their ego stroked, and unexpectedly just really does something to them”

@ PrincessNik — Who doesn’t like having their ego stroked — man or woman? Men just don’t receive as many compliments in general as women, so maybe we appreciate them a bit more when we do…? Of course, we also don’t have to deal with chicks that disgust us trying to pounce on our wangs 100 times a day, so maybe we’re more receptive to compliments… :lol:

Slim — Aww… see, now I’m sure people are having positive thoughts about you all the time. I’m having a positive thought about your CT right now, as a matter of fact… :lol:

A pick up line only works when its personal.. All the canned pickup lines are ridiculous.. You have to make it for her.. And it cant be sooo corny and lovey dovey.. My pick up line is always about the shoes. If thats whats you wanna call them.. I just call it a conversation starter.. Most women are eger to talk about themselves and have someone just listen..

Morning
There is nothing new under the sun. So, however “original” you think your line is, the other person has probably heard it 1000 times. If something about someone catches your eye and you decide to compliment them on it, chances are others have complimented them on the same thing. All that aside, I think most people can appreciate humor. If a woman approaches me, I’m always gracious, even if I’m not interested.

Guys are shy by Nature. No pickup lines are needed, but just approaching a guy to start a conversation will go a long way.

DreamsMaterialize @ 10:44: I agree that there is NOTHING new under the sun but it could be new to THAT person. For example, the song (by Treysongs?) about having “invented sex” was laughable to me as a seasoned vet but to someone either just beginning to pop cherries or just getting their cherry popped it may have real meaning. Yet, I do agree 100% with you there is nothing new under the sun.

I approached a guy this past Saturday night…but I did not use a line. I just said, “hi handsome…what’s your name” and it was on from there. The hottie and I spoke and exchanged numbers and hung out yesterday! I have approached a guy if I smell a cologne that is tantalizing. I will do as Toucan Sam and follow my nose. Then I will tell him that he smells good (as I sniff his necK I ask him his name and it flows from there.

I hate the idiots that think that “complimenting” me on my a$$, thighs or my rack is a real compliment. No you d1ldo…that is only a compliment coming from a man I am dating or a guy I am friends with. Well ok I have had gay men compliment me and it doesn’t bother me but it’s different with a guy who is actually trying to get with me.

Hola!

I am not big on pick up lines, but I will speak from the heart. If I see something on a guy that looks great I compliment. But, then again I am the type to give out compliments when I see something nice. I was at AS last weekend and this lady was rocking some bad fuchsia heels, shoot they were out of this world and I had to let her know. Once I said something several ladies said I was thinking the same thing, but none of them spoke up.

Men are NOT ’shy by nature’, that’s absurd. I’d say that as a generalization, the opposite is true. A man that is too shy to introduce himself and start a conversation — whether it’s with a chick, to go to the kitchen to complement the chef, to network in real life and go get the job or the sale or whatever, etc. — is a wimp. Things like that are due to poor upbringing, your father should have taught you to be unafraid of expressing yourself, and of being a part of your surroundings, to include the whole world.

Shy by nature! My foot.

Hey Princess

Benny Mardones “If I could Fly” Usher used the music moreso, than the lyrics….I used to love that song, so when I heard Usher I was like he sampled hard on this one. :grin: I like Usher’s take on it.

If I could fly
I’d pick you up
I’d take you into the night
And show you a love
Oooooh, if I could fly
I’d pick you up
I’d take you into the night
And show you a love
Like you’ve never seen, ever seen
Yeah, Ooooooh….
