Do pick-up lines ever work?

If you ever want to do a little “single” people watching, hang out at a sports bar or in the mall. You will probably notice the completely entertaining ways we approach one another.

I have seen women literally go out of their way to “bump” into a good-looking man (ok, that was actually me); I have even spotted a guy walk up and ask a woman if she wanted to fly to Las Vegas for the weekend!

Whatever the approach is, I always wonder if the person has ever used that pick up line before and more importantly, did it actually work?

Do you use pick up lines to do cold approaches? I have to say that the right line from the right man could probably work like a charm. Maybe they aren’t all bad!

What is the best/worst pick up line you have used on someone?

I would love to hear those “you had me at hello” stories that only seem to happen in the movies! Has someone ever had your attention (in a good way!) from the moment your eyes met? What did they say?

Um….speaking on just my own experience, I don’t belive so.
I always received corny pick up lines that make you cringe.
I prefer someone to just come up to me and say hello, blah, blah, blah…..
But as long as guys continue to get a reaction (good or bad) from pick up lines, they will continue to use them.

typo: Meant Kill me now.

1) Does this chick realize how annoying she is
2) After wearing weaves for so long, does one eventually start to believe that is their real hair
3)I will pay for her speech therapist if she would STOP making her voice winy like Nicki’s
4) Just because she is from Los Angeles (my coworker) does not make her a celebrity

I heard that the Starship off Tara Blvd got robbed this week. It’s so crazy because I was just there last Friday. Woooow…talking about close call because there was a suspicious looking young fellow that came in. The cashier chick had to repeat at least 3 times a request to see his ID. I suppose he must not have had it so he left out. My friend and I leave out and the dude is sitting in the car with what looked like 3 other dudes. The one on the passenger side (channeling TLC No Scrubs here) rolled down his window to speak. Next thing I know I’m getting a whiff of what they were blowing on. He then blows the horn at me to ask if my friend and I smoke. I quickly answered no, and got in my ride to leave.

g’morning….

of course pick-up lines work….the key is being able to think on your feet, and it, the line, being appropriate for the situation at hand…..

The only “Lines” that seems to have any effect are those w/good humor. Everything else just get’s lost in the wash.

Morning,

Yes, pick up lines work if:

1) you’re cute enough to get any with it; and

2) if they’re delivered wryly, with both parties in on the joke.

Good morning.

I think pickup lines work. Some are very clever and immediately illicit a smile! Now, the corny ones like “Is Mr. Whipple willing to share” makes me want to throat punch someone!

Pimpin!

Pick-up lines seem to be the more unatural approach to initial conversation. Unless, there’s bonafide comedy within the line to break the ice, be prepared for shame upon thy face! Being natural is the safest bet, b/c you should know exactly who you are and be confident in that. And look, stop being so critical of people from the jump…we all like people who are down to earth!

Keep it Pimpin!

I am – I was really just tagging along with a friend of mine while she picked some things up for her trip to the cabins with her hubby. So I wasn’t looking for anything. I would prefer to re-up on some adult novelties once i’m in something waaaayyyyy more serious of a committment. However, we also went to a lingerie store and I enjoyed trying on some outfits for fun. lol
