If you’ve ever been to a bar, or anyplace for that matter, that has a bunch of singles looking to meet someone, you’ve probably heard more than a few pick-up lines. Some are great, some are cheesy, some are pure brilliance, but then there are those that are straight-up lame.
But the actual pick-up line aside, if you’re going to go home with someone or give them your number, you’ll probably decide with or without the line. Although for some people it helps because it shows effort and initiative! Or something.
The most recent pick up line I’ve heard, that was both lame and lacking in sense, was the following:
He: “I think we should finish what we started at the bar the last time I saw you.”
Me: “What did we start?”
He: “Oh, you know.”
Me: “I stopped in to say ‘hi’ to a friend, and you happened to be there. That was it.”
He: “We had chemistry. So we’re going to go home and finish what we started.”
Whether or not that’s his go-to line or we did have some sort of chemistry I missed, will remain a mystery to me. I also don’t know if it was the words, his sparkling blue eyes or the way he kissed, but he won me over. Honestly, he didn’t need a line.
I asked a handful of women I know for the the lamest pick-up lines they’d heard that actually worked on them. Not surprisingly, there weren’t many that had people running home with anyone. But the few I did collect are pretty bad, which makes them kind of awesome.
