Mini-confession time: I absolutely love pick-up lines. I love the terribly cheesy, laugh-out-loud, there’s-no-way-you-can-take-it-seriously kind of lines (which, on occasion, turn into the I-can’t-believe-I-fell-for-that lines…oops). I’ve heard some “good” ones, myself, but also consulted outside experts (aka, my girl friends) to see what’s really being said. We came up with some gems:
(Note: I don’t recommend any of these and cannot vouch for their effectiveness, but they have been used.)
Guy: Is your shirt felt?
Guy: (rubs the girl’s sleeve) Well now it is.
- Wanna come upstairs and play video games?
- (at a frat house) I have Smirnoff Ice in my room if you want some.
Guy: Do you know how much a polar bear weighs?
Girl: No, how much?
Guy: I don’t know, but enough to break the ice!
- Hi, I play lacrosse.
- Wanna go to my room and play Trivial Pursuit? (To be fair, really anything that starts with “Wanna go upstairs/to my place/back to Fort Myer…” is of the same ilk.)
And, my old personal favorite:
- (whispered in my ear, like a secret) Girl, going out with me is like going out in the rain – you’re bound to get wet.
But yes, I said old personal favorite, which would imply that there’s a new favorite line in town:
Major points for making me laugh.
