The Art of Cheesy Pickup Lines

There are many different cheesy pickup lines out there and some are more likely to work than others. Pickup lines will only work on women that are light-hearted and interested in a male companion at that time in their life. The pickup line is designed to break the ice in a funny way and is not meant to be the secret phrase to get a woman by any means. Here is a list of pickup lines that are least likely to work-to the most likely. A great pickup line should be followed up by a great conversation.

  1. “Your face reminds me of a wrench, every time I think of it my nuts tighten up.” Okay, I picked this line to show a few things not to say to a woman! Never compare a woman to anything, especially another woman or a tool! If you do then you’re the tool. She is the one and only and all others shouldn’t even be noticed or noted and that includes what’s in your toolbox. Another problem is that this line refers to your genitals in a very abrupt way. So don’t pick this one unless you’re a 17 year-old grease ball.
  2. “Do you work for UPS? I could have sworn I saw you checking out my package.” This one is not as bad as the last, but only by a little bit. This is a bad example of a cheesy pickup line, because it comes off as way too cocky and it accuses of her looking at your genitals. Again with the genitals-don’t refer to them after five seconds of meeting someone! A frat boy after a twelve day binge could think of something better to say.
  3. “Let's have a party and invite your pants to come on down.” This is a very cheesy pickup line and will make any woman likely to chuckle you away.  It sounds very unthreatening, but she could come back and turn you down with ease. We are better than this men, don’t let her go so easy.
  4. “I was so enchanted by your beauty that I ran into that wall over there. So I am going to need your name and number for insurance purposes.” This is very cute, but it still leaves you open for her rejecting you by saying, “you should learn to drive better.” If you’re not prepared for the comeback you could risk looking like a fool, well more than you usually would.
  5. “If I received a nickel for every time I saw someone as beautiful as you, I'd have five cents.” This cheesy pickup line won’t melt any hearts, but does show your affection in a very adorable way. This might actually break the ice with a girl in high school. However, more mature women like to think of themselves worth more than just a nickel. Go with a million you can’t lose!
  6. “Do you have a Band-Aid? I just scraped my knee falling for you.” This one plays on the heart on many levels and only a cold woman would shrug you off. This is best be used in the supermarket or gym, but never at the club. This would get the college girl interested in you and maybe even, but you need to follow-up in a very sweet conversation.
  7. “Hey baby you're so fine you make me stutter, wha-wha-what's your name?” You are complimenting her, without making her feel like it was forced. You also asked something about her to get the follow-up conversation started.  A line that fits smoothly into a conversation is the key to a successful pickup. You will have to play this one up a bit to get the desired effect.  
  8. “Would you grab my arm so I can tell my friends I've been touched by an angel?” Never compare a woman to anything, but if the thought conjures up heavenly images then you can bend the rule. This one works at the gym, supermarket, or the club. It could be hard to find something to say after this so make sure you’re ready, because they like being called angels!
  9. “There must be something wrong with my eyes; I can't take them off you.”  This is almost the perfect cheesy pickup line, because it allows her to follow up with, “there is nothing wrong with your eyes.” Also you can tell her the reasons why your eyes couldn’t leave her, like her beauty. Use this line for the girl that you really like or if you can’t think of anything to say to break the ice.
  10. “If I followed you home, would you keep me?” This cheesy pickup line is the best, because it’s cute, short, and you can keep repeating it. You can use it anywhere and if she says no you can move on without a second thought. Don’t be married to one line and always try to change it up. Be sure to give her those puppy dog eyes, man do they love the puppy dog eyes.

Sometimes cheesy pickup lines are the only way to break the ice with a woman. If you feel tension between you and a girl, it might be because she is waiting for you to talk to her. A pickup line is a good way to show your interest in a light-hearted way. If you choose a bad line or mess up saying it, don’t try to recover with another line you will look desperate. Just say that she gets you tongue twisted and you can’t wait for more of the same feeling.
