Top Ten Pick-up Lines

“Is it hot in here or is it just you?” This is one of the oldest pick-up lines in the book. Brash but not so offensive that is will disgust anyone. If you don’t look ‘sleazy,’ these words just may help you get your foot in the door.   

“How does it feel to be the most beautiful woman/handsome man in this room?” Obviously, you would use either ‘beautiful woman’ or ‘handsome man,’ don’t use both! Starting out with a complement is always a good way to begin a conversation.

“If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put U and I together.” A little bit on the ‘Sesame Street’ side but still cute. You will probably get a chuckle from the prospective mate, so be ready with a follow-up that is also funny.

“Heaven must be missing an angel!” I think there is a song with these same words; get the DJ to play it and you may have a dance partner for the night.

“See my friend standing over there? He wants to know if you think I’m cute.” Be prepared for the answer, or lack thereof.  If the person agrees with your ‘friend,’ be sure to have a complement to give right back.

“Can you give me directions to your heart? I've seemed to have lost myself in your eyes.” Ah, mushy but yet kind of cute. Be sure to look at the person’s eyes (and know what color they are in case you are quizzed) before you deliver the line.   

“If you were a tear in my eye, I wouldn't cry for fear of losing you.” I don’t know about this one, it sounds a bit creepy to me. I would hold off on saying this until after the person has warmed-up to you!

“Would you touch me so I can tell my friends that an angel has touched me?” Make sure you stretch out your hand so the person knows you are not making any obscene suggestions. I guess the word ‘angel’ makes it more acceptable. 

“The only thing your eyes haven't told me is your name.” Have a list ready in your mind of what the person’s eyes have ‘told’ you. Try and get creative and inject as many genuine complements as you can. 

“If you were a burger at McDonald's, you'd be called McGorgeous!” Ha! I would laugh so hard if someone ‘fed’ me this line! But, it is original and corny enough to fall into the cute side! If you get a good response, maybe you can make a date to meet at the local McDonald’s for a quick bite (don’t think cheep, think recession).

Top Ten Break-up Lines

“It’s not you, it’s me.” I know, I know, no one likes to hear this one, but it’s the line used by millions. Don’t be afraid to use it if that is the truth. Take full responsibility and let your partner know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with them. 

“I want to start dating other people.”  Ouch! This stings, but if that’s how you feel, you need to be honest with your partner. If you do not want to be monogamous right now because you are too young, not ready for a commitment, or for whatever reason, get it out in the open.

“I’m not ready for a serious relationship; I just want to have fun.” Remember the song “Girls just wanna have fun” (or boys), if that’s you then this is your line. You could tell your partner that you thought you were ready for a relationship, but you’re not. 

“Let’s take a break. I need some time to think about where I am in life and the direction I want to take it.”  This line is not as harsh as “I want to start dating other people,” so the person may not feel as bad. Beware, however, this line leaves a little glimmer of hope that after you ‘think’ about where you are in life, you may want to get back together. If that’s the case, then great, but if not, level with your mate.

“I don’t love you anymore.”  The late soul singer, Teddy Pendergrass sang a song called “I don’t love you anymore (no, no, no, not like before).” Maybe if you play the song a few times, your significant other will have a clue before you ‘drop the bomb.’ (There is also a song that says “You dropped a bomb on me, baby…” But I guess that’s for another time.)

“I love you, but I’m not in love with you.”  Ooh, what does that mean? Does it mean you want to stay friends with you soon to be ex? If not, stay clear of this line.

“There is someone else.”  If you’re going to use this line, you’d better be prepared to have something thrown at you. People don’t like the feeling of knowing the person they love is in love with someone else. However, if this is the case and you want to be totally honest then say it, but be gentle.

“My career means so much to me and at this point in my life I don’t have the time to put into this relationship.”  Can you say ‘workaholic?’ Are you married to your career, if so, tell your mistress, I mean your partner.

“I think we would be better off as just friends.” Sometimes nothing could be truer. Perhaps at one time you and your mate were great friends and you thought that would translate into a great relationship. If it hasn’t, try to salvage the friendship.   

“It’s not working-out.” If you use this line, be sure to be specific and tell the person everything that you perceive to be wrong in the relationship. Don’t hold back, and if the person says “I can change,” have a response ready.

“You’re too good for me, you deserve someone better.”  If your partner is angry enough, chances are they will agree with you and say “You know what? I AM too good for you!”
