Ladies, what is the absolute worst "pick-up line" a guy has tried to use on you?

Asked by JackAdams (6497points) August 22nd, 2008

I’m asking, so i will learn what NOT to use.

One that I overheard was, “Hi! I’m Matt. Remember my name, because you’ll be screaming it, later on.”

I realize that I am not a lady.

However, the worst pick-up line a guy has ever used on me is “Do you work for FedEx? Because I swear you were just checking out my package.”

If you want my best advice, don’t use pickup lines. They have a success rate of somewhere between none and zero. Get to know the girls. Introduce yourself politely…offer to buy her a drink. Ask her about herself. Don’t get cutesy.

I don’t use “pick-up lines” myself; I use “conversation starters,” and they are good for just breaking the ice and getting an exchange of opinions going.

One I used was when I got in a long line behind a young woman, and I said, “I just did you a favor.”

When she asked what that was, I said, “You are no longer at the END of this line.”

She laughed, and we started talking, then had lunch together.

After that, her husband showed up to take her home.

Wanna sc__w? If you can call that a pick-up line. It did not work in any case.

It’s this:
“Ladies,...... (you fill in the rest).”

I actually had a female radio dj hit on me once by saying “Nice package!”. Yeah….make me uncomfortable and then wonder why I excuse myself and walk away.

@lefteh, i would honestly never ever buy a girl a drink upon meeting for the first time. or ever as a matter of fact. it kinda gives off that “too much of a nice guy” persona and makes you seem like you’re forcing yourself to be nice for the sake of being accepted.

Unless you truly feel like getting her a drink, then go for it! :D

I have never used a “pick up line.” there is no such thing. if it ever did then every guy would be using it.. sadly.

the only “pickup line” i’ve ever used was “Hey, I’m ______, how ya doin?” and it tends to work fine for me. it got me a girls number in 5 minutes at the mall.

The worst line ever used on me was by an inmate. “Hey, you wanna get together after I get out? I’m only in on traffic charges.”

JackAdams's avatar

I’m curious as to how/why you were “in proximity” with an inmate, to hear that line.

Were you visiting someone else? Were you a prison employee?

Redneck pick up line: “Git in the truck, bitch!”

JackAdams's avatar

I believe “bitch” is capitalized.

Rednecks DO have manners, ya’ll know…

A Southern woman on a train, asked a female Yankee passenger, “Where ya’ll from?”

The Yankee lady replied, “Where I come from, we do NOT end our interrogatories with prepositions!”

The Southern Belle responded with, “Oh! You are so right! Please let me try that again: Where ya’ll from, Bitch?”

Can I f*ck you?!

….To which my response was…
“I don’t know….can you?”

I used THIS line successfully, in Texas, many years ago:

“I’m so depressed lately, because my wife recently divorced me. She found out that I was faking my erections.”

I just decided last weekend (don’t ask what brought this on), that the worst, worst, worst thing a guy could ever say to me upon first meeting is…(drum roll please)


If at any point you meet a woman, and you have to try to entice her to do something (talk to you, kiss you, accept your offer of a drink, let you come inside, or have sex with you), then either you’re trying too hard or she’s not interested. If she’s interested and ready for whatever you’re offering up, you won’t need to entice her. So gentlemen, f someone turns you down and you feel the urge to drop a “c’mon”, just walk away. It’s unattractive and a major turn-off.

Emilyy's avatar

*point of clarification—“let you come inside” was supposed to refer to entering one’s place of residence after a night out. I just realized that could have sounded a little crass.

“so, what do you want for breakfast in the morning?” was the worst pick-up line I ever suffered. I mean, except for the inevitable “if I said you had a nice body, would you hold it against me?” Every girl has heard THAT one, haven’t they??
