Here are some worst pick up lines used by men.
‘We’re not sure where lousy pickup lines started, but somehow they’ve become almost an art form. (At least the bad ones.) How do you craft something full of puns and nonspecific compliments that’s cheesy enough that the other person might assume there’s some depth underneath your one-liner? We’re not sure, but people manage to do it. What we want to know is: Have any of these ever worked?
Anyway, we hope these pickup lines will give you a laugh. Just promise never to (seriously) use them.
These pickup lines are so bad; they’re almost good
For as long as there have been single people looking for a relationship (or at least a date for Saturday night), there have been cheesy pickup lines. Our Neanderthal ancestors used them — you can be sure some Caveman tried a range like, “Can I hiber-mate with you through the Ice Age?”—and we continue to use them today, even though apps like Tinder and Bumble have replaced face-to-face first encounters for many singles.
Why pick up lines survived?
So why have pickup lines survived, even though they make us cringe? Well, probably because they make us cringe. Introducing yourself to someone new is always scary—the possibility of rejection is part of the deal—but if you use a pickup line that’s just cheesy or silly enough, you might make them laugh, and that’s at least a step in the right direction.
Pickup lines are rarely a good idea, even if you have a good range. At best, they’re an icebreaker if the person you’re delivering them to has a sense of humour. But then some pickup lines are so ill-advised, it takes you from “unnoticed” to “Not a chance in hell”.
