Wikipedia defines a pick-up line as a conversation opener with the intent of engaging an unfamiliar person for humor, romance, or dating. Overt and sometimes humorous displays of romantic interest, pick-up lines advertise the wit of their speakers to their target listeners.
Sounds simple enough….so how come men aren’t better at it?
We asked some Arsenic Girls to tell us their most memorable lines:
THE WORST: “Is there a mirror in your pocket? Because I see myself in your pants”
THE BEST: I locked eyes with a guy at a party and at the end of the night, when we finally crossed paths he looked into my eyes and said you have very kind eyes. So cheesy, but I like cheesy romance so it got my attention 🙂
THE WORST:It doesn’t surprise me because I live in LA. A guy came up to me at a bar and started complimenting weird things on me like my nails not having acrylics or that my hair was real…odd stuff. Then he gave me his card and it turns out he was a porn star…I think he was trying to recruit/pick me up. so creepy!!!
THE WORST: When I was in college a guy stopped me and asked if ” I was hurt”…I answered “how did U know?”…just a few days before I was involved in a car accident. He then answered “well, when you fell down from heaven!”?! Like seriously how weak is that???
THE BEST: I’d like to buy you girls a round of drinks!! Bartender, get me four water.
THE WORST: Are you an actress? I was just wondering because I want to be able to tell if you are faking it later.
THE WORST: I had one incident with a bad pick up line. If this counts – A guy I had been out with a couple times one said, “Want to come in and sit on my face?” after a date one night. Sure, the scenario isn’t “bad” per say (lol) but it was a turn off cause he was not my boyfriend, just sounds like a desperate pig to me.
THE BEST: When a guy just tells you you’re beautiful & doesn’t expect anything in return. I was just in Paris & so many guys would stop & tell me that, and keep it moving. Whether I had interest or not it was flattering & romantic.
THE WORST: When a guy asks you if you have a boyfriend, & when you reply yes, they say “I don’t mind or can we be friends” – I’m pretty sure you’ll know if I’m interested in you. I’ll let you know.
THE BEST: Here’s the thing, I actually love those cheesy “did it hurt when you fell from heaven” type of lines, because they make me laugh so much, In my eyes, if you have enough guts to rattle of something that lame you have my attention.
THE WORST: I was wearing a “Keira” necklace and the guy came up to me and said, my name’s Keelan, we both have K’s, E’s and A’s in our name, its a sign we’re meant to be together…for me though it was a sign that I hadn’t drunk enough vodka that night to entertain his creative attempt”.

BEST & WORST: Guy say: excuse me but is that a keg in your pants? Girls: excuse me?!!! Guy: cause I sure would like to tap that ass!

THE WORST: I have this giant tattoo on my shoulder of the state of Alabama.. Men use it as a way to break the ice by coming up to me & guessing the state.. And they NEVER get it right! Lol! They’re like, “I have a bet with my friend here about what state is on your shoulder.. Is that New Mexico??” Which just makes them look uneducated because, NO, It’s Alabama!!!!! I’m a walking Geography lesson! Then, Of course when I tell them the state.. That opens a whole other door & They immediately go into.. “Oh, so are you from there?” Drives me nuts!

THE BEST: If I had a star for every time you brightened my day, I’d have a galaxy.
There must be something wrong with my eyes. I can’t seem to take them off of you.
THE WORST: If you were a transformer you’d be a HOTobot and your name would be optimusFINE.
THE BEST: A guy asked my friend about me and was completely sweet saying “not to bother you but I was very intrigued with your blonde friend is she seeing anyone?” Simple is always the best.
THE WORST: While sitting with a few girl friends at a bar a guy approached me and said “Are you going to that funeral?” I was confused and responded “what are you talking about? Are you drunk?” Without a thought he says “The one where MY BALLZ drop dead in your mouth” I grabbed my drink and poured it on his head and had security escort him out.
Because of bad pick up lines I got a ❤ with nope in the middle on my back right elbow so I can now just shove that in guys faces.
