The 8 Worst Pickup Lines Women Use on Men
We've all heard some pretty cringey pickup lines used by men trying to get a woman's attention. But have you ever thought about bad pickup lines used by women? Believe it or not, women are just as capable of whipping out a corny one-liner when trying to talk to a guy they're interested in.
As a veteran of the dating scene, I've heard some doozies from women over the years. From overly sexual come-ons to lame attempts at flattery, I've been on the receiving end of some pick up lines that made me want to turn and run the other way.
Here are 8 of the worst pickup lines women have used on me and other unlucky guys:
1. "Are you from Tennessee? Because you're the only ten I see!"
Try having a genuine, authentic conversation instead of relying on canned lines. Ask an interesting question or pay the guy a sincere compliment.
2. "Are you a parking ticket? Because you've got 'fine' written all over you."
Cheesy lines comparing us to inanimate objects don't work. We've heard them all a million times before. Know what does work? An authentic compliment about something unique you notice about us.
3. "Can I have directions?" "To where?" "Your heart."
Asking for directions you don't need is a played out pickup tactic. Try starting an actual conversation instead of a corny routine.
4. "Are you religious? Because you're the answer to my prayers."
This line tries to flatter us by insinuating we're perfect. But it comes across as artificial as most religion-related pickup lines. Tell us what you find attractive about us specifically if you want to win us over.
5. “What’s your sign?”
Asking our astrological sign seems like an easy conversation starter, but it’s an overused line that feels lazy. Dig a little deeper and ask about our interests, hobbies, or work.
6. “Do you have a sunburn, or are you always this hot?”
Sunburn pickup lines just make us cringe. Clever wordplay can be charming when delivered artfully, but cheesy puns like this usually backfire.
7. “I’m not drunk, I’m just intoxicated by you.”
Don’t try to excuse tipsy behavior by blaming it on us. Lame pickup lines + liquor breath = bad combination. If you want to approach a guy in a bar, do it with confidence and leave the corny lines behind.
8. “I lost my number, can I have yours?”
Asking for our number directly is better than this worn out missing number routine. Being straightforward shows confidence, while cheesy lines feel manipulative.
The takeaway? Corny pickup lines are often a turn-off, regardless of who uses them. If you want to get a guy's attention, start an authentic conversation or give a genuine compliment instead. Funny banter and expressing real interest work much better than canned lines.
So next time you’re out and spot a cute guy you want to talk to, take a risk and start a real dialogue. You might just make a meaningful connection.
