Women like intelligent men, but maybe some things aren’t as clever as they were in your head. We had a mixer with some hot college coeds and asked them what the worst pickup lines they’ve ever heard were. They responded with five cringe-worthy turns of phrase that left their skin crawling and a dude’s face hurting.
1) Nice [insert body part here]
Odds are that she knows already, dude. They make these things called mirrors and we’re pretty sure she owns one or two. We asked our ladies what bugged them the most about this particular pickup line and they all basically said the same thing. One lady, Kathy, summed it up best: ″It sounds like he’s looking at a nice car or a bike or something. He’s probably really self absorbed.″
2) With a top like that, I know you want me looking
Okay, sit down. We are going to explain a thing to you if you used this. She isn’t dressing up for you. ″Why do dudes think that? I don’t even know them!″ Sarah asked us and we really couldn’t tell her. Some girls dress up because they know other girls are going to be dressing up and they don’t want to stand out. Others just feel more confident when it’s all on show. Bottom line is girls dress up cause they like to look sexy as much as we like looking at them being sexy. We, for one, are not going to argue with it and just enjoy the view. So don’t jack it up for the rest of us by being a creeper.
3) So how many drinks till you [sexual comment]?
″Why don’t you just go downtown if he wants a sex transaction? Gross.″ Tiffany completed the statement with a wrinkle of her nose. Some chicks are out there to get wild for the night, sure. It’s true that you’re not going to know unless you ask or she says something. However, opening up with that line is going to get you bathed in a martini.
4) I’m God’s gift to women
They’ve heard this one before and nothing is so soul crushing as hearing a girl says ″Oh, I hope he kept the receipt″. Women like it when they are dating high caliber men, don’t’ get us wrong. The trick is that they don’t want to date an asshole. Coming off like you think you’re doing a woman a favor by allowing her to talk to you is not going to get you anywhere.
5) Buying a Drink then Forcing Conversation
Hands down this one sends the ladies running for another bar. It’s a common thing, they’ll be at the bar and then someone will send them a drink over. They accept the drink because it’s a free drink and then a dude comes up to them. He starts off by saying ″hi″ but then the conversation quickly turns strange. If she says ″thank you for the drink, but I’m going to go find my friends″ she is not saying that you’re a horrible person and she wants to shoot you. She’s just not into you dude. Back off.
