So you're a young, red-blooded heterosexual male on Wall Street who keeps striking out with the ladies. Pink dress shirts have failed to attract attention. That expensive, gold-plated iPad gets you nowhere.
You've been working too hard at this.
It turns out that many women like a guy who uses a tacky pick-up line. At least many British women do.
A "survey" done by UK online casino MrGreen.com claims that nearly 60 percent of women believe it takes a sense of humor and confidence for a guy to walk up to a woman and say, "Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?" I would add that it also takes about three or four beers. Four in ten women have dated a man who used a cheesy line, and one in ten ended up having a long-term relationship.
As for men, four in ten of those surveyed admit to using corny lines like, "Nice dress, it'd look good on my bedroom floor," to score a date. Really.
Finally, one in twenty women say they'd actually be MORE likely to go out with a man who goes for broke in an attempt to impress them. However, the women add that it helps if the man is rich and good-looking. There's a news flash for you.
According to the "research", here are the top 20 most commonly used cheesy pick up lines. Which is your most/least favorite? Tell me in the comments section below. In my opinion, #11 has the best chance of making me laugh, while #6 wouldn't work even if the guy was George Clooney. As if George Clooney needs a pick-up line.
