Is It Hot In Here? Or Is It Just You?

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.

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.

  1. Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?
  2. Apart from being beautiful, what do you do for a living?
  3. Shall we talk or continue flirting from a distance?
  4. Nice dress, it'd look good on my bedroom floor
  5. I miss my teddy bear. Would you sleep with me?
  6. Do you have any Irish in you? (if no) Would you like some? (if yes) Want some more?
  7. Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?
  8. Do you believe in helping the homeless? If yes, take me home with you.
  9. If I told you that you had a nice body, would you hold it against me?
  10. Do you mind if I stare at you up close instead of from across the room?
  11. Hi, I just wanted to give you the satisfaction of turning me down; go ahead say no.
  12. I seem to have lost my number, can I have yours instead?
  13. Is it hot in here or is it just you?
  14. I have had a really bad day and it always makes me feel better to see a pretty girl smile. So, would you smile for me?
  15. There must be something wrong with my eyes, I can't take them off you.
  16. Hi. I suffer from amnesia. Do I come here often?
  17. Is your father a thief? Because someone stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes
  18. I'm a frog but if you kiss me I'll turn into a prince
  19. Is there a rainbow? Because you're the treasure I've been searching for
  20. I hope you know CPR, because you take my breath away
