In the history of mankind, guys have found a way to used some of the worst pick-up lines they can think of. From certain phrases like, “Are you from heaven? Because you look like an angel,” to the downright embarrassing, like, “if you were a booger, I’d pick you first,” knowing when (and how) to use pick-up lines is critical in dating.

As we all well know, girls like a man who can make them laugh, so, when it comes to using a pick-up line, you want to have the right balance of funny and flattering, while also leading to conversation. It truly is an art form that some guys just don’t have.

Still, as bad as you might think you might be at talking to girls, there always seems to be someone worse than you, using some of the worst pick-up lines, yet, somehow, actually making them work. For those people — who know what to say and when to say it — these are for you; because we checked Reddit to see which awful pick-up lines led to dating success.

  • Mine was asking a girl who had a piercing in her tongue how it was to kiss a girl with a piercing like that. She said it was normal. I asked “can I try it?” It was normal.


  • Her: I love your beard. I wish I could grow a beard like that. Me: I know of a way we can share for a while.


  • “Hey, do you want to come back to my house and see my stamp collection”. Apparently she did.


  • 3am, dressed as a spartan for rugby social, half naked, absolutely freezing. ‘Are you not cold?’ Then out of nowhere ‘PENGUINS HUDDLE TOGETHER FOR WARMTH’. Took her back, watched a documentary on penguins.


  • I was the victim of one when I was about 19. Sitting in this bar, girl comes over. She is gorgeous but neither of us seem to have the courage to speak up. After a moment she goes: I just farted – want to go outside for some fresh air? We dated for 7 months after that.


  • 10 years ago, I had just watched the Senfeld episode where George goes against all his instincts. I was inspired. Went up to a very cute girl and said “Hey, I’m Dwy, I’m 70 pounds overweight, I live with my parents, I don’t own a cell phone and I’m unemployed. How are you?” Worked.


  • Told a girl with a lazy eye that she was as beautiful as a Picasso painting. She just smiled and asked if i wanted to follow her home.


  • Her: What’s your name? Me: Hugh G. Rection. I know now that any girl who will sleep with you after a line like that is one that you should not stick your dick in.


  • ”Hey, on a scale of 1 to 10 you’re a 9… cause I’m the 1 you need.” A guy once said that to me and I have to admit.. it worked.


  • If I flipped a coin, what would be my chances of getting head?


  • Last time I was in SF, got off a plane, went to hotel bar, sat next to a lady at said bar, said ‘we should fuck.’ Fucked. The vibes were aligned, so I took a risk. Only time I’ve ever tried it, and leaving that method with a 100% success rate.

Now, we’re not saying you should go out and use these pick-up lines — after all, they are pretty bold and, in some cases, just stupid. But, hey, if you know how to deliver them with the right tone and confidence, they could end up working as well for you as they did for these people.
