If there’s one thing I despise, it’s pick up lines. Some girls find them flattering and silly. I don’t. Never have, never will. I think pick up lines are cheesy and pathetic.

Further encouraging guys to slab on the sugar, Vanity Fair asked them to pick a bad pick up line from a list- a line they’ve used and that they think has been effective in helping them pick up women. Here’s what they said:

“Do you have a map? I just got lost in your eyes?” was deemed most effective by 31 percent of respondents.

“I seem to have lost my phone number. Could I borrow yours?” – 19 percent

“Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?” - 17 percent

“You Must Be Jamaican, Because Jamaican Me Crazy.” – 8 percent

“Don’t know” – 25 percent (Good boys! Let’s keep it that way! Don’t use pick up lines. Ever.)

I can usually tell when a guy has a good strong mom because he’s generally a good guy who treats a woman well. Guys with a momma who wasn’t a strong influence tend to be chauvinistic jerk faces. Another interesting question the guys were asked by Vanity Fair is how much control mother’s have in molding their son into the perfect man and not surprisingly, most guys agreed that momma has a lot of influence:

  • Full control, 9 percent
  • A lot of control, 69 percent
  • Very little control, 14 percent
  • No control at all, 4 percent

Going back to the pick up lines, here are a few more (not on the Vanity Fair list) that I think are just awful:

“Do you drive a Prius? Because up until now we’ve been pre-us.”

“Our long term relationship starts (looks at watch)…now.”

“You must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind.”

And I think this is my least favorite because it’s so arrogant sounding:

“Hey girl, guess what? It’s your lucky day. Out of all the girls here, I picked you to talk to.”

What’s the worst pick up line you’ve ever heard? Has someone ever used a pick up line on you and it worked?
