Bad pick-up lines are here to rescue you! Here are a few examples of lines that should never be used, unless you want to end up alone. Or at least with someone who has a great sense of humor.

1. Sorry, my friend back there is a little shy. He would like your number so that he knows where to contact me tomorrow.

Maybe if you’re charming enough.

2. Would you like a raisin? No? Well, here I am. What are your other two wishes?

At least it’s creative.

3. I forgot my phone number. Can I have yours?

You probably won’t get the number, but you will at least remember your own.

4. My love for you is like diarrhea: I can’t hold it in.

Eww, no. Just no.

5. You make me feel like I’ve had way too much coffee.

Does this person make your stomach hurt?

6. What’s a smart, attractive person like myself to do without your phone number?

Same as always: be single.

7. Are you religious? Because you are the answer to all my prayers!

Maybe don’t say this to someone who’s religious.

8. You are the hottest thing since sunburns!

Skin cancer isn’t cute.

9. You are the reason men invented pick-up lines.

Uhh, thanks?

10. What’s your sign? Oh, mine too! Looks like we’re meant to be together.

Maybe it’s a good conversation starter? Maybe? No?

11. You must be a fossil, because I would love to date you.

Fossils are pretty old…

12. You look tired, is it because you’ve been running through my mind all night?

Maybe don’t tell people they look tired. It’s not a compliment.

13. Can I break the ice with you? Or do you have to do it yourself?

How do you even answer this?

14. I must be in a museum, because you are a piece of art.

Kind of overused.

15. Is there a spark between us? Or am I just getting electrocuted from all the chemistry?


16. I lost my teddy bear, will you be my cuddle buddy tonight?

You have a teddy beat… at your age?

17. Can I borrow your phone? I need to call God and tell Him an angel is missing.

You have God… on speed dial?

18. Do you believe in love at first sight, or do I need to walk by again?

Probably best not to mention “love” on first encounter.

19. If you were a vegetable, you’d be a cutecumber.

For vegetarians and vegans, maybe?

20. Are you a magician, because whenever I look at you, everyone else disappears.

How do you even respond to this?

Extremely awful pick-up lines

These pick-up lines are so bad, they’re almost impressive. Like, how did someone even come up with these?

And more importantly, who would actually think these could work? Brace yourself for some serious cringe!

1. Is this a bus stop? ‘Cause I’m here to pick you up.

What a creep.

2. I thought angels had wings?

Doesn’t it hurt when you read this sentence?

3. Have you been arrested before? It must be illegal to be this hot.

A cop joke, nice.

4. Is your mother a chicken? Because you’re egg-cellent.

At least you’re going to make the person laugh.

5. You should be someone’s spouse. How about mine?

Maybe don’t ask a marriage preposition the first time?

6. If you were a president, you would be Babe-braham Lincoln.

Hardly anyone likes being referred to as a “babe” by a stranger.

Who swallows magnets?

8. I have a pen, and you have a phone number. Just imagine all the possibilities!

I don’t know, dude. I imagine you not getting that number.

9. Be different from the others and say yes.

Way to show off how many times you’ve been rejected.

10. Can you explain to me what an attractive, funny person like me does without your number?

Approaching people with bad pick-up lines, maybe?

11. Good thing I just bought life insurance. When I saw you my heart stopped.

Maybe it’s time for an appointment with your dentist.

14. Sorry, did you just talk to me? No? Would you like to?

Still no? What a shame.

15. If I followed you home, would you keep me?

Since my unprofessional assumption is that you’re neither a kitten nor a puppy, you’d just come off like a stalker. Don’t follow anyone home, please.

Maybe if you deliver it right.
