    This pick-up line is so true!!.. With this one you don’t come off as a sleazy person. You seem genuine and really want to know the other person better.

    1. Bella Perennis

      Yeah I totally agree. I wouldn’t want to start talking to somebody who is using something sleazy, reciting something he’s learned at a pick-up artist show.

  2. Lauren Freeman

    I was not expecting that, but I can definitely see how it’s true! The cheesy and sleazy pickup lines sound funny in theory, but never seem entertaining when they are actually put to use. If someone is serious about “picking up” someone, using this one would definitely be the way to go!

    This makes complete sense. I’m not a pickup artist or strive to be but I am an avid people watcher, lover & psychoanalysis. By hobby of course, technically I do not know anything. I imagine though that eye contact, confidence or body language in a whole is more important than the words. The way you deliver the question or “pick up line” is probably the real secret. If you can master (or fake it until you make it) non verbal communication you could quite possibly rule the world. Mwaaaa!!! (evil laugh). ?

      Hahaha very true! As a ‘professional’ people-watcher myself I get you!

    This was funny to watch:) I would say that as a girl pick up lines can be a turn off and it comes off as a guy trying too hard. Flattering sure but when someone just says, Hi how are you? it’s like they are trying to know you as a person not just trying to pick you up because of how you look or the “vibe” you give.
