Yes or No? Chat-up Lines.

Heya everyone!! I'm a newbie, so be gentle with me!

 

Doing a bit of research here:

I was wondering, after a long debate with mates, whether chat-up lines work?

Some guys say that they're outdated and cheesy and others say that particular lines ALWAYS work and are great to 'break the ice' with. I've always been spontaneous - but so far, it hasn't lead to anything... What do you guys think?

 

Cheers!

hi maxpower,

 

to be honest, i dont like chat up lines. i think it is cheesy and pretty pathetic. i expect a guy to be himself and just come over and introduce himself. i feel this shows that he wants to genuinely get to know me and i get more interested that way.

 

i am not speaking for everyone but this is my personal opinion but i tend to brush off guys who use chat up lines.

Hi MaxPower and welcome to eNotAlone,

 

I am male but I will throw in my opinion in hope it will help!

 

I have never used a pick-up line myself, or have I ever felt the need to. Usually just introducing myself or making light of a dull moment is usually enough to break the ice and get a conversation started. I find that most women find pick-up lines sleazy, unless they are the type to like ego boosted kind of guys.

 

Also click here to see my recent thread about what people's favorite pick up lines were.

A line to break the ice is a crutch, to be used when you cannot properly walk into a conversation. If you know how to do it right, don't use the crutch.

 

More importantly, a few words in such a line is the smallest portion of what you are doing. Before the words come out of your mouth, you should have been having a conversation with her, without using words. Body language is the language of love. Pay attention to it.

My SO got me with a chat up line! Usually I wouldn't be impressed, but he got me!

 

What was it...

 

I've lost my telephone number, can I have yours?

 

Oh my god... I have heard that so many times... you know it is kinda funny actually that such an old pick up line can still work LoL ;-)

Cool. Thanks for your opinions guys! Yeah, I personally would hate the thought of someone coming up to me with a one-liner. There are some pretty awful ones out there!! Earlier in the thread - there's mention of a pick-up routine? What's that?
