Here’s a compilation of the best pickup lines that are so bad, they’re good.
Confession: I love pickup lines. They’re awful, yet not. The fact that a guy is willing to completely humiliate himself in front of you and your friends is pretty charming… well, unless he tries one of those trashy lines where your pants never seem to be on.
The only problem with pickup lines is their delivery. A guy could come up to you with one of the best pickup lines known to mankind, but if it’s not delivered with the finesse of Will Smith circa Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, womp womp. There’ll be no way for either of you to escape the awkwardness. Like, ever.
That’s why he has to amp up the cheese factor. The best pickup lines are meant to be bad, since it’s their cheesiness that eases the tension – even if he doesn’t end up with your digits, his adorable attempt will make for a great story. Plus, who knows? His pickup attempt could work.
I know, I know: This isn’t a rom-com. But you have to admit that some of the best pickup lines could maybe kinda sorta work on you, right? It’s okay – it’ll be our little secret.
