Pick-up Lines

I'm in a silly mood tonight.....and was thinking about some of the more memorable pick-up lines I've heard.

This one actually happened at the Renaissance Faire (I was wearing flowers in my hair):

Ren Faire Guy: "YOU'RE BLOSSOMING!!!" (exclaimed with the full-on British accent)
Me: *shrugs* "Yeah..."
Ren Faire Guy: "Have you been pollinated?"

I got a serious case of the giggles from that one, and thankfully my friends were there to escort me away so I didn't have to think of how I was going to respond @_@.


Anyone else have a pick-up line or story? Bonus points for costume/cosplay related ones ^_-.

I work at gamestop, so I get a couple.

1) At work we have to ask if people want to pre-order any games coming out. It's pretty important. So I asked this particular customer, and he responded with, "Can I pre-order you?"

2) Since the store I was working at is located next to a high school we get a lot of teens coming in to hang out and look at games, play on the display systems once the school lets out for the day. This group of boys came in, and then one of them comes over and says, "My friend was wondering if he could get your gamertag?" He didn't even come over himself! It was kind of cute, so I said I was flattered, but no.

AHAHAHA wow. I have no idea how I'd react to that. I work at GameStop, too. Hahaha. No one's tried to outright pick up line style try to hit on me there off the top of my head, but instead I get obvious flirting and guys trying to impress me.

...Though one guy did ask me to marry him when I said I played this one game. And I just laughed it off and said my boyfriend wouldn't like that. Oh man.

Oh, I used to get hit on all the time when I worked at Electronics Boutique! (way back when they weren't all GameStops), but I don't really remember any "lines", just a lot of awkwardness.

I did an event once, though, where I played "Agent Hot Pants", which basically means I dressed skimpy and sat in a bar waiting for these college students who were taking part in the event to locate me so that I could give them a clue. Like a scavenger hunt. But before I would give them the clue they had to use their best pick-up line on me. Then I would kind of grade them on the line. I got a lot of stupid ones like "how much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice!" and things like that...but the groups I gave the highest grades to were the one that sent the hot girl to hit on me (they were thinking outside the box, since obviously all the other groups sent one of the guys) and the group that did the pick-up from "Top Gun" on me! Yes, they sang "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" to me. They got the highest marks of the night! (and the best clue, because that's how it worked.)

As a side note, getting paid to sit in a bar for an hour and drink amaretto sours while people hit on you is awesome.

Some of those are hilarious XD

In fact, pickup lines never seem to be for anything except humor --- as if anyone would positively reply to one!

Once a guy on the street hollered "Hey, Red, can I make you blue?"

I'm a redhead. As for the rest, your guess is as good as mine.

Maybe he's into Erotic-Asphyxiation ?

Awww...those are pretty cute ^_^.


@Arlette: That sounds like an amazing gig!

Here's one that my brother read about in a magazine....(thankfully I was able to talk him out of trying it on some poor girl):

Guy walks-up to a girl in a bar and bets her that she can't balance a beer on her thumbs. Presumably, she accepts the challenge and places her thumbs on the bar so that the guy can place the bottle/mug on top of them. Once the beer is in place the guy says: "Cool! I didn't think you could do it." Then turns to walk away. The girl, realizing that she can't move her hands, will call the guy back. He'll rescue her from the predicament, they'll have a good laugh, and conversation ensues.

....although in real life I think that the guy would come across as a jerk @_@.

I had to ask the guy to repeat himself, but I said no, then launched into other great titles he could reserve. Stuff like that always makes me wonder what's going through their heads and if they think they're being witty.

Best pick-up line: 'How much do you weigh?'

Get it? "Pick up" line? Get it?

....it's been a long day.

Not pick up lines persay;

As Motoko I've had a college age guy ask me to take pictures with him on his cellphone apparently his intention was to tell his buddies I was his Girlfriend or somesuch bussnazz and another fellow shout out "Look at those big bouncing titties!" which I suppose can be considered a pick up line if you want to.

Guy's don't really SAY things to me, they just hug me when I am in cosplay as an excuse to touch me because apparently cosplay=free bodily contact.
