Do Tell: What Was the Worst Pickup Line You Ever Got?

Our friends at Em & Lo have listed the 10 rules of the pickup, some for men ("Never look someone in the boobs while talking"), but some which are addressed equally to women ("Do not wordlessly dry-hump a stranger from behind on the dance floor"). Damn! There goes my main move.

When I was an undergrad, I was assigned Venus in Furs for a literature and psychoanalysis class and was reading it intently at a cafe. Now, the book is an erotic tale about a man obsessed with a dominatrix, and the cover had an arresting image of a woman in a red fur coat. A guy kept walking back and forth past my table, and finally, when I looked up, he gave me a creepy look and said, "That is my favorite book. May I sit down?"

Needless to say, the answer was no, but that probably wasn't even the worst pickup line I ever got — just the one I can remember. What was the worst pickup line you ever got? What was your reaction?

I have had quite a few but the only one that comes to mind right now that was probably not meant the way it sounded (i hope) was when i was at a strip club (i know i know, it was just supposed to be a funny night though.) and a guy said to me "you should be up there you look way better than her. i'd pay to see you up there" things like that. and then bought me 5 drinks. at once. which I left on the table and walked away:P weird.

I've had three really strange circumstances. First one: I was sitting a bar on a small wall waiting for my friends and ride (I was kinda asking for it, I know) when this guy walks over to me and says, "It looks like you're waiting for me." My response, "No, not really, but I guess you'll do for now." None the less, I left and he looked heart broken. Second: I was at a bar (noticing a trend) waiting for my friends when this super drunk Native American individual came over and started hitting on me because my necklace happened to be genuine turquoise I got from my grandmother. It lead to a really redundant conversation about his tribe and whatnot. Third: I was at a bar (duh) for my birthday, and the live band (like always) made an off the wall lewd comment (they claimed I liked anal (ew)) and one of the patrons came up to me and said, "If you really do like anal, I will marry you right now." I didn't even have a comment. I just walked away. None the less, I don't go to bars anymore.

While walking to the football game across campus, in a group of tailgating men one kept yelling out at me asking if I rock climbed. I kept walking and pretended not to hear it was so silly and he called me out on it! Asked why I was ignoring him and kept asking if i was into rock climbing. WTF doesn't even make sense and no I don't rock climb. Nothing about me that day suggested I did either.

No creative pick-up lines on my end, but someone once asked me to describe my nipples at a bar. "Big? Small? Pointy?"

It was a great line that was used on my best friend. We were in my car and these guys pulled up next to us and said to her, "So, are the rumors true - what they say about you -- that you have great legs?"And she said, "um... yeah!"They said, "Then why don't you come over here and spread that rumor?!"Sooo bad, but so good.

"Have we met before?" This would lead to many questions where he "tries" to figure out where we had crossed paths. I think it's a ploy to get a conversation started. Usually, to thwart that tactic, I would say truthfully, "No, I think you have me mixed-up with someone else." I would say it with a smile. :)

I've never actually gotten a pick-up line. Mostly whenever guys have "hit on" me, so to speak, all they've done is stare at me creepily. Reading your experiences, ladies, makes me realize that maybe I've been lucky haha.

My friend once got: "You hurt my eyes!"... English wasn't his first language. We know what he meant, but it sounded hilarious.

I had a guy come up to me and state that he was taking me home with him that night. Um - hell no - I have no clue who the hell you are. I told him to "f" off and yet he insisted on staring the whole night trying to make eye contact so he could mouth the words all over again. I hate cocky SOBs.
