Top 10: Cheesiest Pick-up Lines


Even Chaminade men’s basketball player De’Andre Haskins can easily get the ladies with his cheesy pick-up lines.

“I don’t know if you know this, but you look a lot like my next girlfriend.”

What would your reaction be if a guy/girl said that to you? What could someone say if he/she told you that you looked like his/her next girlfriend/boyfriend?

People sometimes feel obligated to say lame jokes or pick-up line to grab a person’s attention just to talk to them. Pick-up lines have been some of the cheesiest, lamest and funniest ways that people have been using to meet people. It makes you wonder who comes up with these lines because they are just so ridiculous to hear.

The first pick-up line that someone ever said to me was, “Are you lost ma’am? Because heaven is a long way from here.” My initial reaction to the person was a hysterical burst of laughter. Then I thought about how many times that person used it on other people and then it came down to, “How I am going to let this person down easily.

So I decided to take it upon myself and put these pick-up lines to the test and go up to people and say some of the cheesiest lines I have heard and some that my friends have heard.

10) “You must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind all day.”

“I felt embarrassed that someone said that to me and thinking to myself, ‘Are you stupid?’ And I thought ‘Are you serious?’ I think guys using pick-up lines are a big turn-off, they are literally dumb for even trying,” said Letisha Vaba, 23, a junior at Chaminade.

9) “Did you fart? Because you just blew me away!”

I don’t know about you, but if I guy ever said this to me, I would be grossed out. Why would anyone ever think it is attractive to ask a stranger if she farted? I would make that person feel like an idiot for even asking me that question, let alone trying to hit on me by asking if I farted.

8) “Sit on my lap and we’ll talk about the first thing that pops up.”

Let’s be honest, jokes nowadays have taken a turn for more of the sexual approach. I would have to admit that I am a fan of sexual jokes so if someone were to say this line to me, I would laugh and play along. In my opinion, it is funny to have some sexual banter. It spices up more of a conversation and shows the person’s comfortability boundaries.

7) “Do you have a band-aid? I scraped my knee when I fell for you.”

“Well one of my friend’s jokingly said this to me and I thought they were seriously asking me for a band aid. But it was more funny because I was really going to give my friend a band-aid, ” said Jordan Ahakuelo, 20, a junior at Chaminade.

6) “Your name must be Campbell’s because you’re mmm mmm good!”

I don’t know who comes up with these lines. It is just pure entertainment to know that someone waited all night to muster the courage to say this horrible, yet cheesy line to someone. However, it does lack originality and the person would lose creative points.

5) “You’re like a dictionary…you add meaning to my life.”

I guess this would be flattering to hear that I can add meaning to a guy’s life, but I would not fall for this line at all. I will give the person a high-five for trying.

4) “I lost my number, can I have yours?” 

“My first reaction to this pick-up line was to laugh. I actually did give the guy my number but only because they laughed at themselves also and followed up with a really good conversation. Sometimes the cheesiest pick-up lines work out if they’re pulled off well,” said Brittany Talamantes, 22, a senior/exchange student at Chaminade University

3) “Do you work for UPS? Because I swear I saw you checking out my package.”

I have heard this line a few times, and I always bust out in laughter. It is just funny to hear, and it is also something I would play along with because of the sexual connotation behind it.

2) “You must work at KFC because those are great breasts and legs.”

I wouldn’t really know how I would feel if a guy said this to me. I would be flattered because he was checking me out, but the fact that a person even compared me to chicken is just wrong. What girl would want to be seen as a piece of meat? I know I wouldn’t.

1) “Are you from Tennessee? Because you’re the only ten I see.”

This line was for sure going to be in the Top ten because I don’t know how many times I have heard guys use this before. Whether they are jokingly saying this to someone or this is the go-to line to use to hit on someone, this has been used one to many times and should just retire.

Even though it takes much creativity for people to come up with these amazing lines, most of the time it will end with a good time or a bad experience.
