i was having dinner with one of my old friends from high school. we were talking about relationships and he was telling me how its hard for guys to approach girls and such. but i think if a guy has a clever line , which is cheesy, but when used in a right way, works. i was wondering what lines if any, works for you. or if you know of any?

they can always just say "I think i know you from somewhere", go through a list of places then realise, maybe you dont and then since you have already been talking, continue to talk!!!

but i think cheesy pick up lines like "stole the stars and put them in your eyes" etc etc are sooooooooooooooooo bad and would make you go "Ugh"

i think the most over used one I always heard was......did you hear about the polar bear....well he broke the ice didn't he ....... I've been in bars before and guys have started talking about kids tv shows from when they were growing up which used to get loads of people talking even if they were only trying to remember the theme tune....the most talked about was Fraggle Rock.....from a girls point of view to chat up my boyf' ...well i told him i thought he was sexy and that I wanted to buy him a drink....easy........

Gotta love the cheesy pick up lines! I've heard plenty of them, but I've never heard someone using them for real. Some of my favorite cheesy pick up lines are

1. "Guy: You must be tired. Girl: Why? Guy: Because you've been running through my mind the whole day"

2. "Guy checks the tag in the girl's shirt and says: 'Thought so. Says Made in Heaven.'"

3. "Guy: Did it hurt? Girl: Did what hurt? Guy: When you fell from heaven?"

Talk about VELVEETA. But I agree with the pretending to know you from somewhere thing. Easiest way, even though it's most probably obvious, but there's no harm done if the person turns you down.

I approached a guy in a hotel once, trying to chat him up. My angle was his tshirt, which said something about Colorado, and I went up, pretended I loved skiing, and confessed how much I'd love to go to Colorado, and asked him if he was from there. He said he wasn't, that he was from around "here" (New Orleans), and then I really tried to get the conversation going but he really wasn't cooperating. So I said goodbye and left. A few minutes later, he approached me and invited me to a party that night. Worked after all! I think basically if you just try to approach someone with a specific topic in your head (e.g. "Do I know you from somewhere?") and not give off these sleazy vibes, you should be fine.

Watching someone deliver a cheesy line is like witnessing a car accident - you cringe, your put your hands up to your face, you duck...

The best approach for me is almost always the most honest - no cheesy lines, just a "I saw you and wanted to talk to you." Mind, sometimes flattery gets you everywhere.

I don't remember the cheesiest line I've ever heard, but some guy in Paris came up and asked me if I wanted to go see a documentary about the woman who set the world record for being "gang banged". Needless to say...

I was at a dance club place in Barcelona and some guy asked me if I wanted to dance. I declined and then he proceeded to yell (becuase of the music) all about his "flat" that he had in town and how it was his "own flat, that's piso in Spanish" (even though I had told him I speak Spanish and he had told me he doesn't...) I think he mentioned it 3 or 4 times in 3 min.
so anyhow bragging about your place of residence doesn't send good vibes...

Ooooo I have some bad ones....

1. Is that a mirror in your pocket? Because I can see myself in your pants.

2. Do you have a map? Because Honey, I just keep gettin lost in your eyes.

3. You must be a light switch, because every time I see you, you turn me on.

4. Can I borrow a quarter? I want to call my mom and tell her I just met the girl of my dreams.

5. I'm new in town. Could you give me directions to your apartment?

6. If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together.

Thank you!!! I'll be here all week!

Cheers,
Katie ;)

i just heard a good one today. it wasnt really a line, but i was stopped by this gentleman. he was considering applying to my school and he wanted to ask me some social stuff about my college. anyway, as i gave him a brief scenario. he told me he had alot of korean friends, and how they were all into plastic surgery. if you dont know why? ask me. anyway, i havent had any work done myself, nor can i afford to, nor do i seek pain, but that is nor here nor there. anyway, to make a long story long. his compliment to me was ... "dont get any plastic surgery, you look beautiful just the way you look". it was sweet.... and um... weird. but it stuck with me the rest of the day. huh.
