Pickup lines: sometimes they work because of how truly lame they are. Others, however, are sheer perfection. But we have to credit creativity either way,

IO_Exception_e asked girls of Reddit: What's your worst pickup lines?

10. A mood.

"Please f*ck me, I'm lonely and desperate."

9. Is it really that easy?

A girl approached me one time and just said "Hey I like your hat!"

I wasn't wearing a hat, but I instinctively reached for my head like wtf am I wearing a hat?

She called me a dumbass and I took her home later that night then we dated for almost a year.

8. This sticks with you.

"You must be a box of BD pen needles, because you are ULTRA fine!"

Yes, I work in pharmacy. Yes, I have said this to my husband. He rolls his eyes at me pretty hard.

This could also work for a type one diabetic talking with another type one diabetic.

7. Jeez.

My gag reflex is as absent as my father figure.

And

Let's go to my place and play Barbie. You be Ken, and I'll be the box you come in.

(I'm a dude, sorry)

We can't have sex anymore I'll be laughing too much.

6. Winner.

Licks finger and run it down the middle of the persons face from forehead to chin "Is this seat taken?"

It's so incredibly awful it's hilarious but for real don't lick your finger and touch someone because that's much more disgusting than the accompanying line.

My niece complained to my step-sister when she was being told to change her inappropriate clothes "That's no fair! You let Greg (her brother) go around with a hat that says 'Free Mustache Rides'!"

My Step sister was not too with-it: "what's wrong with that?"

Niece: "Think about it, mom? How do you sit for a mustache ride?"

5. *Gasp*

"Can you hold something for me" I say sure, what? "My hand."

tooeedgyhelp

I tried something similar once. I asked a girl if she would hold something while I went out for a walk. She said what? So, I held out my hand.

It worked, but not long term.

4. What's the wager?

"I bet your balls are as cute as mine."

my_future_wife

I was gonna say I'd go out with anyone after any of these previous pickup lines... and then I read this one.

3. Savage.

I was a cocktail waitress, and as I was leaning over a gentleman to put the drinks on the table, he said "Ooooh girl, you smell nice! What is it you're wearing?!?"

"Soap! You should try it, sometime!"

The rest of his friends at the table tipped me quite well.

2. Another winner.

Is your name Little Caesar's? Because you're hot and I'm ready.

1. Man hands?

My favorite one lately is "Hey there. You've got great hands. They look like they'd open jars really well.

nessabessa34

This would work on me. I am very proud of my jar opening abilities. I'd be all, 'yeah baby, you got any jars at your place you need me to open?'

SoySauceSyringe

Damn, I'm a very small woman who often needs help opening jars and reaching things on medium to tall shelves.

This is dirty talk that would absolutely work on me.

The world has changed significantly in the last twenty years. Back in the day, you could just step out of the house and be gone all day and no one could contact you unless they were back home or used a payphone.

Nowadays, people expect us to be connected all the time, which is super frustrating in its own way. But it's hard to imagine the world as it was before, right? And it's pretty wild that we just accepted it for so long, that is until technology advanced enough!

Society has changed... for better or worse. People shared their observations after Redditor Silkhide asked the online community,

"What was the most f**ked up thing that was generally accepted twenty years ago?"

Is it ever okay to keep a secret from your parents?

It's been said that what people don't know won't hurt them, and that can certainly depend on the circumstances. But some secrets aren't all sad, dark, and depressing. Some are quite wholesome, believe it or not!

And sometimes your parent might be in on the secret. That's right. One parent.

People were keen to share their experiences after Redditor TheCripdalorian asked the online community,

"What’s one secret you and a parent have kept from the other parental figure?"

Conversation can be one life's scariest actions. Whoever said it was an art form was 100% correct.

Words are beautiful and language is the bedrock of our lives but boy of boy can it create some problems.

One wrong word, or false noun and it can send a conversation reeling.

Having hard chats throughout life though are just part of the deal of living.

It can be especially difficult in relationships with opposite sex. Women are better at communication, that's just fact.

Men have a more arduous time broaching touchy subjects. Some touchier than others.

Case in point...

Redditor aeronacht wanted all of the gents out there to fess about the times they have to make, what could be uncomfortable, chit chat with the ladies, they asked:

"Men of Reddit, what’s the most difficult thing to explain to women?"

Whether it's a fad product from Instagram or something for that hobby you just know you'll start doing one day, it's easy to buy things that seem useful and then just never use them.
