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?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.


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.

Cheesy.

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.

Knowing how to comfort someone is a skill that not everybody has. In fact, some of us outright suck at it.

It doesn't make you a bad person - maybe you're awkward under pressure, or uncomfortable, or didn't have healthy models of empathy. Maybe you just panic and don't know what to do.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?
