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,

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."

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.

What is it about someone that captivates you instantly?

Could it be the twinkle in their eye as they talk about their passions? Or perhaps its their overwhelming sense of humor that draws in everyone in the room?

Whatever it might be, everyone has that one trait, that one quality, that can make them instantly interesting to someone listening nearby.

Turns out not all of us are interested in being benevolent Gods.

It's Reddit, so we're not exactly surprised, but we're suddenly glad divine cosmic powers don't work this way.

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Either way, it just doesn't seem that long ago and the nostalgia for the trappings of the 1990s is strong.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.
