Do pick up lines actually work on people? I never heard one that did not make me roll my eyes. To be honest, the whole idea of using an overly exhausted statement to initiate romantic engagement with someone does not make sense at all. How can everyone be expected to be charmed by the same boring, unimaginative and cringe inducing line?

To make you understand what some pick up lines can really do to people, picture this: its a rough wall and you accidently scratch it using your nails. The sound of it. Another picture: there is an empty aluminum vessel and you hear someone stirring a steel spatula in it. That feeling of your soul leaving your body in disgust because it can’t go through what you are watching or listening? That’s the feeling some pick up lines can give you. So why are we still made to go through the ordeal?

Here are 20 worst pick up lines that must get banned from the internet, like right now:

Did it hurt, when you fell from heaven?

Sorry Sir, I refuse to consider you have any intellect. 

I’m a thief, and I am about to steal your heart.

Um, back up please. 

I think i have seen you before. 

Sure, that is so convenient. You think I will talk to you because you saw me somewhere? 

Are you a model? Coz you look so beautiful. 

Thanks but do I really have to be model to look beautiful ?

Your pictures are such an understatement. 

Nobody gets to disrespect my photo editing skills, nobody.

I don’t like you and your weak puns.

You have any idea how the solar system works? Are you that naïve ? 

My parents told me to follow my dreams, can I follow you home? 

Never, I repeat never sound so threatening. 

I didn’t believe in god until I saw you. 

As a goddess, I forbid you speak anymore.

That is the most ridiculous and the most overused marriage proposal ever. 

I thought happiness started with H but mine starts with U. 

Pick up a dictionary Mister!

If being in love is illegal, would you be my partner in crime? 

I would like to abide by the law and never come close to you. 

Your middle name must be Gillette. Because you’re the best a man can get!

Seriously? Gillette? That is all you could compare me with?

I seem to have lost my phone number. Can I have yours?

At this point, I wish I forgot my number. 

Are you Siri? Because you autocomplete me!

Sorry for your sad life. I wonder how Siri deals with you. 

If you were a burger at McDonald’s, you’d be the McGorgeous.

It sounds like you are trying too hard.
