Do Pick Up Lines Work? (Part 1 of 2)
According to a study done at the University of Chicago study, there is no such thing as a pick-up line that really works. Apparently, "Hi" is the best opening line there is, followed by a question such as "How do you like the band?" or "So, what brings you here?"
Apparently all those classic pick-up lines don't seem to work quite as well as a simple greeting, a question that engages him or her in conversation followed by an introduction.
If this doesn't work, studies have shown that a hello and introduction just as you are leaving the event where you have spotted the object of desire really works. Try something like "Hi, my name is Rodney, and I just wanted to introduce myself to you." Hand the person your phone number and leave with a promising smile on your face. Even if the person doesn't call you, this creates an invitation for you to talk to her the next time you see her...
For your amusement, I have compiled a list of the corniest and the lamest pick-up lines that have been used so far in human history. In some cases, I have also suggested an appropriate response.
