The Pick-Up Line: "Can I buy you a drink?"
The Bottom Line: All right, so it’s a fair attempt. He gets a B+ for effort, but an F for creativity. Still, he just offered you a free drink, so you might as well take it. Maybe he’s got a little more to offer in the way of personality, but it’s up to you to make a choice: stay and chat long enough to see if he’s worth the energy, or grab your glass and go.
Verdict: Keeper! He’s paying, so stick around for a little while ... or at least until after you’ve taken the first sip.
The Pick-Up Line: "Are you from Tennessee? Because you’re the only ten I see!"
"If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put U and I together."
"It’s a good thing I brought my gloves today; otherwise, you’d be too hot to handle."
The Bottom Line: Um ... NO. If he whips out one of these babies, run. Either he’s joking (in which case, not funny) or he’s being totally serious (in which case, nice try). Pick-up lines like these might be funny, but they certainly won’t make us swoon. Some of them are just laughable, so whatever the reason he has for spitting lines like these is just not good enough.
Verdict: Creeper. Yep, just run.
The Pick-Up Line: "Do you want to leave?"
The Bottom Line: Well, do you? You know what this means, girls, and in 10 minutes flat you'll be at his beer-laden frat house and headed straight for his bunk bed. If you're interested, go for it, but know that this guy probably isn't interested in getting to know you. All he wants to find out is how long it’ll take for him to get your bra off.
Verdict: Keeper ... but only ’til the sun comes up, and if you’re interested in that sort of thing, go for it. If you’re not okay with this sort of meaningless, random hook-up, don’t agree to go home with him in the first place. It’ll leave you disappointed and him less than, well, satisfied.
