Still, some attempts miss the mark so beautifully that they deserve to be forever preserved in a flirting failure museum. So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What is the worst pick up line you’ve ever heard?' people were brave enough to share.
One time I was in a bar with my (admittedly stunning) friend and some guy was like 'hey can I buy you a drink? Must be hard being out with a friend that's so much better looking than you.' Obviously didnt work, told him to go f*ck himself. - amelia_greggs
Buddy of mine, in a bar in Ft Collins Colo back in 1990, saw some chick at the bar and was entranced by her. He was also very, very, intoximacated. Asked me for a pick up line, I said you were on your own.
Long story short, he approached her, panicked, asked her if she had ever been to Guatamala. 'Nope' was her answer. 'Neither have I, wanna f**k?' Still married to this day. - valis6886
I was 15 at the mall (1990s) with a few friends and wearing shirt with flowers on it. Some guy walked up and asked, 'how many seeds did it take to germinate your shirt?' I have no poker face and was extremely confused by the comment.
He quickly said, 'terrible pick-up line. I know.' I blurted out, 'that was a pickup line?!' I wasn't trying to be mean. It really popped out of my mouth. He sort of shrugged and walked away. - Sea_Math_8864
My wife provided this one for submission. Overheard in a pub in Galway: If I was an airplane, I'd land on ye - Devrij68
A young lady was standing at the bar near me, and a young guy with flashy brand new clothes walked up to her and asked 'Are you single?' She barely looked at him before walking to the other side of the bar.
I saw this guy do that 2 other times, and also one time he asked 'Do you have a boyfriend?' That girl laughed and walked to the bathroom for a few minutes. - blarch
Someone messaged me on a dating app saying “I’m like your appendix - I want to burst inside you” - SarcastiKatt
About 10 years ago I met a girl at my buddy's July 4th party. She introduced herself, I did the same and asked, 'Do you like bagels?' 'Yeah, I guess..?' I pull up my shirt and made a circle with my hands around my belly button. We got married 4 years later. - strangebabydog

On a very hot summer day, a van stopped and this pudgy metalhead rolled down his window and said: 'I got air conditioner in the back. What do you think, you and me?' It wasn't threatening in the slightest.
Just an honest and very direct question. I replied with 'Ahhh I think not!' He said 'Alright,' smiled and went on his way. I'm still impressed by the way he made it sound so not creepy. - Uncommon-unnamed
Sitting at a bar and a girl I was on a date with was approached by another man who said: 'Your pants look very empty without me in them.' I had offered to give her my pants so that this guy could be in her pants. She laughed and we left the bar. P.S. thanks random drunk guy, I went to 3rd base that night because of you. - FirkFirebeard
A guy walked up to me in the club and said 'You are beautiful, i am beautiful, our children will also be beautiful.' - Pass_the_Lasagna
