The Cringe-Worthy Pick-Up Lines People Have Actually Used

New research says that the pick-up line is officially dead!

According to a new study on behalf of a free community dating app, HUB over half of the people thinks one-liners should be forbidden. And it’s men who say they should be outlawed compared to women.


The reason is, that most pick-up lines are cringe-worthy and outright cheesy!


In spite of the cheesiness, there are about a third of people who confess that a pick-up line has actually worked on them.


Forty-two percent of men have fallen for a one-liner and only 27% of women could say the same.


Among the winning lines to actually work were “are you a Pokemon? Cause I’d like to take a Pikachu” and “Can I have a picture of you so I can show Santa what I want for Christmas?”


There are other ways that people have attempted to land a mate.


Nearly two thirds (64%) admitted to purposefully taking a long time to reply to a message in an attempt to “play it cool.”
