Favourite Chat Up Line
In a previous post (CLICK HERE) I said that an opening chat up line I used when I was young and dating pretty ladies was, "Have you got a criminal record?"
I was joking, of course, but unfortunately some of my readers took me seriously and thought that I deserved the slap in the face I received from at least one young lady.
The thing is, being serious now, it is very difficult for young men, especially shy ones like me, to say something nice that will not be taken as either too soppy, too cheesy and gooey or just plain stupid.
In my time I have heard many an opening chat up line used at parties and in pubs or at work even. Lines like:
"Heaven must be missing an Angel ... and it's you."
"Do you come here often ... 'cos the place seems brighter today."
"Are you a magician? Because whenever I look at you, everyone else disappears!"
"If I were a cat I'd spend all 9 lives with you."
"Please call 9-1-1, because you just made my heart stop!"
"Will you marry me? Do you have any money? Answer the second question first." (Groucho Marx)
"Marry me and I’ll never look at another horse!" (Groucho Marx)
"Did you pick your nose, or were you born like that?" (used by me - unsuccessfully)
"Did you just fall from Heaven, on your face?" (also used by me, also unsuccessfully)
So ... tell us friends. What is your favourite chat up line and did it work for you?
