Have you seen movies where a guy uses a pickup line to get a girl?Â Most likely, you have.Â It happens in most comedy movies, but does it happen in real life?Â Â Of course, it does.Â That doesnâ€™t mean it is a good idea though…
Before focusing on the pros and cons of using a pickup line to meet a girl and get a date, know that pickup lines come in a number of different formats.Â Honestly, it all depends on who you ask.Â Some classify â€œhi, how are you doing tonight?â€ or â€œare you having as much fun as me?â€ as pickup lines.Â For this article, we are going to focus on the funny, yet occasionally cocky pickup lines, like the ones you see in comedy movies.
So, what exactly is a funny, yet cocky pickup line?Â It is one where overconfidence just pours from you.Â It screams â€œI am a good catch.Â I know it and now you will too.â€Â A few cocky pickup lines include:
â€œIâ€™m going outside to make out.Â Do you care to join me?â€
â€œI have big feet!â€
â€œDo you work for UPS?Â Because I could have sworn you were checking out my package.â€
As previously stated, just because there are a ton of pickup lines available online for you to use, it doesnâ€™t mean you should.Â Many times, they backfire.Â For example, the above mentioned pickup line of â€œI have big feet.â€Â We all know what that implies.Â It is great to have confidence, but this takes it a little bit too far.Â You want to score a date with a girl, not have her think you are a cocky jerk.Â If you really want to hit a homerun, focus on rounding the bases first.Â After all, you got to start somewhere.Â If you use this pickup line, at least say hi first.
Another reason why you should avoid cocky pickup lines is because most imply sex.Â Yes, both men and women have one-night stands, but that doesnâ€™t meant the woman you are talking to does.Â If you truly want to score in the bedroom, get an official date first.Â Pickup lines, like â€œIâ€™m going outside to make out.Â Do you care to join me?â€ implies that the woman wants sex right then and there.Â Yes, you may actually get lucky, but donâ€™t make a woman feel slutty.
There are a number of downsides to using the pickup lines that are the brunt of many jokes, but it may just work to your advantage.Â Are you willing to take a gamble or are you really a fun and overconfident guy?Â If so, be yourself and let the pickup lines flow out.Â Depending on what you say, some women may laugh and walk away, some may walk away in disgust, but you may just get a giggler who stays.
In short, you do take a gamble when using a funny and cocky pickup line to meet a woman and ask her on a date.Â So, what should you do?Â Be yourself.Â If a pickup line comes out, just wait and see what happens.Â With that said, donâ€™t research cocky pickup lines at home unless you intend to joke around with friends.Â If you canâ€™t come up with a good line on your own, it is better left unsaid.
