Guys, drop the crappy come-ons. Pick up lines that are too raunchy, unoriginal, or just plain rude will get a girl's attention, but not for the right reasons.
We polled women and asked them to dish on the worst bait men have thrown at them. Have a laugh and make a mental note not to use these.

“‘I love that you’re a big girl… all of the other girls here are so little.’ Did you mean tall? Well, too late.” – Julia C.
“I was going through a bar ready to leave when a guy grabbed my arm, got really close to my face and asked, ‘Woah, are your eyes hazel?’ "I’m not sure if I should give him credit because it stopped me in my tracks, but it didn't stop me from walking out the door.” – Brianna S.
“Handy that I have my library card, because I’m totally checking you out.” – Melissa C.
“‘Do you want to a get a drink tonight? No time to waste with that ticking biological clock.’ SERIOUSLY?!” – Lauren R.
“A guy with blue eyes has said to me before, ‘Careful, no lifeguard on duty.’” – Lauren P.

“‘I can't tell by your photos... but did you choose the thug life, or did the thug life choose you?’ (Just copied and pasted this from a message I got on a dating app.)” – Sarah H.

“The worst pickup lines are always the typical ones like, ‘Hey, are you from around here?’ But it also has a lot to do with your body language and tone. If you're drunk, sloppy, and slurring your words, then no line will work.” – Christina S.
“Are you gonna eat the rest of that?" - Nicole C.
“Are you a Harley? Because I want to turn you on, ride you, and make you get so loud everyone hears you coming.” - Alex F.
