I am a firm believer that a woman must be wooed, courted, toasted (pick any verb you like) by a man. Not the other way round. For some reason, guys think that pick-up lines are good ways to strike up conversations with ladies. Love it or hate it, guys use them regularly.
Unfortunately, Christian brothers are known for their lame pickup lines. That has to stop. Enough of the "Sister, I had a dream, and I was rowing a boat, and then just like that ... Fiam! I saw you walking on water towards my boat. You are my wife." Enough of the "Oh, sister, your scarf is tantalizing! Shall we break bread together?" etcetera, etcetera.
I would hope that nobody reading this has used any of these lines or similar lines. I really hope not. But, brothers if you learn nothing else today, please learn this: It's not too late to learn. Read books. Talk to your sisters, cousins, women selling roasted corn and ube, etc. I am sure they will gladly tell you if that line you're about to use will work or if it won't. Ask your guy friends too, as long as they are not using those same black-listed lines.
But please, no more socially awkward, extra lame pickup lines. The world is better without them. More importantly, we ladies deserve better.
What are some of the worst or best pickup lines you've ever heard? Please share!
