Pick-up Lines That May or May Not Work

For reasons I can't figure out, though I'll bet it involves massive embarrassment, a few of my co-workers want to create a profile for me on a prominent online dating site, but they don't want me to provide any input.  They think they know what will work for me, and, in fact, one said he could guarantee me a date in one week.  I reminded him that I could find several dates in one day if I dropped my own stringent criteria.  He thinks I don't know what I want.  He said I'm a little too boring....humdrum, as they say.  That figures.

It appears that this is going to happen whether I participate or not, since these are the kinds of co-workers I have.  I'm a bit nervous about the whole thing.  But it did make me think about what kind of pick-up lines might work better than a bogus online dating profile.  Here are a bunch or really bad ones from the Goodreads.com, sonicseduction.net and Askmen.com websites:

Excuse me, is this seat taken?

Would you like to dance?

You look like you might be interested in some great conversation.

Would you like an escort to your car?

I just thought you should know that you have a really nice.....

Your eyes are really cute.  (pause)  Oh, wait, I think the right one is a little cuter than the left one.

I love that dress on you.  You must have had a lot of practice on Barbie as a child.

Did you hurt yourself when you fell from Heaven?

Are your legs tired?  'Cause you've been running through my mind all night!

Is it hot in here, or is it just you?

Are you a library book, 'cause I'd like to check you out!

I'm trying to rearrange the alphabet so U and I are next to each other.

Are you a parking ticket?  'Cause you've got FINE written all over you!

Hey, I lost my phone number....can I have yours?

Are you accepting applications to your fan club?

Did the sun come up, or did you just smile at me?

You're hot, I'm ugly, let's make some average babies!

Is your name Google, 'cause you've got everything I'm looking for!

Kiss me if I'm wrong, but dinosaurs still exist, right?

Well, here I am!  What were your other two wishes?

Was your dad a baker?  'Cause you've got the nicest buns I've ever seen!

Did you have Lucky Charms for breakfast?  'Cause you look magically delicious!

Something's wrong with my cell phone, 'cause your number isn't in it!

Somebody call the cops, 'cause it must be illegal to look that good!

I'm not a photographer, but I can picture us together!

If you were a potato, you'd be a really nice potato.

Is your name Wifi, 'cause I think I can feel a connection here.

Do you believe in love at first sight?  Or should I walk by again?

Excuse me, is this seat taken?

Have a great evening, everyone!
