The pros and cons of cheesy chat lines

If you’re like a lot of people, you love cheesy chat lines, but you’re not sure if they can actually be used to flirt with women. A search of the various internet dating advice sites will often give you conflicting advice when it comes to using pickup lines. Some will say yes, use the chat lines and others will tell you not to. So what are you supposed to do? This article will go over some of the pros and cons of pickup lines and perhaps help you make the decision to use or not to use.

1) Advantage: Responding to the lines gives you something to say

We have all been there, you see someone who attracts you and you would like to meet but you can’t think of anything to say. The response lines give you something to say. Even the cheesiest of cheesy conversation lines like, “What’s it like to be the most beautiful girl in the room?” or “Do you have raisins? No? How about a date?” give him something to say until he can remember his own name again.

Con: may not be the right thing to say

Chat lines are meant to be fun. Like any other joke, when wrongly said, a funny conversation can fail and leave your loved one looking at you like you’re an idiot at best and pouring a drink over your head at worst. Make sure the one you use is safe.

2) Advantage: The fun pick-up lines show your personality.

Most women will tell you that one of the top five things they look for in a man is a sense of humor. Since dating phrases are jokes, using one can show that you really have a sense of humor. Make her laugh and you will quickly have her eating out of your hand.

Con: wrong choice of line can prove you are an idiot

Lines like “I’m here, what were your other two wishes?” or “I just put you on the top of my to-do list” can get me to slap you or worse. Lines like these don’t show you that confident, they show you both arrogant and too dumb to notice. Be very careful when choosing which line to use. You want to show a sense of humor, not the need to get kicked.

3) Advantage: cheesy chat lines are rare

Believe it or not, pickup lines aren’t used very often these days. People still love to pick up lines, search for them on the internet and share them with their friends, but they are rarely used to flirt with women anymore. They’ve gotten a bad rap for being used solely by that guy. You know the one in the polyester pants suite who wears gold chains. Since everyone jokes about them but no one wears them, some women may see them as a refreshing change of pace. Just be sure to practice delivery before testing the line. Badly delivered pickup lines are the reason they are nearly extinct.

Disadvantage: pickup lines get a bad rap

The reason pickup lines are so rare is that it’s hard to master the timing and delivery of the really cool pickup line without being labeled cheesy or obnoxious. If you can’t master the delivery, just don’t use them.
