Girls Confess: 7 Cheesy Pickup Lines That Actually Worked On Them!

June 04, 2015 4 min read

We've all experienced the pickup line. We get it, men get nervous when they have to approach a beautiful woman and ask for their number. So they fall back on their favourite go-to pickup line. But the craziest thing is, some of these fall-back lines actually work on us! These 7 women reveal what classic lines sucked them in: (I hope none include "How much does a polar bear weigh?") #1 What do you do for a living? “When I first met my boyfriend, he stuck out his hand and gave me his name, then immediately proceeded to ask me what I did for a living. I couldn’t help but give him a hard time. ‘That's the best you’ve got?’ I joked. ‘Not, are you enjoying the party or a simple how are you?’ But he immediately—and hilariously—recovered. He replied, ‘Oh, I’m just getting started. The obvious follow-up question is, What are your five strengths and weaknesses? We’ll go from there.’ I knew anyone that quick-witted and well-humored was a serious catch.” #2 Hide this in your purse for me. “My college boyfriend picked me up at our first campus-sponsored freshmen mixer on the first night of school. He walked over with a giant roll of caution tape and said, ‘Hey, hide this in your purse for me.’ I initially refused, but ultimately he convinced me that stealing an entire roll of Campus Safety’s caution tape was a good idea. (We decorated our dorms with it and used it for Halloween costumes.) It was a good icebreaker; I’ll give him that." #3 Do I know you? “I used to live over by a college and was walking home from the train when a young guy stopped me on the street and asked, ‘Excuse me, but do I know you from somewhere? Are you in one of my classes?’ I replied no, and he said, ‘Wow, I could have sworn I’d seen you in my pre-law class. Well, now that I’ve got you here, what would it take for me to be able to take you out sometime?’ Even if it was all a clever ruse, I appreciated that he was trying to start off with, ‘Here is this common ground that I think we share.’ I had to turn him down because I’m already in a relationship, but not going to lie: He would have probably gotten my number otherwise!” #4 How about those fireworks? “It wasn’t the Fourth of July or New Year’s at midnight. Just a beautiful evening in Panama City Beach, Florida in late summer. Fireworks were going off down from the boardwalk. My girlfriend and I were chatting about how unusual that was. Then this cute guy came up to me and said, ‘You like that? It cost me a good bit to impress you. Dinner?" #5 You have the best hair in this bar. “I’m very proud of my huge, brown, curly hair. I often wear it sort of unconventionally styled in ‘80s hairdos and make it as big as I can. I was at a bar in a particular area of Chicago where my style was very different from most of the women around me, who were basics, honestly. They were more of the preppy type, as were the men. This very hot guy walked up to me and goes, ‘You have the best hair in this bar.’ I was hooked. I think his comment appealed to my pride of being different and having more of a retro style, both in clothing and hair. He catered to one of my best features instead of saying something generic like, ‘You're beautiful.’" #6 What’s for dinner? “After work, I went to the grocery store to get some vegetables for dinner. I was hanging out, bagging my beets, when a guy reached for the produce bags above my head. I looked over and saw a fireman in a full suit. He asked, ‘What are you making for dinner?’ We met up again at the checkout counter. There, he sealed the deal by grabbing my receipt after I was done paying, writing his number on the back, and ending with a ‘Call me. Or call non-emergency.’ Super cheesy and he's definitely used it before, but I was totally into it.” #7 Nice freckles. “One day while waiting on the subway platform, I noticed a cute guy also waiting a few feet away. We got on the same train car and he sat directly behind me. After a few stops he stood up, tossed something in my lap, and got off the train. It was a tiny origami box, which I unfolded to find this message: ‘Nice freckles. Coffee? —Adam,’ and his phone number. The fact that he complimented a quirky part of me that people don’t usually draw attention to really stood out." What are some cheesy lines that worked on you in the past? Let us know!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
