Of course, it got me thinking about my own dating days and two incidents that still make me laugh twenty some years later.
The first was back in the early 1980's, I was at my favorite club dancing to all the New Wave tunes while wearing my pointed spike heels. After four or five songs in a row, I had to give my poor aching feet a break so I went to sit down and have a drink. While I was sitting there, this guy comes up to me and asks me to dance. With my feet aching and my shoes off under the table I politely declined by saying "No Thank You." But before I could tell him my feet were aching and I would love to dance after a short break, he said to me
"Don't thank me, thank God someone asked you to dance"
He then turned on his heel and left. Okay, not really a pick-up line but a statement that got me laughing and within a few weeks, Mike and I were good friends and dance buddies.
The second was in the late 1980's, I was at a bar walking through the crowds when I felt a hand on my butt. I turned around and this guy says to me with the biggest smile I've ever seen
"That was me, I just put my phone number in your back pocket, you've got until Friday to use it."
Who could keep a straight face after that. It wasn't long before Marco and I became great dance buddies but I never did use that infamous number.
Just for fun, here are some of the lines I found that night while surfing the net:
I've heard sex is a killer. Want to die happy?
Excuse me, but I'm new in town, can I have directions to your place?
Can I buy you a drink or would you just prefer the five bucks?
Am I cute enough yet or do you need more to drink?
You know what would look great on you? Me!
Can I read your T-Shirt in brail?
Do you believe in the hereafter? Well, then I guess you know what I'm here after.
The body is made up of 90% water and I'm thirsty.
Baby, you must be tired because you've been running through my mind all night!
That's a nice shirt. Can I talk you out of it?
Sure makes me glad I'm out of the bars!
