Do you wash your pants with Windex? Because I can see myself in them.

Are you a parking ticket? Because you have fine written all over you.

Is that a mirror in your pants? Because I can see myself in them.

This video is about the pickup lines that you should never use, which is pretty much all of them. Unless you can pull it off and be funny about it and you know who you are if you can and you should know who you are if you can't. You shouldn't be using them anyway. We've all heard some pretty lame ones. And when they come out and they're funny and guys aren't taking them seriously it might actually work as a funny opener but if you're actually using them like a, "Come here often?" or "I lost my, number can I have yours?" and you actually think it's serious it's never going to work.

So stick to having a conversation. Use some sort of part of the environment to have an opener but don't use pickup lines please. Use something from the environment. So talk about the drink that their having. Ask them about the bartender, if they're a good pourer. Or if you're at a coffee shop asked what they're eating or what they're listening to or what their reading. Use something that's in your surroundings that actually makes them think, "Oh wow their actually paying attention to what's going on and not just trying to take me home."

Ask them a real question and pretend like you're interested even if you're not. So if they're reading a book be like, "Oh my gosh I wanted to pick that up," or if they just ordered a crazy looking Margarita ask them about what they drink is or depending on where else you are there's a million ways to kind of connect with someone without using a lame pickup line. Because that's what they are, just lane.

You're so hot you make the sun jealous.
