Go Super to Listen Go Super!

You wouldn’t think that the former star of Dawson’s Creek would have much trouble getting girls. But Joshua Jackson says he was always a shy guy who had trouble thinking of things to say to women he didn’t know. Even if he came up with the perfect pickup line, he would be too nervous to go up to a girl and try to use it.

In the dating world, when you pick someone up, you get someoe to go out with you. You pick up someone you just met, not someone you have known for a long time. A great pickup line can help make the whole process of picking someone up go more smoothly.

A good pickup line is something clever and flirtatious that you say to someone when you first meet, if you want to make the person like you. And a bad pickup line is something cheesy, awkward, or just plain offensive that you say to someone you just met, right before that person rolls her eyes and walks away.

What is your favorite pickup line? Do you find it easy or hard to talk to people you don’t know?

Examples

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

“I can never think of a smooth pickup line when I see a pretty girl I want to talk to.”

“Graham is a terrible flirt, he always thinks of the cheesiest pickup lines.”

Pickup lines don’t work for me. I like guys who are honest and direct.”

According to me ;a pickup line would be like a real gentleman who is sweet-talking to girls, that whoever girl would pay attention to,whenever the circumtances come up!
