Pick Up Lines and Put Downs

A pick up line is something someone says in the hope of forming an acquaintance with someone else, usually in anticipation of sexual relations.

A put down is something you say that's disparaging, belittling, or snubbing. The French have a phrase for it - l'Esprit d'escalier - 'the spirit that passes on the staircase'.

Here are some of the best put downs to some common pick up lines:-

He - Can I buy you a drink?
She - Actually I'd rather have the money.

He - Hi. Didn't we go on a date once? Or was it twice?
She - Must've been once. I never make the same mistake twice.

He - How did you get to be so beautiful?
She - I must have been given your share.

He - Your face must turn a few heads.
She - And your face must turn a few stomachs.

He - Go on, don't be shy. Ask me out.
She - Okay, get out.

He - What would you say if I asked you to marry me?
She - Nothing. I can't talk and laugh at the same time.

He - Can I have your name?
She - Why? Don't you already have one?

He - Hey baby, what's your sign?
She - Do not enter.

He - If I could see you naked, I'd die happy.
She - If I saw you naked, I'd probably die laughing.

He - Where have you been all my life?
She - Where I'll be the rest of your life - in your wildest dreams.
