My personal favourite is:

If I could re-write the alphabet I'd put U and I together.

*sigh* do they actually think it will work?

You left a comment on my blog a few days ago about wedding photography. I can't figure out how to reply in a non-public forum, so I'm choosing your comments to do so (sorry! and, um, hi everyone!)
Do you mind sending me the websites of the photographers you'd recommend? I'm not sure that we'd go with someone from out of town (we're getting married on a holiday weekend and travel will probably be a bitch) but it's worth a look.
Thanks! And sorry for the 5-inch comment.

What? I can't help it if I have no sense of direction!!!!!

new york dactyl said...

:e: - if you or someone actually said that to me, i'd laugh my ass off...with delight.

at least it shows some imagination and sense of humor.

Mike said...

That is fucking awesome.

I had no idea that did it for you.

If that's the case:

You must be tired, because you've been running around my head all day?

So, um.... are you having my babies now?

Karen said...

I would have totally fallen for that nectar line.

you know why pick up lines are dumb? they work against the purpose you're ostensibly trying to achieve, that is, getting someone to like you by complementing them. in fact, all pickup lines do is draw attention to the person using them (instead of the person they're trying to pick up.) so not only are they corny, but they're inherently self-absorbed, and to me, there is NOTHING less attractive than someone who is unironically self-absorbed...and this is coming from an at-times INCREDIBLY self-absorbed (though also self-aware) person!

Miss Adventurous said...

Unironically, sure, but if someone spit that jive at me facetiously, I'd think it was cute.

You should send a message back and see if there's any substance there. Who knows?

How does the profile picture look?

new york dactyl said...

based on the profile pictures and things that he says about himself.. i'm sticking w/ cheesy and not my type.

his opening sentence is: IF YOUR INTO GAMES, DONT WASTE MY TIME.

if you open with spelling or grammatical errors, i just can't do it. i just can't.

chira said...
