Cheesy Chat Up Lines

I was looking on the Google Keywords rankings and Cheesy Chat Up Lines is the most popular search term after Chat Up Lines itself. This is surprising as the idea that people would actually want to be cheesy is a little odd!

What does cheesy actually mean? Well the dictionary gives a number of related meanings, but these two are probably the most relevant (since we aren't really talking about omelettes here):
  1. Something that is unintentionally kitschy, tacky, or of poor quality, but these flaws go unnoticed by the admirers of said thing.
  2. Something that was popular at some point in the past, but that now seems lame in retrospect.
So the key point is that a Cheesy Chat Up Line implies that some people use the line thinking that it is actually good! Note that "corny" on the other hand means "dull and tiresome but with pretensions of significance or originality".

In any case, my "favourite" cheesy line:
  • Did it hurt? When you fell out of heaven.
I have seen it used and people who use it just don't seem to understand that it once was a nice line, but that the world has moved on. Think you might be falling into the same trap. Check out the other top 10 Cheesy Chat Up Lines.

Best Chat Up Lines

Some of the best chat up lines:

  1. Hi, I'm doing a survey ...What's your name? What's your phone number? Are you free next Saturday?
  2. I think there is something wrong with my phone. Could you try calling it for me to see if it rings?
  3. Can I borrow your phone please? (Why?) I need to phone God and tell him I have found his missing angel.
  4. You see my friend over there? He wants to know if you think I'm cute?
  5. The only thing your eyes haven't told me is your name.
  6. Excuse me, did you just touch my ass? (No!). Damn!
  7. If I were to ask you for sex, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?
  8. Shall we talk or continue flirting from a distance?
  9. What's your sign?
  10. I have only three months to live.
