You men may think that saying “Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?” to a woman will sound definitely hackneyed and a nice girl deserved something new and witty as a compliment… But better think again.
For there is a poll showing that deep in their heart of hearts women love to be lured by a time-honored phrase, even when they know that it has been used oh so often before.
The results reveal that no matter how women may react to a cheesy line outwardly, in fact they fall for them, so don’t hesitate to say for the umpteenth time “Now that’s a nice dress, I bet it’d look good on my bedroom floor.”
But let the figures speak. Nearly 40 per cent of women admitted to agreeing to going out on a date with a man who used a hackneyed line to start a conversation with them and ten per cent let the date evolve into a serious relationship.
So when men ask “Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?” six women out of ten credit them with a sense of humor and think it shows their confidence.
A chat-up line must be impressive, say only five per cent of women, who may not like hearing something like “I miss my teddy bear. Would you sleep with me?”
Well, women did add that wealth and good looks will do much to increase the possibility of their falling for the man, but the man has to begin with something, and it may as well be “Do you mind if I stare at you up close instead of from across the room?”
A spokesperson for Mrgreen, commenting on the study they commissioned, remarked that these lines have been thrown on women’s laps for so long that it may seem only a desperate or a foolhardy man would use them. But now we know that they fall on benevolent ears.
He went on to say that cheesy lines like that seem to have gotten a new dimension when a man can pull them off glibly and lightly, making the woman smile and showing that he is able to keep up an entertaining talk by saying lightly: “Is your father a thief? Because someone stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.”
