Should I Chat-Up or Shut-Up ??

Chat up linesAs most of you know I am the best catch in this blog, but I have a slight problem in so much that I haven’t chatted up women for years. Now I am asking for your help in how I should go about it.

Should I be forward such as “Is that your husband you are leaving here tonight?”girl huh

Should I be backward such as ” My Grandfather fancies you”

Should I move in sideways such as ” Where is the loo?”

Or should I just SHUT UP !!

Have you got a good line for me to make a woman swoon, or have you experienced a bad one liner??

RoSy’s last danceΒ  Chris De Burgh LADY IN RED

55 Comments on “Should I Chat-Up or Shut-Up ??

  1. Ask if there’s a state missing from America “Because you’re the only ‘Ten I See’ ” πŸ˜‰


  2. This reminds me of when I was in my 20s and at a bar. A business man dangled his key cars in my face. He had a Mercedes key chain and said, “See that? A Mercedes. Do you wanna go for a ride in my Mercedes?” I said, “No thanks, I’d rather take a walk in my Levis.” πŸ™‚


  3. I like to be asked for a dance. I guess you’d have to be at a place that’s playing music or put a tune on. But – that’s just me. I was never into lines – I was more about the attitude & conversation.


      • I have got the music but haven’t a clue how to attach it to a comment. I’m good at images but music is a new one on me. How’s that for a chat up line ?? Go and have a drink while I fix the music RoSy πŸ˜€


  4. I guess it’s still too early in the morning for me to be witty Raph, (great question by the way) so I’m thinking a probable good one is any sincere sentence that begins with the words, Do you know you have the most … (and then whatever attribute you honestly think would be appropriate) lovely eyes, beautiful hair, way about you, pleasant laugh. Everyone likes a sincere compliment, I think! Of course (starting to wake up here) You’re so clever with verbage that I’m thinking you are most aware of that one. So perhaps this one… Hello, I think I’ve just met the person I’d like to spend the rest of my life with!” Great post Ralph, as always, Penny πŸ™‚


      • Perfect Ralph! πŸ™‚ I’ll go read the blue eyes post! Okay I’m back. She has serious issues (if she’s intelligent, and emotionally stable then she should definitely already know it and it should not need confirmation of same – I feel sorry for her) If someone commented on my lovely eyes I’d say “thank you”! You said some very nice things! Have a pleasant day/evening Ralph. Penny xx


  5. Hahah! I have a perfect pick-up line for you! =p

    Be like : ‘Hey do you believe in love at first sight? Or should I walk by again?’ πŸ˜‰


  6. I have dated recently and I see I must have dated the wrong guys, I never got those crack up lines…..sorry chatup lines……my guys were too normal, guess that is why I am still sing;e πŸ™‚
    Strangely enough when I was younger and someone said to me I have lovely blue eyes or lips , I never believed him, now being older no one says that anymore to me 😦 …and I would believe it now………I love romance so chat up lines don’t work anyway for me, meet somewhere romantic or go for a picnic on a woolly blanket…….


    • Hi again Ute, the Lady with the blue lips and eyes. Quite a fetching combination ! It seems to me then that normal guys are not for you so you may have to steer towards abnormality if you want to be hitched. So a chat up line such as ” I turn blue when I swim in cold water. We would make a lovely pair of Smurfs together !!” wouldn’t work then. No?? πŸ˜€ Ralph x


  7. Many women really like the idea of being asked for a dance because not that many men like to dance. When you get to know the gal a little better, you might be old-fashioned and tell her that you fancy her. I’d love it if my hubbie said that to me.
    As far as lines…too much room for a nasty rebuttal. I would be offended if I guy I didn’t know walked up and said something like, “Do you realize you have the most fantastic green eyes?” But, women are different. Maybe another woman would love it.
    So there you go–total confusion.


    • Hi green eyes……..put that gun away again !! The trouble is Teresa…..and don’t tell anybody….just between us two, okay? There is hardly a woman I don’t fancy…..must get my eyes tested. So no crazy one liners then, just total confusion. That’s normal for me πŸ˜€ Hugs. Ralph x


      • Put your dancin’ shoes on!


  8. Ralph the most beautiful pick up line ever used on me…and it worked was “Hi my name is Robert, my friends call me Bob what is your name?’ as he reached out to shake my hand. Been with him 28 almost 29 years, just celebrated our 25th with a renewal of vows. I don’t think pick up lines are very wise, just being yourself is all it would take. Well…now wait a minute IF I were single could get to Spain and help with Ms. Quirky well I would be yours then Ralph ! πŸ™‚


    • Why are the best, intelligent, beautiful women all married……..except for the single ones who are also the best, intelligent, beautiful women that I will never seem to meet !! πŸ˜‰ Congratulations Len to you both..25 years…so I would have to wait for ever for you to come over to Spain. I can’t wait that long, sorry Len…..but it’s the thought that counts. Hugs. Ralph x


      • Well my thoughts were lusty.. but for Ms. Quirky, so it is just as well I suppose! thank you for the compliment ..(don’t get many of those anymore so take what I can get) Ralph I am sure there are plenty of women after you you just need to slow down and let them catch you ! πŸ™‚ Have a blessed beautiful day my friend!


      • Oh Len, so it was the house, not me!! I did mean the compliment and I am going to take your advice and put the brakes on. Here goes: braking parachute deployed, hand brake on, engines in reverse thrust, foot brake pedals through the floor, anchor thrown out *screeching to a halt and looking in the rear view mirror* Have a lovely week my lustful friend. Ralph x


  9. I’ve had a good share of lines given to me. The funniest two: 1. After being asked out my response “I have a boyfriend” … The man’s response “I’m sure he won’t mind”

    2. Man: “What are you doing tonight?”
    Me: ” I’m tired, just going to bed”

    Man: “Can I join you?”

    Then there are the corny ones like “Are tour fΓ©rtil tired–because you’ve been running around my head all day”


  10. Hi Frances, welcome and thank you for visiting. We could improve on this one I think
    1) Your reply “I have a boyfriend” his reply “So have I, yours !!” πŸ˜‰
    The rest are brilliant. Have a great week. πŸ˜€ Ralph x


  11. I had a good one some years ago. It won me for my man, so it worked for him.. Now, I have to tell you he’s a pretty straight forward kind of guy. This is what he said:
    “What’s your name?”
    Now, you may think this is pretty plain and simple however; it’s not always in the words, my friend… Oh no…! It’s ‘how’ you say it that counts…. A little flirty, a little ‘I think I want to know you’ body language; a little eyes moving over one’s body suggesting appreciation (not sleezy, now). Don’t do sleezy; do sweet sleeze, if anything…!
    Should you need any more relationship advice I shall be on call…!
    Your ever faithful friend who wants to see you happily waking up to present some delightful woman with a cuppa, Carolyn… xoxoxo


    • Hey! That is the sort of advice I have been asking for. Do you mind if I practice on you while looking at my black cat Sonic who is sitting on my lap. Okay, here goes. “Hi Carolyn. What’s your name?” Eyes moving over your glossy fur coat and into your big black eyes in a suggestive tone of thanks, sweetly sneezing. Good eh?? I will surely need more of your wonderful advice and your last two lines are what dreams are made of. Your English friend from Spain. Hugs. Ralph xx


  12. I think I am usually the first one to drop a line, and the best come back was, “Is anyone with you? May I join you for coffee?” My husband was shy, and someone had to tell him that I was interested in him. I think you are no stranger to chatting, and you are having a great time with it. I want to invite you into the Ligo Circle of Admiration for yor great chatting ability. I think the women are going to flock to join your fun chatting! Check out this link for your membership dues. πŸ™‚


    • Good morning Marsha. At 0300hrs this morning I was just about to shut down when your lovely comment came in. I will have to answer you in two parts. Firstly, as a man, I cannot multi-task and secondly I am waiting to find out what you are doing with Ligo. So I will answer the second one later. That’s really nice how you met your husband *crying*. Ralph x


  13. Here is something funny, real life funny

    This is a quick story as I found the chat up line fantastic.
    On an internet dating site, is my profile and photo up, so I get a message from a guy:

    I thought this was very inventive so I answered equally with
    His response to this was:
    I was amazed about his vocabulary. So my answer was:
    β€œYou are a man of few words.”
    And he answered:
    β€œ You are not exactly War and Peace either”
    So I left it at that, as I do not think I could have a decent conversation with THAT.


    • hi dear friend KC whom I unfollowed as I got 90+ comments in my outlook from you when I woke up one morning. πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for your lovely comment. Do you agree that I should chat up women or just shut up?
      I am on tenderhooks for your answer Hugs Ralph x


      • WHOA?? Seriously??? OMG I don’t know how to fix that maybe there’s a virus or something tsk. You should definitely chat up! haha


      • I may re-follow you KC when I return from hospital as I miss reading your silly comments. Now how would I chat you up as you are single and another head scratcher like Kate (Milkshakes). “Hi KC. I’m Ralph. Bluefish Way ?? Don’t look so puzzled, memory loss is normal for a woman who is thinking about asking me out πŸ˜‰ ” Ralph x


  14. I’m not a pick up line kinda girl, but I have always loved the phrase Richard Gere used in Runaway Bride when he asked his ex-wife to marry him…..”so you wanna….huh?” Makes me laugh everytime. What happened to the standard, “Hi! I’m Ralph, but my friends call me Goof”. πŸ˜‰


    • Hello Lori, welcome to my chat up corner of this blog. Do you really think that calling me Goof would get me pulled ?? Maybe calling me an English Gentleman would frighten off you American women !! How about ” Hello. I’m Ralph and English. The English always seem to play the bad guys in the modern movies. I’m a bad guy”. πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph x


      • No, no, no. At least all the women I know are suckers when it comes to accents. Isn’t Goof better than Mr. DM?


      • I don’t know IS Goof a better puller than a dominant male ? A comparison never tested by me πŸ˜€


  15. Loved this πŸ™‚ Guys & their pickup lines… and our responses – ALWAYS make me laugh πŸ™‚


    • Thank you for your fun comment. I have come to the conclusion that chatting up is not my style, I think that just chatting is, and hugs. Big hug. Ralph x πŸ˜€
