When it comes to breaking the ice, not everyone can get away with just a flick of an eyebrow and a sleek "How you doin'?"
That's when pickup lines come into play — some subtle, some funny, some cheesy as hell.
Whatever method people choose, everyone has their own style of getting noticed, so there's no need to criticize. However, there is a need to pay tribute to some of the corniest pickup lines, and that's exactly what graphic designer Alyssa Duhe is doing in her daily doodles.
"Could you step away from the bar? You're making the ice melt."
What started as an ordinary daily drawing challenge, Duhe's A Daily Pickup Line Tumblr has quickly turned into a full-fledged illustration blog, full of witty lines people use to attract the object of their affection.
"I am happy to say that not all of these come from personal experience. At the beginning, I was pretty selective on which lines I would use. But since I've been making pickup line illustrations for awhile now, they have been getting more and more off the wall. My main rule is — the sillier the better," Duhe told A Plus.
Duhe mentions her favorite line is also scribbled on her business card: "If you were a laser, you'd be set on stunning."
"It may or may not get me some number or weird looks," she says.
