Sometimes I find that I get a series of emails that follow a similar theme, so I figured I can group them together every once in a while for your enjoyment… double the Creepers, double the fun! One such theme lately has been the emergence of the super cheesy Pick Up Line emails. I know that in real life, face to face, most dudes wouldn’t really go for trying the tiresomely old or super lame pick up lines on a lady in order to garner her attention…but for some reason, in email form, it is still a valid (and apparently popular) approach. I really don’t know… maybe this works on some people, but I’m just not a fan of the uber-corny one-liners. Couple that with the fact that pretty much 100% of the guys who send these pick up line letters are questionable in many, many other ways and you’ve got some of my least favorite W&C admirers yet. My sister, who has also tried a foray into online dating, has lent me a couple of her own hilarious pick up line emails to share with you too.
I get it – it’s hard to break the ice online and standing out is a challenge as well. But it is the year 2012 and I just know there has to be a better way. I say try something original and genuinely interesting next time and skip the W&C one-liner comedy routine. What do you guys think…are cheesy Pick Up lines ever effective online or in real life?

Pick Up Line email #3 – Subject: Hello…
I was wondering if you could help me out. I am fairly new to L.A. and am looking for a locksmith. I was wondering if you knew a good locksmith, you could ask them if they have the combination to your heart. From reading your profile, you are a woman I would love to get to know.
