Here's a couple that men actually tried with me. Some worked, some didn't:

"I, got you flowers 'cause I think you're special, but don't expect me to, buy them all the time." (Can you believe this worked? I married the guy... but got smart and divorced him 12 years later.)

"I love your hair, it's really pretty." (I thanked him and joked about the color coming from a box. He wanted me to prove that it wasn't natural and suggested how it should be done. End of converstation with that Bozo.)

"You have something I'd really like to see." (Worked. What can I say? I liked the guy months before he tossed out the pick-up line.)

"Wanna take a ride on my Harley? It's got a really big seat."(Didn't work. I do have a big butt, but I didn't need him to remind me.)

"I see you're not wearing a wedding ring. Neither am I." (Worked... until I finally figured out that his not wearing a ring didn't mean that he wasn't married!)
