We’ve all been there ladies, had a guy cough up a cheesy pick-up line. Well breaking news fellas, if you think these may actually work you’re wrong.

According to a new survey, conducted by a new dating app Flirt Planet, 95 percent of women don’t fall for a guy with corny chat-up lines.

More than half said they prefer a simple compliment: “You have lovely eyes”.

Cut the small talk, 44% of women said they would be happy if the guy offered to buy them a drink

And if you’re going to use a cheesy pick-up line don’t use these! The poll found that the worst pick-up line was “I like your dress but it would look better on my bedroom floor,” followed by “I’m looking for treasure – can I have a look around your chest?”

Now if you use a line that lands you a first date, the findings of the poll also suggested that women do not like discussing previous relationships or politics.

Honestly, I give a lot of credit to guys who even attempt to use a cheesy pickup line. It’s a lot of pressure and at least it cuts the tension.

But if you’re going to win over a girl, why not just ask her how she is? And be yourself. Cut the cheese (don’t really) just be yourself and straight forward. What do you have to lose?
