I love getting comments here on Pinoy Guy Guide. Readers of this blog provide very useful stuff for men and I have learned a lot from the other guys just by reading their comments. On this post, I’ve compiled a list of pick-up lines often used by women based on reader’s experiences and that of my own. More often than not, some guys aren’t aware that it’s even a pick-up line so I listed them below for your reference:

“Do you have a spare cigarette?”

I learned this pick-up line from a PGG reader who posted a comment here. His story goes something like this:

‘This is the weirdest…public smoking areas. It happened to me several times and i got scared coz some women would just simply ask if i have a spare cigarette. I had the chance to share the story with my sister..and she said: “Kuya, you are soo slow…that’s a pick-up line!”’

It’s funny because I didn’t know that it was a pick-up line indeed. If I was in his place, I would have simply handed over a spare cigarette. But no, I don’t smoke.

“Hey, you look familiar – have we met?”

This one is so common and it’s very obvious. Even guys use this pick-up line but it works all the time especially when you want to strike up a conversation during times you have no idea what to say. And yes, the ladies use them more often than you think.

“Do you have an extra coin?”

In our office, we have a vendo machine where we could buy some snacks at a lower price. And based from my own experience there was a girl who was a new hire a few weeks ago. It happened to be that I was near the vendo machine when she was buying some Oreo. So it looked like she was running out of coins when all of a sudden she turned to me and asked “Do you have an extra coin?”. So I said yes and gave her some. Before I knew it, we were already chatting around.

“Hey, I like your shirt”

I would never forget my female officemate who told me about this pick-up line. She didn’t use it on me because we’re already friends in the first place, but during one of our lunch-outs she told us that her most-used pick-up line when she meets someone she likes goes something like “Hey, I like your shirt”. According to her, guys are clueless about this, but it is a pick-up line.


Don’t get me wrong – it’s not a pick-up line, but it’s a woman’s body language. Some women are just too shy to think of a clever pick-up line so they use their charm by smiling. So in case a pretty stranger smiles at you, it’s time for you to use your own pick-up line!
