Poetry in picking up woman

Updated on April 27, 2011

Have you ever been in a bar and a man actually tried to use a pickup line on you? This happens to the best of us, and makes us laugh. Men think they are poets, and their pickup lines are their poetry in motion. Recited words they have memorized to entertain their friends and hopefully get lucky.

However, have you or anyone you know ever fell for these? I think it is wonderful when a man actually tries to use romantic poetry to soften your heart. But nasty old pickup lines?

Poetry or pickup lines?

Here are some classic pickup lines that men might use as poetry:

"Is it hot in here or is it just you?"

Translation: He wants to sleep with you.

"I would love to make you breakfast in the morning"

Translation: He wants to sleep with you.

"You pants look great on you, but would look great crumpled up on my floor"

Translation: He wants to sleep with you.

These lines are not poetry to woman, and quite frankly, are immature and a huge turn-off. A classic love poem would be must more desirable shows that the man truly cares, and just not looking for ... well, you know what.

This reference is great for finding a true love poem:

Love Poems

Classic Love Poem

A man can truly show his love and feelings of love and passion by reading, reciting, or sharing a poem.

In this Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem, the first line of which has become so popular as to be considered one of the best classic love poems of all time:

How do I love thee?

Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of being and ideal grace.

I love thee to the level of every day's Most quiet need,

by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for right.

I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs,

and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.

Love and Poetry

A man can truly show his love and feelings of love and passion by reading, reciting, or sharing a poem. The notion of exchanging love poems between a couple, I feel, would be truly romantic. The communication is more personal and intimate, rather than generic and thoughtless.

So the next time you hear "You're so sweet you're giving me a toothache." Your response should be "No, give me a break!"

      Lol! This is funny! My hubby once told me over the phone, (whispering): "I love you". I asked him, why is he whispering. I thought maybe someone's next to him, shy or maybe embarrass. So, I told him, tell it to the world. His response, "But, you are my world". :)

      Good, enjoyable hub!
