Some pickup lines that are doomed to fail are asking the person if she is tired because she has been running through your head all night and telling the person that it is her lucky day because you picked her to talk to. Other pickup lines doomed to fail are lines that are overtly sexual in nature or that presume the woman is attracted to you.
Asking the person if she is tired because she has been running through your head all night is a line that is doomed to fail because it is an old line that the person has likely heard before. An unoriginal pickup line is not likely to succeed. In addition, telling a person that she is lucky because you are talking to her is not likely to succeed because the line expresses arrogance and self-grandiosity instead of confidence. Another arrogant pickup line that is doomed to fail is telling the woman that you are here and then asking her to name her second wish because her first wish just came true.
A similar pickup line that is doomed to fail asks the woman if she wants you to buy her a drink or if she just wants the money instead. This line fails because it doesn't make the woman feel attractive and it makes the woman feel like she is for sale. Pickup lines that only express a sexual interest in a woman are also doomed to fail because most women find them insulting. An example of this type of doomed pickup line is asking the woman if you can sleep with her because you lost your teddy bear. Another doomed sexual pickup line asks the woman where his friend can find him in the morning.
