9 Women Reveal The Worst Pickup Lines They’ve Heard From Nigerian Men

August 27, 2020

We asked 9 Nigerian woman to tell us the worst pick up lines men have used on them. Here’s what they had to say:

Mary/23.

There was a tweet asking about the weirdest smell you like. So, I posted on my Instagram story and I was like “you guys don’t want to know.” Then a guy sent a message asking about the smell. I told him that I love the smell of balls fresh out of the shower, and he said he just pictured his in my mouth. And it looked like a perfect match. I was like wtf. It was so weird.

Som/26.

Someone I didn’t know on Twitter texted me saying: “Good morning my thick thigh pharmacist! how things dey go?” Like we’ve barely said a word to each other oh.

Tayo/25.

Someone told me the classic “You look familiar.” It still irritates me till today.

Anu/26.

For pharmacists, we have a saying: “As men of honour, we join hands.” Someone tried to move to me using that line. He moved to me with “as men of honour” so I just unlooked.

M./24.

My sister and I were standing together at a party and he goes “Is this your mother? because you sure look like her daughter.” In my mind, I was like this is boring.

Moji/25.

Your leg beads say you’re available. Single women like you are telling men like me that you want some xxxx”

Yinka/26.

Someone actually walked up to me and said: “This one you’re looking like this, I can make you happy.” In my head, I was like who’s this one? Does he want to be unfortunate?

Dayo/27.

One time, one guy said “your name is Dayo, my name is Ayo. This means that we are destined for each other.” At that point, I knew I was never going to date any Ayo again. Another time, I heard “here’s my card, call me.” So lame.

Dolapo/24.

One guy was like “do you like money because I have a lot to spare.” I’m not one to broke shame but it turned out that he was a broke-ass nigga. The ego and pocket no balance.
