According to a study, six out of 10 ladies are more likely to fall for a man if he breaks the ice with a light-hearted one-liner.
Conducted by a poll website, the survey, which questioned 4,000 adults, revealed that four out of 10 women were still dating or were married to a man who first approached them with a funny quip.
However, not every line can do the trick for you-it was found that there are do's and don'ts in the dating game as well.
Lines such as "Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?", and "Apart from being beautiful, what do you do for a living?" worked "most of the time".
But "Do you have a map? Because I keep getting lost in your eyes" and "Is there a rainbow, because you're the treasure I've been searching for," were likely to end up in red-faced failure for being "too over the top".
