Since the powers that be introduced speed-dating to New York Comic Con it's become widespread knowledge that geeks do in fact date. Ladies can chat up Batman, Darth Vader and Thor in five-minute intervals, then decide whose digits to snag to continue a relationship (or super one-night stand). Two episodes of TLC's "Geek Love" showed the world that comic and video game nerds got game. Well... sometimes.
Guy Code Blog hit up New York Comic Con 2012 to get the scoop from the pretty ladies themselves about the pick-up lines guys use on them during the convention. Puns on cosplay outfits and shouts of "hot," "sexy" and "nice tits" are the stereotypical norm, but some guys are too intimidated to even ask for a picture. As Wonder Woman points out, a few guys wouldn't even put their hand around her waist during a photo. Click after the jump to see what pick-up lines, or general dialogue, to avoid at future Cons and see these sexy babes in full costume.

Nicole Marie Jean, New Hampshire
Lack of pick-up lines: "I usually don't get pick-up lines. Mostly guys are very shy. They tend to not even put their arm around me. They do the hover hand. I get the guys that are afraid to talk to me."
