Pickup lines are a tricky business. Oftentimes, they’re creepy to the point of deserving a slap. When they’re not creepy, they’re so corny that they warrant an eye roll so gloriously dramatic, sarcastic, and spiteful that the shame-stink of it will haunt you forever, like the spray of a skunk. And they don’t make tomato juice that can wash shame-stink off of your soul.
We want to arm you with the boldest and strongest, yet non-slappy and non-shamey, pickup lines that you can use on a potential mate. These lines will make an impression without the fear of a woman leaving an impression of her hand on your cheek.
10. “Hi, My Name Is [Your Name], but You Can Call Me Tonight.”
Why bash a girl over the head with a blatant and desperate appeal to get in her pants, when you can use simple wordplay to slightly baffle her with the suggestion that your name is a general description for a time of day?
9. “I’m Not Actually This Tall. I’m Sitting on My Wallet.”
It’s no secret that women want a guy with money. It’s not a matter of gold digging; it’s a matter of not being stuck with an unemployed loser whose yearly income can be counted on his hands and feet. While this line will definitely grab attention, there is a downside: short guys will be giving away the fact that the tiny little man trying to pick up the Amazon at the bar will only get shorter when he reaches for his wallet to pay for dinner, thus putting more importance on the guy actually having money. Being rich makes up for a lot of physical disadvantages.
