21 Of The Smoothest Pick-Up Lines Ever Used

Found on AskReddit.

1. “Isn’t this magical?”

The first time I met my girlfriend, I walked up to her at a party and asked if she wanted to see a magic trick. She replied “yes,” so I asked her to hold out her hand.

I took her hand in mine, looked her straight in the eyes, and deadpanned, “Isn’t this magical?”

She just about melted into a puddle of goo right then and there.

2. “It’s like we’ve already said ‘hi’.”

One of my students caught a girl looking at him and he walked over and said, “It’s like we’ve already said ‘hi’.” Very simple but it acknowledged the tension already there and he was able to move things forward smoothly.

3. “Are you French? Because maDAMN.”

“Are you French? Because maDAMN.”

4. “Would you like to fill out a survey?”

Once one of my friends walked up to a girl and casually asked “Would you like to fill out a survey?” The girl accepted and he handed her his phone with the ‘New Contact’ screen open.

5. “Back in my day, we’d have painted you on the side of an airplane.”

I once heard an old man say to a woman: “Back in my day, we’d have painted you on the side of an airplane.”

6. “Hey this isn’t what I ordered. I ordered a Big Mac, a fry, and a date with you!”

My parents met when my mom was working at McDonald’s in the drive thru window. My dad pulled up and said, “Hey this isn’t what I ordered. I ordered a Big Mac, a fry, and a date with you!”

Somehow that worked and here I am.

7. “Whatever she is doing at 6.”

One of my close friends and I were playing pool in our dorm commons when this knockout brunette sat down with a few of her friends. Me and my friend both noticed she was glancing at him but we continued to play pool. A half hour or so goes by and I asked him what he was doing the following day at 6 (when I finished class), he turns and smiles at her before telling me “Whatever she is doing at 6.” Her jaw dropped and she started giggling, they dated for nearly a year after that. It was the smoothest thing I have ever seen to date.

8. “Has anyone told you what’s wrong with you today?”

I don’t remember getting hit on very smoothly many times. One time I can remember, this college guy walked up to me trying to get me to help a fundraiser or something and after the conversation he said

“Hey one more thing, has anyone told you what’s wrong with you today?”

No..

“Good, because it’s not a damn thing.”

It really made me smile.

9. “Lemme hold dat number.”

When I was 19 I worked at a CD store (remember those?) in the local mall with one the finest women I’ve ever seen. She looked like a mix between Beyonce and Missandei from Game of Thrones. Everyday a new fool would come in and try their luck with her and they all failed, one after another, until one dude…

This guy was Swaggy P before there was a Swaggy P. Pimp as fuck, gold chains, Versace sunglasses, diamond earrings, the whole deal. He simply strolled up to her in what can only be described as the hardest, swaggiest of strolls, and simply asked…

“Wassup wi-chu?”

Smitten she responded…

“I dunno, wassup wi-chu?”

“Lemme hold dat number,” he responded.

“Aiiight” she said.

Dude strolled out of the store not saying a single other word to her. That was the exact moment when I realized I understood nothing.

10. “You coming, then?”

“You coming, then?”

And they left. They dated for several months after.

11. “We were just talking and she’s actually coming home with me tonight.”

Was at a party, talked to this tall thin redhead for not even two minutes. Cops show up and shut the party down, her friend asks her if she is coming home with her that night, so I interrupt her and say “We were just talking and she’s actually coming home with me tonight.” Her friend turns to her and asks “Oh, you’re going home with him then?” She looks at me and nonchalantly says “Looks like I am.” Never in a million years did I expect that to work. Then we went to my place and did things.

12. “I’m sorry. I should have been there to catch you.”

At a fancy party, I was in heels and a little drunk, stumbled down the last few stairs on the staircase. Nothing serious. A smartly dressed guy rushes over, helps me to my feet. Once I’m back to my vertical self, he takes my hand, looks me dead in the eye and says “I’m sorry. I should have been there to catch you.”

Panties dropped all the way to China I swear.

13. “Are you single?”

I was in college and had a pretty TA. At the end of the first class, she asked if anyone had any questions. I asked, “Are you single?” It worked! We’ve been married over 10 years.

14. “Would you hold this for me while I go for a walk?”

I read this one somewhere but never tried.

You hold out your hand to her and tell her this: “Would you hold this for me while I go for a walk?”

15. “You’ll do.”

We were sitting on a couch in a club, getting on in the night. We’d just gotten off work so everyone else was pretty drunk. There’s a few other people on the couch and there’s this one girl – looks like she came with her friends but they’ve since left. We’re checking out the dance floor when he looks over to her and says: “You’ll do.”

I swear from that moment he had her.

16. “I make puppets…and I crochet, for a living.”

Williamsburg, Brooklyn, center of the know hipster universe.

Guy starts chatting with 2 awesome girls at local hipster cafe:

Girls: So what do you do?

Guy: I make puppets.

Girl (1): Wow!

Girl (2): Wow!

Guy: And I crochet, for a living.

Girl (1): OMG!

Girl (2): OMG!

He left with both of them. They were draped over him. Happened in minutes, in literally minutes they were both swept of their feet. Surreal. It was Brooklyn however, this may not work in all corners of the known world.

:-)

17. “When it comes to poison I’m the Dread Pirate Roberts.”

A friend of mine was talking to a girl about her recommending him some books. She recommended some classic book by some female author and warned that if he didn’t like it she would invite him to a tea party (apparently like they did in said book) and he’d find his tea poisoned. He responds with “Well that’s okay, when it comes to poison I’m the Dread Pirate Roberts.” She got a huge grin and asked “did you just reference my favourite movie while talking about my favourite book?” At which point he said “Nah, that’d be inconceivable.”

Pretty sure her underwear disappeared instantly.

18. “What do you think about this couple?”

Already to many comments but here goes, My buddy from work as an awesome pickup line, He sets his phone to selfie mode, walks up to a girl, and asks, “What do you think about this couple?” He then holds up his phone and it shows them two in the phone. It has worked multiple times he reports.

19. “I used to date her; do you mind if I put my arm around you to make her jealous?”

My dad tells the story like this – “so I’m out with a group of friends, and we met up with another group of kids and went to the bar. We’re sitting at a booth and I said to this knock out girl sitting next to me, ‘hey, you see that girl over at the bar? I used to date her; do you mind if I put my arm around you to make her jealous?’ This girl says ‘sure’ and the night goes on, we’re drinking for a couple hours and this girl says, ‘hey, your ex is gone’, and I say, ‘I know, that wasn’t really my ex anyway.’, then she smiles big and tugs on my arm as to scoot me over closer.”

They’ve been married 25 years.

20. “I’ll never treat you the way he does.”

This girl I’d recently met and liked was in a relationship with a douchebag. He abused her physical, emotionally, and verbally and manipulated her into staying with him. Well, on Valentine’s Day they had a huge fight and she went to stay with her friend (who was my friend as well) for a while. We all ended up at dinner one night and I just straight up told her, “You need to dump Douchebag and go out with me. I’ll never treat you the way he does.”

That was seven years ago. She dumped him, we dated and have been married for six years. Sometimes you just gotta be confident and put it out there. Also, we’ve had our ups and downs, but I’ve kept my promise to treat her right.

21. “You know, I think I’d rather dance with you.”

My Grandfather was an officer during WW2. My Grandmother was an army nurse. My Grandma was charged with pairing up army men with women at a small armed forces dance. When my grandpa’s turn came, she pointed out another army nurse across the room and began calling her over. My grandpa turned back to my grandma and said, “You know, I think I’d rather dance with you.” My grandma thought about it, left her post, and joined him on the dance floor.

They married two months later. My grandmother passed when they had been married 58 years. TC mark
