The 7 best pick-up lines, courtesy of the women of Reddit
Since flirting with random strangers can be a nerve-racking experience, the best way to break the ice is just to say something everyone can laugh along with.
This is what users on r/AskReddit agreed upon when asked to share some of the pick-up lines that actually impressed them. Some are corny and cheesy while others are pretty sweet. Either way, none cross into creepy or uncomfortable territory and that's most important.
Here's a look at seven of the best pick-up lines out there, according to the women of Reddit.
1. Puns are fun, but never a guarantee.
"He said, 'I wish you were my big toe so I could bang you on all of my furniture.' Didn’t work, but I got a good laugh out of it." –picklep00ps
2. Sweet and sincere is ideal.
"My personal favorite: Walks up, holds out hand, 'Hi, would you mind holding this for me while I take a walk in the park?'" –shanto5269
3. Chocolate is always a good idea.
"He walked up to me, asked if I'd like a kiss, then offered from a big bag of Hershey's kisses. After that, he walked away." –gluttony4
4. Talking about the weather isnt always a no-no.
"I’m from Arizona. Some guy stopped dead in his tracks & said 'Whoa, the temperature today is 110 and I think I just figured out why.' Mostly it was his confidence and smirk that sold me. But that line was pretty damn good too." –worstbehaviorrr
5. And a good line is necessary when online dating.
"When I was on Tinder, my default pic was from Halloween the previous year. I dressed up as Ensign Crusher from Star Trek: TNG. I matched with a cute guy, and he messaged me first: 'Permission to come aboard?' That was 3.5 years ago, and we now have a dog together." –bearrington
6. Sometimes youve gotta rely on the classics.
"Him: Are you a model?
Me: ... No.
Him: Oh, when did you quit?
Made me laugh!" –sausagebuttie
7. And occasionally, a good pick-up line can end in happily ever after.
"'Hey, you're beautiful. Can I tell you that again next Saturday over dinner?' Lol. Maybe cheesy but I guess it worked because we're married." –suddenterrible_haiaku
