It can be tough out there trying to find a lasting relationship. Hell, it can be hard just to find a match on Tinder. They say that “there’s someone for everyone,” you just have to get out there and find them. Unfortunately, most people don’t have as much game as they’d like to think, as this week’s AskReddit makes very clear. When asked about their best pickup line, well, the people of Reddit certainly delivered. Some are good, some are terrible, and some people should never interact with other humans ever.
GambitDota‘s friend certainly has game. Respect.
A buddy of mine is really good with women. He does this one thing on our uni campus where he’ll go up to a random girl.
Him: “hey I have a question and need a woman’s advice”
Her: “sure what’s up?”
Him: “let’s say I see a really cute girl, do I go up and talk to her or is that too direct?”
Her: 99.9999% of them say: “you should totally go talk to her.”
Him: he then introduces himself.
I’ve done it two times and got two numbers out of it so it’s clearly a 100% success rate!
Shirt_and_Stacks might not understand the concept of a pickup line.
I remain completely silent. Sitting at the end of the bar, licking my eyebrows.
Sometimes a solid fruit pun is the best way to go according to ahampster.
Do you have a raisin?
How about a date?
Anatomy puns are popular as well, like this one from MrBuddyHolly.
Are you my appendix? Because I don’t know anything about you but this feeling in my gut is telling me that I should take you out.
Apparently nothing gets women hot and bothered like insulting all of the other women around them. Reddit user alawam swears by this one, but this weird twist on the neg doesn’t seem like the way to go.
I’m going to have to ask you to leave. You’re making the other girls look bad.
I have personally used it and succeeded.
How could any woman resist this offer from luckynumberblue?
Wanna go halfsies on a bastard?
At least Palifaith knows how to manage expectations.
I’m no weatherman, but you can expect a few inches tonight.
Is wildkat57 looking for a date or financial advice?
Are you a 0% APR loan?
Because I’m having trouble understanding your terms and you aren’t showing any interest.
PyedPyper draws inspiration from one of the greats.
My personal favorite comes I believe from Sean Connery:
“My magic watch says you aren’t wearing any underwear.”
“Well your watch must be broken because I am in fact wearing underwear.”
“Damn thing must be 10 minutes fast…”
LatviaSecretPolice prefers to be honest right up front.
“I think you dropped something”
“Your standards. Hi, I’m LatviaSecretPolice”
Reminding women of either Leonardo DiCaprio in his prime or the deaths of thousands of people might backfire on -eDgAR-.
Other person: “What?”
Me: “Sorry, not a good icebreaker.”
Puns + props = romantic gold for andrewp37.
Get like 20 limes and approach target. Drop them all and then try to pick all them up and say ” can you help me? I’m really bad at pickup limes”
The whole list is worth checking it, if only to not feel quite so hopeless in your search for connection.
