People Reveal Their Best Pickup Lines On Reddit

So much awkward cringy-ness here.

It can be a very awkward world when it comes to dating and even more awkward when it comes to trying to meet new single people. It's bad enough to be "single and looking" while trying to avoid the obvious social faux pas of "being single and looking ... desperate" without shooting yourself in the foot by making uncomfortable situations even more uncomfortable.

In case the headline didn't give it away, this article should be taken as something of a warning.

Redditors surrendered their best pickup lines in a very popular post on AskReddit last night. Suffice it to say, things degenerated quickly. Here are some of the very best of what seem to be the very worst. Use them at your peril. Enjoy.


1. This probably works for James Bond. But ONLY James Bond.

"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 ten minutes fast...' "

2. I can't see this resulting in anything more than broken dreams.

"I think you dropped something"


"Your standards. Hi, I'm LatviaSecretPolice"

— LatviaSecretPolice

3. You might get credit for trying, but don't expect anyone to invest.

"Are you a 0% APR loan?

Because I'm having trouble understanding your terms and you aren't showing any interest."

4. How about nope?

"Do you have a raisin?


How about a date?"

— ahampster

5. She might just leave.

"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."

— alawam

6. Then the reality of going home alone sinks in.

"Me: 'Titanic.'

Other person: 'What?'

Me: 'Sorry, not a good icebreaker.'

— -eDgAR-

7. This one might actually work. But only for half the population.

"'Hey wanna make out?'

I'm a female. It works pretty well."
