The 10 best/worst pick-up lines – True dating stories

We’ve been asking singles in London what their best and worst pick-up lines are to get them a date. You think you’ve heard them all before, but we assure that there will be a few lines in here to get you laughing and cringing all at the same time!

WARNING: Not all these pick-up lines will result in success and some pick-up lines might actually have detrimental effects.

The rude pick-up line

“I love every bone in your body. Especially mine.” Richard

The offensive

Did you hurt your wings when you fell from heaven? (She turns around to face me) Oh no – you landed on your face! (It never worked!) – Paul

The suave pick-up line

Is it hot in here or is it just you? Jamie

The scary

“Arrest me now – I’m a thief.” *Incredulous look* “No seriously. I came to steal your heart.” Hannah

The sneaky

“I lost my phone number. Do you mind if I borrow yours?” (I nearly fell for this one) Saskia

For all search nerds

“Is your name Google?”, “Erm, no. Why?”, “Because you’ve got everything I’ve been searching for.” Andy

The rude pick-up line’s twin

The human body has 206 bones … want another? Dan

The funny pick up line

A guy once came up to me, fished the ice out of his drink, threw it on the floor and said ‘there’s the ice broken’. Needless to say I went home with him. Tora

The witty pick-up line

I like to go up to guys drinking Leffe and saying ‘ah I see you like European blondes’ (being blonde is a requirement) Laura

The cute pick-up line (although potentially terrifying for a man!)

What’s your jumper made out of? (Girl touches it), Feels like boyfriend material. Zara
