20 Worst “Romantic” Lines Ever


I went to a singles bar once and…sorry, that’s all I got.

Here are some lines I didn’t use:

  1. “You’re like a keyboard–your just my type.” Dated reference (requires knowledge of something called a “typewriter”). Still, if you’re cruising retirement homes…
  2. “I’m new in town. Can I have directions to your apartment?” Translation: “You strike me as the slutty type.”
  3. “If I could rewrite the alphabet, I’d put U next to I.” First of all, it should be “me,” not “I.” Although “me” isn’t part of the alphabet. Just as U shouldn’t be part of his life.
  4. “Is your father a terrorist? Because you’re the bomb.” Maybe if you’re a member of the Al Qaeda Singles Club.
  5. “Baby, you must be a broom, ’cause you just swept me off my feet.” Suggested response: “Blow-off, dust bunny!”
  6. “You can be my auto-correct, and I’ll be your mistake.” He doesn’t mean it. He’ll never change.
  7. “The more I drink, the prettier you get.” Translation: “I skipped my AA meeting to come here, and you’re the only other person in the bar.” Romance at its finest.
  8. “Are you a magician? Because whenever I look at you everyone else disappears.” Cheese Award: Runner-up
  9. “Can I tie your shoes? I don’t want you falling for anyone else.” Cheese Award: Bronze
  10. “I’m no organ donor, but I’d be happy to give you my heart.” Cheese Award: Silver
  11. “What time do you have to be back in heaven?” Cheese Award: Gold
  12. “I’m trying so hard not to kiss you right now.” Suggested response: “I’m sorry. Let me help.” Leave.
  13. “My love for you is like diarrhea, I just can’t hold it in.” Highest gross factor ever. Leave before he gets the runs!
  14. “Did we take a class together? No? Because I could’ve sworn you and I had chemistry.” OK, this might actually work if he/she is a science major; try following up with a series of lab experiments.
  15. “If you were a triangle, you’d be acute one.” Might work if they’re a math major.
  16. “Your daddy must be a drug dealer because you’re dope.” Go ahead, insult her family and objectify her.
  17. “Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?” If their tone says, “This is my disarmingly self-mocking way of getting your attention,” they might actually stand a chance.
  18. “Want to get some coffee? ‘Cause I like you a latte.” If hideous groaners are your thing. Or if it’s said with an adorable Italian accent.
  19. “On a scale of 1 to 10, you’re a nine. I’m the one you need.” Do you really want to date a clinical narcissist who thinks you’re “incomplete” without them?
  20. “I may not be what you want, but I am what you need.” File a restraining order. Now.

    Yep, these lines would have anyone in their right mind running to the door. If you like someone, just talk to them, using these pickup lines makes everything worse 😂

    Got a few more:
    “You must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind all evening”
    “Did you fall from Heaven, because they must be missing an angel”
    Very offensive one: so you believe in Jesus? Because if we were to f* it would be immaculate for you.”

    Yep heard those too.

    When I was young and single, a guy came up to me in a bar, dangled his car keys in my face and said, “See that” pointing to the Mercedes emblem on the key, “Wanna go for a ride in my Mercedes?” I said, “No thank you, I think I’ll take a walk in my Levi’s.” Ha-ha! 🙂

    I met my wife through my best friend’s wife. The first time we met, I barely said anything to her. While she was speaking with my friend’s wife, she mentioned that she was considering cutting her hair, which is this magnificent lion’s mane. Before leaving, I took a moment to utter the very first full sentence I had ever uttered to her. “You shouldn’t cut your hair, it’s glorious the way it is.” A little over seven years later, and it’s still glorious. 😁

    I kid you not…
    A guy I knew from AA (I was in Al-Anon) and I were at a summer party with some mutual friends. I didn’t know him well. He was sitting apart from most of the crowd and on my way to get a drink (non-alcoholic, of course), I noticed the red rose tattoo on his arm with — you guessed it — “Rose” written in the banner draping across the flower.

    “Rose, huh?” I asked.
    And in what is the best pickup line/comeback I ever heard in my life, he replied “Yeah, wanna change your name?”

  19. Bad news for anybody hitting on a cute math major: #15 is bogus and will earn a hard slap.  (At least 2 angles in ANY triangle are acute.)  And don’t even think about telling her she squares your circle. 🙂

  20. Well this isn’t a pick up line, but once upon a time, my friend and I (both very nerdy 12 year olds or so) had an assignment to come up with a “punny” dance request for some sort of class activity, and what we came up with was…

    Your ‘ellipse’ are beautiful, and that’s no ‘hyperbola,’ will you ‘transverse’ your time and please go to prom with me?

    We liked math and thought it made sense. Haha. So there’s that lol.

    As much as I would like to believe these are the products of your fertile imagination, I suspect they have ALL been used IRL. Some probably more than once.

    (We’re not going to make it, are we?)
