The Best Online Dating Pick Up Lines

Editor Review

I recently sent out an email to all my male friends, acquaintances and colleagues who I know are involved in online dating and asked them one simple question.

“What is the best pick up line when you’re online dating?”

The responses that I got varied drastically and I was actually very surprised by some of the answers and I was even more surprised at how clueless some of these guys were, judging by their responses!

Take a look at some of these shocking pick up lines:

“Hey you’re really pretty. What’s up?”

“You’re the most beautiful girl on this site. Want to chat?”

“Did it hurt when you fell into my inbox?”

“At first I thought your profile picture was a stock photo! You’re that gorgeous!”

CAN YOU SAY CHEESE?!!? CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE!!

I was almost disgusted when reading these pick up lines! Disgusted that I knew guys who actually thought that these lines would work.

When I first decided to write a blog on online dating pick up lines I was just going to compile a list of the best ones, which would come from the responses to the emails I sent out. But once I got the responses I decided to take a different approach and instead write this blog to help the pathetic men out there who think that lines like this will work! (No offense guys!)

First off guys, pick up lines like the ones above are cheesy. Do not use these or anything similar. Lines like this will not ensure a response from her.

The best way to pick up a girl is to use an original “pick up line”. Make sure you read her profile before sending her a line because you want to put something personal in it. If she says in her profile that she loves sailing in the summer, send her a pick up line that says, “I also love sailing, have you been to the harbor front?” This way it will show her you are interested in what she’s interested in, and that you actually spent the time to read her profile and didn’t just see her picture and think “oh, she’s hot!”

Another great way is to use something clever and confident. Women love a man who is confident and doesn’t take things to seriously. Try something along the lines of “Oops, I accidentally deleted the email you send me. Can you resend it please?” If she has a good sense of humor she will think it’s funny. If she reply’s saying “I didn’t send you an email”, this gives you the “in” you were looking for in the first place!

Another sure way is to just be straight up and introduce yourself; no funny business. “Hi, I’m Paul, I browsed you profile and you look really cool! How are things going?”. I know this doesn’t really seem like a pick up line, per se, but this line will get you a lot further than any of the ones mentioned above.

By now you probably get the gist of it. Don’t use a cheesy pick up line and you will be good to go. Try something, funny, original, honest and witty and it will definitely work ;)

What are some cheesy pick up lines you’ve been sent on an online dating site?

    OMG! The “You’re really pretty. What’s up?” is practically viral! WTH? Do they have meetings and share this crap? If only they did! Then they would realize how l-a-m-e these lines are and their low success rates. Fab post, Cindi!

    Some guy recently sent me a message that said: “Can you please add me to your favorites?”

    FAIL!

    I didn’t know if he was expressing his interest in me or marketing his profile at me.

    Well ladies, if you think you can do better, then start making the first move yourselves – You will soon find out how tiring it is trying to send out messages which are perfectly tailored to each individual, which stands out from the crowd and is both funny and interesting to the recipient, only to never receive an answer because the person is overwhelmed by others who are doing exactly the same thing – oh wait! Since men make 90% of all first moves on dating sites and the women who make up the 10% remainder only sends messages to the hottest and richest blokes on the site, most blokes rarely get a first approach in the first place, so of course your message will stand out! Dating should be an equal opportunities event, It would be nice if women were more active on the sites!
