You've probably been there.
You're on Tinder and you suddenly receive a notification saying you've matched with someone. YES! And then you think, "That's so lame!" because they open up with some pick up line that's totally vulgar — or worse — WAY too cheesy.
You can't say 'block, next!' fast enough. (Who does that frat boy think he is, amirite?!)
What if you're at a bar and you want to seem funny? Or you're talking to someone new and want to mess around — no strings attached?
Let's reverse the roles; we're in the 21st century and apps like Bumble encourage women to take a stand and make the first move — by MAKING you make the first move, unless you want the match to expire.
You don't want to come off as the creep that these Tinder guys make themselves out to be, so don't make that mistake.
If you know someone well enough to know their birthday (you you're really good at Facebook stalking), find out what line they're most likely to find amusing.
So now, you're funny AND you're using a line that might as well have been pulled out of their own 'handbook'. You're the full package, boo!
Your chemistry's great — and now so is the compatibility factor between you and this new hottie.
Now, don't tell him you know his zodiac sign though. You don't want to spook him out. So learn to master the art of subtlety before you lay it all out on the table with these sometimes-ballsy, sometimes-vanilla pick up lines for him that are sure to hit their target.
And remember to flash those pearly whites, if done in person, for added irresistibility. GOOD LUCK!
