13 Online Daters Share The Weirdest Pick-Up Lines They’ve Ever Heard

Illustrated by Norah Stone.
In an effort to avoid the generic trap of saying, "hey," plenty of online daters have turned to clever pickup lines as an opening message to their matches. The thinking seems to go that if a simple message isn't going to get them a date or a hookup, then a well-crafted pun or cheesy joke will do the trick. The problem is that most pickup lines are just dressed-up dad jokes — some are hilarious, some are cringeworthy, and most are both.
So we've scoured Reddit boards such as r/BestTinderPickupLines and r/OkCupid to find the funniest, punniest, and most cringeworthy lines people have heard (or used) on online dating apps. Use them at your own risk.
