Valentine's Pickup Lines 

OK here we are in the 2000's, the age of political awareness and sexual equality. Rarely do people hang out in singles bars anymore, but pickup lines, like sideburns and polyester pants, never seem to go away.

Here are 30 examples of good (debatable) and bad pickup lines. We're not sure which is which - we'll let you decide. The NZCity Valentine's team would like to make a disclaimer should any of you decide to inflict one of these lines on somebody. It is probable you may get laughed at and/or slapped (in the least!) You might even have to run if you use a line on someone who has a huge partner you didn't see standing behind you. But, if one of these works, and actually gets you somewhere, "wow!?" - all credit to you. For those of you who have to endure pickup lines, try these famous pickup-comebacks. Happy Valentines everybody! XXX.

Legend has it that some of these lines work better after a couple of drinks...

  • "Nice shoes, want to go back to my pad?"

  • Look at the tag on their shirt and then say: "Oh, I thought you were made in Heaven!"

  • "If I could re-arrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together."

  • "Hi, I'm suffering from amnesia… do I come here often?"

  • "Do you have a twin sister? Cause I’ve seen you here before."

  • "If I followed you home, would you keep me?"

  • "Were your parents thieves?" "No, why?""Because they must have stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes."

  • "Did it hurt?" "Did what hurt?" "When you fell down out of heaven."

  • "Is it hot in here or is it just you?"

  • "Hello." Alternately try "Hi."

  • "Hi, do you like this band? I SAID, HI DO YOU LIKE THIS BAND?!?"

  • "Didn’t I go to school with you?"

  • "Haven’t you been in Cleo?"

  • "Hi, can I buy you a drink?"

  • "You must be my guardian angel?"

  • "Hey, you have something on your lips." "What?" "Me!"

  • "Your hair looks nice. What kind of shampoo do you use?"

  • "I couldn't help but notice you undressing me from across the room."

  • "Don’t I know you from a past life?"

  • "If I told you that you have a great body would you hold it against me?"

  • "Excuse me, do you have a mobile phone I can use? I told my Mum I’d call her when I fell in love!!!"

  • "Hey, why don't we go behind a rock and get a little bolder..."

  • "My name isn't Fred Flintstone, but I can sure make your Bedrock" (oh that’s a terrible line – I can’t believe I put it in!)

  • "No wonder the sky is grey today, all the blue is in your eyes."

  • "I lost my phone number, could I borrow yours?"

  • "Do your feet hurt?" "No, why?""Cause you've been running through my mind all night."

  • "Is your father a terrorist? Because you're da bomb!"

  • "The only reason I'd kick you out of my bed would be to make love to you on the floor."

  • "What’s your star sign?"

  • "I’ve stopped lighting fires now…"
