10 Dating Apps Pickup Lines, Because Sometimes We All Need A Little Inspiration

Dating can be a scary topic, especially in this day and age. Almost every form of communication is through the internet. Due to COVID, it is nearly impossible to meet someone in person. According to the Pew Research Center, 48% of Americans aged 18-29-years-old have tried online dating at least once before. Everyone, especially young adults, is glued to their phones, and this is where dating apps can come in handy. The only issue is that you can swipe and swipe all day long, but unless one of you sends the other a message, you are never going to get to know them. I know it seems intimidating to make the first move, but trust me when I say that it will all be worth it in the end. Even if you are putting yourself out there for the first time, there is no harm in sending a potential love interest a cute pickup line. Now that you've decided to send that first text, the question arises of what you should send. Below, I listed 10 different pickup lines to hopefully inspire your next message and motivate you to go for the gold.

"Let’s flip a coin. Head’s you’re mine, tails I’m yours."
"When our friends ask us how we met, what are we going to tell them?"
"Damn, you have a dog! Does that mean I’ll never win the 'best ever cuddler' title?"
"My mom told me not to talk to strangers online, but I’ll make an exception for you."
"Maybe you can help me. I forgot the password to my account, and when I hit ‘password hint,’ it keeps telling me ‘(their name)’s phone number.’"
"Do you believe in love at first sight, or should we match again?"
"We matched! Does that mean you’re coming over to my place tonight, or should we meet and establish we aren’t serial killers or living with our parents first?"
"On a scale from 1 to 10, you’re a 9 and I’m the 1 you need."
"Do you mind if I walk you home? My mother always told me to follow my dreams."
"I woke up thinking today was just another boring Monday, and then I saw your photo on my app."

Although some of these pickup lines might be cheesy or corny, they are all equally as effective. No matter what you say to the other person, making the first move already gives them a fantastic first impression of you. Use one of the ideas from above, or come up with your own line. Either way, go out there and be your confident self!

Kayla is a junior at Hofstra University, majoring in journalism and minoring in creative writing and public relations. She has a passion for writing and traveling. A future aspiration of hers consists of becoming a travel writer, or working for a magazine. If you ever need to find her, I recommend checking the mall because she loves spending all her money on clothes that she doesn't need. When not shopping, she can be found watching something on Disney Plus(probably Tangled).
