This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UWB chapter.

I was asked to write a light-hearted article and honestly, what could be more light-hearted than reading a reference of pick-up lines per major.



Computer Science
  • My heart beat goes from O(2^n) to O(logn) on seeing you.

  • // TODO: You

  • I used to think love() was abstract, until you implemented it in MyHeart.

  • Baby, want to traverse my dijkstra branch?

  • Give me your credentials and I’ll show you how privilege escalation REALLY works.

  • I wrote a special version of Stuxnet designed to make you go nuclear.

  • Why don’t we go to my, and I’ll give you sudo access.

  • Roses are #f00, Violets are #00f, show me your bar and I’ll give you my foo

  • I can’t wait to inject your SQL into my application layer.

  • Are you a friend class of mine? Because I’d let you touch my privates

  • Can I dereference my pointer inside your protected area?

  • You are my loop condition. I keep coming back to you.

  • Are you an exception? I bet I can catch you.

  • You must be the one for me, since my selectively permeable membrane let you through.

  • Like metagenomics used on viral genetic material, I feel that sometimes you know the only way to really see me.

  • I’m Homozygous recessive. Wanna do a test cross?

  • If I were a Schwann cell, I’d squeeze around your axon and give you a fast action potential.

  • If I were an enzyme, I’d be DNA helicase so I could unzip your genes.

  • Let me be the myelin to your axon

  • Are you my appendix? I have a gut feeling I should take you out.

  • You must be my coronary artery because you’re wrapped around my heart.

  • If I said you had a monoclonal antibody, would you hold it against me?

  • Emphysema puffs pink, chronic bronchitis makes you blue, but no COPD makes me as breathless as you.

  • Are you a C-reactive protein? Because you have a-cute phase.

  • You’re systemic and I’m pulmonary. Though we may be divided, together we are one.

  • My love for you is so strong it can’t be dialyzed.

  • You’re the sinoatrial node of my heart. Without you, even a defibrillator won’t save me.


Sciences & Engineering
  • You are the sodium to my chloride.

  • I’m so attracted to you that the scientists have to develop a fifth fundamental force.

  • You are the Higgs Boson of my life, because without you my universe won’t ‘matter’.

  • Are you made of copper and tellurium? Because you’re CuTe.

  • Do you have 11 protons? Cause you’re sodium fine.

  • Are you a carbon sample? Because I want to date you.

  • Your name must be Andromeda, ’cause we are destined to collide.

  • Wanna measure the coefficient of static friction between us?

  • Let’s head to my lab so I can prove that Big Bang isn’t just a theory.

  • You are like a high amperage current and I’m a high resistance wire, cause you’ve got me hot.

Mathematics (You should really listen to Klein Four. They have the best Math based songs)
  • I know hundreds of Pi digits, but what I really want to know is the 7 digits of your phone number.

  • I wish I were the first N terms of your convergent Taylor polynomial expansion so I could get close to you.

  • Our love is like the topology on A and B {{},{A,B},{A}}: it’s not discrete, and everything else is trivial (down to homeomorphism).

  • I wanna simplify the square root of u squared so u and i can be together.

  • Is your contravariant hom-functor left exact? Cause I’d like to inject into you

  • I believe you’ll find my Hardy-Littlewood quite maximal.

  • I wish I was a derivative, just so that I could lie tangent to your curves.

  • You have got more curves than a triple integral.

  • My love is like a fractal, it goes on forever.

  • Had you been a triangle, you would be acute one.


  • You light up my world like my primary visual cortex.

  • Hey Girl! Are you an unconditioned stimulus, because you make me display the unconditioned response like pavlovs dog.

  • Baby I love everything about you not just the fragmented parts of your personality or your cognitive functioning.

  • Roses are red, Violets are blue. If you were a null Hypothesis, I would fail to reject you.

  • Sex is on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. Care to help me self-actualize?

  • Let me show you a relaxation technique not used for systematic desensitization.

  • Baby, you activate my HPA axis. You make my dopamine levels go all silly.

  • All three levels of my psyche agree, we need to start dating.

  • You’re the Youngian archetype for the perfect woman.

  • Baby, all i see in my Rorschach Tests is me and you!

  • Why don’t I show you my giant inkblot so you can tell me how you feel about it, hmm?

  • What Freudians repress, let’s express!

Based on the majors done, you can possibly see which majors I am biased towards. Yes, I am a computer science and business double major with some sort of special interest in medical sciences. I did not do a list of pick up lines for business or LEPP students because they are just naturally smooth. They do not need a guide like this. (or maybe I was just being too lazy. Will leave it to you to decide between the two). Feminist as I am, I could not help but give bonus credit to http://www.shedoesthecity.com/20-feminist-pick-up-lines. They have one of the most lit and honestly pick up lines that would actually work on me.
