A Cursed Long List of Bad Pickup Lines to Make You Cringe (& Laugh)

·2 min read

We’re not sure where bad pickup lines started, but somehow they’ve become almost an art form. (Or at least the bad ones.) Whether you’re trolling dating apps or sending something cheese-tastic and groan-inducing to your SO (they’re stuck with you! They have to love you anyway!), finding a few lines that strike the balance between “woof” and “LOL” is a great way to break the ice or re-inject some fun into your conversations. After all, isolation and quarantine time means you need to have a powerful sexy texting game.

How do you craft something full of puns, important information about your cat and nonspecific compliments that’s cheesy enough that the other person might assume there’s some depth underneath your one-liner? We’re not sure, but people manage to do it. What we really want to know is: Have any of these ever worked? Was it only ironically?

These cheesy pickup lines are so bad, they’re almost good.
