Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, is a day dedicated to love and relationships. Some people find that pick-up lines are a good way to strike up a conversation which might eventually result in a relationship. Whether someone is in a relationship or is single, he or she has probably witnessed a pickup line gone wrong, so it’s important to know which ones work and which ones are futile.
Senior Tiffany Hayward claimed that saying “I want to live in your socks so I can be with you every step of the way,” is a surefire sign to get someone’s attention. Senior Thomas Moore said that asking “Are you related to Yoda? Because yodalicious,” is the best line to use when striking up a conversation.
“The most important part of a pickup line,” senior Sofia Andersson said, “is to commit to the line and be confident. It will not work, but it’ll make the girl laugh, so you’re set.”
Senior Maria Staubach agreed with Andersson’s advice and added to “not be too cheesy, but make sure to have fun with it and not be too serious.” Hayward’s advice differed, saying to “never use pickup lines on me. They make me feel uncomfortable.”
Figuring out which chat-up lines to never use is almost as vital as deciding which ones to use. Moore said the worst line he’s heard used is “Call me Shrek because I’m head ogre heels for you.” Senior Haley Baker said the worst one she’s heard is “Do you live in a cornfield? Because I’m stalking you.”
Whether or not pick-up lines are used, art teacher Willy Corbett said to “be confident in yourself…. Look beyond the physical image of the person and focus on the inside.”
