Hold Out Your Hand and Ask This Question
“Hey I’m going for a walk. Will you hold this for me?”
This one is sure to get at least an eye roll. Let’s call it a start!

“Have You Got Any Raisins?”
When they answer “no,” say, “Oh, then how about a date instead?”
“Are You Cake?”
“Because I want a piece of that.”
“Excuse Me, You Dropped Something.”
When she looks down and asks what she dropped, tell her, “Your standards.”
Self-deprecating wit is our favorite kind.
“Are You a Bank Loan?”
“Well, you’ve certainly got my interest!”
Take Her Picture on Your Phone
Then tell her, “I just want to text my mom and show her what my next girlfriend looks like.”

Fair warning, this one will either get you a date or slapped across the face.
“On a Scale of One to America…”
“How free are you tonight?”
“I’m Not Actually This Tall”
“I’m just sitting on my wallet.”
“My Buddies and I Made a Bet…”
“They said that I wouldn’t be able to start a conversation with the most beautiful person in the club. So what should we do with their money?”
“Don’t Tell Me if You Want Me to Take You Out to Dinner”
“Just smile for yes, or do a back flip, somersault, counter-spin gymnastics combination for no.”
“Hey, My Name’s Microsoft”
“Can I crash at your place tonight?”
“Your Middle Name Must Be Gillette”
“Because you’re the best a man can get.”
This pick up line also has a catchy jingle so she won’t be able to get you out of her head. Smart.

“But maybe I can get on your ‘to do’ list tomorrow?”

“I don’t know you, but something inside me is saying I should take you out.”
I thought they were going to say “largely useless and can cause sudden pain when you least expect it,” but this is better.
“I Want to Tell You Your Fortune”
Take her hand and write your phone number on it. “There’s your future.”
“Are There Any Cops Around?”
“Because I’m about to steal your heart.”
