In an effort to avoid a generic “hey,” plenty of online daters turned to clever pick-up lines as an opening message to their potential matches. The thinking seems to go that if a simple message isn’t going to get them a date, then a cheesy joke or well-crafted pun will do the trick. The issue is that most pick-up lines are just dressed-up dad jokes — some are hilarious, some are cringeworthy, and most are both.
We’ve scoured Reddit boards like r/OkCupid and r/BestTinderPickupLines to find the punniest, funniest and most cringe-worthy pick-up lines people have heard (or used) on online dating apps. Use them at your own risk.
