Can I have your number?

So this week at the Rival is SEX WEEK. But everyone knows that before sex comes K-I-S-S-I-N-G, and even before that is the oh-so important pick-up line. So I’ve compiled a list of the best pick-up lines sure to go over well for all of you looking to make the best of your #SpringBreak2k16.

First off, everyone needs to forget the classics:

“Are you from Tennessee? Cause you’re the only ten I see…”

“Did it hurt when you fell from Heaven?”

“Do you know how much a polar bear weighs? Enough to break the ice.”


“If I could rearrange the alphabet I’d put u and i together”

Give me a break, these are so old and overused. I’m sorry, but no one is impressed by your ability to repeat these worn-out one-liners that you probably heard on TV when you were eleven. Here are some new lines to freshen up your game.

For those with a self-deprecating humor:

“Excuse me I think you dropped something.” “It was your standards…” “Hi my name is ___________.”

For the daring:

“On a scale from 1 to human centipede, how close am I to ass tonight?”

“If a fat man puts you in a bag tonight, don’t worry. I told Santa I want you for Christmas.” (Note: Probably works better around the Holidays)


“Do you like bacon? Wanna strip?”

For the super charming:

Get a sugar packet, place on ground next to desired individual, then pick it up and say, “Excuse me but I think you dropped your name tag.”


“Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?”

“I’ll be Burger King and you be McDonald’s. I’ll have it my way and you’ll be loving it.”

For the nerds:

“Are you made of copper and tellurium? Because damn you’re CuTe.”

“Good thing I have my library card because I’m checking you out.”
