Walking up and talking to a stranger can be stressful for most people. Honestly, it’s not any easier when you’re attempting to start a conversation on a dating app, either. A “hey” can only get you so far, right? Finding a way to connect is key. A normal pick-up line is cheesy and sometimes downright dirty. Shoot. The best pick up lines can also be kinda cute or even funny. It’s all about how they’re delivered. The idea, though, remains the same: It’s a way to show you’re interested and start talking.
The best way to start a conversation is to try to come at it from a place where you have common ground. Of course, it’s hard to find said common ground at a bar. But if you scope a cutie at Comic-Con? Or see your future bae ordering the Starbucks version of a Butterbeer? Suddenly, you have a jumping-off point. And, of course, if you’re doing this whole “online dating” thing, it actually becomes easier because there’s a map of the person’s interests right in front of you. If, for instance, their profile tells you they’re a Hufflepuff (represent!), you’ll know a Harry Potter pick up line will get your foot in the door.
These Harry Potter pick up lines run the gamut from adorable AF to risky. Know your audience, folks. But for the record, they’d all work on us!
