What do we say to the god of rejection? Not today. Game of Thrones pick-up lines have the perfect blend of nerdiness and dark humor to catch the attention of your favorite wildling or noble. But George R.R. Martin pacing is discouraged here – no one wants to wait 6 years for a second date.
That said, no matter how well these lines work, we have to strongly advise against having a Game of Thrones wedding. Seems like asking for some seriously bad luck.
Game of Thrones Pick-Up Lines
1. “You’re like a brother/sister to me… in the Lannister sense.”
If the first half of this line inspires a look of disappointment, you know the second half is about to land.
2. “I’ve fallen harder for you than Bran Stark.”
Show off your status as a GoT original with this reference going back to season 1, episode 1. No one needs to know that you couldn’t tell Robb, Jon, or Theon apart until the middle of season 2.
3. “Is your mom Melisandre? Because you’re smoking.”
Even if they don’t remember the weird shadow-smoke-baby-assassin from season 2, the Red Witch is so closely associated with fire that they’ll catch your drift. But honestly, no one is going to forget the shadow-smoke-baby-assassin.
4. “What Arya doing later? I’m Sansa-ing a connection here.”
Earn some cool points for the Game of Thrones references, lose some for the terrible puns. It’s bittersweet, just like the series.
5. “I want you more than Stoneheart wants revenge.”
If your sweetheart is a “the book is always better” type, this book-only reference makes for the perfect line. If you can commit to a couple 700 page fantasy tomes, you can probably commit to a book nerd too.
6. “Are you Lyanna Stark? Because I’d wage a war just to earn your hand.”
The great thing about this line is that it works perfectly regardless of where the listener stands on the Robert vs. Rhaegar thing.
7. “You make me wanna bend the knee.”
You will make your sweetheart feel like Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Protector of the Realm, Queen of Meereen, Yunkai and Astapor, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Mother of Dragons, The Unburnt, Breaker of Chains with this one.
8. “On a scale of 1 to the Wildlings, how free are you tonight?”
For the wildlings, freedom rules above all else. Hopefully the cutie you’re eyeing is equally free (and maybe equally wild).
9. “You know nothing…”
Sure, it doesn’t sound like a pick-up line, but you can’t deny the results. It only took a couple “You know nothing”s to make one of the best romances in the show, and the chemistry was so strong the actors even got together in real life.
10. “Winter is coming, but I can keep you warm through the Long Night.”
Winter is difficult enough when it lasts 3 months, and the winter promised by the White Walkers is never-ending. Super inconvenient, but hey, at least it’s cuddle weather for the rest of time.
11. “I’m cooler than the Wall in the north, you’re hotter than wildfire. Wanna make A Song of Ice and Fire?”
There’s nothing like a good title drop to get an audience hyped, and we’re pretty sure that effect crosses over into pick-up lines as well. Deliver this with confidence and you’re sure to reap rewards.
If you’re truly at a loss for words you can always send that special someone this really compelling and not at all upsetting gif. Or, even better, recreate it for a stranger across the room.
