Maybe you can find one at your Valentine’s themed trivia night–assuming it wasn’t a duo-date-night thing. Anyway we’re pretty sure pick-up lines don’t work too well on average, but who knows? New year, new you. Here are some Valentine’s Day pick-up lines. Use responsibly, don’t creep anyone out.

If you’re going on a Zoom date, check out some Zoom pick-up lines here.

16 Valentine’s Day Pick-Up Lines to Avoid 2021 To

1. If you were a potato you’d be a sweet potato.

If you have the financial freedom and time to date, 2020 definitely turned us into potatoes. 

2. Roses are red, violets are blue, I can’t rhyme but can I date you?

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,


3. You must be Netflix; I could chill with you for hours.

We already finished Netflix though. Might need a new streaming service. 

4. My physician says I need more Vitamin U.

If someone uses this line try hitting them with some Vitamin K. Or just K.

5. Are you a bank loan? You have my interest.

No seriously help we’re all in crippling debt.

6. You don’t need keys to drive me crazy.

Play this one by ear because if they’re actually crazy you will want to drive away.

7. They can’t fit my feelings on a conversation heart.

We prefer “weird sugar candies that taste like chalk.”

8. Sorry I didn’t get you chocolates but if you want something sweet I’m right here.

Beware, you might get dumped if your significant other cares about Valentine’s Day and you didn’t get anything.

9. Cupid called, wants my heart back.

Kind of needed to, you know, pump blood around. Appreciate the sentiment but we will actually die. 

10. Do you have a GPS? I’m lost in your eyes.

Just hope to god they’re not using Apple Maps.

11. Your hand looks heavy, do you want me to hold it for you?

Hand holding? You absolute scoundrel, you.

12. Did it hurt? When you got shot by cupid’s arrow.


13. Do you want to eat a box of chocolates with me?

No seriously we bought too many.

We prefer a bowl of shavings anyway.

14. Roses are #ff0000, violets are #0000ff, I learned color hex codes for you.

Commit to the bit. 

15. First you swept litter from the street. Then you swept me off my feet.

Environmentally conscious? Doesn’t litter? What else could you want in a partner?

16. Will you be my Valentine?

When every other line is trying too hard, sometimes you just have to ask. 

More pick-up lines here, in case you don’t want to stick with the theme.
