In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s a great list of lines to try out on other people. I would not recommend quoting poetry to someone you’re trying to pick up though. People see through that stuff these days. Plus, your date might actually wonder where you got that poetry from and pull out his or her iPhone. Nothing kills the romance like looking up poetry on Wikipedia.
Better to stick with a one-liner. My favorite on this list is number 10: “Will you pretend you’re my boyfriend?”
