The 30 best literary chat-up lines

Get your coat, love, you’ve pulled. Do you believe in love at first sight… or do I have to walk by again? Are you free tonight, or will it cost me? I may not be the best looking guy here, but I’m the only one talking to you. The fact that I’m missing my teeth just means that there’s more room for your tongue. Hi, my name is Pogo, want to jump on my stick?

Contrary to the these little charmers, romance isn’t dead, it just got a bad scriptwriter. If you want to impress the ladies with a few choice lines, best to resort to the classics. In this case, literature.

Learn these refined beauties and you’ll have the object of your desire making you breakfast in bed before you can say your place or mine?
