If you’re looking for a new pick-up line for your dating app bio, Manyspins.com found that old cheesy classics work best. The pickup line that receives the most matches is “I’d say God bless you, but it looks like he already did” maintaining an impressive response rate of 80.4%!

With more people taking their search for love more seriously, using the classic “I think I’ve seen you before. You look a lot like my next boyfriend/girlfriend” appears to work a treat as this pick-up line leads to a respectable 79.4% success rate.

It seems that pick-up lines hinting of a potential future, are a hit when it comes to securing those right swipes, the profiles that used the pickup lines “So, when our friends ask how we met, what are we going to tell them?” and “You don’t know how many swipes it took to finally find you” had a 77% and 70.6% successive response rate respectively.

Which pickup lines are most off-putting?
Despite dating apps often carrying the stigma of a friends with benefits playground, it’s clear to see that pick-up lines hinting towards sex are off-putting. The pickup line most likely to hinder your success is “Let’s have a who’s better in bed contest. I’m hoping to be a sore loser”. With a success rate of just 20.6%, it may be too early to speak about the bedroom.

The pick-up line “If you were a booger, I’d pick you first” is another you may want to avoid. According to Manyspins.com’s findings, it had a beatable success rate of 32.8%. This could be due to the idea of being compared to a booger or the picture it paints of a lack of hygiene, but we’ll leave that up to those using it to find out.

Another popular pick-up line that didn’t bode well with users was “Your parents will love me, but your neighbours won’t”. With a success rate of 34.2% it’s clear to see that once again laying it on thick may not be the way to go.
