There’s this hot girl or guy you know whom you’ve been eyeing for a while now. You’re thinking of letting them know that you’re into them. So, one day you finally muster the courage to say, “Hey, can we talk for a minute?” Now you have their full attention. Don’t let yourself down by using no-no pick-up lines like these corkers.Pick-up line #1: “Hey, girl. Are you German? ‘Cause I wanna be Ger-man!”
No, just no! With a country as beautiful and culturally diverse as South Africa, you can’t assume people’s attitudes to any nationality. Please – don’t try this one at school (or anywhere else for that matter!)Pick-up line #2: Is your name Wi-Fi? Because I feel we have a connection.”
Hmmm, should you run for the door now or 5 minutes ago? May we add that not all Wi-Fi connections are great? So, if you really want a connection and would prefer NOT to get rejected by your crush, read 4 ways to make your move and try again.Pick-up line #3: “Are you a campfire? Cause you’re real hot.”
We must admit, hot is hot – but it’s still not a good enough reason for you to use it as a pick-up line. Find another way to set up a date for the BIG date.Pick-up line #4: “Do you have a Band-Aid? ‘Cause I scraped my knee falling for you.”
Who carries Band-Aids anyway? If you’re thinking of using this pick-up line, abort mission now! You are not guaranteed a cell number with this one.

If you really want to let them know someone that you’re interested, compliment them. Tell them how great they’re looking or how amazing their presentation in class was. Ask them out for coffee or a movie or offer to walk them home. They’ll appreciate the gesture and definitely start noticing the signals you’re sending out.

If you manage to bag that date, congratulations! But first find out about the best way to leave your mark after a first date. Hint: By ensuring you have fresh breath you’re bound to keep them interested!
