Valentine’s Day isn’t too far off now, and scientists have uncovered the best pick-up lines you can use on Tinder.
U.S. researchers tested out various pick-up lines on 237 young, heterosexual adults and found that it was best to use humor for one’s opening line as opposed to a compliment. In fact, they found men who used funny introductions were seen as more attractive, and women also rated them as more intelligent, kind, and trustworthy.
By contrast, men overwhelmingly choose prospective dates based on how attractive they found the woman’s profile. The top five pick-up lines, as rated by women, were: 1) “Do you have any raisins? No? Well, how about a date?” 2) “Are you from Tennessee? Because you’re the only 10 I see!” 3) “I’m not really this tall, I’m sitting on my wallet.” 4) “Is your name wi-fi? Because I think we’ve got a connection,” and 5) “Are you a tower? Because Eiffel for you.”
