Whether you matched on a dating app or met IRL, something truly magical happens when you realize you share the same geeky interests as a someone new. One second you’re making small talk about work, and the next, you’re passionately discussing black holes or Harry Potter or the Roman Empire with the person who might! just! be! the love of your life. Blame it on all the romantic comedies we grew up with, but personally, I think there’s *nothing* better than a delightfully nerdy pickup line.
I know, I know—pickup lines often get a bad rap because they can, admittedly, be a little cringe. But! When delivered correctly (and to the right person), a good pickup line can turn a lame chat into a fun and flirty conversation. Think about it: What’s more memorable? Someone asking what you do for work (*yawn*) or asking for your ~sine~/where your wings are/if you play Quidditch (you know…cause you’re a Keeper)?
Naturally, there are tons of routes you can take when it comes to nerdy talk, from ultra-cheesy pickup lines to totally raunchy conversation starters. It’ll all depend on your relationship + whether you’re striking up a convo on a dating app or have been together forever and simply wanna get your flirt on. (And, obvi, you’ll wanna save the supes naughty ones for someone who consents to turning the heat up to 212 degrees.) Regardless of the type of relationship you currently have, my personal favorite pickup lines are ones that show you care about someone’s niche obsessions. IMO, it’s these shared interests that usually lay the foundation for long and lasting relationships. You know what they say: Initial chemistry is fleeting, but being able to joke about chemistry when you’re both in the medical field? That’s the stuff of pi.
So, whether you’re trying to woo a mathlete, dazzle your bio T.A., or flirt with the Harry to your Ginny, these 50 nerdy pickup lines will charm the object of your affections faster than you can say “amortentia.”
