Valentine's Day 2019: The best movie pick-up lines that could actually work on Tinder and other dating apps
You had me at hello
Social media has obviously played a huge part in opening the floodgates to the pursuit of love and dating. It is now an anywhere, anytime endeavour for anyone with a decent Wi-fi connection, creeps included. As democratic as that sounds, snagging a catch is almost as bonkers as casting a net from a fishing trawler in the open ocean; you're hoping for a prime bluefin tuna but you end up with a ravenous great white that eats everything in your fridge and then leaves you with a dismembered heart. Going along with that fishing analogy, think of the pick-up line as the bait. Lure and reel in your salty bae with our compilation of film's most adorable, sexy and flirtatious moments. Results are contingent on delivery so watch, learn and repeat.
