Internet and Geek Dating Pickup Lines

6 Ways to Initiate Love the Techie Way

We often talk about navigating dating in a digital world, and just when we thought we had it mastered, the witty folks at McSweeney's come up with a list of ineffective (in our techie circle that's debatable) technology pickup lines. Here are our top three come-ons from McSweeney's, plus three crowd-sourced from the GeekSugar Facebook page. If someone approached with you these gems, would you run for the hills or stop to learn more about the Casanova's Klout score?

McSweeney's Ineffective Pickup Lines For the Modern Internet Persona

  • "Do you come here often? I do. I’m the Foursquare mayor, actually, which means I come here more than anyone else. That reminds me, I need to check in . . . "
  • "My Klout score is an 83, which makes me a Thought Leader. There’s a lot of pressure to stay relevant and forward thinking, when you’re that influential. A few sub-par tweets and I could be downgraded to Specialist. I mean, not that there’s anything wrong with being a Specialist . . . you’re not a Specialist, are you?"
  • "My U.S. Alexa ranking is 22K, which is fairly impressive for a blog about soft cheeses. It’s not always smooth sailing, though. It can be difficult coming up with compelling content. Brie sort of loses its luster after a few years, you know?"

Check out the GeekSugar Community's science loving pickup lines after the break.

  • "You know, Einstein was a sexual deviant."
  • "I’m attracted to you so strongly, scientists will have to develop a fifth fundamental force."
  • "Can I buy you a drink while explaining the big bang theory?"

Do you have a pickup line guaranteed to work on a geek? Bonus points for use of puns.
