Notre Dame pick-up lines

Scene Staff | Wednesday, April 17, 2013


Listen up, ladies and gentlemen: the Scene staff senses love in the air, and we took the initiative to help out all you young lovers with those budding relationships.  Have a crush on a girl or a guy in your 9:30 a.m. Econ class?  Need a date for an upcoming formal or SYR? See the same hottie over and over again at dorm parties?  Find yourself staring at the stellar dancer in the cage at Feve every Thursday?  Well, memorize this list, build up your courage and walk confidently up to your crush. 

These 20 ND pick-up lines have all been used on or by students here and were memorable for one reason or another. They are sure to get the attention of that girl or guy you have been eyeing and Facebook stalking for the past month, so go for it! What do you have to lose?
