How to Pick Up Hotties Without Saying a Word

Listen, boys. Pick-up artistry is a tricky craft, and you know it. There’s a fine line between lame and downright inappropriate attempts, but when done right, the pick-up line can really deliver. So the DIYers of Bro + Co are going to help you out with some quality zingers and a fresh way to deliver them — printables! Instead of catcalling (ew, catcalling) or the classic, “do you, um come here often?” how about wearing these pick-up lines on your bro tank, man tote or tee? Simply download our five punny pick-up line printables, iron ’em onto your favorite garments and be on your charming way!


TBH, it was hard to narrow down to just five pick-up lines. So we’ll generously share our five runner-ups — just so, you know, you have more material to work with ;)

  1. “Are you a magician? Because abra-ca-DAYUMN!”
  2. “Are you friends with Harry Potter? Because you’re a-Gryffindor-able.”
  3. “You must be the square root of two, ’cause I feel irrational around you.”
  4. “If I were to ask you out on a date, would your answer be the same as the answer to this question?”
  5. “Are you my appendix? Because I have a funny feeling in my stomach that makes me feel like I should take you out.”

Also note this v. important advice from a dating veteran. Keep these in mind when picking us up:

  1. Avoid any lines having to do with your pants, please.
  2. If it can be said in a Disney Channel Original Movie, it’ll probably fly without offending us.
  3. Ask yourself: Are you comfortable saying this line with your mother in the room? Yeah.

Alright, let’s get to it!

Not ready for the bro tank or boxers? Print your line on a business card, write your number on the back and slip it to that smokehouse sitting at the bar. That was SO SMOOTH. You’re welcome.
