Are you a swinging single on the prowl in Singapore? Hoping to meet your soul mate or someone to have fun with?
Well, you are in the right place. According to Singstat, Singapore is a potent hunting ground for single young working adults aged between 25-29 years of age.

We are sure that there have been instances where you spied someone who has piqued your interest. But, what should you say to get the other party’s attention? The pick-up line is certainly not a topic that was covered in our secondary school biology lessons. And unless you are Barney from the sitcom, How I Met Your Mother, there is no play book to fall back on.

Therefore, we decided to suit up and be your wingman for this once.
Here is our top five pick-up lines that we think will get you started!
1. Be unique and different, just say yes!
We all want to feel special and you cannot have complimented the apple of your eye more succinctly with this killer line.
2. When God made you, he was showing off.
This is bordering on cheesy, but it adds gravitas if you are using this in a religious environment. Plus, you have a great get together story to tell people. You get to say God was the basis of the relationship. Beat that!
3. My buddies bet me that I wouldn't be able to start a conversation with the most beautiful girl in the bar. Wanna buy some drinks with their money?
A variation on the classic pick-up line, “Can I buy you a drink?”. This is a witty yet subtle way of worming your way into the other’s good books.
4. I was so enchanted by your beauty that I ran into that wall over there. So I am going to need your name and number for insurance purposes.
A good dose of pragmatic humour goes a long way in an Asian context.
5. If I were a transplant surgeon, I'd give you my heart.
We admit that this is a tough one to pull off. But remember, it is also the little details that can make it a success. The right eye contact, tone of voice and body language and you two will be booking a follow up check-up for sure.
