Obviously only send the last part.


Hey excuse me, you dropped this


Your standards, hi I’m (your name)

Only use these lines if you have a strong Instagram profile.

If you don’t seem confident, the self deprecation will make you look insecure.

On the topic of funny, ever find yourself looking for a funny reply but don’t know what to say? Check out this article:

Good moves at yoga class this week

If she likes the sitcom Friends:

I think you’re the Rachel to my Ross

I want to start a passionate relationship with you, grow jealous of your co-worker, start a huge fight, and go too far with another girl, just so I can say




haha ooh shit! Not sure if you remember..

Remember what?

The Cookie Monster’s real name is Sid. #neverforget


If her latest story or upload tells you she’s nearby.

Holy F, you’re close

I’m going to hang out the window and mimic the mating call of a pregnant golden eagle

Did you hear me?


Send her an appropriate GIF.


Don’t mind me. Just sliding into your DMs


My dog started humping my phone after I checked out your Insta

Bad dog! Stop it! My phone is not consenting to this!

Let’s skip the small talk and fast forward to a never-ending series of awkward moments


Oops. I seem to have crashed into your dms 🌚

How to make sure she replies to your Instagram pick up line

Most dudes use Instagram to get girls in the worst way possible.

They see a cute girl and instantly slide into her DMs.

What’s wrong with that?

If she’s attractive, she probably has hundreds of random guys fighting for attention in her inbox.

Guess who you are when you send her a DM as a stranger?

One of those random and creepy duderinos.

And they get no love.

So how do you get her to reply to your Instagram messages?

By following these 5 steps:

  1. Have a decent profile
  2. Follow her
  3. Engage her profile via likes and/or comments
  4. Wait for the perfect moment
  5. Slide into her DMs using one of these pick up lines

This article only talks about step 5.

Want help with the other 4 steps? Check out this article of mine:

Chill and cocky Instagram pick up lines


No clue if we’d get along, but I just had to slide because (something that you loved about her profile)

What are things that you can love about her profile?

Think: band, a book, a videogame or a hobby.


Random dude #3009 sliding into your DMs today. How’s your week going on a scale from sipping cold coffee while staring out the window to cocaine fueled orgy?


You liked and commented on my pics

I guess what I’m trying to say is, let’s get married


If she left you a comment.

You commented on my pic a week ago

Slide into my DMs already, (name!)


If she lives a few miles away from you.

It’s good that we live so far apart

You and I would be trouble


If she’s liked your Insta photos.

So Mrs. Hard-to-get, are you actually going to say hi or can I just expect you to like my Insta pics for the rest of my life? 😉


I bet you can’t find another guy in your inbox as charming and awkward as me

That’s right. I’m like Michael Cera when he was still on TV


You seem like the type of person who’s the right combination of cocky and humble

I like that

I was so stoked to slide into your DMs, but then my horoscope said that a girl (dressed like her) would get me into trouble


Thanks (name)

So sweet that you got me flowers. You can bring them by later ❤️

You can replace the ‘flowers’ with anything gift-like that she’s holding on her Instagram photo.

Concert tickets. Champagne bottle. A cute pup.

Take your pick.


All your pics look like you’re the female James Bond

Just make sure to tell your cat momma you’re going to be away for a few hours


If she seems a little nerdy

Are you https?

I first wanted to go for something cheesy

So (name). When you’re going to get my name tattooed on your body, will you get it on your left or right butt cheek?
