Funny Instagram pick up lines for specific situations

  • [If she’s into books] From one bookworm to another, don’t you just hate that you can’t stack e-books on your shelf like a bunch of trophies?
  • [If she has a dog] Fair warning. Animals love me and I take no responsibility if your doggo chooses to leave you for me.
  • [If she’s sipping wine in her story] Can’t believe you didn’t finish your wine, [her name]. There are sober children in Africa, you know.
  • [If she’s eating pizza in her story] Seeing the long melted cheese tendrils of your pizza slice is one of the most erotic things I’ve ever seen on Instagram.
  • [If she’s into politics] I like politics too. I read like 3 memes, so I’m pretty much an expert now.
  • [If she’s a nerd and told you to add her on Insta] Your party, weary from your travels, gather at the tavern in the hamlet of Oakwood. A friendly barkeep serves drinks to the townsfolk as a traveling bard takes the stage. Go ahead and introduce your character.

  • [If she’s into yoga and cats] Good moves at yoga this week. I actually recorded your moves.

  • All your pics look like you’re the female James Bond. You still looking for a Bond girl?
  • [If she’s been liking your photos] This is so us. You snooping through my Insta and waiting for me to reach out. Me figuring out what to DM you. And my dumb ass brain going: just say hi, dummy.
  • [When she has a cat] You. Me. Some catnip. And all the toys and scritches you want. 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? Because without you I’m just ://.
  • I first wanted to go for something cheesy. But then I realized you probably have dozens of dudes from India sending you poems and love letters. So lemme keep it chill: what’s up?

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.

The Instagram pick up line she can’t resist

Here comes an incredibly powerful technique for getting reactions on Instagram.

Use a little mystery.

99,5775473% of guys out there will slide into her DMs saying something like:

Hey beautiful

Not only is that incredibly generic and boring. She’ll also be able to see the message in her inbox without needing to open the conversation!

So she’ll just ignore it.

But… If you slide into her DMs with a unique message. All she’ll see in her inbox is that she got a message from a stranger that starts with, for example:

“Seeing the long melted cheese…”

She has no clue where that’s leading. So what happens?

She’ll open the message and read everything! Bringing you one step closer to her reply.

So if you want her to reply, be sure to start your message in a unique way.

But the mating dance doesn’t end there.

Once she replies to your icebreaker, you have to hold her attention and make her excited to meet you.
