Everyone has a type.
Some people like musicians. Some people like comedians.( Full disclosure: I like musicians and comedians .) Some people like bad boys, and others are sapiosexuals who are into guys they’ll most likely find hanging out at the library.
And then, there are the people who are into athletes. Can you blame ’em, though? Athletes are strong. They have discipline. They’re good teammates, and they know how to compromise. Plus, they appear good when they’re sweaty, and the competitive edge they have can be fairly hot.
So if athletes are your thing, and you come across one on a dating app, you’re going to want to get their attention. But how?
2. If I Were A SoccerBall, Would You Kick It With Me?
You are obviously a football ball, but it’s always good to start a Tinder message with a question, because it warrants a reply back. It’salso a illuminate, casual, and fun route of asking for plans.
Just make sure this soccer player you match with isn’t playing the field hard. No one likes a womanizer.
2. So, You’re A Baseball Player? How Bout You Try To Hit On Me With All That Batting Practice?
This pick up line starts off the conversation, but then, it instantly puts the ball in their court( haha, get onto ?) by leaving it up to them to start reaching on you and, hopefully, giveyou a compliment.
It’s also good if you don’t know a great deal about athletics, because the conversation doesn’t have to stay on the topic of baseball.
3. This Match Is A Home Run, Huh?
Again, this is solidfor you if you don’t know a great deal about sports, but you still want to get that athlete’s attention.
Yes, it’s super cheesy and dorky, but those kinds of openers can actually be super endearing amongst a slew of hellos and inauthentic, manufactured topics like pizza or nachos ?!
Have some fun with it, and try come across cute.
4. What’s Your Favorite Team?
This one’s obvious, right?
But proceed with caution if you don’t know anything about athletics, the conversation can’t actually go anywhere from here. That is, unless your response is Oh cool, well, I don’t genuinely know anything about athletics, so I don’t know why I asked you that.
Honestly, though, thatcan also be a good dialogue starter, because then he can ask you what into, which he should be doing anyway.
Remember, dating isn’t all about him, right?
5. Who Is Your Favorite[ Insert Sport] Player?
This pick up line is good if you know about the sport your match played and can also follow up with some banter about professional athletes who play in the same field.
If a guy knows youcan shoot the sh* t about his favorite athletic, he’ll definitely to continue efforts to lock in a date with you.
6. Can I Get Your Jersey? Sorry, I Entail Your Name And Number?
Thank you to the great people at a Jokes4Us. comfor this pickup line .
It is utterly sooooo cheesy that it’s bound to get your match’s attention and warrant some sort of flirty response.
I mean, sometimes jokes are so bad, they’re good.
7. You Played[ Insert Sport ]? Cool! What Position Were You?
After you send this one, you can immediately follow it up with Any postures you’d like to get me in? if you want to get flirty.
Sometimes, it’s best to open withsomething funny. But other hours, you can open up the conversation more earnestly and, if you know a thing or two about sports, actually start an authentic dialogue about your favorite squads or players.
