We tested Rutgers’ best pick-up lines

‘You have a face that makes me want to cry’

If needy 1am posts on Yik Yak didn’t make it clear enough, Rutgers obviously needs help finding Netflix n’ chill buddies. Lucky for you, The Tab has personally tested and rated pick-up lines provided by some of Rutgers’ very own pupils.

We asked the students below to suggest their best pickup lines. Then, I used those same pickup lines on other students. Each line was used on five different people and the success/failure of each was recorded.

Bolatito Adetula, freshman, Undecided

“Are you from Tennessee? Cause you’re the only ten I see.”

Success: 3 out of 5

Hassan Salah, freshman, Undeclared Business

“Do you wanna grab lunch?”

Success: 2 out of 5

Marina Adly, senior, Exercise Science

“Did you fall from heaven? Cause you look like an angel.”

Success: 2 out of 5
