There are some things that we’re proud (?) to say are totes Auckland—and of course, that has to resonate strongly in your feeble attempts to pick up a Aucklander, right? So we thought we’d put together 20 Auckland-specific pick-up lines that would only work in our wonderfully weather-troubled, food-adoring city.
Please note: We will not be responsible for any physical or emotional repercussions due to an attempt to apply these IRL on a Friday night.
#1 “I would cancel my reservation at The French Cafe for you.”
#2 “You’re harder to get around than Gillies Ave in peak hour.”
#3 “You’re better than a steamed bun from The Blue Breeze Inn.”
#4 “I’d stay away from the Longroom if you were mine.”
#5 “Want to wear matching buns in our hair?”
#6 “Is that a doughnut in your pants, or are you just glad to see me?”
#7 “I have a table available at Depot in 10 minutes. Want to join me for dinner?”
#8 “If you were mine, I would bring you Giapo ice cream all night, every night.”
#9 “Let’s get Vietnamese from Café Hanoi because I’m falling pho you.”
#10 “I get compliments for my man braids. Like, a lot.”
#11 “You put the bacon in brunch.”
#12 “I’d give up my vegan, diary-free, sugar-free and gluten-free diet for you.”
#13 “Are you a Cereal Killa freakshake? Because I want you in my mouth.”
#14 “I would sit in rush-hour traffic for you.”
#15 “Your activewear would look nice on my bedroom floor.”
#16 “Rose are red. Violets are blue. Rent’s expensive. I bought nothing for you.”
#17 “Let’s get brunch. I’ll even shout you that $5 guacamole.”
#18 “I’d save my last New Flavour dumpling for you.”
#19 “Cancel your Les Mills membership. My bed’s a gym and you’re free to join.”
#20 And the ultimate Auckland pick-up line (drum-roll, please)… “Are you from The Shore? Because you look like a shore thing.”
