Horrible Swimming Valentine's Day Pickup Lines

These 18 Lines May Help You Score a Date

The pool is a great avenue for romance, and swimming is a unique sport where opposite sexes practice together while wearing next to nothing. This togetherness creates the opportunity for dating, love, and eventually marriage. If you are without a valentine this Valentine's Day, try one of these uber-cheesy swimming-inspired pickup lines on a swimmer, and you might get lucky.

Use this pickup line if you find yourself next to a potential love interest near the end of your practice session or workout. As you both leave the pool, this line could serve to spark further discussion.

Tapering in swimming — or in any competitive sport actually — refers to reducing your swim workouts and exercises in the days before a big competition. So, use this line if you know your love interest is set to reduce her workout regimen, giving her extra time — potentially — to go on​ a date with you.​

 Yes, this one's cheesy. But, it just may work: Use it if you know your swimming love interest competes in an event the requires the flip turn, such as freestyle.

Use this one if the object of your desire uses goggles, which most competitive swimmers do. So, this is a good line to use with any competitive swimmer, male or female.

The "black lines," of course, separate lanes and help guide swimmers to stick to the straight-and-narrow as they race. This is a good line to use if you can say it with a smile; otherwise, it may sound awkward.

This may be the cheesiest line yet. But, if you can say it with a sense of humor, use it right after your love interest has finished a particularly energetic swim.

I'm Not Sure If It's the 200 Butterfly or You That Just Took My Breath Away

 This is a good line to use if one — or both — of you are butterfly swimmers. The butterfly may be the most grueling swim stroke, so if both of you compete in this event, you'll likely form an immediate bond.

Well, don't use this line if your intended is a sprinter. Clearly, this line will work best if you and the swimmer you want to meet are both distance swimmers.

Be careful with this pickup line. Use it only if you know the swimmer you're talking to appreciates the compliment about his/her body figure.

 Any swimmer who starts a race from a dive position — which is just about any competitive swimmer — may appreciate this line. You'll also likely cause the swimmer you're approaching to subconsciously think about how her knees feel weak when in the crouching position ready to dive into the pool.

Are You a Breath Control Set? Because You Take My Breath Away

This one may not be the best line, but any swimmer will relate to it. In swimming, proper breathing is a major part of this competitive sport.

You Are like My Snorkel, Because You're Wrapped Around My Mind

 This line really doesn't relate to competitive swimming: Competitive swimmers don't use snorkels. But, it is a cute line if you can't think of anything else.

This is a cute line. Swimmers sometimes wear paddles when training to increase resistance.  So, your love interest will likely relate to this line.

This may be one of the best lines on the list. After all, what can the swimmer you approach say? No, the coach didn't say that? Even if he does, that can be a great way to start a conversation.

This line is pretty forward. Use it only if you already have a rapport with your intended love interest. Or at least, use it only if you know she won't be offended.

As with the previous pickup line that mentioned lane lines, this one will also conjure up obvious images for swimmers. Anyone who has ever competed in swimming has spent hours looking at these black lines.
