Dear Gentlemen of the World,
We know how heart-in-your-toes scary it can be when you’re dying to ask out that pretty girl in your biology class — especially if you’re plagued with foot-in-mouth disease. That’s why we made it easy for you with this handy dating guide featuring 15 pickup lines courtesy of Justin Bieber lyrics. He nabbed Spring Breakers’ Selena Gomez and has millions of Beliebers vying for his heart, so he must be doing something right… right?
We noted the exact moments when these lyrics could help you score or get you out of awkward situations. Please keep in mind this guide is wholly unscientific, unproven and might admittedly HURT your chances of dating someone.
Not a Dating Expert
“Tell me what you like yeah tell me what you don’t/ I could be your Buzz Lightyear, fly across the globe.”
“I can be a gentleman (gentleman), anything you want/ If I was your boyfriend (boyfriend), I’d never let you go, never let you go.”
When to use them: These lyrics are most effective during that pre-stage dating ritual known as courtship. You’re providing her with hypothetical examples of how dating you will benefit her — once she gets the visual, there’s no going back. Moreover, the Buzz Lightyear reference will immediately blast her with nostalgia, ensuring she associates you with good thoughts.
Song: “One Less Lonely Girl” and “Somebody to Love”
“Don’t need these other pretty faces like I need you/ And when you’re mine, in the world/ There’s gonna be one less lonely girl.”
“Christmas wasn’t merry, 14th of February not one of them spent with you.”
“Step to the beat of my heart/ I don’t need a whole lot/ But for you I admit I/ I’d rather give you the world/ Or we can share mine/ I know I won’t be the first one/ giving you all this attention/ Baby listen/ I just need somebody to love.”
When to use them: After lightheartedly listing off all the amazing things you’d do if you were her boyfriend, make known your actions to hurdle this wish into reality. The benefits go both ways: you’d both be less lonely.
Song: “First Dance”
“Only if you give, give your first dance to me/ Girl, I promise I’ll be gentle/ I know we gotta do it slowly/ If you give (give it), give the first dance to me (give it)/ I’m gon’ cherish every moment/ ’cause it only happens once, once in a lifetime”
Song: “U Smile”
“I’d wait on you forever and a day/ Hand and foot/ Your world is my world.”
When to use them: Before the movie trailers on the first date. Instead of awkwardly braving silence lean in and whisper these words. Unfortunately some girls might take this bold forwardness as creepy but others might be impressed by your confidence.
“You are my love, you are my heart/ And we will never ever ever be apart/ Are we an item? Girl, quit playing/ We’re just friends, what are you saying?”
When to use it: After the first date when she claims you’re just friends. Back it up and tell her to QUIT PLAYIN.
Song: “Never Say Never”
“I will never say never! (I will fight)/ I will fight till forever! (make it right)/ Whenever you knock me down/ I will not stay on the ground”
When to use them: If she keeps rejecting you tell her you’re like the warrior from Dances With Wolves and will keep buying her pink roses until she agrees to a date. Persistance impresses some girls and totally turns off others. At lease you’ll know you tried like Lieutenant Dunbar.
Song: “All Around the World” and “Never Let You Go”
“You’re imperfectly perfect.”
“You shine just like the sun while the moon and the stars reflect your light.”
“It’s like an angel came by and took me to heaven/ ’cause when I stare in your eyes it couldn’t be better.”
When to use them: During the Honeymoon faze when everything is imperfectly perfect and you can’t stop staring longingly into each other’s eyes. If your intense gazes and PDAs are causing other people to gag, you know it’s the right time to say these phrases to your date.
Song: “Die In Your Arms”
“Oh, I can’t help it, I’m just selfish/ There’s no way that I could share you/ That would break my heart to pieces/ Honestly the truth is…/ If I could just die in your arms/ I wouldn’t mind.”
When to use them: Angry that she went over to her BBFs on Friday night and left you at home alone to wallow in despair while watching viral cat videos? You might get in an argument. Just let her know those selfish feelings come out of love and you’re so diehard you’d literally die while being held be her. You want to be with her like Liam’s with Miley and Gayle’s with Oprah.
Song: “Beauty and the Beat”
“We gonna party like it’s 3012 tonight/ I wanna show you all the finer things in life/ So just forget about the world, be young tonight/ I’m coming for ya, I’m coming for ya.”
When to use it: Just before an epic house party when you’re about to go inside. Admittedly, most girls might question your reference to partying 1000 years from now — because clearly that’s after the Zombie Apocalypse —but still no one will be able to call you a wet blanket.
