The online dating world is a magnet for creeps, but these cunning users are sending them home packing with their clever pick-up line comebacks.

If you’re familiar with Tinder or any other dating/hook-up app—let’s be real, you probably are—then you’ve inevitably dealt with a few duds and lousy pick-up lines in your day. They ask for nudes right off the bat. Their lack of social skills and knowledge of flirting makes you wonder if they’re even human. Their earth-shatteringly corny pick-up lines hit you right in the cringe.

Fear no more because, thanks to the heroic beings you see below, you’ll know the best comebacks when low-lives decide to grace your phone screen. ‘Politeness is the strongest weapon’ must be a motto for these people with the anti pick-up lines—their affable-yet-savage lines are guaranteed to leave a scar.

Scroll down below for our picks of the best pick up line comebacks.

Funny Comebacks for Guys Hitting on You

Rejection doesn’t have to be a buzzkill—it can be a shared smile if you inject a little humor into it. Use creative metaphors to keep it light and playful. These smooth responses to pick-up lines will help you gracefully sidestep unwanted advances:

ADVERTISEMENT
  • “If my love life were a coffee, it’d be decaf. Just a whole latte ‘nope.’”
  • “Sorry, I’m booked up in the past, present, and future. Time traveler problems, you know?”
  • “If laughter is the best medicine, your face must be curing the world.”
  • “Do you have a map? I keep getting lost in your mediocrity.”
  • “Excuse me, but I think you dropped something: my interest.”
  • “If I were a cat, I’d probably use one of my nine lives just to avoid this conversation.”

How Do You Politely Say No to Someone?

If you can’t think of clever pick-up line comebacks, the safest option is to turn them down politely. Be honest and direct—no one likes beating around the bush. Politely say you’re not feeling it, but don’t go all Shakespeare on them. Keep it real; keep it simple.

ADVERTISEMENT

Also, acknowledge their effort because, hey, they took a shot! Thank them for the compliment to soften the rejection. No need to dissect their approach and cheesy lines meaning like a science project. Keep it positive. Less “you did this wrong” and more “I’m just not in that zone.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Finally, if you don’t have any comebacks to pick up lines, just be diplomatic. Instead of saying, “You’re not my type,” go for, “I’m not looking for that right now.” Makes it about your feelings, not their qualities.

What the hell kind of pickup line is that? "I'm both freakishly forward about sex AND awkwardly emotional about it". ???

I think its amazing how men can just straight up say ignorant things to a female. Young men need to learn respect.
