The Language of Love: 10 Pick-Up Lines to help you Get Lucky around the World.

The Language of Love: Top 10 Pick-Up Lines to help you get Lucky around the World.

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day and the horrible,  crippling, depressing loneliness that invades so many single people’s lives around the world during this time I’ve decided no matter where you are this February 14th, I’m going to try to help you get lucky.

That’s right the ol’ Shameless Traveler is going to try to help and get you some. I’m not doing it alone though, I’ve asked several local experts (my friends) around the world what are the best pick up lines in their country and how to say them in their native language.

“We’re up all night to get lucky!”

I’m giving you a multi-lingual hair trigger Gatling gun locked and stocked with pick-up lines to dispense like Rambo on Red Bull and I’m doing it for free baby, on the house. Unsubscribe to that online dating website right now, you don’t need that weak shit anymore, I got your back. So, without further ado:

Now that you are some sort of super Frankenstein combination of Don Juan, Indiana Jones, and Private Detective John Shaft remember to carry a kind heart as you lay waste to the flesh and blood of Mother Earth’s sons and daughters.  Just because you can use these full proof dynamite mind blowing pick up lines on any unsuspecting foreign love interest you see doesn’t mean you should. With great pick up lines comes great responsibility… and baby mamas and baby daddies.  Until next time lovers and travelers may your lines be air tight, your game be Dolemite-esque, and your true love be only a hostel away. Happy Valentines Day!

P.S. Huge thanks to all my friends around the world who took the time to email me these, you know who you are, by far the best week of email I’ve had in a long, long time. If only they knew how many more you sent me….maybe part 2 in 2015?
