QUIZ: What’s Your Shakespearean Pick-Up Line?

Do pick-up lines actually work? I wouldn’t know. I’ve never tried one myself, and whenever someone tries one on me I naturally just assume they’re trying to steal my wallet.

Maybe pick-up lines would have a better overall success rate if they were SHAKESPEAREAN as opposed to sleazy, corny, or just plain bad. And since Shakespeare wanted nothing more than for people to be making out 100% of the time, I can tell you there’s no shortage of quotes from his works that could double as pick-up lines. It’s just a matter of finding the one that’s right for you.
