Ever wonder how the Victorian gentleman picked up a classy Victorian lady while at the local pub? Here are a few pick-up lines a charming young man might try when meeting a young woman he fancies.
Man to Woman:
That dress is very becoming on you. But then, if I were on you, I would also be highly aroused to the point of paroxysm.
Are you on your way to a fancy dress ball? Because you look like an angel.
Your skin is like alabaster….your leeches must work overtime!
Do I have scarlet fever, or is it you who is making me so delirious?
Have you read Madame Bovary? Wanna go for a carriage ride?
Your eyes are shining! Brain fever?
Do you have a sextant? Because I’m lost in your eyes.
Are you from Andover? Would you ‘andover your address?
And what if an adventurous Victorian woman happens to see a gentleman she likes? Perhaps she might use one of these winning lines.
Woman to Man:
If you were a carriage, you’d be a hansom.
I’ve got five thousand pounds a year.
I’m looking for someone to sweep my chimney, and I like the look of your brush.
