We may be a bit biased over here, but we are pretty sure that dating a nurse is one of the best ideas you could have. We’re smart, determined, and we definitely know how to nurture and take care of people! Not to mention, we’re great multi-taskers with a lot of personal drive.
So, how do you snag one of us to be your hot date for the weekend? Well, buckle up, because we’ve got a handful of excellent pick-up lines that, while kinda cheesy, will certainly make an impression on that nurse you’ve got your eye on!
- “Are your legs tired? You’ve been running through my mind ALL day long.”
You know what? Yes, my legs are tired! Thanks for asking!
But in all seriousness, nurses are on our feet literally all day. We’re walking up and down hallways and into and out of rooms – and that’s when we are LUCKY! A lot of the time we get an emergency call and have to pretty much sprint to get to a patient.
- “Hey girl, are you a pulmonary embolism? Cause you’re making me breathless.”
Want to really wow that nurse you’re crushing on? Throw out some medical lingo and show us you know what you’re talking about. It doesn’t have to be much – even a little hint that you could maybe show some ongoing interest in our profession might be enough to get us to return the crush. And what with that pulmonary embolism, it might just get you some mouth to mouth!
- “Dang girl, are you my appendix because I don’t understand how you work but this feeling in my stomach makes me want to take you out.”
Convoluted? A bit. Hilarious? Definitely. We can really appreciate a person who comes up with a great analogy like this one. And even though we don’t absolutely love being compared to what is arguably the least useful part of the human body, it’s nice to know that we’re causing you to feel some type of way – especially if that feeling is a gut instinct to treat us to a nice date.
- “Are you drowning? Because I’m feeling the urge to give you CPR.”
Are we drowning? Yeah, probably! Drowning in paperwork and angry patients and pushy bosses! But it’s nice of you to think of us and consider what we might need. CPR may not be the ticket, but how about a nice relaxing evening with Netflix and a glass (or three) of wine? Then we can see how that CPR goes!
- “Hey girl, are you a defibrillator? Cause you’re sending shocks straight to my heart.”
Down boy! But really, we’re going to be impressed with any guy who can pronounce the word “defibrillator” correctly while asking us out on a date. And while those shocks may not be intentional (apologies, sir!), we’re happy to know you’re feeling a little electricity between us, especially if it’s kick-starting your heart!
- “I think you’re suffering from a lack of vitamin me.”
Well, this is a pretty gutsy line, to be honest. What exactly are the symptoms of not getting enough of this vitamin?
But actually, we kind of dig this one. It’s not every day that you meet a guy or gal that remembers to take their vitamins. And for those of us in the healthcare profession, we take personal health very seriously, so keep popping those Flintstone gummies!
- “You better call life alert because I’ve fallen for you and I can’t get up!”
This one just blows us away! It takes a very brave man (or woman) to admit when he needs a bit of assistance. Luckily for you, helping people is exactly what we do. But in your case, we’re a bit tempted to let you stay fallen for us; it’s nice to know we’ve knocked someone head over heels.
- “Do I have to get critically injured or ill to see you again, or can I just call you?”
This is an actual line used by a guy in the hospital with the nurse who was taking care of him. It’s a risky move, but hey, if you like us so much you’re willing to risk bodily harm just to talk to us, we might be into it. It’s probably easier to just ask for our number, though.
