Pick Up Lines for Economists

I like to prepare for worst-case scenarios. For example, let’s say you’re in an economics class and just happen to sit next to a very attractive female. And that she’s an aspiring economist. Let’s say this class is Introduction to Econometrics and that this fine specimen of a female is hanging on the professor’s every word. You know that you’re sitting next to the next Marianne Bertrand or Caroline Hoxby or another bad-ass economist that can’t use the mens bathroom.

Let’s use some simplified game theory, you have 3 options:

1. Say something normal. She will look at you, do a cost-benefit analysis of engaging in conversation with you, decide that she’d rather read her econ textbook which will maximize her PVLR and she terminates your conversation.

2. Choke and say nothing. You have already lost this game.

3. Use a witty pick up line that will appeal to her inner economist. You can only win her heart if you first win over her mind. But do you know any such pick-up lines? Probably not, thats why we prepare for such scenarios.

Here are 10 pick up lines to help you win over a budding economist:

10. I wish I could be your derivative so that I could lie tangent to your curves
9. Lets play a game where going out with me is the dominant strategy
8. I can stimulate you with my package
7. How can I lower your barriers to entry?
6. Your presence is one big positive externality
5. C’mon, it’s getting late, and we both know I’m your lender of last resort
4. I’m a pure public good…you can free-ride on me any time you want
3. You have a boyfriend? That’s ok. My girlfriend and I are into credit-swapping
2. I couldn’t help but notice your monetary base. Do you let a guy get to M3 on a first date?
1. I think you and me would have great potential output

(Note 1: Some of these are actually very suggestive, I recommend you use them wisely)

(Note 2: If you have any others, add them as a comment below!)

(Note 3: some of these lines were found on the internet)
