13 Pick-Up Lines That Used To Make Middle School Girls' Hearts Go Knock Knock

Middle school was a time of not only finding yourself but also finding love for the first time. Just talking to a boy at your locker after class was enough to give you butterflies that would last the rest of the night as you ate dinner with you parents desperately trying to not show that you were totally in love.

From full cans of Axe body spray, mimicking JB's classic swoop hairstyle, and a head-to-toe Hollister outfit, middle school boys tried everything in their power to win over our hearts.

But how did these boys so ultimately capture our hearts and give us that weird nauseous feeling that we all craved so badly?

Their terrible but somehow charming classic middle school pick up lines.

1. "143"

Because sometimes just saying "I love you" was far too complicated and needed to be shortened.

2. "Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk by again?"

This was the most polite and flirtatious way to say "we're going to date whether you like it or not." And somehow, it worked just about every time.

3. "Rawr means 'I love you' in dinosaur."

Not only is just saying "I love you" easier, this is just really weird.

4. "I would only change one thing about you... your last name."

Not going to lie, this one still melts my heart. Just wow. 13-year-old me was dying to have someone say this to me.

5. "Life without you would be like a broken pencil. Pointless."

... I know we were only 13 but was this really the best those boys could come up with?

6. "If I could rearrange the alphabet I would put 'u' and 'i' together."

Didn't we all make this our Facebook status at one point?

7. "Roses are red, violets are blue. Lava is hot and so are you."

I remember a boy using this one to another girl in my class while we were learning about lava in Earth Science class. So well played.

8. "I lost my number. Can I have yours?"

Why did this one literally work every. single. time????

9. "If you were a booger I'd pick you first."

This has always been gross, even in middle school, but at least back then boogers were still funny.

10. "I think you've stolen something of mine. My heart."

Imagine getting a text like this on your Razor cell phone... instantly boyfriend material.

11. "Do you have a phone in your back pocket? That booty is calling me."

Honestly, middle school boys should NEVER have been saying this to anyone, but I'l admit that it was clever and pretty funny. It would have gotten me interested, too.

12. "I dropped something... my jaw."

No offense... but just pick it up and stop trying, please.

13. "Let's commit the perfect crime. I'll steal your heart and you'll steal mine."

This is straight out of my Facebook messages with my first ever middle school boyfriend. And it's exactly how he captured my heart.

Do any of these still work today? Only one way to find out...

If You Go Into Summer 2019 Only Wanting A Summer Fling, You're Only Going To Be Disappointed

They may be fun but sometimes come with consequences.

We've all been through the summer flings. Summer is THE season where you have no commitment and are as free as can be with no care in the world. I've been on both ends of summer flings, from having one and cutting things off when summer ended and having one and gaining feelings for the other person... I've actually been dating my summer fling from 2017 for almost a year and a half now which was totally unexpected.

Back in Summer 2017, I was newly single and wasn't intentionally looking for a relationship since I just got out of one. I had a couple of small flings in the beginning, nothing serious at all. Until I met a boy in July from social media. We started talking and hit it off. We had a lot in common and enjoyed a lot of the same things. After a few weeks of talking, some flirting and a couple of dates... we had a fling going on. We weren't committed or anything, but we were both interested in each other. Long story short, I ended up really liking this guy and I could feel our fling diminishing, so I guess you could say I played some hard to get and "won" him over for good. It took a lot and I could definitely say it wasn't a care-free summer since I was trying to get him to make it official with me but now, here we are as boyfriend and girlfriend still to this day.

From my experiences and from friends experiences, summer flings almost always end with someone falling for you or you falling for them. And if you're really not looking for a relationship after summer, it can be quite hassle ending things for good due to feelings. Summer flings can also take time away from your family and friends. Everyone knows spending summer with someone you're interested in is fun, although it most likely won't be permanent, so why waste your time on them when you could be making those summer memories with your friends who will be there always?

A lot of the times, summer flings just involve hooking up and casual dates... nothing too serious. They don't involve "relationship" type feelings. But when you start to gain attachment to that person, sometimes they won't care like you do since summer flings are meant to be temporary. Of course, the person you have a fling with is someone you're into or at least think is good looking and when you find out you're not their only summer fling, jealousy can hit. Like stated above, summer is the season of no worries, and you shouldn't let jealousy take over your care-free attitude.

Summer flings, almost all the time, end in some sort of heartbreak when that isn't the intention in the beginning at all. But other times, they do work out and you guys call it quits and both move on or both end up in a relationship with each other (which was my case and I couldn't be happier to this day!). So, if your plan is to have a fling this upcoming summer, make sure you plan ahead for any type of scenarios that could potentially happen as well as know what you both want in the end.
