LETTER OF THE DAY: University is a vital part of Portsmouth

Have your say

To celebrate Valentine’s Day we’ve come up with the 20 of the best chat-up lines ever used.

We can’t be 100 per cent sure but according to some local Romeos and Don Juans, some of these one-liners have resulted in true love.

1 - We must be near the airport because that sound you hear is my heart taking off!

2 - Were you arrested and taken to Portsmouth Police Station? Surely it’s illegal to look that good.

3 - Do you have a plaster? I hurt my knee when I fell for you.

4 - There must be something wrong with my phone, because it doesn’t have your number in it.

5 - Do you know what this T-shirt is made from? Boyfriend material.

6 - Do you own any land?

7 - Do you have a parking ticket? Because you’ve FINE written all over you.

8 - Do you know what a real Pompey man wears under his kilt? Nothing... Pompey men don’t wear kilts.

9 - I’m new to Portsmouth - could I have the directions to your house please?

10 - I bet your last name is Jacobs - because you’re a real cracker!

11 - Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile.

12 - Can I take your picture to prove to all my friends in Portsmouth that angels do exist?

13 - Can I buy you a drink or do you just want the money?

14 - If you were a transformer, you’d be a HOT-obot, and your name would be Optimus Fine.

15 - I’m no organ donor but I’d be happy to give you my heart.

16 - I hope you know CPR, cause you take my breath away!

17 - Do you have a sunburn, or are you always this hot?

18 - You’re so hot, I bet you could light all the candles in St Mary’s Church at 10 paces.

19 - Your eyes are as blue as window cleaner.

20 - Hello. Cupid called. He says to tell you that he needs my heart back.
