I Tried Finding My Viscount on Tinder With These Horny “Bridgerton” Pickup Lines


Thanks to the second season’s debut on March 25, it’s officially Bridgerton time again. And this, of course, means three things: we have new sex scenes, plenty of Lady Whistledown drama, and new Regency-era pickup lines.

Remember that season one brought us the love story between Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon (Regé-Jean Page). The two shared things like “I burn for you” (which is basically an 1800s-style sext) and “from the mornings you ease, to the evenings you quiet, to the dreams you inhabit, my thoughts of you never end. I am yours.” To be honest, I didn’t think the lines could be topped. But as it turns out, season two may have come in even harder with the romantic quotes and metaphors.

Sure, the new season has admittedly less sex, but that’s because the focus is less on, well, fornication, and more on the “slow build” type of intimacy – the kind that has you wanting to scream “just kiss already!” And with all that anticipation comes lots, and lots, and lots of pickup lines — and dare I say dirty talk? — from none other than Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) himself. The men in 2022 could never.

So because I was utterly in love with Anthony’s sexy musings and one-liners, I decided to use the best pickup lines from season two on my Tinder matches. Some were into it, some were confused, but either way, the lines were too good not to redistribute on a modern-day dating app. All the reactions and responses for your viewing (and my embarrassment) right this way.

1. The Tinder match who was unbothered.

2. The Tinder match who likely listens to a lot of Frank Ocean.

3. The Tinder match who maybe, probably, definitely has an avoidant attachment style.

4. The Tinder match who’s still waiting on me to prove something I don’t even know I’m proving.

5. The Tinder match who was about to report me for sounding like a robot. (“No, I’m just trying to be a regal viscountess, HBY?”)

6. The Tinder match who didn’t know how to translate 1800s dialect, which, touché.

7. The Tinder match who had no idea I was already throwing down my best lines.

8. The Tinder match who responded perfectly given this experiment.

9. The Tinder match who was interested in whatever the hell “the things I could teach you” means.

10. The Tinder match who enjoyed the explicitly sexy pickup line. (Definitely thought I was getting banned on Tinder for this one.)

11. The (one and only) Tinder match who knew his Bridgerton. Well done, Nick.
