Love him or loathe him, there’s no denying that William Shakespeare had a way with words. Widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language, Shakespeare’s plays, sonnets, and poems have captured the hearts of lovebirds (and the lovelorn) around the world since the late 1500s.

This Valentine’s Day, let the Bard be your wingman. Tell bae to come over and get ready to woo with some of Shakespeare’s greatest pick-up lines.

A little confusing, sure, but sweet!

So cheesy it just might work.

Try this one next time you’re out dancing.

For that love/hate relationship: equal parts insulting and romantic!

For when you’re low-key playing hard-to-get.

…Well, it gets the point across.

If bae is particularly enchanting. 

When they def look as good as they did in their profile pic.

Let it be known that your love is true.


When one kiss just isn’t enough.
