Thanks to the release of the limited series "Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story" on 4 May, I think we can officially say it's "Bridgerton" time again. And this, of course, means three things: we have new sex scenes, plenty of drama, and new Regency-era pickup lines, too.
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 sexting example) 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."
And then, lovers Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley) dropped some major pickup lines — and dare I say dirty talk? — in the second season, too. The eldest Bridgerton son said things like, "You are the bane of my existence and the objects of my desire" and "All I find myself thinking about, all I find myself being able to breathe for, is you."
To be honest, I didn't think the lines from season one and two could be topped. But as it turns out, "Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story" came in even harder with the romantic quotes and metaphors. Here were a few of my favorite pickup lines from the limited series:
- "I will stand with you between the heavens and the earth."
- "My heart calls your name."
- "I cannot breathe when you are near."
- "Look at you. You are a rare jewel."
- "It is you and me."
So because I am utterly in love with all of the sexy musings and one-liners from the shows, I decided to use them as pickup lines 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.
