It is outright that you are asking for her contacts, though, in a sophisticated way.

50. You are like magic because even when I have a bad day, I look at your photo and everything improves.

Make her feel extra special with this.

Putting it together: Take your time to learn from her

The trick to a perfect pick-up line is playing with words and passing a message. Some girls will find funny pick-up lines attractive, while others will find cheesy ones more attractive.

Imagine sending a cheesy opener to a girl who upholds strong religious values? You would sound like a complete pervert.

It’s up to you to try to figure out who they are and what they like by going through those profiles. Before you send that opener, take your time to learn from her to avoid offending her rather than making her feel special.

Ask yourself if the opener you intend to send would make them want to go on a date with you.

After all, that’s your end goal.
