Anybody dating on the site? Share your stories. Flavorpill has graciously put together a list of 25 bookworm pickup lines. Here are three of our favorites:

(2) “I’m looking for a Malcolm Gladwell fan who can get me over the tipping point in the blink of an eye.”
(3) “Hey, baby, the sun is not the only thing that also rises.”
