Everyone knows that guys only get into accounting to pick up the ladies and let’s be honest, it works like a charm. But what do you do if you are on the other side and you just can’t wait for him to introduce himself?

While we wait for www.DateAnAccountant.com to finally launch (come on guys, it’s been years) here are some pick up lines for accountants you can use in the real world.

pick up lines for accountants
Get ready for those accountants to start lining up!

“If 4+4=8, then me plus you equals fate.”

The accountant will be dazzled by your maths skills. Start planning what to wear on your date that you’re definitely going to get thanks to this winner of a pick up line.

“You should have listed me as a deduction, because I’m dependent on your love.” 

This one could sound a little needy so be sure to top it off with a few weeks of being standoffish and not replying to texts to balance it out. Ahhh dating.

“It’s accrual world out there but I’m willing to invest in you.”

This is straight from the heart and will show your vulnerable side. This is also appropriate for when you propose to said accountant a few weeks later.

“How about we get out of here and appreciate each other’s assets.”

Risqué. This one will require the use of slightly raised eyebrows to really bring the message home. Keep them raised until you get your answer.

Slowly slide your number across the bar to the accountant and say “How do these numbers look to you?”

At first the accountant will be disappointed to be accosted with work while out of the office but once they see that it is a phone number they will move to stage 2 …confusion. This is the perfect time to wink and say “just go with it”.

“What are you doing on Saturday night? Because I’m accounting on taking you out.

No one can say no to this. Unless they are busy on Saturday night. In which case you should continue with “Well then I’m accounting on taking you out on Sunday… Monday… Tuesday…”
