It's no secret that women want a guy with money. It's not a matter of gold digging; it's a matter of not being stuck with an unemployed loser whose yearly income can be counted on his hands and feet. While this line will definitely grab attention, there is a downside: short guys will be giving away the fact that the tiny little man trying to pick up the Amazon at the bar will only get shorter when he reaches for his wallet to pay for dinner, thus putting more importance on the guy actually having money. Being rich makes up for a lot of physical disadvantages.

"Is Your Name WiFi? Because I'm Really Feeling a Connection."
Out of all the pickup lines like it -- where a girl is asked a question, and the guy's follow-up statement is a pun based on the question -- this one is a clear winner. Why? Because usually the follow-up is a statement so perverse, so profane, so disgusting that it should only be used if your intent is to be slapped out of your chauvinism. Yes, of course it's ridiculous to ask if someone is named WiFi. No one is named WiFi, and the only babies who will be named WiFi in the future will be so ruthlessly mocked throughout their lives they will never, ever be found in popular hangout spots where pickup lines are used. But pickup lines are in no way guaranteed to get you bumping uglies in the sack; they exist solely to break the ice and get a giggle out of a potential partner, getting you started off on the right foot, thus opening the pathway for conversation. It's a silly line, but with enough charm and humor behind it, it can work on anyone.
