Six (highly questionable) icebreakers to try on Valentine’s Day


With Valentine’s Day arriving tomorrow, here are some questionable icebreakers that you could use to win over a date for the most romantic day of the year.

1. Wrong Time of Day:

Sunderland University student Liam Knox, 22, suggests to break the ice you should say:


Even (or especially) if it is 12 o’clock in the afternoon; this will apparently get you a first date just for your quirkiness.

2. Heaven:

As this is the cheesiest icebreaker to ever trouble existence, no wonder this person chose to remain anonymous.

“Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”

If this person is a big fan of cheese, you may be in luck: otherwise, they are cringing. Hard.

3. The Parking Ticket:

Jacob Carr, 19, a Northumbria University student, suggests you say:

Are you a parking ticket?

“Because you got FINE written all over you.”

It’s not bad, but it still might make you cringe!

4. The Walk By:

Another hopeful punt from an anonymous would-be Romeo:

“Do you believe love in first sight? Or should I just walk by again?”

Kudos for trying, but if the second time it still doesn’t work, she’s just not that into you.

5. The Polar Bear:

Stephen James, 27, a Morrisons baker, suggests this dazzler:

You: “How much does a Polar Bear weigh?”

Them: “I don’t know…”

You: “Neither do I – but it broke the ice.”

You never know, this one could work. Stranger things have happened.

6. Fanta:

Ben Trousdale, 23, a kitchen Fitter, suggests that you should just simply ask:

“Fancy a pint of Fanta?”

This may, by turns, confuse and intrigue your potential date. Who knows, it may fizz up something you never expected…
