Ancient Greek Pickup Lines - with the Greek!

Ancient Greek Pick-up Lines:

You light up my world like Apollo.

ὅμοιος Ἀπόλλων γῆν μου λάμπεις.

I would perform twelve labors for you.
τοι δώδεκα ἄθλους ἀν ποιοῖμι.

*Is your name Lucius? Because that ass is golden.
Tibi nomen Lucius est? illae nates enim aureae sunt.

If Narcissus knew you, he would love you more than he loves himself.
εἰ Νάρκισσος τε εἰδείη, μᾶλλον ἑαυτοῦ τε ἀν φίλοι.

You’re so beautiful, Aphrodite is probably trying to kill you.
τοσοῦτος καλλίμορφος εἲ, Ἀφροδίτη ὡς ἔοικε κτείνειν τε ἐπιχείρει.

Hera wouldn’t even mind if Zeus loved You.
οὐδὲ Ἥρα ἀγανακτοίη, εἰ τε Ζεύς φίλοι.

Helen is nothing compared to you.
Ἑλένη οὐδὲν ἐστὶν πρὸς τε.

Is your name Circe? Because you make me feel like an animal.
ὄνομα σὸς Κίρκη ἐστίν; ὅτι με ποίει ὅμοιον ζῷον ἔχειν.

Are you a god/goddess? Because your beauty is burning me. No, seriously. I think I’m dying.
θεὸς/θέα εἴ; ὅτι σὸς κάλλος με καίει. οὐ, συντόνως. νομίζω ψυχορραγεῖν.


*And one in Latin, ‘cause I can.
