Is That a Press Release in Your Pocket…

Why is it so many PR people can’t find love? We’re just like everyone else, so what makes it difficult for all of us flacks? My assumption is because we are all workaholics and have a 24/7 commitment to our job.

There is also the fact that we spent so much time building relationships with media we forget how to act “normal” in our own personal lives. I guess the fact that most of us can talk nonstop for hours and a love interest can’t get a word in doesn’t help either. . . .

Well, all the singles reading this out there are in luck. Not only am I hot PR Pro, but I’m also a love guru. Below you will find some of
the best PR pickup lines that are sure to get you a date, or two, maybe even a slap in the face.

When you are scoping out the scene and someone catches your eye, drop one of the following lines:

  • Is that a press release in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
  • Let’s go somewhere dark and quiet with two land lines.
  • I’ll show you my list if you show me yours. . . .

After a little talking with someone and you’re ready to advance a little, try these:

  • I would love to get in your media list!
  • Let me guess, you’re a Virgo, I’m a Cision, we are meant to be together.
  • Who is your AOR?!

When you are ready to seal the deal, these lines are sure to make it happen:

  • I’m ”SM” trained. . . .
  • I could pitch you all night long.
  • My biggest hit last month was the Wall Street Journal, but I’d hit that any month!

One thing that shouldn’t be said and will keep you alone all night:

  • We should go out for a drink and talk PR.

If, and when, you are successful meeting someone always do the proper PR thing to do:

  • Was it good for you? I’m just following up!

To all the singles out there, I wish you the best of luck and hope that these PR pickup lines will come in handy for you!

What other PR pickup lines would you use or fancy?

May the force be with you. . . .

  • CT, seriously, I love these posts. They make my mornings so much better.

    My personal favorite:

    If, and when, you are successful meeting someone always do the proper PR thing to do:

    * Was it good for you? I’m just following up!

  • I already told you this, but you made me laugh out loud and look like a freak at the bus stop.

    I love the follow up one and I also love:
    “Let me guess, you’re a Virgo, I’m a Cision, we are meant to be together.”

    LOVE YOUU.

    wow you truly do suck at writing… who exactly lets u post these dumb articles on this dumb site; My favorite was the other post in which you talk about being so real. That’s the furthest thing from the truth. You know very well that you are big CLOSETED queen that drinks theirs problems away. How about you start writing something good. thanks CT!

  • Too funny!
    Ah, but what about the situation where someone you've pitched turns around and asks you out on a date? Tell me I'm not the only one…

  • I guess you could give the good ol' “no comment” even though we really should never use it IRL.

  • I would try and get the placement first 😉

  • That's easy ….
    Drinks = single glowing quote
    Dinner = Profile or no competing organizations/people cited in the story
    Dinner & Breakfast (i.e. consecutively) = Profile cover story/A1 above the fold
    Anything more = client must become ongoing 'official ____' or formal 'Correspondent' on the topic for the pub.

  • Haha, Cog, you have no shame. just made me crack up at my desk. 😉

  • laurenfernandez

    Yeah…. but it gets worse when you pitch a reporter at the NYT only to find out they are your ex.

    Awkward…..

    But it got better when he started laughing, and we joked around for a bit. I got a better contact, but not something I'd suggest repeating.

  • 1) You're not just a head-turner, but a headline for a media alert

    2) I like my fonts big and bold.

    3) Can we exchange press kits?

    4) I'll show you my exclamation point if you show me yours.

    5) And the classic…can i invite you to a bedside briefing?
