Did he know a little too much about you on the first date? You might have to start vetting future admirers for, er, NSA employment. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that employees of the National Security Agency, which was accused of collecting private user information from social networks and Internet providers, kept their love interests under surveillance.

After that romance-charged breaking news hit the Internet, #NSAPickupLines and the slightly more romantic #NSALovePoems hashtags began trending on Twitter and Tumblr. Even intelligence officers do crazy things in the name of love.

Laugh at more of the funniest — but also, creepiest — NSA pick up lines after the break.
