Top 40 pick up lines

First, we should explain exactly what a pickup line is: it’s a short, flirty phrase that you say to someone to open a conversation and let them know you’re interested in them romantically. Sometimes they can be used to show off how witty you are, that you’re self-confident enough to be cringe in public or just to make someone else laugh.

We’ve made a list of our 40 best pick up lines, from corny one-liners to lines that actually work, we’ve got an array of styles to entertain someone you’re on a date with – even if you just love bad jokes. The most important part of deploying a pick up line is the use of timing, put your comedy chops to work and be careful not to be too forward and they’ll be falling in love faster than a speeding ticket.

10 pickup lines to make your date cringe

Even Taylor Swift knows it’s OK to be a little corny to be successful. Embracing the cheesy and feeling a little less self-conscious about how you look is a great way to draw people – and dates – in. There’s nothing wrong with being cheesy, anyway, we believe that everyone needs a little cheese in their lives (unless they’re lactose intolerant, in that case, we’re sorry). With these cringe-y pickup lines, we have the cringe factor covered:

1. Is there an airport nearby; or is that just my heart taking off?

2 Hi, I’m Mr Right, somebody said you were looking for me?

3. Do you have a map? I keep getting lost in your eyes.

4. Am I dead? Because I think I just met an angel.

5. Let’s make like fabric softener and snuggle.

6. Were you arrested earlier? It must be illegal to look that good.

7. Nice legs, what time do they open?

8. Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?

9. I’ve lost that loving feeling, will you help me find it again?

10. Hi the voices in my head told me to come talk to you.

10 pickup lines for a quick laugh

A sense of humour is key when it comes to dating – who doesn’t love to laugh together?! It doesn’t matter how bad the pickup line is, it only matters if you can deliver it in a way that makes the other person smile. After all, no one wants to date someone who doesn’t make them laugh. So using some funny pickup lines might sounds like the ideal way to make people run for the hills, but could end up with them wanting more (of you, probably not the cheesy pickup lines):

1. Screw me if I’m wrong, but you want to kiss me, don’t you?

2. Are you free tonight, or will it cost me?

3. Get your coat; you’ve pulled.

4. My name is ______. Remember that, you’ll be screaming it later.

5. Hey babe, wanna see my baby elephant?

6. I guess you can kiss Heaven goodbye. Because it has got to be a sin to look that good.

7. There must be something wrong with my phone, because it doesn’t have your number in it.

8. I hope you know CPR? Because you take my breath away.

9. Is your father a thief? Because someone stole the stars from the sky and put them in your eyes.

10. You must be tired, because you’ve been running through my mind all night!

10 pickup lines that will have them rolling their eyes

Pickup lines should make you roll your eyes! It’s a firm belief that any line worth its metal should make someone affectionately mock you – and that’s a good thing. A little mutual jab at each other is a conversation starter as well as a great way to bond with someone new in your life. Just make sure you avoid any areas that are offensive or too sensitive when you’re trying to look good. Here we have a selection of pickup lines that will make your date pretend they hate them, but will actually have them secretly blushing:

1. If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put U and I together.

2. Pick a number between 1 and 10. Sorry you lost, you’ll have to take off all your clothes.

3. Do you like raisins? Well how about a date then?

4. Excuse me, do you know how much a polar bear weighs? No? Me neither, but it breaks the ice.

5. Here’s 10p ring home and tell your mum that you won’t be coming home tonight!
