Your chat up style is…. Cheesy

Wow, we wouldn’t be surprised if your nickname was Cheddar. Your chat-up style is clichéd and your choice of pick-up lines are bordering on cringeworthy. But it’s not all bad news. Recent research revealed cheesy chat up lines are sometimes the most successful. It’s all about how you deliver the line and whether you can make the object of your affections laugh. We say keep trying!

Mostly Bs
Your chat up style is… Smooth

When it comes to romance you like to take a good old-fashioned approach relying on charm and gallantry rather than corny lines and clichéd gifts. We like your style and there’s certainly nothing wrong with a bit of chivalry from time to time, but be careful not to cramp her style by quashing her independence.

Mostly Cs
Your chat up style is… Hopeless

We’re glad to see you’re trying but we’re sorry to say your technique leaves a lot to be desired. Approaching someone you fancy can make the best of us tongue tied and anxious. In future try taking a few deep breaths to calm your nerves and don’t fidget. Stand tall and act confident even if you don’t feel it and above all think before you speak.
