100 Funny, Clever & Cheesy Pick Up Lines That Will Start A Conversation (Online & Offline)

The dating game has changed in the 21st century. We’ve gone digital and how! With Tinder and Bumble, our dating pool has increased dramatically and there are just so many ways to meet interesting people.


As a guy who has been hit on by women, I know for a fact that it’s sexy when a woman comes up to you in a bar (or on a dating app) and makes a move with a pick up line that packs a punch. Women are not afraid to chase after what they want and that confidence makes us (men) go weak in the knees.


So, the next time you see a cute guy at the bar and come across someone you like online, don’t wait for him to catch your eye; instead, take that first step. And what better way to do that than with a smooth pick up line?


Read a man’s guide to pick up lines that women can use to flirt with men and you’ll have all the ammo you need to initiate a conversation.


P.S. Flirting is a two-way street and consent goes both ways. Please be respectful of someone's personal space and don’t send anyone inappropriate messages while flirting.


What Are Pick Up Lines And Why Are They SO Popular?

A pick up line is a conversation starter. Pick up lines ranges from introducing yourself to asking about their interests and getting to know them. Most, if not all, pick up lines have a romantic overtone to them. Now there is nothing wrong in flattering someone - the catch is to be good at it.


They are also popular with TV shows and movies. Odds are that you must have seen (or heard) characters like Joey Tribbiani from Friends and Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother come up with brilliant pick up lines to flirt with women. Our Bollywood actors have given us gems. Remember ‘Bade bade shehron mein choti choti baatein hoti rehti hai, senorita,’ from Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge? What a masterstroke!

How Do Pick Up Lines Work?

As it turns out, these funny, corny, and even cliche lines are quite effective - but not every pick up line does the trick. Some fall flat because of the timing, while some never meant to work. You practice and you learn.


Researchers Christopher Bale, Rory Morrison and Peter G Caryl conducted a study in 2006 to find out the effects of pick up lines based on lines from various movie, TV, book, and internet sources. They asked both male and female participants to rate the effectiveness of each line for beginning a conversation with a woman. The participants' responses indicated that pick up lines highlighting a man's athleticism, culture, wealth, and generosity would most likely lead to further conversation, while those that were simply empty compliments, or overtly sexual, were judged to be the least effective.


Therefore, the researchers concluded that pick up lines work as an advertisement, filter and screening device for both the provider and the recipient. The type of pick up line a man chooses says something about his personality and attributes. Similarly, whether a woman finds a particular type of line appealing says something about her personality and attributes as well.


Do Women Use Pick Up Lines?

The short - yes, and making the first move to talk to a guy may actually work in a woman’s favour. According to a 2018 report, a survey by a dating app shows that one out of three successful heterosexual couples were started by the woman making the first move. In all those cases, the woman had messaged the guy first. (Source: TheLeague.com)


Guys are equally appreciative of women making the first move. A survey from 2016 by a dating app found that men love it when women make the first move in a relationship. The nationwide research was conducted with a universe of 7,000 users - 4,550 men and 2,450 women, between the age group of 18 to 30 years. As many as 62 per cent of the surveyed women confessed to having made the first move at some point of their dating lives, and 88 per cent of the men said that they find it really appealing when women take the first step.

How To Use A Pick Up Line Correctly

While people use plenty of pick up lines that are awkward, confusing, or just flat-out inappropriate, they’re not supposed to be that way. By definition, a pick up line is supposed to do two things - interest someone and begin a conversation.


There are no set rules on how you should deliver pick up lines for flirting. Trust yourself and just start talking. If you are thinking that it’s easy coming from a guy, it’s not. Every time I have to go up to a girl and introduce myself, I admit it’s pretty nerve-racking.


The fear of rejection sometimes holds men back. You are telling someone that you find them attractive and asking if they like you back. What if they don’t reciprocate your feelings or dismiss then? Well, that’s the chance you take for love!


Pick up lines level the field when you’re trying to catch someone’s eye. If I have to use a one-liner, I generally begin with a question about a general topic. It can be a movie releasing that week, a book I read, the drinks at the bar or the one common friend. That way the conversation does not have to be about you or the person you are talking to.


Focusing on your surroundings for a good pick up line will help you come up with better conversations starters. But sometimes, the best conversation starter is a simple, “How are you?”


When someone answers your question, give them a little in return! Break the ice, then tell them a bit about yourself. Pro tip: Don’t play games. If someone does not like your pick up line, do not try to throw multiple questions at them just to get a response.


5 Things To Keep In Mind When Using A Pick Up Line


  1. Be Confident
    4-pick-up-lines-girl-playing-badminton

    Confidence is attractive. Any guy would find it flattering to be hit on by a woman. Don’t doubt yourself and go for it.

  2. Be Yourself

    Be true to your nature. The pick up line you are about to say may be cheesy or flirty. If you are uncomfortable saying it, you should not. Don’t push at doing something you don’t want to..

  3. Keep It Casual
    6-pick-up-lines-girl-be-casual

    Pick up lines are meant to lighten the mood and get you started on a casual note. Make sure that whatever you talk about after that remains casual. No one likes to go into a serious conversation right from the word go.

  4. Try To Be Funny

    First impressions are usually better when you have a bit of humour in them. Almost every pick up line is funny. Most guys respond to humour more than anything else.

  5. Don't Be Afraid To Goof Up

    Lastly, if a line doesn’t work out it doesn’t mean that the entire world has to come crashing down. It just means that you haven’t hit a cord with the right guy. Do not allow yourself to be deflated after a pick up line falls flat
