Pickup lines can be kind of cheesy, but sometimes it’s all you’ve got to bridge the gap between you and a woman you’re dying to talk to. As long as you’re not using a creepy or groan-inducing pick up line, a clever/cute/punny line can be a refreshing break from the usual “I saw you across the room and…” or “Hi, what’s your name?”. And if you get a laugh out of it, you can really rest assured you’re going in strong.
Another thing to consider when using a line is that it should be something you actually feel comfortable saying. If you use a line that’s completely out of character for you, it’s going to be obvious to her in the next few minutes of conversation. So, try to go with something natural!

These guys on Reddit shared some of their best pickup lines. Some of these are actually clever and some of them, well, you’ve just got to hand it to them for trying… Check these out for inspiration and then get to coming up with a solid gold line of your own.
I walked up to a cashier and thought she was cute, so I decided eh why not and tried the first pickup line that came to my mind after she finished scanning everything.
“So, if I wasn’t buying all this gatorade, would you still check me out?”
She paused and she blinked a couple times and just started to giggle and blush and I mean, she looked like she was trying so hard to not burst out laughing. Well, being the socially awkward guy I was I literally swiped my card and pressed credit and grabbed my bags as quickly as possible and zoomed out, thinking that I failed miserably…
Edit: took out a couple redundant words
A buddy of mine is really good with women. He does this one thing on our uni campus where he’ll go up to a random girl.
Him: “hey I have a question and need a woman’s advice”
Her: “sure what’s up?”
Him: “let’s say I see a really cute girl, do I go up and talk to her or is that too direct?”
Her: 99.9999% of them say: “you should totally go talk to her.”
Him: he then introduces himself.
I’ve done it two times and got two numbers out of it so it’s clearly a 100% success rate!
“I have a boyfriend ”
“I have an iPod”
“Oh I thought we were talking about things that were irrelevant ”
I’m kidding. I wouldn’t use this
Edit. Hey. Everyone, click that little open more . below mine, yea, I understand that everyone else uses goldfish. I couldn’t remember the full line and used the first thing I saw on my coffee table.
No it’s “and I have a math test next week”
“Oh, I thought we were listing things we would cheat on”
???? I’ve got all these forks and knives all I need is a little spoon.
Con: You’ve always got to carry around cutlery. Pro: You’ve always got cutlery.
Say, “let’s count shoulders!”
Count your own starting from the left to the right with one hand: “1,2…”
Count theirs, sliding your arm around their shoulders as you finish counting: 3, 4!”
Sweat profusely into their shirt.
I’m going to have to ask you to leave. You’re making the other girls look bad.
I have personally used it and succeeded.
Back in college I met a girl at a party. We hit it off, she tells me she’s Russian, and that she speaks the language.
I say “Bullshit! Say something in Russian!” She asks, “what do you want me to say?”.
I replied, “I want you to say ‘kiss me /u/BioLogicMC’.”
I have no idea what she said next, but I kissed her.
Are you my appendix? Because I don’t know anything about you but this feeling in my gut is telling me that I should take you out.
Hey, is that guy bothering you? No? Would you mind if I bothered you then?
Lick finger, touch shirt “Let’s get you out of those wet clothes.
“Hey, feel this…”
they feel it
“Know what that is?”
“That’s boyfriend material.”
(actually works well for any gender)
Get like 20 limes and approach target. Drop them all and then try to pick all them up and say ” can you help me? I’m really bad at pick up limes”
Hey girl, are you a beaver? Because DAM.
Trust me, it’ll usually get a laugh, a smile, or a smirk. Either way, it’s a conversation starter for sure.
My personal favorite comes I believe from Sean Connery:
“My magic watch says you aren’t wearing any underwear.”
“Well your watch must be broken because I am in fact wearing underwear.”
“Damn thing must be ten minutes fast…”
