For most guys, it can be nerve-wracking to approach an attractive girl, so many of us use pick-up lines to break the ice. We hope you enjoy our list of witty pickup lines that work every time and if you don’t, you’re bound to love our list of the ones that probably won’t!

Pick up lines that work every time

What is a pickup line?

Also known as a chat-up line, a pick-up line is a conversation opener for when you want to engage with a stranger for the purposes of romance or a one-night stand / hook-up.

Pickup lines are often humorous and designed to showcase your wit to a girl that you’re interested in.
Pick-up lines today are unrecognizable to those of yesteryear. Often new lines will involve references to movies, TV shows, celebrities, and anything else that’s of interest to today’s digital generation.

In most cases, pick-up lines are a great way for dudes to attempt to charm girls into bed. They’re often cheeky, sexual, or suggestive so that the girl is made acutely aware of the guy’s intentions as soon as she hears the line.

Do they really work?

That depends on which ones you use and how you use them. For example, if your line is awkward, confusing, or just flat-out inappropriate, you’re probably not going to get very far. But if your line intrigues someone enough that you can begin a conversation, it has done its job!

The secret to using witty chat up lines successfully is context. Instead of commenting on the other person’s appearance, it’s often a better strategy to look to your surroundings for inspiration so as not to embarrass the girl or make her cringe with awkwardness. For example, if you’re in a bar or club, ask her what drink she is drinking or whether she likes the music that the DJ is playing.

Is this all I need to get the girl?

In most cases, not it isn’t. You’ll also need to remember the 3Cs – they are confidence, connection, and a good compliment.

Confidence can be shown by eye contact, a smile, and generally having a cheerful attitude but be careful not to cross the line of being too confident as this can come across as arrogance.

A genuine connection is also essential so if she isn’t smiling back and doesn’t want to engage with you, recognize these signs and move on to the next target. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that with one corny pick-up line you’re gonna get the girl every time. The pick-up line is simply a way to get a girl’s attention and once you have it, you can go to work on building a real connection with her.

And last but by no means least, be sure to compliment the object of your desire – say something nice about her appearance, smile, clothes, etc., and avoid making comments about the size of her boobs or how much you love her ass!
