From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A pick-up line (or chat-up line) is a conversation opener with the intent of engaging an unfamiliar person for humor, romance, or dating. Overt and sometimes humorous displays of romantic interest, pick-up lines advertise the wit of their speakers to their target listeners.

Pick-up lines range from straight forward conversation openers; at its simplest as "hi", going through the full range to the most elaborate attempts including humor such as "If you were Spock's phaser, you would be set to stun" or "If I could rearrange the alphabet, I would put 'U' and 'I' together". Also, they can be to flirt, such as "Do you have a map, because I keep getting lost in your eyes."

Different categories of pickup lines are commonly defined and popularly discussed e.g.

  • Cocky & funny lines: This definition of pick up line was espoused by David DeAngelo, a well known dating coach. It is a form of merging an arrogant 'cocky' attitude and being funny into a single pick up line. He proposed this as the most effective way of engaging someones attention in a social situation.
  • Opinion openers: These are a type of pick up line which is espoused most subtle. In stark contrast to the traditional pickup lines, but they serve the same purpose. They involve asking an opinion of the other person provoking a response aimed at an ongoing conversation.


  • Excuse me Miss, before I flirt with you, are there any boyfriends I have to worry about?
