19 Best Pick Up Lines for Girls to Use on Guys that Actually Work
When you think of pick up lines you probably think of a creepy guy trying to hit on you in a bar, but there are pick up lines for girls to use on guys too.
Although pick up lines seem like one simple sentence to get someone to go home with you, that is not true. Pick up lines are conversation openers. They are a clever way to start a chat with someone. There are also pick up lines for girls to use on guys. It’s not just the guy’s game!
Pick up lines can be clever, sexual, flirty, or simple. As long as they grab the person’s attention in a positive way, they’ve done their job. The reason pick up lines are so popular is that they make introducing yourself to someone a bit smoother and less nerve-racking.
Nowadays, pick up lines aren’t just used at bars and coffee shops but mostly when online dating. When talking is your only method of creating a connection with someone, the opening line can be pretty important.

Pick up lines are for everyone
At one time, pick up lines were mostly used by men to introduce themselves to women. But, two decades into the new century and now, women can do everything men can do, maybe more.
Pick up lines are not just one-liners to put you and the guy you’re hitting on at ease. But they act as ways to show off your personality. They can be the kickoff point for a connection. And when a woman takes that step to start the conversation, not only does it show confidence to the guy, but it helps actually build confidence too.

Another benefit for women using pick up lines is that women are a lot less likely to seem creepy or aggressive when hitting on a guy. When a woman approaches with a clever joke or even a cheesy line, it is enduring and bold.
Even on a dating app, if a woman messages first with a good pick up line, it not only helps the guy relax because he no longer has to come up with one himself, but it shows that you are putting effort into the conversation and not expecting him to carry it.
So, although pick up lines may get a bad reputation, they are actually immensely helpful in starting a conversation that could lead to romance. [Read: 21 Tinder conversation starters that’ll intrigue anyone instantly]

#1 I never do this, but I didn’t want to regret not introducing myself to you. This is simple and classic but very effective and flattering. [Read: How to introduce yourself to a guy: Your guide to impress any guy]
#2 Are you an Avenger? Because I think we’re endgame. This is more of a pop culture pick up line. They may not get it if they aren’t into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it is worth a try if you are.
#3 Nice shirt. You know what it’s made of? Looks like boyfriend material. A lot of times when I see a pick up line that includes the term boyfriend or girlfriend material, it is someone referring to themselves in that way. I prefer to switch it. Making the other person the subject of the pick up line will catch their attention more.
#4 You know what’s on the menu? Me “n” u. This one is ideal for meeting someone at a bar or restaurant. You can also use it if you are already planning a date and want to throw in a fun little line. [Read: 15 easy conversation starters you can use with a guy you like]
#5 Your bio isn’t giving me much to work with. If you’re online dating and matched with someone who’s bio leaves a lot to the imagination, go ahead and call them out on that. When I was online dating, this was my go-to move because so many guys I came across had minimal information or none at all for me to go off of for an introduction.
#6 Hey, is your dad a boxer? Because you’re a knockout. This sort of pick up line is not my personal favorite. But, it is clever. These are best used on dating apps where people expect something clever.
If you walked up to someone on the street and said this, it would be a bit weird.
#7 I think there’s something wrong with my phone. Your number’s not in it. This is a smooth way to ask for someone’s number in person or via a dating app. It is funny and a bit cheesy, but not too over the top. [Read: 17 amazing conversation starters to get something going]
#8 Do you like raisins? How do you feel about a date? This one is too sweet not to include. I wish I had heard this when I was still single. I’d have loved to use this on a dating app. It is cheesy and punny. If you like it and it works on someone, it’ll let you know you have a similar sense of humor.
#9 Are you a loan? Because you’ve got my interest. This pick up line is a bit more specific. However, it is ideal if you happen to see someone you’re attracted to at the bank.
#10 Do I know you? Because you look a lot like my next boyfriend. This is another one that isn’t all that original. A classic is always great if you’re not sure which direction to go in. [Read: How to look cool in front of a guy without breaking a sweat]
#11 Not even Snape could Severus apart. As a Harry Potter fan, I had to include this one. If you notice someone rocking any Harry Potter fan merchandise, this is a winning line.
#12 I was feeling a little off today, but now that I’ve seen you I’m turned on. This is definitely a bit more flirty and sexy that some of the others. If you are feeling really good about your chances, this is a bold move.
#13 Ah, my teeth are aching. You’re just too sweet. This is another cheesy and semi-unoriginal pick up line. I rarely hear it come from girls. But, guys like being called sweet too. [Read: 27 conversation tips to stand out on dating apps]
#14 I’m sure you’re taken, but I had to introduce myself. This is great for someone who is a bit nervous about rejection. It gives them an easy out. Bonus, one where you won’t feel so down if it doesn’t work out.
#15 Do you like girls who make the first move? This is more of a question than a line. But, it is a great way to show that you go after what you want and aren’t ashamed to do it.
#16 Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m free tomorrow, how about you? Go back to the past with this classic rhyme. Go right in for a date!
#17 Titanic. Sorry, that was a terrible ice breaker. Okay, this could be viewed as insensitive, but for those with that sense of humor, this could be comedy gold.
#18 Use their name. Sorry, that isn’t the pick up line. When online dating, if you want to give your pick up line a little more personalization, google their name and “pick up line.” You will find puns and other jokes that work with their name to grab their attention.

#19 Use emojis. When it comes to online dating, make fun of your use of pick up lines. Everyone loves someone that can laugh at themselves. Type out a line of pick-up truck emojis. Then write, “Do you like my pick up line?” *That one made me giggle*.
