flirty pick up lines romantic

Whether you’re approaching someone at a bar or messaging them on a dating app, having the perfect flirty pick up lines at your disposal can lay the groundwork for every future conversation.

You want to make sure to catch their attention but in a subtle way. You don’t want to be too over the top or too timid. Offering a good level of funny, flattery, and even cheesiness is key when it comes to starting a flirty conversation with just about anyone.

Of course, romantic pick up lines also need to have a certain amount of sincerity to them for the other person to take them seriously. [Read: How to talk to your crush and get them to like you]

Do pick up lines work?

Sure, some people can start a conversation with “Do you have the time?” and five years later they end up married with three kids. But, that is the exception, not the rule.

The way you open a conversation sets the tone for the rest of the night, day, or whenever, and, potentially, the rest of your relationship. We aren’t saying you must have the perfect flirty conversation starter to have a chance, but it certainly won’t hurt.

After all, saying the wrong thing right off the bat can really damage your chances.

Picking the right flirty pick up line that shows your personality, style, or even your interests is the best way to introduce yourself to someone because it is unique and shows intrigue. [Read: How to flirt with your crush and make them fall hard]

Things to keep in mind before delivering your pick up lines

Have flirty pick up lines failed you in the past? Or are you perhaps new to the whole introducing-yourself-to-a-complete-stranger thing? 

Have no fear. Although rejection is always possible, without taking a little risk, you’ll never be able to get the reward, be that a nice conversation, a night on the town, or a full-on relationship.

It’s important to choose a flirty pick-up line that feels right to you. If it makes you cringe, it’s not the one! You need to be able to deliver it with confidence and a cheeky wink, after all.

Also, read the room a little; are they deep in conversation with someone or does it seem like a bad time? Pick your time wisely to be in with the best chance. [Read: The scientific secrets to getting someone to fall for you]

Flirty, romantic pick up lines have the best outcome when you use them in the appropriate place. That means not at work, not at a funeral, and not to someone in a relationship.

Instead, focus your flirty lines at places like a bar, a mixer, and even dating apps. Romantic pick-up lines are good at breaking the ice, making someone laugh, and showing your interest in a laid-back way.

Keep things light and go in with confidence. If your nerves are really getting the better of you, just remember that this is just one person talking to another person, nothing more. [Read: Flirting – What it is, 5 different types, and how to pick a style that works for you]

Flirty and romantic pick up lines to use

You now know why having a solid flirty pick-up line is beneficial when it comes to meeting people, but knowing isn’t all it takes. Nerves can prevent you from coming up with something creative on the spot.

Something else to keep in mind is that a pick-up line that gets one person’s attention may not work on someone else. So it is always good to have a selection of flirty pick-up lines on standby. This will give you options depending on the situation, and make you feel much more confident when going in for the kill.

Flirty lines to avoid

There are some lines that move away from flirting and head toward creepy or just unoriginal and cheesy. So although we’ve offered you plenty of good ones, here are some to steer clear of just to be safe. Kick these flirty pick-up lines out of your mind!

1. Did it hurt? When you fell from heaven. Because with a face like that, you’ve got to be an angel

This is a pickup line everyone and their mother and aunt and grandma have heard. This is boring, unoriginal, and just overused.

There are much better options when it comes to romantic pick-up lines so you don’t have to rely on the default ones. [Read: You’d be crazy to use these bad pickup lines in real life]

2. If I could rearrange the letters in the alphabet, I’d put U and I together

Another one that is just so blah. Flirting does not mean using a classic yet dull line and hoping it works out. You actually have to interact with the person you’re making the moves on and say something relating to them. 

All this line will do is make them roll their eyes like when we wrote it. [Read: 30 foolproof pick-up lines and 10 you should never ever use]

3. I put the STD in STUD and all I need is U

Do we really have to explain why this is a no-no? Even if you are into self-deprecating humor, this is not the way to go about it. It’s definitely not a good romantic pick-up line, or a good line at all.

4. Anything too intense

Telling someone you love them, asking if they believe in love at first sight, or anything along those lines is just too much during the flirting stage.

Keep it light and fun and try to avoid scaring off your crush. These aren’t the right type of flirty pick-up lines to use! [Read: Whoa-there! Signs you’re coming on way too strong]

5. Anything too sexual

Steer clear of the purely sexual lines. This not only can make someone feel violated and uncomfortable, but it just isn’t the best way to start things out. Instead, choose romantic pick-up lines that aren’t at all sexual.

Romanic and flirty pick up lines will give you a great chance at success!

We’ve been through some romantic pick-up lines that are both flirty and friendly at the same time. Now it’s time to use them and look toward a great day/evening with the person you have your eye on!

Remember to read the room and choose the right time before diving right in there, but when you approach them with a confident stance and a twinkle in your eye, you’ll surely have a full-on date to look forward to.

Flirty pick-up lines are the best way to ensure your conversation doesn’t end anytime soon. These are some of the best. Now, take them out into the real world and give these romantic pick-up lines a go.
