25 Most Famous Pick Up Lines of All Time

NOTE: If you’re serious about getting better with women, then you need to WATCH THIS VIDEO. It shows you how you can sleep with 6+ girls a week using stealth seduction methods.

From cavemen making suggestive remarks about mammoths to impress their she-folk, to Romeo wooing Juliet on her balcony, the pick up line has always been a useful tool in the seduction process. You may not be the toughest or the best-looking guy, but the right combination of words may well be the key to a woman’s heart.

Yet tradition has led to cliché, and now the pick up line is sometimes seen as corny. Even so, whether your come-on is greeted with approval or skepticism, it’s still a great way to start a conversation or even have something funny to say to your girlfriend. But with so many candidates, which line is the most famous of all?

25. “How YOU doin’?”

One of the newest lines on the list, and it’s all down to a fictional character. Joey from Friends was the heartthrob, so you might want to emulate his success with women. As character impressions go, this is a better choice than, say, Austin Powers.

24. “I’d better get a library card, because I’m checking you out.”

If you’re looking to sound both sleazy and intellectual, this may be the one for you. But don’t go so far as to produce and laminate an actual seduction library card. That’s going a little too far.

23. “Excuse me, but I think I dropped something. My jaw!”

This one requires a lot of confidence – and depends on the delivery. You need to be understated, and not to sound too pleased with your “punchline”. Also, don’t do an actual jaw-drop. It will scare people.

22. “You with all those curves! And me with no brakes!”

A real classic, though one to be careful with. A woman who’s sensitive about her weight may take it the wrong way.

21. “Do you have any raisins? Well, then how about a date?”

A bold choice of an opener – this one couldn’t be anything but a line. Just hope she doesn’t actually have any raisins, or you might get sidelined into the sexy topic of comparing dried fruit.

20. “I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?”

Although probably unlikely to yield direct results, this is still a great conversation starter. Though it may present a problem if the woman is Amish.

19. “You see my friend over there? He wants to know if you think I’m cute.”

This one is great – an indirect approach, and one that makes it clear you’re not on your own. But make sure you do actually have a friend with you, or you might come across as crazy rather than cute.

18. “Do you have a mirror in your pocket? Because I can see myself in your pants.”

A real gamble. This one is best attempted after you’ve had a few drinks. It could be taken badly, but if it’s not, you know you’re in for an interesting night.

17. “I hope you know CPR, because you take my breath away.”

Classy and informative. Not only does it work as a line, but it’s always useful to have a chick with lifesaving skills.

16. “You know what would look great on you? Me.”

Lure them in with a question about fashion, and then crush their hopes (and possibly their body) with your follow-up. Probably a little too threatening, especially if you’re on the heavy side.

15. “Excuse me, but I’m new in town; can I have directions to your place?”

Play the innocent outsider and you may be able to attract a girl who’s looking to take care of you. But don’t use the line if you actually do live nearby or the whole plan will fall apart.

14. “Can I borrow a quarter? I want to call my mom and tell her I just met the girl of my dreams.”

For the old-fashioned romantic. No one could object to this sweet approach, but they may question why you need a quarter when everyone has a cell phone. Hopefully she won’t be that pedantic.

13. “Do you have a map? Because I just keep on getting lost in your eyes.”

This one might be slightly too sweet. Also, make sure you’ve been talking for a while before using this line. Getting lost in the eyes of a stranger from across the room takes a creepy amount of concentration.

12. “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”

On the one hand you’re implying she’s an angel (good); on the other hand you’re implying that she’s a clumsy angel (not so good). You can modify this if you see a girl with an obvious (but not too serious) injury.

11. “What’s your sign?”

This will immediately work on one sort of person, but will immediately turn off the other. Assess your target before using this one. If she’s carrying wind chimes – go for it.

10. “Is there an airport nearby or is that just my heart taking off?”

Don’t try this one if you’re a) already at an airport, or b) suffering from severe chest pains. It would just get confusing.

9. “If I could rearrange the alphabet, I’d put U and I together.”

Cute, but not grammatically correct. Of course, saying “I’d put U and me together” doesn’t make much sense in alphabetical terms, so just hope you’re not talking to a college graduate.

8. “Is it hot in here or is it just you?”

Simple and effective. Using this line in a sauna will either ruin it or make it ten times better. There’s no way of knowing without trying it out.

7. “Your legs must be tired because you’ve been running through my mind all night.”

This famous line must have worked at some point. Still, we’re not sure if you want to imply that a woman is looking tired, even if it’s part of a compliment.

6. “If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?”


We’re now entering the realm of the most famous of pick up lines. No one’s going to take this next one at face value, but it might be lame enough to break the ice.

5. “I didn’t know that angels could fly so low!”

This is probably too earnest to work in the 21st century, but if you’re committed enough you might be able to pull it off. Don’t try it in a heavy metal bar, though. It could be taken as an insult.

4. “Was your father a thief? ‘Cause someone stole the stars and put them in your eyes.”

As conversation starters go, “Was your father a thief?” is about as good as you can get. We’re not sure whether having stars in your eyes would be a good thing in reality though. You’d probably get too hot.

3. “Do you come here often?”

The vanilla of pick up lines. Inoffensive, genuine and slightly boring. But anything this widespread must be successful.

2. “Where have you been all my life?”

One of the best lines of all, this makes you seem romantic and yet interested. It can lead you down so many conversational roads, it’s definitely a great way to say hello, especially if you’re not taking yourself too seriously.

1. “What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?”

The most famous of all pick up lines is patronizing, dismissive and yet incredibly widespread. The majority of women will probably not appreciate being thought of as ‘nice’, so make sure to judge your target well, and lace the line with irony if necessary.

    It’s not rape if you shout SURPRISE!!!

  2. I thought diamonds were most beautiful before I saw u (:

  3. I came up with this one a few months ago. “Your eyes are as green as four leaf covers, and I’d like to get lucky!” Make sure she has green eyes though…

  4. my best pickup line is the one i got with my wife “girl, you so fine i could wipe the floor with that ass”

  5. if I had to choose between breathing or loving you, I would say “I love you” with my last breath!

  6. “when i touched a flower ,it scolded me saying , you are the more tender flower and it guide me to you”….howz it…………it my own lines

  7. wow, those were terrible! most come across as either sleazy or kind of pathetic/ desperate (sorry if I sound too harsh, that’s just how they come across) I’ve encountered almost every single one of these at least once during my 24 years of existence- they didn’t work when I was 15 and they won’t work now- for most girls as well. One of the few passable ones I saw here that might work, was the one about the raisins and only because it was so corny and cute that it could be a good conversation starter depending on the girl. that one comment about randomly saying “polar bear” was kinda cool as well because it’s so random it would probably induce a giggle and some conversation. just my opinion.

  8. I LOVE IT

  9. jenna lyn tulang says

    pick-up lines can motivate us a lot. . but it depends on how we act or style. .
    It doesn’t mean people depend in this kind of conversation in formal situation. .

  10. Elmo the Grouch says

    What happened to “Is it illegal to look that good this early/late during the day?”

    Some people say that these pick up lines don’t work, some say they do. I say they do work. It just all depends on the girl’s mood and if she thinks you’re cute and can sense your confidence.

    If a girl finds you attractive, you can go up to her and literally say anything and she’ll respond positively (just as long as you say whatever you want to say with confidence, and your line isn’t offensive or repulsive).

    • It not what you you say its how you say it

      • PUA Training says

        So if I walked up to a girl and said “Hey smelly head, you smell!” do you think she’d like me Michael? :)

        • In a clubbing precint, theres a huge chance she would laugh if you said it boldly…
          Its not offensive and saying a word like “smelly” she would have to know you are joking (If not shes a retard, neeeeext)
          Although for a woman to “like you”, you would have to banter a little more and build some rapport…

          Another good pickup line is: Look, I promised my friends I wouldnt be going home with anyone tonight..
          Did you just grab my ass?

  11. Eisenschmidt says

    Most of these are a good laugh, but honestly I have had the best luck with “Hi my name is ______” wait…I met two long term relationships that way, better not to use that one.

  12. JugglaJosh420 says

    12 Should be used in succession with #5

    "I never knew Angels could fly so low!"

    (Females response)

    "So, did it hurt when you fell from heaven?"

  14. CrazyCousinLance says

  15. How about 'whats a girl like you doing in a nice place like this ..?' :-)

  16. Akshay Taksande says

    The " Do you come here often" has ruined my day many times.

  17. Pro Seduction Traini says

    this will really help you. you should get what it has to offer. check it out. NOTHING TO LOSE. WOMEN TO GAIN! http://www.proseductiontraining.com

  18. Gambler,
    the best pick-up line isn't a line at all. It's the way you present yourself. If you present yourself as well in person as you do in the picture on here, any line will work for you ;)
    BTW, I have a daughter in the UK. I wonder if she reads your articles. Are you anywhere near London? I'm sending her your article so she can check you out.

  19. I just want the guys to know that even though your pick-up line might not work…the effort is appreciated (by women that are worth it).

  20. if the reply to number 2 is ,'well for the first 30 years, I wasn't born yet………. then you may be out of luck.

  21. If you were a booger I'd pick you first!

  22. bronxbull1166 says

    all corny "Can I tongue your ass?" works for me

  23. You make me want to thank God for all the mistakes I've made – because they all led me to you!

    Do you believe in love at first sight? How 'bout I walk past you again!

    We'll meet again when the winds, time and change bring us back togeather – which will probably be tomorrow night.

    Keep it real : )

  24. joseph cuthill-coutt says

    Your teeth look like stars ….do they come out every night..

  25. hahahaha In reality, only #1 and #3 could work. I hope the rest don't cuz they are corny

    thanks for the laugh!! :)

  26. "Have you ever had the backs of your thighs licked?"

  27. indeed, quite interested to know…..

  28. Sad to say, I have heard a few of these pick-up lines and none of them worked; at all.I guess, I am too darn particular. Some of them are really good and they work… want to know which ones that I know that do?

  29. Cool article. My favourites not in here though…

    Say to a girl "Polar bear" She will nearly always say "What?" Then you say "Sorry, i just wanted to say something that might break the ice!"

    Sorry, that was awful. It does get a laugh though!
