If you’re a fairly social person, you’ve probably said or heard most of the cheesy pickup lines out there at one point or another. In which case you have certainly come to understand that not all of those one liners are created equal. Some are smart and witty while quite a few more elevate the cringe factor to above the roof levels.
For example, who can forget that infamous line from Jerry Seinfeld:
“Hello, gorgeous! Are you from Jamaica? Because you’re so fine.”
Of course, as a comedian Jerry was saying it completely in jest for the laugh value of how awful it was.
It might be an old and tired method for getting a date, but if done properly it still works.
Thinking of funny and original cheesy pickup lines is a great way to get things flowing if you’re struggling with ideas.
Using a classic cheesy line isn’t going to win you any awards for originality or thoughtfulness, but it can help grease the wheels of your social interactions if things are moving slowly.
What’s more important than coming up with something creative and witty is making sure that whoever you’re talking to feels comfortable with the interaction also.
Please just don’t be creepy and use these lines for evil. Read on and HAVE FUN!
Ahhhh an all time classic, albeit classically bad.
Warning: Don’t Overuse Cheesy Pickup Lines
There’s nothing more boring than a person who only knows a few cheesy pickup lines and uses them on every person they meet. Especially if the next girl at the bar just heard you say it to her friend.
Be interesting and come up with banter that brings up a feature or situation in the current environment that you can both laugh at. That is a great way to get conversation flowing.
If you’re only relying on cheesiness, you’re missing out on a lot of other ways to interact and spark conversations.
Approach each encounter with a sense of humor and remember that people are complex and a lot of them won’t appreciate being treated like a prize that you’re trying to win.
I’m not sure who the cluck thought up this one, but it’s pretty foul.
Keep It Light And Fun
If you keep your cheesy pickup lines light and playful, you’re less likely to come off as creepy or arrogant. You might not get the date, but you’re also less likely to scare someone off or make them feel uncomfortable.
There’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance, but you want to err on the side of former and not the latter. A lot of this perception will be made in your body language and delivery when flirting.
So long as you’re funny, easy-going and friendly, your message will be well received.
Just remember, if someone isn’t receptive to your interest, don’t push or insult them.
Everyone has different tastes and we can’t all be perfect for everyone. Don’t kill your chances by being a jerk if you’re rejected. You never know, taking that rejection in stride might tip the scales in your favor.
The real question here is, are the contents also boyfriend material?
Don’t Be Overly Sexual
If you open with these types of pickup lines chances are good that you’ll only turn off most people by being overly sexual.
You don’t want your first interaction to be seen as creepy, disgusting or even worse, borderline harassment. Use your better judgement and be flirty but appropriate with your pickup lines.
If you’ve ever used a dating app, you already know there is enough of that in the rest of the world that you don’t want to add to it.
If you want to use a slightly sexual pickup line, keep it in the realm of cheeky and light-hearted. Avoid using profane or vulgar words as these can end the conversation as quickly as it starts.
If you’re flirting with someone and there is a good back and forth banter and the chemistry is there, then adding in a bit of sexual innuendo can certainly help to move things along. Just try and avoid going there as an opener.
If this is the style that most interests you, watch videos of the Scottish-American Actor/Comedian, Craig Ferguson that was famous for his flirting prowess on his 10 year run on the Late Late Show on CBS.
Problem is, nobody ever reads the fine print…
Make Them Laugh, Or At Least Smile
Laughter releases Endorphins, the “feel good” chemical in our brains that promote a sense of well-being and happiness.
If your interactions and flirting stimulate the release of this chemical in the other person, you are setting yourself up for success.
Regardless of how long you’ve known a person or how well you know them, they will probably remember you most if you can make them laugh.
If you’re able to crack a joke or two before dropping a cheesy pickup line, you might get away with it without being labelled the “cheesy guy” for the rest of your life.
Make sure that whatever you’re saying is funny and that you’re smiling when you say it.
If you keep it keep the conversation light and humorous and deliver your wit with a smirk, you will be successful.
If you’re going with this line, you probably left your wit at the Library…
Come Up With Your Own Pickup Lines
It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and be inspired by the cheesy lines that are already out there. Before you know it, you’ll be saying;
“Hey, baby, what’s your sign?”
“You must be made of sugar, because you’re so sweet.”
While these are so amazingly awful that they might be great for a laugh with your friends, they’re not the best ideas of asking for a date.
At the end of the day, the best pickup lines are the ones that are coming straight from your own head and that illustrate that you are paying attention to the person and your unique situation.
If you’ve been thinking of someone you’d like to talk to, but you’re having a hard time getting the conversation flowing, giving yourself a few moments to come up with an original line can be the difference between moving past an awkward silence and having a fun conversation.
If your TV could talk, this might be what it would say…
I Heard Girls/Guys Love Bacon!
Depending on how you want to approach this one after the initial comment, you can put a clever spin on this as in the “bringing home the bacon” angle or just the discussing the food.
This also offers the additional positive that you’ll find out if he or she is a vegetarian right away!
If they are a bacon lover, they’ll appreciate this funny line and might start going into a deep conversation about their love of the tasty food.
Bacon lovers are serious people who don’t mess around. If they’re a bacon fan, this line is a great conversation starter and will make them smile.
Who can resist a cute pickup line about their favorite food?
Hey, is that a Rabbit in your hat, or are you just happy to see me?

Ladies, keep reading. I have a program for you too 😉
Be Confident, Be Funny
I’ve mentioned confidence a few times in this article, and for good reason. It’s incredibly important that you feel comfortable and confident with the cheesy line you’ve chosen to use.
Don’t be afraid to play around with different versions, tones, and pitches of your voice. Not only does this help you feel more comfortable with the conversation, but it also shows the other person that you’re confident and secure.
And remember, the best way to be funny is not to try and be funny. Instead, focus on the person you’re talking to, learn more about them, and respond to what they’re saying in a genuine and thoughtful way.
Said no heart surgeon… ever…. I hope…
Some more examples that might get a laugh
- Can I shake your hand? And hold it for awhile?
This is a classic cheesy pickup line that’s been around for ages. It’s a silly line, but just absurd enough that you might catch the other person off guard and get that chuckle.
- In case you’re wondering, I ate pasta last night…
This is a silly pickup line that’s a great ice breaker in any context. You might get a raised eyebrow or two but it certainly opens the door for a quick follow up line and gets the attention of the other person.
Which would be more expensive? The ticket or the date?
Ladies, as promised, I also have a short video of the top 3 mistakes women make that cause good men to lose interest.
This video from “The Devotion System®” explains exactly how to avoid making these attraction-killing errors and keep him coming back for more.
Lock that man in and keep him fascinated with you for as long as you want.
Some Final Thoughts
At the end of the day, the person you want to be thinking about is yourself. You want to be the one who’s confident and secure, and you want to be the one who has the ability to make the other person feel comfortable and at ease.
That’s the best way to successfully break the ice and move past the awkward silence that plagues so many first dates. As cheesy as it might be, using a pickup line can help break the ice, give you something to talk about, and make that other person feel comfortable and confident in talking to you.
This line might work for that cute UBER driver, other than that…
