51 Cheesy Pick-Up Lines to Attract the Person You Want
Even more so, who was the first person to ever use a pick-up line, is it documented? Why do pick-up lines even work when we know some of them are total bologna? We wanted to know the ins and outs of pick-up lines ourselves, so before we tell you what to say, let’s find out a little bit as to why we say them.
Brief History of Pick-up Lines
While the first pick-up line ever wasn’t exactly recorded in the history books, one has to wonder where such a thing came from. In the beginning days of pick-up lines, it was more of a comedic thing than anything and they were known as “chat-up” lines, as a way to make a girl laugh and then chat with you.
Perhaps the coolest part of these cheesy one-liners is the fact that they started out in comedy skits and in cheesy plays, where the actors were trying to swoon their lady or their crush and instead, they would just make her (and the audience) laugh. This probably explains why most pick-up lines just sound so funny instead of appealing.
Obviously, there is some kind of appeal to these lines though right, otherwise, they wouldn’t have worked for so long, right?
Why Do Cheesy Pick-up Lines Work?
Ok, so they might not always work, but in general, what makes something so corny and almost something that seems so disingenuine, work so well on most people? Why is it that something so small can really be the thing that starts (or even kills) a relationship?
The laughter that comes with it is the key. They say laughter is the best medicine, laughter brings you closer together, and if you can make a girl laugh she’ll love you forever. So when you greet someone with a silly and fun, yet cheesy pick-up line and you make them laugh – you just might have set the tone for your entire, brand new relationship.
If you can make someone laugh one of the first times they meet you, especially the first time they ever meet you, that’s something that never goes away, it sticks in their mind forever, and they’ll go their whole day, maybe even their whole week, thinking about you and what you said or did to make them laugh. There’s also something intriguing about someone who can make you laugh, it certainly makes you wonder what else they could do for you if they could stimulate your brain.
Which Pick-up Line Do I Use?
There isn’t really a set of rules when it comes to pick-up lines, you either say it and she/he likes it or you say it and they roll their eyes and walk away – it really just depends on the person you are talking to and the environment you are in. Which points us to the answer, be wary of the environment you are in when you decide to bring out your comedic skills to your crush.
Why does the environment you are in matter so much? It’s simple really. Take for instance a funeral, you wouldn’t want to hit on someone there, instead, you would want to hug and console someone.
Or let’s say if you are at the movie theater with a group of people, it’s probably not the best time to lean over and try hitting on the girl.
Instead, use context clues, hand movements, and gestures, body language, and then, of course, the environment you are in to pick up on when you should and shouldn’t be throwing out those cheesy one-liners.
If you see he or she is in a terrible mood and they aren’t talking much to anyone, tread carefully. You might make them laugh but you could also make them dislike you because to them, you aren’t respecting their feelings at that moment.
It’s all about that timing, man.

Testing Pick-up Lines
Before you cast out that pick-up line, please test the waters. This means not only do you need to check the environment, but you need to know who it is you are trying to reel in. Is she funny? Is she witty and intelligent? Is she naughty?
Believe me, these will matter depending on which line you decide to choose.
Let’s say, for instance, you’ve been crushing on a really intelligent, book smart, nerdy girl with glasses. The last pick-up line you want to use is one that either A. makes fun of smart girls, or B.
Talks really dirty and sounds super immature to her. You’ll need to use an intelligent and witty line on her to really get her attention, otherwise, you could really risk the chance of losing her altogether.
On the other hand, you might have a really laid back, down to earth chick who loves to laugh and will laugh at the silliest, smallest things. These are the girls you could try a little something more with but still tread carefully if you don’t know her sense of humor.
There’s something about a really ugly pick-up line that could ruin a relationship before it even starts, so make sure you know the person you are trying to attract.
Pick-up lines are meant to be silly, cheesy, sometimes dirty, and of course, they are meant to attract the person you are casting out your line to. Always be aware of your surroundings when you decide it’s time for one of those witty lines, and make sure you’re not stepping on anyone’s toes or hurting feelings with the words you say.
Unfortunately, there are lots of people who will turn away from you forever over a first impression, so as we said before, make that first impression last – in a positive way.
