What Is a Pick Up Line?

In their most innocent form, pick up lines are clever phrases used to show you are interested in getting to know another person.

In either case, pick up lines of the flirty variety are a good icebreaker that will show your intention and interest.

When You Are the Recipient

When you are the recipient of a flirty pick up line, you should already know if you are interested or not. If you are already taken or in a relationship and are not interested, smile and say thank you for the attention, but you are not available. If you are available, but just not interested, simply tell the person you are not interested. If you are interested, be cautious. Get to know the person before handing out your phone number, or worse, going anywhere alone with him or her. Just because a person uses a clever and flirty pick up line does not mean he or she is stable or safe.

Opening a New Romantic Conversation

The best pick up lines are sincere and straightforward. A simple compliment about his or her looks or outfit is a great way to open up a conversation. Asking for permission to sit by the person will help you initiate a conversation.
