60 Pick-Up Lines So Cheesy They Just Might Work

We’ve rounded up a list of our favorite cheesy, bad pick-up lines that are so unabashedly awful that you’re almost guaranteed to get a smile.

For as long as there have been single people looking for a relationship (or at least a date for Saturday night), there have been cheesy pick-up lines. Our Neanderthal ancestors used them—you can be sure some Caveman tried a line like “Can I hiber-mate with you through the Ice Age?”—and we continue to use them today, even though apps like Tinder and Bumble have replaced face-to-face first encounters for many singles.

So why have pickup lines survived, even though they make us cringe? Well, probably because they make us cringe. Introducing yourself to someone new is always scary—the possibility of rejection is part of the deal—but if you use a pick-up line that’s just cheesy or silly enough, you might make them laugh, and that’s at least a step in the right direction.
