70 Rizz Lines to Help You Land Your Next Date

You'll never be at a loss for words in front of your crush again.

It's a tale as old as time: Two people cross paths. They lock eyes. There's interest, there's desire. But there's also a lack of initiative taken. Attraction remaining unspoken, they move on, maybe to never see each other again. Why couldn't I have just thought of something clever to say?, both of them are probably thinking. But don't worry—this doesn't have to happen to you ever again. Because there's a new method of flirting making its way around the dating pool—one that allows you to make contact easily, often, and without shame. Enter the world of rizz lines, the newest craze in modern dating.

What Are Rizz Lines?

Rizz lines are pickup lines but with a post-millennial twist. The word "rizz" is slang for "charisma"—and Gen-Z's way of saying you've got game. Like so many other trends popular with this generation, the trend started to take off after making its way around TikTok and other forms of social media.

Where Should I Use Rizz Lines?

Rizz lines can be said almost anywhere, but there are certain environments in which they would be inappropriate. Think work, funerals, th ER—you see what we're getting at. But they're growing more and more popular in all the obvious places, such as bars, parks, and parties.

Of course, there's another space where this clever wordplay is welcome: Online. There's a reason why these quips took off on social media in the first place. Digital outlets aren't just popular platforms for flirting these days, they're where many people prefer to do it. Now that you know what you're looking for, you'll see rizz lines in gaming rooms, on dating apps, and all over social media.

What Makes a Good Rizz Pickup Line?

A good rizz line should tick three specific boxes: Originality, relevance, and respect. Even the funniest pickup lines get old. Finding ways to evolve your flirting and be creative shows that you can keep up with the times. You also want your attempt to be relevant to the person you're talking to, which indicates that you've taken the time to learn something about them. And maintaining respect will increase your chances of actually getting a response.

What Should I Avoid in a Rizz Line?

No one needs another creep in their DMs. Don't come on too strong, and don't say anything that might offend the person you're trying to impress.
