Pick up lines or chat lines, whatever you call them, it’s definitely something that all of us have been exposed to.
These lines are usually catchphrases or jokes that aim to breaks the a person uses to break the ice when they meet someone they’re attracted to. Many of us have either been at the rear end of a chat up line or faced the horror of trying to swerve them.
Wikipedia has a very elaborate way to define a them; “A pick-up line or chat-up line is a conversation opener with the intent of engaging an unfamiliar person for romance or dating. Pick-up lines range from straightforward conversation openers such as introducing oneself, providing information about oneself, or asking someone about their likes and common interests, to more elaborate attempts including flattery or humor.”
After reading this, constructing one doesn’t seem so hard; state your name, say something interest about yourself, maybe state something you observed about that person and finish it with a joke. Easy right? Wrong! Some people really get it so wrong.
In the growing age of social media, many pick-up lines are read on Instagram, Tinder or Facebook. However, you might be one of the lucky people to still get hit with one in person. The reality is sometimes it works…sometimes it really doesn’t.
